from Brett

This week my friend J sent me a snapchat tutorial on how to apply lipstick, something I have struggled with my whole life. The only other time I can remember feeling that loved and supported was when one of my sisters made me a workout video to the sweet sounds of Beyoncé’s “Love on Top.”

I really hope you get the attention you deserve this long weekend. Now, onto some of this week’s news and internet highlights:

  • My Berry Fast, a piece on becoming a woman, ceremony, and learning.
  • Gauge conversational sexism with this handy tool! Best part is, you never had to walk into a hardware store to get it. Omg, imagine using it in a hardware store.
  • A piece on the mothers of those who have been murdered by police, as they make their mourning public: “What people don’t understand, or what I want people to understand, is that we’re doing this work, it’s not for our kids anymore. My son is dead. We do it for changes so another mother won’t have to feel the pain that we’re going through … It wasn’t for our sons. It was for the future.”
  • In Poor Meme, Rich Meme, Aria Dean thinks about memes as a form of Black cultural production that both “reiterate the inequities between black creators and white appropriators, and [that] can also move us into a new collective blackness.” I highly recommend you read this piece for its rigorous use of Black studies to understand our everyday interactions with memery.
