“high school epitomized that exact ideal: let’s segregate the “top” scholastic talent (i.e, “non-threatening-looking”) of black children in our school system from the core group of black students we cant identify with and place them for the duration of their high school experience within the classroom of “top” white students (i.e, also “non-threatening-looking”, but smattered with the “popular-pretty” and the “popular-dumb jock” - those best suited to take full scholastic advantage of the “studious uncool”)… this meant that i was the only black guy, along with 4 black girls, in my classroom for the entire four years (the “excel program” was an experimental program - no need in placing more than one ‘gifted’ black male into a study group, not until we know exactly what they are capable of!)…”—more than mud, who is this guy and why is he reading my diary out loud?

You turn out five or ten years later to be a dope. On the other hand, it may turn out that you said something that a later reader will find valuable for further investigation. ” Gilbert Sorrentino in interview with Partisan Review, 1981

“In recent years, historians working on eighteenth-century consumerism have turned their attention from the elite to the poorer half of the population. John Styles is one of a group of scholars who have revolutionized our view of the plebeian culture of this period, replacing the earlier emphasis on poverty and exploitation with evidence of a much more colourful society, in which the poor were active consumers. The Dress of the People brings together findings originally published as articles with much new material to produce an enthralling and very attractive book.”—The Dress of the People, Everyday Fashion in Eighteenth-Century England.. drool x2
