"One of the easiest ways to create something that white people will like is to create something that will allow them to feel smart but doesn't require a large amount of work, time, or effort."

"What can shake up our colossal indifference? Clearly, most of us don't even know about the horror and pain we inflict on billions of birds and mammals in our meat factories. But there is no good excuse for this, is there? It's more likely that we don't want to know—cannot afford to know for our own sake—so we turn a blind eye and trust the artifice of bucolic imagery on meat packaging. Many see parallels here with the German people's willful denial of the concentration camps that once operated around them, or call those who partake of factory-farmed meat little Eichmanns. 'For the animals, it is an eternal Treblinka', wrote Issac Bashevis Singer."

Using spare narration and stunning imagery, Chris Jordan's feature film "Midway" explores the plight of Laysan albatross plagued by ingestion of our plastic trash. Both elegy and warning, the film explores the interconnectedness of species, with the albatross on Midway as a mirror of our humanity.

"I’m angry that linguistic elitism is so deeply embedded in our social discourse with so little critical analysis. I’m angry that it took me four years of being slapped in the face with the daily realities of poor literacy skills before I finally relinquished my own prescriptive bayonet. As a member of a marginalized group myself, I am hyperconscious of other, more well-recognized types of privilege – male privilege, white privilege, straight privilege, able-bodied privilege. I want to be vigilant about the ways that I might be contributing to the marginalization of others. And the more I understand about my fellow human beings, the more I recognize the importance of taking the time to stop, listen, and learn about their struggles before unleashing my own careless judgements. I have by no means become a saint in this regard – I still have redhead moments where I snark before I think – but I am committed to finding better ways to engage with people whose opinions, experiences and means of expression are different from mine."
