Samuel L. Jackson is an icon. He's the one who mastered the word "motherf*cker" in the way that it was meant to be used and appreciated. His wild-eyed, no-nonsense facial expressions over anything ****** stupid is beyond reproach.

He's basically every teacher's kindred spirit. Once you hit level Jackson in your classroom, you can't really go back.

JV gets a pass (I think) but remember black emojis are in fact digital blackface.  :wink:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cyq6fTYxztc

Good to see licence payers' money going to useful causes.

(trigger warning, youtube contains historical blackface scenes which might traumatise you)

I do. Not sure how I feel about that video though. I think it depends on the context that emojis are used in. In this situation, I don't think it would be bad if a white person used that Sam Jackson gif.

I was really on the fence for a lot of that clip. Like, context is super important in gauging whether something is okay or not. And like, blackface is, in pretty much every circumstance, inappropriate and rude. It's just not necessary.

The biggest problem with that clip is the clickbaity 'black emojis and gifs are digital blackface' bit, but then at the end, she dials it waaaaay back and says, basically 'just think about why you're using this particular emoji or gif.'

And there is absolutely nothing wrong with telling people that they should at least just examine their reasons for doing something, or think about why they're doing it. And I think there would be a lot fewer crappy people around if people did just that.

That blackface emoji video is literally the end of humanity. Might as well all nuke the entire planet.

Right? I love Samuel L.  Sometimes I use a black person, sometimes I use a white woman, or a bloody frog.

Samuel L. Jackson is an actor, his entire career is based on him trying to get us to relate to the emotions and feelings that he portrays on screen. We relate, and we use the GIF to show others how we feel.

This is shit you learn in pre-school; how to relate to other's emotions.

There's a word for that........... ah right, empathy.

Don't you know that any entertainers that you see that are black are kept in cages and prodded with stun guns? Also, they get fed two bowls of oatmeal, a banana and 3 maxim sticks every day as rations.

They certainly aren't like white entertainers. They're basically indentured servants.

She showed a picture of a white eoman with dreads.  Does that mean black people shouldn't straighten their hair?
She frowned on black people (and Michael Jackson)being usef in memes by white folk.  Does that mean black folk can't use memes of white people (and Rachel Dolezal) in memes?

I smell hypocrisy here....

Nearly 2 billion children – about 93 percent of the world’s children under the age of 15 – breathe toxic, putrid air that’s so polluted it puts their health and well-being at serious risk, a new report said.

Many of the children die: The United Nations' World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 600,000 children died in 2016 from lower respiratory infections caused by dirty air.

“Polluted air is poisoning millions of children and ruining their lives,” said Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the WHO. “This is inexcusable. Every child should be able to breathe clean air so they can grow and fulfill their full potential.”

Air pollution can affect children's cognitive ability and can also trigger asthma as well as cancer. Children who have been exposed to high levels of air pollution may be at greater risk for chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease later in life.

The problem is most severe in low- and middle-income countries, the report said, primarily nations in Africa, Southeast Asia, the eastern Mediterranean and western Pacific.

Park Won-soon, mayor of Seoul, South Korea, said "the WHO report clearly shows that adults' daily behaviors are threatening the health of innocent children. No single adult on the planet can be free from the pain suffered by our children due to air pollution."

Ohhhh man.... OHHH MAN you would not belieeeve what I just found out.

My second school told me I won't be doing speaking tests... at all.

Instead, they've opted to have the students memorize and recite dialogue.

WHY AM I HERE!?!?  :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:

This literally means that everything I've taught this semester won't even be put to the test. WHAT THE ACTUAL @#$%!?!?

This year, my open class was cancelled. And my co-teacher said, it's pointless to change it to another date, because at our school, parents never show up for the foreign teachers class.

This is pretty standard. I mean, it's annoying. But it's not really surprising.

How is memorize and recite dialogue any different from your standard Korean "speaking test"?
