Social Issue of the Day: GENERATIONS/GENERATIONAL GAP

Background information for this project

Social Issue of the Day: PRIVILEGE

Comment of the Day:

“The thing about able-bodied actors playing disabled roles is a fine line. On one hand, finding someone who can be authentic is important, so the story isn’t being objectified. On the other hand, it’s called acting.”

Social Issue of the Day: INTERSECTIONALITY

Comment of the Day:

“Just because I smoke weed doesn’t mean I can’t vote, that I can’t be a part of my community. Just because I drink or twerk, doesn’t mean I don’t love or respect myself as a Black woman. Accepting people’s intersectionality – oh, she goes to church, but she drinks. She’s a person, and she’s a human too.”

Social Issue of the Day: GENERATIONS/GENERATIONAL GAP

Comment of the Day:

“If you just go back to the Civil War and why it was fought, they didn’t necessarily despise slavery. They were moving toward the Industrial Revolution and it actually would cost them more to rely on slave labor. So what do you do? You abolish slavery.”

“Children are being taught less and less history. Today, a student can name only Rosa Parks (who was not the first to refuse her seat, it was a 13-year-old girl) and MLK Jr. A good student will name Malcolm X, and a star student will name Thurgood Marshall. Also, history books are changing.”

“Where’s our power? We can start redefining what success is supposed to look like. My father didn’t respect my work because I didn’t go to college and don’t have a downtown kind of job. When he saw me interviewed on TV for my impact on the community, he finally got it. But it took someone else to make my success valid. My uncles only want to know why I’m not married.”

“There was someone who was talking about being the only one of her co-workers that represented multiple groups (gender, race, age) and how hard she had to fight to be taken seriously. That sat with me because I’m in a field of science where women are kind of new to it and slightly underrepresented. She’s acknowledged for her skills but not all of the pieces of who she is.”
