Alert iSteve reader iSteve_reader notes that Professor Salamishah Tillett, author of that New York Times op-ed about how Serena Williams’s Tennis Temper Tantrum has liberated the many black women who are angry that they have been stereotyped as angry black women to finally act out on their anger against other people noticing they are angry, is not just any old angry black woman. Prof. Tillett is a Professional Angry Black Woman who has served as an Ivy League lecturer in the apparently booming field of Black Rage Studies.

Her 2017 course at the U. of Pennsylvania:

courses > graduate > 2017 spring
Black Rage: Race, Affect, and the Politics of Feeling
ENGL 570.401
crosslisted as: AFRC 570, GSWS 570
instructor(s): Salamishah Tillet
Tuesday 9-12:00

“To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious” wrote James Baldwin “is to be in a state of rage almost all the time.” While more attention has been paid to how other feelings like forgiveness or love have been the moral underpinnings to African American social movements, this class makes an effort to look at the history of and value this more difficult but equally important African American cultural expression of black rage, one that is often maligned as a destructive [needs a noun] and subject to hyper-surveillance and suppression. We will take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding this phenomenon by looking at the discourse surrounding events, like Nat Turner’s slave rebellions, Stonewall, the Attica Uprising, and Black Lives Matter, historicize the construction of “black rage” as a medical disorder and legal defense, study its offshoots, like “protest psychosis” and the “Angry Black Woman,” and examine how artists as vast Richard Wright

Unfortunately, Professor Tillet’s efforts at proofreading her own prose were only half-vast.

, Nina Simone, Alice Walker, Glen Ligon, Public Enemy, Kara Walker, and Solange have explored it as a site of black resistance. Focusing on one of the most misunderstood African American political emotions — black rage — this course will examine how artists and activist have steadily moved it from the margins of black life into to [sic] the mainstream in American culture.

Her idea that Black Rage is now in the mainstream in American culture seems plausible. Indeed, perhaps Black Rage is the mainstream in American culture at the moment.

Not surprisingly, beyond her thought leadership in Black Rage Studies, Professor Tillet is also a national leader in the emerging scholarly field of Beyoncé Studies:

Family Feuds: Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Solange and the Meaning of American Music
ENGL 084.401
crosslisted as: AFRC 226, GSWS 224
instructor(s): Salamishah Tillet
TR 3-4:30
fulfills requirements:
Sector 2: Difference and Diaspora of the Standard Major
Sector 6: 20th Century Literature of the Standard Major

Taking Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” Solange’s “A Seat At The Table,” and Jay-z’s “4:44” as a point of departure, this class will focus on the role of popular music as “politics” within contemporary American culture. While these albums are clearly neither the first nor the only musical expressions to delve into the matters of black lives, feminism, and sexuality today, they do mark a very significant political and personal evolution for these individual artists and their audiences as they relate to the defining issues of our time. By looking at how each artist engages their influences (Nina Simone is [a] staple for all three) and discussing how these albums challenge musical forms and incorporate different visual mediums, this course will reflect on the conversations these artists are having with each other and examine their cultural impact in order to understand the limits and possibilities of black musical expressions as sites of social change.

Merging Black Rage Studies and Beyoncé Studies could produce some important interdisciplinary scholarship. I could foresee in the near future a grad level research seminar devoted to the question of “Who Would Win In a Fight: Beyoncé or Serena?” Guest lecturers offering important perspectives could include Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.

Perhaps Don King could come out of retirement to make one last contribution to the Life of the Mind by promoting a Beyonce vs. Serena seminar, with an undercard of a rematch of the popular Solange vs. Jay-Z Elevator debate.

This could do massive Pay per View business in urban centers. Indeed, the pre-colloquium weigh-in could break PpV records by itself. Suggested topics for discussion between Beyonce and Serena during the weigh-in include:

“You are losing the baby weight so slowly that …”

“Compared to my husband, your husband is so poor that …”

“I may have 37 highly paid writers working on my material, but your nerd husband crowdsources your Dozens insults on Reddit.”

“Sure, white male racism is why you have won only 23 major championship titles, but they only gave me 22 Grammys, so I’m the bigger victim.”

“You grew up around so many white kids at tennis school that you own five electric guitars and listen to Green Day.”

And to broaden the appeal to the pro-Trump parts of the country, Don could add a rematch of the legendary 2009 I’m A Let You Finish discussion between Kanye West and Taylor Swift.

For intellectuals, there could be a rematch of the celebrated Upper West Side Escalator Encounter between little Ta-Nehisi Coates Jr. and Elaine “C’mon!” Benes.

In a more crowd-pleasing event early on the card, BBQ Becky would get what’s coming to her.

Add an opening Festschrift featuring the rising star Hammerhand Cheerleader vs. some Bumette of the Month and academia will never be same.

Let’s make this happen, people!

It’s who we are.

    Yeah Serena vs. Beyonce is no kind of match up at all.

    Serena vs. Jay-Z, that's match-up.

    Jay-Z has the reach, but Serena has the weight, is younger and has the "fire and in the belly".

    Afterall, Serena is standing up against sexism. Here's her chance.

    Mrs. Michael "Michelle" Robinson, hands down. She sports a perpetual scowl -- that is one VERY angry black woman, on 24/7 hair trigger for a tantrum. Orpah and Bouncy seem pretty cheerful. I suspect Serena would become sullen, but not explode in rage.

  7. I know everyone is thinking Serena would prevail easily, but what if in the clinch she inadvertently pulled out some of Beyonce’s weaves? In that scenario I could easily foresee Beyonce giving Serena that “oh no you di’n’t!!!” glare and then opening up a can of mulatta whoop-ass on the hapless negress.

    I’m curious whether Serena’s older (and more attractive) sister has ever exhibited the same kinds of emotional outbursts. I’m not a huge tennis fan, but I did see Venus play at the US Open many years ago. She seemed more even tempered. Serena always seems to have a scowl on her face, while Venus generally has welcoming smile.

    The PED’s didn’t seem to have affected Venus as severely as they did Serena, so maybe less ‘roid rage? I don’t know if that is because she did less than her kid sister, or they didn’t have as much effect on Venus.

    “To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious” wrote James Baldwin “is to be in a state of rage almost all the time.”

    Whether from ignorance or from a surfeit of Black Rage, Baldwin included the phrase “in this country” which is clearly inappropriate. Even the most cursory examination of negro behaviour worldwide shows them to be a remarkably violent race, especially in places where there are few or no white people to shoulder the blame for it.

    But we won’t let that little detail prevent us from blaming white people everywhere, now will we? It’s what they’re there for, after all. While there are still any left.

    Serana’s first move out of the box would be to windmill at Beyonce for 20 seconds. Then to grab Beyonce by her crypto-Becky good hair and bounce her around the fight ring. This match would be done in under a minute.

    I am quite impressed by Salamishah Tillett’s four academic credentials. One might call this overkill. But the burning question remains: If she is so smart how come she doesn’t have a hyphenated last name?

    Carlos Ramos is a Portuguese national, so he can go blow.

    BTW, are there female tennis officials? I say start getting women into that field and officiating womens' matches. It can't be that hard.
    , @anonymous
    Carlos is being construed as the perpetrator, not the victim.

    Therefore (by the Law of Latino Mutability) he is white.

    If Serena were white, Carlos (by the same law) would be Latino and Serena would be guilty of a hate crime, for all to see. But then, if Serena were white she'd have been playing tennis instead of acting black.

  16. Beyonce is a legitimate descendant of the Louisiana persons of color on her mother’s side, and they never thought of themselves as black. But I guess it pays now. Her sister is really the angry one.

    Martina Navratilova of all people wrote a mostly sane article in the NY Times, explaining the technicalities of the code violations, with a little inside back story about how players handle these things, and believe it or not, held Serena at fault. Yeah, there was the usual sob-sister temporizing about how marginalized and otherized poor Serena has had it, but she mostly blamed Serena for misbehavin’.

  17. CCZ says:

    “Rage” is definitely her middle name and desegregating black anger is her mission.

    She describes her book “All The Rage: “Mississippi Goddamn” and the World Nina Simone Made” as follows:

    On September 15, 1963, Nina Simone rushed to make a gun after learning that four little girls, none of them older than fourteen, had been killed by a bomb during Sunday school in Birmingham, Alabama. When she failed to build a gun, she produced something far more potent: her most famous protest song, “Mississippi Goddam.” Using her debut of this song at Carnegie Hall as my site of departure, All The Rage: “Mississippi Goddamn” and the World Nina Simone Made tells the unlikely story of how Simone rescued, and redeemed, black rage, a political emotion that African Americans performers had until that moment mainly hid from white America for fear of being demonized, reduced to stereotype, or victimized by violence. Once Nina unleashed her song to the world, her rage gained new currency and urgency its afterlife, giving successive generations of African Americans — from the Black Power Movement to Black Lives Matter – the permission to express their own anger more boldly and confidently than the group before.

    But, this book simultaneously tells another story: the segregation of anger in American life, why certain groups are politically rewarded for expressing it, others are punished for it, and our steadfast resistance to considering black rage as a legitimate and righteous response to trauma and the ultimate antidote to the racist terror. All The Rage tells a dueling history of America, of the upside, and downside, of anger; the price paid by and potential of black artists who at their height of their popularity out their rage, not as a rejection of America, but in fact is its deepest reclamation; not a turning inward, but a facing outward, giving the nation’s yet another chance to get democracy right.

    I'm guessing the fearless Becky cheerleader works out a lot, and this gave her physical courage against a much bigger, oleaginous opponent. Lean beats bulk every time. I'm guessing that she is serious about cheer-leading in college and trains as a gymnast. Also, the video suggests she knew some wrestling moves. I'd bet Becky could take down Beyonce, but she might need a Becky tag team to take down Serena.

    I just have watched Saturday’s U.S. Open Women’s Final’s being replayed on the Tennis Channel. The trouble did not even begin until early in the second set of the best-of-three-sets match, after Serena Williams already had lost the first set by two breaks, 6-2. She was given a warning because her coach, sitting in her official box, was giving her hand signals, instructing her to move in toward the net. It was patently clear that he was attempting to coach her; whether she requested it, wanted it, paid attention to it, or followed it, at all, is utterly irrelevant to the rule violation for which the warning was given. She subsequently broke her tennis racquet by throwing it to the ground. Because she had been warned already, she was penalized one point. She again verbally attacked the umpire, who never once raised his voice to her, calling him a liar and a thief, and demanding again that he apologize to her for accusing her of cheating. For calling him a liar and a thief, she was penalized a game; since her opponent, Naomi Osaka, was serving, it was a game that Serena Williams very likely would have lost, regardless. (Under the previous rule, she would have defaulted the match, then and there!) Serena Williams then held serve, before Naomi Osaka held serve herself to win the match, 6-2, 6-4. Serena Williams refused to shake the referee’s hand, instead demanding, yet again, that he apologize to her. Her coach readily admitted that he had been coaching her from her official box, when she was issued her first warning. The International Tennis Federation has officially endorsed what the referee did as being fully proper.

    There are women. In the 2009 US Open Serena defaulted the match when she stalked over to the tiny female Chinese line judge and told her; “if I could I would take this f*cking ball and stuff it up your f*cking mouth”.

    I am watching the replay of the men's final, on the Tennis Channel, right now, because I had to leave where I was watching the match, on Sunday afternoon, early in the second set. That second set alone ended up taking 95 minutes-- 16 minutes longer than the entire women's final, the day before! (A single 22-point game in that second set lasted twenty minutes.) Once Djokovic went up two sets to none, I assume that an awful lot of people, especially those pulling for del Potro, tuned out, greatly diminishing the average audience size. On top of that, the women's final had an American superstar as its favorite, while neither of the foreigners in the men's final was Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal, lowering the television audience for that final appreciably, from the get-go. On top of all that, the women's final was up against the second weekend of college football, while the men's final was up against the opening weekend of the NFL. Since both finals were on ESPN, which is otherwise a major outlet for college football on Saturdays, but not at all an outlet for NFL football on Sundays, the men's final had a more potent form of competition for viewers of sports programming, on Sunday, than did the women's final, on Saturday.

    Carlos is being construed as the perpetrator, not the victim.

    Therefore (by the Law of Latino Mutability) he is white.

    If Serena were white, Carlos (by the same law) would be Latino and Serena would be guilty of a hate crime, for all to see. But then, if Serena were white she’d have been playing tennis instead of acting black.

    “Trump Administration Insiders Blocking Executive Action on Tech Censorship”

    Several people within Trump’s inner circle know the threat to the mid-terms and his re-election chances that social media censorship poses, including Donald Trump Jr. and Brad Parscale, his 2020 campaign manager.

    However, older members of the administration are completely unaware of the fact that banning prominent online voices and manipulating algorithms can shift millions of votes and are oblivious to the danger.

    This ignorance has placed a temporary block on Trump taking action, despite the president repeatedly referring to Big Tech censorship in tweets and speeches over the last few weeks. – Infowars

    Jay-Z has the reach, but Serena has the weight, is younger and has the “fire and in the belly”.

Osaka is on to their bullshit, and, for a third time (2nd was when she embarrassed the US Open by saying she wants to defer the presenter’s question because she realizes people are booing her win) shows why she is a champion. I wish Osaka would cop an indentitarian indignant persona, but she has more class than Hoda and the other moron (looks like a middle-aged Teresa May) – this is a perfect example of why I really dislike women; the passive aggressiveness, the phony giggling and treating Osaka like a child.

    https://gizmodo.com/the-end-of-all-thats-good-and-pure-about-the-internet-1826963763

    It’s very similar to the laws in the U.S. that exempt YouTube from penalties as long as its making its best effort to take down infringing material when it’s reported. YouTube uses an automated content recognition system combined with an army of human beings to review the material users’ upload. It costs the company millions of dollars to do this. Critics of Article 13 say that every popular platform—estimated to mean the top 20 percent—that allows users to post text, sounds, code, still or moving images will need one of these systems.

    They’re clearly not able to buy or develop their own system, so they will contract-out to Google or ZuckFace. So in other words, this law just happens to mandate that YouTube or similar out of control globalist megaplatforms embrace all content to act as its copyright filter.

    https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/report-las-vegas-professor-shot-himself-in-arm-to-protest-trump/

    Mark J. Bird was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.

    Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor,” according to Bird’s arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.

    The sociology professor was hired Aug. 26, 1993, and was an emeritus faculty member at the time of the shooting, college spokesman Richard Lake said. Bird was not scheduled to teach any courses during the fall 2018 semester.

    Very interesting paper, thanks for posting!

    It's scary that even in the least biased of fields, we're talking about a huge advantage of Democrats over Republicans. Like, 83% of the Chemistry faculty that votes for either of the two parties votes for Democrats!

    The myth of the “angry black woman”

    ... Robin Boylorn, an intercultural communications professor at the University of Alabama told the BBC it seems impossible to be a black woman and not be angry, after “generations of oppression, discrimination and erasure”.

    “Black women should be celebrated for not being completely consumed by anger,” she says.

    I’m curious whether Serena’s older (and more attractive) sister has ever exhibited the same kinds of emotional outbursts. I’m not a huge tennis fan, but I did see Venus play at the US Open many years ago. She seemed more even tempered. Serena always seems to have a scowl on her face, while Venus generally has welcoming smile.

    The PED’s didn’t seem to have affected Venus as severely as they did Serena, so maybe less ‘roid rage? I don’t know if that is because she did less than her kid sister, or they didn’t have as much effect on Venus.

    "Rage" is definitely her middle name and desegregating black anger is her mission.

    She describes her book "All The Rage: “Mississippi Goddamn” and the World Nina Simone Made" as follows:

    On September 15, 1963, Nina Simone rushed to make a gun after learning that four little girls, none of them older than fourteen, had been killed by a bomb during Sunday school in Birmingham, Alabama. When she failed to build a gun, she produced something far more potent: her most famous protest song, “Mississippi Goddam.” Using her debut of this song at Carnegie Hall as my site of departure, All The Rage: “Mississippi Goddamn” and the World Nina Simone Made tells the unlikely story of how Simone rescued, and redeemed, black rage, a political emotion that African Americans performers had until that moment mainly hid from white America for fear of being demonized, reduced to stereotype, or victimized by violence. Once Nina unleashed her song to the world, her rage gained new currency and urgency its afterlife, giving successive generations of African Americans -- from the Black Power Movement to Black Lives Matter – the permission to express their own anger more boldly and confidently than the group before.

    But, this book simultaneously tells another story: the segregation of anger in American life, why certain groups are politically rewarded for expressing it, others are punished for it, and our steadfast resistance to considering black rage as a legitimate and righteous response to trauma and the ultimate antidote to the racist terror. All The Rage tells a dueling history of America, of the upside, and downside, of anger; the price paid by and potential of black artists who at their height of their popularity out their rage, not as a rejection of America, but in fact is its deepest reclamation; not a turning inward, but a facing outward, giving the nation’s yet another chance to get democracy right.

    I went to the linked source to confirm that, yes, the flawed English (read aloud, with your fingertip below each word) appears in the first course description:

    "... one that is often maligned as a destructive and subject to hyper-surveillance and suppression."

    ".. this course will examine how artists and activist have steadily moved it from the margins of black life into to the mainstream in American culture."

    The several errors can't have escaped notice before poking me in the eye. Which begs the question: Are people afraid to say anything, even privately to the Professor?

    It’s a delicate task to correct the language of someone on the faculty of the Department of English, you know. Even worse, I suppose, when they’re holding the Black Rage course.

    OT Recently reported "school shooting" (which caused a security lockdown) was actually a highly educated professor, enlightened beyond the Dunning Kruger state of you bitter clingers, heroically shooting xirself to protest a democratic election.
    THERE IS NO CEILING TO TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME
    https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/report-las-vegas-professor-shot-himself-in-arm-to-protest-trump/

    Mark J. Bird was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.

    Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor,” according to Bird’s arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.

    The sociology professor was hired Aug. 26, 1993, and was an emeritus faculty member at the time of the shooting, college spokesman Richard Lake said. Bird was not scheduled to teach any courses during the fall 2018 semester.
     
    Let's see:
    >ban guns, but firearm regulation doesn't apply to me
    >tip the help mentality
    >shoot yourself with smaller bullets to build up an immunity to larger bullets
    >I'm not in career trouble because I suck at my job, I'm being persecuted for my guru-like sociological insights

    That’s almost as good as the gay activist lawyer who doused himself in gasoline and lit himself aflame to protest Global Warming.

    Protesting, you’re not doing it right.

  119. I imagine everyone is aware of the “controversial” Australian cartoon of Serena losing it. One of the complaints is that, in the cartoon, her opponent, who the umpire is talking to, is blonde. Of course, Serena’s actual opponent in this match, Osaka, does have (dyed) blonde hair.

    Portraying it factually is, apparently, a hate fact.

    “Between Serena, Michelle O, Beyoncé, and Oprah, who would get angriest if she inferred a white saleswoman thought a $38,000 handbag might be too expensive for her?”

    Mrs. Michael “Michelle” Robinson, hands down. She sports a perpetual scowl — that is one VERY angry black woman, on 24/7 hair trigger for a tantrum. Orpah and Bouncy seem pretty cheerful. I suspect Serena would become sullen, but not explode in rage.

    The mildly tempered version of Professor Tillett’s black “rage” rhetoric seems to be the foundation for what Coleman Hughes, writing in Quillette, describes as the “Black Chic Wave” of leftist Democratic political candidates using “rhetoric straight out of an African American studies course.”

    He writes [some excerpts]:

    With the midterm elections approaching, political pundits have begun the hackneyed ritual of predicting wild success for their preferred party—either a ‘blue wave’ for the Democrats or a ‘red wave‘ for the Republicans. Time will tell which wave reaches our political shores. But in the meantime, a different sort of wave is already upon us: The ‘Black Chic’ Wave, a wave of black candidates who present their skin color as if it were a political credential in itself. This new wave of ‘black chic’ candidates includes Democrats Mahlon Mitchell of Wisconsin, Stacey Abrams of Georgia, Andrew Gillum of Florida, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. To observe that these candidates happen to be black would be to state an uninteresting fact. What’s interesting is that—contrary to what the concept of white privilege would predict—their blackness actually gives them political advantages.

    Today the winning strategy for left-wing candidates is to play up your blackness, your immigrantness, your womanhood, your queerness—anything that puts distance between you and the moral abyss of the straight white male.

    Not long ago, using rhetoric straight out of an African American studies course would have been political suicide for a Democrat in Boston. But last week, using such rhetoric, Pressley pulled off an impressive upset against Rep. Michael Capuano (D)—a white 10-term congressman whose politics were just as progressive as her own.

    Very interesting paper, thanks for posting!

    It’s scary that even in the least biased of fields, we’re talking about a huge advantage of Democrats over Republicans. Like, 83% of the Chemistry faculty that votes for either of the two parties votes for Democrats! Even when including the poeple who are not registered (~23%) and those registered without a party (~16%), 57% of all faculty are Democrats.

    OT That meme about the EU Parliament banning memes is coming true. Old article but the bill in question is sailing through debate now and looks like it will pass.

    https://gizmodo.com/the-end-of-all-thats-good-and-pure-about-the-internet-1826963763

    It’s very similar to the laws in the U.S. that exempt YouTube from penalties as long as its making its best effort to take down infringing material when it’s reported. YouTube uses an automated content recognition system combined with an army of human beings to review the material users’ upload. It costs the company millions of dollars to do this. Critics of Article 13 say that every popular platform—estimated to mean the top 20 percent—that allows users to post text, sounds, code, still or moving images will need one of these systems.
     
    They're clearly not able to buy or develop their own system, so they will contract-out to Google or ZuckFace. So in other words, this law just happens to mandate that YouTube or similar out of control globalist megaplatforms embrace all content to act as its copyright filter.

    Follow-up to this: Article 13 just passed.

Later, as a kindergarten teacher in a tony New York private school, she once threw a young William Windom out of her class because of his unruly behavior. They later became close friends, in Hollywood, without either realizing that they had met before, since she had taught under her maiden name. Over lunch, one day, one of them related the story, and the other suddenly realized that they had known each other, less cordially, decades before their friendship had begun. She almost was killed, while filming the scene in "The Wizard of Oz" (1939) where she disappears from Munchkin Land, in a ball of fire, because of a malfunction of the device that lowered her beneath the soundstage, just before the fire erupts.
