Burn down the eating clubs

“It doesn’t matter if a club’s membership brands itself as woke, progressive, liberal, inclusive, chill, or diverse: they largely fail to look past their own moral superiority to see that they actively recreate the same racist, sexist, exclusionary dynamics that they claim to be against.”

Princeton cares more about your midterms than you

“I feel deeply disappointed and disillusioned by the University’s actions and rhetoric. Our collective well-being — by which I mean the mental and physical well-being of each and every one of us — shouldn’t be sacrificed for the sake of propping up an appearance of “normalcy” and sustaining a crushingly toxic culture of productivity.”

For the Reactions series, columnists opine on the recent loosening of the University’s COVID-19 protocol — some lauding the changes and others nervous about the risks of COVID-19 spread with fewer mitigation measures.

Gaslight, gatekeep: Creative writing at Princeton

“The Program in Creative Writing still requires applications for all of its classes, including introductory ones, and most of the literary publications on campus require applications as well. There is also this stark white reality, both figuratively and often demographically: creative writing at Princeton is pretentious and centered on ways of writing that descend from Western ‘high art’ traditions construed as objectively superior to all other forms.”

What the last two Lawnparties show us about the need for USG reform

“It is undeniable that USG representatives are hard-working, and that should be recognized. The controversy regarding the past two Lawnparties raises concern, however. Because much of USG’s work is hidden from the student body, they are largely unaccountable to us.”

Stop sexualizing women-loving women: Drake’s ‘Girls Want Girls’ and artistic responsibility

“When making art, artists have a responsibility to be considerate of their subjects and refrain from using, abusing, and co-opting the stories of communities they have no sincere interest in understanding.”

Black death is not ‘educational’: Footage of violence, the children of MOVE, and calls to action unheeded

“I don’t know what to say to people who easily digest human suffering alongside their morning coffee and go through the circuitous work of justifying it, forget it by the week’s end, remember it only to use as a juicy detail in their next low-stakes policy debate, or even feel satisfied by it.”
