Batman, Complex, and Joker: WHEN YOU HAVE TO BE THE ONE TO TELL YOUR FRIEND HER GUY IS NO GOOD FOR HER. OHISTORYOFTHEBATMAN Evening Gothamites! In our session "The ABC's of The Joker" we discussed Paul Dini's origin story for Joker's sidekick Harley Quinn, "Mad Love". This tale was created for the end of 'The New Batman Adventures' television series, airing January 11th, 1999. As Joker becomes flustered with trying to figure out the perfect way to kill the Batman, Harley's flirtations and simple suggestions anger him to the point he kicks her out of his hideout. Harley then thinks back on how she came to this point; before she was Joker's sidekick, she was the new psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, whose first patient was the Joker. After telling stories of childhood abuse, trips to the circus and other tales 'opening up' to his therapist, Harleen eventually came to the conclusion that Joker wasn't the madman everyone has dubbed him to be, but a tortured and misunderstood individual who was always put down by Batman. She wanted to help, but instead with a mask, costume, prank toys all tied up in a red and black bow called Harley Quinn, busting Joker out of Arkham. Returning to the present, Harley decides to capture the Batman herself and get rid of him for good so she and Joker can live happily ever after. But after talking to Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy), Harley (voiced by Arleen Sorkin) discovers those 'memories' Joker told her were just lies to fool her into trusting him, only caring about himself, never her. The end brings perhaps Batman's greatest escape art to the forefront, a hand to hand combat with Joker on a train and a heart broken Harley. Escorted back to Arkham, Harley tells herself 'never again. No more obsession, no more craziness, no more Joker. I finally see that slime for what he is: a murderous, manipulative, irredeemable...' and as she sees a get well soon card from 'J', she calls him angel. 'Mad Love' expands upon not only Harley's origin but also her relationship with Joker; however complex, abusive or manipulative, in the end its quite genuine how much of a mad love these two characters have for one another. Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! ✌🏼❤️🖤♦️🃏📺

Asian, Memes, and Thailand: Why "Get out, a Movie About Anti-Black Racism, Had an Asian Character @nycArevolution Thoughts? l "Get Out” tackles the terrifying experiences of being Black in racist white America, and the inclusion of the Asian man reveals that, while Asians may not play a lead role in white supremacy, our willingness to participate in anti-blackness makes us a supporting character. The inclusion of the Asian character was a powerful message, but why did @jordanpeele add one? Why not five? ... the decision to cast one Asian guy mimicked the actual demographics of Asians in America. According to the Pew Research Center, Asian-Americans make up 5.8% of the country. Compared to Black Americans who stand at 13.3%, Asians are even more of a demographic minority. By adding one solitary Asian character, Peele highlights the fact that even though Asians are outnumbered by Black folks, we still take on the role as oppressors by standing on the side of white supremacy and anti-Blackness. The cocktail party scene was a brilliant way to demonstrate the racial microaggressions and dehumanization that Black folks experience... when the Asian man asked Chris, “Is the African-American experience an advantage or disadvantage?” he wasn’t just making small talk, he was wrestling with the decision of whether or not it would be better to trade bodies with Chris and experience anti-Blackness or stay the same and live life as an Asian man in America and experience xenophobia. The infamous bingo scene in “ GetOut” is a modern interpretation of slave auctions... historically, Asian-Americans also owned Black slaves. Though not as common as white slave masters, some Asian-Americans purchased Black slaves. Born in Thailand and forced to join the circus, conjoined twins Chang and Eng Bunker (known as the “Original Siamese twins”) eventually made enough money to gain naturalization and purchase a plantation with Black slaves. The wealth and socialite status of Chang and Eng propelled them to a position where they could purchase Black slaves and even marry white women. Asian participation in slavery goes back even further than the Bunker twins with some sources citing that Kublai Khan and leaders of the Yuan Dynasty also purchased Black slaves... 17thsoulja
