IT’S. FINALLY. HEEEEERRRRRRREEEEEE!!!!
I practically devoured this trilogy in the past week.
Excerpt from “Masked Racism: Reflections on the Prison Industrial Complex”
Black, Latino, Native American, and many Asian youth are portrayed as the purveyors of violence, traffickers of drugs, and as envious of commodities that they have no right to possess. Young black and Latina women are represented as sexually promiscuous and as indiscriminately propagating babies and poverty. Criminality and deviance are racialized.
The symbolism in Hide kills me.
Remember how the Doctor’s bow tie is red if the episode is in the future?
And it’s blue if it’s in the past?
Then in Hide, he doesn’t have it when he is in the pocket dimension?
Because he is practically lost in time.
The more the people understand the more watchful they become, and the more they come to realize that finally everything depends on them and their salvation lies in their own cohesion, in the true understanding of their interests, and in knowing who their enemies are. The people come to understand that wealth is not the fruit of labor but the result of organized, protected robbery. Rich people are no longer respectable people; they are nothing more than flesh-eating animals, jackals, and vultures which wallow in the people’s blood.
