We find it fascinating that in the wake of this travesty of an election, the media has decided that their job is to normalize the alt-right and the white supremacists that are now being given platform's in this freshly updated version of neoliberal governmentality.
We would love for someone to explain how something like this can be normalized. How are white supremacists being given "glittery" profiles describing them as "dapper" in major media outlets? We'll tell you why, because the media has an important stake in this social project that we call white supremacy. The media has always been invested in white supremacy and it will continue to uphold that investment in white supremacy; the media is largely responsible for propelling the orange cheeto to the White House in the first place. As Harold Cruse argues in Crisis of the Negro Intellectual, black folks (and other folks of color) will have to create their own black cultural democracies because even "liberal" publications like Mother Jones work to uphold this mess.
