"I do talk about money a lot. The guys, though they do the same thing: “money over bitches,” “money over hoes.” In my eyes, it’s the same way. If they’re gonna feel that way about us, well, I’m gonna feel the same way about them. I’m gonna make money my priority as well."

Tink, in aninterview with Wondering Sound.

I really want to hear that track with her and Sleigh Bells.

A soldier motions that he does not want his photo taken while on an operation near the Israeli-Gaza border on July 19, 2014 near Sderot, Israel. Photo by Andrew Burton for Getty Images.

I thought a lot about why this photo struck me after reading signedlaura's response [and talking about it with her]. She's right - it's not really news. This could be any cop, any guard, any authority with a gun. Authorities with guns don't like having their photo taken. Photos like this are taken every day in my home country. You could argue it’s the least newsworthy photo of the 42 the Atlantic published.

What struck me was that it evokes the two scenarios where we commonly see people shunning the camera:

the paparazzo harassing someone just going about their business who happens to have the spotlight on them

-or-

the entrance or exit from a courtroom [admittedly, this is usually people covering their own faces, not waving off a camera]

I think this photo is another Empathy Test. Does this soldier not want you to see what he’s doing? Or does he not want you to see how he’s doing?

Hey, little sister or brother. If something has happened to you. If someone has hurt you, or is hurting you. If someone is making you uncomfortable every day, if someone is doing something to your body—I hope you have someone to talk to. Somebody you trust. Maybe somebody who…

Follow ibelieveyouitsnotyourfault if you can handle it. That is going to be life-changing.

  • Saul Williams: I also cannot go without saying that there was something deeply embedded in a lot of the reviews that went deeper than just a dislike of the play.
  • Rolling Stone: What do you mean by that?
  • Saul Williams: The idea of having a play that centers around, How do you stop the cycles of gun violence in our community? It's weird to hear someone feel like the story is generic when it's the front page of every fucking paper to date. And when you look at the reviews and compare them to everything from Do the Right Thing to Menace II Society, it's always the same fucking review. There's actually a generic response when I don't think critics realize they're playing into the hands of something that runs deeper than how this made you feel. I am speaking to that American race psyche; that thing that Harry Belafonte said to me after he saw the play, which is, "You took an afrocentric-themed play and placed it on a eurocentric stage. The problems you'll face are larger than you think."
