Listening as Activism: The "Sonic Meditations" of Pauline Oliveros
In the late nineteen-sixties, the composer Pauline Oliveros moved from San Francisco, where she had been a pioneer of electronic music, to San Diego, to start a university job. There, in her mid-thirties, she confronted a culture of political despair. "I was watching my television set when Robert Kennedy was assassinated," she recounted in a 1977 interview.

Stephen A: MJ three-peated before he formed super team - ESPN Video
Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman get heated over Michael Jordan's contribution to the popularization of super teams after the star slammed franchises with stacked rosters.
What's sad is that in these times; having experience or time spent in a particular craft means nothing to the masses. There was a time people who spent hours organizing voter registration drives, speaking with youth, demonstrating and assembling for a cause, going to school board meetings, and doing everything to engage the system for those who are being oppressed; voice counted for something. Like going to a podiatric doctor to heal your foot was a thing, now its just go to social media for clips. And those who actually spent time researching and organizing based on research are labeled the "doing too much" crowd. I'm quite certain if Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Bayard Rustin, Fannie Lou, Shirley Chisolm were organizing today in their youth, they would be the "doing too much" crowd... and maybe they were then and that story wasn't being told.
In any community that raises the idea of being oppressed or marginalized, they set the standard of what is permitted or not permitted. Many times companies would spend hours and hours of research and focus groups to ensure that every angle, every possibility, and thought process is covered. You won't find any companies hinting at the idea that Hitler was right. You won't find any marketing companies hinting toward offending anyone with a sexual preference.. however when it comes to BLACK.. it's "oh I'm sorry thats not what we meant" Its up to us to decide what is insensitive, or what offends based on our plight here in America. A person who has been abused and battered know what triggers their fear and they have the right to say "stop that shit it offends me regardless of what you intended"

Virgil Abloh, the Mixmaster of Fashion
For me, it's like my teenage years are the foundation for everything I've done. I was just, like, an average sort of suburban kid, born in 1980, into watching Michael Jordan or listening to Guns N' Roses or NWA, skateboarding and that whole aesthetic. That was my fashion upbringing.
