science fiction with aliens provides a really interesting platform for discussing racism, because you can simultaneously show a world that’s overcome some areas of racism while still struggling with others, whether that be characters that see aliens as equal people but have trouble with human skin color or human’s getting over skin color and having trouble with aliens or mutants or what have you.

Happy 97th Birthday, Jack Kirby.

Your party favor is 170 of his double page spreads

How are YOU celebrating King Kirby today?

Every writer, of every political flavor, has some neat historical analogy, or mini-lesson, with which to preface an argument for why we ought to bomb these guys or side with those guys against the guys we were bombing before. But the best argument for reading history is not that it will show us the right thing to do in one case or the other, but rather that it will show us why even doing the right thing rarely works out.
Adam Gopnik on the value of studying history. (via newyorker)
