When it comes to white men, intersectionality oftentimes seems forgotten.
The most popular modern documentaries oftentimes feel like a bastardization of reality TV.
Netflix's wildly successful Tiger King, for instance, crafts a spiraling narrative around the subculture of American big cat collectors, turning two of the community's most prominent players—Joe Exotic and "That B*tch" Carole Baskin—into larger than life characters. It's incredibly entertaining, but the obvious directorial influence on the subjects makes it hard to categorize as entirely truthful or non-sensationalist. Then again, Tiger King's goal isn't to inform. It's to entertain.

Protest music aside, there is a slew of good underground music out today
An invigorating slew of protest music hit the shelves today.
Detroit-based emcee Tee Grizzley collaborated with Queen Naija and the Detroit Youth Choir to craft a melodic ballad that attempts to open up a dialogue with police. Meanwhile, alt-Jazz pioneer Terrace Martin took a different approach in his collaboration with Denzel Curry, Daylyt, G Perico, and Kamasi Washington, with "Pigs Feet" being more of an angry f*ck you than an attempt at communication.
Every day, reality seems more and more like the outcome of a very bad Mad Libs.
Alas, "unknown activists" recently dumped a massive stash of almost 25,000 hacked email addresses and passwords on 4chan, all belonging to various organizations that have been aiming to combat the coronavirus. These include the WHO, the Gates Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health, amongst others. The Wuhan Institute of Virology, where the pandemic allegedly originated, was also targeted.
