Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.
And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

"Yesterday I was sad, today I am happy! Yesterday I had a problem, today I still have the same problem! But today I changed the way I look at it!"
I thnk I could be bisexual but I come from a religious background and homosexuality is frowned upon. If I came out I would be disowned. And at the same time I dont really know. blah
Well what’s more important, you or what other people believe? Or how they’ll view you? If someone disowns you, I understand you would be upset. That’s perfectly normal… But then again, why hide something significant for the sake of their pleasure? That’s disrespectful to yourself. It is your body, your mind, your soul. You are free to do whatever you want, of course that comes with consequences. But sometimes it’s worth it dude. I’d just like to think you give a fuck about yourself
How are you?
