Enough with the “nuanced” analyses! Nobody can figure out where justice is in all the evasions.

It’s been a while now since I’ve seen anyone calling for a “nuanced” analysis of a situation. Is social media reducing the level of intellectual pretensions or have they just been driven to Facebook hell through blocking? Some of us don’t do nuance very well. It smacks of evasion & equivocation, of attempts to complicate things so no one knows what the hell is going on. It’s a refusal to choose sides when the struggle for justice requires that. It doesn’t require demonizing but there’s no hope for social transformation if you won’t call a spade a spade.

Human beings who are being wronged, persecuted, vilified, oppressed need us to stand with them without any “nuance” getting in the way of things. Leave “complexities” to simple-minded apologists for the status quo.
