Cynthia McKinney got run out of Congress, by people like that. She would be a far better candidate for the Democrats to be putting forward - than a $hillary-type.

    I found _The Cursed Child_ to be _terrible._ It must be succeeding off the good will and reputation of the Harry Potter franchise in general. My family were all _Harry Potter_ fans, from the senior citizens to the middle schoolers; _The Sorcerer's Stone_ was the first book I willingly read myself as a first grader. But nobody in my family, not even my mother, could stomach _The Cursed Child._ Its release around the same time as Pottermore's _History of Magic in North America_ actually caused me to reevaluate my opinions of the franchise and on JK Rowling herself and write my term paper on a criticism of JK Rowling's unconscious, embedded ideology of uncritical anglocentric colonialism, because the more I looked, the more I found. These two additions to the franchise together made me look for answers on why they were so bad and realize how bad other parts of the franchise actually are. They're _that bad._
    JK Rowling had to edit the crests for the "Ilvermory" houses because she plagerized the originals off the first result in google images when searching for that creature, for frick's sake!

    • AlashiaTuol
      AlashiaTuol 14 days ago

      Um, I just realized TVclip seems to have hidden my comment on every device that isn't logged in to my account for some reason, so for the convenience of others who might be confused, here it is:
      (Part 1)
      Online, JK Rowling responded to a question about slavery by denying slavery or any racial tension ever existed amongst wizards, but forgot about what that would mean for the relations between muggle and magical society and in particular muggle borns born as slaves. She got everything basically wrong in Magic in North America, to the point where she got the date of the founding of the US wrong and also in trouble for plagerizing the Ilvermory crests off the first image results in google, which she subsequently had to change. Personally, I think she wrote the magical US in the way she did (so departed from the real cultures of the US from the beginning, except when convenient to her) so that she didn't have to worry about knowing much about the US culturally, but it makes her pointed social criticism of racism run pretty flat, especially since she _erases actual slavery and racism,_ and she clearly did all her research via the first two results in google and even then only when she actually wanted to add more real history, which was rare. Social criticism doesn't work when the parody culture you portray only superficially resembles the real-world one.
      These are just some of the issues that indicate JK Rowling treats the US like it's still a British nation, just a more racist and violent one. But every time she says anything about it culturally, I still think: "X does not work like that in the US." Ilvermory is a great example. Schools do not work like that in the US. We don't have the British four house system; that'd be dumb. But she "Americanizes" it by slapping plagerized images of various Native American peoples' legendary creatures on them. And one school for the entire North American continent? Kids from Puerto Rico and Mexico City are expected to go to the same British-style school with kids from Quebec? In _Massachussetts?_ When Western Europe got at _least_ three schools? How did she not see a fundamental flaw?
      Worse, everyone uses European magic. JK Rowling says _only_ Europeans developed the wand (in relation to Native Americans being comparably skilled in herb magic 😫) and all their magic phrases are English and latin roots. Even the real-world United States has multinational, complex magical and spiritual traditions. We're a melting pot culture: did the South American, Central American Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Eastern European, and Middle Eastern immigrant peoples impart _nothing_ on who we are as a people? Apparently not; just Britain and JK's stereoptype of Native Americans, which she also treats as a single group. πŸ‘
      It's just. It's wrong. Everything about it subtly positions Europe, and England in particular, at the center of the Universe: New England is where they have their English school to teach the entire North American continent European magic. It's so unbelievably colonial in mentality, educating an entire continent from the single bastion of English culture which even then isn't really _that_ British in reality anymore. Heck, she even coopts the Salem Witch trials to excuse this cultural divergence, claiming there really were witches killed, which is really offensive because these people died accused of witchcraft and we know all of their names. They have surviving family! All to set up a nonsensical, worse division between magical and nonmagical people than the one in Britain, which makes no sense for the US _either_ because the US is not some monocultural entity: even today it functions like seperate nations strung together. If Massachussetts Colony passed the stupidest law against interacting with nonmagical people, Georgia would do the exact opposite out of spite! The US developed its culture from being so big it was disjointed; disconnected; local law was, for most of history, the only functing purveyors of law because the others had no real influence at a distance, meaning local areas often picked and chose what laws to enforce. Realistically, in a more culturally accurate Magical US, many people probably wouldn't even obey the Statute of Secrecy depending on where they lived. You think the Hawaiian or Native American peoples care about European paranoia? Do you think they were even asked before the "International" Statute was made? And if not, what was that about no racial tension, JK Rowling?

      AlashiaTuol Thanks for explaining that. Sounds kind of cringey and weird. I'm getting curious about this now, I might actually try to find it and read it for a laugh.

    • AlashiaTuol
      AlashiaTuol 3 months ago +1

      +rogue meteorite Magic in North America is a three part history of JK Rowling's version of magical North America. It basically had wizards and witches from Europe knowing about North America before Europe, but somehow not having much of a presence there until nonmagical people showed up, and then the Salem Witch Trials, which were caused by genuinely magical people accusing and executing other actually magical people, and somehow this convinces all of the colonies into creating laws against interacting with nonmagical people and diverting away from nonmagical society, and from there on in it's just total nonsense and madness where nothing culturally or historically makes sense. Also, she doesn't actually have native Americans show up in the history, just some of their mythical creatures that act like colonialist stereotypes _of_ Native peoples.
      So basically JK Rowling made a magicsona of the US when all she clearly knew or cared to know about that country was a few vague, general historical events, some facts she learned from the first few results when googling, and stereotypes. Where she didn't know what to write, she appears to have filled the space with assumptions based on stereotypes and JK Rowling's own culturally British life experiences.
      And she only did all of this because she wanted to have a British protagonist run around using New York as a backdrop.
      I wish there was an emoji for face palming.

    • rogue meteorite
      rogue meteorite 3 months ago +1

      AlashiaTuol I completely agree with you about everything wrong with the Cursed Child. Bad and cliched fan fiction was exactly what I thought about it.
      I haven't read it and I was curious about the History of Magic in North America you mentioned and what was bad about it? I'm not nearly a big enough Harry Potter fan to read things on Pottermore and I was just kind of curious about that article.

    • AlashiaTuol
      AlashiaTuol 3 months ago +1

      +rogue meteorite Sorry if I confused you. I was responding to a question about why I disliked Ilvermory, and then I added flaws I found in JK Rowling's main seven Harry Potter books. _The Cursed Child_ wasn't talked about much except for the initial comment.
      But as for why I dislike _The Cursed Child,_ it's because its plot elements consist of choices and characteristics usually reserved for bad fanfiction - and I say this because fanfiction is usually created by amateur writers who have yet to achieve full understanding of the elements of writing and thus it is acceptable for their writing to have glaring flaws they might, in their inexperience, have missed - it's essentially honing one's skills.
      But _The Cursed Child_ takes these common tropes and handles them with the same amateurish touch and combination style _as_ bad fanfiction; uses them so indelicately, so outlandishly, that the script is painful to read. It doesn't make sense with prior characterizations. It doesn't focus on the interesting ideas of the future. It doesn't even really give us a glimpse into something new and enjoyable, just some out of character versions of future characters, visits to the past, and ridiculous alternate timelines. (I mean really, _Cedric Diggory? Voldemort Day? Upsetting the Dementors?_ Were they _high?)_ And of course, the elephant in the room, another prophecy that comes out of nowhere introducing a ridiculous villain who comes out of nowhere created by circumstances that also seem to add to the general out of character tendencies and also come out of nowhere.
      Add to that to the fact that all of the new characters (besides Scorpius) are pretty unlikable, that its plot was only unpredictable because I never thought they'd write something so stupid, and my dislike for serious time travel stories in general due to them almost always being handled badly and opening nearly infinite plotholes, and _The Cursed Child_ adds up to a hot mess _and_ the only official, formally published _Harry Potter_ work I have never read all the way through to boot, mainly because I stopped 3/4s of the way through and couldn't force myself to pick it up again.
      It's so bad that when the spoiler summaries started coming out before the script was formally distributed, I thought it was a prank the media was playing on the general public. To my utter shock, it wasn't.

      +When SEUNGRI Speaks Here goes again:
      I read it, and while I understand a dimension of the work is missing when I do so, I don't have the money or time to see it. Further, I don't think it excuses the bad writing either way, though kudos to the actors if they can make that script sound halfway meaningful.
      _The Cursed Child_ and _Magic in North America_ really made me refocus my attention on the Harry Potter franchise in a far more critical way. Though I grew up alongside _Harry Potter_ - _The Sorceror's Stone_ being the first book I willingly read on my own in first frade - as an adult I feel that accepting both the virtues and flaws of a work are important to understanding and learning from it. In JK Rowling's case, her work is boundlessly imaginative but riddled with unconscious anglocentric colonialist attitudes, poor and often lazy research, shockingly petulant grudges, and disturbing and unfortunate logical implications. Further, quite frankly, I suspect the franchise is suffering also because the fictional world she created was never built to be stretched this far, and when this collides with her poor research habits, it results in her world tying its seams in knots. And, in _The Cursed Child's_ case, a further flaw is the adoption of fanfiction conventions, and specifically the clumsy strategies amateur writers stereotypically use to handle those conventions, a decision I still can't understand coming from professional playwrites and authors no matter how hard I try.
      JK Rowling claimed lycanthropy was a metaphore about AIDs, but forgot about the implications of Fenrir Greyback. She denied slavery or any racial tension ever existed amongst wizards, but forgot about what that wouls mean for the relations between muggle and magical society and in particular muggle borns born as slaves. She got everything basically wrong in Magic in North America, to the point where she got the date of the founding of thr US wrong and also in trouble for plagerizing the Ilvermory crests off the first image results in google, which she subsequently had to change. Personally, I think she wrote the magical US in the way she did (so departed from the real cultures of the US from the beginning, except when convenient to her) so that she didn't have to worry about knowing much about the US culturally, but it makes her pointed social criticism of racism run pretty flat, especially since she _erases actual slavery and racism,_ and she clearly did all her research via the first two results in google and even then only when she actually wanted to add more real history, which was rare.
      She based Umbridge off an english teacher she had in high school, right down to her appearance, her clothing, and the exact nicknacks in her desk and office, and then made that woman the only woman besides Voldemort to scar Harry and heavily implied that womam was raped by centaurs, after which all her protagonists laugh at her trauma. She literally wrote an expy of her old teacher, made her a dictatorial psycho and "more hated than Voldemort," then has her raped by centaurs and her main protagonists laugh at her PTSD. That's _sick._ That's the kind of violent fantasy that actual psychopaths have. It's not the only instance of petulant grudge-holding: Snape is similarly based off a teacher she hated, and she deliberately wrote the phrase "pocketed it" into every book after the second because she decided she hated the guy narrating her books for formal recordings even though they never interacted beyond a brief introduction and she found out he had difficulty saying "pocketed it."
      And then there's the awful realization that all of the characters have such little regard for the basic human rights of nonmagical people - even Hermione, with her own parents, and even Mr. Weasley, who speaks about muggles like a british man from a century earlier talking paternistically about the simple, savage Africans - that it really isn't a story of good vs. Magic Nazism, but Magic Nazism vs. Magic Nazi Lite. It's not just the Death Eaters: they're _all_ supremists, and no one challenges the validity of this passive but pervasive assumption of superiority. Heck, even the Weasleys ostracize "squibs," and they're supposed to be our _good_ Wizarding family. At the Quidditch World Cup, they Obliviate the groundskeeper every fifteen minutes, something we know has detrimental effects to the mind, and then when they're attacked by Death Eaters, do you think they did any more than erase his memories again? Hagrid justifies not getting involved with Muggles as "they might ask for things." Yeah, like water and food for suffering areas, which even one wizard can provide because you yourself, Hagrid, have instantly produced water from your umbrella-wand to put out the fire in your house after the climax of thr 6th book and magically enduce and enhance crop production in every book, making pumpkins the size of houses.
      The cast just doesn't regard nonmagical people as possessing rights; the people who are liberal, in Wizarding society, merely see them as 'deserving to exist, but still beneath me, not deserving of my help or a place in society.' Yikes. They don't flinch at human rights violations because in their minds, the convenience of wizards is more important than the rights or safety or health of nonmagical people. They don't even respect them enough to tell them something about what's going on when thousands are getting murdered by Death Eaters in the 6th book. And we're supposed to like them. At first I thought this was an intentional allegory for white priviledge and pervasive social inequalities but given how unintelligently she treats the issue in Magic in North America, I really think she did this by accident. I think she intended to encode "cultural isolation" in her fictional society but accidentally encoded racial supermacy in her book's "good" characters.
      Also, the goblins are Jewish stereotypes.
      Like I said, sausage principle. I could go on for pages about how bad _Magic in North America_ is and why it's the wrongest thing JK's ever written so far and she desperately needs to stick with accidentally making insulting implications about the UK (because at least she knows _part_ of that culture) but this is already too long.

    The hate this play gets from so called Harry potter fans who've never seen the play really have to go watch it before they judge. A play is to be experienced not read. They should never have released it as a book.

      Books are meant to be read. Plays a meant to be experienced. Every work should be critically analysed but dont judge a play without watching it.
      I never said it shouldnt be criticised. I have very different criticisms of the HP franchise compared to yours but thats a completely different argument as I have not heard anything but criticisms by people who are not experts on the internet regarding this play. Critically analysing a work doesnt mean only criticising it. There is a reason why it is getting nominated for tony awards and praise by experts in the industry. A play is different to a book and should be analysed by watching it not *merely* reading it.

      +Crystal Clear81 We judge written works by writing styles and speeches by transcripts, so why not plays? While viewing the actual performances can add another dimension, it does not excuse bad writing. _The Cursed Child,_ combined with _Magic in North America_ on Pottermore, really made me refocus my attention on the Harry Potter franchise in a far more critical way.
      You don't have to be blindly praise-full towards something to appreciate it or be a fan. It's unhealthy to reject all criticism of something because you like it. Accepting both the virtues and flaws of a work are important to understanding and learning from it. In JK Rowling's case, her work is boundlessly imaginative but riddled with unconscious anglocentric colonialist attitudes, poor and often lazy research, shockingly petulant grudges, and disturbing and unfortunate logical implications. Further, quite frankly, I suspect the franchise is suffering also because the fictional world she created was never built to be stretched this far, and when this collides with her poor research habits, it results in her world tying its seams in knots. And, in _The Cursed Child's_ case, a further flaw is the adoption of fanfiction conventions, and specifically the clumsy strategies amateur writers stereotypically use to handle those conventions, a decision I still can't understand coming from professional playwrites and authors no matter how hard I try.

      sampling is a word we made up in the 80's because biting other's peoples shit was wrong. biting is biting, it just comes in different forms. Everything now is a simple recycle. Anyone with a bit of time (and a couple bucks for equipment, don't forget, dude's mom was loaded) can do it.

      I hear you cuz'... but you gotta give it to the bastard... he does sample well. But I get you... maybe I've just been desensitized a little too much. It used to be I blew a gasket everytime someone literally bit off someone's lines or specific flow. Like take that shit to R&B, no offense... love my vocalists from Smokey Robinson to Trey Songs, that shit don't have no place in hip-hop. Then here we are today... when these young dudes literally will bite from singers... SINGERS... and put that shit in their tracks *facepalm* .

    As both a Harry Potter fan and from an outside perspective, I thought the Cursed Child was god awful. The time travel aspect opened up a million plot holes and Delphi being Voldemort's secret daughter was imo jumping the shark. No way is this the "8th story" lol
