The frequent Stranger contributor has established herself as a prominent, lucid, and galvanic voice on the urgent subject of social justice. And she’s equally deft at writing self-effacing tweets and lacerating pop culture takedowns. This rare combination of rare skills can’t help but bode well for these investigations, which Oluo curated and will host, of thorny subjects ranging from the specific nature of internet “trickery,” the cost of increased visibility for fetishists, and what useful role (if any) satire and irony have left to play in a culture where the costs of encoded racism have never been easier to identify.
