Last week, I saw something on my Instagram that I thought was super hilarious. This Instagram page is called xratedeats and posts small funny clips of delicious meals with hip hop music in the background that in a way sexualizes food, but not in an inappropriate way at all; just makes it look extra delicious […]

Reading Response #1 For this week’s reading response, I chose to talk about A.O. Scotts “The Screening of America,” mainly because it I found it extremely relatable.
