Older white women say I'm very articulate
This is a reference to an event that occurred in 2007, after a screening of the film Killer of Sheep and a Q & A by director Charles Burnett. Victor Vazquez and young director Ray Tintori attended the screening and then afterwards were accosted by a woman in her 60s who wanted to talk about the film and subsequently chastised Vazquez, accusing him of not being very articulate because of a minor grammatical slip-up he made in conversation. “You should really work on that. Its a serious problem. You don’t think it is. But it is.” she said in a pitying tone. Tintori tried to explain to her that “He is probably one of the most articulate people alive.” But she was exclusively interested in explaining why her ideas about Killer of Sheep were so interesting, more interesting probably than the movie itself. Because ultimately, people who have opinions about art really are the center of the world. Especially if they can suck up all the air in the room and make sure that they don’t listen to or pay attention to anyone else. Interestingly enough, Vazquez inverts her statement to one of praise. Possibly a meta-reference to revisionist historical narratives?
