Beyoncé in Center Field

Beyoncé at the Super Bowl. Arranging her dancers in an X formation, strapping everyone into Black Power gear. Throwing back her throat, pumping her fist, singing with all her ancient power and youth:

Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper.

Every time I think of what she pulled off, I start crying. In every way, she is using her center field to say: wake up, wake up, WAKE UP, America. The least we can do is listen.

"All, everything I understand, I understand only because I love."
― Leo Tolstoy
