Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.
And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.
ALL OF THIS

Welcome to Night Vale Live Show
March 21, 2014
Ok, this one’s for my fellow fangirls! ;D
Seriously though, this was one of the most adorable things I’ve ever seen. And wow, Dylan is HYSTERICAL as Carlos! I was not expecting that! Like, the show sort of had everyone rolling on the floor already, so it’s really something when I say that Carlos was possibly the most laugh-out-loud hilarious part of the show.
Seeing the live show also kinda changed my whole understanding of the characters, Carlos especially. Like, however mad for science you think he is? DOUBLE IT. However hair-rufflingly cute you think he is? TRIPLE IT. And however much you think he is really into his radio boyfriend? MULTIPLY IT BY, IDK, INFINITY! No spoilers, but there’s a moment (a totally normal moment for a committed couple, but still) that nearly made me melt into a little puddle in the theater. Ugh. SO CUTE, you guys. So. Cute.
Sometimes CAH hits too close to home.
