As heard on Tuesday’s premiere of Academic Shade:

The Ten Commandments of a Blackademic 

  1. Don’t steal people’s stuff
  2. If you must shade, do it with wit
  3. Find your own voice; don’t steal someone else’s
  4. Teach with authority
  5. Don’t teach with arrogance
  6. If you are wrong, acknowledge it
  7. If you are a graduate student, think about your social media profile
  8. If you have a tenure spot, think about your spot
  9. Don’t bring your academic fights to social media
  10. Don’t shit on the folks. They are the reason we do what we do

To hear more from Dr. Butler, tune into @AcademicShade every Tuesday at 5 pm EST.
