After years of studying the works of famed author Alexandre Dumas - both fiction (The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo) and nonfiction political writings - it's alarming that professors never told us that the French writer was black. And according to this Tumblr thread, we were not alone. The Hatian-born Dumas was a prolific hero of French literature. So why is his race not talked about? This thread deals with these injustices, and sheds light on Dumas' many accomplishments, his interests, and his unapologetic sass. Enjoy.

'What, You Egg?' Memes Roast High School English Teachers

Ah, high school. Back when we'd sit in AP English class and listen to the teacher go on about the supposed symbolism in classic works of literature for what felt like hours. Lo and behold, it's entirely possible that some writers just want to write a damn sentence that doesn't contain some sort of brilliant imagery.

All the way back in 2013, a Tumblr user pointed out the line "What, you egg?" in Shakespeare's MacBeth. Was Shakespeare trying to convey some sort of secret meaning here? It's possible, but it's more likely he just wanted to throw in a silly insult.
