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

Okay can we talk about how freaking awesome the difference between the way Mother Gothel treats Rapunzel, and the way Eugene does? It’s all in the body language. The first thing Mother Gothel does when she sees Rapunzel is check her hair. Eugene is always brushing it from her face. Mother Gothel is always kissing her hair, not Rapunzel. Eugene is always staring into her eyes. Eugene commissioned little girls to braid her hair to make it easier for her, and really liked how she looked free from it’s burden. Mother Gothel took out the braid at soon as she could. And lastly we can’t forget how Mother Gothel practically HUGS the hair, while Eugene’s last act was to cut it so she could live a normal life.
