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.

"The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking, ‘Is there a meaning to music?’ My answer would be, ‘Yes.’ And ‘Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?’ My answer to that would be, ‘No.’"

"We connected through the movies and we were experiencing something fundamental together, we were living through the emotional truths on the screen together. Sometimes they’re expressed in small things: gestures, glances, reactions between the characters, light and shadow. Things we wouldn’t discuss, or couldn’t discuss, or even acknowledge in our own lives, and that’s part of the wonder. So when I hear people dismiss movies as fantasy or make a hard distinction between film and life, I think that’s just a way of avoiding the power of cinema. Of course it’s not life, it’s the invocation of life. It’s an ongoing dialogue with life."
