My excitement for Gilmore Girls to come to Netflix


Q
but isn't Zoe Saldana black...?
A

prettyblackpastel:

Huh? You mean about her being miscast as Nina Simone?

Yeah she is Afro Latina, however her being cast instead of a dark skinned Black actress is not only a contribution to the whitewashing or rather, the brown-paper bagging of Black American history, but also a slap in the face to Nina Simone whose activism, career and music centered around her dark skin, prominent African features, coarse kinky hair and ultimately her experiences as a dark skinned Black woman in America during the Civil Rights era.

It is very important to properly portray our (Black American) history and to cast a light-skinned Black Actress and then to put her in black face and a bunch of misshapen nappy wigs and call it a day is some fuckshit.

In response to anyone who thinks they have an fierce inner black woman in them and is not in fact, a black woman

See the thing about that fire and that “fierceness” is that it’s born out of our oppression, out of always being told that we are ugly, that our bodies are too fat or too muscular, that we don’t have the right kind of hair — and having to deconstruct all those things and tell ourselves that we are beautiful even though society is telling us that we are not.  

That strength is born out of always having to defend ourselves against white supremacy and anti-black-woman-patriachy. From years of not seeing ourselves represented in anything aligned with beauty, of buying products that are made to make us look like not ourselves.

So there is no way you could have an inner black woman in you. You have not experienced our struggle, you don’t know it, you haven’t lived it, and you can’t imagine it. 

See, you can’t sit with us, because we haven’t been able to sit at your table since our existence in this country. And while we were being excluded from your table we made our own, and it is fabulous and fly. And of course you now want to try and have a seat at our table, take our table, use it and ignore all the labor that went into creating THAT table.

But nah, sorry boo boo.

You ain’t never going to be us, you can try to wear your hair like us, you can try to dance like us, talk like us, wish you were us, but know this —

YOU-WILL-NEVER-BE-US

& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism

Bloop.

What the FUCK

White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.

crazyy

listen.

Stay woke

The thing is:White people riot and destroy property when they lose games, or, strangely, when they win games, at sporting events.They riot and destroy property when child rapists and people who are complicit in covering up child rape are penalized and punished.But if black people riot and destroy property in response to systemic injustice and State-sanctioned violence against black people, then the country, the media, and American citizens regard us as unthinking savages.Surely, the unmitigated fuckery present in this paradigm is self-evident….

At the University of Tennessee, white people burned mattresses in the streets when Lane Kiffin left! :P

The UConn campus erupts into full-out riot, complete with car flipping and property destruction, whenever they win a national championship, yet people barely blink an eye.

San Francisco lit a bus on fire when the Giants won the World Series
For the second time in two years
*sigh*

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Stephen Colbert on Late Night with Seth Meyers

TCR | 2007.03.12 | It reads: “Dear Stephen, As editor-in-chief of Marvel, I am burdened with the handling of our character’s estates and the sad event that a hero should perish before his time. Captain America’s will was read last Friday, and while heavy hearted, I am proud to announce the star spangled Avenger has bequeathed his most valuable possession, his indestructible shield, to the only man he believed had the red, white, and blue balls to carry the mantle. Stephen Colbert. Welcome to the Marvel Universe. Sincerely, Joe Quesada.

How can you but just love this?
