I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

It all started with an ad for Pokémon sunglasses, which depicted Pikachu wearing hipster glasses (top image). Soon after, the Japanese internet was flooded with photos of hipster Pokémon plushies.

My dad just said: at your age you’ll probably wanna try a lot of things. Boys, girls, being a girl, being a boy, being punk or goth or spunky. And im okay with that. As long as you don’t come home and tell me youre a republican

parents who care

before you send someone an ugly message perhaps exfoliate your skin, set some life goals and contemplate why you’ve reached this point

Anonymous asked:
A customer asked for an "illegal immigrant mocha" instead of a "mexican mocha" like it's written on our menu. Do racists not realize Mexico is a country of its own and not every ethnicity is defined by its relation to the US?

yoisthisracist:

I also like how racists are so comfortable with themselves that they’re willing to throw in this odious shit to a stranger making then coffee. WHO THE FUCK THINKS WE NEED THIS RACIST-ASS JOKE JESUS CHRIST
