Water is wet, high end fashion designers don’t want black people in their clothes.
It disgusts me when people use Gods name to justify hate
"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"
Jesus: Ah yes.
Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.
Jesus: What a shame.
erasure of Asian people and characters is very deep rooted in American media and goes all the way back to conception—don’t let it persist!
Important even when you’re excited about this movie!
The biggest problem that the OP didn’t list is that, by replacing the Asian characters with other POCs, it sends the message that all POCs are interchangeable. (Technically this only applies to Wasabi, because the jury’s still out on whether Honey Lemon is Hispanic or not).
i’ve been getting some feedback on that bh6 post, so here are some responses to what i’ve been reading:
Goku is an alien, he’s not Asian.
yes! however aliens can have human races attached to them (the doctor from doctor who is white, even though he’s an alien), so i just assumed goku is asian considering he’s from a japanese anime, and that’s based on a chinese book. apologies for the assumption. however, goku being portrayed by a white actor still reeks of whitewashing.
Ricardo Montalban is Mexican.
i apologize for not making the actor/character difference clear. ricardo montalban is mexican, yes, while khan is asian (specifically sikh). in retrospect it was inappropriate to put him there, since poc are not interchangeable with each other. i wanted to show how the original star trek had a poc playing a poc in the 60’s, while the 2013 hollywood blockbuster had a white actor playing a poc, which is much less progressive.
Marvel’s BH6 comics were racist, too.
yes, they were. i’m not too familiar with it, but they apparently used a bunch of stereotypes and disney specifically choosing to adapt those racist comics is pretty iffy. i didn’t choose to focus on the original comics’ racism, because i wanted the post to focus on the erasure of asians by inserting whiteness.
The Impossible is based on a true story.
and isn’t it suspicious how, out of the countless survivor stories, the one focusing on white tourists is the one that gets made into a movie? just because it’s a true story doesn’t excuse the movie industry’s love for using asian settings as mere props.
IT HAPPENED AGAIN.. this time i wasnt even mad lmao im used to it.. #Wow #SheThinkImStealingPart2
I love this movement
Look at this post racial society we live in today
Twitter Campaign: These are only facts.
Feel free to join in on this campaign to boycott the Exodus movie trailer. I’m so infuriated that it is 2014 and we are still portraying on the silver screen a falsehood of what the ancient Egyptians were! Use the hashtag #BoycottExodusMovie to join. This is honestly some fuck boy mentality honestly!
i will be boycotting this. I hope this takes off
I can’t remember the last time I wanted a movie to bomb so badly. Fuck Exodus.

Countdown ”initially denied” warning staff to track “Maori girls in aisle 1” over the intercom, mother says.
Maori are often racially profiled as hori thieves, doll-bludgers, and addicts among other things. Here’s just one case of many.
Rikki Cooper was in the store with her kids shopping for groceries when over the loud speaker she herd a security announcement saying that there was a Maori girl (in the aisle she was currently browsing) who needed to be watched. She knew the staff member was talking about her and tried to ignore it as the accusations (that could be heard by all the staff and costumers in the shop) kept up.
She was followed around by the staff who went through her belongings, tracked her kids, and even asked her to show them her pregnant tummy so that they could be sure she was actually pregnant rather then hiding stolen goods. To add insult to injury the staff even had the audacity to laugh at her and her young family as she left. She was brought to tears by the embarrassment.
You can read more about her experience in her own words via the link.
Please share this, it’s really important that the nasty entitled, malicious and invasive attitudes harming indigenous people is brought to a stop. And we can’t do it if we’re not being heard.
this is fucking disgusting.
I used to go there. Fuck that store.
I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.
Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)
And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.
Oh, and by the way…
Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.
