friendly reminder that it’s okay to cry
i don’t care what happened, if a fictional character got hurt, or if an actor died, or if one of your friends made a ‘joke’ that hurt you, or you’re just having a shitty day, or even for no reason at all
it is always okay to cry
How the Sun Sees You: People Discover What They Look like under Ultraviolet Light, and the Startling Power of Sunscreen
I’ve seen this done with still photography before, but never with video. Whaaaaaaa…
People of the paler persuasions, please watch and think about this before you decide to covet and idolize tan skin as the cornerstone of beauty. I shudder to think how many thymine dimers are lurking inside our invisible freckles like ticking neoplastic time bombs.
Also, how adorable is everyone in this video?
*clings violently to melanin*
This is for those who are curious and you all out in Ferguson. I’m going to be attaching some info graphics (one may seem needless due to circumstances but I’m adding it anyway.) I have some more info I’d like to put into a better to use format ( alot of them are screen grabs and I’d like to put in clearer and slur free language.) If you want me to send anything I got or any info I have ( I’m a Criminal Justice student) don’t hesitate to ask.
I have seen a few of these but a post with them compiled may help more. I will be editing these as I get it all prepared I’ll use the Ferguson Protest Aid tag for any updates I do. Stay safe everyone.
ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.
I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!
this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.
I CAN’T WAIT
So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway. Ask box is open, slam away.
When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people. By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.
Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it. A BLACK orphan?! Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
Thank you for the addendum, makes it even more relevant.
here’s my new and improved amethyst. tbh i don’t even cosplay her i just am her lmao
why do white people cosplay characters of color
because the creators of poc characters usually don’t care as much as you do about that
because they know white fans cosplaying characters of color means they can make an identifiable character regardless of culture/race, making the already weak “it won’t sell well/won’t appeal well” argument against poc characters absolutely worthless
because they know white fans liking a character doesn’t actually make it unsafe/take away the character from other characters
because this has nothing to do with racism
or maybe. just maybe. because they like the character and don’t need your approval to like them.
thanks white tumblr user gymleaderkarkat
I’m Hispanic, you racist piece of trash.
I have so many roleplays going on but no one to roleplay with
