Comments on the trailer of the new Annie movie staring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx.
Would you just look at how racism isn’t a thing in today’s society.
White people being progressive as usual. No racism to see here.
I want heads ….. I want their fucking heads …. fuck these monsters
"It would keep the character more innocent"
HOOHOHOHOHOAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH I AM BREATHING FIRE HOW FUCKING DARE THESE SWINES EVEN THINK OF COMING FOR LITTLE BLACK GIRLS
Lol at the racist dumb ass going “Annie is a white name” when that was my mother’s nickname for me for years…..
Bringing this back because this is white supremacy at its finest.
White people openly saying that Black people cannot be innocent. Black people cannot be relatable. Black people cannot be those things because Black = tainted and white = pure and universal.
They demand we “make our own” but then say all of the above when we fucking do.
Can we just take a moment to look at the dude who considers himself a genuis for using the term “catwomaned” to describe his hatred towards a film having a black person cast in a starring role
because it’s not like that’s the worst thing going on but it kind of implies that what he thought was specifically bad about catwoman is that it starred a black woman.
Actually, maybe I’ll start using “catwomaned” to describe assholes who decide films are bad specifically because that have black people in starring roles.
…I found that the boy characters could say what I wanted to say so easily. They were standing in for me. It went very smoothly. It was so easy to make Poe. But once I had done that, I found that when I created a female character, I would put myself into her, and I was told that I was imposing my own notions of what a woman is on the character. I thought, “Ouch!” I was surprised at myself. [Laughter.] It made me realize that I am still bound by stereotypes.
Moto Hagio, from her interview with Matt Thorn
Hagio-sensei has expressed succinctly something I have felt for a long time—if you, as a female writer, create a male character who is cool and iconoclastic, then it is cool writing, and a cool character. But if that character is a female, you are self-aggrandizing, self-inserting, self-this, self-that, essentially, in that state of cardinal sin society finds most repellent in a female artist—a narcissist.
I think this sentiment is the reason many female writers make the iconoclastic, sarcastic, cool, etc, character male, even if they want it to be female—they might be accused of self-inserting and self-aggrandizing, or creating a Mary Sue—note, again, a feminine name in a society that defaults to masculine modifiers unless specified otherwise.
paranorman’s good but the message is eerily similar to what a lot of anti-sj people spout ie ‘if you lash out at your oppressors you’re just as bad’
i dont think it’s fair to call a girl who got fucking murdered by a bunch of old dudes a bully for being mad about it
TBH I think there’s a second message in it that’s a little less obvious, which is “don’t shut people out of your life, because sometimes you need other people and that’s okay”.
You see with with Norman in a lot of the film when he tries to push away Neil’s attempts to make friends, and later tells Neil and Mitch and Alvin and Courtney to leave him alone. When it comes to stopping the mob, he’s unable to do it on his own because everyone knows him as “the weird kid who talks to ghosts” so they all mistrust him. It’s only when Courtney stands up for him that people are willing to listen. Norman couldn’t do it on his own. He NEEDED that help, and it saved his life.
There’s also some implications when Norman tells Aggie her own story back to her that she pushed people out of her life as well in favor of talking to ghosts, and this only led people to distrust her more, and for her to feel more outcast and alone, but given that it’s Norman telling the story, it’s likely he’s pulling specifically from his own experience.When he thanks Neil at the end of the film, it’s not just thanking Neil for being his friend. He’s thanking Neil for his support, because he realizes how much he needed it.
(Plus it’s not just that Aggie wanted to hurt the people who had condemned her to death, she wanted EVERYONE to suffer, because all the pain and hatred she felt made her want to lash out at anything and everything. The judge and jury were just the first in line on her list.)
Q:Can you explain why Europeans were much more technologically advanced than the indigenous populations of Africa? I mean, these cultures hadn't even invented sewage systems, which is something the Romans were able to design and implement in 800-735 BC (a long fucking time before "the white man" colonized it)... I mean fuck, without "the white man", they would probably still be in the fucking bronze age.
I don’t really know what kind of history books bigots like you read.
The Great Libraries of Timbuktu? The steel metallurgy of the Haya? Dentistry? Caesarean section? Premature neonatal care? Mathematics, architecture, engineering?
I know it’s hard for a racist like you who imagines “technological advancement” to be some kind of end-all-be-all, or proof of some “inherent intelligence”. I know, I know. It’s hard to imagine, but Europeans have been drawing knowledge from everyone around them since the dawn of time. What did you think ended the Dark Ages?
Your magical (read: white supremacist) idea of a purely 'white' Rome never existed.
The Minoan culture on the island of Crete between 1500-1700 B.C.E. had a highly developed waste management system. They had very advanced plumbing and designed places to dispose of organic wastes. Knossos, the capital city, had a central courtyard with baths that were filled and emptied using terra-cotta pipes. This piping system is similar to techniques used today. They had large sewers built of stone.”
In case you needed further clarification, neither the Minoans nor other (later) Greeks were ethnically uniform. They also had the first flush toilets, dating back to 18th century B.C.E. They had flushing toilets, with wooden seats and an overhead reservoir. The Minoan royals were the last group to use flushing toilets until the re-development of that technology in 1596.
Oh, and look the Mayans had indoor plumbing, acqueducts, and pressurized water too. I mean, you can ignore that the area Mayans lived in had little to few rivers, no lakes or standing water, nor other sources of running water, while simultaneously dealing with monsoons and flooding due to one of the heaviest yearly rainfalls in the Americas.
Classic Maya even used household water filters using locally abundant limestone carved into a porous cylinder, made so as to work in a manner strikingly similar to modern ceramic water filters.
Of course, by this time millenia later none of your precious “white people” had developed any methods besides shitting in pots.Continuing, the earliest archaeological record of an advanced system of drainage comes from the Indus Valley Civilization from around 3100 B.C.E in what is now Pakistan and North India. By 2500 B.C.E (almost 5,000 years ago), highly developed drainage system where wastewater from each house flowed into the main drain.All houses in the major cities of Harappa and Mohenjo−daro had access to water and drainage facilities. Waste water was directed to covered drains which lined the major streets directed to covered drains, which lined the major streets. Each home had its own private drinking well and its own private bathroom. The mains that carried wastewater to a cesspit were tall enough for people to walk through. Reservoirs, a central drainage system, fresh water pumped into the homes. Pools. Baths.It was made from bricks smoothened and joined together seamlessly. The expert masonry kept the sewer watertight. Drops at regular intervals acted like an automatic cleaning device.
Filters for solid waste.Sorry, what were the British doing up until like, 200 years ago? Shitting in the streets? Oh yeah.I mean, I could get into how by the Shang Dynasty (roughly 1600 B.C.E.), China had sophisticated plumbing including pressure inverted siphons.
Or into the city of Amarna, Ancient Egypt. Or Persepolis, Persia and the Achaemenids in 600 B.C.E.But, I mean, it sounds like the only one still in the Bronze Age is you.
I love it when people bring facts to white supremacist logic.

Yo take some time out to read the Yellow Wallpaper
If you’ve never read The Yellow Wallpaper or had to for school you should do that.
The author suffered from psychosis but as a woman in the late 1800’s the “professional” attitude was that she was just a dumb silly woman and needed to rest in bed until she just got over it. She was outright forbidden from writing because it would be “too stimulating” to all those dumb hysterical womanly problems and she had to do it in secret just to cling to what sanity she could.
In response to this bullshit she finally wrote this brilliant short psychological horror story that will give you the fucking creeps in all sorts of ways, from the atmosphere and events to the story to the horrifying culture it reflects.
She sent a copy directly to her shitty-ass doctor who never responded and went on being a shithead until he died, but to many other people the story was a wake-up call and still considered a groundbreaking feminist work.
It was inspirational to horror writer’s like Lovecraft though I think the “feminist” part might have gone over his head. Also it is better than his stuff anyway.

Something mindblowing about John Carpenter’s The Thing.
It’s about the ending, so if you’ve not seen it, read no further (and go see it, for shit’s sake):
According to an apocryphal story first reported on Reddit.com in Feburary 2013, when asked about the ambiguous ending of the film, John Carpenter responded that he never understood how could there be any confusion about whether Childs or Macready are human or not because the last scene shows “Kurt Russell and Keith David staring each other down, harshly backlit. It’s completely, glaringly obvious that Kurt Russell is breathing and Keith David is not.”
I just double-checked, and HE’S RIGHT. Watch it here.
