When white teachers call colonizers “explorers” to make them seem like brave people with an adventurous curiosity instead of genocidal, european supremacist bastards who wanted to exchange blood for money.
there are way too many social justice warriors. we need a social justice scout and a social justice healer and a social justice black mage. seriously this videogame has like 10 different classes you can play and everyone goes for the one that just uses generic melee weapons?
reminder to folks not to dress up as a ‘mental patient’ this halloween, mentally ill people are not costumes and the dehumanisation and abuse of us in hospitals is not something to be used for your amusement
reblogging this again because I watched the interview, and the journalist is quoting an article she read where a black filmmaker wouldn’t see the film because quote un quote the subtitles on her frame. A lot of the notes on this are about how stupid the lady is, but she’s quoting someone else and asking McQueen what he thinks about that other black filmmaker’s statement. Whoever made this photoset purposefully cut that part of the conversation out, which makes the lady into a joke and the ruins the depth of the real conversation.
PEOPLE CALLLING KIRST WARK STUPID? Right, who do I need to kill in retaliation for misrepresenting the queen of the BBC?
Did anybody notice the sign that reads “Beware pickpockets”?
It is like pure gold <3
Fun fact: pickpockets used to put up signs like that in tourist areas, so that tourists would pat places on themselves where their valuables were kept, to check that they were still there. Then the pickpockets would know exactly where to retrieve them from.
I love learning
The Thénardiers remind me of my mother’s parents in this movie.
- DO NOT SPEAK TO ME IN A CONDESCENDING WAY
- DO NOT SPEAK TO ME LIKE I’M AN IDIOT
- DO NOT SPEAK TO ME AS IF I’M STUPID BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT SOMETHING THAT YOU KNEW ABOUT OR BECAUSE I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING THAT’S SIMPLE FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND
- JUST DON’T DO IT
imagine: a court system where you do not know the gender, race, sexual orientation, wealth, name, ect. of the person being charged
think of how different the punishments would be
Favorite internet trend.
