I have scrolled down this about 5 times and it has almost made me cry every time omg
When they panned to Benedict crying, my heart cried
Ok, so I’ve seen this on my dash several times in the past few months, and I’m tired of it: can we maybe NOT take the public struggles and triumphs of a black woman and make it all about a British white guy’s feelings? Like, I’m sorry, her speech wasn’t enough to make your heart cry until you saw Benedict Cumberbatch shedding tears over it? But seriously, if anything should have twisted the knife that Lupita’s speech had jammed into your heart, it was Chiwetel Ejiofor’s expression in the foreground. Compared to the the pain, the pride, the joy on that man’s face…if the white guy crying in the background was what got you, then you weren’t paying attention to what the woman said in the first place.
Boom goes the dynamite
My favourite translator said that when she was an ambassador for Hungary she took all these Japanese politicians on a tour and she was trying to circumtranslate ‘merry go round’ cause she didn’t know the Japanese word for it by calling it a ‘horse tornado for children’ and they had no blessed idea what she was saying and she finally started running in circles going up and down and they go ‘ohhhhh, in Japan we call those ‘merry-go-rounds’”
This level of conflict of interest is massively unsurprising.
This is horrifying. The worst of Chicago politics migrated south to St. Louis.
Extremely. While we think of Chicago and New York as the most corrupt, we tend to forget our own local politics. This problem is wide spread in every city/county/state.
There is no way to escape it until we all become aware of this problem. And then when we are aware, we have to organize and attack the problem by its roots.
i’d like to see more - maybe Woolf, Dante, Williams or Marlowe??
I haven’t posted a selfie in a while but I still am very cute just to keep you updated
And there it is. A nearly all-white crowd chanting to a nearly all-black crowd, “Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!” Contemporary racism encapsulated by an attempt to package it as support for the police, exposed by calls to shoot black men.
There are no words.
reasons black people just can’t get over it.
