I love that woman. I love her more than sharks love blood.
fondulady asked: When people say, "color doesn't matter" it translates to me as "your oppression doesn't matter. I'm not going to recognize that your identity, cultural practices, and social experiences are something that you're affected by everyday." Pretending that everyone is equal is the perfect way to keep power systems in place. Race doesn't magically go away when people ignore it.

Here you go…the not so slow crawl to push out Kerry and hype up Bellamy. Damn suck of this by now.
Really EW? Really?
Who are we to judge when Kerry is happy for everyone to “share the love, light, and the media attention”…..I bet she’s overjoyed for Bellamy Young! *Sarcasm!!!*
^^^THIS!!! “There’s space for everyone to shine” indeed.
yeah BYEEE … Julianna Margulies would have threatened to quit the good wife if something even remotely similar happened .. the woman made the writers change their direction by only giving her point of view .. the lead has the right to do that but KW is too diplomatic and doesn’t want to fight her own battle so I won’t do it for her .. there’s still Tony who is always pushing for her but others including her have stopped carring
Thanks for this info!!! Ugh, Kerry needs to stop this being nice shit and stand up for herself behind the scenes. You cannot talk about how EVERY black actress in a certain age range wanted this role, but then be fine with the creator, writers, and media making your historical lead character a secondary or tertiary one. STOP WITH THE BULLSHIT, KERRY! We can’t ride for you if you aren’t riding for yourself!
I know!!!! She can still be “Grace Personified” and still give Shonda and dem a taste of The Bronx!!!!
Fuck EW for this!!!!!
Maybe she is dealing with it behind the scene if she has a problem with it, we don’t know. But in the end, Shonda is the one who makes the decision how this show is written. Shonda doesn’t appear to be someone who takes kindly to anyone telling her how to do her job as a writer.
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 anymore in today’s society.
Every day, just a little more…
smh white people are insane
"Racism is dead and black people should just get over it."
I hate Amerikkka sometimes.
Anonymous asked: 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), they had highly developed drainage systems 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 also lined all 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.
always reblog this brutal smackdown.
people blame women for attracting abusive partners or staying in relationships with them, well hell, when you tell little girls “that boy is mean to you because he likes you!” what the fuck are you expecting?
Yep, always hated that bullshit. And the “boys will be boys” fuckshit.
Boom. They said it
