We are so used
to the idea of a woman
hating herself
that the thought
of self love and confidence
is repulsive.
Michelle K., What Do You Really Mean When You Call Her a Bitch? (via housewifeswag)

You know what, I’m just not going to argue with people about a TV series white-washing a character that I have extensive knowledge about today.

Because I love myself and the argument will change nothing.

Is that a black woman? How is her hair relaxed back in the 1600s?

I remember looking at stuff for the show and not seeing a Black Person…also, considering the time, I didn’t think I wanted to. 

Like, I’m not gonna watch this at all because I don’t need more shows full of white people with a token poc, but still why the fuck does she have a relaxer in her hair? 

Was Madame CJ Walker even alive?

She’s has a fairer complexion. Maybe that’s jus her hair type.

1] The fact that she has a fairer complexion [than the real person from real history really had in real life] is kind of the point here. 

 2]  No slave, no matter their complexion, ever had an immaculate 22” Brazilian lacefront with a body wave on their head.  Just sayin’.

Well thank you for your input, much appreciated. However I can’t fully agree just yet.

You can’t agree that this character is based on a real person and should have darker skin, or at the very least not have an obvious weave because slaves didn’t have access to 20th century hair dressing technology?  Okay.

One day during Governor’s school, this kid Blake was having his latest piece critiqued when our instructor informed him that the project was supposed to contain text…so he grabbed a pencil and immediately scrawled on it, “Grindin’, you know what I keep in linin’ ” and I remember being thoroughly amused at his commentary on the rigid structure of some art classes. I mean that, or he just didn’t give a fuck. Either way, brilliant.

I think they’ll say that she’s mulatto or a quadroon. Totally possible for the time period though not as likely at that point in the colonies.

She’s playing Tituba.

That upsets the historian in me because her attire is all wrong for an enslaved woman in the colonies. *grumbles*

What the fuck.  Now, ya’ll know Tituba’s hair was not laid like that.  Not ever.  But I guess I can’t be surprised.

This is one of my favorite films of all time. Tim Curry is divine and I even love Tom in this. It was clearly before the Scientology took hold.

Anonymous asked: Hey the jewish registration thing is not real. It was a disgusting prank but they will not have to register. This was not government sanctioned and they are looking for the people responsible.

THANK U

We should be clear about this, though: while not “real” in the sense of not being attached to an actual government registration initiative, that doesn’t mean it’s not real intimidation. Labeling it a prank makes it sound like the intent is to annoy or amuse, rather than terrorize.

That Summer jam, goddamn.
