Dear White People isn’t set for wide-release until October yet has received an incredibly polarized range of ratings on IMDb. I’m sure they all saw it at festivals and gave it a fair review based on the quality of the film.

Intended as a comedy that ploys on the idea that the minority, there really isn’t one, isn’t displayed theatrically as major roles. I’m a huge international movie fan and this offends me. THOUSANDS and HUNDREDS of smart films out not type-casted by race including American/Hollywood. I would rather talk about the unpractical romance standards films try to depict than watch a movie about a dead subject. I’m sure there are still racists out there but this is America, Land of the Free and the Brave. If you settle to represent yourself as demographic minority than you only you racially isolate yourself. You have the right to choose how to have the public perceive you. My girl friend, future wife, is from the other side of the world we’re two complete different people and we love each other. Perhaps this couldn’t be done 45 years ago, but I still would’ve done it. She’s amazing! People who believe in race are stupid, just as stupid as ghetto gang bangers of decent/lineage.

The World is Not Your Fucking Oyster

thedappledsky:

  • Other people’s cultures do not exist for white people to seek their spiritual enlightenment
  • No one owes you an education, and initiation, or a history lesson simply because ‘you want’
  • No one has to include you in things because ‘you want’
  • No one has to hold their tongue, sweeten their words, or chop up sentences to make white people feel better about history- colonization, slavery, genocide, ect.
  • No one should be ‘grateful’ to you for your interest in said culture

DO NOT FUCKING QUOTE GAIL DINES

Every sex worker on Tumblr. Repeatedly. Constantly. Daily.

AND YET.

It is a *privilege* to not know who Gail Dines is and to read something she wrote that was actually not virulently hateful towards sex workers or trans women and was maybe on point for once and so to reblog it to all of the sex workers and trans women who follow you.

Spread this post around so people KNOW NOT TO DO THAT SHIT.  If Gail Dines has said something correct, I guarantee you a million other women have said it better. So find a better quote and stop it with Dines.
