"I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen."

Sleeve work from today. I’m learning to draw everything really small, then blowing it up on the photocopier and just using my rough sketch as a stencil. I love creating colourful tattoos using as few colours as possible. This took 6 hours to tattoo from start to finish.
Thankyou for looking

y’all hear about this?!?!?

What the fuck

Remember all the famous white girls that were caught shopliting and not shot and killed? Remember when white tumblr went and did life hacks for shopliftin because it was “sticking it to the man” in their upper middle class world where they read one post about Marxism and liked a picture of a sweatshop in china one time

This mother was killed without a second thought its not about shopliftit its about killing black people, its genocide on our people

white australians have this thing where they seem to think that the dehumanization of aboriginal people was a hundred or so years ago
like no
up until 1967, aboriginal people were legally classed as fauna
they weren’t considered people at all 47 yrs ago
that’s not long ago at all

fun fact you used to be able to hunt them :T
