are you fucking kidding me?
Ugh. That’s why I turn off my anonymous. Dumb fucks.
As if it couldn’t get worse, recent animations have hit upon a new way to circumvent this problem: get rid of people of colour altogether! Which brings us to Disney’s latest smash-hit Oscar-winnig animation, Frozen. Frozen was applauded for its nuanced, active female characters (let’s gloss over the Barbie-like approach to body image for now) in contrast to passive princesses past. On a diversity level, though, the film’s vision of wintry unmitigated whiteness extended not only to the landscape but the movie’s characters, too. “Aha!” its defenders could say. “This is a story set in 17th-century northern Europe, why should there be any people of colour?” To which the reply could be: “This is a work of fantasy concocted in ethnically diverse, 21st-century America, in which you have chosen not to cast or represent a single non-caucasian person.”
There’s no road map for being black.
so, the other day at church…
…the male choir was singing and they were rocking this uptempo song. Older guy on the front row accidentally knocks his microphone over in its stand. NO ONE ELSE in the ENTIRE CHURCH, including the dudes singing next to him seems to notice this travesty, and the man spends the next verse trying to pick the stand back up.
I was biting back my laugh so hard.
