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.

We’re a team.

#their relationship progression is so important to me#two people who dislike each other purely based on their background#grudgingly get to know each other and realise they’re not that different and have a lot in common and should actually maybe be friends#but maybe it isn’t just friendship they’re feeling its more its love#and when they realised it and actually got it together enough to be together they were two people who grew up because they got to know each#other who threw away their petty ideals of who they should be with the relationships they think they should be in and realised that they are#good together#they bring out the best in each other without discounting the bad things because to do that would mean they aren’t the people who fell in lo#love with each other#what a good relationship what a good thing this was#such a pity that the writers fucking ruined it#otp: fell in love with a stapler stealer#blair waldorf#Dan Humphrey#gossip girl (via-samueltanders)
