so are we gonna discuss how fucked up it is that women have to wear makeup to be taken seriously at work and job interviews but if a woman has a genuine interest in and enjoyment of cosmetics she is written off as shallow, vain, and stupid, and consequently not taken seriously
Kanye West is wearing leather jackets with spikes in them, and wearing jeans with metal bands names on them…
can’t wait for every ghetto swag hoodrat to start dressing like metal heads.
Really can’t wait….All the kids who thought people like me were weird for wearing leather jackets or all black with metal band names mocked us.
I’ve been rocking the leather pants and metal band logo for as long as I can remember. Does this mean I’m a hipster and had “swag” before Kanye?
Its not the matter that he’s black. The issue is that he is a mainstream pop/hip-hop person so because of what he wears is “swag” to the mainstream sensation they’re all gonna wear these things which at one point which I was insulted for wearing all the time. So my problem is that I’m gonna see people who mocked me for wearing this attire are now wearing it cause its “hip”.It’s not a problem that he’s Black but you sure are mad that all the—and I quote— “ghetto swag hoodrats” might start wearing leather jackets. Oh, boo hoo, you fucking asshole. How dare you sit there and say ignorant ass shit like that and then say it’s not about race. You made it about race the second those words came off your damn fingertips. People are wearing leather jackets, boo hoo. You know who else wears them? Pretty much everybody following the summer 2013 fashion trends. You know who has ownership over spiked leather jackets? NOBODY. Get over yourself. Do some reevaluating of your damn spirit too. “Ghetto hoodrats”
You’re really trying to make it sound like cultural appropriation, like you were oppressed for wearing a leather jacket and now everybody else can wear them without that treatment. You can’t be serious. You were mocked for wearing a jacket. I’m sorry. That sucks. But don’t act like it’s some huge god damn crime that now other people wear leather jackets without being made fun of. Punks are’t some fucking oppressed group. Just. Stop.“Ghetto swag hoodrats,” ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS.
That awkward moment where rock n roll came from black people, and hip hop and punk shared the same style and solidarity before punk and rock n roll completely sold out to mainstream white consumerism that helped to further a racist separatist riff via white supremacy but you know… white people don’t care about rock n roll as an entity or history, white people care about ostracizing PoC (and especially black people) from their creations and then getting extra racist when people dare to journey back for reclamation.
Can we take a minute to appreciate that this ignorant racist mother fucker is doing exactly the same thing they’re complaining about (mocking people for manner of dress) ANNNND they’re not even original with it (this shit is historical); black people within rock n roll POST RACIST CONSUMERISM THAT SEPARATING AND OUTSTED ROCK N ROLL’S BLACK CREATORS are constantly mocked and pushed out by white folk for supposedly not belonging (by basis of not being white). Go fuck yourself, you’re doing the same tired shit and acting righteous on top of it (no, you’re just like the rest of the mainstream racists in the scene- see black folk in “your clothes” listening to “your music” and in “your scene” and then you act like racist shits).
White people within the rock n roll scene mocking black people and PoC for showing up to the music they love and dressing how they like is part of white Afro Punk even has to exist.
But there’s no history or precident…
That’s not true. Having Punk roots, there’s a ton of cultural exchange that was happening between punks and hip-hoppers in the 70′s. Black Punks and White B-Boys were fairly commonplace until commercialization of those two scenes intentionally divided it along racial line.
If you need more proof, there is a certain song you’re likely to hear play at some ‘old-school’ Goth nights.
This song [Blondie’s Rapture], in case you didn’t know, is talking about the cultural exchange that was happening between the Punk/New Wave scene and the Hip-Hop scene in New York in the late 70′s and early 80′s. Punks were literally escorted to hip-hop shows in the South Bronx, and those same Hip-Hoppers were coming down to Punk / New Wave shows in Manhattan.
I hope to gods Rock N Roll mainstream becomes “ghetto” AKA BLACK again, maybe then it’ll get some damn soul. Also shit ton of racist ass white people will hop onto something else and leave a less aggressively racist environment for black people (and all PoC) within the RnR community at large.
But I mean really:
Hip Hop, Rock, And Punk will do juuuuust fine without the fuckwads such as you and yours. (◠‿◠✿) (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
hey dudes just fyi women are basically inundated w/ messages on how their bodies should look from childhood on so when they mention an aspect of aforementioned body that they feel self-conscious about and in response you offer them a compliment on how hot you think they are or whatever like it’s going to prompt a sudden re-evaluation of their self-worth realize that although done with good intentions
when a cishet says they care about gay marriage what they really mean is
“i would rather avoid real issues and talk about how all love is equal and how we all bleed red because i dont want to admit my part in the systematic oppression of queer and trans* people”
Listen to your body. Talk to plants. Ignore people.

we’ll lay our sleeping bags on the floors of old abandoned buildings
an acoustic guitar and we’ll sing ourselves through sobriety
spare some change for some food to eat maybe once or twice a day spend the rest on booze and hope we’re not too drunk to concentrate
and we’ll sing! our lousy songs! our lonely tunes! and we’ll sing our lonely asses to sleep!
…[some] may not remember what made Iran-Contra such an extraordinary scandal. The Reagan administration “raised money privately” by selling weapons to a sworn enemy of the United States. Why? Because it wanted to fund an illegal war in Nicaragua. And when I say “illegal war,” I mean that quite literally—Congress told the Reagan administration, in no uncertain terms, that Reagan could not send money to the Contras. Period. The Reagan administration, unrestrained by laws and the Constitution, did so anyway, and much of the president’s national security team ended up under indictment.
Reagan knew everything. However, I bet this Time magazine piece doesn’t get into the juiciest part of Iran-Contra, which is that in the 1980s the CIA put into operation a crack cocaine pipeline to import narcotics from Central and South America and distribute it in US inner cities. This is not a “conspiracy theory”, this is a documented conspiracy, most rigorously researched and reported by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Gary Webb, whose series in the San Jose Mercury News and subsequent book “Dark Alliance” literally got him killed. To me, that’s the story of Iran-Contra: not that Reagan sold weapons to Iran, but that the US government imported and sold crack to Black America, as part of an arms and drugs trade which funded war in the Third World and which devastated lives and filled prisons in the USA.
I’m old enough to remember this and it’s depressing that everyone forgot.
This conflicts with the neo-con narrative fiction that Reagan was the best president ever…so of course its been filed out of sight and mind. If a democrat had done it though, the outrage would be heard to the high heavens…

It also means that 97 percent of how men are portrayed in media are decided on by men. Something to remind MRAs and their ilk of when they complain about the stereotype of men as inept slobs, bad fathers, etc in media and advertising.
Men have the power. So when we men are shat on by the powers that be you don’t get to try and blame women for that.
How much of that is white men tho?
Also of that 3% it’s mostly white women
“Lilo and Stitch” 2002
Lilo plays a trick on the tourists.
IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU’D UNDERSTAND
I desperately need to understand
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY
Was this scene cut from the movie??!!
Fucking christ, do you know what this would have done? What this would have meant to SO MANY people?? The truth of this is devastating. And to think it almost found it’s way into a DISNEY film??
The inclusion of this scene alone would have made it the greatest animated feature the company ever produced. Easily. And if you think that’s hyperbolic clearly you don’t understand.
No, really, if anyone knows why this was cut PLEASE let me know.
oh man WHY WOULD they cut this, this is so great, holy MOLY
It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped)
Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.
I’ve been seeing this around my dash and think it deserves some more recognition!
This shit is hilarious, too.
NO WAIT SHIT
I GET IT NOW
I GET WHY SHE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING TOURISTS AS A HOBBY
SHE WAS BEING FUCKING SATIRICAL AND OBJECTIFYING
IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A DUMB KID WITH A WEIRD HOBBY IT’S BECAUSE THEY DO THAT TO HER AND HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY LIKE SHE’S SOME KIND OF FUCKING THEME PARK CHARACTER AND SHE WANTS THEM TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS
HOLY FUCKING DICKS DISNEY WHY WOULD YOU CUT THIS
It really pisses me off how fighting for being treated like a human being is now labelled as ‘social justice’ like it’s some optional clique you can just join rather than it being a struggle you have to fight daily.
