  • "Please leave for public safety. There’s been a shooting," police tell CNN as they’re surrounded by nothing but dozens of police with guns
  • CNN had to switch to their international news feed.
  • Wow. We’ve flipped to CNN International for coverage. And, they don’t…

Scarlett Johansson is a Zionist and supports Israel

stop reblogging pictures of her genocide-loving face

also is the current PR face of an Israeli corporation with factories built on illegally occupied Palestinian land and tapping Palestinian water reserves in order to bottle and sell them

so not just a Zionist, she also directly profits off the continuation of Palestinian oppression

"4.9%"

That’s how many speaking roles in Hollywood hits are going to Latinos. For the record, Latinos make up 16% of the U.S. population. Representation matters. (via micdotcom)

Even more alarming is that, when Latino actors are cast, they are by far more likely than any other group to be sexualized, either by revealing clothing or by being defined in the screenplay as attractive. Indeed, 36% of Hispanic actors are displayed in some sort of sexualized attire, the highest of any group looked at in the study. Hollywood seems to think America is not interested in stories about Latinos, unless they are taking their clothes off.

Let’s talk about this. Let’s talk about how most of those roles are to be hypersexualized maids, spicy armcandy love interests, and exotic criminals. Let’s talk about how many of these roles use stereotypes to make these characters as the butt of the joke. Let’s talk about though how most of those roles go to light skinned and white Latinas. Let’s talk about how shitty the representation that Latinxs do have is pretty much restricted to bullshit and biopics.

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

Your reporters are not the story. Not even if they get tear gassed. The story, THE STORY is that black people are dying because of institutional racism. Now do your jobs and tell the real story!
