“It's funny that the people who accuse me of looking for things to get mad about seem only to find hatred and anger in a space so filled with love. And then there's this: People do social justice work for a whole lot of reasons, but, generally speaking, it isn't because they hate the world or the people in it. When I write a post about, say, the rape culture, cloaked in vibrating anger, it isn't because I hate the rape culture (although I certainly do); it's because I really love people, for the most part, and I don't want anyone, anyone, to be victimized by sexual violence, ever. Yes, I want to dismantle the rape culture, and if it were a little box placed into my hands, I would throw it to the ground and smash it into a million bits and keep grinding those bits into dust with my fists until I was dragged away. But that is not the thing that motivates me to write about the rape culture, or any other intersecting system of oppression, every day, at no small cost to myself, until I feel sometimes like I'm swimming in a sea of shit that has no shore. What motivates me is love. Love of safety. Love of agency. Love of justice. Love of people. "Isn't there anything this woman likes?" ask my incredulous critics. Yes. More than I can say. It's there to find, if you're really looking.”—Melissa McEwan on the stereotype of the “angry feminist”
Film Takes Aim at Latino Stereotyping
Filmmakers call out Latin stereotypes in media, including Warner Brothers’ character Speedy Gonzales.
A new documentary is drawing a direct correlation between the way Latinos are depicted in film and television and hate crimes against the ethnic group.
The filmmakers behind “Latinos Beyond Reel”— Edwin Pagan, Bernardo Ruiz, Alex Rivera, Miguel Picker, and Ronelle Rodriguez Torres—said they were fed up with the negative depiction of Latinos in the media, so they decided to craft their own movie in response.
“Recent acts of cultural appropriation do not occur in a vacuum and should not be viewed as isolated instances separate from their social and historic contexts. It is far more complex than hipsters in Navajo panties and pop stars in headdresses. These contemporary instances of cultural appropriation and stereotypes are really byproducts of ongoing colonialism, systemic racism, and the deliberately false narratives perpetuated about Native peoples by white society. Cultural commodification and dehumanized stereotypes extended far beyond any single corporation, retail franchise, or celebrity.”—Sasha Houston Brown - “Nothing Says Native American Heritage Month Like White Girls In Headdresses”

That Drunk Native
You’ll understand as soon as you take a quick glance at it.
Racism, stereotyping, misogynistic jokes;
“What do you call a native woman with a black eye?
Someone who can’t listen.
What do you call a native woman with 2 black eyes?
Someone who can’t learn
It is repulsive the way people are confining to the idea of what a “prep” is. I am absolutely disgusted by asks on my dash that read, “Is it preppy for me to wear red skinny jeans?” or “I’m applying to college. What schools are preppy?”
Form your own ideas. Form your own opinions. It is sickening how people restrict their behaviors and ideas in order to fit an inaccurate stereotype.
