i mean i’ve always been sceptical of us-american cinema (i guess that’s the probably healthy european basic attitude) and the #oscarssowhite didn’t really come as a surprise.
what does surprise me, though, is how many white actors and actresses actually like to pour oil into this fire. i am really, really disappointed. like, it’s 2015, haven’t you learned anything? hasn’t your job as an actor brought you more insight into such institutionalized problematic behaviour and its mechanisms?
to be honest, i can’t even keep up anymore. i need a blacklist. helen mirren, michael caine, meryl streep, for starters. sadly enough, all three of them used to be strong cinematic favourites of mine while i was a teenager. like seriously, come on, you’re not that old (not meaning to insult old people here. i’m just saying, this isn’t last generation thinking, this is, well, pretty much the stone age).
You're very beautiful, I bet the guys are fighting to get a date with you
