black and white especial

I’ve already sung the praises of Get Out on Facebook for weaving the insidiousness of racial microaggressions into a terrifying and seriously creepy horror narrative, but as someone who enjoys horror and is usually disappointed by the genre, this movie was such a breath of fresh air. Many recent horror films like It Follows and Babadook have been good but ultimately fell short of being great in the third act; however, Get Out smashes through the third act with ease and is narratively satisfying through its entire two hour run.

PLEASE SUPPORT THIS MOVIE. SUPPORT BLACK FILM MAKERS (especially in a completely white dominated genre.) Get Out currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has already had a great opening weekend so far. Help make it even more successful.

if art isnt treating you right

- don’t erase the stuff you’ve already drawn, just make the layer invisible. if you’re anything like me then deleting in process sketches has a very light subconscious negative effect on how the drawing is turning out.

- don’t draw your sketches on white, especially if your brush is black. white is hard to draw on. change it to grey. trust me on this.

- if a sketch is almost there but not quite try mirroring it horizontally. the issues will be way easier to spot.

-if inking isnt your thing but you want outlines just paint your color over the sketch lines, then do the ink lines last.

- if you have lots of ideas but no patience with details like myself take to tiny tiny thumbnails. like im talking barely bigger than your thumb. it forces you to look at the whole picture and not just the details.

- if tiny doesnt work/you like detailing go opposite. draw REALLY huge and work your way through.

black riddler is so good y’all just the aesthetic, sharp green eyes that are almost glowing would be such a nice contrast against black skin especially a darker skinned guy. green or purple sweater vest. green undershirt with the sleeves rolled up. bowtie. always smirks at you and has a way of making you feel inferior without even having to say anything. he’s a skinny guy but he can go from flirting and quizzing you with riddles to bashing your head in with his question mark cane so fast.

Okay but for real though

I wanna see more headcanons/fics about Hazel adjusting to the 21st century. Not so much in the technology aspect but in the social aspect. Keep in mind she lived in the 1940s. BEFORE THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. Like we know she had to go to a segregated school and everything, but we never get to see her reaction to how times have changed. For example:

  • Hazel asking where the bathrooms for colored people are and Nico having to explain that they aren’t segregated anymore
  • Hazel being surprised at how nice Percy and Jason are to her because in her time white boys generally didn’t acknowledge black girls. Especially not politely. 
  • The Seven stopping at a restaurant to get something to eat and Hazel being reluctant to go through the front door. At first, everyone is confused but then Annabeth catches on and assures Hazel that the restaurant won’t refuse to serve her
  • Hazel finding out about America’s first African American President and FLIPPING OUT
  • Frank showing her MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Hazel tearing up at it

LIKE SERIOUSLY I WANT THESE ISSUES ADDRESSED

Something about the jokes comparing Blac Chyna to Joanne Prada, insinuating she had a baby with this man all to scam him out of his money, really…leave a bad taste in my mouth

It just goes to show that no matter how much money you make on your own, black women, especially those who date white men, will always be seen as gold diggers trying to “trap” and manipulate men. How quickly you all are to victimize Rob without knowing, really anything about the situation is telling.

The mean ol’ scary black lady with no emotions, who’s just out for money strikes again I guess…

“Black won a ring toss and gives White the teddy bear prize.”

Requested some time ago by @laranthir-of-the-wyld

And a sequel bonus:

“Here’s your prize, Black!”

A chicago man was kidnapped from his home and tortured.

The man, whose name has not been released yet, was abducted from his home by a group of people claiming to be from the Black Lives Matter movement. As a human being, I care for equal rights, no matter your skin color. I support BLM.

What I do not support are the scum of the earth who kidnap and torture people based on the color of their skin. Be you black or white or hispanic or asian, it is unacceptable and disgusting behaviour, especially when these horrible swines claim to want to be treated like anyone else. I do not accept them as BLM activists. They are criminals.

The video I am talking about is of a woman, Brittany Herring, filming herself and her friends as they stab and beat a man. A person. A human being, with feelings and emotions. A person with special needs. They scalped him using a knife and laughed as he cried and begged for mercy. They forced him to drink toilet water while they kicked and stabbed him, yelling “Fuck Donald Trump, Fuck white people”.

Furtermore, I am deeply disturbed by the lack of coverage on this. I’m talking about Huffington Post, Salon, CNN, and The New York Times. I’ll tell you who are; infowars, Dailymail, ABCNEWS, CBS NEWS, and The New York Post.

BY THE WAY, the Chicago Police concluded that “they were just kids and kids make stupid mistakes”. It’s funny when a black human being gets murdered or arrested, they get tried for adults, even when they are actually children. And when it matters the most, the police department completely pulls a 180. This was not a mistake. They are adults. They will be held accountable.

This is wrongfully being called The BLM Kidnapping. But they are not BLM. They are scum.

White people love talking about and bringing up race when it’s something bad about a black person/people but when it’s something good they “don’t see why race has to be brought into it”. You see being black was always supposed to be a mark of shame and not being black a sense of pride, especially for whites. Once black people started embracing blackness and having “black pride” the calls of “reverse racism” and to “be colorblind” began. The “reverse racism” logic comes from; if being black was supposed to be a sense of shame and not being black a sense of pride, then being proud to be black must also mean being proud not to be white (or any non black race).

anonymous asked:

PSA to all the stoners out there especially white people and non black poc: tell your friends and yourself to STOP saying "you're n***** lipping the blunt" when someone gets the end wet. It's so damn racist and ignorant to hear that shit at a get together. Thanks for listening. Love the work you both do on this blog.

.

oh btw i just saw Hidden Figures and I would HIGHLY recommend it

  • the vast majority of the characters are Black
  • bechdel test? blown out of the fucking water

  • touches on the problem of Black patriarchy as well as white racism
  • inspiring to young girls & especially young Black girls
  • great soundtrack, wonderful acting, beautiful cinematography ………. idk it’s just amazing GO SEE IT

I’ve had to bust ass to be in this industry. A lot of things are very black and white. Aquaman is especially cool because being a Kanaka Maoli, being Hawaiian, our Gods are Kanaloa and Maui, and the Earth is 71 percent water, so I get to represent that. And I’m someone who gets to represent all the islanders, not some blond-haired superhero. It’s cool that there’s a brown-skinned superhero.

Speaking of Zoe, and the other Zoe Kravitz…

im always really put off with how they realized they were black, or “found their blackness”  only after white people put them in their place. 

these two , especially Kravitz,and many other biracial people, always only “come to embrace” their blackness because whites wouldnt give them a pass. and its sickening that so many people eat that shit up. 

they;re always spouting off with “ i thought i was just as white as them-” or “ but then they wanted to touch my hair” or “ i couldnt /cant get roles i want because im not quite white” and then and only then do they start struggling to sound pro-black. 

White society: refuses to recognize, showcase, and celebrate black beauty.

Black women: points out the problem

White society: “stop bitching, if you want to see better representation than you have to do something about it yourselves”

Black women: *creates their own spaces to celebrate black beauty

White society: “that’s racist, you shouldn’t exclude people”


White society: limits mobility for black actors and entertainers, especially in film and television / caters media specifically to white audiences

Black people: points out the problem

White society: “stop bitching, make something yourself”

Black people: creates own networks, award shows, and films and television specifically catered to black audiences and with the express purpose of giving more jobs and better visibilitiy to black artists.

White society: “that’s racist, white people don’t have their own channels and award shows; also. . black films? Entertainment should be made for everybody.”


White society: continues to treat blacks as second class and unprotected citizens

Black people: CALMLY points out the problem

White society: “not our problem”

Black people: creates black movement to protest the problem, through which some results finally start showing

White society: “that’s divisive, ALL LIVES MATTER… also this is not how you achieve results, you need to be more calm and civil, like my bff MLK!”
