Mother and daughter goals 👩‍👧👸🏾

Characters in “Get Out” and what the represent
  • The girlfriend/daughter: typical fetishizer of black people
  • Mother: Sees Black people as subserviant and there to suit her needs
  • Dad: Classic racist. Thinks there’s too many, need to be culled, and if they can’t then use them for your own purposes.
  • Brother: “Good” streotyper. Thinks they are genetically superior is some ways (athletically) but still racist because that’s racist. Not good at all because steretypes aren’t good. Thinks they are still brutes, beasts, etc. Thinks they are intellectually inferior and thus makes that point about how certain martial arts are about smarts (he’s making a point that although he will lose in physical combat that’s pure physicality based he’d never lose in one that needs intellect. Of course, he proves wrong as the main character outsmarts him TWICE during the course of the movie)
  • “Black is fashionable” guy at the “party”: Classic appropriator. Only wants us for the cool things we make. Doesn’t respect us peole but wants all our shit.
  • “How is he in bed?” girl at the “party”: Perpetuating the Mandingo streotype which paints us as sexual deviants with uncontrollable lust. Also, ties in to us being brutes, beasts, and less intellectual.
  • “Is black an advantage or disadvantage” token Asian guy: Classic POC anti-black person. Probably thinks hypervisability is a priviledge. More than likely believes being black is a privilege other POC don’t have, while somehow still think he’s intellectually and visually superior. Also important to note that he’s FULLY aware that these white people are racist but still will hang ou around them and rub elbows KNOWING full well what they do to black people and will even feel comfortable doing it to a black person as well.
  • The photographer: Typical “I’m not racist but…” person. Truly believes himself not to be racist but definitely is. Again, stereotypes us with specific talents, particularly in the art/creative departments (again, not the more “logical” and typically “intellectual” departments). Also, doesn’t respect us but wants our shit.

I’m leaving out a few of course but I think for the most part they intersect with these. They don’t really have any particular traits that seperates them from the others mentioned. I really like this movie

5-Year-Old Recreates Photo Of An Iconic Woman Every Day Of Black History Month

In an empowering celebration of Black History Month, a mother and daughter teamed up to recreate photos of iconic black women.

Every day in February, Cristi Jones of Kent, Washington, has dressed her daughter, 5-year-old Lola, as an iconic black woman, helped her recreate a photo and shared the results on Twitter. Throughout the month, Lola has channeled modern women making history like ballet dancer Misty Copeland, civil rights leaders like Rosa Parks and more.
