Pairing: Wonwoo - You

Summary: Wonwoo is an art student that hates drama class until his homework gets a little bit exciting.

Originally posted by wonwoowho

As much as Wonwoo loved art he just couldn’t stand his drama class, most of it was because of his annoying teacher, her voice was always filled with pretentiousness, her comments were always filled with judgement, she could never say ‘good job’ or ‘I like what you did there’ instead she said stuff like ‘that was nice but you got this wrong’ there was always a but and he hated it; she was also always late since she was a teacher at another school. Everyone else was really into this class because she was a director and a very good one, or that’s what everyone said, he had never seen her work, he rarely went to the theatre, just a few times as a kid with his parents but never on his own.

“Today I’m excited” His teacher said, he almost rolled his eyes at her comment ‘Now what?’ He thought “My favorite actress is doing a different monologue for three weeks and I want you all to go” He stopped listening after that knowing that she would email them the details later, she always did, he wasn’t excited at all but at least that meant no real homework for three weeks.

The Hidden Figures in Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is the Inspirational film that black people as a whole really needed to see this year. It headlines with the star power such as the academy award winning Taraji P. Henson as Mrs. Katherine Johnson, the academy award winning Octavia Spencer as Mrs. Dorothy Vaughn, and the Grammy award winning Janelle Monae as Mrs. Mary Jackson. Hidden Figures tells the story of how three brilliant and brave black women become the very foundation of the engineering and computing of NASA’s role in the infamous Space Race. Through sheer determination and will these ladies blow past the obstacles of racism and discrimination and literally fly over the stumbling blocks of sexism to become some of the brightest minds to grace the National Aeronautics Space Association. 

        First things first. This movie shows Black People, more specifically Black Women, succeeding, overcoming, and winning on the big screen. Just like with Colin Kapernick, Marvel’s Black Panther, and all the Black Women into the Olympics: representation matters. It’s important for us as a people to have positive images shown to us to remind us who we are and what we’re capable of. This sets into the mind conscious and subconsciously and ignites the fire of excellence in us all. Sometimes just the glimpse of someone making the impossible possible is just what’s needed to inspire greatness.

       But what we don’t need is a false story strategically placed in our narratives that cater to the white savior complex. For those that are unfamiliar with the term “white savior”, it is a situation found in books and often in Hollywood in which a white character is seen as needed to rescue people of color from their awful predicament. This Caucasian “hero” usually stumbles on learning more about themselves in the midst of their heroic deeds. Examples of this heinous crime can be found in movies like Django, Glory, The Help, Mr. Church, Lincoln, Last Samurai, The Blind Side, and many others.

        Some white savior moments can be found in this box office hit. The first strong whiff of this comes after Katherine Johnson, played by Taraji P. Henson, comes back to her desk soaked from the rain after running across NASA’s campus to use the only colored women’s restroom in the facility. Soon after her frustrations were rightfully expressed to her supervisor AL Harrison, Kelvin Coster, he notices and removes the colored sign on the coffee machine and proceeds in the next scene to remove the colored sign above the restroom with a crowbar. Now when I saw this in New York for the first time it was before the nation wide release date. The audience cheered and applauded his actions! And to be honest it did feel good to see what seemed like a win and turnaround for us.  Unfortunately, this apparently never happened. According to Margot Lee Shetterly, author who wrote the book “Hidden Figures”, to which the movie is based on, she reveals that Johnson used the white restrooms and refused to use the colored restrooms.  Now that’s the boldness I would love to see on the big screen.

          Another fictional scene is the moment when Johnson brilliantly calculated the coordinates for John Glenn’s launch and delivered them to mission control. Once passed the doors slammed in her face and she was denied entry, at least until our hero Harrison gave her clearance to enter and take part in the success of the mission she greatly contributed to. In an interview with Katherine Johnson she explained that she was not admitted to enter mission control at the time of the launch.  It is said in the book that she “sat tight in the office, watching the transmission on a television. Theodore Melfi insisted that there is nothing wrong with placing a white savior in the African-American biopic. “There needs to be white people who do the right thing and there needs to be Black people who do the right thing, but who cares who does the right thing as long as the right thing is achieved?“

We care! POC have had their history rewritten, copied, erased, and whitewashed to favor people it has nothing to do with and is shown as false evidence to make white people feel better. It is not acceptable to rewrite our history to appease your guilty conscience. When you come across a story in which black people do the right thing AND white people do the right thing, feel free to write that movie script. I will buy my ticket early and cheer at the appropriate times. Until then, save your white savior moments for the sequel to Seabiscuit. 

 Back to the biopic, remember that every film made about the Black race and the struggle endured was 10x worse than displayed in that particular film. As sad as it is, it is the truth.  It shows a glimpse of what our people were truly dealing with during this era.  Some of which has trickled its way down to today. Maybe they don't want to be remembered on the wrong side of history, that’s why they do it. Well hopefully Hollywood will cease the white savior nonsense one day. That may be the same day when the “All Lives Matter “crew finally realizes that statement is false unless Black Lives Matter.

summary: When Victor and Yuuri announce that they’re going to vacation in Japan for a week in the summer, they don’t expect their teenaged rink mate to come stomping up to them after practice.

“I’m coming too,” Yuri Plisetsky snarls. “No way I’m letting you two go overseas for secret practice sessions or something. What time is your flight?”

Yuuri sighs when he gives him an answer. It’s good that his family home is an inn.

hey I just wanted to know I'm new to the fandom and I'm so confused on where I can look up concert times and possibly buying the tickets early if they're in my location

GOT7Official on Twitter announce all concerts and fanmeetings so follow them. It’s good to be on Twitter because you can get information about tours and organizers quickly.

anonymous asked:

hi! so is the code for the north america leg for a presale type thing? like if people get the code early they can buy tickets before 10am? or is it like a reservation of sorts for once the sale starts?

no, the code for the North American leg is a necessity to be able to buy tickets at all during the general sale. If you were verified, you should receive a code 4 - 2 hours before the sale starts on May 5th. If you don’t receive a code, you won’t be able to buy tickets.

this is their way of trying to only let fans buy tickets and no bots etc.

anonymous asked:

Harry's pre order numbers must suck because with every tour ticket sold, they are giving away a physical album CD. That's why they probably released the dates early because every ticket sold will count for his first week sales LMAO

I am SCREAMING but this is so good lmao. Henry probably thought he  was gonna take the world by storm what with how he always acts high and mighty. I hope he learned his lesson but he probably wont. I almost cant believe how bad he is flopping lmao but then again malikarma never rests. I am patiently waiting for the album prices to be reduced by half soon. Tbh no one (apart from harries and the usual suspects) is checking holo like that. I know he was so hyped and was expected to come with big sales but….of course he is  gonna sale something coz he is a white dude but keeping the interests of the public is what matters and robotrry is about as interesting and as tasteless as a cardboard. I love it
