ethnically italian

Supergirl Fandom:  “We’re all about representation!  Unless they’re a woman of color…but if she’s played by a white woman than we need to give her all of our support!  What?  Queer women aren’t all white?!” and “We’re soooo tired of Mon-El!  We’re tired of seeing straight white hetero relationships!   So take this white lesbian relationship instead!  One of them is Latina!  But not the nasty, brown, ethnic Latina!  The Italian with a nice sun tan one!  Just like Lexa! *swoons*”

“white people have no culture!!”

oh

i’m sorry

what’s that?

i wasn’t

aware

that europeans

don’t have rich

and fascinating cultures

or that culture

has to comply

with tumblr’s definition

of what culture is

in order to be counted as legitimate

white people have tons of culture so shut the fuck up about white people “not having any culture”

Victorious and Diversity

So…

1) The main character is Female and Half Latina…

2) … And so is her sister

3) The Main Character’s best friend is black

4) While his other male friends are one Jewish…

5) … And an Half-Indian, Half-Canadian guy who’s also one of the coolest guys in school.

6) As for the remaining female characters, one is portrayed by an Actress of Italian Ethnicity, and is heard speaking Spanish and then at a second time Yiddish at some point in the Series…

7) … While the other one is heavily implied to be Bisexual.

The best part of all of this is that it wasn’t even intentional for this to happen.

As a Bonus Point: All characters have some kind of shitty relationship with their relatives (or just shitty parents in general), along with some kind of neuroses or problem and what can be possibly only described as a very fluid sexuality.

What a Pro-Trump English Professor Thinks, Now That His Candidate Is President

Holy shit this guy. This man is a COLLEGE PROFESSOR. Just keep that in mind, and then read the way he answers questions:

Q: You talk about leaders having contempt: I went to an Islamic center here in California a week ago and talked to people, and they feel that Donald Trump has contempt for them. Does that sort of contempt bother you?

A: I wouldn’t call it contempt. I would call it hostility and suspicion.

Q: OK, hostility.

A: He feels that there are serious religious issues that can lead to threats. Donald Trump is that old-fashioned patriot who feels that when you come to this country, you meld into the melting pot. You can keep your Italian American ethnicity, but you are American, and if you don’t express that patriotism then something has gone wrong.

[…]

Q: My sense from reading and hearing you is that moral relativism and political correctness on college campuses and elsewhere have changed your politics. Things like, say, someone getting up on a college campus and saying America was no better than Putin’s Russia. I assume that would drive you around the bend if a liberal college professor did that. Am I wrong?

A: Well, I’ve been at meetings when people have talked in the past, like when George W. Bush was elected, about a theocon conspiracy at work. I would say, “Are you delusional?”

Q: OK, but what do you make of the president saying we were no better than Putin’s Russia?

A: You know, I was traveling.

Q: He has said this several times. Bill O’Reilly called Putin a killer, and Trump said we were no better. You are someone who talks about American greatness.

A: You know, Isaac, I didn’t see this. I’d love to have seen it.

Q: Did you see his comments at the National Prayer Breakfast, where he made a joke about Arnold Schwarzenegger?

A: I didn’t see that either. [Laughs.]

A commenter at Slate says what I was thinking the whole time I read this: So many conservatives hate tenure for teachers and college professors. This guy should be thanking his lucky stars for tenure.

Hey you know what I’d like. A bit of representation of the south eastern/
Southern Europeans in popular (read: American) media. Representation that’s not a thug/mafia criminal, a hyper sexualised woman/ or wife material™, or an old wise ‘gypsy’ woman. These are tired tropes that need to die.
Also @ my dark skin brothers and sisters to prove that (particularly slaves) aren’t all blue eyed blonde haired in fact most aren’t and some are dark enough to be mistaken for middle eastern. Some ARE middle eastern!
To my Muslim lovelies, if America knew that Bosnia has been a Christian/Muslim country for 400 years they’d shit a brick.
Basically what the fuck. Pull your finger out of your ass and understand polish, Russian, and Bulgarian are not the same. Italians, Spanish and Greek all have slight quirks and are not interchangeable with France or Germany or the Netherlands.
Thank you and goodnight 😁

DANIELLA MONET GIF PACK

Under the cut you’ll find roughly 91 gifs of the lovely, beautiful Daniella Monet from her role as Sam in Baby Daddy season 5 episode 3. Monet is famous for her role as Trina Vega in Victorious. Monet is also ethnically Chilean, Croatian, and Italian so please cast her correctly. The gifs are all small/medium, textless, and as hq as I could get. Any repeats are completely accidental though some are repeated to get a closer look at her face and her facial expressions. I made all of these gifs and honestly you can use them in anyway but if you add them to a crackship or gif hunt or anything of the sort please give me credit. Please like or reblog if you plan on using. Thank you! 1/?
