greatest race

Sir John Young Stewart,  (born 11 June 1939) is a British former Formula One racing driver from Scotland. Nicknamed the “Flying Scot”, he competed in Formula One between 1965 and 1973, winning three World Drivers’ Championships, and twice runner-up, over those nine seasons. He also competed in Can-Am. In 2009 he was ranked fifth of the fifty greatest Formula One drivers of all time by journalist Kevin Eason who wrote: “He has not only emerged as a great driver, but one of the greatest figures of motor racing

I am all for poc being cast in roles that highlight their cultural history and struggles

But can we also campaign for giving poc roles that are about an average person with average problems????? Roles that are given to white people by default…….

A black girl in a romance movie where the greatest obstacle isn’t her race and the greatest reward isn’t that she ends up with the white dude…….

A romantic comedy where all the poc characters aren’t stereotyped by what Hollywood classifies as their culture…..

A coming of age story starring a diverse group of children instead of a token (stereotyped) minority character…..

Can we make movies that don’t make the family dynamics in black or latinx culture dramatic or toxic?????

Can we have more Muslim representation in general????????

Can we show non-christian religions as more than oppressive?????

Can we give poc more roles than the ones that were “written for them”?????

Can we make movies showing the true diversity of society rather than trying to convince ppl that poc are just sprinkles in a white world ????????

[The Iliad] is remarkable for the way that its preoccupation with mortality and the human conditions extends even to the enemy. The killing of Hektor by the central figure of the Iliad, Achilles, is a great victory for the Greeks, and yet the camera immediately shifts, as we witness the gut-wrenching reactions of Hektor’s mother, father, and wife to his death. Similarly, the Iliad ends not with the funeral of Achilles, who is doomed to die very soon, but instead with the funeral of Hektor. Achilles’ own short life and imminent death resonate throughout the laments that are sung for his deadliest enemy. In the words of Simone Weil, who was struck by the equity of compassion with which the suffering of the Greeks and Trojans is narrated: “The whole of the Iliad lies under the shadow of the greatest calamity the human race can experience - the destruction of the city. This calamity could not tear more at the heart had the poet been born in Troy. But the tone is not different when the Achaeans are dying, far from home.”

I just realized in Windhelm the Dunmer are the ones treated like trash by the Nords and forced to live in a ghetto (for lack of a better term) and I’m not excusing the racism/xenophobia exhibited by the Stormcloaks and Ulfric but the Dunmer do exactly the same thing in Morrowind except they didn’t just look down on the other races they literally enslaved them??? Dunmer are objectively the most xenophobic race imho.

Yeah your eyebrows are sisters not twins! But I always tell people- bitch, if your eyebrows are fucking sisters, at least make sure they have the same father cause that bitch is arching and that ones looking real, real circular. So just make sure that you know you take their fuckin eyebrow asses to Maury and get a DNA test cause we need to know who the father is, because I’m really confused at what emotion you’re giving me.
