hispanic accent

Guys, do yourself a favor and listen to The Birdcage from the next room.

I’m serious. It’s one of the greatest movies ever to begin with, but if you JUST listen to it and keep the TV out of sight, you’ll soon realize the other phenomenal take on this story.

The main character, Genie from Aladdin

and his long-time spouse, Timon from The Lion King

(who happen to run a drag club together)

have a son, the recently de-closeted nerd from Will & Grace.

He’s trying to get married to Ally McBeal

but they have a problem: Her dad, General Mandible from Antz

is a narrow-minded asshole and wants to stop her. Luckily her mom, Peg from Edward Scissorhands

wants to meet the family to give them a chance.

In their desperation, Genie calls Martha May Whovier from The Grinch to help him pass as straight.

And from there hilarity ensues. Bonus shenanigans come from Genie and Timon’s housekeeper Hispanic!Bartok, whose accent occasionally dips in and out of half the cast of The Simpsons.

Okay okay I realize you can do this sort of thing with basically any movie out there, but I promise you, The Birdcage is especially good at it. Even one Genie/Timon scene is enough to make the experience worth it. Just try it ONE time, I promise you’ll have a blasty-blast.

Disney and Racial Representation

In the chapter “You Can’t Lionise The Lion” by Eleanor Byrne and Martin McQuillan, the author analyzes Disney’s racial missteps and subliminal slurs that contribute to the construction and maintenance of a fortified social hierarchy. The author cites specific examples such as the usage of African American and Hispanic voice actors for the villainous hyenas in The Lion King to illustrate the injustice that Disney has done in terms of race (Byrne, McQuillan 100). But it doesn’t stop there; Disney’s many racial passes exploited in this chapter, including using black voice actors as inconsequential side characters like Mushu and Sebastian in Mulan and The Little Mermaid. Byrne and McQuillan expose Disney’s disposition to racial stereotypes through the analysis of these specific instances that are seen throughout the past century of Disney films.

          The author points out that by personifying the hyenas in The Lion King as African American and Hispanic, Disney is advancing racial stereotypes about both races. By introducing the characters as thugs and assigning them a Hispanic or African American accent, Disney provides a negative connotation about these races that are sure to resound with the children who watch the film. Another aspect that the author points out is that oftentimes, African American characters in Disney’s films mostly play a secondary role. Mushu, voiced by Eddie Murphy, is the sidekick to Mulan and mostly presumes the role as comedic relief throughout the movie. In utilizing an African American voiced character in this manner, Disney is reducing their importance and illustrating them as second-order citizens because they are not important enough to carry the role as a lead character. In The Little Mermaid, Sebastian the sea crab is a tiny creature that accompanies Ariel throughout the film. Sebastian’s servitude is reminiscent of the way that African Americans were viewed in the slavery era; the African American was worthless aside from his service to his white counterpart. Disney creates a social and racial hierarchy through the representation of these ideas, by presenting black Americans as either lowly thugs as the hyenas in The Lion King or as second class citizens as the sidekicks to Ariel and Mulan.

             I believe that Byrne and McQuillan are correct in their analyses and assumptions regarding Disney’s construction of racial hierarchy. By presenting African Americans and Hispanics in the manner that Disney has in The Lion King, Mulan, and The Little Mermaid; these groups are bestowed the connotation of savagery and unimportance. Children who watch these movies are exposed to the racial slights and are taught through subliminal messages that people of color are lowly and inconsequential. This is dangerous because it teaches our children to assume racial stereotypes and accept them as fact at a very young age. If we are to build a better future that excludes and shuns racism and stereotyping, we must first expose Disney for the racial messages they are providing through children’s films. Disney, in turn, must heed to this criticism and reform its movies to object and reject racist messages rather than fostering and advancing them.

That’s me. My name is Jordan Luis Corona. I am a 17 years old, bisexual, Mexican-Filipino from the San Francisco Bay Area.

I know #mirame isn’t nearly going to get as much recognition or popularity as #blackout did, since tumblr as a whole pretty much ignores the hispanic/latino community. So let me fucking get a few things straight.

My father works as a database developer, not a gardener/construction worker/house painter.

Yes, he speaks with a heavy hispanic accent, but he understands French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and English, so fuck you if you make fun of him for it.

No, my family is not here illegally.

No, not every Latino/Hispanic household has a fucking chihuahua.

Yes, we know how to fucking use condoms.

No, Taco Bell is not Mexican cuisine.

They’re my friends, we’re not fucking gang members.

No, I won’t hook you up with marijuana.

No, I don’t grow it.

Got it? Mkay.

So yeah. If you don’t think #mirame is something you can fully get behind, that’s fine. If you don’t care, that’s fine. But don’t you fucking dare wear your dollar-store-bought sombrero and fake mustache to the nearest bar, singing “la bamba” and wishing everyone a happy Cinco De Mayo. Don’t berate Latinos and Latinas simply because you have an ungrounded misconception that we’re lazy, irresponsible, poor, and illegal. Don’t demonize us, call us racist names like “Dirty Sanchez”, “Pinto Bean”, “Borderhopper”, et cetera and still expect us to adhere to your ridiculous beauty standards on what the “ideal”, “sexy” latino/latina should look like. We are human beings too.

Also, please don’t think that just because i said that tumblr by and large ignores the hispanic and latino communities, that i resent this website or anyone on it. I’m proud to be a part of this community. I just want for my ethnic group, and out struggles as a part of that ethnic group, to be validated, just for one day of the year.

This is who I am. Mirame.

Silent Hill III Poem
  • Silent Hill III Poem
  • Me and my hispanic accent
Play

“Pure eyes, blue like a glassy bead—
You are always looking at me
and I am always looking at you.

Ah, you’re too meek—
beautiful, unspoiled:
thus I’m so sad, I suffer—
and so happy, it hurts.

I want to hurt you
and destroy myself
What you would think
if you knew how I felt.

Would you simply smile,
not saying a word?
Even curses from your mouth
would be as beautiful as pearls.

I place my left hand on your
face as though we were to kiss.
Then I suddenly shove my thumb
deep into your eyesocket.
Abruptly, decisively,
like drilling a hole.

And what would it feel like?
Like jelly?
Trembling with ecstasy, I obscenely
mix it around and around: I must
taste the warmth of your blood.

How would you scream?
Would you shriek "It hurts!
It hurts!” as cinnabar-red tears
stream from your crushed eye?

You can’t know the maddening
hunger I’ve felt in the midst of
our kisses, so many of them
I’ve lost count.

As though drinking in your cries,
I bring my hopes to fruition:
biting your tongue, shredding it,
biting at your lips as if tasting
your lipstick.

Oh, what euphoric heights I would
reach, having my desires fulfilled
like a greedy, gluttonous cur.
I longed, too, for your cherry-tinted
cheeks, tasty enough to bewitch my
tongue.

I would surely be healed,
and would cry like a child.

And how is your tender ear?
It brushes against my cheek;
I want it to creep up to my lips so
I can sink my teeth into its flesh.

Your left ear, always hearing words
whispered sweet as pie-
I want it to hear my true feelings.
I never lied, no…
but I did have my secrets.

Ah, but what must you think of me?
Do you hate me? Are you afraid?
As though inviting you to the agony
at the play’s end, if you wish, you
could destroy me—I wouldn’t care.

As you wish, you may destroy me

–I wouldn’t care.“

I Wanna Know, Can You Show Me? || Ennis and Magnus

Magnus was sitting by the pool, when he heard the intercom chirping. A voice with a strong hispanic accent spoke through the device. “Dr. Archer, there is a man at the door. He is very tall and very threatening, should I call the police?” Magnus lifted an eyebrow, and walked up to the intercom, pressing the button to speak. “Let him in, Flora. He is not a threat, he is a friend. A security guard from college. You may take the rest of the day off.” There was a pause. “But I didn’t prepare anything for dinner, Dr. Archer.” He smiled softly. “Worry not, I can order something to eat later. You may let Mr. Graymark in. Tell him to wait for me in the living room while I change.”

He went to his bedroom, switching from his wet swimwear to a pair of sweatpants and a tank top. When that was dealt with, he went downstairs, entering the living room and greeting Ennis with a wave. “Have you eaten? Flora is on her way out, but we can always order something to eat, if you feel like it. I must confess I am not hungry right now…” He smiled a bit, and rubbed the back of his neck.
