anonymous asked:

I have a serious question that I already asked several antifa blogs and they all ignored it, maybe you can answer. Why do I see so many antifas directly participate in cultural appropriation (e.g. wearing dreadlocks or keffiyehs) while advocating against racism? To me it looks like most antifa are against racism because it is a part of facism, but ultimately they are not truly interested in the struggles of poc and they don't truly care to fight against all forms of racism. I don't trust them!

I’ll respond since I’m one of the Official MOC (mods of color) so here we go…

It’s just the same thing we see on every aspect of the political spectrum where white people fail to see how they’re contributing to the oppression of POC. Honestly the response I get from most antifas when I (or others) call out racism is that whole “we’re on your side,” bullshit, and “why should we be fighting each other when there are bigger assholes/issues to deal with.” Like they call themselves anti-racist and say shit like “make racists afraid again,” but that’s because they see themselves different from those other racists. They throw around this shit thinking that it absolves them of racism and it doesn’t. 

However, I think it’s most telling when we see the reactions from those who we voice our concerns to. Are they going to listen and learn why their actions are racist/harmful or are they going to throw a fit and invalidate our concerns? Like, I don’t want to hear the excuses or why you’re not as bad as ____, or hear the “we’re all one,” bullshit. 

When I was young,
my mother used to warn me
not to look right into
the Sun: I could damage my
eyes from the
heat.

The first time I met you,
I could not look directly
into your eyes; I still
can’t.
I’d never expected
to find the Sun
burning
in them.
—  your eyes bore into me with the intensity of the sun and i do not know what to do with all this heat. i never knew the sun shone through people, too. // a.s.m

sergeantstardust replied to your post “Do you ever think about that phrase Chirrut said in R1 “the force…”

i love how circumstances in which someone takes another person’s life can directly affect the way a person’s imprint in the force “looks like”, Chirrut also mentions Jyn’s path is clear even though she’s killed people too but same applies to jedi knights. cassian’s darkness isn’t his “evilness” following him but his hurt and if that’s not heartbreaking i don’t know what it is

HONESTLY THO? Like someone who kills for the pleasure of killing or because it makes them more powerful has a different imprint than someone who suffers through it and hurts? because in the end is that?

also yes, & I feel too that jyn as a sort of tunnel vision at that point, she fucking climbs a massive ladder into an IMPERIAL platform filled with stormtroopers. she’s unstoppable. While cassian is weighed by what he has to do from the start? According to the novel he’s talking himself into killing Galen Erso & justifies it but at the same time knows it will destroy jyn & knows she will probably kill him for it? and his thought is that he has probably gone there for that & that there are worst ways to die????? I mean, those are not the thoughts of a man free of guilt who can live with killing people. Cassian wants to either die or get absolution through most of r1, that’s gotta be some palpable dark juju around him. 

  • me: I feel like evidence suggests Gamzee Makara may be controlled at the same degree that Crockertier Jane and Grimbark Jade were controlled, which allows them to exercise free will with an altered perception and a very clear goal in mind.
  • some asshole: UM IT'S NOT STATED DIRECTLY IN CANON TEXT SO I DON'T BELIEVE YOU.
  • me: That's true, but it is stated that lil cal can control people, and that Gamzee was told by lil cal to kill people, and that Doc Scratch seems to think of him as a sucker, and there is imagery that suggest Gamzee has infact looked into lil cal's eyes directly, which seems to be a requirement for the control. I can link you to each instance of evidence if you'd like, I'm more than capable...
  • them: WOW YOU'RE AN ABUSE APOLOGIST DON'T TALK TO ME ALSO VRISKA IS THE BEST.
  • me: lmao ok bye. have fun being a hypocrite bye.
(I got tagged for the)3 things you don't know about me!

Got tagged by @mayormaiamai, and I figured why not? XD

1- I had 3 art teachers, (one in high school and two in college) that told me to give up art entirely. They told me directly (and in front of my classmates) that I had no talent and that no one would ever like anything that I made. They said my work was terrible and worthless. Lesson here is don’t listen when people tell you junk like that. They’re not being constructive, they’re not looking out for you or helping you, and WHAT THE HECK MAKES THEM THE ALL-KNOWING JUDGE OF THE UNIVERSE??? There are always gonna be people out there that try to hurt you and tell you you’re not worth anything. They’re wrong and completely not worth paying attention to.


2- Nichelle Nichols held my hand once when I was getting her autograph at a convention. She is my hero. It was amazing. I totally almost cried.


3-  I was born on a Friday the 13th! And so I ended up with the nickname “13″. Which resulted in a funny moment when an interested fella was asking  about me and a friend responded “Oh her? She’s 13!” and he was horrified until he realized that 13 was just a nickname and not my actual age.

skittlesandlemonade  asked:

what do y'all feel about people complaining about Zendaya being asked to play Aaliyah in the new movie about her? I have my reasons as to why I don't think she'd be the right person for the role, but people are saying she's not "black enough" like???

Not kpop, but I’ll answer :P

She’s not as dark as Aaliyah (also, she doesn’t look like her at all) and we all know that there are literally thousands of actresses who are and would fit the bill more directly (not to mention be better actresses all around), but they passed those girls up for Zendaya either because of her current popularity or something else. It reminds me of the Zoe Saldana/Nina Simone thing, but not as extreme. Hollywood has a way of casting pretty much all bio pics of black women with lighter skinned leads no matter what the actual woman herself looked like, so I think that’s where the anger came from.

Calling her not ‘black enough’ isn’t cool though and it completely detaches from the real issue. Her blackness is not up for debate and being lighter doesn’t make her less black.
