one of my favourite things is that if someone says they like oitnb we can like!! automatically be friends??? i mean ?? literally?
are they homophobic? no
are they transphobic? no
are they racist? no
are they sexist? i doubt it
do they judge non native speakers for having accents? probably not
That means WHITE PEOPLE are telling POC stories with a confidence that they know what its actually like.
That means WHITE PEOPLE have used the n-word several times (and had non poc characters say it)
That means WHITE PEOPLE had a black character say there is such a thing as reverse racism and black people are just as racist.
That means WHITE PEOPLE used terms like ‘ape’ and ‘animals’ to describe the black inmates
That means WHITE PEOPLE had Black Cindy call Abdullah ‘jihad’ like it was a term of endearment.
That’s messed up. Even if they have the best of intentions, you cannot say their race doesn’t play a factor in their characters. The show and the prison is divided by race. So directly or indirectly, these writers are genuinely not writing with anything but what would [enter race here] say?
1) Poussey and Soso’s relationship was the most beautiful romantic relationship this show ever created, and they had to kill Poussey for shock value. Soso is now alone without her “person” and I am pissed as hell.
2) Poussey deserved better, no respect was shown for her and I am disgusted.
3) My Nicky is back and I was the happiest girl ever!!
4) The Nicky/Red reunion was beautiful and I’ll watch this scene over and over again till season 5.
5) I still hate Piper with a freaking passion, she’s still the annoying self-centered bitch from the previous seasons, but of course, that was expected. I wish she’d be gone once and for all, she’s the least interesting character from this show.
6) I still don’t ship Piper and Alex… And to think we’re sticking with this abusive, annoying couple while we could’ve keep the beautiful and healthy romance between Poussey and Soso is pissing me off to no end.
7) Poussey deserved better.
8)Thank god, Sophia is back, and now I hope she’ll try to get the sister out as well.
9) Humpthrey is way more disgusting than Pornstache and he needs to die!
10) My precious Tiffany is way too precious for this world and needs to be protected (thanks for taking care of that, Boo).
11) Bennett didn’t come back and I’m sad.
12) The “baby mouse” scene was disgusting, poor Maritza (and poor baby mouse).
13)We got more Cindy this season and that made me happy!
14) Taystee and Caputo was brotp AF this season and I liked that.
15) Poussey deserved better.
16) I need the old guards back!
17) I can’t stand most of the white people on this show and I am freaking white!
18)Taystee crying over Poussey’s body was the most heartbreaking part of this season and I’m not over it.
Also, even though this season was heartbreaking, they killed it in their acting game!
Like, Taylor Schilling as Piper, I felt the sincerity in the sorry she screamed to Alex and the pain and sorrow when she was getting branded and when she was talking to her brother!
Laverne Cox being broken and desperate in shu as Sophia. Diane Guerrero when Maritza told Flaca about eating the mouse and Lori Petty playing Lolly perfectly! The hilariousness of her comments to the seriousness of her situation…she definitely broke my heart.
Adrienne C. Moore and Vicky Jeudy as Cindy and Watson, watching them mourn was also heartbreaking, when their laughter and fond memories turned to tears.
And Danielle Brooks as Taystee, she was amazingly heart-wrenching, I cried so hard when she cried for Poussey, her friend her best friend! And felt that pain and then felt that anger when they didn’t acknowledge the truth of what happened to Poussey, it was absolutely devastating and she did such an incredible performance!
