this movie is hard to color

But one thing I’ve been dying to talk about is the fandom’s disregard for Boba Fett and a possible movie for him.  And it isn’t just that, it’s that people compare his importance to someone like Yoda, or even Chewbacca. I’ve noticed a trend mainly from white fans whodiminish Boba’s importance and equate him and his character to non-humans. (And this is something I have seen explicitly from the tumblr fandom–mainly the white women. On every other platform, the idea of a Boba Fett movie is very well accepted). 

One thing I noticed is that over all, the fandom was very well receptive of the Kenobi movie. When the Han Solo movie was announced, people had their doubts but eventually opened up to it—especially when they hard Emelia Clarke would be the female co-star.

However, when it was said a Boba Fett movie was in the process, this actually got people angry and eventually these same people were cheering on the fact that the Han Solo movie had replaced Boba’s movie.

There are a few problems with this and the racism in these certain fans is evident.

First and foremost, diminishing a man of color’s importance to a non-human being is insulting and a very racist trope. People of color, especially black and brown men are equated to non-humans (animals) in literature/media as a way to diminish their intelligence and agency as human beings. The fans may not have known they were doing this, but it certainly is a problem. It has happened for years.

(Rest is under the cut!)

Journal Prompts

figured i’d take a stab at making some prompts. Tag me if you use them!! I wanna see what you make :>>>

1. Pick a year, maybe the year you/your friend/your crush was born. Find out important things that happened that year. The top song played on the radio, the movie that won at the oscars, any notable inventions? 

2. Pick a color. Do everything in that color. Try different shades of the same color, or do it all in one shade for hard mode

3. Draw a self portrait without looking at yourself on one page, and another one while seeing your reflection/a picture of yourself

4. Make a playlist of your current favorite songs / use their lyrics 

5. What’s your favorite room? Your bedroom, a class room? Why do you like it? What’s in it? Draw it. 

6. draw an alternative world. Maybe it’s the same as our current word but some people have horns? Maybe it’s a world entirely encompassed in an hourglass? 

7. Are you superstitious? If yes, write/draw about you biggest superstition. If no, write/draw about one that interests you. 

8. Where would you go on a roadtrip? Write/draw about the locations you’d love to see.

9. Write/draw about how you feel at 3am. 

10. Whats your first ever memory?

11. Sit in front of a mirror and make 5 funny faces and draw yourself. 

12. Write / draw your favorite myth. 

13. Draw your hands 

14. Collect all the ‘left over’ bits for a week: receipts, fruit stickers, notes, wrappers. Then make a journal page out of them. 

15. Print out one of your favorite poems. Cut each word out and rearrange it. It probably wont make any sense but it will still somehow feel like your favorite poem.
