Halle Berry thought she broke a glass ceiling when she became the first woman of color to win the Oscar for best actress in 2002. 14 years later, nobody has followed in her footsteps.

Literally every lead role is for white people. Black people cant win because the opportunity is not even available!

They need to give black actors a chance to play leads in movies that aren’t forced towards white males. Cause it’s really hard for black people to be given a chance. It’s been happening for DECADES!!!

GIVE AWAY

Hi everyone, I received two Harry Potter adult colouring books for my birthday. I figured as I can’t think of anyone to re-gift one to, maybe someone in the great tumblr stratosphere would like one?  As I recently reached 1000 followers I thought this could be a cute way of commemorating that crazy fact while I’m at it!

The rules - should be a follower I guess, but to be honest I don’t mind (I’m just                         basing this on other give aways I’ve seen and what they do ha)
                  - must be willing to give your name and address to me
                  - just like or reblog this post
                  - location is no issue
                  - I just ask that you’ll make good use of it :)

Shall I give this post a week to percolate, and set the entry deadline for Sunday 7th February at 8pm GMT

A wild Albert has appeared! 

Albert is a tentacled vampire monster and a professional boogeyman. Albert is also terribly shy, but would very much love it if you’d put on a good word about them, in case any other boogeymen asked (in case you ever found them under your bed). That would probably make Albert very happy and they’d make you nice warm tea and self knit mittens as thanks.

…..Albert isn’t all that good at the whole “being scary” thing to be quite honest.
