"OH MY GOD FROZEN DISNEY ONLY EVER DOES MOVIES ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE THEY’RE SO RACIST I HATE THEM"
Disney only does movies about white people.
How they never have
any people of color
from any other cultures
And they totally glorify the white man
And totally marginalize their plights
And overall refuses to give children of color characters to relate to
Those racist bastards.
Oh look a couple of characters of color sprinkled in a sea of whiteness! Some even come with their own racial stereotypes! Good for you Disney! Good for you Disney Fans for finding these! Now us minorities will shut up with our scraps!
Disney may not only do movies with white people, but
^this movie relies on indigenous stereotypes and a bastardization of what a “spirit animal” is. The voice cast is mostly white. Also, the main character spends most of his time as an animal.
^This movie pushes the “strong independent black woman” racist trope and thus not affording Tiana the treatment many of the white princesses are given. The Prince is racially ambiguous which is problematic in the discussion of how black women are treated as love interests onscreen. Also, the main character spends most of her time as an animal.
^ this movie completely misrepresents the agency women had in China, as well as the roles ancestors played in the lives of Chinese families. It is also definitely racist in its depiction of Mongolians (the Hun Army), and there is criticism about white washing some characters (Yao and the Emperor particularly). The main sidekick is constantly making Asian jokes. The Emperor is a “wise asian man on top of the mountain” stereotype tied up in a Confucius bow.
^This film had a voice cast that was 98% white and 100% not South American.
^This film had a voice cast that was 99% white (Lea Salonga sings one song as Jasmine but that’s it). It contained racist lyrics such as “where they cut off your ear/if they don’t like your face/it’s barbaric/but hey, it’s home”. Jasmine is the epitome of an exotic beauty and her lead animator admitted to designing her face based on his white daughter. Jafar is a complete racial caricature of a “sneaky Arab”, complete with darker skin and more angular features than Aladdin and Jasmine.
^This movie took the life of a real woman, a woman who endured rape and kidnapping, and turned it into a movie where she falls in love with a man who was in reality hugely instrumental through his writings in the colonizing and murder of her people, a man she met when she was a child. Her appearance is incredibly anglicized and she is the epitome of a “noble savage” stereotype. Also the entire film is totally infused with racist stereotypes of indigenous people “being one with nature.”
^This one not only uses racial slurs throughout the entire film, it also totally relies on racial stereotypes. Esmeralda is sexualized (both through her relationship to the three main men in the film and her dance in the festival scene), and her people are shown as an entire group whose livelihood is achieved through mummery. Also, Quasimodo, having two Roma parents, is completely whitewashed so as to be an acceptable leading man for the film. Also, white white white voice casting (even for the POC characters).
^This is one film that did much better than others, though I have definitely read critiques about the misuse of the word/idea of “ohana”. In addition, Lilo is voiced by a white actress and you gotta admit that the film is just as much, if not more, about Stitch as it is about Lilo. Merchandising of the film has certainly taken that route— you’re much more likely to find something Stitch than Lilo.
I mean nice try I guess but you’re still super wrong.
Btw yeah they totally did “marginalize the plights” of the characters in many of these films.
I’m going to forever reblog this for every single time I see the “but Disney has POC Characters” argument.
'Cause guess again.
BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO.
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.
Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.
Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?

Chickasaw Nation: The Fight to Save a Dying Native American Language
A 50,000 year-old indigenous Native American tribe that has weathered the conquistadors, numerous wars with the Europeans, the American Revolution and the Civil War is now fighting to preserve its language and culture by embracing modern technology.
There are 6,000 languages spoken in the world but linguists fear that 50% of them will become extinct within the next century. In the US, 175 Native American languages are spoken, but fewer than 20 are expected to survive the next 100 years.
The language of the Chickasaws, known as “Chikashshanompa”, is a 3,000-year-old living language that is categorised by Unesco as being “severely endangered”.
The last remaining monolingual speaker of this language, Emily Johnson Dickerson, 93, died in December. Now the tribe is scrambling to make sure that its language does not become lost.
Dwindling native speakers
The Chickasaw Nation consists of 57,000 people, including 38,000 who live in 13 counties in Oklahoma, a state designated as the Indian Territory which boasts rich oil and natural gas preserves.
"There were over 3,000 speakers of Chickasaw in the 1960s," Joshua Hinson, director of the Chickasaw Nation Language Department tells IBTimes UK.
"The last native speakers who learnt the language at home were born in the late 1940s. From that point on, with people leaving Oklahoma for other parts of the US, mandatory schooling and political pressures to be bilingual in English, the number of people dropped, and now, our youngest native speakers are in their 60s."
There are now only 65 native speakers of the Chickasaw language who are also fully bilingual in English, and only four to five confident conversational speakers who are under the age of 35.
Modern Chickasaw people in Oklahoma live in houses on land held in trust for the Chickasaw Nation by the Federal government.
They have been Christian since the Civil War, although religion co-exists with traditional native Chickasaw customs.
Some customs have died out, such as the native doctors and practice of native medicine, but others, like the role of the woman as a matriarch in the family and in government, have continued, and 60% of the community’s leaders are women.

Preservation of language is a cultural necessity!
Rev Sekou kneeled between protesters and police and prayed, then was thrown into a police vehicle with blood smears all inside of it.
What the slotting hell?
what stopping girl hate is about:
ending internalised misogyny and the prioritisation of men over each other
what stopping girl hate is not about:
expecting women of colour, disabled women and LGBTQA+ women to excuse racism, ableism, homophobia and transmisogyny simply because it’s coming from other women
NYPD Police Officer: “I Fried Another Ni**er”
lest we forget that the NYPD is scum
is anyone surprised???
Almost 52 days after shooting Mike Brown at least 6 times, Darren Wilson enlists police union attorney. On one hand, I find it incredible that he waited this long to engage a union attorney. On the other, I hope this means he now thinks he will be indicted. Maybe that’s why he didn’t do it before now.
98 more days until Grand Jury deadline.
Here are some of the things I talked about in this video:go all the way off
Honestly she’s amazing, like consistently amazing
