If half of the stories that I’ve heard about Ra’s al Ghul are true, we will all pay.
anyone else noticing a trend here?
didn’t know ancient egyptians looked like mayo…
RHAMSES IM CHOKING LIKE THEY DIDNT SEE THE STATUES OR NOTHING
Ok but of course the servants and thieves are black ok i see yall
Brown Jesus from Palestine, what the fuck is this!
Tuya and Zipporah are Sub Saharan unarguable black. Like you Zipporah’s familial descendants are still living a pastoral life in the same place she was from, and they still look like her.
Queen Tuya is black, in fact her tomb was found after the front load of white supremacist archeologist raided Egypt, so surprisingly enough her features were kept in tact on all of her antiquities as was her full name which also described where she was from…modern day Ethopian/Chad/Sudan area.
No matter how much fake tanner, pretty pretty hair pieces, faux box braids Sigourney will look ridiculous.
So it’s real nice to know that every reoccurring woman of visible East African descent is non existent and every male of visible African decent is a poor criminal. Awesome, and super accurate.
Dear White People isn’t set for wide-release until October yet has received an incredibly polarized range of ratings on IMDb. I’m sure they all saw it at festivals and gave it a fair review based on the quality of the film.
BRAND NEW PIC…
excuse me does anyone have the paramedics on speedial as I think my heart just stopped….
misterreese dead dying wish I was thereeee
what a jerk. wearing sunglasses in side and shit. ughuhguhg.
….when it comes to a black woman having a potential relationship with the white male lead. Suddenly, there’s “too much going on” for a relationship, and the black woman doesn’t need to be seen as dependent on a man (which is such bullshit as she’s already independent and solitary to a fault).
But apparently, Katrina and Ichabod, as the primary romance (and secondary plot of the show) is perfectly acceptable. We’ve learned more about Katrina and Ichabod’s relationship than we’ve seen of Abbie’s past relationship with Luke. We’ve seen their first meeting, their confirmation of their love, peeks into their married life, and the birth of their child. ALL that is acceptable to see while the world’s going to shit in Sleepy Hollow, but there’s “no time” for Abbie and Ichabod (and I assume any other man, but I’m pretty sure they ONLY mean Ichabod). Now that Katrina’s out of purgatory, we’re going to see even more into their relationship dynamics (to the immense joy of a certain small part of the fandom).
But, Abbie/Nicole is supposed to create this icon of fictional woman that’s “not dependent” on a man and doesn’t cry over a man. She’s supposed to be so self-assured and singular, that ANY type of relationship (especially one with Ichabod) would make her dependent on him. It doesn’t matter that she’s already thoroughly independent and alone. It doesn’t matter that, given a chance to rekindle a relationship with Luke, the writers squashed that in less than 15 minutes (thanks, Andy!).
I just think all this is such bullshit. I want Abbie loved and kicking ass all the same time. I don’t care about some white woman from 20 years ago. White actresses get those roles where they’re badass AND have love interests all at the same time. No one is stating how it would be “great” to have these white actresses create the “great” characters that aren’t dependent on men or some shit. Every single white woman on that Women Who Kick Ass panel have a love interest or potential love interest in their current role.
Tatiana Maslany: every single clone she plays has a relationship and/or shown to be sexual/intimate with their partner. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
Katey Sagal: I don’t watch the show, but I know the lead character is her son, and there’s only been one immaculate conception. She’s also had TWO husbands.
Sarah Paulsen: Her character had a husband/boyfriend she was trying to get pregnant by. He turned out the be a turd, but she still got to have a relationship
Natalie Dormer: In Game of Thrones, she was married to Renly, Joffrey, and soon to be wed to Tommen. She flirted with Sansa. All in a good days work.
Maisie Williams: Granted she’s a kid, but that didn’t stop her from professing her love for Gendry (I’ll be your family [sic]), did it?
All these women are viewed as badass, all the while having intimate relationships. Apparently, black women aren’t capable of doing the same, or some shit.
