This is a racist stereotype, and it’s unacceptable. Stereotypes that fetishize different ethnicities and races are dehumanizing.
Can you please stop fetishizing WOC? Thnx.
(although most famous models ect from Brazil are white due to Eurobullshit beauty standards)
THANK YOU. Giselle Bundchen is NOT a typical “Brazilian.” She is the descendant of Europeans who settled in Brazil.
Today it is fashionable to talk about the poor. Unfortunately it is not fashionable to talk with them.
A Muslim cleric has condemned to death Amina Tyler, a young 19 year old Tunisian who published a picture of herself topless, Amina posted on her Facebook account a picture with the phrase: “My body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honor.” She is a member of the group Femen, a feminist movement emerged in Ukraine in 2008 performing their topless protests to draw attention. The unusual protest sparked rejected her own family, which is considered a “insulting the modesty of a woman” and Islam.
“This young woman according to Islamic law deserves to between 80 and 100 lashes, but she did much more than that so she deserves to be stoned to death,” the religious Tunisian daily said “Assabah News” .
Amina represents us.
We the undersigned unequivocally defend Amina, and demand that her life and liberty are protected and that those who have threatened her will be immediately prosecuted.

menial asked: Thanks, that's really sweet of you, and please, don't be concerned; I probably take way better care of myself than this blog lets on.

Thanks! And yup, I’m 19. And ok! Just making sure. :)
Ugh Hal Jordan is white! So that’s not whitewashing.
Hal Jordan is white, but the Green Lantern who is most familiar to the mass audiences that movies are supposedly trying to capture is John Stewart, pictured on the left.
Yeah. John Stewart has been the Green Lantern in pretty much every DCAU production. In making Hal the star of the movie, they pretty much did exactly what John has complained of in the comics - everyone deeming him the “Black one” and Hal the default GL.
Choosing Hal over John (and not putting him in a history montage or cameo) was very deliberate, and goes beyond wanting to do an origins story.
Whitewashing isn’t limited to making characters white, but also includes choosing whose stories get to be told.
Can I get an AMEN on this.
Because we’re talking about comics.
Comics with multiverses and multiple iterations of many of their flagship characters.
So…y’know “Well, he’s the white GL” doesn’t actually fly.
