"

But then, the truth was never really the point. Thin women don’t tell their fat friends ‘You’re not fat’ because they’re confused about the dictionary definition of the word, or their eyes are broken, or they were raised on planets where size 24 is the average for women. They don’t say it because it’s the truth. They say it because fat does not mean just fat in this culture. It can also mean any or all of the following:

Ugly
Unhealthy
Smelly
Lazy
Ignorant
Undisciplined
Unlovable
Burdensome
Embarrassing
Unfashionable
Mean
Angry
Socially inept
Just plain icky

So when they say ‘You’re not fat,’ what they really mean is ‘You’re not a dozen nasty things I associate with the word fat.’ The size of your body is not what’s in question; a tape measure or a mirror could solve that dispute. What’s in question is your goodness, your lovability, your intelligence, your kindness, your attractiveness. And your friends, not surprisingly, are inclined to believe you get high marks in all those categories. Ergo, you couldn’t possibly be fat.

"Indeed, all the producers, writers, and the director of the James Brown movie are white. No black people were hired until a few weeks before the cameras started rolling, the actors. In fact, several of the people involved in this whitewash are British. The Brits have a fetish for black projects."

…….There are so many other terrible facts about the movie in the article but this…my GOd

A morning show actually introduced a piece about the movie with “He had moves like Jagger before Jagger” I mean… really?

actsononchalant said: I feel like Kpop apologists don't actually understand Korean culture nor do they want to because it's an ugly truth. As a Korean, I can tell you that racism is an everyday occurrence in the society. The hatred, fear, and misunderstanding are pointed towards pretty much any race that has darker skin than their own. Tanner Korean members are constantly singled out for jokes equating them to images of bloated-belly African children or field-working South Asians. (1/2)

owning-my-truth:

To say that Kpop artists aren’t doing these racist things on purpose is complete bullshit. Kpop has become a world movement. Many Kpop groups feature members from different nations and cultures. There is no excuse for them to continue to be ignorant and hateful. If anything, Kpop should be striving to set an example for other Koreans but they’re not. 

Yes!!!

  • 1: Did he rape her?
  • 2: Yes, but she was drunk and passed out.
  • 1: That's not what I asked. Did he rape her?
  • 2: Yes, but she was wearin-
  • 1: I didn't ask what she was wearing. Did he rape her?
  • 2: Yes, but-
  • 1: I didn't ask anything else. It's just a simple yes or no answer. Did he rape her?
  • 2: Yes.
  • 3: Yes, he raped her.
  • Rape is rape is rape, no matter the context.
