i found this series of stock images that are supposed to be of bullying but they just look really gay to me

If you take a young man and woman and they both tell a stranger that they work in the same restaurant, it’s very likely that they will assume that the woman is the waitress, and the young man a cook.

But I thought a woman’s place was in the kitchen? Not when she’s being paid for it. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize the implication of this. A woman’s place is one of servitude.

this fucking hit me like a fucking train

  • Sometimes I just want to go to the fucking cinema and see some fucking romcom movies with two women falling in love, or a fucking action movie with a same sex couple in it, and have it be a regular fucking ass blockbuster movie, with fucking mainstream actors in it, and it wouldn’t be all, indi, in its own fucking genre, I need to read fucking subtitles, it took me two fucking weeks to find a working stream of this movie online, typecast queer actors, low budget, everyone fucking dies in the end, story. but a fucking regular budget, happy, fucking cheesy ending where the guy gets the guy, and the girl gets the girl, and they fucking save the day and get to morodor, rescue the prime minister, and find the fucking castle in the sky, and then I finish up my overpriced popcorn at the most popular theatre in my city whilst watching the fucking michael bay, lucasfilm, pixar credits at the end, and we all have a fucking great time at the movies

Fetishizing ‘power’ in women characters – having them kicking ass and always being ready with a putdown - isn’t the same as writing them as human beings.

Best lesson from a Disney movie

This is an underrated movie

This is a grossly underrated movie.

Best lesson from my favorite Disney film. This film needs more love! 

yes, denny’s lost a $54 million law suit for being anti-black.

-

here’s another source.

ETA: i’m going to affix my second post here, because this has gone a little viral, without the best sources. bear in mind, my initial discussion of this topic began as a response to props for the denny’s tweet about coachella and its implied wrongs of cultural appropriation.

i did ask everyone to complete further research. thus far, i’m seeing reblogs, but no further comments. c’mon, now. like certain agencies and news outlets, i withheld pertinent information about this case, hoping you jovenes would go find it. no? seriously? why not.

okay. did you find the fact that the head of the DOJ’s civil right’s division, deval l. patrick, remarked at the time, that this was the largest and broadest settlement ever paid under federal public accommodation laws? those were federal laws—not state statutes—enacted over 70 years ago, now, to end segregation in restaurants and other public places serving the public.

so, what actually happened, to bring denny’s to the attention of the DOJ’s civil rights division (and: did you know the DOJ has a civil rights division, with various branches, including housing?). 

majority of the claims came from black customers. this included a black federal judge from houston, traveling with his wife, who was forced to wait nearly an hour—while white patrons were served, and white teens taunted the black couple with the word “n*****.” no one from the staff did a damned thing.

one of the first complaints came in 1991 from a group of 18 young black men, who were asked to pay before service, at a denny’s in san jose, california. the men complied—but they also filed a suit against denny’s.

in 1993 (some articles have the date wrong), uniformed members of president clinton’s u.s. secret service were refused service in Annapolis, by a white waitress, because they were black; meanwhile their white secret service counterparts were seated and served. the black agents filed a complaintand one denny’s corporate public relations offices obviously couldn’t ignore.

1997 saw the rabid beatings of 6 Asian American students from syracuse university. after the standard treatment of denny’s “wait while we serve the whites,” the students complained to the management and their server, so were forced to leave the restaurant by security called by the manager. the students stated a group of white men then emerged from the restaurant and attacked them while shouting racial slurs. several of the asian students were left unconscious

what denny’s paid was a class action lawsuit for racial discrimination. claims proven during that case were settled, by any person of color (called a “minority,” in the suit). the overwhelming majority of those who had proven claims were black customers. denny’s clearly had an overall agenda upholding white supremacy.

ironically (and sadly), after the $54.4 million settlement, the restaurant chain went all out to win back its percentage of people of color—especially its former 10% black customer base. their public relations department featured sherman hemsley and isabel sanford, in one television commercialFortune magazine selected denny’s as “best company for minorities” in 2001; Black Enterprise gave top space for the chain in their “best companies for diversity,” in 2006 and 2007. read more about the effects of denny’s “grand slam” advertising, by doing some research. seriously *s

now consider why denny’s has its public relations department sending out these bold "calling out" messages, that manage to "raise awareness" about cultural appropriation. even for some of us who are critical of the tweets, there’s the thought that, “it’s not a bad idea.” well, it worked, didn’t it? mm.

I said they was apologizing for not letting Black folks eat, lol.

there is a huge difference between writing a scenario for cheap emotional manipulation and writing a scenario necessary to further a character’s journey into becoming their fully realized self

the latter targets the character first, and then you. the former just targets you
