Nina Simone would hate Zoe Saldana and Wonder Woman would probably throw gal gadot off a building I think it’s so crazy that they are playing them they literally believe in completely diff things

gedankenspaziergang: hi:) Could you explain why Zoe Saldana is problematic? thank you

angrywocunited:

Sure!

"Yeah. Morgan Freeman said it. And I was just told this when I was doing an interview: He’s not going to talk about racism. I’m not going to talk about it. Yeah, it’s an elephant. We all see it, we all know it, but I’m not going to carry it in my heart, because I want to be a person that embodies change. Not embodies war or battles or bitterness; I want to keep moving on."

We have a Black president right now, so why the f— would I sit down and talk about how hard it is for Black women in Hollywood when there’s a Black president in my country?” Zoe Saldana Ebony Magazine

  • And finally, this abomination:

Donning a blackface and a fake nose to portray Nina Simone, a dark skinned black woman who struggled immensely with her blackness throughout her entire life. This is a direct slap in the face to Simone’s legacy and dark skinned black women. If Saldana really cared about Simone (she doesn’t), understood her personal struggles (again, she doesn’t), she would have turned down the role and given it to an actress that is more suitable to play Simone (I nominate Adepero Oduye). She doesn’t realize the amount of privilege she has in Hollywood being a conventionally attractive, skinny, light skin black woman. What’s so irritating about this casting is at the end of the day Saldana can easily remove the dark skin, the wide nose, and Simone’s adversity but Nina Simone couldn’t do that.  -G

Anonymous: Please, please help me understand. That post about braces and disneyland that dealt with immigration/racism, I know very many people with the same opinion as that person (that many people of color in the us get many benefits that white people have to work very hard for and that it's really messed up etc etc) and I really want to know if things like that are/are not true, and why so many people do/don't a problem with it. Can you explain it to me?

……. Well yeah a lot of people actually would agree that poc in America get an unfair amount of government aid but that’s false and those people are racists so…
Most government aid is given to white people. That’s just literally facts. And no ones getting free braces native Americans do not get free braces I’m almost certain (from what Native American tumblr has told me and I would believe them).
Poc in America are scrutinized more for receiving money from the government because white Americans are generally racist haters that want to see us suffer and die if they aren’t satisfied with their lives that’s really all there is to statements like that pizzaforpresident boy said. And I think he’s Canadian so this hatred is global basically.
