Wow, this is quite possibly the single most infuriating, bigoted and biased post I’ve ever seen on this fucking website.
Evidence that ~tumblrizing~ something doesn’t automatically make it right.
This is hilariously ignorant. I bet the person who made it thought they were being so cute and trendy when they made it, too. Fuck outta here with this bullshit.
And fuck us black queers straight to hell, right? Fuck that noise.
The gay rights movement isn’t the same as the black civil rights movement, but they are both movements to attempt to bring some semblance of equality to marginalized, disenfranchised folks.
Also, newsflash: not all black people are Christians.
But what’s really funny is when u don’t have time to post a developed thought (assuming you have one) but have all the time in the world to respond to “pressed” individuals in regards to reactions to that (baiting, insulting ass) post.
When people talk shit about Johnny Depp as Tonto;
- He has native American relatives. His great-grand mother was either a Cherokee or a Creek Indian.
- Of course he’s too odd to be an actual native American, it’s stated in the goddamn movie that he’s a nutcase, by his own clan. It’s a part of his goddamn character.
- Yeah, they could’ve picked an actual native American for the role, but honestly - did you see the movie yet? He was basically created for the role. He did a magnificent job as Tonto.
Now I know this will cause a shit-storm but I’m sorry, I’m not hearing crap about white-washing or him being a bad indian. I mean, are we gonna talk about what happened to Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter series? How come that didn’t raise a shit-storm? She was black until she was important and was just magically turned white. At least they tried with Johnny, with make-up and what have you.
And as mentioned, he is a bad indian on purpose. No, I’m not a huge Depp fan either and was actually rather disappointed he was picked as Tonto (not to mention the fact that they just had to shove Helen Bonham Carter into the movie as well Jesus fucking Christ), but he did a magnificent job at it nonetheless. Case closed.
He MAY have ONE native relative.
This is the one representation we’ve had in years and he’s being a “Bad Indian” on purpose.
It’s a disgrace.
Actually, among the established fandom that Lavender Brown shit was a HUGE debacle and still is. All of this, ALL OF IT, is whitewashing. Johnny Depp clearly identifies as a white man, regardless of his genetic make-up, and despite whatever ancestry he might have he still passes as white. When a white or passing person is cast as a person of color and then ‘darkened up’ or ‘painted’ to look more like (white Western and dilluted) ideals of a culture, that is WHITEWASHING AND RACIST AS FUCK. There are POC aching to be included in their own narratives… and it’s 2013 and this shit keeps happening? And we’re supposed to be fucking okay with that?! REALLY?!
There are people who still believe Obama is some sort of “covert Muslim”… 1.) as if being Muslim makes you intrinsically a bad person and 2.) because a brown/black person with a “funny name” couldn’t possibly be “Krishchun” like them. SMH
It makes me angry that I have to do this, but I’m going to do it anyway. Last week at Denver Comic Con, I went to a panel on women and body image in comics that I had very high hopes for. It was modded by the same woman who’d modded the very excellent Geek Girl panel earlier that day, and had two of the same panelists, but it was absolutely ruined by the actions of one man. I forgot his name because, quite honestly, I started calling him Douchey McFuckface about two minutes into the panel, but I got it from the mod through Twitter. It’s Andrew Mark of Legacy Action Comics, and his Twitter can be found here at https://twitter.com/LegacyAC. I would not normally do this, but this man, over the course of the panel:
*Asked the audience who thought women in comics were objectified, and when the entire audience raised their hands, said “Are you fucking stupid?”
*Justified the hypersexualized portrayal of women in comic books with “Artists just draw what writers give them, it’s the writer’s fault”
*Cut off a professor of media studies in mid-sentence when she tried to point out that yes, there is a connection between media and body image
*Insisted that men and women were equally objectified in comics because Superman has underwear on the outside of his costume
*Interrupted an audience member who was asking a question to talk about how “fucking hilarious” the Hawkeye Initiative is after it was explained by another audience member
*Browsed on his phone during the panel, ignoring audience questions entirely
*When I tried to explain the difference between attraction and objectification, responded by saying inequalities in objectification were clearly women’s fault, because women need to objectify men more
*Glared at and refused to answer an audience member after he tried to defend not drawing muscles on women by saying “we don’t have time for that” and she quite reasonably asked why, then, he had time to draw muscles on men
*Asked the audience if they “know comics aren’t real, right?”
*And, as a capper, used the phrase “twinks” as a homophobic slur at the end of the panel
I have probably been to forty panels at five different cons now, and I have never witnessed a panelist being so actively cruel, rude, and downright unprofessional during a panel. It’s sad because Legacy Action Comics is the kind of small local venture I would normally like to support, but given his behavior, I want everyone to know exactly how unprofessional and misogynistic this man is. At the panel, they openly chastised the audience and essentially told them that the continuing portrayal of skimpily clothed women in comics was their fault, because they “didn’t do anything about it” and “money talks.” Well, I’m doing something about it, and I hope money does talk. If anyone has bought/heard of Legacy Action comics, please don’t buy from them any more-I know I don’t want my money going to support someone who thinks these behaviors and attitudes are acceptable, and I hope you don’t want yours going their either. It’s sad because Legacy Action Comics is, by all appearances, the kind of small, local business I would normally go out of my way to support, but through his boorish and misogynistic behavior, Andrew Mark absolutely shot that in the foot.
I will probably be posting some more of the arguments I heard at this panel, and dissecting their fallaciousness, later, but for now I just wanted to get this out there and let people know that this kind of behavior is not acceptable and (hopefully) will not be tolerated by the geek community.
Who gone stop me?
ha! I don’t know why this made me laugh. She lookin right into those peep holes like WHAT?!
WHO GON CHECK ME BOO?
GET EM GIRL!!!!! She ain’t ever scared! Look they asses right in the eyes!
Do something, I DARE YOU!
Those fuckers in hoods are COWARDS, not even the scum of the earth would want to be them.
They are NOTHING.
In which the KKK thought they were about that life and were proven wrong.
YES! GIVING ME EVERYTHING AND MORE!
Oh Jezebel comments. (click the link and watch the video if you haven’t seen enough white dudes in war bonnets today)
Saw (and combated) this shit on Facebook proceeding the events in Boston. On a purportedly progressive page no less.
Okay I am posting this just because I want to save it and keep it for future reference. There is nothing in here that hasn’t been said before. Please print this out and put it on your damn fridge or in your first aid kits along with a set of pliers to pull your own damn teeth out when you can’t handle saying the same shit 20 times a day to grown white people.
White folks like to do heinous shit and blame it on mysterious generic black men and women. This isn’t just a dated thing from some long ass time ago, this is a current and normalized trend and here are just some of the biggest stories I could find.
Okay, let’s look at some examples of white people doing shady insane shit and blaming generic black men and women.
okay? Remember Bethany Sorro?
Bethany Sorro claimed a black woman threw acid on her face. Turned out to be a hoax - there was no black woman attacker, she did it to herself.
How about Bryan Douglas Wells, the pizza-delivery man turned bank robber?
He told a bank that three black men had tied a bomb under his neck in order to rob a bank. Turns out he and his white friends were full of shit, but that didn’t stop them from accidentally detonating the bomb and killing him in the process.
Or hey, how bout Susan Smith?
The white woman who murdered her own children and then claimed a black man had done it? Huh, sounds familiar. Turns out she didn’t really like her own damn kids.
Or Charles Stuart who killed his own wife n kids and then claimed a generic young black man had enacted this horrific tragedy on his whole damn family?
He only got caught because his brother admitted to helping him kill his wife n kids, and up until then the police had booked a slough of young black male suspects in hopes of pinning this shit on someone.
or Ashley Todd,
who, in the midst of the 2008 US presidential election, claimed a black Obama supporter had attacked her in a politically-motivated “mugging.” Turns out, she was full of shit.
or Philidelphia Police Sgt. Robert Ralston, who claimed a black man shot him in the foot?
But actually he admitted to shooting himself in the foot, and had to reason when questioned why.
Or how about, Conrad Zdzierak, this white man from Ohio who robbed banks:
dressed in this black mask:
so that he would look like a black dude:
and so that, he would hope, a black man would be arrested and charged in his place?
So, can I just say, I and any other folks of color who ain’t got no fucking time for you and your white tears have good cause. I’ll reserve my damn judgement for when yall aint consistently full of shit.
Okay. If you know more of these stories please add them and feel free to edit this post. I came back and added a few based on stories I simply had not noticed.
Thank you, this has been a post.
I hate the Bethany Storro one for so many reasons the amount of shit I saw the web from everyone saying how jealous Black women are of white women and when I say everyone I mean everyone including Black men. This one guy made a video on youtube and he took it down when it was revealed she was lying.
Anyway I have a few more Phantom Negro cases to add
The suburban mom arrested at Disney World after calling in a hoax kidnapping of her daughter nearly three years ago was sentenced to 100 months in jail after she was convicted of stealing more than $1million from her boss and a relative. But it wasn’t long before she was found and arrested at the Florida theme park.Bonnie Sweeten triggered a nationwide search in 2009 after calling 911 to say she and her nine-year-old daughter had been and abducted near Philadelphia by two black men and was calling 911 from the trunk of a black Cadillac when she actually was in a airport terminal buying southbound tickets to Florida
Told the police that he had driven from Ontario to Chicago to purchase tickets for he and his wife to attend Oprah’s farewell show. The day before the taping of the show he had been mugged by two men “one African=American and one Hispanic”he told them and the stole his tickets.
The police soon found out that he was lying and there he never had any tickets he was too much of a punk bitch to tell his wife the truth so he made up the mugging in hopes he would be reimbursed.
17-year-old man stabbed his friend in the neck as she was sleeping. The girl, 17-year-old Jasmyn Tully of Tukwila, WA, was sleeping when her friend allegedly felt the “urge to hurt someone” according to a Tukwila detective. He tried to strangle her as she was sleeping, and when she put up a fight, he proceeded to stab her in the neck. While the young man later claimed he was high at the time and had spent a majority of the day on drugs, he initially tried to use the “blame the black man” excuse to no avail. His uncle told KOMO News the following:

NEW YORK-Mary Turcotte, a white 26-year old Nun from the Apostles of Infinite Love in Brooklyn has admitted that she lied about being raped by a Black man in the snow to cover up for a consensual sexual encounter she had at with a bodega worker. The New York Daily News reports:
After a police search for a hulking black man was launched, the 26-year-old white woman from the Apostles of Infinite Love convent in East Flatbush recanted, the sources said.
When a penitent Turcotte recanted, her excuse was that she needed a story to cover up a real sexual encounter: bedding a shop worker she sneaked into the convent through the back door, sources said.
Oh and non Black people of colour
Kashif Parvaiz admitted to orchestrating the killing of his wife, Nazish Noorani, with his mistress, Antoinette Stephen.
Noorani and Parvaiz were both shot in the Boonton, New Jersey but police began to suspect he was involved after they discovered flaws in his story. Parvais’s original story had police suspicious of a hate crime after he claimed three Black men shot him and his wife while yelling “terrorists.”
The Bend Bulletin reports:
Parvaiz, according to prosecutors, initially described a trio of attackers: one white, one black and one whose race he said he could not determine. He later changed his story, describing all three as black, before finally admitting to setting up the shooting, according to his arrest affidavit.
“Kelly Kelly and Stacy Keibler and are the most fucking annoying divas of all time. they’re sluts, seriously. THEY SHOULD NEVER EVEN BE CALLED DIVAS, ugh they’re totally are sluts.”
Please politely shut the fuck up.
I hate Kelly Kelly as a character and Stacy never did anything for me either, but this is some bullshit. Their sex lives are none of your fucking business and have nothing to do with them as entertainers, wrestlers, or even people.
So, the next time you try to slut-shame someone with your ol’ ignorant illiterate monkey ass, please think how irrelevant your opinion on these subjects really is.
Barbie Blank can’t wrestle for shit and Stacy Keibler never learned anything beyond hair pulling. If you want to hate on them, hate on them for that.
