I wonder if this is true? Makes me wonder.
wait, so is she saying young white people pretend they’re black or whatever then grow up and turn white again?
What she means is white people have the ability to exploit the “desirable” traits of black culture. They can twerk, wear gold chains, appropriate black culture basically. BUT at the end of the they can go back to having all the advantages of being white.
Example: Marky Mark- AKA Mark Wahlberg
and they can be ‘redeemed’ as that was just their wild/rebellious phase. now they’ve ‘grown up’ and ‘matured’
1. If your significant other claims to, or is known to “have a thing” for men/women of your race.
This is called fetishism, which generally consists of sexual/physical attraction based on stereotypes. For example: the “exotic” Asian/African women…
Anonymous said: why isn't it a problem when m.i.a raps? why is it ok to have chicano rap/asian rap/ etc? But as soon as white people try it you all lose your shit?
That’s so cute and simplistic. Did you work on this question all week or…? No one cares when white people try to rap. We care when they don’t represent their authentic selves or are plain untalented. We don’t care that Eminem is white. He’s not out her performing sonic blackface, despite being from the Detroit Metro Area. Yelawolf sounds like a southern rapper because… he’s a southern rapper. Homeboy is from Alabama. His voice is his. Hell, we didn’t even care about Bubba Sparxxx. Homeboy is from Georgia. Plus, Ms. New Booty is still a bop, so.. *shrugs*
Iggy literally sounds like something out of Malibu’s Most Wanted. Protip: that movie was not a documentary. This sheila is claiming she’s in the “murda bidness”. Homegirl grew up in Mulllumbimby, New South Wales, on a fucking farm. What the fuck was she murdering? Chickens? The hopes and dreams of her parents? What? You tell me. But she is flagrantly being dishonest and unauthentic. She sounds like all the mediocre parts of some of the premiere lady rappers throughout the years. She ain’t as cool in her delivery as Da Brat. She ain’t as raw and bold as Foxy or Trina. She ain’t as cute or skilled as Charli Baltimore. Iggy is what happens when generally mediocre white girls think they deserve to win and people who don’t know better let them.
edit: Ricardo Montalban, the actor who originally portrayed Khan, is Mexican, yes. The character, however, is Asian (specifically Sikh). I apologize for not making the actor/character difference clear, and I do agree it was my bad for putting Khan in this post, since POC are not interchangeable. I wanted to show how a TV show in the 60’s cast a POC for a POC, while a Hollywood blockbuster made in 2013 cast a white actor for a POC. Apologies for not explaining the Khan issue further.
Give your money to Home instead.
I almost agree 100% but from what I have heard there actually is a POC in “The Snow Queen” that was a vital part to the original story and was NO where to be found in Frozen. But it is funny how the cast in “Frozen” and “Tangled” could have had a diverse cast because they’re both set in fictional lands! And the lands they are based off of have PoC in them now and had them then… But white is the norm so…. 😔
