Swapping his medieval attire for some ancient robes? Yes please!

NO PLEASE

no, how about just NO, NOW.

this just hurt me in so many melanated places and third eye gland nerves from floating in a sea of whitewashing bullshit.

THE FUCK YOU SAY?

So let me get this fucking straight.

Blond haired white male is totally fucking okay to play HORUS, a fucking GOD OF KEMET, WHICH LITERALLY MEANS ‘THE BLACK LAND’

But we still can’t get people of color to play anything other than fucking slaves and maids?

We can’t even fucking play OUR OWN GODS?

All of y’all bitches who complained about Heimdall being Black better not ever say anything ever again.  All of y’all bitches who complain about possible Black people playing a white character better not say shit.

Daaaaaamn. Jules has been talking about black divinity but they’re trying to come for that too. 

*yeezus shrug*

Black folks can’t even be present in fantasy inspired by European religions, folklore and mythology without it being called inaccurate or weird and black folks can’t be the protagonists in fantasy stories based on their own religions, folklore and mythologies. White fantasy writers don’t see us in their re-imagined pasts, white sci-fi writers don’t see us in their far-flung futures. They wish we didn’t exist.

I’m slightly baffled by people saying mcu!Pepper is a strong female character.

Yes, she has a strong personality and she’s brave and kind, just like her comic counterpart, but the movies then just give up on her. She has no life, no hobbies not related to Tony. We never see…

OP is clearly a big fan of Pepper and only concerned about her characterization, as evidenced by the complete lack of anything Pepper related on their blog. Except this post. Trashing her. Yup.

And of course they love the version of Pepper that’s not with Tony. Even though she was mostly unhappy in a pretty miserable relationship with a guy who was often controlling, possesive and jealous. But that was definitely a better situation for Stony Pepper.

The Pepper concern-trolling is so transparent. Like, honestly, if you can’t fathom that Pepper has a life outside of Tony that says more about your own limited interpretation of this character than anything the movie implies. Unless you really honestly think that in between running an international company, Pepper sits around twiddling her thumbs waiting for Tony to come home. And if that’s really what you think then I’m sorry that you had to watch whatever awful movie you got that idea from. Because you definitely weren’t watching Iron Man.

Don’t you fucking start in on me, don’t you DARE tell me what I like and think you biased little shit. What, just because I don’t reblog stuff means I don’t like it? I like football, but that’s not on my fucking blog now is it. And I was trashing her? What a goddamn joke. I was talking about how she is shown in the movies and what little is given about herself. I brought up her marriage to Happy as something involving herself and not Tony, I never fucking said it was a good thing or preferable to her being with Tony, but apparently you cant see that because you’re too busy being rude to another fucking human being with feelings.

You called Pepper an accessory. You literally make one post about her to complain about something that applies to every other character in the MCU universe that is not the star of their own movie and can even apply to some that are the stars of their own movies.

I mean, really. What can you say about Rhodey and his hobbies and what he likes, besides the fact that he’s in the Air Force and has known Tony for a long time? What about Happy, besides the fact that he’s Tony’s friend and Pepper’s bodyguard? Or Natasha, or Clint, or Fury or Betty or Peggy or Jane or Coulson or Darcy or anyone else? Literally what we know about most characters is what they do for a living, one or two personality traits that make them good at that job and their relationship to the main white dude.

Is it perfect? Hell no. Would I like to know more about all these characters? Duh. But to act like that is uniquely a “MCU Pepper” problem instead of a “Not-A-Leading-Character-In-A-Two-Hour-Movie” problem and to single her out comes across as trashing her. Especially after IM3 where we actually get to SEE her doing her own thing, running her company and being with other people talking about things that aren’t Tony, instead of just having it mentioned that she has a life outside him. Which it is. In every single movie, including The Avengers, and she was only in that for like half a minute.

Also marrying Happy in the comics does not inherently make her a stronger character just because it’s something she did that has nothing to do with Tony. At one point she leaves her job so she can focus on her marriage with Happy and gets pushed to the background. That’s not better or empowering.

becausechocolatethatswhy:

so i’ve seen a lot of people reblogging the episode of that’s so raven about racism in retail but I think Smart Guy handled this better. 

The first picture is of the scene where Yvette and her friend Nina are hired by the store manager. The manager is racist and encourages employees to follow black customers around as a ‘loss prevention strategy’. Despite her actions clearly being racist the store manager later tells Yvette “I can’t be racist I hired you didn’t I?”. Yvette tries to prove to the manager that she is indeed racist. In the second picture she sets up a camera and in the last she shows the manager the video of her white friend clearly shoplifting very obviously who wasn’t noticed because the manager was busy following around her other friend a black male. This was the conversation that resulted 

Store Manager: what are you trying to show me that your friend is a good theif

Yvette: you’re missing the point, you were so busy following the black customer you didn’t see what was really going on

Store Manager: which proves what

Yvette: all races shoplift but if you only follow black customers that’s all you’re ever going to catch

Yvette: I have 50 hrs of tape here

Store Manager: do you have 19 years of tapes, because that’s how long i’ve been in retail and that’s where I get my information

Yvette: but wait a minute the retail industry itself says that the average shoplifter is a white middle aged woman not unlike yourself. you are stripping people of their dignity because of their skin colour and it’s wrong

Store Manager: Yvette i’m sorry you feel this way and i’d understand if you chose not to work here anymore

I liked this episode because it showed just how no matter how much evidence you show someone with a racist mindset will mostly just continue to defend their actions because in their minds they aren’t racist they’re right.  

This show did something by showing just how racists can act like their behaviour is the most reasonable thing in the world and that’s what hit me hardest and something I think needs to be exposed. People need to understand that consciously hating all black people isn’t the only way to be racist.

in the raven episode the big reveal is that the manager admits that she doesn’t hire black people but in reality thats not something they admit. But you’ll still see it in their actions and they’ll forever justify themselves and argue until their last breath that they aren’t racist.

AU: the avengers fandom is not racist and misogynistic and is unwilling to fridge female and POC characters in fic just so two cis white dudes can get it on.
