Do we have to do this again? Do we have to go through this same shit every single time a person of colour is cast as anyone… or indeed anything… previously depicted as white? Summer 2019, and Halle Bailey, was cast as Ariel in Disney’s live action remake of the Little Mermaid, a story about […]Read More Why the little mermaid must be white – by whiny racists.
Remember when I wrote about how exhausting this all is? Well this is exactly the sort of shit I was talking about. Here’s the deal, okay. The N-Word is off-fucking-limits. That’s a non-negotiable. You can’t have it. You can’t say it. You can’t sing it. You sure as shit can’t chant it. I. Don’t. Want. […]Read More Why are white people so obsessed with the N-Word?
While the utter shitshow that is Brexit continued into late March 2019, malfunctioning replicant PM, Theresa May, fresh out of fucks to give about the whole thing, sequestered herself and a group of 13 MPs away at her Chequers country retreat, to discuss support for Meaningful Vote III: Tokyo Drift. A day or so later, […]Read More Welcome to the UK(KK)
I feel like I’m just repeating myself. March, 2019. Amber Rudd, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions was being asked about online trolling and abuse of female polititians. She replied that it “definitely is worse if you’re a woman. And it’s worst of all if you’re a coloured woman. I know that Diane Abbott […]Read More The ‘clumsy language’ of racism.
I’ve heard a lot worse. Let’s just preface this post with the fact that I’ve heard a lot worse. But for fucking shit’s sake, Angela, what the fuck? If you’ve no idea what I’m talking about, Angela Smith was one of seven MPs to resign from the Labour Party over Brexit and anti-semitism in February, […]Read More Holy shit, Angela! Racism is never far beneath the surface.
In early 2019, David Lammy MP (who I have to say is quickly becoming a bit of a legend) posted this on Twitter. The article in The Guardian refers to a campaign (@56blackmen) aimed at changing perceptions of black men in hoodies. Man alive, I wish I hadn’t read the comments. Of course, there’s nothing […]Read More Never read the comments!
It must be really nice to be able to categorically state that white privilege doesn’t exist and for that to be the end of the discussion for you. The argument often goes that class and wealth are the great dividers, and that privilege is nothing to do with race. You’ll point to poor white people […]Read More White Privilege is hard to swallow – so take smaller bites and chew properly!
You guys, I’m tired. I’m tired of having to explain things. I’m tired of having to explain, in fucking 2019, why blacking up is racist. I’m tired of having to explain that yes, ‘White Chicks’ is different and no it isn’t racist, because blacking up carries with it intense historical significance associated with dehumanizing black […]Read More Why are we still talking about Blackface?
