DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

keeptemp0-deactivated20140217 asked: You see, the problem is that when you use the term “white people”, you are inadvertently being racist. You can’t categorize us like that. If you really wanted to claim yourself as an anti-racist, you have to rid yourself of this condition that you have been told to believe and realize, we are all human. You can’t try to mediate a war and abolish racism if you are in fact a facet of said racism. So, go belly flop on a beehive you one sided prick.
When I use the term “White people”, this is what I’m doing:
- Addressing you
When I use the term “White people”, this is what I’m not doing:
- Ripping you from your homeland
- Sailing you across an ocean like cargo
- Selling you off as slaves
- Forcing you to follow a bullshit religion
- Feeding you pig slop
- Beating you because I feel like it
- Raping your daughter
- Raping your mother
- Raping your sister
- Mutilating your body when you try to run away
- Passing laws that declare you to be 3/5 of a human being
- Preventing you from voting
- Firebombing your home
- Gathering a mob to lynch you in the streets with legal impunity
- Keeping you in the ghetto
- Chasing you with dogs
- Preventing you from going to certain schools
- Murdering your leaders who speak out against the tyranny of my people
- Encouraging my police officers to target you, and run you through our prisons like clockwork
- Profile you, whether you’re wearing a suit and tie, or baggy jeans and a hoodie
- Shooting you because I was following you and you got scared and attacked me
Because that would be racist.
Mulan loved my Mulan pen!
She said, “I love things that have my face on it.”
Wow, Mulan, conceited much ;). Seems like you may have been spending some time with Gaston!
SHOOTS LIKE MULAN
WEARS MEN’S SUITS LIKE MULAN!
THINKS FAST AND KICKS ASS ON A ROOF LIKE MULAN
MULAN: “I USE AVALANCHES IN ALL OF MY BATTLE SCHEMIIIING!”
NOT QUITE A GUY, THAT MULAN!
WHEN I WAS A GIRL I DRANK 3 CUPS OF TEA
EVERY MORNING TO HELP ME GROW STRONG
NOW I’VE GROWN UP I DRINK FIVE CUPS OF TEA
AND I DEFEATED THE KING OF THE HUUUUUUUNS
This is the best thing ever.
I needed this.
Kate MacDowell Amazing Porcelain Sculptures
Through her porcelain sculptures, artist Kate MacDowell explores our romantic notions towards the environment alongside the human propensity for destruction. Her pieces are responses to the damage we inflict upon our habitats including climate change, genetic modification of organisms, and pollution. Human figures and animals act as symbols of the natural world, humorously and sometimes disturbingly transformed into new creatures that share qualities across the boundary of species. Hand crafted and exceptionally detailed, her work is a traditional medium that takes on contemporary significance in an age of ecological degradation.
Kate MacDowell and her ghostly sculptures are beautiful and somewhat haunting examinations of the human relationship with nature. Each piece is molded by hand and then hollowed. Choosing porcelain for its pallor, luminosity, and ability to show texture, it also allows her to represent “fragility of natural forms in a dying ecosystem, while paradoxically, being a material that can last for thousands of years and is historically associated with high status and value.”
↳ F → feminism & representation
"I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place, and crash through the glass ceiling. And a lot of them did that believing that they had to trade on their femininity and that they had to be a man and tap into whatever they believed was a masculine trait to hang in the boys’ room, to get the "keys to the kingdom" as it were. And what’s beautiful about Jessica Pearson is that she is the next level to that when, really, feminism is about being all that you are and not having to trade one thing for another on your way up, or apologize." - Gina Torres (about her character Jessica Pearson, on Suits)
