 When Aaliyah and I worked together on Romeo Must Die it was her first movie. She was charming, talented and acting came very naturally to her. We worked together for about four months and she had a great energy. She enjoyed the martial art sequences and due to her previous dancing ability was able to learn movements very quickly. Cory Yuen and I both agreed that with some training she could be a very good action star. We would talk to each other about different story ideas and hoped that we would be able to work again in the future. At that time it was our mutual desire to work together again. On the set she was nice to everyone, no matter who they were, and the whole crew loved her.
 I was in China when I heard about her death. Sad? Shocked? Surprised? Words can not express the emotions. She had posessed an emormous amount of potential. I sat and prayed with two friends for over two hours in the hopes that she would find herself in a better place than she had left.
 Of course, I was depressed for a little while afterwards, because even though it was over two years since we worked together, I can remember it as if it was just yesterday.

99% of media portrayals of adopted kids

  • scenario 1: no problems ever! graciously rescued from a broken home/impoverished or war-torn country! unquestioningly grateful and indebted to their adoptive family! has nothing but 100% good things to say about being adopted, all the time!
  • scenario 2: absolutely miserable. aggressively resentful of adopted family and of their adoption. will petulantly respond to even the most gentle of requests with proclamations of "you're not my real family!" usually a rebel/delinquent/generally maladjusted and sometimes even violent.
  • The other 1%? Aliens. Seriously.

"Christ the Redeemer, Blessed, John Evangelist, The Lord Our Savior, Trinity."

The names of churches on your block? Nope. Just the names of slave ships that made over 40,000 trips back and forth across the Atlantic during the Trans Atlantic slave trade. The LARGEST FORCED MIGRATION IN HUMAN HISTORY. (via howtobeterrell)

i thought this was a joke or a mistake. and then i looked it up. and it’s not. and WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL?

When an oppressor says “we’re not all like that” it just means “I know some of us are like that but I’m going to spend my time policing your views instead.”

Brandx’s patience with the ignorant white tears on their posts is as awe-inspiring as the constant love and support they shower on the transracial community.  Truly heroic.

shining-latios asked:

I'm so disgusted by the disproportionate amount of people whining in the notes on your post about the Haitian boy who was given up about "not all white people". They had the god damn nerve to look at the source material and ONLY choose to cherrypick the people going "white people are awful", yell at them because their precious egos were hurt, and ignore the damn point of the post entirely. I am so incredibly disgusted.

Heh. The latest accusation is that I’m “trying to cause trouble" with my coverage of adopted child trafficking that (unlike that “Good Housekeeping” trash mag) isn’t some abuse apologist defense of a racist American who has a history of hurting animals.

White feelings > the lives of orphaned children of color
Must be a day that ends in ‘y’.

My friend Maggie, at the young age of 34, just found out she has a twin, and now it’s up to all of us to help her find them!
I love a mystery!
