Younger gentrifiers love to make being poor some kind of trendy lifestyle of choice and romanticize the fuck out of it while actively and knowingly shitting on the people their stealing resources, homes, and livelihoods from. 

Hipster culture in a nutshell

after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.


the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.

Scarlett Johansson stars in the sci-fi film Lucy, a story about a white woman in Taiwan for some reason who suffers medical violence from savage Asians and is only important because of the research of a professor of color. 

“A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.”
"Lucy is set in a world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupt cops. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, changing her into a superhuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts."

Wow fuck you

oh my god this makes me so mad I can’t

in the trailer there’s a scene where she asks a taiwanese man if he speaks english and when he says no she literally kills him on the spot. but ~girl power~, right? it’s disgusting

Yay…justification for linguistic imperialism…

So just imagine this flipped: a drug addled foreigner with guns shoots anyone who can’t speak their language and holds doctors hostage.
…
But she’s the hero.  Oh, ok.

In which director Luc Besson just devolves even further into an Orientalist (Kiss of the Dragon, The Transporter) piece of garbage.

"You’re drunk in a bathtub
with a red cup full of Birthday Cake flavored vodka
wearing a headdress
made of neon Dollar Store chicken feathers.
You’re half naked in a grassy field
with drugstore lipstick smeared under your eyes
dropping acid
and wearing moccasins from Urban Outfitters.
You can’t wait for Coachella
so you can finally smoke a peace pipe in a tepee
and find your Spirit Animal.
You think Native American culture is so beautiful
and clumsily show it with your
hashtags on tumblr and Instagram.
But when actual Indigenous people tell you that
Gypsy, Squaw and Red Injun are all racist slurs
Headdresses are sacred
and war paint on your white face is insulting
You say
“I’m just appreciating your beautiful culture!
I’m 1/16th Cherokee.”
Ignoring the fact that running around
naked in the woods on shrooms
will not connect you with any tribe
and that your great great great great grandmother
along with the rest of the Cherokee people
never wore headdresses."

That idea that embracing your “Native American roots” by either wearing a fake indian headdress or stereotypical and often ignorant facial paint - says more about your “native roots”, meaning you don’t have any!

Hi my great grandmother was half Cherokee and I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t mind people wearing what they want. You shouldn’t have to justify your dress with ethnicity. Why is race still even an issue >_

Right on time

"I reject the idea that we “need” white racial satire. That it’s helping us somehow. That it’s so powerful a tool against oppression that without it we can never end racism. That POC should be grateful for it, because these white people making “ching chong” jokes, in the case of Colbert, and jokes about black men’s penises, in the case of Chelsea Handler, are on our side and somehow making our lives better with their humor. That’s some especially convoluted white savior nonsense. And really, if the white savior narrative had any validity at all (which it doesn’t), it wouldn’t have it in the form of Chelsea Handler, ok?

Consider for a moment, folks, that The Colbert Report isn’t the best we can hope for. That it isn’t the best we can do. That we don’t need it. And that it’s white supremacy (with a heaping helping of patriarchy and male privilege) that tries to convince us otherwise, that tells us that anything white people do to us is okay, as long as they say they’re helping."

White liberals and conservatives entertain themselves with the notion that they are polar opposites and that the whole wide world is contained in their razor thin divide. 

Here’s a quiz:  Which of you, when racist, says you were only joking?

Mar 29 '14
""Ethnic" whites are still white. White Jews are still white. So are white muslims. White privilege is white privilege is white privilege. You can experience anti-Semitism or xenophobia or religious persecution and still be white. Remember intersectionality?
Like it or not, you are excluded from or consumed into whiteness based on things that have little to do with your own personal racial identification or cultural heritage. That’s how whiteness operates. It consolidates its power by stretching to contain as many disparate people as possible, to make itself a false majority, and then it makes membership so attractive and otherness so abhorrant that the power structure upholds itself."

This is why it is so crucial to distinguish between transracial adoption and transethnic adoption.

Transethnic adoptees experience the profound loss of heritage and erasure of identity, but they also benefit from white privilege in ways that transracial adoptees never can.
