Kanye West getting deep on twitter
this is why I love this man.
Okay, if you don’t love Kanye, I question you and will forever until you learn.
I’ve never had a man ask me straight up if it was okay to use the word “bitch” even endearingly.
i forever dislike any’t like kanye.
NGL every time I put on my Childish Gambino pandora station some song catches my ear and I think “damn this is enjoyable I should see who it is CURSE YOU KANYE WEST YOU TRICKED ME AGAIN.”

Whitewashed casting has undermined a progressive franchise.
This article is really good and says everything I can never put into words because I really am just not articulate enough.
I love this:
Racebending.com has always pointed out that villains are generally played by people with darker skin, and that’s true … unless the villain is one with intelligence, depth, complexity. One who garners sympathy from the audience, or if not sympathy, then — as from Kirk — grudging admiration. What this new Trek movie tells us, what JJ Abrams is telling us, is that no brown-skinned man can accomplish all that. That only by having Khan played by a white actor can the audience engage with and feel for him, believe that he’s smart and capable and a match for our Enterprise crew.
I think that is a really good point (especially for those who think its ok to not have another terrorist played by a poc). It’s ok to have “dumb” terrorists be poc, but a smart one? nah, let him be white.
unless something else pops up, this will probably be my last word about this. it’s time for me to relax. lol
Okay, if John Harrison was frozen 200 years ago… do they actually mean they froze Sherlock?
And do they actually mean that Harrison aka. Sherlock was so pissed with this whole frozen-colleague-situation because Watson and Mycroft and Irene Adler and Lestrade and Mrs. Hudson were frozen as well?
And does that explain Harrisons affectation for fancy coats?
Well, I’d say: YES!!!
Gonna quickly throw in an epic quote I found on this article.
KJKJ: Gene Roddenberry, with balls of brass, got up on national tv and said, “hey people, if a geneticist took all the best DNA from planet Earth and put it together to make the best human the world has ever seen - he wouldn’t be a white guy.”
This is why I find the casting of a white actor in this role to be so repugnant. They are not whitewashing an Asian role, they are saying that the best genetic material that the entirety of this world and it’s diversity has to offer….still comes from a white guy.
I feel like I should be mad over the whole whitewashing issue in Into Darkness.
Honestly? I’m not that upset, but being a person of color, I should be. Should the casting have been handled better? Yes definitely. It’s totally justifiable for people to be mad over it. Don’t tell them they are…
