Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles.
But white folks too quick to say we have ‘enough’ roles for Black folks in media…
Bob and the deli guy.
#i had to make this just so i could watch it whenever i wanted #i just fucking love that it’s not played off like the usual gay panic joke #this rly exemplifies the humor of the show for me and why I love it so much #it’s akward and weird but never EVER mean #the important misunderstanding in this situation isn’t Bob’s sexuality; it’s the reason why he keeps buying turkeys #like he’s def more concerned that this deli guy thinks he’s not a real cook than he is about being hit on
Not to mention that he said he’s straight and then says well kind of straight but that actually he’s married but if he wasn’t he would go for it except that he thinks the guy is way out of his league. Legit this is the best show ever! This is exactly how all kinds of sexualities should be dealt with in every show! This is what we want it’s amazing
A 20-year-old girl from South Africa known as Sarah “Saartjie” Baartman was recruited to work in a Paris zoo because of a genetic characteristic known as steatopygia – protuberant buttocks and elongated labia. Whites went to the zoo to look at her buttocks and at other naked Black women with the same shape.
Gawking with desire: since forever and today.
This is the shit that I was talking about. Black women have a history of being treated like animals and if we dare say some shit about it we get shut down and told we’re either over reacting or lying for attention.

this was so iconic, i’m glad i was alive for it
Can we just give huge props to this model for walking on a wet runway in stiletos?
This changed my life. When she walked down the runway I gasped.
I was so nervous it wouldn’t work. I was cheering and clapping and jumping up and down
If you don’t think human bodies are art you are so fucking wrong

True life: I got kicked out of class in the third grade for bringing this up.
I’m pretty sure my child is going to get kicked out of class for being aware. And I will take them out for pizza when it happens. Fools won’t brainwash my babies. Uh uh.
Get your ass beat together as friends lmao
I’m always happy when I’m surrounded by water, I think I’m a Mermaid or I was a Mermaid. The ocean makes me feel really small and it put’s my whole life into perspective… it reminds me, okay I’m this very little piece of this huge Earth and it humbles you and it grounds you and it makes me feel almost like I’ve been baptized and I’m born again when I get out the ocean.”- Beyoncé
