if slugs were fast it would be very scary
Lupita Nyong’o (via sonofafieldnegro)
this is so important. too many actors fail to thank the people they play on screen. They often think they are those people and that they have actually done something through acting a part. Lupita knows the importance of playing the role of Patsey, but she always pays tribute to this real historical person and all the Patseys who have suffered. Lupita reminds everyone that Patsey is very real. That Solomon Northrup’s story is very real. This history from this movie is real and we must not forget. Thank you, Lupita. You’re an angel.

Debunking more lies and racist misinformation about black men. Stop the ignorance and start to question why these myths exist in the first place, if not to demonize black men and promote the image of us as inherently criminal and violent and incapable of being educated.
This coupled with the recent realization that black women are the most educated group…
It seems like there is this always present “when is the ‘black community’ going to pull themselves up from the bootstraps” question that floats around everywhere I go. Yet on micro and macro levels black excellence and success is only growing exponentially with each year - despite racism, institutional barriers, lack of privilege, colorblind ideologies and rampant gentrification.
Now imagine the gains we’d be able to make if people were willing to have these conversations and actually think critically about our society and culture
no more cis men playing trans women
no more equating trans women to men because they have the same genitals at birth
no more cis men getting awards for trans women roles while actual trans women are getting ignored
more trans women playing cis women. more trans women being treated like women instead of men in makeup. more trans women.
Put this on your blog. Our Queens are perfection.

Reality of the situation for 99.9% of all women.
Hand jobs and blow jobs are called jobs because they’re tedious and dicks are gross. Going down on a girl is called eating out because it’s a privilege.
sexuality is literally the most fluid thing ever and i have no idea what to think anymore the only thing i know is that hot people are hot
