This is your latest update from the Katy Perry Racism Watch 2014. Perry’s got some kind of racially coded fuckery going on with these big-booty, big-tittied hoop earring-wearing hypersexual twerking mummy dancers on her Prismatic World Tour. I present them to you in comparison to some “hilarious” “harmless” “ghetto” blackface.
You can see these mummies in action during her ‘classic’ I Kissed A Girl in Manchester, England a few weeks ago. They kiss and fondle eachother’s inflated butts and boobs while fawning around Cleokatra.
And if you’re looking at these pics and you don’t see anything ‘wrong’ here, I think it’s time to do some reading about white culture’s long history of mocking/fetishizing black women’s curves. Read this one about “ironic” exploitation too. Read this one too while yer at it.
White women: We can NOT tolerate racist mocking of black bodies in pop culture, no matter how “ironic” and “cheeky” artists think they’re being. It’s far beyond time to stand up against this shit.
holy. fucking. shit. this woman is supposed to be a role model. she is supposed to inspire fierceness and strength. this woman???? FUCK. NO.
Slime. She is the equivalent of Slime.
oh HELL no. deleting any and all katy perry music off my playlists, and will never give her a red cent of my money ever again.
I had no idea she did shit like this. Deleting the ONE song of hers I have on my itunes. GTFO Katy.
"Last year, the British police *in total* fired their weapons fewer times than Darren Wilson did on August 9th."

TOTALLY OPTIONAL YO <3
I think that Original Airbenders confirmed the suspicion I’ve had for a long time; that Kya and Bumi really do not understand what it means to be in Tenzin’s position.
Kya goes on about how there were “like a million guru’s, why would I even remember one of them like c’mon” and “that long, boring tale who the heck cares about that amirite”, while Tenzin is trying to teach his new students essential knowledge about his culture, stories he has studied and memorized years ago, probably. Meanwhile Bumi doesn’t concentrate or care to do the hard work, and even pokes fun at Tenzin’s teaching methods - yes, Bumi might be “a natural leader” while his brother isn’t, but Tenzin was never a leader by choice, he never had that choice.
Everything Bumi and Kya are off-offhandedly dismissing is something Tenzin grew up having to learn or would have taken upon himself to learn out of assumed responsibility. He was never a part time member of daddy’s culture, he could not neglect the boring stuff that didn’t suit his liking - because if he didn’t memorize each and every Guru, who on earth would?
Keep in mind that it was Kya and Bumi who last season went on and on about how they felt excluded from the air nation and wanted to be part of their father’s legacy. It seems suggested that neither of them have really done that much to be part of it, really be part of it, to the extent Tenzin had to. It might have something to do with not feeling welcome in their childhood, that’s a possibility, but regardless I don’t think they at all understand what being ‘the last airbender’ has meant to Tenzin his entire life.
Training with dad wasn’t just goofing around on fun vacations. It was long field trips to all the air temples, and learning everything about their culture and history including the boring stuff. It was realizing that your father bore the colossal grief that only a sole survivor of a genocide can understand, it was being included in that grief and understanding you alone had the responsibility, the ability to give dad hope for the future. It was studying and training endlessly. It was boredom and memorizing long stories and facts. It was worrying and stressing about whether you’d ever be good enough. It was anxiety and distress when you realized that there were some things you would never do sufficiently (and that there was no one else to have your back). It was sacrifices and end relationships and loneliness and trying to fit into a path in life thrust upon you, not making a life that suited you.
That is perhaps my favorite thing about Bumi gaining airbending, because while it is true that Tenzin idealized Aang and the legacy he left him, I don’t think he is alone in that. I think that Kya and Bumi have no idea what Tenzin has gone through, why Aang gave him ‘special attention’ and that both of them needs to get an insight into Tenzin’s reality before they can really say they want to be part of it.
"In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them."
I was tagged by locktobre so here they are
SO anyway I’ll tag people but no one’s obligated to do this (it’s all in good fun :D)
