Katy Perry doesn’t care if people think she’s racist. Her career will continue to thrive unless she does something to offend either white women or white gays.

I’m not even a Katy Perry fan but if you’re gonna rage over her “cultural appropriation” please be sure to mention everyone else who does it.

I’ve seen plenty of you here on tumblr and twitter bitch about Katy Perry’s braids yet you just adore Brooke Candy.

What I’m saying is, if you call yourself being against something please don’t pick and choose when, you can’t make it okay for some artist and wrong for others.

I personally don’t consider Katy Perry’s music video a product of “cultural appropriation”.

1) Beyoncé was in China surrounded by native people who were teaching her. She wasn’t making a joke of their culture.

2) Nicki… Well… No comment.

3) Pharrell knew what he did was wrong and apologized immediately afterwards.

4) Katy does this CONSTANTLY without apology. She just blissfully remains ignorant and doesn’t care about appropriating other cultures because she just simple writes it off as “embracing” it. That’s the problem with her, Iggy, Gaga, Miley, and so on. They don’t give a fuck about disrespecting someone else’s culture because they think it’s cute or high fashion.

Those pictures of Beyoncé and Pharrell are weak comparisons to what those idiots do.

Edit: it’s sad that the person making excuses for Katy is a black man. It’s really unfortunate that a lot of you will remain lost and ignorant forever.

I no longer feel like I look younger than I actually am

I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.s

Muslim sisters thirsting for Aladdin, love yourselves. The true (Disney) man you should be thirsting for is Shang from Mulan who actually goes to visit Mulan’s family before making any moves on her. MashaAllah, Li Shang, keep up the halaal.

Néle Azevedo :Ice Men Figuriines in Belfast, Ireland (10 PICS)

brazilian artist néle azevedo ,presented as part of the belfast
festival at queen’s university in northern ireland.
the artwork is a collection of hundreds of carved ‘ice-men’, ‘Monumento Minimo’, perched readily side by side on the steps of custom house in the city of belfast, a carefully prepared intervention that slowly thawed under the heat of the day. the figures sit slouched, with legs dangling – an oddly charming set of characters
full of aloof charisma. the project was selected by the curator of the event as a tribute to titanic victims,  the ephemeral artwork a powerful expression of  the transitory nature of life, and death.

Let’s talk about the racist notion, deeply embedded in US culture, of Asians as perpetual foreigners. Specifically, maybe you heard about this massive facepalm from US Congress just last week.
At a congressional hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday, July 24, 2014, Florida Republican Congressman Curt Clawson (above, left) addressed Nisha Biswal (right) and Arun Kumar, two US citizens and senior officials working for the US State Department and US Commerce Department, with these words:

“I’m familiar with your country. I love your country. Anything I can do to make the relationship with India better, I’m willing and enthusiastic about doing so. Just as your capital is welcome here to produce good-paying jobs in the U.S., I’d like our capital to be welcome there. I ask cooperation and commitment and priority from your government in so doing.”

Needless to say, Biswal and Kumar are Indian Americans who hold senior position within the US government, and were introduced as such at the hearing, but the Tea Party Congressman repeatedly spoke to them about India as “your country” and “your government”. An incredibly awkward silence was finally broken when Biswal said: “I think your question is to the Indian government.”
