when ur group of privileged friends are laughing about something terrible and offensive
Trailer for the film, The Good Lie.
Yet another good/effective [white] lie. The same, centuries old pattern, wherein CONTINENTAL African stories only have value when told both through the white gaze and with a central white savior.
Disappointed we remain.
This is exactly what I thought. I was watching the Queen Latifah show the other day and Reese and the other actors were promoting this movie and something about it just rubbed me the wrong way. It’s always the same ol’ white savior shit.
smh?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! “hi im a white lady and i helped someone that was not white so i should get a movie about it”

The actresses from our show did a segment on their casting experiences in Hollywood. It’s eye opening and I’m hoping people see the need to donate to this project if they haven’t already!
MisSpelled is about five girls who mysteriously acquire magical powers and how they learn to deal with them and one another. It’s a dramedy and mostly just a fantastical adventure featuring an all women of color cast and a variety of body types.
So often we clamor for diversity and when shows like MisSpelled pop up they fall by the wayside because they don’t have the financial backing of a network.

Please spread the word! MisSpelled needs you!

FURIOUS that anyone thinks they can package sexual street harassment as a prank and everything’s okay.
FURIOUS at everyone commenting in support of this fucker.
FURIOUS that these people are given a platform for their misogyny while the rest of us walk faster and hold our keys in our hands and say fuck off to anyone that dare approach us…but only if we feel somewhat safe…and so often we do not feel safe.
So so angry. Wide awake with anger.
