Comments on the trailer of the new Annie movie staring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx.
Would you just look at how racism isn’t a thing anymore in today’s society.
Every day, just a little more…
smh white people are insane
"Racism is dead and black people should just get over it."
If white people don’t disappoint you on a regular basis, you are not paying attention….
"Catwoman" Annie? When Eartha Kitt is the iconic Catwoman from the 1960s? SMDH.
Joan Franka’s entry for Eurovision 2012 has huge issues with cultural appropriation and the promotion of harmful stereotypes.
I understand that some of y’all honestly do not know the situation, so I’m going to explain. The “head dress” that Franka wears is a war bonnet. In certain Native tribes, these are sacred. War bonnets must be earned, and a similar way to view it would be if a non-veteran dressed up as a military veteran and went around wearing that uniform in addition to medals of honor they didn’t earn. It’s compounded by the fact that many tribal cultures are wholesale appropriated, intermingled and pawned off as fashion for money. This is even more problematic, because the governments in charge had genocidal policies in effect for decades that forcibly removed children from their families and sent them to “boarding schools” to destroy their cultural heritage. Children were beaten, sexually assaulted, and even murdered if they clung to their culture. The same culture that is now being stolen and pawned off as quirky or hipster fashion.
Furthermore, cowboys and Indians is not a game that needs to be played. It’s based off racist and genocidal attitudes of settlers who invaded and stole land from indigenous populations. There is an awful history behind the “innocent children’s game”. I also say this as a Native child who was tormented for years in elementary school by classmates who forced me to play cowboys and Indians. I have physical scars that are still visible from these incidents. It’s sending a message of acceptable and coded violence, and people are hurt by it.
For Natives, Indigenous, and First Nations, that entry is racist and incredibly offensive. Even if she didn’t intend for it to be, or even if she didn’t know, the fact remains that it is. (Don’t even get me started on Roger Pontare.)
Thanks for reading this.
Euphoria, an everlasting piece of cake
