edit: Ricardo Montalban, the actor who originally portrayed Khan, is Mexican, yes. The character, however, is Asian (specifically Sikh). I apologize for not making the actor/character difference clear, and I do agree it was inappropriate to put Khan in this post, since POC are not interchangeable. I wanted to show how a TV show in the 60’s cast a POC for a POC, while a Hollywood blockbuster made in 2013 cast a white actor for a POC. Apologies for not explaining the Khan issue further.

I am never coming back to this site ever again. I guess when a Japanese person wants to talk about feminism and politics in anime they will be shut down by hundreds of non-Japanese people. Some white people even have the gall to claim that they are “familiar…
my mother stumbled across a photo of my sister and her god awful douchey bf and texted us “he is so ugly how could she stand dating him….Lord help me….”
i have no answer really.
This is Michael Dunn, presumably confused as to how he just got away with murder.
Dunn, who repeatedly fired his gun at a vehicle in which 17-year-old Jordan Davis was killed, claimed to have been threatened with a shotgun. Police never found a shotgun; no witnesses reported seeing one. Though one thing is clear: Dunn told the kids to stop playing their “thug music” loudly, and later decided the best way to end the resulting dispute was by firing a gun at Davis’s car ten times — even as it pulled away.
Dunn invoked Florida’s well-used-by-threatened-people-who-aren’t-black “Stand Your Ground” defense. While the jury was deadlocked on the murder charge — for Davis’s killing — they found him guilty in the attempted murder of the three other teens in the car and he now faces up to 60 years in prison.
But still, bottom line is a white man got away with killing a black teen in Florida. And shit isn’t ever going to change in the Sunshine State.

stop using the words “white privilege” when talking about this case THIS SHIT IS WHITE SUPREMACY. PLAIN AND FUCKING SIMPLE.
A WHITE MAN SHOT A BLACK KID BECAUSE THE BLACK KID DIDN’T SHOW ENOUGH DEFERENCE TO HIM. THIS IS RACIST VIGILATISM. THIS IS THE MAINTAINING OF JIM CROW ETIQUETTE. THIS IS THE RESULT OF A “JUSTICE” SYSTEM BASED ON LAWS THAT AT FIRST DIDN’T RECOGNIZE BLACK PEOPLE AND HUMAN BEINGS AND THEN ONLY RECOGNIZED THEM AS SUCH WHEN THEY COMMITTED A CRIME. THIS IS WHITE SUPREMACY. THIS IS ANTIBLACKNESS.
CALL IT WHAT THE FUCK IT IS.
This is so ridiculous. Beyoncé is married and a grown ass woman. She can do whatever she wants.
Please. Every award show these so-called parents complain about something or the other. Shouldn’t they know by now that awards shows aren’t for youngsters? Even the networks by now have the censor button on standby.
Farthest thing from a Beyonce stan, but people really gonna call her a whore? Really? I cannot.
The bullshit morality police are really trying it.
Wow! A whore, seriously?! Smh!
Um did anybody see lady gaga dancing half naked at the mtv awards last year…. ok
THANK YOU! Shit, Gaga had on a bra and [thong] panties….Bey was more covered up than her, but crickets. FOH, racist* ass motherfuckers.
*And y’all know that I’m not quick to label shit racist, but this shit is clear as fucking day. Black women are not allowed to be sexual w/o being labeled a whore.
So…..she’s a whore for singing a song about making love to her husband while she was scantily clad (though still more covered up than others have been on these shows), even standing next to said husband onstage. But Miley is just a young girl trying to discover herself while wearing even less than this and rubbing up on an older man who’s married to another woman?
Lol I bet all those wives mad at Beyonce have husbands that wish their wives would even sing about riding them that good.
Prolly jizz in their pants
Ol boring sex ass saltines
mizmlee replied to your post:Hi there! I’d hate to re-kindle this topic, but I’d like to ask something. Because I am someone who respects what other people have to say and accept that people have their own opinions, I’m not looking to sit here and start an argument. However, what I would like to know is, if you saw me in public, or I tried to start a conversation with you, would you reject? ( I am a white, Germanic female.) Or would you be willing to put skin aside????
HEY I HEAR YOU’RE FAMOUS NOW WITH YOUR TWEETS MAKING ON BIGTIME WEBSITES!
expect a JAWESOME tweet at any moment.
lol, ONE tweet is hardly famous for anything.
AND I CAN DO WITHOUT THE SHARKS THANK YOU.
I see plenty already just from following you >.<
Being humble, I see, I can dig that. Not letting the fame get to your head. I mean, if I made it onto a website, I would be feeling pretty
Bianca Lawson responded to me on Twitter once and I basically thought I was the greatest human being on the planet.
Everyone could use more sharks, just ask Izzy. But no worries, I actually barely know how to use Twitter in the first place, so it’s not like I could even bother you.
TUMBLR IS MORE EFFICIENT (and Facebook for poor Izzy, who has no escape from the JAWPOCALYPSE).
oh my god.
oh poor izzy.
