And in 5 years some generic white model will repeat this verbatim and will be praised as a pioneer for advocating Trans models

"Rahm Emanuel is not caring about our schools; he is not caring about our safety. He only cares about his kids. He only care about what he needs. He do not care about nobody else but himself.

He let Barbara Byrd-Bennett, a woman that’s from Detroit who don’t even know the streets of Chicago where I’m from, come in and close these schools.” [x]

Look at the passion y’all!!!

Teach the babies that their words matter yess

An important reminder to not underestimate children - and to not screw them over.

Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles. 

Chile

listen…

Halle Berry won and then played a bunch of bit parts or had to produce her own movies to get meaty roles…eventually turning to tv on a show she’s producing.

Denzel won and then was either typecast, teamed up with mediocre action stars, or produced his own movies to get meaty roles.

Jennifer Hudson won and her reward was playing Sarah Jessica Parker’s assistant in Sex And The City.

Monique won and disappeared because she angered people by speaking up about the bs.

Viola Davis keeps getting the broken, disheveled mom or wise friend roles… and eventually had to turn to a Black female producer on tv.

like… you can’t tell me this is typical for white actors. we talk about how shameful it is that Leo hasn’t won, but Leo has no trouble getting good, challenging, interesting starring roles. Neither do Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr…. like… come on! and yeah, white women have it harder than white men, but let’s talk about how much harder it is for Viola Davis to get a decent role than Sandra Bullock.

True ass facts.

And all these women are immensely talented and can out act all the Jennifer Lawrences, Blake Livelys, and etc.

This is why when people down a black actress for the type of roles she plays I tell them to cut the women some slack because it’s so hard for them.

my mom bought me tickets to see 2pm!!!!!! I’m so excited I get to see my bbs live
