Scarlett Johansson stars in the sci-fi film Lucy, a story about a white woman in Taiwan for some reason who suffers medical violence from savage Asians and is only important because of the research of a professor of color.
“A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.”
"Lucy is set in a world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupt cops. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, changing her into a superhuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts."

Wow fuck you
oh my god this makes me so mad I can’t
in the trailer there’s a scene where she asks a taiwanese man if he speaks english and when he says no she literally kills him on the spot. but ~girl power~, right? it’s disgusting
Yay…justification for linguistic imperialism…
So just imagine this flipped: a drug addled foreigner with guns shoots anyone who can’t speak their language and holds doctors hostage.
But she’s the hero. Oh, ok.
nope not gonna watch this
So, apparently The Colbert Report tweeted this (and then took it down). #CancelColbert has been trending for an hour now.
I wasn’t sure whether it was real or not, but I was able to find a cached version of the tweet on The Colbert Report’s Facebook page:
oh my god
HOLY SHIT. Please watch this!
Basically a music video parody about Hollywood type casting.
Mississippi Judge Takes Baby Away From Mother, Says Lack Of English Would Cause ‘Developmental’ Problems
A federal judge has ruled that a case against two employees of Singing River Hospital and a state child welfare caseworker accused of unjustly separating a newborn baby from her mother may proceed – denying the defendants’ attempt to claim immunity for their actions
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Baltazar Cruz and her daughter. The mother – who speaks the indigenous Mexican language Chatino, limited Spanish and virtually no English – gave birth to her daughter at Singing River Hospital in November 2008. Two days later, the child was taken from her following allegations by a hospital employee who spoke only in Spanish to the mother.
They claimed she was undocumented, traded sex for housing and concluded she intended to give her child away. While she was at the hospital, her Chatino-speaking cousin tried to tell officials that she is actually employed at a Chinese restaurant, and did not in fact “admit” to allegations that she was involved in the sex trade. But a social services representatives who did not know her language nonetheless excluded her cousin from discussions between them.
After the state health department filed a “report of suspected abuse and neglect,” officials temporarily gave Baltazar Cruz’s baby to a couple who wanted to adopt a child, but were not licensed as foster parents, according to court documents. And at a court hearing that followed, Judge Sharon Sigalas agreed with the couple’s argument that the baby would have “developmental” problems because she would not communicate with the baby in English.
Baltazar Cruz was without her daughter for almost a year, and the court nearly terminated her parental rights.
It was only after a federal investigation of the case was initiated that the judge, prosecutor, and guardian ad litem all recused themselves from the case, claiming a new conflict of interest. The judge who replaced Sigalas granted Baltazar Cruz custody.
A federal judge ruled Friday that these officials could not now claim immunity from constitutional allegations against them, concluding, “This case is riddled with contradicting stories and potential indicia of misconduct.”
Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)
It isnt a mistake either. Tolkein was hella racist and purposefully made all of the inhabitants of middle earth white
I don’t understand why you would say that. Tolkien wrote the books. He didn’t specify skin color. If you’d ever read them you would know that.
Yeah he did actually. Most of the very dark skint folks served Sauron (the Easterlings, who were described as dark skinned and cruel, and the Southrons, who were described as dark skinned, cruel and evil…. notice a pattern?)
With the orcs described as “black skinned” and “slant eyed”
Idk about u but thats blatant as hell, yo
“He didn’t specify skin color. If you’d ever read them you would know that.”
Ghan Buri Ghan the one not-evil dark skinned character, part of a primitive tribe who, unlike everything else which is old, and white, and apparently awesome and sad to disappear, him and his people are disappearing and “oh well, whatevs, but thanks for helping the white guy and speaking in your primitive broken language” in ROTK:
Ghan-buri-Ghan was a short man with a flat, black-skinned face, jetty eyes, and dark hair. He had a wispy beard and wore nothing more than a grass skirt. Because they were not very civilized, the Druedain were often called the Wild Men or simply Woses. Ghan-buri-Ghan could speak both the Common Speech and his own language, though he struggled with the Common Speech.
Then there’s the “half orcs” which ends up being described a LOT like Yellow Peril imagery:
In one of the windows he caught a glimpse of a sallow face with sly, slanting eyes; but it vanished at once. ‘So that’s where that southerner is hiding!’ he thought. ‘He looks more than half like a goblin.
But there were some others that were horrible: man-high, but with goblin-faces, sallow, leering, squint-eyed. Do you know, they reminded me at once of that Southerner at Bree; only he was not so obviously orc-like as most of these were.’
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
So I went through an emotional turmoil “breaking up” with my friend and ended up online shopping to make myself feel better. I bought the whole series of Boy Meets World and was watching to relax AND WOW LOOK AN EPISODE ABOUT PREJUDICE, RACISM, AND ANTI-SEMITISM AND I’M SO EMOTIONAL. This show is still so valid in every way.
