"Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in."

my uncle left this comment on his friend’s Facebook status, a white British man who was bragging about how easy it is to be a native English speaker when trekking to different nations. (via commanderspock)

shot on the tail bone? 

Bludgeoned to death on top of my head?

Stabbed in the elbow?

stabbed right the in center of my chest!

……..one on my forehead and one on the back of my neck……..hmmm

I must have been Sleeping Beauty or something because my birth mark is on the tip of my finger…

Mine is on my eye lid…

That’s … eye lid? Oh my…

Maybe someone chopped my legs off? Two identical birthmarks in the same place on opposite legs

Shot in the butt lmaoooo

Stabbed in the arm. And then got my stomach ripped open. Ouch.

A lot of people were like, “But this guy doesn’t look like Simba!” and I’m just -There are only so many ways you can interpret a lion, guys. I mean Bear!Kenai didn’t look like human!Kenai, did he?I rest my case. Also don’t remove my commentary, jeeze guys.

Yeah, it never mattered to me what race someone chose to portray him as, if he were human. It doesn’t matter. Simba’s a lion, he doesn’t have a human’s race. And the whole “he’s in Africa so he must be black” thing seems as arbitrary as making him white because it fits his color scheme more. (No one ever seems to mention how not-light-skinned Pumbaa is in that pic)
Also, he’s a friggin’ lion, geez.

Actually it does matter. That’s why I drew it.

I can’t actually see why it would. It doesn’t seem all that important, and it seems like it just comes down to the artist’s own personal style and preference.
Maybe you could tell me how it does matter, or give me an idea, because I don’t know how to look at this.

Because white people in Africa is a product of colonization. So making Simba white is completely and totally problematic. Especially when lions are native to Africa, and the fact that there are nine billion other perfectly white, Eurocentric Disney movies we can all gush over. Why wouldn’t he be black?Also because canonically speaking, Simba is portrayed by a black man in the broadway show, and I don’t see why that isn’tconsidered word of god already.

So a story set in East Africa based on a Malian folk tale wouldn’t automatically be thought of as an African man?
Ok.

My buddy Alex got arrested for painting and he had some weed on him so they took, we live in Washington where weed is legal so he didn’t get charges for it. This is where it gets tight

He gets out and he gets a letter in the mail telling him he can come to the court house and claim his weed back from the state What a time we live in.

And I still appreciate each and every one of you who continues to follow me no matter how silly, or annoying, or weird I am.

of course not. I love Jesus and Jesus was black.

Actually, Jesus was middle eastern and everyone else in the bible historically speaking

Jesus turned water into wine and hosted the world largest fish fry.

He was 200% nigga.
