Starting to realize that I mainly use tumblr during the summer. And, if I get rid of all forms of social media…tumblr will be the only thing I keep around.
Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”
- Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
- Honest social commentary
- Targeted to the college age demographic
- Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
- Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig
Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”
- White people calling it racist
- Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist

God bless the black people looking out for other black people no matter the skin tone, gender, religion, age, class or sexuality.

(Although if we are talking language as much as actual options, “nude” is a problem term… but I am not sure how happy I’d feel if my matching tone was labelled “mudslide”.)
Yup, the article does talk about issues with the term, particularly the problem with equating “nude” and “beige.”
There’s nothing wrong with the concept of “nude” lingerie (i.e. lingerie that is meant to blend seamlessly into your skintone). There is a problem, however, when the word “nude” refers to only one skin color…and it’s never dark skin.
I was just about to say, who the fuck wants to be referred to as “mudslide”?
Man, I’m never gonna be able to live down this L!
I’m breaking up with his weak ass,
but I can’t do it now or he’ll know it’s because he got his ass whooped.
