Right now the game I’ve been playing regularly is Tomodachi Life. At first I thought I wouldn’t like it but since I can finally play a game where I can create the representation I want to see, I really like it. It’s like Animal Crossing but you can actually make it diverse. I had to make a work around for same-sex relationships by introducing transgendered ones (the Mii in the neon sky blue hair and eyeshadow is trans. I think I have 4 on the island so far, most of them in relationships, half already married.)
I really like this game :3
Alexis Brown of Straight Line Stitch does a pretty good job : 3
Look at what the fuck we got in the mail this morning. Less than a month away until the dopest cookbook ever drops.
Preorder your copy now or get left behind this fall.
nah bruh, can’t support this shit at all.
I definitely can’t fuck with it, especially since the authors are white. Black Americans literally can’t get jobs because they speak this dialect, but when white people do it all of a sudden it’s edgy and novel. Just another example of white people profiting off of doing something black people have been persecuted for.
boycott this. also their faces
Folks what the fuck
See, this kind of shit is why my cookbooks all have Queen Afua’s name on it.
I think I threw this book away when I came across it in the Library of Congress. We don’t tend to keep trash.
Lemme fuck you up with some knowledge right quick
When I say ‘I’ve never seen Dirty Dancing, any Aflred Hitchcock movie, any Star Wars film, the Die Hard series, the Terminator movies, that dancing one Kevin Beacon is famous for, Top Gun, a James Bond movie, etc,’ you should see the look on people’s faces. Black people who have immersed themselves in dominant culture kinda give me a ‘really?’ look, but white people are simply flabbergasted. They’re confused, lost, sometimes offended. But then if I ask them ‘well, have you seen Coming To America, Crooklyn, Lean On Me, Raisin In The Sun, Do The Right Thing, School Daze, Harlem Nights, Women of Brewster Place, The Color Purple, etc,’ those same white people seem taken back that they would have been expected to see those films/play.
It’s like this entitlement to have your cultural phenomena known and appreciated when you clearly refuse to even acknowledge the contributions of others.
Not only do people of color tend to be intimately familiar with the cultural tastes of white people while having our cultural contributions ignored when not being appropriated, we’re expected to…and that’s where I have a problem.
This!!!! This…is so important. I am tired of White supremacy being the standard by which what aspects of popular culture are determined to be valuable or not. And truly sick of Black culture being simultaneously hyper-consumed for appropriation, but erased through devaluation.
