GET TO KNOW ME MEME: [1/10] favorite actresses - Natalie Dormer
"Television is way ahead of film because it doesn’t feel the need to polarize women. Male writers either want to make women the angel or the whore. Women are more complex than that.”
I’m white and I live in a place where I’m a minority. Where I live there are mostly Mexicans, it’s used either as much or more than English.
I guess this is why I get so confused when people talk about whites being the bad guys, it’s not like that here. I was born and raised with Mexicans so I never really saw a huge population of white people and how they act around people of colour. I’ve been taught that white people are the bad guys but I’ve never seen it where I live.
I’m honestly scared to move away because from what I’ve seen on the news, white people can be corrupt. I know that not all white people are like this, obviously, but I do not want to encounter the evil ones. I’ll defend the people I’ve known for all my life and they will, undoubtedly, hate me for it.
And that’s okay, I’ll stand up for what’s right.
If children of color have to be aware of the realities of racism, white children should too.
I’m tired of hearing that white children are too young to understand the consequence of their words or actions when for nonwhite kids they live with the impact of racism every day
to be the one you think of
when you can’t think straight.
I swear, I’m gonna end up owning every type of lizard I can find.
