“Listen, guys…dancing isn’t something you think about. It’s a form of self-expression that no one can ever take away from you.”
After coming home from drunkenly dancing to the likes of Ke$shA (eh), Nicki Minaj (meh), and some guy that sounds like JaRule (it can’t be because he’s in jail right?), it’s 2am and I wanna boogie to this!!
I love this song so much.
#don't be a dick
Yes honey. You must know how to reeeead.
I know this is supposed to be a comedy and its supposed to be funny, but women should stop being bitches to each other and passing it on to the younger generations. I never learned to fight like this. My parents taught me to at least try to listen and be respectful even when in conflict (fancy that) and I paid for being unprepared to handle crazy bitches with my evaporating self-esteem. I know, I know. It’s supposed to be funny. Bein’ “sassy” is funny, but bein’ “sassy” is not the same as being an asshole. We shouldn’t teach kids that cutting other people down makes them taller; because it’s not true. Instead teach them not to be a dick. It’s way more beneficial in the long run.
"The thing that sucks about Girls and Seinfeld and Sex and the City and every other TV show like them isn’t that they don’t include strong characters focusing on the problems facing blacks and Latinos in America today. The thing that sucks about those shows is that millions of black people look at them and can relate on so many levels to Hannah Horvath and Charlotte York and George Costanza, and yet those characters never look like us. The guys begging for money look like us. The mad black chicks telling white ladies to stay away from their families look like us. Always a gangster, never a rich kid whose parents are both college professors. After a while, the disparity between our affinity for these shows and their lack of affinity towards us puts reality into stark relief: When we look at Lena Dunham and Jerry Seinfeld, we see people with whom we have a lot in common. When they look at us, they see strangers."
When they look at us, they see strangers.
I was trying to find this quote recently. I don’t think most white people understand how it feels to be thought of as only as a dehumanized stereotype or a token. Never as someone like you who can be relatable and have things in common with you. It’s always a surprise to people online and offline when people find out that I like things that they do, too ; that I’m not just some angry activism-obsessed woman. When people like Lena Dunham say they don’t know how to write Black people, it’s pretty much saying that she doesn’t think that Black people are also fully complex human beings like her. Sure, there are cultural considerations to be made, but it’s ignoring the fact that people of color are diverse and not a monolith, so it’s not like the only girls who are like her are white.
This is important.
I love it when people put things into perspective like this.
