New from Saturday A.M., Where Blackness & Manga Intersect: “Orisha”
This seems interesting.
Bong Joon Ho has been making fantastic films for a long time and Kang-ho Song has been one of the finest actors in the world for more than two decades.
There's just so much talent out there that rarely gets any attention because it doesn't fit a particular narrative here in the States.
But people are creating amazing and compelling stories everyday.
It's a big whole creative world out there. Sometimes, I think we forget how big it is.
Honestly, it seems like white folks would rather the world end than deal with the stupidity of adhering to culture that results in their death.
They'd rather have the APOCALYPSE (which they've visited upon so many cultures historically already, but that's another post) than just exercise some self reflection in the most basic sense.
We know what we gotta do to make the world a better place. It's not an esoteric solution.
White people are just violently against progress.
If it was the nature of humanity to kill itself, we'd have been wiped out a long time ago.
But it seems like white people seem to believe that the incredible breadth of humankind behaves, thinks and acts just like them, which is just arrogant hubris.
Most cultures in the world aren't dedicated to their own destruction like whiteness is and it is straight up delusional to even consider this a reasonable point of view.
Humanity will find a way to move on while whiteness eats itself.
And it's always interesting how they refer to the entirety of HUMANITY as if they familiar with any other system of thought outside of whiteness.
White people are the minority globally, but have cut a swathe through various cultures with brutal violence and theft, which still defines that culture to this day.
In my estimation, I would say they have no idea what humanity really is or is like.
White people want us to believe HUMANITY itself is the problem, which is just a fucked up lie.
So I was curious about this Extinction Rebellion after I saw @Shrigglepuss mention them and the first thing that jumps out at me is how white folks are always trying to reinvent the wheel when it comes to putting us on what they feel is the right path.
I mean... it's not exactly rocket science why we got to this point, but there is just this frantic pitch to solving global problems as if they haven't been solved many times over.
White folks just don't want to listen.
But don't come out here and insist that leftists are wrong for pointing out the systemic nature of racism in England, or that they're wrong if they're not 'inclusive' towards racist people.
Complain about a lack of help with anti-racism work, complain about a lack of anti-racist left propaganda. But don't complain about lefties who want to protect marginalized working class people by refusing to include folks who fucked themselves over by trying to hurt those who have been targeted by racism for centuries.
“When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven.”

Sexism at GitLab
Disappointing to see from a company that claims to value diversity, but unfortunately par for the course among tech companies.
