WHAT IF

forging-faces:

Mal didn’t die right away? What if she were taken to the hospital and Dom was forced to pull the plug weeks after she jumped?

What if Eames snuck into her room, stood by her bedside, gently squeezed her hand, and begged her not to go whenever Dom left to be at home with the children?

What if Eames were there when Dom pulled the plug but had to be escorted out by security because Eames tried to physically stop it and was yelling and threatening Dom?

I apologize as this comes off as disrespectful to Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin. Or their families. Or YOU, the reader. I’m not about that. That’s not why I drew this.

I am just really freaked out that 40% of Americans (and 47% of White Americans) do not think that the killings and violence in Ferguson ‘raise any racial issues.’ Fellow White Persons, this is our chance to learn. This is our chance to change.

When Trayvon Martin was murdered because Full Grown Men in America are frightened to violence by the presence black children, the dialogue turned very quickly into a conversation about gun control.

And gun control is an issue that deserves our attention.

But it won’t change the massive poverty in Black America. The arrest rate. The education statistics. The institutional, systemic, casual, or passive racism that plagues our country.

And it wouldn’t have saved Michael Brown.

Anyway. I’m sorry if this comes off as disrespectful or insincere or preachy. I’m sorry if my execution (or personality) gets in the way of what I’m trying to say. I am an imperfect artist, an imperfect person, and I am, undoubtedly, blinded to a million things by my own glaring whiteness. So this might be… Lord, this might be awful. I’m so sorry if it’s awful. Really.

But. I just keep thinking… Look, my wife is pregnant with our first child. A boy. We’re nervous, we’re excited, we’re SO ANXIOUS because what the hell do you do with babies? WE don’t know. But if we were a black family… in this country… we would be so terrified. Because we live in a nation that murders the children of black parents, puts it on the news WITH RIOTS AND TEAR GAS as decoration, and still half of us don’t even see it as a problem. Can you imagine that? Can you imagine bringing a child into that reality, to face the odds we lay out for black kids?

That would break me. I’ve never known anything like that. No one should ever know anything like that.

So let’s talk to our friends about race. Lets talk to our families. And when actual victims of racism try to tell us what’s going on in, say, a peaceful community protest as they are being gassed and shot at by cops WE SHOULD LISTEN TO AND BELIEVE THEM. Let’s talk to each other about this until we are all on the same page.

And then let’s turn the damn page.

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

I want to say something, but anything I could say would be inadequate against something like racism. I’m sorry that happened to you. ):

im sorry too! but i totally appreciate you wanting to reach out and adore you for it <3

char-redtoast replied to your post “i remember when i was in high school in canada, i was at my locker…”

Rant the fuck away. It’s such a relief to read, yet I get angry for/with you reading stories like this. I grew up in a largely white area but with significiant asian pop. I know it doesn’t mean much from me, but if you ever need to rant more, do it.

au contraire, it means so much to me to know that you support and validate my feelings :) there’s nothing better, and im feeling the love right now xo thank you

i remember when i was in high school in canada, i was at my locker just packing away my things, and i saw someone i knew from my biology class and said hello, and i remember this kid - some white kid named dan - turning around and saying “what? little asian bitch” right to my face. he thought it was funny, he thought it was going to make his friends laugh. 

(dan and i talked pretty regularly in biology, and he’d never been rude to me before, and i’d never been rude to him.) but

 at that moment, i realized that my color, my race, was a weapon that could be used against me anytime, and that as LONG AS I WAS NOT WHITE, even my friends could marginalize me for no other reason at all

dan has probably forgotten about that incident now, but i remember it still, and i’ll probably remember it ten years from now. i remember how i went home and cried and didn’t want to tell my mom about it because it just kept happening to me every year and i didn’t want to make her cry again.

grade eight, asian jokes. grade nine, asian jokes AND threats over the internet, grade ten, “oh you’re asian, you probably dont know how to play volleyball”, grade eleven, i was a ‘little asian bitch’, and i stopped caring by grade twelve - i rarely left the house, i didn’t even go to the fucking senior retreat because i knew there was a chance someone could make me feel like i shouldn’t exist again

when my family and i went to england, people pointed at our car and told us that the ‘chinese should get out and go back to their country’ in broad daylight (i’m not chinese) 

when we went to ireland, people looked at us and assumed that we didn’t know any english, made faces, and said “oh, they’re chinese" (again, i’m not chinese)

i used to love traveling.

i will never take any person that says jokes about race are harmless seriously. i will NEVER take any white person that tells me i need to stop talking about race, my race, and the RACIST issues that continue in this fucked up world

i don’t want to hear ANYONE tell me that just because THEY haven’t seen racism, it doesn’t exist

ishallsustainamassiveerection replied to your post “uhh dont get me wrong, i love me some joseph gordon levitt, but why is…”

i don’t agree with him being praised while women of colour are not but i think it has a lot to do with the fact that he’s hollywood and it’s like ‘omg he’s a new wave hollywood bachelor who thinks women are people’ it’s complete bullshit buttt

well the thing is there have been many hollywood female actresses who’ve openly called themselves feminists and always ALWAYS they get criticized for it and you’re right, it’s absolute fucking bullshit

im sure there are people who don’t like it that JGL calls himself a feminist, but mostly, i’ve seen people/the media praising him. when female actresses or musicians call themselves feminists, the media and the audience seem to have either negative or mixed reviews (i.e. ellen page). OR well-known actresses who are feminists don’t get media coverage at all for being feminists (this case ive noticed the most with WoC). 

:T that’s what puzzles me the most. it’s just like…hello there is the evidence for why we need feminism in the first place?? 

uhh dont get me wrong, i love me some joseph gordon levitt, but why is it that when he says he’s a feminist, everyone thinks he’s so progressive and awesome

but why is it that when women (espeCIALLY) women of colour say they’re feminists, we get shat on?
