Okay, I am in no way an expert on these matters, but Disney animating movies for children is precisely why they need POC. Children are at the age when they’re most susceptible to subliminal messaging because they’re brains are still developing and formulating what they’ll perceive as truth. If a child of color is constantly bombarded with images of the white knight (literally) or the strong white heroine, they will begin to associate white with good, and it could lead to self-esteem issues over their own race. Children enjoy seeing themselves mirrored positively in the media they consumed. They may not be able to express it, but that’s how it is. Why do you think MLK Jr. was so insistent that Nichelle Nichols stay on Star Trek after one season?
I do not wish to get involved in your pointless discussions, you people. I said what I think of what Disney does or not.
Racial undertones… Racism… It’s like a new trend to see and talk about raism on every occasion, it’s crazy! Should I feel bad for not drawing people of color?
As a person of color, I would like to say that no. You should not feel bad for not drawing people of color. Hell 90% of the people I draw are whiter than sour cream. Draw whoever you want to draw, as whatever race you feel like. It’s your art, your choice.
Then I don’t understand why it’s so freakishly racist when Disney’s artists draw what they want.
Because people have to find something to be butthurt about, now in no way am I saying that the lack of proper representation for people of color isn’t a problem. I just don’t think it’s that serious of one. Disney animates movies for children, who don’t care about the color of skin unless you raise them too. The projection of anger on these sort of issues can directly correlated to the psychological need to focus our rage and in some cases guilt, on something outside of us because we’re unable to sit down and handle whatever it is that is truly making us angry.
When you think about it, how many of these people getting pissy about this stuff do you see ever actually trying to do anything about it? Are they boycotting Disney? Obviously not since they’re going to see these “white-washed” movies so they can bitch about them. Are they going out and attempting to create their own works that present people of color the way they want to? No, no they’re just whining.
Disney is not racist, it’s a fucking Animation Studio that directs its products at children. They make movies they’d want to see, or that they would want their own children to see. They make movies about love, and friendship, and strength. The color of the characters skin in the movies aren’t what’s important. My little sister gets that better than these adults and that’s just sad.
I’m sorry but there is so much wrong in what you say i don’t even have a strength to point it all out.
And to the op - maybe you shouldn’t feel bad about not drawing people of color but the fact that you arent sure should make you think why aren’t you.
Superman’ supposed to be the golden boy and yet it’s like he literally didn’t give a shit about the casualties. At least in Avengers, half the big fight scene was spent evacuating and containing to preserve human life. Sorry, I just like friendly Superman. Either that or excessively righteous controlling Superman, but that’s because I like trouble within superhero teams that creates tasty tension.
Man of Steel made me angry because I knew that that wasn’t how it ought to have been and yet I don’t know enough about Superman to know WHY.
Yet it was done perfectly.
I didn’t like it.
I’m not sure if this will get any exposure, but is anyone willing to trade a U.Kwon Jackpot photocard for a Zico or a Taeil Welcome to the Block photocard for a Zico? (From their respective albums, obv.)

I swear on everything that this isn’t just some stupid contest to gain followers. I’ve been wanting a new camera for ages so now I have two. I was thinking about returning/selling my old one, but I wouldn’t be getting the same amount or more than what it was originally priced. I’ve already talked to my mum about me giving it away, and she doesn’t mind. Anyway, who doesn’t like free stuff?
Here’s how this will work:
- You do not have to follow me. I don’t want any followers that don’t actually like my blog. I do ask of you to kindly check out my blog though. If you like it cool, if not, then your loss.
- Likes do not count for anything, only reblogs will count. You can reblog this as many times as you’d like.
- Do not create any extra blogs or whatever, I will be looking on your archives.
- Winner will be chosen like as if it were a raffle drawing.
- Winner will be contacted via ask, so make sure that you have that on/open.
- This will be over on August 21st 2014, and the winner will be announced on the 22nd.
I am doing this basically to make someone else happy and also because I accidentally deleted the other contest I was doing. Please don’t participate if you already own a Canon, but you can if you’d like I guess. I really don’t care if you live in Hogwarts, anyone is allowed to enter.
Here’s what the winner will get:
- Canon EOS 1100D
- Camera Cover R-F-3
- Battery Charger LC-E10E
- EUR AC Cable 1m
- Battery pack LP-E10
- Battery cover
- Interface cable IFC-130U
- All the disks needed.
The camera is basically brand new.
If you think this is “stupid” of me to do or anything of that sort, than just ignore it. It’s that simple.
Q. “Why would you just giveaway an expensive camera to a stranger?”
A. TO MAKE THEM HAPPY!
Q. “How do we know you aren’t bullshitting us?”
A. To make a fake contest just for followers is stupid, plus, I have a picture of me holding both the cameras :)
