here’s the link to the article

In regards to his twittiness:


25 years to life for a fucking 15 year old? Why does America have to suck so much? I’m definitely not defending his actions, but the state is ruining this kid’s life for a dumb, immature prank. How does this judge sleep at night?

Hes setting using the case to set an example its a growing problem in America and this is the legal system showing people it will not tolerate it

So sacrificing a 15 year old kid at the altar of “justice” is the solution? I think not. That’s completely and totally barbaric and hearkens back to when a village would murder people and stick their heads on a pike to “make an example” of them to outsiders.

Was this really a harmless prank? Someone was shot and critically injured. I don’t often side with our criminal justice system. But this 15 year old’s disregard for the obvious danger of sending our militarized police into a rival gamer’s home with guns blazing should be a lesson to all. This isn’t a game. Innocent lives hang in the balance.

This story is fake. It’s from National Report, a known satire website. Swatting is a real thing, people actually do it, but let’s report real news. The picture above is actually from an article about 16-year-old Dylan Shchumaker, who killed his girlfriends son and was sentenced 25-to-life.

Thanks for your reply!You make very good points re: sexualising woc. I guess I was interpreting it more as the characters being sexually mature rather than behaving more sexually. There's no excuse for how sexualised Jasmine was in the slave scene (especially in a family movie). I forgot about Esmerelda too, the same applies to her dancing scene. With regards to Pocahontas though, couldn't the same be said of the earlier princesses? I'd be very interested in your Pocahontas design analysis btw!

Comparing Pocahontas to Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora is a little difficult without getting to the subtle nuances of racial fetishism. But here’s the short of it: Pocahontas is first seen as an exotic object by John Smith firstly. The scene where he gazes at her intensely is not the same kind of attention that any of the classical princess got. The male gaze still factors in, but none are as gratuitous or objectifying as John Smith’s attention on Pocahontas. Not to mention it isn’t until later that John Smith views her with any humanity; he characterizes her simply as a beautiful savage, not an equal.

-pik

And the fact that Pocahontas’ features and body was based on a woman who was only *half* Native American (her other parent was a non-Native) shows how committed Disney feels to making characters that actually look like they belong to the ethnic group they’re representing. (They don’t feel committed at all, if you wonder.)

"It worries me how racist the Disney fandom is. Seriously, someone brings up the fact that Frozen has no POC and the racist people come out of the woodworks. It’s also upsetting that a lot of people don’t want more POC in the line up"

As and it’s also quite upsetting that whenever PoC are represented in Disney movies, they’re either; 1. Sexualised beyond recognition (the real Pocahontas was 12 and the original Esmeralda was a shy 15-year old).2. Given roles where the entire plot is that they sooner or later will be turned into animals (The Princess and The Frog, Brother Bear, The Emperor’s New Groove). 3. “White-washed” (all the characters in Frozen are remarkably blonde/fair-skinned, and as a Norwegian person I can testify that almost nothing from the Sami culture is visible in the movie).
But Disney handled the Mulan story brilliantly. However, I think it’s very sad that almost all the Disney role models PoC could’ve had either are over-sexualised or turned into animals. A study has shown that white people usually empathise less with black people (and also believe that they are less capable of feeling pain), which means that there’s a fair chance that white people have some of the same prejudices against other PoC. So yeah. Not having PoC in Disney movies is just one small part of a much bigger picture, where PoC aren’t seen as actual humans, with actual feelings and actual integrity. (Besides, how disgusting isn’t it that the story of Pocahontas has been made into a Disney movie? The actual story is said to have been horrifying - full of sexual abuse, rape, murder and exploitation.)


It’s awkward because Esmerelda wasn’t even a proper gypsy she was switched at birth with Quasimodo and stolen by gypsies

Well, then that leaves Disney with one less representation of PoC (although she lived like a “gypsy” and in most ways was a “gypsy”). I guess they wanted to avoid shaming Esmeralda’s “gypsy” (or Roma/Romani) parents for having kidnapped her, so instead they literally pushed ALL the racist buttons they could. It’s a common misunderstanding that Roma/Romani people kidnap children (shame on you, Victor Hugo), but the truth is that a remarkable amount of “gypsies” have blonde hair and fair skin. It’s also a common misunderstanding that Roma/Romani women are seductive, flirtatious, sensual and that they literally would do anything if they could get money for it. The sad truth is that an enormous amount of effort has gone into slut-shaming Roma/Romani women who didn’t want to sleep with self-entitled men. Disney obviously didn’t find a good balance when they tried to portray Esmeralda and her culture.

So true.

Do you…guys even realize where Frozen is set? Not all places have a noticeable mix. You go to certain parts of the world and start demanding white characters or poc characters and you’re going to get weird looks.

Arendelle is not a real place. It’s a fictional, magical land filled with trolls and also features a talking snowman. If you also look at the original tale, there were dark skinned characters within the story. Try again.

Frozen is set in Iceland (that’s the one, yeah?). They made up a town to go with a country. You look at any Disney movies and they stick with what the characters would look like in that time period and setting. No, it wouldn’t have common to see poc hundreds of years ago outside of slave quarters. Not exactly kid friendly. I haven’t read the story so I don’t really have a comment for that.
Edit: Scandinavia. Still stands. What makes or breaks a story is whether or not its believable. You set a story in Scandinavia and expect every sort of representation and your going to be disappointed, as much as you’d hope to see common US features set in a Chinese movie.

It’s also important to realize that Disney has the option to not set stories in places and times where everyone is white. Just look at “The Princess and the Frog”! It’s based on a Grimm fairytale, but set in a more modern New Orleans. Granted, Disney didn’t exactly handle the race in that in the best of ways, but it’s still showing that they have strayed from their typical format before, but went right back to it for Tangled and Frozen. No, “white” shouldn’t be a monolith any more than “POC”, but when virtually every white person can point to someone in a Disney film who resembles them, but people who aren’t white are lucky to be able to find a background character in “the black Disney movie” or “the Native American Disney movie” or “the Asian Disney movie” who maybe shares a characteristic? It’s a problem of representation.
African people, not just slaves, have been in Scandinavia for centuries, even before when Frozen is supposedly set. So, to not have any even in the background which is where they stuck enough people who weren’t “conventionally pretty” that they could argue for representation there? It’s worrying because more than just white kids watch these movies and they shouldn’t only be able to find themselves in the one movie that is designated for “their” race.


Because the Vikings took many people (slaves, friends, wives, husbands, adopted children etc.) with them to Scaninavia, not only white people existed in that part of the world - not even in the medieval ages/the Viking age. And also, it is important to note how for example the Norwegian government have degraded Sami people and forced them to get rid of their own culture (for several centuries). Up until only a few decades ago, it was literally FORBIDDEN to speak the Sami language in Norwegian schools. It is truly amazing that the Sami culture still lives today, as the Norwegian government made serious attempts at forcibly removing it. Many Sami people have experienced tremendous pain because of what they experienced during their childhood/the pressure towards becoming “completely Norwegian”. Even today, there are Sami teenagers in Norway who would deny having Sami ancestors, because they see the Sami people as stupid, uneducated and ridiculous. Btw, Frozen is set in Norway. Not in some general part of Scandinavia, but in Norway. We have a town called Arendal here, you know. Quite similar to Arendelle (which is easier for the American audience to pronounce). Many of the backgrounds in the movie are very similar to Norwegian places. Not all Sami people look the same. Still, how about giving at least ONE of the characters dark hair and/or tanned skin? Because, you know, Sami people look like that too. Besides, they’ve never lived in castles where there are beautiful paintings on the walls. The traditional Sami clothes don’t even resemble the clothes most of the characters wear.Seriously, the representation of Sami people and Sami culture in Frozen is close to 0. Disney is shitty at representing minorities in an accurate way.

Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man  and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York.    Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.

Andrews was arrested in April  2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.

*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*

The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.

FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says. 

Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”. 

Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

Police planting crack to lock up Black people is no conspiracy theory. It’s American History (1980-present).

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”
