8:58 PMThis is why I hate people sometimes
Okay, so I had to write this online somewhere. In my math class this morning, this girl at my table of 4 was talking with her friend. I didn't hear the whole conversation because I was reading, but here's the end of what I caught, which may not be exact but it's close enough. Girl 1 is the one in my group, while 2 is her friend.
Girl 1: *something about race and media that made me tune in to their conversation*
Girl 2: I know, right? I think it's weird, like -
1: They have movies like Mulan, Alladin -
2: Right? They don't need to change white characters into colored people. [something like that, I only really heard Girl 1, sorry]
1: I know, like I feel like I'm being prejudiced against. Like it's not all white people.
2: No, it's not, it's just some.
1: I know, it's like I didn't do anything -
Yeah, that happened.
Now as a mixed person, I really don't get why these fully white girls didn't understand that COLORED PEOPLE are majority OF THE WORLD. LITERALLY. There's TONS of media outlets with PLENTY of white people, movies made WITH WHITE PEOPLE IN IT (in terms of Disney movies, like they had mentioned, the really major and classic princesses WERE ALL WHITE), and white people on Broadway.
I mentioned the last one because Keke Palmer is the FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN to be Cinderella on Broadway. So what if in the movies she's portrayed as white? If they act well, they should get the role.
Like I'm seething. I was seething earlier too. That just pissed me off SO MUCH. It doesn't help I'm reading a book (called Gilded by Christina Farley) about a Korean girl and I was stuck in her ass-kicking Asian mind.
Yeah. Well that's it. I'm going to post a few shorts and maybe meditate to calm down or something.
