and the first computer animated film featuring a black protagonist, who is visibly black ..and not voiced by a white person, nor an animal, nor a side kick, nor a villain or comic relief is being screened at Cannes…
also the first ever film about black people in Medieval England even though they were the first inhabitants..and no it’s not a fantasy film or a comedy..
also at Cannes..Black romance films without the Christian ethos..
this is a wonderful year in cinema.
-a friend says something racist/ignorant to me-
"if you have a wide nose and big lips then you probably aren’t mixed and are just full black"
so apparently, if you are black you have to have a wide nose, but if you don’t you are most likely mixed. even though we literally come in all colours and features.
and their own mother has the balls to say
"you shouldn’t be sorry, that’s just your observation"
its not an observation, an observation is an observable pattern, something that reigns true
this is a statement made by sheer ignorance
