"Hollywood is great at coming up with excuses for not casting people of color. Filmmakers and studios argue that non-white faces don’t sell overseas, that they’re too distracting, that they’re tough for white audiences to relate to, that they’re “historically inaccurate” (for period pieces) or “unfaithful to the source material” (for adaptions of fictional properties).

So it’s disappointing, if not terribly surprising, that when a major filmmaker finally gets his hands on a project that demands non-white stars, he goes ahead casts white stars anyway. The roles of Moses and Ramses were famously played by Yul Brynner and Charlton Heston in 1956′s The Ten Commandments. It’d be nice to think we’ve progressed past that kind of whitewashed casting now, but apparently it’s just not true.”


There’s a tune that you’ve probably heard throughout your life. It’s nine notes long, and it’s almost always used to signal that something vaguely Asian is happening or is about to happen.

You know what I’m talking about. The tune’s most prominent role is probably in that 1974 song, “Kung Fu Fighting.” It comes in right as Carl Douglas is singing that anthemic “Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah.”

The tune is ubiquitous. And like many things that are just in the air, few ever ask where it came from. But we did.

"you can’t be just friends with people of the gender you’re attracted to"
myth actually true. i, as a bisexual, can confirm that i have no friends.

pansexuals spend their lives in solitude, with only rocks for company

meanwhile asexuals are friends with everyone. literally every single person on the planet. i do not know how i remember so many names
