I guess what I really wonder is if when asked what’s up with his casual racism Matt Stone says, “Well, my wife’s black, so….” and she chimes in “Yeah, it’s never bothered me! Everyone needs to lighten up.”

I’m pretty sure Matt has never mentioned anything about his wife’s ethnicity or skin colour in any interview ever. It would be such an easy, cheap answer to any questions regarding racism but he has never gone there, which I think is cool.

Also, it’s obvious from South Park, the Book of Mormon and their commentaries that they take racism seriously and don’t just tell people to ‘lighten up’.

He does however use his own ethnicity to bullet proof against antisemitism accusations sometimes.

It’s obvious from South Park and The Book of Mormon that, like, 40% of their humor is based on racist jokes and tropes. I believe they “take racism seriously” in that their message is generally that white people are oblivious and racism is pervasive and f’d up, but they do racist things 100% of the time in trying to convey that message, so what’s the point? It’s anti-racism for white people. I just don’t understand how Matt Stone’s wife could be down for that.

What you refer to as ‘racist jokes’ are actually jokes ON racism. They ridicule the idea of racism and racist people. There’s a huge difference. The person who’s being racist in the show is never one that the audience is supposed to empathise with, he’s the one who’s being laughed at. The message is always anti-racist. That’s what satire is, pointing out what’s wrong in society and people by holding a mirror against the issue and ridiculing it.

If anything, Matt must have gained even more perspective and understanding on the issue of racism from his relationship with Angela.

Yeah, like I said, anti-racism for white people. Holding up a mirror to expose oblivious racist behavior by white people only works when white people are watching. For everyone else a racist character is just a racist character. If you feel enriched by sitting through 20 mins of Cartman’s racist jokes just to get to Kyle’s 2 minute call-out speech then good for you, must be nice to be that unaffected. For people who are actually targets of the racist jokes it doesn’t matter whether we are supposed to hate the character who made them or what the moral of the story is. The moral of the story is that those jokes happened and we had to hear them.

"I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority… We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.” - Beyoncé for OUT Magazine

This just in: we are all the same. In other news: the ‘A’ in LGBTQIA stands for ‘ally’.

#natural hair #locs
luvlocs:

There is a myth that a person can not comb out Locs. WELL I’m here to tell you….that info is False! This young lady had sister Locs for 6 years, she had them combed out last summer. So with patience any and all can be done.


I wouldn’t say “any and all” …whether or not your locs can be combed out depends on your hair texture and how your locs were started/maintained. Sisterlocks are gonna be easier to comb out because they’re smaller and get retwisted on the reg. If your locs are really big or messy/freeform, combing them out is way less likely and will involve a lot of cutting…

Ilana Glazer & Abbi Jacobson

So who’s the Laverne and who’s the Shirley in this relationship?
Glazer: I would be Laverne, and Abbi would be Shirley. But we’re always rolling our eyes at ourselves for being Chandler and Joey. Abbi is Chandler and i’m Joey.

[x]

I love Broad City—but I could do without the aspect of the show where Ilana is in love with Abbi and Abbi is so straight that the punchline of 30% of the jokes is “Dude, what? I don’t like girls!" I don’t like being in a situation where I’m mad at a character who doesn’t want their friend flirting with them, but here I am.

teenboystuff:

How is it that Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake literally lived together as kids yet Ryan Gosling grew up to be some pro-feminist icon while Justin’s out here talkin about “you can’t stop once you’ve turned me on”. I know y’all had some meaningful pillow talk, what went wrong JT?
