his favorite thing is to play with the green streak of hair above my ear. >.<

""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///
(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)
And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blonde
And literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and such
So please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.
Boom de yada
Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”
the funny thing ist though, even if a character is described as having dark skin, dark hair and brown eyes, theyre still being cast as white
It’s also worth noting that the fact that a black person has blonde or red hair doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve got a white ancestor kicking around in their family tree. Recent genetic studies suggest that the gene that codes for blonde hair in black African populations is completely different from the gene that codes for blonde hair in white European populations, and that blond hair among Aboriginal Australian populations is connected to yet a third gene. The same trait has independently arisen at least three times in humanity’s generic history, and only one of those cases is linked with light skin per se.
(Interestingly, this also means that the widspread belief that blonde hair is part of a complex of adaptations to low-sunlight regions is probably false, since populations that live in the sunniest parts of the world have their own blonde-hair mutations unrelated to the European one.)
Watching cartoons with Molly while Zion naps and WF snoozes…. pretty good start to Sunday! We’re planning to go to the art museum later since it’s free day!
"Jalan Atthirari Anni." Moon of My Life
"Shekh Ma Shieraki Anni." My Sun and Stars
How do you see all these movies with the kiddos????
Well, Molly was with her grandparents today (they took her to a different movie haha we saw them at the theater before ours started)… um… I don’t know we just, go? Molly sits nicely with Daddy and Zion nurses and falls asleep. Or Molly is at her grandparents, and Zion nurses and falls asleep.
We watch a LOT of movies.
This needs to be brought to attention IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
I don’t even understand what they’re expecting anymore. if they can lie to us to our face and us KNOW the truth, what power do we have , then?
- watched Wall-E with Molly first thing and fell asleep again. Oops.
- WF took our car to the mechanic to get it looked at for an oil leak, he walked back
- hung out, talked about Marie Antoinette because WF watched it last night
- Zion napped
- Molly ate nachos for lunch then watched some Pajanimals
- WF’s parents picked Molly up for a fun afternoon
- WF called the mechanics and they weren’t going to be able to to get to the car today so we made an appointment for next week
- WF, Zion and I walked down to the shop where the car was
- picked up the car then had lunch at California Pizza Kitchen
- saw The Maze Runner
- came home, I cleaned up the house a little
- Molly got dropped off at 7
- and now bedtime - she didn’t have a nap at all today so early bedtime for her since she does not and will not sleep in
- it’s been a good day :)
Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2)
Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace
