White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective.
please let them know.
white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."
Native Filmmakers Shoot Dystopian Drama on Pine Ridge Reservation
It’s 2085 on Pine Ridge. The reservation has been quarantined and borders guarded by the military for 30 years. Sparked by the ramifications of the Keystone XL pipeline, the war between the government and the insurgency lasted for eight years and resulted in the dystopian setting that provides the background for "The People," the inaugural project from Indigene Studios.
Based out of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Indigene Studios was co-founded in April 2014 by Willi White, Oglala Lakota, and Angel White Eyes, Oglala Lakota and Ojibwa.
“This is our way of giving back to our communities but also expressing ourselves,” White said. “Non-Natives always come here and sell the same narrative to the mainstream media. We want to change that narrative and give a voice to the stories that are already here.”
Give. It. To. Me.
White-passing people are only privileged up until the point that someone finds out that they are not racially white.
If a white-passing Syrian person, for example, were to be arrested by police then they would lose their privilege once the police found out that they were Arab.
Whereas, if a white person were to be arrested by the police, their privilege would still exist even after an extended period of interaction with the police.
White-passing people have what I like to call, ‘soft privilege’ in that their privilege will not survive scrutiny by extended periods of interaction with a racist society.
White-passing privilege is built on the erasure of PoC; as long as the actual identity of a PoC who is white-passing is not outed, they will maintain privilege but when it is brought to the attention of a racist community that they are not white, they lose their privilege.
I have more to say but I hope that explains it well enough!
A crash course on non-disney films and studios (sequels not included; list is not exhaustive)
This should be standard knowledge for movielovers
It is a pet peeve of mine when people refer to any animated film as Disney. And by “pet peeve” I mean it makes me want to punch them in the face.
did you just throw my childhood at me
So these are all my films
