such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.

It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.

I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.

i have no use for “”queer-inclusive fiction”” that doesnt include bisexuals i dont have time for that shit anymore. gays and lesbians have SO much stuff marketed towards them and all bisexuals get is biphobic remarks made by fictional gays and lesbians leading 2 real life gays and lesbians and straight ppl being even more biphobic than before. im done with the queer community excluding bisexual ppl absolutely fuckin done

(Not Disney related, sorry. But cartoon related!) Checked your tag, and I didn't see anything. Any thoughts on The Book of Life?

the animation looks really cool, not sure about anything else yet… I think if it does really well it will likely influence other film companies into pushing more Latin@ inclusive plots etc…

having two dudes fight over a beautiful girl isn’t exactly the sort of progressive plot narrative I bite my nails in anticipation for, though, even if the ending ends up being some plot-twisty “woo hoo she chooses/saves the person herself” thing or, whatever

I don’t have good feelings about it from the trailer. For one, it’s being marketed for Halloween, and the conflation of el Día de los Muertos and Halloween is problematic to begin with. Secondly, the skull design seems like it’s being co-opted into a kinda… zombie-ish thing? Could be wrong, but that’s what I picked up from the trailer. Others have said it looks pretty white-ifyied. Yes, there are many white Latin@s. However, if there’s going to be a movie that’s specifically set with Latin@ imagery and characters, it would be damn nice if they didn’t play favorites with light skin.

I would likely be blown away if it was a culturally sensitive film in totality, tbh

we’ll see I guess!

The movie is being created and produced by two Mexicans jsyk.

I am a bit disappointed that this is being marketed to Halloween, but I believe it’s to try and make it more USAfriendly (still gross, but not done under the thoughts of white people thinking Dia de Los Muertos is the same as Halloween, though it might unfortunately spread it)

Yeah… I would say… let’s keep an open mind until it comes out! I can certainly see where some parts of the trailer/marketing are questionable so far, but I don’t get the feeling that it’s a total throwaway the way some movies have been.

this moment was so sad.

black girls are human beings

man i used to really not like her. tumblr showed me the way

I felt that last comment

black girls are vulnerable. we have feelings. we dont always care what others think, but what they say can have an affect on us. no one wants to let us live. i can only imagine if my words were on a scale as large as hers, how difficult it would be.

She’s always bashed, criticized, made fun of, and her words and sentiments are almost always dismissed. People look at her and don’t take her seriously and it’s completely unfair.
