FOX’s ‘Red Band Society’, Starring Octavia Spencer, Takes Down Teen Sterotypes

RED BAND SOCIETY - nurse jacksonSeveral fall television pilots are already available on Hulu, so I sat down and watched one of the more intriguing fall television offerings: FOX’s hour-long comedy Red Band Society. With Octavia Spencer starring, the show appears to be Glee meets The Fault in Our Stars(without the singing for the most part) highlighting the lives of a handful of teens and hospital personnel who work in the…

Stagnant Sci-Fi Genre Needs Less ‘Sharknado’, More Trek’s Uhuras and ¬X-Files Scullys

SCIFI - ripleyScience fiction media has traditionally been a great place for representation. By definition, the genre has one foot in the probable and one foot in reality. Nichelle Nichols’ Uhura on Star Trekwas famously one of the first significant roles in Sci-fi for a woman of color. Her role broke boundaries in 1966. About a decade later, in 1979, Sigourney Weaver became another iconic non-default science…

Q

Anonymous asked:

I'm assuming you're Black? If you are, thank you for being the only Black person I know that is not being racist towards White people. I am Black and I find it so ridiculous and shameful when other Black people act racist and think their actions are justified. Oh and also thank you for featuring Asians on your blog! All races matter! : )

Lol no i’m not black i’m white :) but I do agree with what you are saying I think everyone should just get along. I think that nobody should be racist to any race. I think that yes people have the right to be angry about certain situations but not directly to everyone in that specific race. Yes people of different races may be racist towards each other but you should not be mad at everyone of that race because of it.  For example some white people may be racist but not all are. And the reason why I post so many things about that stuff is because I agree that it is wrong. And woo asians. And i try to post all cultures. Yes all races matter ! :D

Not the Symbol of Your Revolution: The Black Body is Not A Cure-All

Not the Symbol of Your Revolution: The Black Body is Not A Cure-All

Mike Brown with familyRapper J.Cole released a single last week with the photo of Michael Brown laying in the street, blood streaming from his head, as the cover art for the track. Not only was this a blatant disregard of the family’s request to the media to stop circulating the image but it was also further use of black body to send a message.

Though I’m sure his intentions were to show solidarity and speak against…

Let’s be honest, you’ve probably seen the beautifully made up doll-like face associated with the name FKA Twigs and wondered what or who this is.

In Case of Emergency, Hit Retweet: Are We Helping Ferguson Stay Alive?

In Case of Emergency, Hit Retweet: Are We Helping Ferguson Stay Alive?

There is not a corner of the Internet you can go to where you won’t hear about the shooting of Michael Brown. A college freshman who was gunned down by an unnamed (really? No one knows his name?) police officer only days before he was to start his first day of college. The few few facts that most agree on: 1. Brown was unarmed, 2. SEVERAL people witnessed Brown being gunned down, 3. It’s…

Stop Half-Assing Female Superheroes: Lucy and Guardians’ Gamora Don’t Fill Representation Gap

Stop Half-Assing Female Superheroes: Lucy and Guardians’ Gamora Don’t Fill Representation Gap

Give us a female superhero movie, we said, and we got Lucy, a half-assed attempt at delivering a female superhero. I’ve been vocal before about giving us a female superhero movie, because, apparently, if Marvel isn’t going to give us the movie, no one is (DC appears to be finally hopping on the superhero movie series train with Wonder Woman—we’ll see how that goes).SUPERHERO - DC Wonder Woman

Lucy’s story begins when the…
