College student, Creative writing major (code for, I want to spend my life in my own made up world and have a legitimate excuse). My personality is pretty much the stumble button on google. I like Science fiction, Fantasy, Fashion, teen lit, history, hot guys, Super heroes, Anime, video games, Peanut Butter, bad bitches.
Wow Google, thank you for the stunning support! The effort you put into representing this cause is fantastic! Like, wow, this doesn’t even compare to what you did for the DW 50th!
The Google Doodle usually depicts holidays, fun anniversaries, and exciting events. More serious causes, like remembering 9/11, anti-abuse, and cancer awareness, are represented in a solemn manner with a ribbon at the bottom of the page. The ribbon is a more respectful way for Google to show support than plastering it on every page in the form of a novelty “doodle,” especially when it may be triggering to some Google users.
WTF? Would you have preferred that they made one of the letters into a woman’s grimacing face with a disembodied fist that you can click and drag to punch it? Don’t criticize them for employing some tact.
We have shared quite a bit of conceptual photography over the years, and we love it dearly. The Wonderland project from UK photographer Kirsty Mitchell is a touching and enchanting series bringing a fantasy world to life, and just might be one of our favorite photographers ever!
Let’s talk about how flawless Naomi skin is. Let’s talk about Naomi dragging that journalist when he went awf topic.
this white interviewer aint shit, omg, he really wants her to say, i’m rich and famous so i should shut up about racism. looool. douche. “i’m not here to talk about me, i’m here to talk about balanced diversity.” *continues to try angry black woman trope*
The interviewer tried to taint her credibility doe by bringing up the “angry black woman” trope… he tried it and she wasn’t having it… white interviewers try to do this shit all the time. .. they try deflect and frame the convo around the respectability of a black person in particular black women. . I’m glad she was letting his ass have it…
let’s be real here. naomi is still being extremely diplomatic. she makes it clear that she is not accusing the designers themselves of being racist (though we know that they are) and she isn’t spilling their dirty laundry as a model with as much clout as she has surely could. she is really giving these named designers the chance to become more diverse without being outright shamed. but instead of seeing this diplomacy, people, especially white people, still seem so eager to put the invalidating “angry black woman” label on her. which is simply a cowardly excuse to not confront the obvious racism in the fashion industry
She conducted this quite well and did not allow homeboy to derail for a second. Well done. Its a shame we have to do that so vigorously though. If White folks spent half as much energy listening as they did attempting to find reasons not to we’d be in much better shape.
