TW: RAPE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Honestly, I always feel like white people can’t shock me anymore by the depths to which they sink in order rationalize their racism but they still always manage. Always. Without fail. Endlessly.
ROMAN POLANSKI HAS AN OSCAR
MARK WAHLBERG HAS TWO OSCAR NOMINATIONS
SEAN PENN HAS AN OSCAR
JOSH BROLIN HAS AN OSCAR NOMINATION
So no, unless you’re a black man, the academy and the rest of the entire fucking world doesn’t give a fuck if you beat or rape a woman or girl. And this is really fucking rich coming from a guy who raped Anna Faris on screen for a joke. But he’s white so it’s ok. And hilarious.
John Lennon abused his first wife and Yoko Ono but he’s still hailed as a Rock and Roll genius/revolutionary.
Jared Leto has an Oscar and he’s an abuser and rapist. Woody Allen is still praised as some kind of god of film making - even by supposed feminists like Cate Blanchett - even though he’s a fucking pedophile. Kirk Douglas won an honorary oscar, and nominated several times even though he is an abusive rapist scumbag (who raped another Oscar nominee too).
White privilege is getting away with being a misogynist rapist scumball because their actions will be ignored/forgotten entirely, or set aside because people and award organizations like their bodies of work.
i had forgotten about this gifset bc its so old so i was reading the first one and i thought he was gonna say something about sean penn being an abuser and they still let him into the oscars. needless to say i am v. disappointedDoesn’t sound like they actual upset at Chris Brown tho. More like they like rubbing that shit in Rihanna’s face. They quite obvious mocking her suffering … Like imagine her hearing this crap.
Today in Black History: March 7, 1965: The first Selma to Montgomery March (“Bloody Sunday”) takes place.
During the 1960s, only small percentages of the large populations of eligible black voters in certain parts of the South could actually vote, even after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Voter registration programs organized by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and other civil rights groups (including the Southern Christian Leadership Conference) were established in these states, but they were met with fierce opposition: during the 1964 “Freedom Summer” campaign, designed to register African-Americans in Mississippi, eighty civil rights workers were beaten by white residents; in one notorious incident, local Klansmen ambushed and murdered three workers as retribution for their efforts in attempting to register and educate disfranchised voters.
In 1965, a voter registration campaign focused in Selma, Alabama, began - at the head of this revived effort was Martin Luther King, Jr., the SNCC, and the SCLC. On March 7, a group of several hundred people set out from Selma on a fifty-four-mile march toward Montgomery, but this protest was stopped short in a brief and violent confrontation (later known as “Bloody Sunday”) between the marchers and state troopers at the Edmund Pettus Bridge. One of the main catalysts for the march, besides the ongoing struggle over voting restrictions, was the killing of Jimmie Lee Jackson by an Alabama State Trooper a week earlier; however, the events of Bloody Sunday garnered more national attention than Jackson’s murder.
As the Selma marchers crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge, they were met by state troopers, who began to shove and beat them, while another detachment fired tear gas into the crowd. Among those injured in the attack was John Lewis, who escaped the beatings with a fractured skull. These acts of violence against peaceful protesters were widely publicized and highly influential in turning public opinion in favor of the Civil Rights Movement. Following the second ceremonial march, conducted on March 9, a white minister named James Reeb was severely injured by KKK members and later died after the hospital in Selma turned him away; the death of a white minister captured the public’s attention even more securely. When Martin Luther King, Jr. led a third march on March 21, 25,000 people gathered in Montgomery to hear him speak and deliver his “How Long, Not Long” speech, and after President Johnson witnessed the events of Bloody Sunday on television, he was compelled to introduce a voting rights bill to Congress and did so on March 15; he also delivered his own speech to a joint session of Congress in which he quoted an anthem of the Civil Rights Movement - “we shall overcome” - in an obvious and momentous display of support for the movement.
