I love the fact that when you queue something the reblog button turns green with a lil clock on it. 

It’s so cute. Unfortunately that shit goes away once you refresh the page to see new posts on your dash. 

Wouldn’t it be nice if the reblog button stayed green for posts you’ve already reblogged, like posts you’ve already liked?

Like, that’s what I’ve been saying for a while now. Like WHY would you have it be green to ONLY have it revert to normal after you refresh the page? There is literally no point in that. The color should just stay there. 

that’s why we have xkit~~

Just saw the news on the jungle book live action adaptation, and I must say, that besides Mowgli and Bagheera, everyone else if not brown. I am the last person to be racist, or to hate Idris Elba or Lupita Nyong’o, both are talented and marvellous actors in their own…

Okay, the reason why I don’t personally like the way that this was said, even though I ultimately agree with the point, is because the OP has decided that instead of reprimanding the white casters and producers (and owners) of this film for continuing to ignore the racial implications of their settings, they are going to make this an issue of blackness.

Which is not what this is about. This is about whiteness and how it keeps white people from critically determining what race their characters should be, and how that intersects with the Indian/brown identity. How is the OP going to name two black actors in the film and say that this is too many black people for a brown film, as if those actors make up a cast of 2/2 when in reality it’s 2 of hundreds??? Especially since, without even looking, I can guarantee that this film will have tons more white actors than black ones—yet the OP mentions the two black figures as if they are the ones stealing brown representation.

The OP presents blackness as a foil here against their own racial struggle, and that’s not what this issue is about. That’s a divisive strategy that brown people use in anti blackness all the time, although it doesn’t surprise me, because brown people and other people of color do feel the need to always compare their struggle to the black struggle instead of recognizing their specific struggle in and of itself; “Black people aren’t the only PoC who are racially discriminated against :(((.” And I know the OP didn’t “mean to offend” but sometimes we step on other people’s toes by accident. Why did you have to mention black people—as if we’re getting too much representation—in order to make it clear that brown people also lack representation in the media? It wasn’t necessary, and sorry if you didn’t mean it to be but it’s anti black, and if I were you I would analyze why I felt the need to do that.

Hi, I just wanted to set a few things right. First of all, I did not decide to reprimand or make the blackness an issue. I said, and I quote, “But it should be simultaneously recognized by Disney that you just can’t shove in any non-white actor in your bid to diversify.” I blamed Disney for the casting. I never said, Idris Elba/ Lupita Nyong’o is a bad person for taking this role.

The reason why I stated Elba and Nyong’o is that Disney has simply taken two of the hottest black PoC stars, and made them their front for diversity by casting them into 2 of the main roles, the roles of the foster-mother and antagonist (though some argue he is more an anti-hero-ish character). "What I basically meant was, they’re hiring Idris Elba and Lupita Nyong’o and they’re going to be all, here, you wanted diversification, you got diversification, whereas what we wanted was accuracy as well." If it were two hispanic actors in those roles, I would have mentioned them as well. That was my need to do so.

I do agree that when I wrote it the first time around, I was not clear enough. However, I did clarify the second time around. Again, I quote "But to take the races of the people in the actual story, erase them out and put another race in simply makes me feel bad. Whether it would be Hispanic or far east asian or black wouldn’t matter, it would still feel bad."

I agree. This is completely about white people governing what percentages of other races can be seen. That’s what my whole post was about. But I did not mean to use black struggle as a foil, and as I’ve said before, I’m sorry if I misspoke and made it seem so. 

By putting something I haven’t said into quotes in a manner that makes me seem shallow and juvenile, you make this an us vs. them post when this was anything but, while coming off as condescending to me at the same time. Also, by taking something I’ve said in a sincere manner out of context to make me seem inconsiderate isn’t appreciated either. I’ve set out to put my feelings into words through a considerate, intellectual discussion, and knowing that I’m far from perfect, I’ve apologized in advance and in hindsight as well. I’ve had discussions (as you can see in the notes) with about 2-3 other people, but everyone has been respectful and understanding and not agressive. I would like it if we could do the same.

Just saw the news on the jungle book live action adaptation, and I must say, that besides Mowgli and Bagheera, everyone else if not brown. I am the last person to be racist, or to hate Idris Elba or Lupita Nyong’o, both are talented and marvellous actors in their own right. But it should be simultaneously recognized by Disney that you just can’t shove in any non-white actor in your bid to diversify. Step back and think about it. All of Jungle Book is set in India. There is no end to the talented thespians from India. Why don’t you get them? Why must black exposure come at the cost of brown erasure? What possible excuses can you have? Sheer laziness? Neglect? Apathy? I honestly feel at this point that brown people are not even considered unless it is either for the sake of comedy (read: to be made fun of) or to play villains and terrorists or some effed up white fantasy of how brown people are like, like slumdog millionaire or some shit.

I mean, I honestly don’t want to be mean to anyone, and I’m quite happy with Neel Sethi and Ben Kinglsey. But on the other hand, wouldn’t people be offended if someone took a classic black story and cast it as mostly non-black actors? I don’t know, I just feel very erased.

Okay, so even though this isn’t at all relevant to this blog I kind of want to comment on this because, don’t get me wrong, i feel you and everything and i see where you’re coming from but idk I feel you might be missing something like its making me feel some type of way but i can’t quite put my finger on it.

First off, I get what you’re saying about your feeling of erasure, I understand that and I can relate to that. I mean just take this new Gods of Egypt movie or whatever its called with Batman and that other white guy. I feel you on that. And I agree with you that attention to on specific group of PoC shouldn’t come at the expense of other PoC. I feel you on that as well…

but…

Idk it may be because you termed it as “Black Exposure” that makes me feel a little off because I really don’t see it as such being that its really just two already well known award winning/nominated actors. And maybe its could also be the fact that they’re all voicing animals?? maybe that’s it.

And on top of that, The Jungle Book is set in India but it was written by Rudyard Kipling, the same author of the poem “The White Man’s Burden” which was basically a justification for colonization as the “burden” being to “civilize savages” by imposing western practices, ideals and subsequently racist ideology in nations populated by people of color; basically he did the same thing white people do today saying how we should be grateful for white people colonizing, committing genocide, destroying land for their profit, etc etc because had that not happened then the world wouldn’t be as prosperous as it is today and all that bullshit. So maybe its because of that fact alone that i kinda don’t all the way see it as a classic Indian story because even the old 1967 movie had multiple hints of racism and most obviously anti-blackness. I mean if you look at all of the Disney animated movies from that era, the one set in the jungle with a bunch of apes as important characters, they decide to have Jazz be their style of music contrary to the other musical selections in literally every other Disney film except for Princess and the Frog which coincidentally had black characters and coincidentally they were also all animals for the majority of the film at least.

But all that isn’t to say that they couldn’t possibly have changed that and made this new movie more appropriate and used actual Indian actors to voice the characters of a movie set in India. And I know people are looking at this as a… idk a triumph? for actors of color to be majority cast in this film but it is also very necessary to give credit to each group of PoC specifically instead of being bunched up all into one because PoC identity is too broad and more focus should be put on the idividual instead of generalizing the entire group and looking at one triumph for a PoC as a triumph for all PoC. So I do understand your sentiment

but like i said, i still feel some type of way about it and honestly it could just be the way you worded it so idk

-Elijah

I’m sorry if I offended anyone. That is honestly the last thing I want to do. And it’s completely possible that I’ve worded stuff up wrong, most of the time I cannot get into words what I feel.

Thanks for understanding where I’m coming from. I honestly didn’t know how else to phrase it. What I basically meant was, they’re hiring Idris Elba and Lupita Nyong’o and they’re going to be all, here, you wanted diversification, you got diversification, whereas what we wanted was accuracy as well.

Things hold different values to different people. Maybe, to a lot of people, it won’t matter that the voice actress is English or American or Indian. But to PoC of Indian origin like me, it really does matter, even if it’s just a bunch of animals. My little sister used to beg my parents not to speak too much in front of her friends because she was embarrassed of my parents’ accents (I set her right on that), even though they probably have the most flawless english out of all of her friend’s parents. My mum gets so self-conscious because people are SO condescending to her because she wears a hijab and has an discernable anglo-Indian accent (I don’t know how else to describe it, else I would take the anglo out of there), and my heart breaks for her and I can do nothing. So maybe, even if it’s a bunch of animals, if my little sister’s friends identify my mum with Rakcha rather than the lady with a funny accent, I would be happy.

And yes, Jungle Book was indeed written by Rudyard Kipling, but it was, as everything else by white men, stolen. The story of Mowgli is an old old tale which my great-grandfather said was told to little children in his time, and even way before him, as a way to stop kids from wandering too far and being eaten by wild animals. Kipling just took it, tweaked it, and wrote it in English.

Indians have a weird relationship with the British. On one hand they hate everything to do with colonialism, but on the other, they revel in whatever bits of their lives are British, and the English language takes forefront stage here (it’s the same with French in a lot of regions too, mind). And since I was a precocious child with the sole solace of books, I was made to read vast quantities of Kipling. My point being that I have the knowledge of Kipling being a racist ass, but I’d rather that we reclaim our story.

Furthermore, the point you’re making seems a little bit off to me. Like, on one hand you’re saying that it’s not such a big deal cos it was written by a racist white man and all, and then you’re saying that it’s kind of a triumph of majority PoC casting. Like, well, if it’s a triumph for whatever, it must hold some meaning, right? So like, why is it ok to laud it as a victory for something, but then say it doesn’t really matter because the author wasn’t that nice anyway?

Like, if they took some tales out of the Arabian Nights, and threw in black and brown and arab and hispanic and far east asian PoC actors in there, I would be fine, because yeah, that’s how the Arabian Nights actually is, it’s based on all these stories that were collected during the era of the silk road and these races were actually in the stories. But to take the races of the people in the actual story, erase them out and put another race in simply makes me feel bad. Whether it would be Hispanic or far east asian or black wouldn’t matter, it would still feel bad.

Idk, I hope you see where I’m getting at, and I’m sorry if I misspoke and offended anyone.
