White privilege is having people actually care that you’re depressed, self-harm, or have an eating disorder.

Here’s something I wanted to talk about every time a movie comes out that shows us an “empowered” White girl and says how she’s some sort of role model for all women because she shows that women don’t have to be fragile or delicate.

As much as I loved Brave and despised Snow White and the Huntsman

quicksummary:

A heartwarming tale about how even if you’ve got a Christian Kenyan father, an atheistic white American mother, an Indonesian Muslim stepfather, a biracial half sister and you’ve had  to fight for literally everything you’ve ever gotten in your life, a whole bunch of folks are going to call you a Muslim terrorist Nazi socialist elitist who “only won because he’s black”.

White privilege is when whites spout neo-Nazism and white supremacy, it’s called freedom of speech, but when PoCs discuss personal struggles against racism that makes whites look bad, it’s called “reverse racism.”

“Reverse racism” in quotes because what even.

Paris.– US actor Danny Glover, who plans an epic next year on Haitian independence hero Toussaint-Louverture, said he slaved to raise funds for the movie because financiers complained there were no white heroes.

“Producers said ‘It’s a nice project, a great project… where are the white heroes?’” he told the press during a stay in Paristhis month for a seminar on film.

“I couldn’t get the money here, I couldn’t get the money in Britain. I went to everybody. You wouldn’t believe the number of producers based in Europe, and in the States, that I went to,” he said.

D”The first question you get, is ‘Is it a black film?’ All of them agree, it’s not going to do good in Europe, it’s not going to do good in Japan.

“Somebody has to prove that to be a lie!”, he said. “Maybe I’ll have the chance to prove it.”

“Toussaint,” Glover’s first project as film director, is about Francois Dominique Toussaint Louverture (1743-1803), a former slave and one of the fathers of Haiti’s independence from France in 1804, making it the first black nation to throw off imperial rule and become a republic.

The uprising he led was bloodily put down in 1802 by 20,000 soldiers dispatched to the Caribbean by Napoleon Bonaparte, who then re-established slavery after its ban by the leaders of the French Revolution.

Due to be shot in Venezuela early next year, the film will star Don Cheadle, Mos Def, Wesley Snipes and Angela Bassett.

Danny Glover, one of the most famous black actors in America, had to go to Venezuela to get the funding for a movie with “no white heroes.” 

George Lucas had to pay for Red Tails himself.

This is how hollywood works

EDIT: And some of you motherfuckers are still getting it twisted.

The couple of people responding to my Danny Glover/Toussaint post with things like “well prove to Hollywood there’s an audience!” are missing the point.

It’s not about the fact that there aren’t enough black people who’d want to go see this movie.

It’s entirely about the fact that there is a fundamental deficiency in the psychology of the average white American viewer.

It’s about the same thing that makes white people unable to recognize the humanity of black people 

The same thing that made all those dumbass kids assume Rue and Thresh were white

And the very same thing that makes people think any tv show with more three black characters is a “black show.”

The problem isn’t with black people, black actors or black stories, the problem has always been with y’all.
