A young black girl decided to not bleach her skin after seeing the success of Lupita Nyong’o.

Lupita Nyong’o was inspired to be an actress after seeing Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple.

Whoopi Goldberg realized she could BE an actress after seeing Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek

This post makes me so happy

Quevanzhané Wallis as Annie: YOU'RE RUINING MY CHILDHOOD, ANNIE IS A RED-HEADED WHITE GIRL, NOT SOME GIRL FROM THE "GHETTO" THIS IS STUPID, IM NOT RACIST I SWEAR
Rooney Mara as Princess Tiger Lily: Ah yes, she was perfect for the role. What do you mean whitewashing? She is a good actress. Native American women don't try hard enough to go into acting, that's their fault. Make your own movies if that's what you want to see.

"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"

"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"

"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"

SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.
