Taika Waititi behind Disney script 'Moana' - Entertainment - NZ Herald News

moanaswaialiki:

Some interesting news about the screenwriter for Moana. For those worried about accurate representation of POC perhaps this will be some reassurance? Time can only tell, let’s hope Disney does Polynesians proud and displays an accurate and non-offensive portrayal!

SERIOUSLY I’M SO PUMPED.

this is me talking at the rally a little after i got hurt by that cop
right after this we went back up to the VC’s office and we noticed there wasn’t much security around the fire escape so we climbed up there (despite the unisafe ‘security’ guard who was trying to drag me down the side) for 10 or 15 minutes
anyway i’m really sore now but i think it was worth it, some of my friends were hurt worse than me by cops and security and office staff (????????????? unbelievable) but i’m just glad everyone is mostly okay
anyway fuck the police and fuck that security guard who tried to pull me off a building and fuck administration for making university inaccessible except for white ppl with stolen capital

Students criticising unfair university practices = so threatening to public safety you need two van fulls of cops, apparently.

Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless.

"What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)

We should also note that Black Women are perceived and fetishized as hyper sexual. Which is why mainstream feminists willingly call Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, and Katy Perry revolutionary and in charge of their bodies meanwhile demonizing Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce.

But let’s talk about Jamie Brewer.
She’s awesome.
Jamie Brewer made her television debut on American Horror Story. Prior to her transition to acting on camera she was a theatrical actress. She has not left the stage, however, and still continues her training through theater and through improvisation at 'The Groundlings Theatre and School' .
Being an individual with Down Syndrome Jamie has made it a point to be active in the Down Syndrome community. Jamie was the youngest to ever be elected President of the ARC of Fort Bend Chapter. From there, she was appointed to the State of Texas ARC Board, then elected to the Executive Board as Treasurer. Jamie was then asked to serve on the ARC Governmental Affairs Committee for the State of Texas. She spoke with Senators at the Texas State Capitol to persuade them to pass the law for Texas to abolish using the “R” word from state legislation, and regarding the needs of people with disabilities in Texas. Texas now uses “Intellectual Developmental Disability” in their legislation. 1
Brewer is involved with a several non-profit organizations, including DSALA, DSiAM, BTAP, National Down Syndrome Congress, American Association of People with Disabilities of the United States, and Civitan International.

QUEEN.

The True Supreme, IMHO
