its funny how so many black men openly hated macklemore and no one once said “why are black men so bitter and jealous of macklemore?” but let black women discuss how racist, untalented, and ignorant iggy azalea is and suddenly we’re all bitter black bitches jealous of the poor innocent white girl lmao
There are actual Black people that live their entire lives and don’t say the n-word. Why do non-Black people feel like they, of all people, “need” to lmao? Just to hurt Black people, it is so obvious. They’d rather argue about why they should be able to for 10 years than take 10 seconds to have a heart and realize that it’s not theirs and it hurts when they use it. You are honestly worthless to me if you’re not Black and you use it like.. that’s that, get through it.
There ARE ACTUAL REAL MEN OUT THERE??!
THAT RESPECT WOMEN?
THAT ACCEPT “no” FOR AN ANSWER?
Quick, reblog this everywhere so we can learn and grow as a species!
the fact that this is shocking is saddening.
one of those types of black men that seem to be down for the struggle but spend a lot of time talking about what black women aren’t doing/being/saying/acting like. the kind that want to put you on some pedestal as a “queen” but the second you behave in a way that’s outside the parameters of their idea of black womanhood, you’re snatched off said pedestal and treated like shit. they’re really just agents in white supremacy, cloaked in ankhs and an obsession with ancient egyptian culture.
okay but think about this: dorian isn’t just a mage but a mage from tevinter and a former apprentice to a magister and yet cullen is still sitting down and playing chess/w/e with him and can relax and make jokes and holy shit we’ve come a long way from “i hope your compassion hasn’t doomed us all” and ”mages cannot be treated like people” and “perhaps it’s best to keep our enemies close”
well in all honesty
going from distrusting mages to tolerating mages isn’t that big of a leap in character
it’s hard to pat him on the back for playing nice with Dorian without acting wildOkay but if you’re going to point that out how about also mentioning that a good chunk (if not all) his distrust towards mages at this point stems from suffering mentally, emotional and physical torture thanks to blood mages and demons? And how about mentioning that him chilling with Dorian isn’t the first sign of him working through his PTSD or his hatred of mages instilled into him but the chantry, considering he helps defend the innocent circle mages in da:2 and also knowingly lets Anders operate his clinic?
Are we really going to ignore his character progression from da:o to da:2 by pretending the only actions of his that count are what he said while he was trapped in a demon bubble in the very first game, or what he said to Hawke who he’s literally just met in da:2? Is that what we’re doing?
Because honestly it kinda is a big deal that someone who was likely raised with preinstalled prejudices against mages (thanks to the chantry) and had those prejudices all but proven true to him perosnally in his lifetime happily put them aside to make nice and chill with a tevinter magister.
Oh God I was thinking about this and someone put it all into words for me. There’s nothing to say. Excellent commentary is excellent and deserves a dozen donuts at least.
