ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

Reblogging for the commentary holy shit

This is gonna be so good. She’s sooo cute!

grown. ass. men.

you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.

they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

CNN confirms this to be true by an anonymous caller to a local radio station who wasn’t there but has first hand knowledge of what happened.

Why is the image of  a Black couple the greatest threat to the Marvel Universe?

Why are all the prominent Black hero’s at Marvel (Storm, Falcon, American Patriot. Blade, Miles Morales the Ultimate Spiderman ) in a relationship with person of another race? Even the gay couples.

Yet the marriage of  Storm and Panther was a mistake.

 What is it about Black sexuality that makes it easier to feature all white girls in a comic that features a Black teenage Spiderman as if no Black girls exist in New York?

 

Repost this until Marvel gets over its fear of Black people in love

I HAVE ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS!

It’s almost as if relationships and love only matter if it contains at least ONE white person.

It’s almost as if two black people in love is a threat to white people.

It’s almost as if white couples are allowed, but black couples are an anathema.

CLAYTON •The grand jury that is hearing evidence in the Michael Brown shooting death has one black man and two black women on the panel, and six white men and three white women.

ThePost-Dispatch reported Wednesdaythat the grand jury had three black people, but the gender information is new. The gender information was supplied by Paul Fox, director of judicial administration for St. Louis County Circuit Court.

Fox said Judge Carolyn Whittington will hear a motion Monday morning about what else to release about the makeup of the grand jury, including age and hometown or zip code.

Majority White grand jury to represent a case in a majority Black city….

So im sure they chose to those from the county so they wont have a direct “bias”

Ferguson City Councilwoman Kim Tihen

One officer, Kim Tihen, allegedly “struck [Davis] in his head with a closed fist and hit [him] in the head with handcuffs.

Officer Tihen, for her part, is no longer with the Ferguson Police Department. In 2012, after four years on the force, she won election to the city council, becoming one of the six-person body’s five white members. 

At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened. Surveillance video of the jail was destroyed before the trial.
