So CNN just showed a report on the royal visit to New Zealand, which not only actively mocked the cultural traditions of the Maori, comparing the haka to the mating dance of the emu, but also denigrated the cultural traditions of many other groups as being ‘native’ and generally silly. It’s this kind of shoddy journalism and blatant racism that perpetuates an idea of multiculturalism being some kind of childish joke and trivialises the identity of 15% of NZ’s population. If you want to do something about it, there is a complaint here, and the petition associated with it here.  .

SIGNAL BOOST

CNN (and Jeanne Moos, the reporter)…just…really. We’re talking about different cultures! Be respectful, or don’t report anything at all.

CW Doesn’t Want Your “Husbands”… But Will Pick Up “Backpackers”
Last year The CW launched an online distribution platform called CW Seed. As the name implies, this online-only channel was intended to operate as a seeder pipeline. Web series could be produced relatively inexpensively and popular shows with proven concepts could be drafted up to the majors by landing a spot on The CW itself.
CW kicked off their online channel with four projects. One of of those was Husbands, created by Brad Bell and Jane Espenson, a show we’ve written a lot about here at TheBacklot. Another web series was called Backpackers.

So… setting aside Husbands, their actually most popular option, for a show about two straight guys travelling the world looking to get laid, because the latter has a “broader-based appeal”. That’s just great.

I actually like Husbands. Backpackers just doesn’t appeal to me, especially with their main poster (I’m guessing) being two guys and a woman’s ass cheeks in between them. The dude with the glasses is just creepy.

Spartacus Season 3…

To tell you guys the truth, watching this season was difficult. It wasn’t that I knew the characters would die (minus Nagron! :3). My discomfort comes mainly from the episodes where the rebels are in Sinuessa.

Season 2, we hear/see how the Romans treat their slaves. Crucifixion, rape, objectification. There’s sort of a clear line between who’s a Roman and who’s a rebel. Yet in Season 3, this line’s muddled.

Example: Rebels overtake Sinuessa. Most immediately take to torturing/dehumanizing Romans. Justified? Yes, in a way - they’ve been treated like that, so why not reciprocate?

Yet, there’s the “you’ve become what you’re fighting against.” Crixus and Naevia took pleasure in having two Romans fight, with swords, over food. Nemetes raped and tortured Fabia, even offering her to Caesar. How are they no different than the Romans?

And then my feelings get even more twisted. I couldn’t stomach watching Crixus and the others torture Roman citizens, but when Spartacus hosted the games with Roman soldiers, I was all for it. It could be that I’m emotionally invested in Nasir, who believes he’s lost Agron. It could be that Tiberius was among those doomed to die in the games. Or it could be that instead of Roman citizens, Spartacus and the rebels fought against Roman soldiers, men used to fighting with sword and shield.

Why does this set up for April 2014 Bello magazine seem so familiar?? 

Oh that’s right, I know why: 

oh and

Thanks media. 

Ya’ll can put a tanned white girl on the cover in color, but g-d forbid someone with some melanin isn’t in black and white. whatever. 

So tired of this so called “artistic shit” they so afraid of brown and black people upsetting they precious white customers. They probably do black and white because they overexpose black people  all the time. Trying to act like it don’t matter when it comes to black people and photography.

and nobody so much as gave it a second glance

When I say “please don’t take a picture of me” it’s not because I’m being bitchy and stubborn, it’s because if I see that picture I will seriously feel so bad about myself and think I am the ugliest thing on earth and sink a little deeper into self consciousness and hatred.
