This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!
WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!
SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.
THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.
Tumblr and Puns
Its horrible that we live in a world where this is happening
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN TELLING PEOPLE FOREVER BUT NOBODY BLOODY LISTENS
I thought this was common knowledge.
Best lesson from a Disney movie
This is an underrated movie
This is a grossly underrated movie.
Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.
I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”
You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women.
And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog.
So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes.
Also? She’s based on a real person. A real woman who is 91 and is still cooking in her kitchen. She’s still widely respected in the culinary community, she’s fed presidents, she’s had songs written about her and her restaurants. She’s 91, and she still wakes up every morning to run things, because she still believes in hard work and good food. And if you don’t think that’s truly fantastic, then you can just fuck right off.
i’ve never seen anyone complain about tiana as a character. i think the problem most people have with the whole frog business is that when they FINALLY got a black disney princess, she isn’t actually, physically, a black woman for most of the movie, but an animal, which is rather less-than-ideal as far as representation.
of course, i’m not black myself so i can’t really speak to the opinions of the people who are most directly affected, but that’s the impression i get.
To stress on Shabnam’s point, people LOVE her character. Her character is so well done and so well developed, and she’s a fantastic role model for girls no matter who they are, and to a brief extent, she’s important for black girls, too. But seriously, the problem has only been representation. You can’t tell the whole world that you got a black princess and then barely have her blackness present throughout the film. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Disney has a really shitty history of doing this, whether it’s by doing a poor representation of an ethnic/racial group by butchering the culture by using stereotypes and false information only (Mulan and Pocahontas) or by turning them into animals (Princess and the Frog, Brother Bear). That’s the only problem. Like yo, if you made an Indian princess for me and all the Indian girls out there only to have her turn into a damn tiger for 95% of the movie, I’d be pretty pissed off, too.
been in an artistic funk for the past few hours so drew a Peach real quick.
How about some love for a good police officer?
Officer Gaetano Acerra
Responded to a call where a 13 year old boy didnt want to live in his home anymore. He found out that the family couldnt afford a bed or much else for the teen.
So he bought him one. A big queen sized one.
He also bought him a Tv and someone donated a Wii, so now they play whenever Officer Gaetano Acerra has a chance
He also plans to get him a dresser, mirror, and a hamper. Among other things he needs but cannot afford.
People. They’re not ALWAYS a bunch of bastards.
The corruption needs to go.
This guy can stay.
THIS IS THE CUTEST SHIT IN THE UNIVERSE SHUT THE FUCK UP
OH MY FUCKING GOD. THIS THE CUTEST FUCKING THING EVER.
