eccentricmango asked: I feel like brown people have to learn to love themselves and keep ourselves up, it doesn't seem like anyone else is going to do it without fetishizing brown bodies in a gross, disgusting way.

Hollywood has no problem
Finding people of color
To play terrorists, thugs,
And mindless villains
But casting one to be a hero
Those roles are reserved
For the actors and actresses
Who are the best for the part
But why does that always translate to
These roles are white only
with a red cup full of Birthday Cake flavored vodka
wearing a headdress
made of neon Dollar Store chicken feathers.
You’re half naked in a grassy field
with drugstore lipstick smeared under your eyes
and wearing moccasins from Urban Outfitters.
You can’t wait for Coachella
so you can finally smoke a peace pipe in a tepee
and find your Spirit Animal.
You think Native American culture is so beautiful
and clumsily show it with your
hashtags on tumblr and Instagram.
But when actual Indigenous people tell you that
Gypsy, Squaw and Red Injun are all racist slurs
Headdresses are sacred
and war paint on your white face is insulting
“I’m just appreciating your beautiful culture!
I’m 1/16th Cherokee.”
Ignoring the fact that running around
naked in the woods on shrooms
will not connect you with any tribe
and that your great great great great grandmother
along with the rest of the Cherokee people
never wore headdresses. "1/16th Cherokee" by sumblr (via calamityjaneporter)
