FCKH8 Continues To Be Awful, Demands An Apology & Accuses Colorlines Of Being Homophobic -
FCKH8 posted a statement on their blog yesterday in response to the Colorlines article that questioned the motives of their “I’m over racism” t-shirt and viral video. If you’re not caught up, here’s a rundown of how this whole thing started.
The post is of course, predictably defensive,…
you all deserve someone who isn’t embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, whether they’re good or bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you all the time and i really hope all of you find that one day because you all deserved to be loved

#yesallblackpeople because there’s a new story about a black person being killed by the police everyday and no laws have been created, yet a police officer killed a dog and a new law has been passed forcing police officers to learn how to react to dogs
Hollywood Studios Blacklist Penelope Cruz over Gaza Letter Accusing Israel of ‘Genocide’ | IB Times
Actress Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem have roused the fury of Hollywood producers, with pledges made to snub the Spanish couple.
Oscar-winner Bardem and Cruz signed an open letter speaking against “the genocide perpetrated by the Israeli occupation army”.
The letter accused Israel of “advancing on Palestinian territories instead of withdrawing to the 1967 borders.
"Gaza is living through horror… while the international community does nothing."
The Spanish letter was signed by 100 leading figures in the film industry, including director Pedro Almodovar.
One top producer who has worked with Cruz says he privately has vowed not to hire her again, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Another top Hollywood executive also privately expressed his disapproval, saying he’s “furious at Javier and Penelope” and wasn’t sure about working with the Spanish couple again.
Relativity Media chief executive Ryan Kavanaugh was the only studio head willing to go public with his views: “As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, I know that anyone calling what’s going on in Israel ‘genocide’ vs. self-defense is either ignorant and shouldn’t be commenting or is truly anti-Semitic.”
However, Kavanaugh doesn’t believe the letter will harm either of the actors’ careers as long as their films are box office hits.
As one film producer explained: “I think the thing any executive or producer will try to calculate before working with Penelope Cruz or Javier Bardem in the near future is what their value is in the all-important international marketplace. And what territories they might have alienated people in by what they said. It might not be that many. But it’s really all about business.”
Other Hollywood big names have waded into the controversy, including comedian Joan Rivers. When quizzed by a TMZ reporter on her thoughts about the 2,000 Palestinians who have so far been killed, she said: “Oh my God! Tell that to the people in Hiroshima.
"Good. Good. When you declare war, you declare war. They started it. We now don’t count who’s dead. You’re dead, you deserve to be dead. Don’t you dare make me feel bad about that.
"They were told to get out. They didn’t get out. You don’t get out, you are an idiot. At least the ones that were killed were the ones with low IQs."

lightened the skin to match too smdh. puta needs to fucking go back to tennessee and stay there.
can y’all out there still living in Willfully Ignorantville please stop denying the blatant cultural appropration/dehuminization of Black bodies that this lil country bumpkin keeps actively engaging in? Like.. she whitewashed a Black woman’s body to put her head on it for coolness/edgy/sexy points… because she is literally using the sexuality of a Black woman but making it white aka ok and attractive. Fuck that. She keeps stooping lower and lower and it’s not a good look.
I feel bad for the good, honest cops who are currently given a bad name due to the unfair, corrupted cops.
A child is dead and you direct your sympathy towards members of the corrupt institution that murdered him.
There’s no such thing as a good cop. If a cop was good, he’d reveal the corrupt things his coworkers do and be fired or murdered. Any cop following the Blue Code of Silence—which is all of them—is a bad cop.
“Black bodies – whether they are trans or not – are assumed to be criminal”
