I do not find this Beauty and the Beast Paradody funny. It’s one big singing stereotype.
That’s the point. It’s self-referential humor.
I applaud the people involved for being able to poke fun at themselves, and understand that at the end of the day, it was just a bunch of people having fun and putting together something neat.
The video was arranged by black people, and the girl playing Belle was the only white person involved as far as I can tell. While it is making fun of black stereotypes, it’s not doing so in a malicious way at all. It’s implicitly worse that the N-word has become a common part of everyday language for many black people; if that’s not a bad thing, then I don’t see why jokingly mocking cultural stereotypes is.
@crazyfilledmind keep in mind that if this was so begrudgingly offensive, I don’t think that the blacks in this would’ve done this. On top of that, the parody was created by a black person. Please do your research please C:
African Americans/African/Those of African Descent are often involved in projects/movies/film/media that negativily paints a stereotype of their race. It’s how we (african americans,etc.) became involved in Hollywood in the first place. People have to make money and put food on the table and some will do anything to get there.
Now I did not know it was created by a black person. However, that does not make it less offensive in my eyes. But again this is my opinion, which I am free to state.
Thanks for letting me know to do my research beforehand but I would suggest the same thing to you. How do you think PoC got involved in Hollywood/movies in the USA in the first place? And believe me, it was not by portraying their cultures in a positive light.
^ I firmly believe what uncdan said, but everyone here thinks I’m being too stuck-up about my taste in guys. College guys suck for the most part. Well, more…
I’d be fibbing if I said I didn’t have a “type”, but I can’t exactly pin-point it. I’m more of a “I know it when I see it” kind of girl, but the only thing that comes to mind in terms of a “type” is manly/masculine. Other than that, I’ll know when I see it! And “here” actually means “here”, in Connecticut. On my campus and in my hometown. People can actually relate to me here on Tumblr, bahaha. But yeah! Same situation here with my friends! All of them think I’m either over-exaggerating or being a stuck-up bitch when I say it’s hard to find good guys in college, and I get that same line that I should leap at every guy that comes along instead of being picky.
Rant time since we welcome rants here: Why the fuck shouldn’t I have that right to pick and choose who I should get involved with? I will not leap at every man’s feet like I’m thirsty, because I’m not, and not every man is into me for me. From experience actually, every guy that’s ever shown interest has owned up to just wanting sex, and then threw a fit and started ignoring me and treating me like crap after I wouldn’t give it to them. Those particular guys, some were attractive, but they were overall childish fucking douchebags. I can’t speak for anyone else but I certainly don’t deserve that treatment, so why the fuck am I not allowed to be “picky”?
We have every right to be, I think. Big girls who know what they want need love too, and so do twigs who are still trying to figure everything out!
LIKE I SAID THOUGH, I have a list of places I wanna travel! Can we talk over it and kinda combine our destinations together and just be flighty black women who love the world? :D
I hate that I just found this post from stalking through your blog. I apologize for a lateass response.
Agree 100%. We, as women, have the right to be picky. It’s our bodies, minds and souls that go into a relationship and some of us don’t want to give all of that to some random idiot who doesn’t deserve it.
It is hard to find a guy in college. College is the perfect place for people to fuck with no strings attached. Which is what most men and some women are doing. Which is perfectly fine. But normally the phase of fucking random strangers fades after sophomore year and then people are ready to be in relationships. Not always but most of the time. And for those of us who moved on from the college guys were were fucking with no strings attached for two years, we truly don’t have time for college guys when it comes down to it.
I vow that we both stick to our values and continue to be picky!!1
^ I firmly believe what uncdan said, but everyone here thinks I’m being too stuck-up about my taste in guys. College guys suck for the most part. Well, more room for gettin’ stuff done, like you said! Can I travel with you? :P
What exactly is your taste in guys if I may inquire?
I get the same problem in real life (I’m assuming here means Tumblr) because I guess because I’m a big girl I should settle for any guy and that’s not what I want. I may have high standards but they aren’t superficial ones. Like it doesn’t matter where the guy works or if he has a car or he’s rolling in dough. It just matters if he has a personality and can have a conversation which is a hard combo to come by these days.
People think my standards are too high for a big girl but I tell them to fuck off.
This past saturday was my area’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. In the past, this holiday falls on a work/school day so not many people show up. But it landed on a saturday this year which means everyone and their mom came out for the parade. Not to mention it was seventy degrees outside. Now…
Are you fucking serious? Immature, unfair, racist, rude-as-hell, ratchet, mean-spirited, white privilege, deplorable, I just…no. I fucking cannot, I ain’t got no words for this.
But if I were you, momma present or not, I’d surely tell them to have some seats and enjoy “their” parade from there. “Block my view”, my ass, man. The fuckery of the people in this world, ಠ_ಠ.
What’s worse is, my mom prolly wouldn’t want anything to do with this and tell me and herself that it’s “not our business” and that I should keep my mouth shut.
"The fuckery of the people in this world" I love this! That’s how I felt as it was happening. People are full of shit these days, especially those who are suppose to be considered mature. I actually did shout and tell the "adults" that they were yelling at children and to leave the children alone but they ignored me. My mom was a little pissed during it too. This one couple next to us also thought it was stupid (they were white) and my mom told the woman, "ignorance like this shows you that these people haven’t traveled anywhere or experience anything." The couple agreed with us which angered the family in front of us who glared at my mom as she laughed. After that, my mom started calming me down.
Certain things become everyone’s “business” especially when it pertain to discrimination.
1) no idea. i also do not approve, although one of them had really cool shoes 2) i know!! especially taeyang XDD 3) this was filmed in NYC baby!
1) no approval for the western girls!!! 2) all of them; normally just taeyang and gd dance really well but all of them did a good job. however, i feel as if their dance move was borrowed from somewhere. 3)it feels as if was filmed in chicago because of the metal subway above their head.
I’m pretty sure you have no idea how glad I am that you said this, ‘cos I thought I was the only one; the song’s incredibly flat and dull, and the best parts for me were whenever Daesung sang, tbqh. :/
for the oddest reason, i knew I wasnt the only one so that’s why I had to state it so i could find like minded people. yeah the song is flat and just not fun. Big Bang is suppose to be like a big banging party not all these sad songs. Daesung in general just look good in the video.
Going through the same thing, honey, just cuz I said I don’t like Hyuna. Honestly, give me a fucking break, opinions are opinions.
THANK YOU! But K-pop fans, especially international ones, get so offended about k-pop groups the second someone states a negative opinion. It’s okay to not like Hyuna because I’m not a big CL fan but i still like 2ne1.
Anonymous asked: "midnight circus only got popular because of kikwang 20 seconds." wow. this just proves you don't know what you're talking about. lol.
Thank you but I do. It was catchy yes but was promoted with the title, “featuring B2St’s Kikwang”. That’s how it spread so quickly. It’s called using someone famous to help another become famous. It’s how most artists get famous. Not just talent. But thank you for gladly stating you opinion and laughing. But here’s what I have to say to you….
