Watch!: And when you started out, there were almost no Asian-Americans on TV. Now you’re Watson. The TV my Asian-American daughter grows up watching will be very different than what I grew up watching.
Lucy: It is significant, and I think we still have a long way to go. It is good that you’ll have to explain to her that when Daddy was a teenager, there wasn’t anybody like her on television. People say I’m a pioneer, but I don’t recognize it because I’m still living it. Maybe on my last breath if they name a street after me in the city, I’ll say, “Wow, I made a difference.” Right now, it doesn’t feel like it. [x]
Lucy Liu in the October 2013 edition of Watch! Magazine
That moment when Lucy Liu shut down Hollywood patting itself on the back for racial progress before they even started reaching their hand back.
lucy liu: still this fucking fierce, in case you’d forgotten
You are beautiful. You are powerful. You are intelligent. You deserve to be happy and fulfilled. You deserve to live a life filled with wonder and joy. Be proud. Demand what You deserve as a Black Woman. You have a right to Your desires and Your dreams. Surround Yourself with people who will support that.
Anonymous said: Why is it so hard for you to get cultural appropriation. Why.
Choosing not to brush my hair is not disrespectful to anybody’s culture in any way. Why can’t you see we’re all earthlings?
Do you, lady ! Your dreads are amazing. These blackies are just mad that you our hair is beautiful and you are able to have beautiful normal hair when you’re done with it
Ew what the fuck is that comment
whoa whoa no. Dreads are fine no matter your race but calling people ‘Blackies’ is an absolute NO. And saying they will be jealous because they would have ‘normal’ hair after??? All hair is normal hair?? ?
Racism is never ever ever okay.
They’re racists against whites for not letting us have dreads. When their shit colored smelly hair is in dreads then it’s fine I guess but we can’t?
"SHIT COLORED SMELLY HAIR"
This is what I love about open racists.
At least you know who the enemy is.
This is why I’m beginning to say “no” to white folks with dreads…
””blackies are just mad”
"beautiful normal people hair when you’re done”
"their shit colored smelly hair”
When people ask why many Black people are vehemently opposed to white people wanting to be a part of the natural hair movement, remember these statements. Remember that this is not just about hair, but about the stigma and hatred we face for embracing it. It’s about a willful lack of understanding or respect.
