LINDSEY BLACK (CANDICE ACCOLA)
MERCEES JONES (AMBER RILEY)
The beautiful Mercedes
Probably could have worded that way differently. I have nothing against Chord Overstreet, he’s an awesome down to earth guy…and nothing on Sam, I never paid him enough attention to form any kind of opinion…but that could have been worded a little better..
Not to mention I can’t see Sam’s character becoming one of the main focal points for Glee…
Sam’s a dick and no offence to Chord, but he will never fill Corey’s shoes. Just don’t try…..
WHO DIS, HARPO?
Seriously what show is this?
Okay I FOUND THE SHOW & VIDEO CLIP. It’s a Brazilian Novella aka Soap Opera called Sague Bom which translates as “Good Blood”. The couple is Tito and Sheila played by Nanda Lasboa and Romulus Neto. She is gorgeous btw. I don’t speak Portugese but my take-away is that he’s a Rich Bad Boy and she’s one of the family’s maids. But she has secrets she’s hiding. A few clips in these links;
This whole Rachel and Sam thing is weird.
It has got me thinking.
It seems that maybe Rachel wants to be Mercedes.
She keeps taking things Mercedes wanted or initially had.
She got all the spotlight in Glee.
Am I the only one noticing this pattern?
Even her friendship with Santana…
wtfmonie asked: People can be racist towards white people though...
Yeeeeah but no. It is absolutely not possible to be racist towards white people. Can you be prejudice towards white people? Yes. Is being prejudice ok? No, not at all. No one should be treated differently or unfairly because of their race. But remember that prejudice in minorities against white people is generally in response to oppression. Whereas racism (which is created by white people and enforced on minorities) is a form of oppression. But think about it, if you’d been beaten down, raped and killed by white people for centuries, chances are you’d be a little skeptical of them too.
Now before you go running to your Oxford dictionary (lulz, wonder who wrote that…) to look up the definition of racism, lemme explain. Racism is not just someone being mean to you or calling you names. It’s not just a belief that one group is better than another, it’s an entire SYSTEM that supports the oppression of another group. Racism is a result of prejudice and POWER. Meaning that laws and societal norms are created by one group (ahem, white people) in order to enforce those prejudices onto an ENTIRE group (ahem people of color).
If someone is being mean to you just because you’re white, then they’re being an asshole. But they aren’t a racist asshole because society is not giving them a pass to be mean to you or treat you poorly because you’re white. Society is not rewarding their behavior or creating laws that hurt your quality of life just because you’re white.
Don’t feel bad though, I realize this is something a lot of white people struggle with because in their minds racism = being called cracker, getting beat up by a black person, being told you can’t dance or some black girl put gum in your hair and you had to get a pixie cut which ended up actually looking kinda cute. In reality racism means being denied a job interview because the name on your resume “sounds black”, being removed from school because your natural hair texture is deemed “distracting”, 100 times higher drug sentences for crack cocaine (which is commonly associated with poor black people) versus cocaine (which is commonly used by upper middle class white people), being stopped and frisked or worse KILLED on your way home because you “look suspicious” (ahem black) and so on and so on.
Hope this clears things up cause I’m really tired of explaining this!
I never did watch this movie. Now I don’t feel bad for not watching it!
you aint missin nuthin. you seen one white savior movie, you seen them all
OKAY NO IF YOU HAD SEEN THE MOVIE OR MAYBE FUCKING READ THE BOOKYOU WOULD KNOW THAT ISN’T WHAT IT IS. IT WASN’T HER SOLVING RACISM IT WAS HER GOING AGAINST SOCIAL NORMS, BEING SHUNNED BY HER FRIENDS AND LOOKED DOWN UPON BY MOST OF THE COMMUNITY SO SHE COULD HELP THESE WOMEN GET THEIR STORIES OUT THERE AND SPREAD AWARENESS OF THE PROBLEMS THEY WERE FACING BECAUSE SHE FELT THAT IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT PEOPLE SEE IT AND THEY WEREN’T ABLE TO DO IT ALONE. YOU CANNOT BASE YOUR OPINION ON A BOOK OR MOVIE OR ANYTHING ON ONE EDIT THAT SOME IDIOT MADE WHO OBVIOUSLY DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THE BOOK. EDUCATE YOURSELVES YOU FUCKING DICKWADS.
^all the awards
While I did see the movie and liked it.. I would like to point out that your argument really just proved, the first comments right. Essentially, the white savior help (saved) the poor WOC. No they shouldn’t base their opinion on this poster but their opinions where still valid none the less.
None of these relationships are healthy or even brimming with chemistry. Not Klaine, Finchel, Brittana or Tike. The only one I legitimately respected was Samcedes and of course, they threw that away without a care. Most of them were fan pandered anyway.
Well, Samcedes was built from the foundation of cheating, so I wouldn’t really call it healthy either, and I honestly never saw any chemistry between them. Tike was actually pretty amazing until they threw Mike under the bus.
Actually they started the end of season 2. When they were both single. JS. They also were the only couple not to auto date after a break up.
