Difference Regina was all unicorns and true love before her fiance was killed not dark magic and plotting.

Gee, one wonders why people would cheer the Bride but say Regina probably kicked buckets of kittens in her spare time.

BLACK IN ASIA

Thailand

The Mani people are the original homo sapiens that travelled from Africa and settled in Thailand. They are the original negaritos who moved with other Africans like Andamanese of India, Aetas of Philippines,Semangs of Malaysia  to their present  residence in Thailand. They were there before the other ethnic groups came to form the Thai kingdom. Anthropological studies has revealed that the Thai Mani and Malaysian Semang were the first modern humans to enter the Malay peninsula. They remarked that "the original people of the Malay Peninsular that about 4,500 years ago the Proto-Malays moved south from the Yunnan province area of China into Southeast Asia where they met the Negritos who, for a long time, may have been the only modern humans to live in this area" 

The name Mani is of Mon-Khmer origin and means “human being,” and they speak Tonga language. The Mani or “forest people” as other Thai people call them lives in  the jungles of southern Thailand, in the Banthad Mountain Chain and around the Malaysian border in the provinces of Trang, Phatthalung and Satun.  They are facing extinction and currently their total population is about 300. The Banthad Mountain chain became a base area for communist insurgents during the 1970s and thus a battle ground between communist guerillas and Thai government forces. Especially during the years of 1975-1977, the insurgents were battered in ground and air attacks. The Mani suffered terribly during this war with government forces frequently mistaking the smoke of Mani camp fires for insurgent activity. Those living in Trang and Phatthalung provinces had to move to the sanctuary of Thoungwan district in Satun province.

The Philippines

 The Aetas  are the aborigines of the Philippines who were called negritos by the Spaniards at the time of their reign in the Philippines because of their darker skin color. It is the tribe inhabiting the eastern parts of Luzon and called in different names: Agta, Ita, Ati, or Aeta. About 20,000 of them are spread throughout the country. Their majority can be seen in Pampanga and Zambales while others inhabit the coastal fringes of Northern Luzon, and the mountains of Negros, Samar, Panay and Leyte. As a result of their nomadic life, they live in houses built out of grass and tree branches to easily vacate upon scarcity of surrounding food.

Aeta according to anthropologists and archeologists, are descendants of the earliest settlers of the Philippines. They were predicted to migrate in the country through land bridges that connects the country to Asian mainland 30,000 years ago. It may have occurred when the Malay Peninsula was still connected with Sumatra and other Sunda Islands. Their boundless journey around the Malay Peninsula that spread as far as The Philippines resulted to their widespread existence in the country

Malaysia

 The Semang are a Negrito ethnic group of the Malay Peninsula. Lowland Semang tribes are also known as Sakai, although this term is considered to be derogatory by the Semang people. They are the indigenous peoples of this area.They have been recorded to have lived in Malaysia since before the 200s Common Era (CE). They are ethnologically described as nomadic hunter-gatherers.

The Semang live in autonomous local bands consisting of an elder male (usually the leader of the group), his wife, their sons, and the sons’ wives and children. Their religious beliefs are complex and include numerous deities. Shaman-priests practice magic, foresee the future, and cure illness.

Promotional Poster for Sleeping Beauty

Its like he’s about to cop a feel..which would be waaay more accurate to the root story..

I worked retail at a store that sells Christmas ornaments.  One of said ornaments was basically this scene from the Disney movie, with the ornament name as “True Love’s Kiss.”
I renamed it “Date Rape 101.”  
Effect: three other employees who’d planned on buying it rethought said purchase.  They also stopped saying “Sleeping Beauty” was their favorite Disney movie.

Now I gotta figure out a way to let people know about them racist-ass crow caricatures in “Dumbo.”

You mean “Dumbo & The Minstrel Show”?

Yup. Pretty much.

CNN Airs Alleged Audio from Michael Brown Murder

Not sure if verified or not, but massive trigger warning anyway.

I like season 1 Emma... a lot but I still watching thinking "Bitch WHO do you think you are?"

swanloves:

swanloves:

As the viewers WE know the former evil queen is raising Henry and that the entire town is cursed. Emma doesn’t know that shit though.

All of her actions were out of fucking line working with the knowledge she did have. Even if Henry was out of his fucking mind…that was none of…

All that.

Additional point @Onellabella brought up that Regina was completely right to be concerned because Emma did end of trying to kidnap him.

Regina didn’t use magic hearts or political power because she wanted her son happy…she was trying to be Mom Regina and not revert back to what she knew….and it took alllll damn season before she finally said “fuck this shit” and got a magic apple from the pass…cooked that shit up pretty lol

Inorite? I could barely tell dirt and Snow White’s spit was all over it.

Waitwaitwait. Is Samira Wiley a rainbow woman?

in the spirit of the discussion over on the other one—this may be a nonsense inquiry but i think you will be able to make sense of it—

i’m starting to wonder if, even if i don’t explicitly racebend emma, the emma i write has a Mind of Color.

like i know i can write whiteness—any POC can write whiteness—because ugh snow white.  

… i’m completely losing the words i want to use here. do you get what i’m trying to suss out?

eshusplayground and I were talking and I think over the next couple days I’ll read through some of your fics and see if I can put it into words

I think right now, my questions are that, in a white character, what is the difference between a white mind that’s pretty conscious of stuff and like an actual Mind of Colour? Where is the divide when you don’t have those subtle things that remind you “oh yeah, this character is a woman of colour”, or are they there in this case? And that Emma is a character who, in the show, is kind of defined by white supremacy and closeness to the powerful (literally) White family, so can that character deviate from whiteness in a fic? Like a deviation from how whiteness is written and how we’re taught to default everything to whiteness and white thought, but because we’re women of colour we can kind of decide how white people could be supportive or should be supportive and write that into the characters?

Or maybe I’m thinking of this in the entire wrong way. I’ll have to do some reading and see

Those are exactly the questions I didn’t know how to articulate last night. And this can certainly broaden out—I’m currently doing a lot of thinking about ways to recognize allies for POC in realspace, and so I suppose this ties into that too. What is it to consciously divest oneself of whiteness versus to approach any situation with humility? (Which is the only way I currently know to express the difference between POC in a situation and white in a situation.)

To return to Emma—one of the things you highlight is how the canon narrative positions her and how that establishes literal White supremacy. And I think where things get blurry re: my Emma is that I always write her as distanced from that supremacy, suspicious of it, unable to believe for a second that she should have anything to do with it. And that’s where things get blurry. Is that still whiteness but divesting/turning away from privilege or is that me as an author of color putting the distrust of whiteness into the character.

If it were me, it’d most likely be the latter. Unless a white person is choosing to be specifically anti-racist which is not impossible, but very rare, and the Emma of the show would have done things very differently (even as early as the pilot) if she were anti-racist.

Well that would also put to fic writing the demand of adherence to problematic facets written into canon solely because they are canon. I think we can (and should) write a White supremacist mindset out, because Emma’s character could have been anti-racist whilst being otherwise genuine to her characterization. Emma is not here for her Mother’s lifestyle, privilege, worldview, etc. She has shown herself to be suspicious of it, and as dee said, we know we can equate it literally with White power.

At the same time it is also true that her behavior in canon towards Regina was decidedly not anti-racist, particularly with regard to using her institutional support to dis-empower her as Henry’s mother. Perhaps then it is required that, if using the current timeline/canon of the show at all, Emma is shown unlearning that or discovering it in order to denounce it? 

I guess the problem I see is, how does someone like Emma deserve to be with Regina if that mindset doesn’t exist? Would that be healthy for her after everything she has endured? Or as poc, would we allow it for ourselves? Otherwise you get Emma aligning totally with her family/White supremacist ideals, and Regina what, accepting it, or worse, being bent to it?

*highlights and bolds*

DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!

I bet if Henry was a Jamal nobody would be trying to take him from Regina.

All of her actions were out of fucking line working with the knowledge she did have. Even if Henry was out of his fucking mind…that was none of her business. If she believed Henry was hurt she met the Sheriff, teacher and therapist all of them have authority to report and help with investigating abuse claims.

And it was a kindness that Regina didn’t immediatly have her fucked up and thrown into the damn mental ward or some shit.

It was a kindness from Regina , that she went back and forth with Emma playing little games instead of going for the juggular from jump like most parents would do. Like Regina has done when she was a ruler.

Hell Regina was well within bounds to be concerned of a stranger with the only ties being genes being around her ten year old child.

Regina adopted Henry in the REAL WORLD. She didn’ t know until after the fact where Henry came from..but she loved him so she made herself forgot that fact so she could enjoy her little prince and being a mom.


And no this is not an opportunity to come into my inbox with any of that ” but she raped Graham” shit “to discount her as a mom or any other bullshit that is excused away both in fandom and fanfics for males on the show.

*lights a cigarette after making love to this post*

It took Regina ten episodes (“The Fruit of the Poisonous Tree”) to even get around to threatening Emma with a restraining order.

If Henry were my child, be glad Emma was dealing with somebody nice like Regina. I would’ve shot her and sprinkled some crack on her, then told the judge and jury that it’s my fault because it was dark, and I thought she was Black.
