I feel so overwhelmed and sad

I have homework and I’m just lying in bed pretending it doesn’t exist

If you ask a Mexican child in the first grade ‘why the hell are you eating a taco’ he’s going to go home and ask for a peanut butter sandwich.

how about au where sasuke lets his hair grow and puts it up in messy buns

ugh im freaking out about lor’s

i only have two people in mind to ask but they’re both science teachers (teachers of different sciences but still) I would ask my apush teacher but he doesn’t seem very knowledgeable of the lor process… i feel like he’d write me a generic one even though he knows me very well. I’d ask my english teacher because one of her recs got a kid into stanford but she doesn’t know me well at all and i didn’t do so well on her ap test either :/ the only liberal arts teacher i have left is from last year spanish but idk if she’d be willing :/ I’ll ask tomorrow I guess 

does anyone know if journalism counts as an english?

it was just a

normal reaction
to an abnormal

amount of
bullshit.

4.9%

That’s how many speaking roles in Hollywood hits are going to Latinos. For the record, Latinos make up 16% of the U.S. population. Representation matters. (via micdotcom)

Even more alarming is that, when Latino actors are cast, they are by far more likely than any other group to be sexualized, either by revealing clothing or by being defined in the screenplay as attractive. Indeed, 36% of Hispanic actors are displayed in some sort of sexualized attire, the highest of any group looked at in the study. Hollywood seems to think America is not interested in stories about Latinos, unless they are taking their clothes off.

Let’s talk about this. Let’s talk about how most of those roles are to be hypersexualized maids, spicy armcandy love interests, and exotic criminals. Let’s talk about how many of these roles use stereotypes to make these characters as the butt of the joke. Let’s talk about though how most of those roles go to light skinned and white Latinas. Let’s talk about how shitty the representation that Latinxs do have is pretty much restricted to bullshit and biopics.
