THIS VIDEO GAVE ME SO MUCH ANXIETY

Nicole Beharie by Lance Gross - 2014

I feel like one of the things that sets Bobs Burgers apart from its counterparts in shows like Family Guy is its penchant for love and sincerity in its characters. Tina doesn’t get relentlessly mocked by her family members for being awkward and homely for laughs like Meg Griffin would be, the comedy is instead in how they defend her from people giving her crap. The parents and the kids and the siblings all have moments where they assess how close they are often and it’s something not seen much in these sort of family-based animated comedies (besides early Simpsons). BB may not be a perfect show by any means, but I feel like its sense of heart definitely makes it more fun to watch than a lot of its peers in primetime animated comedies.

So I was watching the Dark Knight earlier and I thought “This is what I should say whenever people shit on Mamoru.”

THIS IS NOT NEWS

I don’t know what people expect Egyptians to be. I guess watching The 10 Commandments on ABC growing up got folks thinking they all looked like bronzed white people.

BREAKING NEWS: BLACK PEOPLE ARE BLACK. THIS IS AN AMAZING DISCOVERY. BLACK PEOPLE EXISTED BEFORE WE DISCOVERED THEM AND ENSLAVED THEM AND FUCKED UP THEIR LAND. WOW.

Africans in Africa? Mind blown. 

No you guys! No! No! Please research!

South Africa was populated by dark skinned people, like ancient Nubia. The Egyptians and Nubians trader and interacted constantly. Some Egyptians were native Nubians.

North Africa was populated by lighter skinned individuals. Due to geography, the people of North Africa traded and interacted with people from modern day Turkey and the “Middle East,” which was populated by natives and traders there. People from modern day Turkey and surrounding areas were called the Hittites, who were for the most part enemies and traders with the Egyptians. They were fair skinned.

Egypt was conquered many times and populated by Nubians, Hittites, Kushites, and the like— all very different ethnic groups.

THE EGYPTIANS WERE OF MIXED ETHNICITY!!!!! PLEASE RESEARCH EGYPTIAN HISTORY. THIS HAS BEEN A KNOWN FACT SINCE THE 1920’s!!!!!!!!!

Some “Egyptian” mummies have red hair…

Trust me, I am both a historian and archaeologist.

You really expect me to believe that you’re a historian and archeologist when you use “some mummies had red hair” as a credible argument? Do you know how many monoracial black people with red hair I know? LOL. You also divided Egypt into “North Africa and South Africa” did you buy your degree?

Black women who made the Time 100 List For 2014. Creative singer, dancer, artist, philanthropist and feminist Beyoncé, creative outspoken actor, artist and feminist Kerry Washington, tennis legend, philanthropist and business owner Serena WilliamsChicagoan and now head of U.N. World Food Programme Ertharin CousinNigerian economist and past Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Ugandan activist Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, South African human rights lawyer Thuli Madonsela, and Kenyan tech guru Ory Okolloh. 

Laverne Cox and Janet Mock DIDN’T make the list though. Clearly both had a major impact in 2013. Both have been outspoken about Black trans women and trans women of colour’s rights and lives, both have created remarkable and important art and both have been influential and highly visible. They should’ve been there. Easily.

Beyoncé made the Time 100 List in 2013 as well, but this year has the cover after a successful and influential year in 2013, from her Super Bowl performance, to her world tour, to her incredible visual album BEYONCÉ, to being more outspoken with her feminist politics through her music, and through other projects—some I like (speaking, writing, fundraising, philanthropy), some I’ve critiqued (i.e. #BanBossy/Lean In)—all while being committed to her family, her marriage to Jay-Z and motherhood to Blue Ivy

Several Black men made the list as well, including two of my personal faves, Oscar winning film director Steve McQueen and Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman

As I wrote about yesterday, there is a DIFFERENCE between the legitimate desire for representation of Black women’s humanity in the media while still creating our own media (as ignoring the mainstream does not erase harmful messages about us are placed there) and "oh that’s White approval!" This distinction and understanding of how media representation impacts us is important.
