That’s right! We need a name! It should be something colorful and dramatic, like…the Avengers.”

Here’s to Janet Van Dyne, one of the founding members of the Avengers and whom MCU decided to erase.

White supremacy in action.

i’ve seen the sphinx in person and it very clearly does not have european features.  
i keep standing in awe of how fucked up this world is seriously - you need to change the features of fucking ancient statues now.
ugh

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!

Eid in Gaza

العيد في غزة

marvel: [has a black man walk in the background of the shot of the 6 white avengers]
marvel fandom: REPRESENTATION.
marvel fandom: DO YOU SEE THAT.
marvel fandom: DC, WHERE YOU AT.
marvel fandom: YOUR MOVE, DC.
marvel fandom: ON YOUR LEFT, DC.

Okay but still no DC film has come close to what small steps Marvel has taken towards better representation, and consider things like: every protagonist in Cap 2 apart from Steve was either black or female. And GotG has a black female co-lead! Hopefully it’ll improve further as the universe expands.
