      Yo Pataki is a re imagining of the Hey Arnold characters as young adults. The series (hypothetically) would center around a 26 year old Helga Pataki who is now a bartender works at the family owned business, Big Bob’s Cafe.

              i see lucy as a racist film that plays on negative stereotypes while hiding behind the cover of (white) feminism. 

              all this film has done is switch out the white man for a white woman. it’s still a film about a white person getting violated by the evil poc, then gaining power and wiping them out. 

              here’s 2 of my favourite scenes from the trailer:

              traditional chinese is an actual written language used by millions of people, not symbols to be thrown around at the whim of set designers because they look cool and idk, serves to create a menacing asian atmosphere. this is so disrespectful, and made even worse by the fact that this film in set it taipei, taiwan where the official written language is traditional chinese.

              it doesn’t matter that this film caters to a primarily “white” audience who won’t be able to read it, the language and culture of taiwan isn’t something for you to twist and use as you deem fit because it’s “exotic.” 

              image

              lucy shoots a guy for not being able to speak english. 

              she l i t e r a l l y shoots this taiwanese taxi driver, in taiwan for not being able to speak english. she’s in taipei and she’s shooting people as they are of no use to her because they don’t speak english. 

              just think about the sort of message that’s sending out. she’s not being “bad-ass strong female character who takes no shit,” she’s saying that english is useful and better. this is the type of harmful ideology that stretches all the way back from when western countries were colonising and forcing their language and customs on other countries. 

              let me explain with a real life example. i was born in new zealand to two taiwanese parents. i am fluent in english, but mandarin is conversational at best. my friends in taiwan say that i am “so lucky” to speak fluent english, when they are fluent in mandarin and their english level is no worse than my mandarin. they tell me that they want to perfect their english but in the same breath tell me that mandarin isn’t worth perfecting because i have english and that’s “enough”. they also tell me how pretty my white friends are when they see pictures.

              this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that they’ve grown up buying into. it honestly hurts and frustrates me that they belittle their own culture like this, honestly believing that the western world is superior. this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that this film (hopefully unintentionally) promotes: white people are better and will save the day. 

              if they wanted to film a movie about a white women getting back at those who had violated her, why not film it in a western country? if they wanted to film it in taiwan, why not find an asian lead actress?

              i do agree that we need more women protagonists in action/superhero movies, but not like this. its not okay that the female lead needs to be kidnapped and have her body cut open without her consent in order to gain her powers, and those said those powers do not make any of this racist bullshit okay. 

              i am just so tired and angry of poc always being brushed off to the side as either props or villains in mainstream media. 

              as a poc, it’s so frustrating to see that the of the standard of beauty still white women when we live in multi-cultural societies and a diverse world. 

              feminism is about equality. a film in which poc are presented as evil and inferior before being killed off by a superior white woman does not promote equality. 

                  Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.

                          Parents, activists call for resignation of Bill Bratton, end to ‘Broken Windows’ policing

                          PROTEST City Hall on Monday July 21st at 12 p.m. 

                          With the support of Parents Against Police Brutality and National Action Against Police Brutality, New Yorkers Against Bratton and other activists are calling for the resignation of NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, a federal investigation into the NYPD’s culture of brutality and an end to ‘Broken Windows’ based policing.

                          The death of Staten Island man Eric Garner has outraged the city—especially since this is not an isolated incident of excessive and fatal force by the NYPD on an unarmed civilian. The list is long but names include Nicholas Heyward Jr., Anthony Baez, Anthony Rosario, Malcolm Ferguson, Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, Shantel Davis, Kimani Gray, Ramarley Graham and now Eric Garner. The recurrence of these incidents indicates a pattern and culture of brutality that has not been fundamentally changed by NYPD top brass. Garner, like Baez, died as a result of a chokehold done in spite of the tactic being banned by the NYPD’s patrol guide since 1992. Bratton—who was commissioner during both Baez and Garner’s deaths—famously called the families of Heyward, Rosario and Baez ‘a bunch of fools’ during a contentious town hall meeting in 1995. As such he is not only not the right person to heal wounds between the NYPD and the community, he has shown he is incapable of controlling his police officers.

                          Additionally, Garner’s death is directly related to Broken Windows policing—Bratton’s signature policing theory. The NYPD alleges that Garner was targeted for arrest for the sale of untaxed cigarettes—a ‘quality of life’ crime, as Bratton alluded to when he took questions on Garner’s death from reporters. The focus on low-level crimes has been reinvigorated this year by Bratton who introduced it on a major scale as NYPD commissioner in the 1990’s. Bratton has exponentially increased arrests of panhandlers, homeless NYers and performers in the subways in the first six months of 2014. In February, Jerome Murdough, a homeless veteran with a history of mental illness, died in his Rikers cell after his arrest for sleeping in an East Harlem staircase—a quality of life crime. Broken Windows leads to broken lives for countless New Yorkers who are thrust into a broken criminal justice system, can end up in overcrowded jails where corrections officers use alarming amounts of excessive force, and—as the case of Garner shows—can become subject to tactics that can lead to death.

                          As most of the city rightfully supports the family of Eric Garner, we call for more substantive changes to the NYPD, as well. The firing and prosecution of Daniel Pantaleo and other officers responsible for Garner’s death is not enough. The 120th Precinct’s Deputy Inspector Joseph Veneziano and Staten Island Borough Commander Ed Delatorre must also be held responsible but ultimately the commissioner is responsible for the continued pattern of brutality and the underlying policing priorities that led to the incident.
