I’ve talked about this before at length but I really liked it. I like meta movies and as someone who watches a lot of horror, I appreciated the references they made. But I also appreciate that it kept the story open enough for people who weren’t horror heads - you didn’t have to get the Deadite reference to enjoy the movie. I think it was clever over all.
Thank you. Wow, that is a very nice thing to say :D
This is the back of my leg <3 Vlad The Impaler (addition to my Dracula tribute piece)
Without even touching the spelling on this….. fuck you. First of all, how dare you make a judgement on my personal views or my morality as a person based on something as trivial as fucking Tumblr?
Secondly, I reblog the content that I find. If you want to have a conversation about the lack of racial diversity in horror as a genre or cinema as a whole, that is one thing. But turning it into a personal attack is disgusting.
Lastly, I’m racially mixed. My father is an immigrant from Africa - and a Muslim to boot - so don’t you dare even try to throw some “anti-black” bullshit my way. I have had to deal with racism, sexism and homophobia for most of my childhood and all of my adult life. I have gotten the shit kicked out of me by people who called me a “camel jockey” and a terrorist. I am an advocate for civil rights. I’ve won awards for my work as an advocate and activist. I just don’t show that here because this blog isn’t about me as a person, it’s about a genre of media. I try to talk infrequently about myself or my social views because that isn’t what people signed up to follow. And while I think such cultural dialogs are important, it is also important that they are done respectfully and in a manner that honors the opinions of all sides.
Your comment isn’t respectful. Your comment isn’t honorable. If I truly were a racist, you would not be making any forward progress in erasing that hatred from me. You are literally hurting the very thing you seek to correct. If you want to try to diminish racism in the world, don’t do it by insulting random people anonymously on the internet. Go fucking volunteer or write to your representatives about key issues or donate to organizations dedicated to civil rights. Get educated and educate your friends in a respectful and open way.
Stop making the world a worse place. Some of us are working very hard to make it better.
