One of my followers asked me to post this on their behalf. A white girl in Australia’s “African” themed 21st birthday party, which she titled “This is Africa…. my 21st :)”
Attendees were all asked to wear “African themed” clothing to depict the continent and this is what resulted… blackface, elephant and gorilla costumes, warpaint, native American headdresses (?!) and more…. I’m at a loss for words.
And yes, this is from 2013.
The girl posted the pictures proudly and flatly refused to take them down when confronted by another individual about how they were racist apparently. Pictures were reported to facebook weeks ago and they still have not been taken down.
In case you ever wanted to know how white folks saw us black Africans… here you go.
I mean yeah not all africans dress like that but lets say you were throwing a Hawaiian party…people would dress in hula skirts and drink from coconuts ect. they wouldnt dress in normal clothes with a cup of starbucks like actuall hawaiians in hawaii dress. oorrrrr if the theme was austrialian people would dress like kangaroos and wear safari gear….it’s just how Africa is veiwed to people not in Africa… I’m black and i dont know the first thing about Africa…but if i was invited to an african themed party i would dress like that…its only racist if you make it racist…i just think they were having a good time
don’t be so fucking obtuse cocoainepoptarts, is your self esteem so low that you’ll happily enjoy someone mocking your skin color and where you’re from, you’re just a piece of shit, read a book.
woah.. calm your shit buddy.. she was just saying what she feels. I agree with her. I’m white and not racist. Like yeah, the pictures are pretty bad.. the painting of the faces was a bit unnecessary, but everything else is fine. That’s probably what the girl was aiming for. So how about you back the fuck up and leave the poor thing alone. okay? okay.
who the absolute fuck are you to come into a conversation that’s nothing to do with your patronizing arsehole ? fuck you. fuck you and stay out of convos that’s fuck all to do with your slimy fugly pasty self. coming here tell everyone that you’re white and not racist? and????? who the fuck cares? get out of here obtuse bitch.
You are racist. You’re gonna sit around and use the same bullshit logic that been used to passively hold up white hegemony and pretend that that doesn’t have limiting or disparaging qualities, then yeah, you’re a disgusting racist cockstain. When I have my this is Europe party and I show how white people slaughter everyone else in droves while ripping off their identities so crackers like you can call yourselves “progressive” and “secular” and “sophisticated,” I hope you better not say shit.
Nicki Minaj gets stopped for having doors up.
Maybe if she wasn’t retarted.
You spelled retarded wrong. Dumbass.
She left her doors open. Both of them. Dumbass.
And what does that have to do with your illiteracy?
I’m sure it has nothing to do with that persons ability to type in proper English grammar. I believe the point that individual is trying to make is, of all the laws she could be breaking. Having both doors open and endangering her own safety, seems very low on the list of possible crimes.
When asking our summer interns what treats they wanted for their birthday, most said “anything!” or “chocolate!”. Easy. However, one intern said “creme brûlée”. Having never made creme brûlée, knowing that I didn’t own ramekins, and anticipating a difficult time even transporting my…

If you thinking taking seflies is immature and stupid, just get out okay.
All through my adolescence I fucking hated how I looked and hated people taking my picture and that’s no way to live because then you look back and realize you have no pictures of yourself.
So if girls today have enough self esteem to take a picture of themselves and post it for their friends, that’s awesome. So much better than them never wanting their picture taken.

“When you make a movie, always try to discover what the theme of the movie is in one or two words. Every time I made a film, I always knew what I thought the theme was, the core, in one word. In The Godfather, it was succession. In The Conversation, it was privacy. In Apocalypse, it was morality. The reason it’s important to have this is because most of the time what a director really does is make decisions. All day long: Do you want it to be long hair or short hair? Do you want a dress or pants? Do you want a beard or no beard? There are many times when you don’t know the answer. Knowing what the theme is always helps you.
“I remember in The Conversation, they brought all these coats to me, and they said: Do you want him to look like a detective, Humphrey Bogart? Do you want him to look like a blah blah blah. I didn’t know, and said the theme is ‘privacy’ and chose the plastic coat you could see through. So knowing the theme helps you make a decision when you’re not sure which way to go.”
