Humor on Tumblr

So, marginalized people can, and will,  laugh at just about anything, and its okay for you to laugh with our silliness, if you get why. It helps ease the tension and alleviate some of the angst. That’s our superpower though, laughing in Death’s face. When the end of the world rolls around, I expect that Black people will just go out laughing.

This had me chuckling for the rest of the day. It’ll probably catch me up all week.

My favorite misconception about bisexuality is that bi people are half straight half gay as if I walk around in my straight form but then spot a fine honey and dive behind a bush shouting “I’M GOING GAY” and roll out on the other side with a flannel on and the entire discography of Ani Difranco in my back pocket

This one just made me smile. Just about everything having to do with The Black Panther movie makes me smile.

Chadwick Boseman Explains Why the Black Panther Is Not the Magical Negro of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

the-jla-watchtower:

He’s a king so he doesn’t necessarily have to take feedback at all so that’s a good observation. What do you think prevents T’Challa from being a Magical Negro in Civil War? Part of the formula is there: he’s an otherworldly character who could be fixing these white folks’ problems [Boseman laughs].

Boseman: Well, he’s there for his own purpose. He’s not there… usually what happens is “well, he did this in this scene and now he’s doing [something else contradictory] and that doesn’t even fit the character.” That’s the Magical Negro thing. But, I think we were very cognizant about making a character that had his own through-line, his own intent and he wasn’t going to waver for anybody else’s story. Anytime that I felt like that was about to happen, I’d be like ‘nah, this is what he wants. You can do whatever you wanna do but this is what I feel like he needs to be doing.’ I feel like that’s the key. Sometimes… I won’t say more than that. I could go into the Magical Negro and talk about that forever but…. [laughs loudly]

I’m not gonna stop you!

Boseman: Nah, I think the main thing is just keeping it very clear that he has his own arc and his own things that he wants and desires. He only changes that when something strikes a chord at his core. It strikes a chord at what I think is his lineage and heritage and what he’s been taught, at what he’s been groomed to be. He can’t make that shift at the end of the movie unless he’s been groomed to make that shift already. And even though we don’t see that grooming, that’s actually the first glimpse into Wakanda before you see that tag at the very end.

Okay, I have a weird ask and you can turn it down if you want. I have two favorite lines of dialogue from the comics…

Boseman: Noooo, I’m not going to say them in the accent! [laughs loudly] I promised myself I wouldn’t do that.

I have a follow-up, then! Do you have a favorite moment from any of the material that you’ve read so far?

Boseman: Hmmm, wow. Let me think, because there’s a lot of different stuff. One of the moments was when he traps into his ancestral realm and all of the ancestors are standing around and they’re panthers…

So I have to stop you because one of the lines I was going to have you read was from that same exact scene. [turns laptop to show screen]

Boseman: I love that moment, mainly because before I’d even read that series—I’d read the Reginald Hudlin versions and the Kirby series…

Damn, you read the Kirby? I’m a lifelong Black Panther fan but that is some hard reading in 2016.

Boseman: Well, you have to read it, right? There was a book that had all of them collected. But that specific image of those panther ancestors came to me before ever seeing it. So, when I saw it in the book, I was like “Oh, wow.” I didn’t have the role yet but that image already manifested in my head.

There’s a huge amount of cartoons and gifsets of Hannibal in my dash. So many that I had to unfollow some people, but this one stayed.  That first one though, with that smile and the head tilt…priceless!!hannigram-hell: “ sekra: “ everyone else made these jokes so i did too ” I actually kinda want that dress. ”
