UNIT 1: COLORS AND YOUR BASIC FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THEM

SECTION B: HUE, CONTRAST, THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, AND YOUR BASIC FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THEM

“Uh hello, pretty sure Finnick being ginger means he’s white.”


Now what we have here is a perfect example of the english language and your basic failure to understand it*. You are confusing bronze with copper, and surprisingly enough, these two colors are not the same!


This is copper:


This is bronze:


Copper:


Bronze:

As you can see, these two colors are not the same!


“Uh hello, pretty sure gold doesn’t mean black people, Finnick just has a tan, GOD!


This is the color gold:

And this is the vanilla pudding pop who will be playing Finnick Odair:

So handsome.


Gold:


This douche:

brb, swooning


Gold:


Not gold:

Fig. 1: The color of beauty.


As you can see, these two colors are not the same!



“Uh hello, Finnick has like, GREEN EYES! Since when do black/brown/anyone but people of my race not have gross poopy brown ones?”

You may be surprised to learn that the answer is since PRETTY MUCH ALWAYS! In fact, Finnick’s eyes are constantly described as his most striking and easily identifiable feature! Now, here is what a brown person looks like with green eyes:

Unf.

Here is what green eyes look on a white person:

What green eyes?

Once again, brown person with green eyes:

Fig. 2: Striking.

White person with green eyes:

Fig. 3: Not striking.

Brown person:

White person:


As you can see, a white person with green eyes is not striking at all, and is in fact basically interchangeable with any other saltine!


“Uh god whatever, J-Law’s hair looks enough like Katniss’s! And since when does black hair make someone ethnic?


You may be surprised to learn that the answer is since PRETTY MUCH ALWAYS!

This is what Jennifer Lawerence looks like as Katniss Everdeen:


This is a person with black hair:

J-Law:

A person whose hair is actually black:


BROWN HAIR:

BLACK HAIR:

As you can see, these two things are massively the fuck different!


“UUUUUUUUUGGGGH, just because the throat chomping psychopath is black doesn’t mean a character with more than one personality trait would ever not be white!”


You may be surprised to learn that you are completely talking out of your ass!

Katniss and Enobaria are canonically described as appearing to be of the same ethnic make-up with the only obvious difference being eye color.

This is a picture of me:

This is a picture of an absolutely perfect specimen of humanity:

This is what two people who appear to be of the same ethnic make-up, with the only obvious difference being eye color, look like.

That and Jesse Williams being a total fucking dimepiece.

This is a white person and a black person:

Two brown people with different eye colors:

And objective levels of attractiveness.

A white person and a black person:

As you can see, you are an utter dipshit of mythical proportions if you cannot determine the difference between these two things!

Let’s review what we’ve learned today:

  •  Colors that are different from other colors are not the same as the colors that they are different from.
  • There is nothing remarkable or interesting about a white person having eyes in color that it is not remarkable or interesting for a white person to have.**
  •  Black and brown are actually not the same color.
  •  White people and black people are actually not the same thing.
  •  You have no idea what you are even talking about.
  •  Shut up.

Hopefully this has served to aid you in the acquisition of basic logistical skills, but should you still find yourself wetting the keyboard with your bitter, salty white tears, please see me after class for Unit 2 of this lesson, GENETICS AND YOUR BASIC FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THEM.

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

And you know what really breaks my heart

Amandla Stenberg COULD be the next Dakota Fanning, Isabelle Fuhrman, Anna Sophia Robb, whatever white child actress you want to pick, but she WON’T.

She’s got an amazing amount of talent, but she won’t have the chances those other girls have because of the color of her skin. Because of WHITE ONLY casting calls and because Hollywood does not write characters for black women.

And that is some mighty fucking bullshit.

see, & this is another reason that Katniss should really have been cast as a young woman of color. there are so few lead roles for these actors as-is, & really, how many roles out there have a young woman of color

  • playing the lead character in a trilogy in which the first movie makes $155Million on opening weekend
  • where she is portrayed as strong, independent & desirable
  • in a story that is widely-loved

Not to take away from the truths above about Amandla, but it’s all part & parcel of the same nasty side of Hollywood casting.

“I throw my spear, which I’m not too bad at actually, if I don’t have to throw too far, and see the little girl from District 11 standing back a bit, watching us. She’s the twelve-year-old, the one who reminded me so much of Prim in stature. Up close she looks about ten. she has bright, dark eyes and satiny brown skin and stands tilted up on her toes with her arms slightly extended to her sides, as if ready to take wing at the slightest sound. It’s impossible not to think of a bird.” —The Hunger Games pages 106-107 

Where the hell in there does it say Rue was a blonde hair, blue eyed white girl??? STOP THE WHITEWASHING!

A group of teens are forced to hunt one another for sport in this massively popular Japanese film from 2000 that offers both social commentary and a Hunger Games-like thrill ride — only bloodier.

Entertainment Weekly (from the app EW Must List)
