think HARD about that: not only did they white-wash Katniss, they EXPLICITLY PROHIBITED WoC TO AUDITION FOR THE ROLE OF KATNISS. Smells like blatant racism.
Can we focus on that last part? B/c white people will always come up with “well the white actor/actress was just the best one to audtition.” Well, yeah if that’s ONLY who auditioned.
They’re theory of white actors/actresses being better doesn’t hold up if no one else if given the opportunity to even audition.
What I love about this is how Anita states right off the bat, that this is not about Jennifer Lawrence. This is about something much bigger than her. And she didn’t need to diss her to make the point. She sets hr aside, rolls up her sleeves, and tackles the bullshit head on.

A comic about why witches are stereotyped as riding broom:
Apparently once upon a time there was an ointment one could rub on a broom - that was most popular amongst herbalists (such as many witches) - that was a hallucinogenic. One would ride the broom for masturbating purposes and the ointment would be absorbed through the mucus membrane of the vagina and give the rider a sensation of flying.
Now you will never look at Quidditch the same way again.

Rosalia Lombardo died of pneumonia at the age of two in Palermo, Sicily on December 6th, 1920. She is the best preserved child in the world and she was embalmed by the country’s best embalmer, Alfredo Salafia.
Urban legend has it that Rosalia opens her eyes every now and then. Most of the time, it was brushed off as just a rumor, until someone set up a camera and discovered this.
