—Marie Antoinette (2006)

 Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!

*watches Jon Stewart’s comments on Ferguson* hey look it’s a white man getting heaps of credit and adulation for saying the exact same shit that black people have been saying for weeks now. how unexpected.

WHITE SAVIOR! WHITE SAVIOR! bow down……*side eye*

I have mixed feelings about commentary like this because yes I agree that it’s problematic for white people to receive more credit and praise for things black people have been saying for years. But I also think it is necessary to have white figures with primarily white audiences to critique whiteness and white supremacy. Because whenever white people ask what they can do to help, I say, educate your people.

"When reading the script, I felt sympathy for her. I wanted to hold her, I wanted to make it all right. But that’s no way to play her. I had to let go of that and recognize that Patsey abused was the norm. She didn’t get time to sentimentalize her abuse. She didn’t get time to wallow in it. She needed to live through it. And it was coming from all directions. It was physical, it was emotional, it was psychological. And she was always trying to get through it. Those were the things that guided me and prepared me to do this role. And recognizing that this was a true story. And I had the privilege of doing this for fake." - Lupita Nyong’o on preparing to play Patsey in 12 Years a Slave

Sometimes I think about how Martha Jones was offered all of Time and Space and endless adventure and walked away from it because she’d have to spend it with a person that didn’t respect her.

You talk about role models…
