not here for y’all singing to the heavens about how beautiful Lupita’s skin tone is then turning around and shitting on Gabourey Sidibe or Rachel Jeantel or Whoopi Goldburg or whomever for THEIR skin tone.
if you only like dark skin when it’s on a thin, “properly feminine” body then you don’t like dark skin.
thank you so much for this post.
Like, do you understand? A black man’s story, written by a black man, directed by a black man, was named best screenplay and best film and features the best supporting actress in a film. BLACK EXCELLENCE!
let’s make this happen
That was the first thing I thought about when I saw this. It’s like sh watched every Disney film in preperation of tonight.
I’ll chip in $20 to fund this film. Anyone else with me?
legendary queen motha octavia st. laurent, the god Apollo reincarnate prince, and the monolith Beyonce have all donned this billion cosmo star embedded garment.

Just a few congratulatory tweets to the ever so graceful Lupita Nyong’o!
NEVER BRING THIS POST BACK AGAIN I WILL NOT SUFFER ONCE MORE
Yo, real shit Barkhad Abdi shifted Captain Philips into a truly intense movie, they covered all aspects of terror, interests, just obligations to what both sides of the cast had to do to live and survive in the world, rather it be shipping cargo to taking the cargo by force.
He constantly maintained a very compelling performance throughout the movie.
And then you realize that was his first acting role.
