Better be endgame!!!
"You just killed the president." -Jake
As an African-American woman, it pains me to see how ABC has to use this picture of Jake choke-holding Olivia. This is not the first time that Jake has caused Olivia pain. In season 2, he was the catalyst in her falling, hitting her head and asking her to LIE about his part in it. I can’t help but think how the reaction would be if this was Harrison choke-holding Quinn, Mellie, Abby, or Quinn, I’m sure it would have NOW breathing down ABC backs demanding an apology from Shonda Rimes.
It is also a sad state of affairs when the African-American writer and producer feel the need to disrespect a woman of color since she too is an AA woman. I would expect the white writers and executive producers to not give a damn about WOC but when it is one of our own, there isn’t much to say.
With domestic crime out there and women being beaten everyday, this is not a good look for the show or audience. The message that this is sending out that it’s okay to abuse women, especially women of color because there are not consequences to the actions.
ABC, Shonda Rimes, Betsy Beers, Tom Verica, Kerry Washington, and Scott Foley, all should be ashamed of how Olivia is portrayed in this scene. Instead of rectifying the wrong that was done, ABC is making matters worse by using the snippet as a promo as the show. It really saddens and sickens me that an African-American woman’s life has no value in Real or Reel Life.
Taraji P. Henson covers Upscale magazine’s April 2014 issue
On what happened after her Oscar nomination and Tyler Perry: “People were like, ‘you just get nominated for an Oscar and the first movie you do is a Tyler Perry film?’ Well, it’s not like Scorsese called me! Tyler was the only call i got the day after the Oscars. And he gave me a quote. Up until then, I had no quote. I was getting paid pennies to do movies. Tyler treated me like a queen.”
On staying grounded/friendships: “I’ve got my road dogs who were with me before all other fame. My best friend in the whole wide world I’ve known since the seventh grade. My other girlfriend was my roommate at Howard. They are my backbone. They know me. When they see me, they look behind the eyes into my soul to see if I’m really alright.”
On the realities of being a black actresses: “It’s always a battle for black women; we’re totally at the bottom of the totem pole. Look at the white girls. How many times have you seen Amy Adams in a period piece with a great actor like Meryl Streep or Christian Bale? And look at Jennifer Lawrence! Hits out the wazoo! How come we’re not nominated every year? Because the scripts and the roles aren’t there. It’s not rocket science.”
On love and dating: “Here’s the deal. I’m no spring chicken. I’m not in my 20s dating around. I’m looking for happily ever after. So, once you get clear on what it is you’re looking for, the pickings are slim, honey. I’ve left the whole continent of North America. I’m looking abroad.”
This was so sweet!
🌞Once again Hollywood is trying to paint a false image of African world history. They’re working on a new film called “The Gods of Egypt” in which they will be casting Danish actor “Nikolaj Coster-Waldau” (famed for his works on the game of thrones) as the “Egyptian” God Ra. This is a slap in the face of my ancestors and every other person of indigenous decent. SIGN THE PETITION ASAP in the LINK BELOW - Stop artistic team behind “The Gods of Egypt”, from holding an all white cast.
I honestly don’t get why they have to whitewash egyptian gods. it does not make ANY fucking sense!
he is a great actor, but damn it let him play a norse god, not motherfucking RA!;;____;;
Nikolaj jfc please don’t do it. just DON’T.
(also SIGN THE PETITION)
edit: jesus fucking christ the WHOLE cast is white bar one actor. Gerard Butler as Set? Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus? Jeoffrey Rush as Ra? LOL FUCK NO
welp I know what movie I won’t be seeing
Not getting my money.
Not at all
White people need to cut this fuckshit out. There is NO REASON WHATSOEVER that a white man should be playing this role. This isn’t even hate. This is just the truth of the matter. White people wanna trip when someone says they are even thinking about casting a black person as their favorite fictional comicbook character. But they have to alter actual history?! FUCK FOR?! I’m pretty much gonna sign this petition and I hope all of you that reads/likes/reblogs this does as well. As a matter of fact… why don’t we just do one better and fight all productions like this?
tumblr said that Kerry Washington had a girl but apparently she's going to have a Boy so...
Did you break into her confidential doctors files? I actually don’t know why people keep coming into my inbox and telling me things when everything I say is based on fact. Sorry anon, had to use you to make a point.
I don’t recall it being published anywhere what Kerry was having a boy. Even at the bridal shower, it was speculation because she wore a blue jean dress to the shower but nothing sound.
