I’m so slow, I just found out that The 5th Wave movie is already being filmed (or at least in pre-production)…and that Chloe Moretz is going to play Cassie, the protagonist. I’d just like to know why Hollywood always chooses actors who look the fucking same for every single fucking role??? Like Jen Lawrence, Shailene girl from Divergent, Chloe Moretz, they all look the same boring white girl blond hair all american way and it’s getting so fucking boring. Is there a rule that every single female lead has to be white, cute and innocent looking, blond and blue eyed?? Those girls all look like they’re sisters. They could at least sometimes cast a brunette or a ginger. I mean I won’t even say a PoC because that would be too much to ask, right.
(I even put them all next to each other…I don’t know if it’s because I’m latina, but honestly they all look the same to me…their faces, noses and mouths even have the same shape)
The Ebola epidemic is going to spin off into full-on hypochondriac racism really fast, mark my words.
In Brazil, a man from Guinea who had just immigrated with all legal documents had a fever and people freaked out, so he was flown to a special hospital in another city, where he was taken to some kind of Ebola treatment unit. The doctors found out that he didn’t have any other symptons of Ebola other than the fever and the exams showed that he didn’t have Ebola.
But now people who are too lazy to inform themselves are afraid that African immigrants might bring this disease to their cities, even though no one in Guinea or any other country affected by Ebola can get a visa without taking exams to prove that they’re healthy. Even Haitian immigrants are being discriminated - as in, people don’t want to sit next to them on the bus,etc - and Haiti isn’t even in Africa.
Twitter and Facebook (in Brazil) were full of racist remarks during this whole Ebola suspicion. Also, journalists acted in a very unethical way by publishing the man’s full name, as if he was a criminal! He had the right to mantain his anonymity.
I am really scared of what racist people might do with the ‘excuse’: “but I was just afraid that he might have Ebola because he/she is black”….
BREAKING: Michael Dunn, the convicted murderer of Jordan Davis, has been sentenced to life in prison plus 105 years for the 1st degree murder charges and three attempted murder charges, and a weapons charge. Florida got this one right.
So I just finished reading The 5th Wave and guys….omg it’s so good. I used to watch Men in Black, Independence Day and the tv show Roswell on repeat when I was a kid - alien invasion stories are always so epic. And this book is like all of these movies/shows together only much better.
“You do not even think of your own past as quite real; you dress it up, you gild it or blacken it, censor it, tinker with it…fictionalize it, in a word, and put it away on a shelf—your book, your romanced autobiography. We are all in the flight from the real reality.”—John Fowles, The French Lieutenant’s Woman (via larmoyante)
ok internet, here’s an interruption in your daily rugged white dude dashboard.
this is cykeem white:
cykeem is an up and coming male model who (i believe) just participated in his first fashion week. he is insanely beautiful.
i highly recommend you all join me in keeping a close eye in his career trajectory, because he’s an extremely talented model, and he is, imo, shockingly beautiful. everyone likes shockingly beautiful men, right? right.

So I watched Divergent yesterday and I’m still not over how amazing this movie is! I read the book (a long time ago) and I didn’t even like it that much tbh (I hated the unlogical ending) which is why it took me so long to watch the movie.
This is the first time I actually prefer the movie over the book. That Shaelene girl (sorry I can’t spell her name) is perfect as Tris and I liked this character much more in the movie than in the book. I won’t even mention the bae that is Theo James, but their chemistry is amazing - the casting was perfect, so, so much better than the lame ass Hunger Games cast (I’m still depressed over the guy they chose to be Peeta). I mean Kate Winslet is the evil, power obsessed Erudite chief, and she absolutely (and most obviously) kills it. And I’m happy that Zoe Kravitz was cast in it, too. I’m tired of the whiteness of most YA books adaptations. And the Soundtrack is so good as well. Everything is perfect about this movie!!
Anyways, I just wanted to express how much I enjoyed watching this movie and I think you should go watch it now. Bye.
