"I have gotten so many letters from girls and boys who were so excited and proud to see a Black woman performing one of their favorite characters, “Elphaba”, in the musical Wicked. I was in Wicked for nearly 2 and a half years and I learned so much during that time.. .it wasn’t always easy and I was so busy in my own experience of working at the Gershwin theatre that I didn’t truly imagine so many kids would be inspired. 
"Oh, but the letters flew in, the artwork the fan sites, all the love that said "We’re so proud of you!" and "We can do it too!" I found out over the years that these things have meant alot to young people of color. "

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

THIS IS ALL SHADES OF PERFECT

I thought that was going to make me angry, but instead I gave a little cheer and reblogged this as fast as I could.

"Your life is perfect, you're an honors student"

  • Me: I'm upset because I wanted to get an A on this test and I got a B and I'm disappointed in myself
  • Friend: SHut up I have a D don't complain you bitch
  • Me: no no w-wait you don't understand, I understand that a B is a perfectly good grade and reflects my effort, but I live in an environment with a family who doesn't support that and who pressures me into getting better grades, and if I get B's, the consequences are not fun.
  • Friend: nooOOO BUT YOU ARE SMART FRIEND, DO NOT CONDESCEND TO US WITH YOUR FAKE ISSUES. SMART HONORS STUDENT MUST HAVE PERFECT LIFE
  • Me: no, actually my life's not that easy. I'm struggling with a perfectionist family, an anxiety disorder, a social life, expectations to keep a perfect GPA, and also regularly exercise and maintain a certain weight. I have a lot of things stressing me out and grades are one of them, your mother's reaction to your D is my mother's reaction to my B, I was raised in a household where my "gifted-and-talented" label cursed me from grade school to be expected to have a perfect, charmed, talented life. That doesn't mean my life is any of those things.
  • Friend: NO YOUR LIFE IS PERFECT SHUT UP DON'T COMPLAIN
  • Me: I guess I won't talk about it then. I'm sorry, your problems are more legit than mine. My bad.
  • Friend: God she's weird. She thinks HER life is hard.
  • Me the next week: Hey guys I got an A on this math test, I worked really hard and I'm super proud
  • Friend: Oh god of COURSE she got an A, she probably didn't even study. She's perfect. WHY ARE YOU SO PERFECT
  • Me: No actually I've struggled with this subject for a while and I used to be in the lower class but I worked really hard and studied and got a tutor and got my grade up and now I'm in honors....
  • Friend: But you're so smart you don't have to try like we do
  • Me: Am I even speaking the same language as you people? Do you not understand that I work just as hard as any of you? That my stresses and worries in life may be different but are just as valid? Am I being completely selfish by being proud of a grade I worked for and wanting credit for the fact that I worked /hard/ on it, it wasn't just LUCK? Is that so horrible of me?
  • Friend: ... well anyway congrats on your A we all knew you'd get one anyway lol
  • Parent: Gosh I don't understand how you could possibly have an anxiety problem or any stress, if you're stressed about grades or anything why don't you just TALK to someone? Friends? Us? Teachers? Counselors?
  • Me: I try but they shut me out and try to tell me that I don't have issues because I'm "perfect." You know what I just give up, I guess my problems aren't worthy enough for anyone to listen. I'm probably overreacting. I'm sorry.
  • Everyone: well isn't she such a little goody-goody with her perfect life gosh I just hate her and now she's acting all distant what the hell

I just LOVE the animation here. The part with just their hands looks real. And I love the way Gothel’s fingers go from motherly gentle touch to creepy and evil. Beautiful

#I really apprecciate this gif#because when you’re in an abusive relationship often nothing seems wrong until you try to stand up for yourself#that loving pat tranforms into a claw when she defends herself#but really it was a claw all along(via)
