I saw the stuff that was said. What we all believe is that ABC let Shonda try some things while Kerry was ‘less available’ and they backfired. Now ABC has demanded that Kerry go back to being front and center and others fall back as they should. The pregnancy is an excuse for her failure.
I just feel the need to say that this is what I and others have been saying since s3 was going on. This all started when Kerry’s pregnancy was the scapegoat as to why s3 was shortened (which…bullshit). And regardless of SR claiming that she was misquoted (which…bullshit again, because the THR interview was direct quotes written by Lesley Goldberg who is a known SR ass kisser, so why would she make SR look worse than she already does? Take a seat), it’s pretty fucking clear she was blaming the shitty s3 on KW pregnancy. It’s just a shame that the pregnancy is now being blamed for EVERYTHING, including world hunger, when that’s really not the case.
Back to my hole I go.
Anonymous said: You know, while the Rock may be a man of color, he's still 1) a man, so therefore, male privilege, and 2) he's white passing. He's light-skinned for his ethnicity of Black/Samoan, and he's culturally been acccepted by many white people as their idol. The Rock doesn't supoort his culture, he lives under White American culture, so therefore, his status as a PoC is invalidated, and in this case, ScarJo's victory is necessary. Hollywood is just corrupt in general when it comes to white favoritism.
"his status as a PoC is invalidated"
no. Now you are talking out of your ass. I’ve never seen him reject his non-white cultures, but even if he has that doesn’t take away his “poc card” (seriously, what the fuck). He’s still a person of color, and I think that’s pretty clear- even to his white fans. I don’t think you know how poc identities work.
ScarJo’s victory is necessary? If that movie benefits anyone at all, it is exclusively white women. Not women of color, and absolutely not people of color in general. If your feminism has to shit on people of color(including women of color) to be successful, then it’s worth nothing at all.
This anon is one of the most asinine and ridiculous I’ve ever seen.
Another day another ass backwards view of feminism and PoC
