Chimamamda Ngozi Adiche, We Should All Be Feminists
Black Culture is a phase for white folks.
I don’t want this to be true but it really is
Besides the “dressing like an idiot”, this post is spot on.
yeah we arent dressing like idiots. the rest is indeed spot on
WE’RE not dressing like idiots,
But these white folks in their imitation of us DEFINITELY are.
I mean, WTF do Miley even be having ON half the damn time?
Chicken cutlets hanging out a rubber suit and shit.
And yet, 40mil records sold later “our teens are giving them a pass”
Seriously, Rugrats was not fucking around.
People don’t give Rugrats enough credit for how progressive it was. I mean think about it.
- Chuckie, for most of the series is raised by a single father
- Angelica’s mother was a high ranking corporate executive
- Phil and Lil’s mom was a feminist
- She also breastfed them (which the show actually depicted)
- Tommy is half-Jewish and the show actually explored this part of his heritage
Seriously, this show was fucking amazing!! They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore…
Also don’t forget that Chuckie had an interracial family after the second movie.
How are you guys forgetting Susie? I mean her mom was a doctor and her dad was a writer for a famous Children’s TV show. Not to mention Kimmie was anything BUT submissive.
Remember when they had episodes that hit hard to issues kids might be dealing with? Chuckie only had his Dad on Mothers Day, Tommy had to deal with being outshadowed by a new baby brother, Phil and Lil were constantly being mixed up and then they had a couple episodes where they each found that even as a twin they were their own people.
Man Rugrats was the shit.
