I remember watching this movie when i was like 7 years old and at the time i had no idea as to why cuba teared up cause in my head i was like “cuba calm down. he was just messing around, you didn’t die.” But now that i’m older and i see what an officer is capable of doing and getting away with, i don’t blame him for being so emotional and scared
And to see one of your own do that to you

thisislostinlace: nablayah: idilardayacad: maleehaisconfused: spikefuckingjonze: anyone else noticing a trend here? lol didn’t know ancient egyptians looked like mayo… RHAMSES IM CHOKING LIKE THEY DIDNT SEE THE STATUES OR NOTHING Ok but of course the servants and thieves are black ok i see yall Brown Jesus from Palestine, what the fuck is this! Tuya and Zipporah are Sub Saharan unarguable black. Like you Zipporah’s familial descendants are still living a pastoral life in the same place she was from, and they still look like her. Queen Tuya is black, in fact her tomb was found after the front load of white supremacist archeologist raided Egypt, so surprisingly enough her features were kept in tact on all of her antiquities as was her full name which also described where she was from…modern day Ethopian/Chad/Sudan area. No matter how much fake tanner, pretty pretty hair pieces, faux box braids Sigourney will look ridiculous. So it’s real nice to know that every reoccurring woman of visible East African descent is non existent and every male of visible African decent is a poor criminal. Awesome, and super accurate.

The Atlantic’s In Focus blog is doing a great photo series on America in the early 1970s. Last week they took a look at documentary photographer John H. White, who went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photojournalism in 1982. Here’s a quick look at the series, and you can see the whole thing over at The Atlantic.
