You wanna know what scares people? Success. When you don’t make moves and when you don’t climb up the ladder, everybody loves you because you’re not competition.

Oh hey it’s back on my dash perfect!  I was just thinking of this the other day!

OHOHOHO wow the Korean alphabet is awesome. The people who designed it were geniuses and were obviously incredibly schooled in the morphology and phonology of their language. HNNGGG

wow

여러분 모두 한국어 쓰세요 한국어 좋음  

한국어, 한글은 보면 맨날쓰는거지만 볼수록,쓸수록 예뻐요..참으로 곱구나’3’♥

ㅇ어머 (감동

짱 이쁜 한국어 쓰세요 여러분

신기하게 가르치는군요 보고 신기했다 

FUN FACT!

IT WASN’T JUST ANY OLD DUDE WHO DECIDED, “HEY I WANT TO CREATE A KOREAN ALPHABET.”

IT WAS KING SEJONG, WHO ORDERED HIS ROYAL SCHOLARS TO CREATE THIS ALPHABET SO READING AND WRITING COULD BE ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE, EVEN THE PEASANTS. IT WAS PURPOSELY DESIGNED TO BE EASY TO LEARN.

SO SHOUT OUT TO KING SEJONG, WHO REALIZED BEFORE MANY OTHERS THE IMPORTANCE OF UNIVERSAL LITERACY.

YOU GO KING SEJONG, FOUR FOR YOU KING SEJONG

Watch: If people spoke about the West they way they do about Africa, this is what it would look like

Who doesn’t love a good ethnographic film about a mysterious tribe? A recently-rediscovered documentary — well, mockumentary — Other Countries, Other Customs: Kayonga Kagame Shows Us The World hones in on this very question as it makes a series “discoveries” about the far-off Alpine tribe, commonly known as the Europeans. 

At least, that’s what the film, which pokes enormous fun at the western narrative that for centuries has guided the study of seemingly “other” Africans, purports. The 1994 satire, produced by Australia’s public broadcast outlet SBS, gives viewers an inside look at how ridiculous a colonial “analysis” of another culture can be. 

The video is testimony to a universal truth: If dissected closely enough under a microscope, any culture can be reduced to appearing peculiar and crude.

"Alice in Arabia" Sounds Like a New Drama That's Going to Tell the Same Mind-Numbing Story →

missyasin:

We don’t know much about ABC Family’s new drama, “Alice in Arabia”, but I already have a feeling that it’s going to be pretty terrible.

The network, which targets a younger crowd, has ordered three drama pilots, and one of them follows the story of a “rebellious…

Anonymous asked: white pppl normally have prettier faces than black


Answer:

playcousin-deactivated20140410:

nahhhh they just built built a global power structure of white supremacy and a pillar of which is the glorification of eurocentric beauty standards that is impossible for most people of color to live up to so our beauty is often and fetishized or exoticized and only really praised when it adorns white faces (see lip injections ass injections tans ect ect) and then theres the thing about white people ageing like bananas but im not trying to be petty so bloop try again
