*upper middle class fucker voice* But you have [one nice thing] so how are you poor
One of the things that really bothers me about this thinking is that most really poor people rent apartments and most apartments come WITH appliances as an amenity to help rent them out. Every apartment I’ve ever lived in CAME with a fridge, I’ve never had to buy one.

what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her. and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people.
what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies — runnereight

My [scattered] thoughts on Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer. This was originally just a defence of the film’s ending—which I’ve seen widely criticised—because I think it’s brilliant and necessary and worth defending. But… then there’s everything else.
[major spoilers, of course]
brilliant evaluation of an excellent film

and here we have a white fool (cracker longbackus in scientific terms) in his preferred environment. i.e. invading poc spaces.note the sloppy mimicry, the shoddy attempt at camouflage. oddly enough, the white fool often believes his minstrel show will accepted without question, but as always…he been seent.
stay tuned for the next foray into pathetic crackertivities
Michel Foucault, Truth and Juridical Forms (via foucault-the-haters)
Protip for understanding panopticism: the ‘watchtower’ doesn’t exist, at least not in a centralised form - he’s merely using an ideal type here. The panoptic guardian is the individual themselves onto others because the gaze is normalised. Once you understand the individual as being both the product, the object and the subject of the gaze, Foucault’s theory of power quickly begins to make a lot more sense.
