Oppressed people do not and should not have to explain their oppression to their oppressor, nor tailor their resistance to the comfort of the oppressors and their supporters.

See the materialism of this world for what it is.. it’s just a rest stop, just some shade, on the Highway to the Hereafter, Remember to treat is as such.
May Allah guide us the straight path!
This mentality, of treating our one life here on this planet as though it’s some sort of transit stop, is rather dangerous imo.
Make the most of your life. Live it like it’s all you’ve got.
Seriously, it is driving me up the wall! The majority of Tumblrs have only one issue they care about and as long as that issue is resolved in their favor, they’re okay with everything else that’s spiraling out of control.
Holy shit is this accurate.
From what I’ve seen on Twitter, there is not that much talk on the whitewashing of Oberyn Martell.
And it kind of makes me want to spam the GOT’s and HBO official Twitter accounts with tweets about this - with a tag specifically dedicated to this (like the one there already is on Tumblr called #themartellsarenotwhite or House Martell’s sigil reworded by some as #unbleachedunbentunbroken. I’ll just go with what most people - between the two tags - will choose. It’d be nice, in case you reblog this, if you could specify which tag would you prefer so I can have an idea).
I just think that speaking about this only on Tumblr won’t bring enough attention and definitely won’t make HBO pay attention. It might be too late for the casting of Oberyn Martell but, you can call me deluded, I still have a little hope for the other members of House Martell and the Sand Snakes.
The least we can do is flood them with messages about how we are really disappointed with Oberyn Martell’s casting. It’s not like the message wouldn’t have reached them if it actually works (and it will personally make me feel better).
For those who are interested in making their qualms heard in other ways too, you can also email HBO here.
Please reblog and spread the word.
seriously, why does no one talk about this movie?
June 7th, 1942: Edward Hopper completes his best known painting, the seminal Nighthawks. When asked by a Chicago Tribute reporter about the philosophical meaning behind the diner having no clearly visible exits Hopper responded, “Shit. Fuck. I did it again. Goddamnit. Fuck. Not again. I did it again. Shit.” and slammed his hat on his leg.
