White Lies: Race and the Myths of Whiteness
#HouseOfCards reminds me of The Wire. Not sure if it can be explained as a ‘survivalist narrative’ but it comes close. It depicts humans trying to survive in the mean streets of Capital Hill. Those streets can chew you up and spit you out. Even if you know how to play the game, the dramatics and choices involved are all based on an illusion.
Underwood, the main character understands power in its rawest form.
“Hushpuppy has a resilient spirit. She is indeed a miniature version of the ‘strong black female matriarch,’ racist and sexist representations have depicted from slavery on into the present day. Like the unrealistic racist/sexist stereotypical images of grown black women in the recent blockbuster film The Help who confront all manner of exploitation and oppression only to triumph in this ridiculous macabre fantasy of modern primitivism, Hushpuppy is a survivor.”
Somewhat of a shame that some people’s imaginations are to be forever tied to their childhood defense mechanisms. May they find some semblance of compassion for themselves….their child like hardened hearted selves.
heya ppl I’m doing awesome,I’ve literally dropped 10 lbs my first week with http://apps.facebook.com/hcgslim/ FB sponsored supplement. Has anyone else tried it? If not, I HIGHLY recommend!
But history IS in actuality, rumor. I recommend you read Kant’s findings on memory. It finds that even if someone was there to bear witness the reproduction of said event is only that…a reproduction. In my opinion, the book and its possible findings are not the issue here. With that said, I’ll leave you to do the research.
I do find it interesting you could only relegate the topic at hand to “something negative,” leaving me to summize that your equating negative with homosexuality and positive as heterosexuality. Which also leads me to question why we can’t have a discussion on sexuality in mature fashion by using our words. If we can’t come to the table to have these discussions as mature intelligent adults, then we shall remain powerless to the ills of a power structure built to keep us from uniting.
Sweeping this topic under the rug does not, I repeat, does not mean that it didn’t happen, hasn’t happened, will not happen and does not need to be discussed. And what I say “it” I do mean that human beings who are in the public eye or have lead movements have lived their lives as anything outside of the societally acceptable norm. If we cannot have mature understandings of humans as an entire human being living within an entire society (then and now), we shall forever relive the issues of sexuality, homophobia, mysogyny, etc…
But you could have also meant something entirely different than what I am reading into it.
