don't touch me

My name's Helen. I obsess over everyone.

I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

Israeli shelling killed at least 15 Palestinians sheltering in Jabaliya Girls Elementary School in Gaza’s biggest refugee camp on Wednesday, the Health Ministry said.

Some 3,300 Palestinians, including many women and children, were taking refuge in the building in Jabaliya refugee camp when it came under fire around dawn, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said.

There were blood splattered floors and mattresses inside classrooms and survivors picked through shattered glass and debris for flesh and body parts to bury.

"Children, women and men killed & injured as they slept in place where they should have been safe and protected. They were not. Intolerable." said UNRWA chief Pierre Krahenbuhl on Twitter, adding"This is 6th time one of our @UNRWA schools has been struck. Our staff leading int’l response are being killed. This is a breaking point."
