LET ME POINT OUT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE:
Here, Captain America - a hero in this film - is standing still while three other kinds of heroes, rush around to do their job. (this is in no way bashing Cap, he is simply standing still at this moment, most likely in shock/fatigue). A soldier, a BLACK COP and two firemen. While American’s super soldier is immobilized, our every day heroes are still fighting to ensure safety and peace. The fact that Marvel created this moment in their film, a film focused on the heroes, speaks yet again to their message that you don’t have to be a super, to be super.

I love my skin!Do you all understand how important this is? Do you?
So many dark skinned girls will look at this—or have seen this and will feel, even if by a little, better about themselves.
Sometimes all a kid needs is validation from someone who is just a little bit like them in some way or form (you know that word “representation”?) so they can easily believe and SEE they, too, can get to that level of whatever in their life. In this case a girl can say, “hey she’s dark like me and loves her skin. I can too!”
It’s one thing for someone in their everyday life to shower them with love and assurance that they’re fine in the skin they’re in, but it’s another thing to actually bare witness to it in the media you consume. It’s not just your mom being nice to you. The world thinks you’re fine the way you are too.
This is so important. They need to see women like this everywhere. They need to see themselves saying they love what society says they should hate. They NEED, TO, SEE, THIS.
It’s revolutionary to say you love what you got and didn’t ask for despite the world telling you otherwise.
So bless Sesame Street, man.
The Whip My Hair bit from Willow and now the loving your skin color bit with Lupita makes them a SUPER important children’s program.
This sign is in my doctors office above the scale and I really love it. It actually made me feel a lot better after reading it;____;
my friend and i had to break a social norm for our sociology class so we drove around and catcalled boys (and one male teacher omfg) and they all looked so alarmed and confused and like they thought we were straight up crazy it was priceless and it rlly highlighted the fact that women just expect to be harassed when walking down the street whereas guys are just completely taken aback by it
this is a really important thing for people to understand

reasons why halloween is the best holiday:
- you are not obliged to visit your relatives
- you are not obliged to get gifts for anyone
- people will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than halloween
- its the only day when its socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin
5. no one will look at you funny when you buy eighteen boxes of candy even though you fully intend to sit in the dark and eat them alone.
6. discount candy
Now this is the future of fashion.

It’s nice to see the covers laid out! It’s not how I normally see them, which is ripped and drenched with tears.
