I'm Clare. I'm the same age as the Nintendo 64. I probably can't sum myself up well (but I do have an about page).
I love puns, in case you hadn't noticed.

That’s how many speaking roles in Hollywood hits are going to Latinos. For the record, Latinos make up 16% of the U.S. population. Representation matters. (via micdotcom)

Even more alarming is that, when Latino actors are cast, they are by far more likely than any other group to be sexualized, either by revealing clothing or by being defined in the screenplay as attractive. Indeed, 36% of Hispanic actors are displayed in some sort of sexualized attire, the highest of any group looked at in the study. Hollywood seems to think America is not interested in stories about Latinos, unless they are taking their clothes off.

Let’s talk about this. Let’s talk about how most of those roles are to be hypersexualized maids, spicy armcandy love interests, and exotic criminals. Let’s talk about how many of these roles use stereotypes to make these characters as the butt of the joke. Let’s talk about though how most of those roles go to light skinned and white Latinas. Let’s talk about how shitty the representation that Latinxs do have is pretty much restricted to bullshit and biopics.

I don’t think that people generally realise what motion picture industry has done to the American Indian, as a matter of fact, all ethnic groups, all minorities, all non-whites. And people just simply don’t realise, just take it for granted that that’s the way people are going to be presented and these clichés are just, I mean on this network every night, well perhaps not every night, but you can see silly renditions of human behaviour, the leering Filipino houseboy, the wily Japanese, the kook or the gook, black man, stupid Indian. It just goes on and on and on. And people actually don’t realise how deeply people are injured by seeing themselves represented, not so much the adults, who are already inured to that kind of pain and pressure, but children. Indian children seeing Indians represented as savage, as ugly, as nasty, vicious, treacherous, drunken. They grow up only with a negative image of themselves and it lasts a lifetime.
