Stories of Hope

The tumblr of a 19-year-old, afro-sporting Northwestern student named Hope.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes - Romans 1:16

Currently reading: Good Omens - Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel 

Speaking their lines vs the final product

Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?

Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a  dedicated  motherfucking professional

Vin Diesel made you fall in love with a character who said 4 words. The CGI brought his words to visual life, but they’d be meaningless without his amazing command of voice. 

Basically vin Diesel had the challenge of:
"OK, this is the message you’re trying to convey"
"Alright"
"But you can only ONLY say I am Groot”

Because every time Groot says “I am Groot” he means something and vin Diesel had to convey that message as best he could with only those 3 words through inflection, emphasis, and emotion.

No. Don’t you even try to pull that shit. White people CREATED this system and benefit more than anyone from the system. If I am saying they should recognize this and help dismantle it, you’re calling ME the fucking racist? The system that is disproportionately in the favor of white people, BUT I AM THE RACIST? Stop trying to fucking cop out. So many white people use this fucking cop out and it’s the reason why so many of my people are still suffering because we don’t have the support to change the way this country operates base on race. If all you have to literally do is call out the fucking system and acknowledge that you have it better than others on average, I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

All it takes is one event to set a precedent. If Darren Wilson is arrested for, charged with, and convicted of the murder of Michael Brown, then that means ALL cops can be held accountable for their actions. It means the people can ALWAYS rise up and fight back against police brutality. 

That’s what the cops and National Guard in Ferguson is fighting against. They don’t want this standard to be set.

There is no greater evidence of how tragic things are for dark-skinned women in Hollywood than the fact that they can’t even get hired to play dark-skinned women.

Marc Lamont Hill on the casting of Nina Simone

Because this sentence breaks my heart while filling me with joy. Because dark-skinned women are creating our own work and need not be left to a “Hollywood” standard. Because we stand on the backs of those who came before and serve as a bridge for those who follow.

It’s important that people see this

I dont even know who this is, but the media pulls shit like this often and it should be publicized.

mark duggan was the young man shot to death by the met police here in london, and whose murder, now ruled controversially as ‘legal’, sparked the summer riots a few years back.
