can someone help a brother out?
what does tumblr find so funny about an image of a kid playing tabla and commenting about his own insecurities? why do whites on this site feel it right to make brown people the butt of the joke in any way they can?
THe joke isn’t that he’s brown. IT’s that he’s fucking weird looking. If it had been goofy looking white guy, the joke would have been just as funny, though still a pretty mean spirited joke
no it wouldn’t have you bitch ass white boy
if it was a white guy, they would praise him for playing the tabla and “appreciating the culture”
Brazilian Portuguese vs. European Portuguese
Thanks to my friends Gabriel (from Brazil) and Ricardo (from Portugal)!
Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
