I just.. THIS SENTENCE WILL IGNITE AND FUEL MANY DREAMS
I have scrolled down this about 5 times and it has almost made me cry every time omg
When they panned to Benedict crying, my heart cried
Ok, so I’ve seen this on my dash several times in the past few months, and I’m tired of it: can we maybe NOT take the public struggles and triumphs of a black woman and make it all about a British white guy’s feelings? Like, I’m sorry, her speech wasn’t enough to make your heart cry until you saw Benedict Cumberbatch shedding tears over it? But seriously, if anything should have twisted the knife that Lupita’s speech had jammed into your heart, it was Chiwetel Ejiofor’s expression in the foreground. Compared to the the pain, the pride, the joy on that man’s face…if the white guy crying in the background was what got you, then you weren’t paying attention to what the woman said in the first place.
Boom goes the dynamite
do you ever have second-hand obsessions
like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend
Finally I know what to call it!!!
Throwback to when this happened when I saw the London production of Les Misérables. Understudy Christopher Jacobsen was Jean Valjean and Alexia Khadime (The Book of Mormon) was Éponine (interestingly, I have never seen a white woman play Éponine – and two of three of the women I’ve seen played Nabulungi in The Book of Mormon).
Both Carpenter and Nikki M James were the two people I really hoped would be involved in the revival. So I can’t wait to see them both again in August!

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
~Plato’s The Symposium.
