Stereotyping and the Whitewashing of POC acting parts? Yep
So basically, this happened to me yesterday.
A white man told me to give him ‘spice’, ‘attitude’ and ‘street’ during my audition.
And it makes me ache.
I am FUCKING DYING! “I need you to be Blacker………..”
When she started doing Oprah I fell the fuck out! and the end is so true!
We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

BTW, this is from the Beyonce documentary, and it is also my whole life at the moment. I spent a LONG TIME being polite, partially because I am used to abusive situations in which being diplomatic and Very Polite (in regards to white US culture) was how I escaped being hurt.
I still struggle with it sometimes, with being not-polite in order to get essential things I need to live or with communicating adequately with the people around me. It’s harder than one might think.
New response for next time some MRA tries to tone police me
Yes, omg this is EXACTLY how I feel
