you people have absolutely no critical thinking skills
one is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized and steteotyped ‘interpretation’ of native american imagery, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of native culture that for white people to consume and use as they please, while actual native americans are having their culture, languages and land stolen from them.
the other is a fictional comic book character, playing a fictional race of peoples, that is loosely based on norse myth. without Idris playing that role, the entire population of asgard would have been as pale as the driven snow. this is a film meant for a modern, global audience but you want less PoC in it? and if you’re going to argue that it would have been ‘historically accurate’ for all norse gods to be white then you can go throw yourself into a pile of horse shit because the idea that anything in the Thor movies or comics is ‘historically accurate’ is extremely ludicrous.
so you can all stop with the inane comparisons now and go back to eating your mayo and crackers or whatever it is white people do when they’re not screwing over other races.

You people have absolutely no critical thinking critical thinking skills.
One is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized ‘interpretation’ of a norse god, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of norse culture for Pickers of Cotton to use as entertainment as they please while northern europeans are having their culture, nations and women raped by immigrants. 
The other is a costume made for children to wear on halloween that is loosely based on old American Indian clothing. 
So you can stop with the inane complaining now and go back to eating fried chicken and watermelon or whatever it is black people do when they’re not sponging off of the achievements of other races.  

Don’t you love it when racists prove your point for you and look like absolutely the most deplorable kind of human trash while doing so?

dichotomization:

On June 11th 1963, Thích Quảng Đức, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, sat down in the middle of a busy intersection in Saigon, covered himself in gasoline and he then ignited a match, and set himself on fire. Đức burned to death in a matter of minutes, and he was immortalized in a famous photograph taken by a reporter who was in Vietnam in order to photograph the war. All those who saw this spectacle were taken by the fact that Duc did not make a sound while burning to death. Đức was protesting President Ngô Đình Diệm’s administration for oppressing the Buddhist religion.

holy shit. 

I was waiting for this to come up on my dash. You also can’t forget that his whole body burned, but his heart remained intact and did not burn.
