In California, a small “Mexican-Hindu” community rose up in the early 20th century, as male immigrants from Punjab – mostly Sikh – married Hispanic women and started uniquely bicultural families. U.S. immigration laws restricted South Asian women from immigrating to America, while miscegenation laws forbid South Asian men from marrying white women. Marriages between South Asian men and Hispanic women – classified by law within the same racial category – resulted in bicultural children with names like “Maria Singh” and “Jose Rai.”

Adapt to this

LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT

I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe

in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense

Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.

thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.

A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.

This

Yep. This was some white nonsense for real

And literally 2 minutes before that, the long, lingering shot on Darwin with Shaw’s “live like slaves” line. *rolls eyes*

And they cut the after-credits scene where he was SUPPOSED to come back in his ultimate form.

It was complete bullshit.

Not to mention the only other Black person on the team became a villain.

That movie is such a goddamn mess

Haha, so fun fact: in X-factor the team runs into Darwin, and at first they are confused because he’s looks different then they remembered, his skin is lighter!  They discuss this, and come to the conclusion that his power detected racism as a threat to his life and lightened his skin so that he’d pass as white.

When he joins the group and feels like he has a safer and more welcoming community his skin starts to darken again.

It’s nice when X-men and spinoffs remember that the mutants are supposed to be a metaphor.

queerpunkfest:

FIRST ANNUAL QUEER PUNK FESTMay 2014Organized and run exclusively by qpoc!&gt; first night: DANCE PARTY, MOVIE SCREENING, MINGLING // next day: WORKSHOPS, TABLING, ART INSTALLATIONS, BANDS, DRAG, SPOKEN WORD, PERFORMANCE ART &lt;
MISSION:Queer Punk Fest is a FREE event taking place in Southern California. It is born out of the need for queer punks and radical queers to carve out a space in a heavily white-macho radical/anarchist-punk scene. Queer Punk Fest will mark the beginning of the end of the heteronormative scene we have all day-dreamed of escaping from. In a scene that has become another costume party for white hipsters and suburban kids, we reclaim the power of punk and DIY culture to create alternative spaces free from oppression and social hierarchies. As a collective run by queer and trans people of color, we recognize that punk was born out of this necessity to create alternative spaces that challenge mainstream ideals. We aim to be the hammer that will drive the final nail into the coffin of a scene that has tokenized, abused, and misunderstood our existence. We see the current punk and anarchist/radical community as a reflection, not a rejection, of the very same ideals that marginalize our everyday existence. It is because of this that Queer Punk Fest will serve as the catalyst towards the coup d’état of this white heteronormative scene. Queer Punk Fest will be an intersectional, trans-inclusive, decolonial extravaganza. As social misfits and agitators, revenge is our first objective. C’mon Southern California, let’s get sickeniiiiiiiing
APPLICATION:Queer Punk Fest is currently looking for queer bands, workshops, spoken word artists, performance artists, drag queens, organizations to table, a DJ for our dance party, artists to install their work, and ideas and suggestions. We are only taking applications from queer/trans-identified individuals. &gt; If you would like to join us, please send your name, identity, contact information, a brief description and example(s) (if possible) of your work to: queerpunkfest@gmail.com &lt; We will not respond to any applications sent elsewhere. Please include what you’re applying for in the subject line! Okay, sick! Hope to hear from lots of you!
LOCATION:Funny story, we don’t have one yet…. HELP US! We need a big space with rooms for workshops and a common area for tabling and performances. We’re also aiming for parts of L.A. that are accessible by public transport. Aaand because we don’t have a location yet, we don’t have a set date, but we’re aiming for the second weekend of May! We’ll update the tumblr page with info about the location and date when we can finalize them.

What the Mexican media is doing is taking something Lupita Nyong’o worked very hard for and making it about Mexico… knowing fully well that, had Lupita tried to start a career in Mexico, she wouldn’t have been able to.

This is an opportunity she wouldn’t have been able to get and a success she would have more than likely never have achieved in Mexico.

It’s height of hypocrisy to try and talk about how Lupita Nyong’o is a Mexican success when Mexico usually can’t be bothered to acknowledge that there are black people (and not just the rare walking stereotype) currently existing in Mexico.

How many afro-mexicanas with dreams of being actresses have been denied their dreams because theirs wasn’t the right look (they weren’t proper mexicanas) by the same media that now wants to lay a claim on Lupita Nyong’o and her talent?

It’s sooooo many folks who need to have a damn SEAT when it comes to Lupita. 

Bolding mine.
