    Tired Of Hearing About Ferguson And Michael Brown? How About When It’s Jesse Williams Talking?

    When it comes to tragic events like the August 2014 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Missouri, we have to be critical of not just what the media is reporting but also of how they’re framing the story. We wouldn’t usually rely on a celebrity to explain this type of thing, but Jesse Williams (of “Grey’s Anatomy”) totally gets it and makes some excellent comments in the clip below.

    When people reference your race when describing your career, is that a point of pride or is that something you think is overplayed in the media as part of your story, or is it a combination?

    Don Cheadle: I don’t know, I don’t often… I guess I get asked that question sporadically. It’s not often what is led with, you know, and I don’t know if that’s just trepidation to dip their toe in the pool about that subject matter, or if it’s just because it’s less relevant than the work that I’m doing. But I mean it obviously comes up. [x]

    ↳ F → feminism & representation
    "I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place, and crash through the glass ceiling. And a lot of them did that believing that they had to trade on their femininity and that they had to be a man and tap into whatever they believed was a masculine trait to hang in the boys’ room, to get the "keys to the kingdom" as it were. And what’s beautiful about Jessica Pearson is that she is the next level to that when, really, feminism is about being all that you are and not having to trade one thing for another on your way up, or apologize." - Gina Torres (about her character Jessica Pearson, on Suits)

    This Guy Went From Making Beer Ads To Making Memes To Change How You Think About Beer Ads

    The average person spends over seven hours a day interacting with media and is exposed to over 5,000 marketing messages daily. Think of the last ad you saw. Was it bad for the world? Or good? And how can you tell? The founder of Beware of Images, Sergio “Topo” Toporek, says, “The only truly dangerous media is the unexamined media,” and he is creating a film to help us all analyze it more critically.
