History network in deal to remake 'Roots'

The network said Tuesday that it had reached a deal with Mark Wolper, whose father, David, made the 1977 “Roots” miniseries, to acquire the rights to remake it. The project is in development, meaning there’s a possibility it won’t be made, but the commitment makes it likely the new series will appear some time in 2015.

The first “Roots” series was a television sensation, gripping the country with its story of generations of a slave family.

History has been particularly successful with miniseries lately, including “The Bible” and “Hatfields & McCoys.”

Oh, goodie! More racist fashion editorials! 

This time, it’s Diva magazine’s photospread entitled “Be My Slave.” Pakistani designer Aamna Aqeel decided, for whatever reason, that the best way to showcase her fashions was via these seriously offensive images, which feature a white model clad in chic duds, accompanied by a little boy playing her “slave.

When confronted about the photos, Aqeel insisted that the spread’s concept was to bring awareness to child labor, and that the fact that the boy is dark-skinned and dressed in ~*tribal*~ gear was purely coincidental. 

However International Herald Tribune writer Salima Feerasta has quite rightly called bullshit on Aqeel’s flimsly excuse, sayingIt’s facetious of the designer to claim that she was trying to stimulate a debate on child labour. The model wearing her clothes is clearly comfortable with her dominant position. She is not made up in a way that shows her to be the villain of the piece. The use of a dark skinned child in a shoot entitled “Be My Slave” certainly reeks of racism, however much the designer may deny it. And if anything, the shoot seems to condone child labour.”

What do you guys think? Will the fashion world ever get a clue?

What the ever-loving fuck.

this is disgusting to me. 
very disgusting. 
“freedom hair” oh really.

He’s going to adopt another daughter from Ethiopia SO he can have more practice?
What the actual fuck?

I don’t think he was saying he was adopting another daughter for more practice, but that since he and his wife were on the wait list he’d (hopefully) have more practice.
I do find this cute, the entire thing including the freedom hair bit. 
The most disgusting thing about is that it’s disgustingly adorable.



Why Ethopia? Why rip that child from their culture? Why didn’t you adopt a baby from England or Scotland.
Seriously white folk.
Stop adopting “exotic” babies. If you gotta adopt a POC baby, there are so in the adoption system where you live! There are lots of them.

and mothafucka you dont know how to use a damn comb?
you comb her hair with a fuckin fork?

The commentary- I love it, lmao. When I originally showed the article to a friend she told me she didn’t see what was wrong with it. I love Tumblr for letting me know I am not alone.
using a fork to do her hair when you know you would never even THINK of putting an eating utensil in a white child’s hair pisses me off to new levels.  The fact that they clearly didn’t consult with nonwhites about how to do the child’s hair bothers me; they don’t have Black friends they can openly talk to about these things, but were determined to get a Black baby? And, the icing on the cake… putting this foolishness on display in a magazine…

A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement… Polka dots are a way to infinity.
