All in Film and Television
Listen, the biggest issue with white-washing isn’t that some people think of the headline ‘White People Make Great Movie Stars’. The problem is that these people think ‘Non-White People Don’t’
"This is a Captain America story first and foremost, and I think it’s important to acknowledge that immediately, because this is still the BEST Avengers film we’ve ever had."
So, today marks a year since this post on Skyler. A lot has changed in that time. The show has gone even further down the rabbit hole so to speak. One thing that has changed in this year is that Breaking Bad is an even bigger phenomenon than it was then. With such popularity not only is the hate a little more exposed, but Skyler finally has a section of fans to come to her defense (among that section is the actress that plays Skyler - Anna Gunn). Yet, despite the defense force or the attack squad, there are still large misconceptions about Skyler. This post? Not only is it about how Skyler's motivations are ill-perceived by some people out there, but how her sister Marie has seemingly gotten caught in the crossfire.

Skyler White hate is really annoying to me. For the record I don’t think she should be glorified more than any other character on the show, but the pure hatred that some people have toward her is getting ridiculous. Here’s what I mean:
This episode had Walt at his absolute worst. His astronomical ego and carelessness pretty much ruined everything for him going forward.
And now I realize that’s why I love this character so much.
Breaking Bad is a really fucked up show. I’m getting better at introductions I promise.
This is another one of my unnecessarily long posts about television. It is about Jesse Pinkman (don't click if you don't want spoilers obviously).
Warning: If you haven't watched Dexter up to Season 6 yet, then, well, go do it.
I love Debra Morgan. And looking at her character, I don't see how anyone else can't feel the same way.
