Their silence was worth a million words
The other reason why Steve McQueen is a boss!
he is Tha dude!!
Those other directors were very quiet when it came to casting people of color which matched the demographic of the area they filmed in…
He snatched all of their edges and they sat there quiet as church mice.. These men who yield power in this industry were afraid to own their shit..
And then commence the uncomfortable silence of the white directors when they know that they have just been put in their place, by the very minority that they seek to marginalize. LOVE THIS! Will ALWAYS reblog this everytime this makes it to my dash.
If you don’t like costume theater you’re wrong.
“Kuch rishte ajeeb hi dor mein bandhe hote hain Takrar se shuru hote hain, nafrat ke saaye mein panapte hain Girte hain, padte hain, par kaayam rahte hain. Nafrat badhti jaati hai aur rishte ki gaanth aur gehri hoti jaati hai. Itni ki ek din nafrat bhhi aur badhne se sharma jati hai, aur woh rishta sirf ek bandhan ban ke rah jaata hai. Lekin sirf nafrat waala. Kabhi kabhi aisa lagta hai jaise nafrat ke us maahol mein kuchh to hai Jo humse kehta hai ki is ansune, anjaane se, ankahe se ehsaas ko ek mauka to do. Par jis rishte ki neenv hi nafrat pe rakhi gayi ho, usse kuch bhi ummeed lagana Naadani nahi to aur kya hoga? Aur shayad yeh naadaani hum kar baithe hain Warna kyun itni nafrat ke baawjood humein aapki yaad aa rahi hai? Kyun hum aapse ladte hain, jhagadte hain lekin aapke jaane ke baad aap hi ki raah dekhte hain…hawaaon se aapki baatein karte hain…”
[Sorry THIS ONLY WORKS ONCE OVER :( I made this a long time ago and spent like infinite hours (xo) on it but then didn’t post cause it wouldn’t work more than once over but I think I’ll post it now because it is like the ultimate tribute and showcase of the epic journey of nafrat to pyaar. Here’s to Arnav and Khushi’s everlasting love!]
