Apparently Karla Souza’s character, Laurel Castillo, on How to Get Away With Murder was originally written as Laurel Wilden, a white character, but she asked the writers if they could change her into a latina and they did.

Karla Souza could’ve easily played a white character on the show. Instead she wanted to play as a latina. She wanted to break away from the stereotypical latino roles you always see on tv. 

A Latina is playing a smart and quiet law school student on a hit show. You don’t see that often. You don’t really see latinos playing these parts in Hollywood. I’m so excited about the latino representation showing on my tv. Especially when it’s successful women in law or medicine. 

Also I think it’s safe to say I’m officially a fan of Karla Souza.

LOOK I’M NOT TRYNA TAKE AWAY FROM WHAT THE OP IS SAYING  BC THEYRE RIGHT BUT KARLA IS ALSO VERY WHITE  WHICH I THINK IS P. IMPORTANT AS TO WHY SHE’S GETTING THE ROLES SHE’S GETTING  LIKE GOOD FOR HER I’M EXCITED FOR HER  +BUT WE CAN’T FORGET THAT AN ACTOR WHO’S A LOT DARKER THAN HER WOULD NEVER GET ROLES LIKE THIS

"For one thing, there’s Dido’ fetishization by the two Ashford brothers. While one brother sees her simply as an exotic "other" whom he can bed without forming attachments — very different from the attitude toward white women of the same time period, whose virtue was unequivocal and untouchable — the other is downright violent in his conception of Dido, calling her "repulsive" but still expressing a desire to rape her. The scenes in which that older, more violent Ashford brother addresses Dido directly, giving voice to his unbridled racism and at one point assaulting her, are indisputably disturbing, not just because they represent a disgusting and brutal history but because I see remnants of those attitudes today in the way the world perceives the bodies of black and brown women: exotic, sexual, sensual, different objects. We see it in the way Miley Cyrus and almost any given white pop star (Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke, for example) use black women’s bodies as props in music videos: as something to be appropriated and used for one’s own pleasure and then cast off in pursuit of the next trend. In addition, the rape of black women still does not seem to carry much horror in 2014; it was most recently a punchline on Saturday Night Live, and last year Russell Simmons was forced to apologize for his highly offensive "Harriet Tubman Sex Tape." None of this is too different from the way the Ashford brothers perceive Dido’s body: as an exotic "other" not worthy of love or respect but merely of lust, and lust framed in a particularly problematic racism."

A recent study from Duke University’s School of Medicine found that the available HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, don’t prevent the HPV infections common in black women. Gardasil and Cervarix protect against HPV 16, HPV 18, HPV 6 and HPV 11 — strains that are notorious for causing cervical cancers. The only problem? HPV 16 and 18 occur more in white women than black women, who tend to show HPV subtypes 33, 35, 58, and 68. So while white women might also not be protected from all strains by the HPV vaccine, they are certainly in a much safer position than black women.

“HPV 16 and 18 occur less frequently in African-Americans than in whites,” Dr. Cathrine Hoyo, associate professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Duke University School of Medicine, told Health Day. Duke’s study looked at 600 abnormal pap smears and found that almost 86 percent of the women examined had detectable HPV. Yet, as Hoyo explained, “African-Americans had half the HPV 16 and 18 frequency as whites did.”

As Bustle reported last summer, this disparity may be the reason that African-American women are 20 percent more likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer…It’s upsetting that Gardasil leaves many black women without adequate protection against HPV and cervical cancer. Conflating the healthcare needs of white women with those of black women keeps us from accessing adequate treatment in multiple areas, and this is especially troubling when it comes to HPV. Had there been funding for a vaccine specifically designed for my black, female body, a shot that protects my body as well as it does white women, I might very well be HPV-free today.

black feminists need to make a list of all the shit that we’ve invented that’s been stolen from us by white and non-black feminists.

appropriation of the term intersectionality

appropriation of the symbol for black feminism

add other things that y’all can think of to this list

I’ve noticed people taking Carefree Black Girl and inserting themselves in it. Which bothers me.

omg what the hell?

misusing the term carefree black girl

inserting themselves in the natural hair movement 

Yeah. They take out Black and replace it with Carefree *insert race/ethnicity here* Girl. Which is so blatantly wrong. Like, how lazy do you have to be? Create your own shit.

Oh please. When you work for a company you represent them. If sororities have a rule about places in which their members can’t take pictures in their letters I’m quite sure a national company has rules about how you are to represent their brand.

Also, he’s a fucking adult. Sometimes when you’re adult you do things. And sometimes those things have consequences.
