An Uninteresting Girl

I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

"Mane Event.  Yes, we are open.  No, I don’t have any openings today.  (pause) I can put you down for tomorrow at 2pm.  See you then. "  (Kara)
Well one more business has reopened since the move.  Jordan is working on the grocery store and Racquel is still working on Ni’Chalet’s.

The Mane Event Has Reopened! (Photostory)

 Kara has finally reopened the Mane Event and the residents of Morristown are very happy.  It promises to be a very busy day at the salon.

image
Cassandra and her daughter Christina are the first to arrive.  Halle arrives shortly thereafter.

image
Christina is getting ready to get her hair washed.

image
Cassandra is considering a new hairstyle.

image
"It’s just so dry.  I’m hoping we can do something to fix that."  (Halle)
"That’s not a problem.  I have a new leave on conditioner that will fix that."  (India)

image
Melanie and Nicole have entered the salon.

image
"Hello ladies."  (Kara)
"Hello.  We are a little early."  (Melanie)
"Have a seat.  It won’t be too long."  (Kara)

image
image
"Hello Melanie and Nicole.  How was your holiday?"  (India)

image
"Hello India.  It was pretty quiet.  This one was went to Disneyworld."  (Melanie)
"Wow! Disneyworld.  That sounds like fun."  (India)
"It was so much fun!  I want to go again."  (Nicole)
image
India finishes washing Halle’s hair and Kara starts working on Nicole’s hair.

image
"So this is the conditioner I was talking about.  Doesn’t it smell good?"  (India)

image
Cassandra decides to just get a wash and set.  She was feeling a little daring, thinking about getting a cute little haircut, but she chickened out in the end.

image
"So what did you have in mind for little Miss Nicole?"  (Kara)

image
"Nothing too elaborate.  We just need it clean and manageable for school."  (Melanie)

image
"Ooh mom, can I get Shirley Temple curls?"  (Nicole)
"For school?  Nooo.  That’s only for special occasions." (Melanie)
Nicole continued to plead her case, but it was a losing cause.

image
In the meantime, Autumn, Darius’ administrative assistant, has slipped in with her daughter.

image
"Mommy, am I getting my hair done, too?"  (Juanita)
"I hope so.  I didn’t tell them about your hair, yet."  (Autumn)
"I hope so, too.  I want hair like a princess."  (Juanita)

image
"I know you are disappointed about the curls, but we will make it look really pretty.  Okay?"  (Kara)
"Okay."  (Nicole)
BRINGGGGG!  BRINGGGG!
