Let it flow through you.
deleted all the claptrap, shows over kittykats!
While I’m sure this is true (and extremely offensive) in some cases, I’d like to point out that I felt, in the moment, that she delivered an acceptance speech far more succinct and conveying intense depth of feeling, far more gracefully than I ever could, and under conditions of stress I can’t even imagine. I stared blinking at the screen, humbled. She outshone all her peers in this regard, embodying the best that Hollywood glamour is supposed to offer, and did so as a first-time winner. It could have been about race, but it also could have been about what an accomplished individual she is. My god, but she was articulate. Period.
And I’m so damn grateful we’re not just talking about how pretty she is. Though god knows she is outrageously beautiful.
Normally, I appreciate these reality checks, but I think doing so in this case diminishes how exceptional that speech was. It wasn’t “gee whiz, look, a black lady speaking words.” It was “OMG I AM MOVED TO TEARS BY YOUR GRACE AND POISE AND MESSAGE YOU ARE AMBASSADOR FOR HUMANS REPRESENT ME.” That’s all I’m saying.(via snickr)
That’s pretty raisins, bro
