Dean Thomas became an auror and was assigned to be the magical guard of the Royal Family. There always had to be one wizard guarding the muggle prime minister and one guarding the Royal Family. Between his dad having been a muggle army officer and his excellent track record, he was the perfect candidate for the job. He didn’t think that it would be a particularly difficult mission beyond actually protecting the Royal Family. He knew how to dress and act like a muggle, he knew how to blend in a group of soldiers and his handler, Ron, would never lead him astray.  

Then it started. He noticed it the first time when he felt his neck tense up in a way it hadn’t since he was on the run, but Dean dismissed it as paranoia because the war was over and there were no more Death Eaters. Any “blood-purist” groups were arrested before they had the chance to do anything. Then he felt it again. Then another time. The fourth time he noticed the uneasy stare of the man behind the camera he started to consider his options and what he could do next. Undercover meant that he couldn’t contact his friends and family for the duration of his mission, so that option was out. Embarrassment stopped him from telling Ron or the Head Auror, Harry. Though they were his friends and he’d fought alongside them in the Battle of Hogwarts, he always felt weak complaining to those two. They had been fighting pure evil with Hermione since they were eleven. Every year finding new ways to endanger their lives for the sake of others. They would help but he couldn’t go to them.

 Then he heard about him. The deerstalker detective. The man’s abilities had garnered him much fame in both the Wizarding and muggle worlds. He had successfully faked his own death for two years with no one doubting him at all. Not only that but the man’s skills were truly astounding. Something not even wizards could achieve because it wasn’t magic no matter how many times muggles claimed that it was. It was simple deduction in order to solve mysteries. And Dean had a mystery that needed solving. 

So Dean Thomas made a decision, he would contact Sherlock Holmes for help.

Black Panther is a cartoon series by Marvel Animation in partnership with BET, which was blocked from being aired in the US. The creators manipulated the establishment into producing it, but only after it was financed and previewed did the establishment realize what had happened and then yanked it from airing. It is a most political savy cartoon and DVD sales have been atop the charts of comic movies since its release, making it a favorite of many. If you understand the West and its relationship to Afrika this will be one of your favs too!

Alfre Woodard, Kerry Washington, Jill Scott and Djimon Hounsou starring as Black Panther, round out an all star cast for this wonderful and valuable work of art. Watch, learn, enjoy and share.

THIS SHOW DANGEROUS TO BLOODCLAUT 

This was one of the very few things BET got right

This is one of the most insulting things that I have every seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dipped a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on and have the audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard so may jokes about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media)  but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture and have a white women play the role just proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people. 

Stop white people once and for all

I love my skin!

Do you all understand how important this is? Do you?

So many dark skinned girls will look at this—or have seen this and will feel, even if by a little, better about themselves.

Sometimes all a kid needs is validation from someone who is just a little bit like them in some way or form (you know that word “representation”?) so they can easily believe and SEE they, too, can get to that level of whatever in their life. In this case a girl can say, “hey she’s dark like me and loves her skin. I can too!”

It’s one thing for someone in their everyday life to shower them with love and assurance that they’re fine in the skin they’re in, but it’s another thing to actually bare witness to it in the media you consume. It’s not just your mom being nice to you. The world thinks you’re fine the way you are too.

This is so important. They need to see women like this everywhere. They need to see themselves saying they love what society says they should hate. They NEED, TO, SEE, THIS.

It’s revolutionary to say you love what you got and didn’t ask for despite the world telling you otherwise.

So bless Sesame Street, man.

The Whip My Hair bit from Willow and now the loving your skin color bit with Lupita makes them a SUPER important children’s program.

also an addendum to the hunger games slide, when they put out a casting call for the role of Katniss, they specifically asked for only caucasian actors to audition, which left out any possibility for any amazing PoC actors to have been discovered.

i hope this was informational and i didnt leave anything major out. if anything is wrong or needs to be updated, message me and i’l fix any fallacies!
