Who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns: the cause or the company? In showing the real story of breast cancer and the lives of those who fight it, this film reveals the co-opting of what marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause.”
If you’re a woman, take the time to watch the documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc.
Watch it on
Youtube (for now…) (x)
Glad to see this on Tumblr. I don’t Pink. I don’t Run for a Cure. Write a check to your favorite women’s health charity.
I want a cure, I want research and support services and free diagnosis and treatment, I want lives saved. I do not give a flying fuck about pink ribbons, when less than 25% of Komen’s budget goes into research, but they do litigiously pursue competing organizations for trademark infringement.
Find an org that is all about research or care or free services or support and write a check, click a donate button, give to someone who calls you but stop supporting an org that doesn’t do the actual work.
seriously, everyone should see this.
American newspapers just seizing the opportunity to have a little fun with slavery. Totally accidental and/or harmless.
In other news: microaggressions are common verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile or negative slights to marginalized groups. (via Donovon X Ramsey)
What do you think? Catchy headlines or microaggressions?
The last two I could write off as just lazy editing
The first two? Motherfuckers playing games
All of them are intended to demean. You could shorten the film title to “12 Years” just as easily and actually more descriptively, but throwing the word “Slave” around with “master” and pictures of Lupita Nyong’o is a way of re-emphasizing how US society views Black people.
