I'm writing the second book in a trilogy called Glitches. The majority of the books’ plot covers the life of Kat (Korean-16-pilot) She is a glitch, a human without any given abilities or powers due to being the result of a natural human birth. Her crew includes Rosabelle (black girl; clones herself), Wren (Indian-transgender-changes environment), Henry (white-assasin-loves Wren) and Eli (white-asexual). Two publishers love the story-want me to make characters whitecishet. If you'd read, share!

A while back, there was a post about whitewashing and that Gods of Egypt movie. Well, I just heard that after A LOT of petitioning from the public, they decided to cast a black man as Thoth. I was very happy about that, but I am still very sad that nothing was done about the rest of the cast, which is still very very white. Do you think they will cast any more black actors in it, or do you think they'll limit to one?


Santoine: One.

American Indian Rapper SupaMan was just named as an MTV Artist of the Week

The news: Christian Parrish Takes the Gun. Remember his name.

The Apsáalooke American Indian hails from the Crow Nation Reservation near Billings, Mont., and on March 21, the MTV Iggy blog named him Artist of the Week from among hundreds of competitors.

What makes him special? Well, he raps under the name “SupaMan,” he sings, he makes crazy drum loops, he’s a champion powwow fancy dancer and sometimes, if you’re lucky, he does all four at the same time.
