people actually LIVE in these countries. these are their HOMES, these are their LIVES
if you look at a photoset with a bunch of brown or black people minding their own business in their homelands and your first thought is “this would be a cool place for me to go,” as if the only way to get there is to travel, because you’re obviously talking to a white audience and the people of colour who LIVE there obvs aren’t real people who are in your audience, amiright????? then you have some fucking issues to work through and it’s not my damn job to hold your hand and gently guide your head out of your white-centric colonialist ass
i’m so sorry for reblogging this but this is too hilarious

Favourite Director/Actor Collaborations: Kurosawa/Mifune
Between 1948 and 1965, Akira Kurosawa directed 17 films. Of those 17, Toshiro Mifune starred in all but one. While the two had a falling out after the filming of their last collaboration, Red Beard, their mutual respect for one another remained intact until the end.
Kurosawa has this quality, this ability to bring things out of you that you never knew were there. It is enormously difficult work, but each picture with him is a revelation. When you see his films, you find them full realizations of ideas, of emotions, of a philosophy which surprises with its strength, even shocks with its power. You had not expected to be so moved, to find within your own self this depth of understanding.
— Toshiro Mifune
I am a person who is rarely impressed by actors, but in the case of Mifune, I was completely overwhelmed.

Sorry but... what? How is it racist to tag your pictures with "travel"? If that's what it is?
