Candy, Charlie, and Dad: karik evayna Violet Beauregarde should've won Wonka's chocolate factory Have I watched the movie in the last decade or more? No. Do I have iron clad evidence to support my argument? Yes. 1. She's the most knowledgeable about candy She's committed to it, and knows her stuff. When Wonka holds up a little yellow piece across the room, she recognizes it immediately. She was able to switch to candy bars for the sake of the contest, so we know she has personal discipline and is goal oriented. Also, two major projects play directly into her strong suits: the 3-course- meal gum that Wonka failed to make safe (gum) and the neverending gobstopper (longevity) 2. She's the most fit to run a business. Violet is competitive, determined, hard working, and willing to take risks. Her father is a small town car salesman and politician, so she could easily pick up knowledge and support from him. (Veruca's dad is also a business man, and in a compatible market (nuts), but it's made very clear that Veruca has no respect or knowledge of business practices or hard work.) 3. Shes the most sympathetic to the Oompa Loompas. She critiques Veruca when Veruca demands to buy one. More importantly, Wonka has been testing the 3-course-meal gum that always goes wrong' on Oompa Loompas while he presumably just watches. Violet is ready to put herself on the front line, instead of treating the Oompa Loompas as disposable, and would therefore be a better boss. 4. Her personality flaw' is the most fitting for the company. In the moralizing Oompa Loompa song, they just say gum is pretty cool, but it's not socially acceptable to chew it all day. The thing is, we already know that she can stop if she wants, because she already did that to win the golden ticket. And yeah, she is defensive about the perceived impoliteness of her hobby (like when her mother tries to shame her about her habit during a televised interview) but the obsession with candy and neglect of social norms is EXACTLY what Wonka is all about This is on brand. 5. Her misstep in the factory is reasonable. Wonka shows everyone a candy he's very proud of. Violet is like "oh sick, that's gum, my special interest." Wonka is then pulls a "WRONG! It's amazing guml So in the very moments before she takes the gum Wonka has mislead her just to belittle her. So when he's like I wouldn't do that" why should she give a shit what he has to say? She's not like Charlie over here who's al Sure Gramps, let's stay behind while the tour leaves and secretly drink this thing that has been explicitly stated to fill you with gas and is too powerful for safe consumption, oh and also I just saw what happened to Violet so I actually KNOW what this stuff can be capable of" Also, Violet is not selfish about her experience, she tells everyone what she's tasting and feeling, and everyone is eager to hear it. Taking a personal risk to share knowledge with everyone. Violet is Prometheus: fact. So Augustus contaminates the chocolate river. Charlie sneaks around and contaminates the vent walls. Veruca destroys and disrupts the workspace. Mike knows exactly what will happen to him and transports/shrinks himself deliberately. Violet had no idea what the gum could potentially do to her, and caused no harm to anyone or anything but herself Lastly: Can you imagine Charlie filling Wonka's shoes? That passive, naive boy? Violet is already basically Wonka. She's passionate sarcastic, candy-obsessed, free thinking, and a total firecracker. She's even better than Wonka, because she doesn't endanger others. Violet should've been picked to inherit the chocolate factory. Source: evayna #charlie and the chocolate factory 123,693 notes Blueberry Boss

 she takes the gum Wonka has mislead her just
 to belittle her. So when he's like I wouldn't do
 that" why should she give a shit what he has to
 say? She's not like Charlie over here who's al
 Sure Gramps, let's stay behind while the tour
 leaves and secretly drink this thing that has been
 explicitly stated to fill you with gas and is too
 powerful for safe consumption, oh and also I
 just saw what happened to Violet so I actually
 KNOW what this stuff can be capable of" Also,
 Violet is not selfish about her experience, she
 tells everyone what she's tasting and feeling, and
 everyone is eager to hear it. Taking a personal
 risk to share knowledge with everyone. Violet
 is Prometheus: fact.
 So Augustus contaminates the chocolate
 river. Charlie sneaks around and contaminates
 the vent walls. Veruca destroys and disrupts
 the workspace. Mike knows exactly what will
 happen to him and transports/shrinks himself
 deliberately. Violet had no idea what the gum
 could potentially do to her, and caused no harm
 to anyone or anything but herself
 Lastly: Can you imagine Charlie filling Wonka's
 shoes? That passive, naive boy? Violet is
 already basically Wonka. She's passionate
 sarcastic, candy-obsessed, free thinking, and a
 total firecracker. She's even better than Wonka,
 because she doesn't endanger others.
 Violet should've been picked to inherit the
 chocolate factory.

Why did you make liberty black and justice Muslim ? So here’s a distilled explanation of Why Liberty Is Black and Why Justice Is Muslim for those who are confused by the rampant inaccuracies. I’ll spell it out. Artistic license I live in the US and the political landscape is a dumpster fire. This is a protest piece. Liberty and Justice are concepts based loosely on ancient gods from a multiracial civilization. They are also deeply American concepts, and one of the great American dreams is that we are a melting pot of equality* for all races and religions. *Terms and conditions may apply.

Also there’s a black Lady Liberty coin coming soon (and this coin was a major design element for Lady Liberty here). But honestly ‘accuracy’ is beside the point. For all of the questions I’ve gotten on this piece, 90% relate to the race/religion of Liberty and Justice. People are bothered by the perceived inaccuracies there and totally skip over the gay part.

“[Police] use terms like ‘apprehend’ and ‘restrain,’ to try to portray it as a very antiseptic event,” Cook says. “But you look at the video and the dog is chewing away on his leg and mutilating him.”
Cook says the proliferation of smart phones and body cameras is capturing a reality that used to be lost on juries. “If it’s a good video,” he says, “it makes a case much easier to prevail on.”
The new generation of videos is capturing scenes of K9 arrests that are bloodier and more violent than imagined by the public. An NPR examination of police videos shows some officers using biting dogs against people who show minimal threat to officers, and a degree of violence that would be unacceptable if inflicted directly by the officers.
…
In fact, in many videos, the release of a dog appears to escalate the violence of an arrest.
“You just look at the dog as the source of pain and you do everything you can to address that pain,” says Seth Stoughton. He’s a former police officer, now an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of South Carolina who studies police use of force. “Those shouted commands — you’ll deal with that later, when the pain stops.”
And yet suspects who kick and try to shake the dog off are often accused of resisting arrest.

NPR (November 20, 2017)
i don’t care what this dog in particular is being trained to do. furthering the idea that police dogs are somehow cute or good directly contributes to injustice and the perceived acceptability of police violence

My aunt rescues and rehabilitates german shepherds, and the vast majority are failed police dogs. The rehab process for these dogs is intense. They are trained to be hyper vigilant and to resort to violence. They are often is worse condition than formerly abused animals. 
I spent a summer training one of these balls of anxiety. She was too fast and strong for my aunt to train her, so I did it. The biggest hurdle was getting her out of the mindset that biting someone gets her a treat. I had to let her bite my arm, forcible break the hold, and kennel her all without giving her a response because these dogs are trained to equate someone screaming at them as Go Time. 
By letting her attack me and showing her that I was stronger than her and then not allowing her to play with the other dogs was what finally got her to stop attacking whenever she heard a loud noise or was surprised or just felt like it. 
She still had to be homed in a gun-free, pet-free, child-free home because of the sheer anxiety she was bred for. These dogs are not cute, they are horribly mistreated.

Facebook, Friday, and Relationships: Researchers Find Decline In Facebook Use Could Be Directly Linked To Desire To Be Happy Fully Functioning Person <p><a href="http://theonion.tumblr.com/post/170431494634/berkeley-caresearchers-at-university-of" class="tumblr_blog">theonion</a>:</p><blockquote><p>BERKELEY, CA—Researchers at University of California-Berkeley discovered Friday that a reduction in Facebook use could be directly linked to one’s desire to be a happy and fully functioning person. “Our data indicate that there may, in fact, be a relationship between yearning to be a self-realized human who enjoys being with other people in the real world and not spending every waking minute on artificial, once-removed social-interaction venues such as Facebook,” said lead scientist Dr. Charles Jennings, explaining that those who logged even marginally less time on the site displayed greater interest in performing basic physical activities, at least occasionally left their homes, and developed more meaningful relationships with others. “Furthermore, the vast majority of subjects did not miss ignoring others to bury their faces in their phones, endlessly obsessing over their public image, or mindlessly scrolling through a timeline in an attempt to fill a perceived void in their lives. Instead, most generally preferred things like experiencing the outside world, sleeping regularly, and allowing themselves the full range of human emotion.” Dr. Jennings added that the long-term psychological effects of decreased Facebook use are unclear, as the study had largely been conducted through polls and questionnaires on the UCB Psychology Department’s Facebook page.<br/></p></blockquote>

You cannot just assume somebody&rsquo;s heritage based on how their skin color appears to you. There are people who are black, Latino, Middle Eastern, Asian, etc. and &ldquo;look white&rdquo;. My aunt is so light-skinned when I was a kid I thought she was white, but no she&rsquo;s definitely black. Her ancestors were black slaves. She is a bona fide African-American in every sense of the word. You do not get to tell someone with their ethnic heritage is simply by looking at them, and if you don&rsquo;t know shit about a complete strangers I think identity, then you shouldn&rsquo;t say shit about it. I am sick and tired of seeing these SJW cretins jumping down people&rsquo;s throats for the &ldquo;cultural appropriation&rdquo; of a culture tumblr assumes doesn&rsquo;t belong to them because of course they couldn&rsquo;t possibly part of that culture due to their skin tone. You want to be anti-racist so bad but you are forever making complete assumptions based on nothing but your uninformed opinion about a strangers skin tone. </p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-width="547" data-orig-height="308" data-tumblr-attribution="rivka-kopelman:mm6CJMZnqDLiuel3f01yfQ:ZoE9Zm1ssuTst" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/a0f4bbb9b5694792fcf4cf6073238a54/tumblr_nt7u51vGuH1tls8aro1_1280.gif"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/a0f4bbb9b5694792fcf4cf6073238a54/tumblr_inline_ocsr0hSHG91rw09tq_540.gif" data-orig-width="547" data-orig-height="308" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/a0f4bbb9b5694792fcf4cf6073238a54/tumblr_nt7u51vGuH1tls8aro1_1280.gif"/></figure>

<p>the short, angry answer is that Jews aren’t white and white people don’t have lighter features patented. maybe you guys haven’t been clued in, but white as a concept does not mean light skin.</p>
<p>have any of you ever seen Laila Mourad? she was a Mizrahi (Iraqi) Jew who was probably even lighter than i am.</p>
<div>
<img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/e/ea/Laila_mourad.jpg/220px-Laila_mourad.jpg" alt=""/><p>i guess Laila is white too, huh?</p>
<p>do you know where my coloring comes from? if you say Europe or white people, then you’re wrong. my coloring comes from Morocco—specifically my Amazigh ancestry. Amazigh is usually called ‘Berber’ in English (i don’t like that word in the least) and it’s basically indigenous people of North Africa. here are some pictures of Imazighen: </p>
<img src="http://amazigh-boy.webs.com/photos/Azul/1530218318%5B1%5D.jpg" alt=""/><img src="http://www.democratic-republicans.us/images/Berber-girl.jpg" alt=""/><img src="http://gallery.photo.net/photo/7133845-lg.jpg" alt=""/><p>we are diverse in facial features and coloring—but at the end of the day, we aren’t white. we aren’t even TREATED white by any of you—so why should we force ourselves to identify as white?</p>
<p>you don’t own my light skin. you don’t own my blue eyes. you don’t own my brown hair. you sure as hell don’t want to own my clearly Jewish nose or my Jewish facial structure—so what makes you think you can own the coloring passed down to me via the Imazighen who’ve lived in Africa forever? </p>
<p>you don’t get to colonize our identities and features too.</p>
<p>*all Jews find their ultimate roots in the Middle East, ‘even’ Ashkenazi Jews. </p>
<p>also this is a really poorly written post, i’m just annoyed at goyim ugh</p>
</div>
</blockquote>
<p>“all ethnic jewish find their roots in the middle east, even ashkenazi jews”</p>
<p>and we are <i>all jews</i>, no matter what colour we are, no matter whether that colour is light or dark</p>
</blockquote>
<p>The Jewish people are like skittles. Feel the rainbow. Taste the rainbow. </p>
</blockquote>
<p>As a Syrian-Iranian Jew (with a white catholic mother) I just…thank you. I’m actually crying right now because thank you because tumblr has shown me so so so much and given me such a gift of saying ‘your identity is valid and you are real and…just thank you’ *weeps*</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Question : how does this negate any privilege you may have by being percieved as white?</p>
<p>I dont understand these posts truly i dont. Because it seems like ur trying to distance urself from whiteness which really isnt based on heritage more so how not black you are</p>
<p>Again privilege is how society views you. Its not a controllable  immutable thing. And to try and distance uraelf from said privilege is really insulting to me</p>
</blockquote>
<p>This is a big ass Not Me dance.</p>
<p>If you present as white, phenotypically and you get white privilege because of it, you white.</p>
<p>Cut the bullshit.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Exactly! In fact OP’s WHITE slip is showing because she played that tired I’m part this and ¾ that and half this and that derail that Euro descended white people love to use. Regardless of her ancestral heritage the white-passing privilege that she enjoys TODAY still stands and she has to own that if really she wants to keep it real. Otherwise, this is just more narcissistic myopic mewling from someone who is mad that her disingenuousness isn’t being treated as a fact for her convenience. FOH! Foreign Becky!</p>
</blockquote>

<ul><li><i>“whiteness… really isnt based on heritage more so how not black you are”</i></li></ul><p>As a black Jew, I’d like to take this moment to say:<b> what the fuck?!?!? </b> <br/></p><p>How “not black you are”?????</p><p>I didn’t realize white and black were the only two options now?  I guess Asians, indigenous peoples, MENA people, Latinx people, etc all just don’t exist?????</p><p><b>You could have just said: <i>“I think that the world consists of only the continental US.”</i>  It would have gotten the same point across.</b></p><p>OP isn’t even talking about privilege you fucking walnut.  Yes, white passing people benefit from conditional privilege due to how they are perceived at first glance.<b>  </b>That doesn’t make them White.  It doesn’t make them suffer less from the effects of White supremacy movements and ideas. <br/></p><p><b>Furthermore, as a ethno-religious group, Jews are not seen as white by in large.  Despite individual skin tone.<br/></b></p><p>We make up 60% of religious hate crime victims in the us despite being 1% of the population.  In France, Jews are the victims of <b>50% of ALL hate crimes </b>despite, again, being only 1% of the population.</p><ul><li><i>“OP’s WHITE slip is showing because she played that tired I’m part this and ¾ that and half this“</i></li></ul><p>Fucking where? All OP said is that she is part indigenous Moroccan (Amazigh). Guess what?  <b>Mixed people exist outside of the “black person and white person made a baby” dichotomy from hell.  </b>Or are you just too lazy to google what “Maghreb” and “Mashriq” are?</p><ul><li><i>“this is just more narcissistic myopic mewling from someone 
who is mad that her disingenuousness isn’t being treated as a fact for 
her convenience.”</i></li></ul><p>Says the race-policing fuckwad.<br/></p><p>As OP said, <b>Europeans don’t own light features. <br/></b></p><p><b>This is an Amazigh child:<br/></b></p><figure data-orig-width="599" data-orig-height="399" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="599" data-orig-height="399" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/830e0bb292fe7dea5aa495d48cb6ce49/tumblr_inline_ocsl3nhLc91sk7lfk_540.jpg"/></figure><p>This is a Yazidi woman:</p><figure data-orig-width="980" data-orig-height="552" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="980" data-orig-height="552" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/6fde27484e8476ff22fc24dab74122e6/tumblr_inline_ocsl4hSFnw1sk7lfk_540.jpg"/></figure><p>This is a Syrian-Kurdish girl:<br/></p><figure data-orig-width="964" data-orig-height="681" class="tmblr-full"><img data-orig-width="964" data-orig-height="681" src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/edc3530d20c622b36ea2c93abc9eed0c/tumblr_inline_ocsl75ppwu1sk7lfk_540.jpg"/></figure><p>NONE are European.<br/></p><p>Having a “light” skin tone does not negate ethnicity and certainly doesn’t protect you from antisemitism or other ethnic-based racist violence. </p><h2><b>STOP POLICING OTHER PEOPLE’S (ESPECIALLY JEWS) ETHNIC IDENTITIES HOLY FUCKING SHIT!</b></h2></blockquote>

<p>But seriously Tumblr really needs to stop this. You cannot just assume somebody&rsquo;s heritage based on how their skin color appears to you. There are people who are black, Latino, Middle Eastern, Asian, etc. and &ldquo;look white&rdquo;. My aunt is so light-skinned when I was a kid I thought she was white, but no she&rsquo;s definitely black. Her ancestors were black slaves. She is a bona fide African-American in every sense of the word. You do not get to tell someone with their ethnic heritage is simply by looking at them, and if you don&rsquo;t know shit about a complete strangers I think identity, then you shouldn&rsquo;t say shit about it. I am sick and tired of seeing these SJW cretins jumping down people&rsquo;s throats for the &ldquo;cultural appropriation&rdquo; of a culture tumblr assumes doesn&rsquo;t belong to them because of course they couldn&rsquo;t possibly part of that culture due to their skin tone. You want to be anti-racist so bad but you are forever making complete assumptions based on nothing but your uninformed opinion about a strangers skin tone.
