This pisses me off. This woman just walks up in there, studies people like they are her own fucking personal academic subjects, then gets all upset when they laugh at her, and acts like they owe her something?
No, fuck that.
They’re laughing because you’re fucking ridiculous. We are supposed to feel for her because they’re laughing at her because she can’t “fit in”? Well, white people have been laughing at PoCs because they can’t “fit in” to the confines of dominate society. But her tears are okay, we’re supposed to have empathy for her, because she’s the white anthropologist.
WHAT NOCKKNOCK SAID.
The amount of joy that rushes over me when white tears fall
HAHAHAHA LMAO. WELL THEN MISSY WHY DID YOU DRESS UP IN BLACK FACE.
It’s funny, but def does not upset me in anyway. As someone who is deeply interested in the Himba culture, I would love to include northern Namibia in my research as a student and document/learn more about their lifestyle (which by the way, is NECESSARY to do due to the constant threats/influence of Westernization and not to mention the knowledge that can be gained from them in regards to how long their traditions have remained uninfluenced by the outside world). She def wasn’t there for academic reasons, because she was going about it all wrong. It is a bullshit BBC show about dumping ladies like herself in environments like that to find ‘inner peace’(Like, wtf?). So her crying and whining as hilarious as it truly is, is to be expected from someone who is too busy playing the victim to think about anything besides her ‘tribal experience’. Her dressing up wasn’t for any reason besides getting ‘the full experience’. Once again, a rubbishy TV show where the cast has no interest to be involved and sincerely learn from another culture.
