Two Links, One Post: Brown Women in Film

I have never hidden the fact that I am a huge fan of brown women. Too long have entrenched gender stereotypes held South Asian women down, and prevented them from using their talent to fulfill their potential.

Encyclopedia Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-ica

One of the first fads that I really bought in to as a kid was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I had the games, the toys, the halloween costumes, and dutifully tuned in every Saturday morning to catch up with their latest escapades.

Above is the video for Killer Mike’s lead single from excellent sixth studio album R.A.P. Music.

It plays like a dark, short film more than a music video, with a couple of sick musical interludes.
