Anonymous asked: Fucking hell, you're being way too sensitive about 'racism' in tvd they don't ignore the pain that bonnie goes through and they dont treat her like shit, surely her funeral was proof enough for that? (Before she came back)

bonlenas:

i can be as ‘sensitive’ as i want to be about the treatment of poc on the show because i can- and it’s not sensitivity, it’s seeing racism plain and simple on a show that is full of it. racism does not transcend television; if you think they treat bonnie, or any of the poc on the show well, you clearly haven’t been paying attention. get out of here with this bullshit- ‘they gave her a five minute send-off, that’s not enough for you?’ no, it isn’t. it never will be. bonnie has had to suffer and has been treated like a servant and subhuman for four, now five, seasons, but you think i should be content with cheerleading pompoms and a whistle on a tree stump. you think i should be happy that bonnie even got a funeral- trust me, i’m surprised too- and was treated for once with an ounce of humanity because tvd of all shows can’t be racist, right? mind you, this funeral was after months in-show of the core cast forgetting about her and by 5.09, she was back, experiencing the pain of every supernatural death and an episode later, no one gives a shit. bonnie surpasses so many of the other characters on level of importance and they dedicate time and effort into the storylines of other characters. this isn’t a strange coincidence- all of the other characters that they in which they invest time are white. bonnie’s lineage created the existence of vampires, yet you think they treat her decently when we have so much time for damon and enzo playing pool. repeat: we had a few minutes to see white guys play pool, but no one checks to see if the black woman was alright.

this show has a recurring history, mind you, of trying to erase racism for the sake of the storyline. the show is so white it gleams, that’s an obvious fact. technically speaking, bonnie is more integral to the entire premise of the show than caroline, being that she’s the only recurring witch, has access to a fairly unexplored setting in tvd!verse, has connections to the origins of vampires, but she still gets more time than bonnie ever does, and at this point, more than bonnie ever will. as far back as season 1, they called emily a ‘handmaiden’ to save their white guilt, even though we all know good and well that emily, in the south, in the heat of the civil war where she had been for quite some time, would have been a slave. whenever tvd absolutely has to kill someone off, especially in the case of using their death to prop up a white main, it’s always, always a poc and their death is never discussed. dianne, chris, mindy, aja and now, maggie- the list goes on. dianne was killed while damon spiraled out of control when katherine, in elena’s body, rejected him. mindy was decapitated so klaus could show how ‘tough’ he was- nothing is tough about murdering a woc that you treated like a slave. aja received the same treatment whenever she came back from the other side when her head was chopped off with a mortarboard. ESPECIALLY in the case of the recurring/main characters- anna. pearl. rudy. harper. grams. connor. bree. greta. gloria. connor, by elena, a white woman, in what tvd referenced as a section OF THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD. repeat: a black man had his neck snapped by a white woman in a section of the underground railroad. a black nurse was compelled and food for caroline.

this show tends to forget about poc as well as if we only exist to serve. why wasn’t bonnie invited to the mikaelson ball whereas everyone else was? they dressed it up as an ensemble affair, but where was bonnie? don’t tell me we didn’t have time to see her openly, verbally object to an invitation. as well, lucy was forgotten after she ‘paid’ katherine back, and she’s one of the only relatives bonnie has, yet we haven’t seen or heard from her since 2x07. isn’t it funny how this show always makes the poc owe favors to the white characters? just coincidence, right? ayanna was regarded as a powerful witch, yet we never saw her again. jamie was around for a few episodes and forgotten, but not before the white characters had a chance to beat him up and send him on his way. abby was killed by the salvatores and we never see her again after season four. basically, the message that tvd sends is that if you’re a poc and you have magic, you exist to serve the white mains, but if you don’t, you no longer have use to them and therefore, to the story as a whole. white vampire enzo with the grating voice walks in and he’s welcomed with open arms and moved up to a series regular before anyone gets a chance to breathe on the show.

i’m mad because this keeps happening. i have the right to be mad because this keeps happening. i will not dissolve by valid dissatisfaction because you can’t be bothered to understand why i’m upset as a woc. do not tone police me, ever.

when tvd does this to basically all of its poc characters, my attitude towards the show is not going to flip because bonnie got a funeral, when there’s so many that should have happened as well. bonnie got a funeral, and then we went back to the real world where no one cares about how she’s doing and everyone thinks she’s alright with feeling the pain of every supernatural death because no one has the guts to ask her.

i’ll take discussion of bonnie’s trauma and unfair treatment over a funeral any day.

this show is filled to the brim with racism and misogynoir, and if you took a second to understand and unpack your own before coming to me, this wouldn’t be such a hard concept

lol i don’t know why i’m writing this for you of all people, because you clearly don’t deserve my time and it’s obvious if you think that funeral as ‘enough’ for me, there’s no getting through to you and i’m not going to waste my time trying. when poc are murdered senselessly on and off the streets, you don’t kill us on screen, forget our names and move on. when a person walks into a woc’s askbox and tells her she’s being ‘too sensitive’ about the show’s treatment of poc, of the show brutally murdering and shafting their poc characters that look exactly like her, like her peers, like her family, you don’t kill us on screen. have a great day.

A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this.  Keep in mind this is the simple version.

The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism.  Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era.  Note also how thin he is.  This is because the Buddha fasted a lot.  He was born Siddhartha Gautama.  Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.

The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha.  This is a common misconception in the West.  That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero.  Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha.  Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.

This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.

This has been an informational post.  Have a nice day.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE READ THIS. READ IT. LEARN IT. PREACH IT.

I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.

Ohhh

After this episode, I really can’t be mad at Jeremy anymore.

He tries to talk about things and she shushes him. He wanted to talk about the situation with Liv, which would benefit Bonnie in the end, and she doesn’t want to hear it.

Don’t get me wrong I still don’t like Beremy, but that’s more…

I say this all the time in my posts about Beremy. Every time Jeremy is worried and wants to talk about what’s going on with her she shuts him down every time (the only reason he even knows what is going on with her being in pain is b/c she got caught). He’ll be complaining about whatever it is and she distracts him by trying to pretend everything is cool and he doesn’t wanna drive her away or upset her so it works every time. I mean when they was about to have sex he was trying to talk things out after Jesse passed through her and she distracted him by dismissing it and still coaxed him into have sex anyways. What she needs is someone who will see past that nonsense she be tryna pull and nip that shit in the bud b/c she has got away with it too many times and it is proving to be a problem in this relationship that will not be addressed or rectified.

I am reluctant to agree simply because, I would be worried with what kind of relationship we would be dealing with there. On one hand, hell yea it would be nice to see someone really push Bonnie to deal with reality and her place in it. On the other, what kind of relationship would that be? 

Everything about Beremy that seems like a lie, or a fantasy, is her fault. You can’t have this great reality when your foundation is made of sand. On paper, Bonnie and Jeremy, in theory, work really well. They both have a deep seated belief in right and wrong, they both get sidelined a lot, they both want to help and be involved, and they both have a dark side that they have a hard time dealing with. The set-up is great, its the execution that is horrible. Should Jeremy be more assertive? Maybe. But Bonnie shouldn’t consistently put him in a position where he has to be. 

So I feel as if even if Bonnie was with someone who did “make” her talk, who’s to say she would ever change. That she would ever grow enough to not need constant poking and prodding just to have a serious talk. Cause it’s not like she does this just with Jeremy, she does it with Elena and Caroline too. (The Bamon shipper in me wants to say something but Imma beat that bitch down, it is not her time right now)

I’ve just given up all hope on anything resembling a healthy relationship on this show. I think Forwood was the closest we got.

Don’t get me wrong I still don’t like Beremy, but that’s more due to Bonnie’s refusal to try to work with him. She treats him as something completely separate from the what’s going on when they are both entangled and it would clearly get them a lot farther if they collaborated. But she’s all, nope, no talky. 

I just, the writers have completely dropped the ball on this relationship and its sad.
