Captain America dresses up as Sam Wilson for Halloween.

STOP THOUGH
They go in couples costume to a party: Sam is dressed as Captain America and Steve is dressed as the Falcon.

And people are like oh haha cute, you guys came as Cap and Falcon?

And Steve’s like (big doe eyes) I dressed up as the greatest superhero on earth, and my PERSONAL hero: Sam Wilson.

Person: Aw, and Sam, you dressed as Steve?

Sam: Nope, I’m also dressed as me. I’m Captain America.  I’m Falcon.  Everything is mine. (he and Steve high five)

Discrimination isn’t a thunderbolt, it isn’t an abrupt slap in the face. It’s the slow drumbeat of being underappreciated, feeling uncomfortable and encountering roadblocks along the path to success.

Many of us have preconceived notions about people’s accents. We find Western European accents—French, British, Castilian Spanish, Italian—relatively appealing, while Asian and Mexican accents are experienced as unintelligible or offensive….if an employee speaks French well and English only moderately well, we aren’t bothered. however, if Filipinos, for example, speak Tagalog to one another at work, the assumptions are that they are purposefully excluding English-speakers, that they are not trying to learn English, and that they don’t care. A mean-spirited quality is attributed to the behavior.

Frances E. Kendall, Understanding White Privilege (via katemess)

I love speaking Chinese and triggering that insecurity in monolingual English speakers. If they ask what I’m talking about, I just smile and say “nothing” in a way to make it even worse. So I guess the mean-spirited quality is somewhat true in my case.

For me, the most ironic token of [the first human moon landing] is the plaque signed by President Richard M. Nixon that Apollo 11 took to the moon. It reads, ‘We came in peace for all Mankind.’ As the United States was dropping seven and a half megatons of conventional explosives on small nations in Southeast Asia, we congratulated ourselves on our humanity. We would harm no one on a lifeless rock.
