This made me laugh… Smh
Lion King was in the heart of Africa right?!?
Maybe this person felt underrepresented in the media and decided he/she wanted the animal characters to look like him or herself…
But considering there is such a thing as ignoring cultural cues like skin color to enforce a unconscious racism so that they may still feel superior…
I slam my door as well.

i just followed this blog that keeps posting about ethnic groups of ethiopia and they haven’t included somalis once, like we aint the third largest in the country
and this person isn’t ethiopian so i’m confused as to why they’ve posted about this soooo many times
"I’m tired of people asking me to smooth my name out for them. They want me to bury it in the English so they can understand. I will not accommodate the word for mouth. I will not break my name so your lazy English can sleep its tongue on top. Fix your lips around them. No you can’t give me a stupid nickname so that you can replace this gift of five letters.” - Hiwot Adilow (linked above, performing the quoted piece)
“Give your daughters difficult names. Give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. My name makes you want to tell me the truth. My name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.” - Warsan Shire
pictured above: Entitled white woman Jenny Johnson in all her ethnocentricity. I grew up with women like her, they were my teachers, classmates. They resent any self-possessed “other” as “arrogant” for attempting to access the same common courtesy and respect they might allow those as vanilla as themselves. These women view it as their birthright to decide what is “weird” and “obscure” from within a niche limited to “white women named Jenny.” They blame their linguistic inadequacy on our parentage while resting on the privileges of their own. These women never amount to anything beyond an ignorant bully forever isolating themselves from incredible people with spectacular names.
