I wonder if white people sometimes get pissed that Jesus turned out to be a black woman.
When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.

Anonymous asked: I think it's a bit ignorant to criticize someone's use of vocabulary for sounding "too smart". It is difficult to verbalize a specific argument without using specific terminology, especially when character limits are involved. It is okay if someone knows more than you about something. Knocking someone down for being eloquent is a bit gradeschool, and shows an unattractive level of intellectual insecurity.
I love smart people. I love big words. I even use them from time to time. But if I’m talking to a group of people who know nothing about photography, I’m not going to assume they know what the inverse square law is. I’m not going to casually mention a Bayer filter without an explanation.
I did not find that person to be eloquent and I don’t think they chose their words for specificity’s sake. Using niche terms that are not common in most people’s vocabulary is classic tactic to help one sound intellectually superior. The idea being, if people don’t understand, they will assume you are correct.
I want to live in an intellectual world, but I wish it to be free of arrogance. When I listen to people like Bill Nye or Neil deGrasse Tyson, I feel like they are enthusiastic about sharing all they know with anyone who will listen. When I read that person’s message I felt like they were just trying to say, “I know more than you, so I am right.”
