"They're not like you and me which means they must be evil"

SOLs are over, which means my core classes are just fun time now. in World Geography, we finished watching Pocahontas today and i am thouroughly convinced that movie is just one big acid trip. talking trees, colorful woodland animals running through the sky, human-like animals, clouds that turn into specific shapes...come on. somebody was hittin' something. my friend and i sat there and just made joke after joke about this movie. like the music though...

on another note, there's this one song called "Savages" (well..i like all the songs being both a disney cartoon freak and a musical freak) that always gives me goosbumps. today, i was sitting there watching it, and there was these two lines i'd never heard before and it really struck a c(h)ord with me.

"They're not like you and me
Which means they must be evil"

"They're different from us
Which means they can't be trusted"

prejudice goes a long way for a lot of different people.

that...and the white people have really, *really* FUCKED up for a LONG time.

I always use to notice it in that song but for some reason since I was brough up in a racist, homophobic environment I just thought it was right that is until I was 7 and thought about the words.
~Thank you for the memories, a keepsake in my heart.

I LOVE that movie! Yeah. I

I LOVE that movie!

Yeah. I'm a disney freak. It's terribly unrealistic (Pocahontis was about 11 when she met John Smith. There was nothing sexual between them), but I like it anyway. That song gives me chills, too.

Be yourself. Because, if you're busy being someone else, who's gonna be you?
