World History in a nutshell. 

This is literally the best fucking metaphor for World History and you cannot tell me otherwise.

Except no, this is totally WRONG.

The Air Nomads are based on Tibetian monks, as well as other cultures with concepts of Buddhism. This is reflected in the practice of shaving their heads, meditation, and vegetarianism. Aang’s clothes are very similar to that of the Shaolin monks. Even the location and architecture of the air temples resembles those found in Tibet.

The Fire Nation is inspired by the government and politics of Imperialist and Maoist China (as well as Imperial Japan). There was a little thing called Free Tibet a few years back which was quite in vogue with you psuedo-social-justice types. Do you remember what that was about? In 1951, China invaded Tibet and claimed sovereignty over them. As with most wars, depending on whose views you share, stories can differ. The Chinese (*cough*fire nation*cough*) claim to have reduced taxes, unemployment and built schools. However they achieved this through extortion, torture, murder, and oppression of the Tibetan culture. Thus, Avatar’s Hundred Year War.

The Water tribes are based on Inuit people. This one is really obvious. They share the same visual coding of colour, use furs in the clothing, live in polar regions in igloos and yurts, and rely on fishing as their primary food source.

The Earth Kingdom is a mixing pot of various Asiatic cultures including China, India, Korea, Thailand and Japan. Each city/town will reflect some of these more strongly than the others. 

If you agree with the labelling in the above gifset, you’ve either completely missed the point of Avatar, or just don’t give a fuck about actual World History or anything outside of what’s popular with tumblr “social justice”. You all harp on about needing more representation in the media but as soon as you’re given something as beautiful as Avatar, with a huge diversity of non-Eurocentric cultures, you completely misconstrue it. What you’ve done is erased the importance of all these individual (and indigenous) cultures, and replaced it with your own (anti-white) political agenda.

(And honestly, who uses umbrella labels like “asians” and “white people”. That’s ignorant and racist as fuck)

Bless Tumblr user barrelsofdwarrows for the above and for calling people out on their narrow-minded bullshit.

That was excellent.

I actually got so mad when I saw the gifset, its quite obvious the air nomads are based off of Shaolin monks and water tribe after Inuit.

The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black.

Or, you know, photoshop

melanism certainly exists! however, among big cats, it’s only sighted with jaguars and leopards (who, in the wild, mostly happen to live in denser areas than their colored counterparts!). and as for this lion…

abloo

oobla

aeiou
i wonder if people would believe me if i posted a pink jaguar here, calling the gene ”pingalanism” or whatever lol. people are so gullible here.

Today is the day that Marty McFly goes to the future!

You mean 10/21/15 right? Did you even see the second movie? Of course this image pops up from time to time with erroneous dates inserted to imply that Zemeckis and Gale somehow hit the freaky bullseye or to insinuate the “too spooky” trope. But it gets annoying after a while…  I mean some things were accurately predicted in the movie: Skype style video chats, flat screens,  overwhelming Asian influences on society, watching 6 channels at once, kinect style gaming, and head mounted displays. tl:dr = Get your movie shit right
