The Miseducation of Lulu George

About

Well im back, formerly oohmisslulu but now LadyLuluStyle

I thought it was time to grow up and make a blog that was actually worth reading.

It's main focus will be afropunk Style, art, woc, qwoc, music, culture, Indigenous issues and a bit of politics...

On occasions I will blog some controversial things and I take full ownership of any opinion pieces I post on here.

There's not much to know about me.

But here are some fun facts to get started.

o I live in Sydney
o I’m Indigenous Australian
o I love basketball and soccer
o My position is centre mid in soccer and point guard in basketball although I’m a better soccer player than baller
o I don’t have any pets although I wouldn’t mind one
o I have the best friends and family anyone could ask for
o I am an INFJ
o I love to travel, ive been to some interesting places around the world
o I don’t have a favourite colour but you can never go wrong with black ;)

If you have any questions just send them through :D

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.

They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.

To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.

And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.

So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.

Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:

Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds.[5] Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My BondRoger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.

That is what this gifset is about.

You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.
