- chose to take on his slave grandmother’s last name, Dumas, like his father did before him.
- grew up too poor for formal education, so was largely self-taught, including becoming a prolific reader, multilingual, well-travelled, and a foodie, resulting in his writing both a combination encyclopedia/cookbook (which just— is fucking outrageous to me) AND the adaptation of The Nutcracker on which Tchaikovsky based his ballet
- he also wrote a LOOOOT of nonfiction and fiction about history, politics, and revolution, bc he was pro-monarchy, but a radical cuss, and that got him in a lot of hot water at home and abroad.
- even beyond that, he generally put up with a lot of racist bullshit in France, so he went and wrote a novel about colonialism and a BLATANTLY self-insert anti-slavery vigilante hero (which he then cribbed from to write the Count of Monte Cristo, the main character of which, Edmond Dantés, Dumas also based on himself).
- (…a novel which also features a LOAD of PoC beyond the Count, and at LEAST one queer character, btw, bc EVERY MOVIE ADAPTATION OF ANYTHING BY DUMAS IS A LIE; seriously, at LEAST one of the four Musketeers is Black, y'all.)
- famously, when some fuckshit or other wanted to come at Dumas with some anti-Black foolishness, Dumas replied, “My father was a mulatto, my grandfather was a Negro, and my great-grandfather a monkey. You see, Sir, my family starts where yours ends.”
- for the bicentennial of his birthday, Pres. Jacques Cirac was like, “…sorry about the hella racism,” and had Dumas’s ashes reinterred at the Panthéon of Paris, bc if you’re gonna keep the corpses of the cream of the crop all together, Dumas’s more widely read and translated than literally everybody else.
- and they are still finding stuff old dude wrote, seriously; like discovering“lost” works as recently as 2002, publishing stuff for the first time as recently as 2005.
- daddy general dumas was an immense fierce french warrior who was a 6 foot plus, stunningly gorgeous and charismatic Black gentleman
- he invaded egypt
- the native egyptians said “is this napoleon? this must be napoleon. we for one welcome our majestic new overlord”
- then napoleon showed up
- napoleon has all the presence of yesterday’s plain Tesco hummus
- the native egyptians were like “… no… no, we’ve thought very hard and we’ll have General Dumas actually”
- this did not make napoleon happy
- in fact it made him jealous
- napoleon felt so emasculated that he launched a campaign of revenge against General Dumas, including taking away his pension, that probably inspired a lot of Alexandre’s rather satisfying scenes in which fathers are nobly avenged and the money-grubbing villains are rubbed in the mud

whats the difference between bi people and unicorns
i can see unicorns on movies and tv
I told this to my mum and she was like “That’s not t… yes it is.”
Also, unicorns on tv are called unicorns, not ‘horses that don’t like labels’
horses that don’t like labels

Let’s not forget to acknowledge Alexandre Dumas this Black History Month
The writer of two of the most well known stories worldwide, The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo was a black man.
Let’s not forget that he was played on screen by a white man. And the fact that he was black is barely ever mentioned or the book he wrote inspired by his experiences.
Other things not to forget about Alexandre Dumas:
I am absolutely ashamed to admit I had NO idea Dumas was black.
when this post first went around (a year ago apparently) I was like BUT WHAT ABOUT DADDY DUMAS THOUGH because basically
I was never taught that he was Black either. WTF.
General Dumas (akaThomas Alexandre Davy de La Pailleterie) looked like this…
…and like this…
…while “Napoleon has all the presence of yesterday’s plain Tesco hummus“…
I suspect Alexandre Dumas would have laughed at that, because besides looking like someone who laughed a lot…
He was also born in present-day Haiti. Back then, it was the French colony of Saint-Domingue.

Nestle also doesn’t think that water is an essential human right.
melanin-101 Not in our house
Know what you support y’all.
Dammit. Fucked up my after valentines day plans.
Mars is cool tho right?
Numerous Palestinian groups have also asked people to boycott Nestle as part of the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) movement because of Nestle’s participation in the maintenance of the state of Israel
Unless you’re buying fair trade chocolate, it’s likely supporting slavery somewhere in the world. I did research on it a few years ago and chocolate companies’ supply chains are among the worst.
Damn. Really glad I don’t like chocolate. Boost for all that do.

What We Do in the Shadows (2014), dir. Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi
“That’s what you do with Depression, you mask the symptoms. The symptoms of Depression IS depression, it’s not a symptom of something else. It’s not like you go “oooh, I feel really sad” and then your arse falls off. The symptoms of Depression is depression. You take away the symptoms of Depression HALLOOOOO! you’re cured! But Tom [Cruise] was like “no, no, no Matt. Matt, these drugs Matt, these drugs they’re just a crutch, these drugs are just a crutch!” and I’m thinking “yes?”. THEY’RE A CRUTCH! You don’t walk up to a guy with one leg and say “hey pal, that crutch is just a crutch, THROW IT AWAY! Hop ya bastard! That crutch is masking the symptoms of your one leggedness”.” Craig Ferguson on Tom Cruise attacking Brooke Shields for using anti-depressants to fight Post-Partum Depression. (via themarriageofadeadblogsing) I have always thought Craig Ferguson was a very smart man. It appears I was right. (via deliciouskaek) “It’s not like you go “oooh, I feel really sad” and then your arse falls off.” (via cephalopuddle)
