marrymejasonsegel asked: The racism showed towards Mike and Tina is ridiculous. and all the characters perpetuate it, too. Ugh glee writers. ALSO during the "born this way" number, when the rest of them had pretty real insecurities, what did Mercedes and Lauren have? "no weave" and "bad attitude." So body issues should be relegated to one episode where mercedes doesn't eat for a day and imagines everybody as giant items of food?!?
Seriously. And as for a “bad attitude,” I didn’t ever think Lauren was any more rude or self-centered than Rachel - I actually thought she was pretty awesome. ALSO I’m not an expert on weaves, but a friend of mine told me that Mercedes was definitely wearing one in that episode - curled, but still a weave. Like, even when her thing is supposed to be about embracing her natural hair, natural hair isn’t good enough for the camera?
