Yessss. Orange Caramel, you never disappoint in the wtf this is awesome dept.
Look. I know many of you are probably sick of talking about this, but I’ve grown increasingly angry about Kaling’s SXSW panel and her inability to just fucking get it and all of the think pieces declaring that she responded so well to the lack of diversity question and that it’s not her responsibility to “become the United Nations of shows” that at this moment I am so angry that even her face is irritating me right now. It’s petty as hell and I know it.
Kaling responded to questions about the lack of diversity on The Mindy Project defensively, as she has in the past:
I’m a f*cking Indian woman who has her own fucking network television show, okay?”
And she’s right and that’s great! I was so happy when I learned that a fucking India woman was going to get her own network television show and was even happier when I started watching and enjoying, becoming invested in the relationships and the personalities, really caring about what happens to these characters. I like The Mindy Project. I love that this is a show that’s on network television. But Mindy Kaling is also a fucking Indian woman with her own network television show who has absolutely no interest in helping out other women like herself and does not care if she’s the only one doing so and would maybe even prefer that it stay that way.
Mindy Kaling is not the victim of some anti-fun and happiness bullying campaign meant to bring down the hard-working Indian woman.
…and no one asks any of the shows I adore — and I won’t name them because they’re my friends — why no leads on their shows are women or of color, and I’m the one that gets lobbied about these things.”
This is simply not true. It’s quite possible that the reason she believes this is because she is not paying attention to these conversations. Like, at all. Her and Lena Dunham are BFF and she somehow managed to miss the entire year of diversity critiquing of Dunham that was 2012 - and a good chunk of 2013. She’s not involved in the conversations where this criticism is taking place because she doesn’t care unless the critique is thrown at her.
Good God, Mindy. I’m trying. I really am. There’s still hope for you to have an a-ha! moment. But it is an incredibly telling time when your anti-Dunham friends have kinder and more thoughtful things to say about her and her treatment of diversity on Girls than they have to say about you.
All your skinfolk ain’t your kinfolk. She’s dedicated to being The One Brown Friend (TM).

In her latest series “Make-up meets Chinese Art”, Malaysian experimental artist Red Hong Yi uses everyday makeup products to create paintings that reflect traditional Chinese attributes.
As the artist explains, “Chinese art requires a lot of precision and skill – one stroke can make a huge difference I felt that this is similar to how a woman carefully puts on her make-up.”
The project is set to celebrate the Chinese New Year, which lasts for 15 days, and will have a piece a day posted on Red Hong Yi’s Instagram account.
