May 8, 2014: Lifetime announced that produced begins this month in Morocco for the two-day miniseries based on the best-selling novel The Red Tent by Anita Diamant. It premieres later this year on the network.
- Rebecca Ferguson (Dinah)
- Minnie Driver (Leah, mother of Dinah)
- Morena Baccarin (Rachel, mother of Dinah)
- Iain Glen (Jacob, husband to Leah, Rachel, [Zilpah and Bilhah])
- Will Tudor (Joseph, brother of Dinah)
- Debra Winger (Rebecca, Jacob’s mother)
The Red Tent is the sweeping tale of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob, who was only referred to in small glimpses in the Old Testament. The miniseries begins with Dinah’s happy childhood spent inside the red tent where only the women of her tribe are allowed to gather and share the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. Told through Dinah’s eyes, the film recounts the story of her mothers Leah, Rachel, Zilpah and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob, and his courtship of them. The saga continues as Dinah matures and experiences an intense love that subsequently leads to a devastating loss, changing the fate of her and her family’s lives forever.
Set in the Middle East. White cast. I am not surprised. Thanks Lifetime. Thanks for taking my favorite book and white washing it.

So Sadie and I were walking down the street, when an old man calls out: “I’ll take the little girl”
It was creepy. I don’t know what his intentions are, but it was creepy, and it stank of street harassment. I didn’t know what to do. But she waved at him, and said “Bye”. I wished she hadn’t acknowledged him. I know he was trying to say how adorable she was, but, did he have to say it like that?
She’s only three and a half. She’s too young to have people hollering at her, even if it is old men in wheelchairs.
If her father had been there, he would have called him out, but I just, froze.
My daughter is too young to be catcalled.
And don’t fucking tell me that wasn’t cat calling.

from various reddit threads
at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke. nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.
white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response. tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.
