"Your first kiss isn’t as important as your last. The math test really didn’t matter. The pie really did. The stuff you’re good at and the stuff you’re bad at are just different parts of the same thing. Same goes for the people you love and the people you don’t—and the people who love you and the people who don’t. The only thing that mattered was that you cared about a few people. Life is really, really short."
"The fucking thought of you with somebody else, I don’t like that."
"One day you’re going to see her holding hands with someone who took your chance. She won’t even notice you because she’s too busy laughing with the stupid jokes he makes. And it will burn your heart seeing that beautiful smile on her face and realizing that you’re not the reason anymore. And then it will finally hit you: it was her, it was always her."
What is love?
Apparently only for white people.
Dude, you do realize this ad is Italian right? Those people are Italian, because it’s an Italian ad. Italian people are typically white. This ad is suppose to be about acceptance in THEIR country, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country?
I’m gettin’ real tired of tumblr’s attitude. I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but here we go.
Not everywhere is as mixed as North America. You go to places like Japan and it would be really weird to see a white person in their ad, it’s no different for places like Italy and Germany where people are mostly white. In North American we seem to have a decently even mix in a lot of areas so it’s a little off-putting when there’s only a certain race -generally all white people- depicted, where it’s completely normal and would appear really strange otherwise for other countries. Like you wouldn’t go to China and demand they show white people in their ads there, so why would you do the same for a country that has very few PoC compared to it’s population?
As the person above me said, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country in their ads?
Seriously, I am Italian, and FUCK YOU. Our country has huge problems with homophobia, there isn’t even one single law to protect homosexuals. Most European countries have legalized marriage and adoption (or at least talked about it), but not Italy. The Catholic community does everything they can to block the law against homophobia. Last month, a 14 years-old killed himself because he was gay. You have no idea how much that kind of thing matters in Italy, all you can fucking do is whine about Tumblr about the fact that they are all white. Yes, in Italy the majority of the population is indeed white. Not the rest of the world is like fucking North America. So before you come whining about it on Tumblr, get your facts right.
I love it when reality slaps the fuck out of Tumblr.

Reality bitch-slapping whiny fuckers on tumblr brings me such joy. And props to my countryman up there layin down the facts.
Ok, I AM ITALIAN and I LIVE IN ITALY, and let me tell you something, Italians HATE anything that isn’t traditional and Catholic. Most Italian nationals are white, but since the immigration of Albania (also white) Romanian (also white) North Africans (Islamic and black) and other eastern Europeans, Chinese, and Indians, this is a little upsetting. This is one of the most prejudiced countries in Europe. And I have seen people spit on, kicked out of places, beaten, arrested, and yelled at just for being different. We are a proud people, and its unfortunately. But these posters are the start of a revolution in Italy, the young generation is starting to uprise and it could be beautiful, or it could be terrible. “Come fai a non vederlo?” means “How can you not see it?” and “Condividilo” means “share it”. So they are trying to combat this horrible tradition of Catholic power and riotousness, and try to create a more equal society. You think its bad in the states? Be a lesbian and move to Italy. Tell me how you feel then.
