“I’m biracial. While I understand and sympathize with concerns about making a fully Japanese character half-white, when I hear people say that making Hiro biracial is “whitewashing” and that he should have stayed “fully asian” I feel like that means I’m not a “real” PoC. My PoC heritage is a huge part of who I am, but whenever I hear stuff like this I think that I don’t have a right to call myself a member of my PoC race because I’m half-white.”

white people are so quick to yell about ‘cultural appropriation’ but as soon as native americans say ‘your sports team name is a slur and also running around in a war bonnet and war paint furthers the oppression of native american culture’ they’re all like ‘it s’t not wrong we’re honoring your culture’
