..........even hate

Other people have approached this topic before, but I want to do it without immediately dipping into claims of racism or whitewashing. What I’m talking about is how women in the manga are pale, while men are dark.

I can think of multiple male/female instances where this happens.

  • The Strauss siblings. Mirajane and Lisanna are pale, while Elfman is dark-skinned.
  • The Tower of Heaven crew. Milliana is pale, while Sho is dark-skinned.
  • The Oracion Seis. Putting to one side the incredibly uncomfortable experience of watching Brain, a black man, turn white when he turns more evil (not pale, literally Caucasian white), he and Cobra are dark-skinned, while Angel is pale.
  • Scorpio and Aquarius. Pale female, dark-skinned male.
  • The Seven Kin of Purgatory. Ultear and Meredy are pale, while Azuma is dark-skinned.
  • Jiemma and Minerva. Minerva is pale, while Jiemma is dark-skinned.
  • Pisces in human form. The mother is pale, while the son is dark-skinned.
  • Arcadios and Yukino/Hisui. Hisui and Yukino are pale, while Arcadios is dark-skinned.
  • The Spriggan Twelve. Ajeel and August in his battle form are both dark-skinned, while the women are light-skinned.

Dark-skinned men without any nearby females include, of all people, Acnologia. Men that reach into the “probably still on the dark edge of light-skinned” include Jager, Ivan Dreyar, Dan Straight, Bluenote Stinger, and Jura Neekis. In some cases, it’s apparently supposed to be attributed to a tan (I believe that was Cobra or Elfman, don’t quote me), and in other cases it’s probably their home locale (Sho and Azuma).

Believe me, I’m not complaining about the dark men’s skin tones–every one of them on this list ranges from ‘pleasantly muscled’ to ‘damn fine as hell’. But I’m just wondering where the dark women are at. There are exactly three dark-skinned women in the whole series, and two of them only appear in the anime (Sue and Eclipse Aries). It especially doesn’t make sense for people who are blood relatives to have such different skin tones, especially as hair color seems to match in most cases (Pisces, the Strauss siblings). 

So…. ?????

This person really typed a mini essay on this post over here, Simone and like... Just say you want the negroes to have a white war criminal king and GO

i honestly could not read through it i refused to

like stop trying to elevate whites to royal/ruling status in wakanda, a black nation never once touched by white hands, just let it be, stop trying to put white rulers on the throne

askdlhsjdh i can’t believe they’re trying to parallel ~Comic Book Royalty~ / ~Series Long-Flagship Endgame Couple~/~Destined to be since Childhood~ ~WESTALLEN~ with freaking kara x mon-el.

Listen...

If you SO over expose Charles Michael Davis’ face that it’s BARELY recognizable, I will not RP with you. 1. it’s whitewashing (you’re trying to get away with it and I see you), and 2. CMD’S SKIN IS TO DIE FOR AND TO PUT FILTERS LIKE THAT ON IS JUST A CRIME AGAINST VISION

I’m soooo over the over-expose trend. It looks shitty on all faces and IDK why people use it.

PS: Also if you actually would want a proper discussion on why we like Klaroline, I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t come around telling us to die and calling us cunts lol So drop that bullshit and be honest about just being around trolling us ‘cause you’re bored. ‘Cause honestly you’re childishly entertaining with your dumb insults, pls stop recycling insults…you’re better than that. I BELIEVE IN YOU! YOU CAN DO IT.

PPS: And Phoebe? Don’t know her, never talked to her, don’t even think about her…but if you want to defend actresses I hope you’re defending Kat Graham as well, she seems to get a lot of crap too…and much worse.

Either way, you’re always welcome in my inbox lil puppet friend with the quivering pussy :3

i am not even sorry just take this

You know what, the ‘suddenly, there’s 5 more Winter Soldiers’ subplot

has gotten a lot of flack, and I don’t disagree that it could and should have been handled a lot better, but even as it is, I really really like what it says, or rather, confirms about Bucky.
