(thanks to everyone for pointing out things I didn’t know to add.)

quick korean tips for beginners: pronouns
  • they are usually omitted 
  • to refer to yourself: use 나 in a casual setting if you are close with the listener or older than them; use 저 if they are strangers and/or older
  • dont use 너 as the second person if you are not, like, really close with them
  • dont use 당신 either its really awkward and not common 
  • actually dont pay too much attention to 2nd person pronouns and instead refer to people by their titles (especially if they are older) or full names+씨
  • 우리 is also used as the possessive without the particle. (우리 집 = our home)
  • 나 + 의 (possessive particle) = 내 my
  • 너 + 의 = 네 your (but pronounced and commontly written as 니 to diferenciate between 네 and 내)
  • the same rule applies to: 니가 = 네가 (and its def not the same as 내가)
  • 나/너 + 는 = 난 / 넌
  • 나/너 + 를 = 날 / 널

(since this is supposed to be quick and im totally improvising ill talk about titles later)

I decided to go through the Sally Hemings tag on ao3. I did it to find out if there was even more that was disrespectful to Sally and what I found what appalling and disgusting:

Do you forgot John Jay owned slaves?

Angelica Church owned slaves.

Thomas Jefferson raped Sally and you all think it is a fun little plot to make their relationship romantic in your garbage Hamilton fics. 

Haha, you didn’t remember James Madison owned slaves?

Hercules Mulligan owned slaves and this is disgusting, this was the “ship” I saw the most in the tags. 

Are you kidding me? 

Yeah, okay, you can choke and die. 

Really, shipping Sally with one of the biggest slave owning families in America at the time?

Of course, and you added her sister just so make Sally a throwaway object in your badly written and stupid fics. 

I found myself rubbing my eyes in disbelief. 

Hm. 

Filthy human being you are. 

This one brought tears to my eyes, how dare you bring her children into this, how dare you, you are a disgusting human being. You are a horrible human being. 

I hope you all choke, how dare you defile her memory in such a way. As I spoke about before but do not need to repeat, putting Sally Hemings into your fics is disrespectful and disgusting. How dare you take Sally and defile her memory in such a way. How, dare, you.
