and their earth was crosseyed

anonymous asked:

But Lexa was supposed to look earthly so to say. It was a contrast to Skaikru. They look clean and pristine, the grounders look dirty and earthly. In reality, I sort of see it like this: Skaikru came to Earth and thought it belonged to them. They took over land and killed Grounders with the ring of fire. Lexa was their leader, and she had to sort of resemble them: they are people of Earth, they had to look the part.

I straight up just went crosseyed reading this like I can’t.

DO YOU KNOW HOW IGNORANT IT IS TO SAY THAT A “CULTURE” BASED OFF OF POC LOOKS “DIRTY?” WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY. PLEASE COME BACK AND EXPLAIN YOURSELF SO I CAN BLOCK YOU.

ALYCIA IS A WHITE GIRL. LXA IS A WHITE GIRL. IT IS WRONG TO HAVE HER IN BROWNFACE. IT IS WRONG TO HAVE HER WEAR A BINDI. ELIZA IS A WHITE GIRL. IT IS WRONG TO PUT DREADS IN CLARKE’S HAIR AND MAKE HER LOOK FUCKING ORANGE. OCTAGON IS A WHITE GIRL. IT IS WRONG TO HAVE HER BEAT HER BOYFRIEND AND TRY TO TELL HIM HOW HIS CULTURE WORKS. IT IS WRONG TO HAVE THE GROUNDERS BASED OFF OF RELIGION AND POC CULTURE JUST TO HAVE A WHITE AS FUCK GIRL WHO THEY WANT TO PLAY OFF AS NOT-SO-WHITE LEAD THEM. CONSISTENTLY. IT IS WRONG.

THIS ISN’T ABOUT ALYCIA, OR ELIZA, OR LXA OR CLARKE. THIS IS ABOUT THE WRITERS CONSISTENTLY BEING RACIST AND INSENSITIVE AND IGNORANT AND RECKLESSLY ARROGANT EVEN WHEN A MAJORITY OF THEIR FANBASE SPEAKS OUT, WHETHER IT’S ABOUT A DEATH AND MISTREATMENT OF A LGBTQ+ CHARACTER OR RACISM OR ABUSE OR ANYTHING ELSE. THEY ACTIVELY IGNORE THESE ISSUES AND CONTINUE ON WITH THEIR STORYLINES AND IT’S GETTING REAL SHITTY.
