but that's not racist

  • If I find someone with a similar last name as me, I don't automatically think we're related.
  • If a guy and my dad have the same jaw line, that doesn't make that guy my dad's brother. Or my brother.
  • If a person has the same skin tone or eye color as me doesn't mean we are related.
  • Please check your logic, antis. Because clearly its flawed.

sg writers: kara and james is just so forced! we don’t feel it! we can’t do it!

sg writers: now that mon-el and kara kiss tho!!! no words!!

Okay, Okay. I like the Gabriel Reyes who eats hispanic food, who curses and throws shade in Spanish, celebrates/ sticks to traditions and what not. But I’ll raise you super(and maybe a bit racist?) Hispanic Gabe for...

A Gabe who is torn between two cultures. 

A Gabe who is a first generation Mexican(or whatever you headcanon him as)-American. A Gabe who can understand most Spanish but fails to communicate in it. A Gabe who’s first language is English because his parents wanted him to have more oppertunities in school and not be made fun of for struggling to speak or for having an accent. A Gabe who is shunned by Spanish-Speakers for not being able to speak it fluently. A Gabe who is called a Pocho constantly. A Gabe who knows more about American Holidays than Hispanic ones because it’s what his school and the Media taught him. A Gabe who felt insecure about his Hispanic heritage. A Gabe who tries to learn more about his heritage and language. A Gabe who gets shit on so bad for making a mistake on either of those things. A Gabe who looks Hispanic but is more American because he assimilated too well. 

A Gabe who didn’t fit in either category. A Gabe who grew up in LA never fitting in with his own kind and looking like a poser among the whites. A Gabe who tried to learn Spanish in High School only to be made fun of. A Gabe who was poor but couldn’t fucking relate to anybody. A Gabe who was judged by white people for how he looked and by Hispanics for how he acted. A Gabe constatly called ‘white washed’. A Gabe who floundered between both cultures with no solid footing in either. A Gabe who couldn’t relate.

A Gabe who never felt good enough. 

A Gabe who felt like an inferior Hispanic and a wannabe White. 

A Gabe who didn’t feel like he wasn’t fully one or the other.

A Gabe who felt…like he was nothing.

Yeah, yeah, it’s fun to think of him as being fully Hispanic in culture. I see comics and stories with ‘la chancla, tortillas, pendejo,’ etc. But…fuck do you know how fitting it is for Gabe to be a ‘Pocho’?

He doesn’t have any spanish lines and he grew up in LA. His parents probably wanted their boy to be more ‘American’ because they themselves struggled to fit in to the country because of the language barrier and cultural barrier. They thought they were doing Gabe a favor by making him more ‘American’. But in the end they did more harm than good. And that left him feeling horrible and conflicted his whole life.

And I know some of you are like ‘Well you’re just trying to white wash him!’ But that’s not the point. I was the same. I grew up in an American Culture but with a Mexican apperance. It sucks being stuck between two cultures. It really fucking dose and the idea of having Gabriel Reyes, aka Reaper, going through the same shit I did is really comforting. 

I’m not saying you should adopt this HC, I know not everyone is like this. But a lot of people are and I think it’s important to point out that someone can be Hispanic without being full on stereotypical. It takes away a lot of depth from a person and charachter, y’know?

smh .. its sad.

So I wanted to test the theory of  being a white sugar baby vs. being a black sugar baby. So I created a fake SA profie I used the EXACT same descriptions I had on profile. & just pulled some pics from google, of a white girl. The page is lit yall I swear her messages and interest are on fire.

So black sugar babies DONT EVER feel like its you. DONT let these white girls paint an easy picture for you, THATS ALLLLL PRIVELEGE. Its these racist as SD’S THAT ARE THE PROBLEM, and I’m thinking about scamming these fuckers

ps - Tinder is very pro-color in my area and I’ve heard great stories from other babies.

  • you, a p*nsmione fic writer: "the first time hermione worked with pansy she found her insufferable uwu"
  • me, an intellectual: pansy called her a mudblood which is a literal racial slur, if you read the metaphor correctly. thats not 'insufferable', thats oppressive. on top of which you're writing a black hermione, and in fact pansy canonically made antiblack comments for example when she said angelina's braid looked like worms, something that happens in real life every day to black women by racist white women. thats not 'insufferable' thats racist. please don't ship racists with people of color i cannot believe i have to tell you this. what the fuck the fuck
Rant

I hate tumblr so much sometimes. Yall dont care about how good something is or how worthy a film or person is to get an Oscar. Yall only care about skin color…the same shit yall complain about. Like if a white person wins an Oscar you go ape shit angry like “those damn whites winning again” Yeah they won because they have talent…don’t put down another person who won just because their skin color. You may not agree with it but thats fine…but no need to be racist yourself. That defeats the purpose of equality and peace.

the degree to which the harry stans who somehow have made it their mission in life to spend every goddamn waking hour of the day attempting to drag meghan markle (and failing miserably at it) because… she’s dating harry and they’re not (??? i feel like we can all agree that that’s the only plausible explanation for actively hating a strong, kind and intelligent woman who have done nothing to personally harm you) lack a general awareness of their own deplorable behaviour is amazing to me

Why I ship darus

Okay first things first I’m writing this at about midnight and just can’t get my mind off of it so if this doesn’t make a lot of sense well I’m sorry. Second of all, i don’t really need to explain why darus is my life but this is more just some back story as to why i would want this to be canon –and even if it won’t then I will still love twd–

So my main and number 1 reason for shipping darus is because of Daryl’s backstory. We know he is from Georgia which is a southern state, we also know southern states are notorious for being homophobic/racist (not saying all are, I’m saying thats where you’d typically think to find them). So with this we can imply that his father was most likely both of those things and not to mention a drunk asshole who abused both Daryl and Merel. We still don’t know why he abused them, it could just be that he was an abusive father but I think that it’s something more than that especially with Daryl. I think that Daryl’s dad thought Daryl was gay from his lack of being sexual with women. We know this from his encounters with Carol, but I do believe most of the beating were because he thought Daryl was gay. Then we get to the fact that Merel had always questioned Daryl’s masculinity calling him “Darlene” ect. We already know Merel is racist, at least a little from season 1, so we can also guess he would be homophobic again based off of where they are. This all in mind now we get to the biggest turn of events, I believe Daryl is asexual and demiromantic. Woah I know big twist but let me explain. Daryl has never been sexual with anyone, at least not that we’ve seen, and he’s never -really- been romantic with anyone either. This is where the asexual comes from and the demiromantic comes from the fact that he never really got a connection with anyone again at least that we have seen. But as time goes on he’s starting to grow closer and closer to Jesus. Yes this sorta happened with Beth but him and Beth were forced together, he choses to be around Jesus (that or Jesus forces him but then again he could just leave in that case) and he seems to look at Carol as the mother he technically had but lost at a young age. With that being said I think that if he does like Jesus romantically he was taught by his family that it was wrong and that he shouldn’t and that he would have a rather rough time coming to conclusions with it himself. With his backstory and what I think his sexuality is, I 100% think that he likes Jesus in more of a romantic way than a platonic way, and that because of the way he was raised and the lack of sexual desire he doesn’t know how to express it. There’s a lot more detail I could go into but I’m pretty sure you get the gist of it.

My second reason and probably not as good as my first is the chemistry between them and the richonne parallels. It’s obvious these boys both have trust issues and both feel useless when they don’t have something to do. They have so much in common with each other that they both have yet to learn about (broken families, past relations ships *platonic and romantic* ect.). With that they are also two completely different people that i’m pretty sure it’s impossible to be that different. I’m pretty sure you’re all like how tf is that a reason to ship them and well I’ll tell you why. This just shows that they are going to grow and need each other to help themselves and the other grow and learn to move on/get passed certain things. Both of them are very stubborn so it’s gonna take awhile but if they were to get into a relationship i fully with everything in me believe that they would help each other cope and grow into stronger people even more then already. We know Daryl is at a rough spot and Jesus can definitely help him with time and a lot of patience. Not to mention that during that time Daryl would also help Jesus to learn to trust more and open up. They would be such a good couple for each other it physically pains me i stg. And the richonne parallels are kinda self explanatory but definitely what made me start shipping them to begin with.

So i could go on with a few more reasons but these are really the reasons and theories that make me ship darus and hope that the writers make it canon. Again no matter what happens I love the show and even if darus never happens I will still love Jesus and Daryl and continue watching. I just think with all of this plus the added fact of how awkward and raw the relationship would be would just make it feel even more like real life then before. Sorry for making this really long and hey if you still don’t ship it thats cool too dude. And also again sorry if this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense but to me my reasons are very clear and hopefully some of you get it too, especially the first one because i don’t think I did a good job explaining it even tho it’s the longest of the reasons. Anyways have a lovely Darus filled night - Max

Why has there been a sudden increase in "protect kihyun" posts? He does need to be protected from all the bullfuckery he gets but why the sudden increase in the need to protect?

yesterday theres been some people who feel like its ok to post certain slurs and attack him on a mx vlive chat(which mx can read, mind you), that was not only an insult but racist(some rly sick humour). thats what started this. people were accusing kihyun again of stealing lines and whatnot (this is really old tbh) but personally i wouldn’t say thats all; 

i feel like a lot of their publicity portrays kihyuns surface personality very… extremely, and the fandoms been conditioned to stereotyping him as some savage, rude, mean character(although at the beginning it may have been an inside joke w affection). since there are many new mbb, its “bullfuckery” as you say has been spreading like wildfire as of late, with no filter. there are actually mbb who specifically dont like kihyun, and act on it.

tl:dr, kihyun gets shit he doesn’t deserve and someone finally pushed it too far so the topic was brought onto tumblr. its a new era so a lot of ppl are making posts about leaving derogatory comments behind (for wonho and shownu as well), and it spread, so here we are

im so confused i just saw straight up poe dameron hate on the star wars tag?? i didn’t know that was even an option like whats wrong with people? they called him uninteresting?? Like stfu? sure you can have your opinions but im pretty sure it was just some racist kyle ron stan thats upset because they didnt get what they wanted

anonymous asked:

your art is pretty but why would you call the gerudo outfit sin? thats racist and orientalist, its fetishizing a culture and objectifying it. the same as straight girls calling their gay ships a sin. its terrible.

You’re referring to the outfit made strictly for women that’s used by a male protagonist in order to sneak into a female society, right?

The “sin” I’m referring to is that of Link wearing the gerudo outfit and appearing more attractive, which I then applied to Sidon. I’m not really saying that of all clothing the outfit is based on is sin(even though the modern belly dancing attire it’s based on is known for being designed specifically for coming off as provocative) :)
You are not born racist. You are born into a racist society. And like anything else, if you can learn it, you can unlearn it. But some people choose not to unlearn it, because they’re afraid they’ll lose power if they share with other people. We are afraid of sharing power. That’s what it’s all about.
