Is it still okay to follow if I'm white and want to thread with other muns regardless of colors? And will there be a directory for white muns too, that are open and would like to just rp with everyone? I want to support this project but... I'm not sure I'm even welcome...? >//<
It’s ok to follow if you are white, I cannot really stop you from following this blog. Just realize that this blog was not created for white people and will only cater to the poc community.
The Tumblr roleplay community is predominately white and while they (white muns)can create characters of color they are often whitewashed, enforce negative stereotypes, fetishized, etc. This makes being a poc in such a community very alienating and uncomfortable. This is also why this blog exists you see; this blog is a mean of communication and positivity and support for the muns of color in such a problem-riddled community.
This blog exists for these muns to be able to comfortably interact with others with similar backgrounds and experiences without the fear and discomfort that comes with constantly having to argue and interact with a larger community that refuses to recognize it’s racism and will attack those who call them out on it. Discourse my friend is tiring. Discourse where the question is ‘Are people of color entitled to being treated and portrayed as actual people?’ is exhausting.
So in short no, this blog is not a place for white muns to find and interact with muns of color. You can support muns of color and this project and follow this blog, but this blog is not for you and that is why you probably feel unwelcome. If you would like to interact with everyone regardless of color, try using one of the other directories
