My problem with today was never lol what about the white people
My problem today was the same problem I have with any POC representation i see on tumblr all the time.
It didn’t include anything BUT black folk
What about Chinese? Japanese? Vietnamese? Indians? Koreans?
What about Native Americans? Cubans? Jamaicans? Mexicans? Anyone from a latino country.
What about Inuit? God knows they need representation more than anything right now.
Some people may go, “Oh the Asian countries don’t need Representation! Everyone thinks they look good,” NO. People from asia are often sexualized in America. Most POC, Especially Woman POC, Are.
Hell, if you REALLY want to get into it, anyone from east Europe also should be included in some sort of day.
And the biggest problem i had? When people pointed this out, others got aggressive. “no, you don’t need a day! Black people are the ONLY ones affected by western beauty standards” Yeah thats.
Thats bull shit. We need more POC representation. And by POC representation, I mean all POC, not just Blacks.
I should mention, Im not saying “HEY LETS GET RID OF ALL BLACK REPRESENTATION” Nah bro. Im saying that thats literally the only thing I see on tumblr. Lemme tell you, The only time I see native american representation? When It involves face paint or halloween costumes. Anything else? Highly ignored. Middle easterns? HA! Only if theyre muslim. Other than that? Ignored.
So, POC That are dont often have representation. Who are ignored by more tumblr SJB because it won’t make them look good.
MAKE YOUR OWN DAYS
GIVE YOURSELF REPRESENTATION.
GO GO GO
GIVE YOURSELF LOVE TOO.
