mystic animism

Sorry for the whole race discourse going on but imma join the boat and say this: people of color aren't mystic animals! "Oh i wanna learn more about poc i dont wanna be racist" wtf what are we, exotic plants? If you're gonna act racist then we'll correct you, don't worry! We aren't gonna bite you for asking things. Geez, what has Tumblr done to these kids. You're not racist if you don't portray poc incorrectly. Such a thing doesn't even exist. What are you trying to portray (1/?)

? The skin color, the culture, the language? We aren’t just “black people”. There are literally thousands (maybe even millions) of different cultures in Africa. You shouldn’t worry about our skin color, but to represent things right. You shouldn’t “learn more about PoC” as if only PoC have one, homogeneous culture. In fact, as a black woman living in Europe, I’ve seen more misrepresentation of the various European cultures because americans love to sum (2/?) an entire continent to “medieval castles! fantasy! magic! uwu” *that* is wrong. That is misrepresentation. Culture doesn’t have anything to do with skin color. Like the other anon said, stop treating us as if we were ‘delicate’. Jesus. (3/3)


i think from a white standpoint it’s more… if we can prevent saying or doing anything racist, then we’re going to. culture-wise it’s like learning about any other culture in school, just do your research. for art if youre wanting to create ocs who arent white then do research and look at different features of different people.

i obviously dont speak for all, but i think it’s less white people trying to treat someone delicately and more wanting to prevent racist portrayals or again, perpetuating harmful stereotypes. 

this is a good point tho– i think there’s definitely a line

  • Unusual Friendship Between Wolf And Bear 
  • Documented By Finnish Photographer
  • Via Medieval Dreams

“It’s very unusual to see a bear and a wolf getting on like this” says Finnish photographer Lassi Rautiainen, 56, who took these surprising photos. The female grey wolf and male brown were spotted every night for ten days straight, spending several hours together between 8pm and 4am. They would even share food with each other.
“No-one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends,” Lassi told the Daily Mail. “I think that perhaps they were both alone and they were young and a bit unsure of how to survive alone…It is nice to share rare events in the wild that you would never expect to see.”

ATTENTION CAT LOVERS

If you find a cat outside, DO NOT JUST TAKE IT HOME! Take it to a vet to check for a chip. Many cats do not like collars so owners get them chipped instead. If you take a cat home without checking for a chip YOU COULD BE STEALING SOMEONE ELSE’S PET!!!
I feel like too many people just take home random “strays” so I decided to post about this. Please reblog to spread the word.
