Blackout - A great idea, but it's gone too far.
Just wanted to give my thoughts about the whole “Blackout” thing going on for the past month or however long. Some background - I’m a gay Latino man (so don’t go calling me a straight white male; only one of those is true). Here’s a basic progression of my thoughts on everything about the movement:
Blackout is announced - “Hey, that’s cool, great idea. Nice to see minorities getting recognized.”
Other races’ selfie days announced and torn down - “Okay, I get it, don’t want to take away from the Blackout. Though a Latino selfie day would’ve been cool.
Blackout is declared the first Friday of every month - "Seems a little excessive, but hey, whatever.”
April’s blackout moved to Thursday to keep autistics from having their day - “Okay, seriously, chill the fuck out…that was just stupid. Let autistics have their day.”
Another blackout added in April to coincide with Armenian Genocide Remembrance day - “REALLY!? Just stop. Please. Now it’s become a screaming pissbaby match.”
Now, Cinco de Mayo/MIRAME hated for being “pre-blackout” appropriation -
“FUCK YOU SJWS. JUST FUCK YOU SJWS.”
You whining idiots have ruined blackout, and selfie days in general, for everyone, including the black people you so idolize (I’ve noticed it’s mostly been white SJWs calling for adding blackouts and the moving them around bullshit). Like with everything, you take a good cause (give blacks more visibility!) and turned it into who can be the biggest victims. If you’d left well enough alone after the initial blackout, or even after the once-a-month thing, it would have been fine. But that wouldn’t feed your victim complexes, would it?
