hey so like if you’re a reylo shipper who also happens to be a person of color, could you please like this?
i wanna find more reylo shippers of color bc i think a lot about how reylo can be seen as racist by people who don’t ship them together (yts ending together, “no way Rey can be with Finn!” rhetoric that’s imbued with anti-Blackness) and like basically i just wanna know if anyone else also stays up and thinks about these things?
bc calling out racism, trying to stop systemic racism is really important to me as a woman of color so i just feel conflicted bc i’m shipping reylo and like it could just end up being a very bad, problematic thing and i just…………wanna talk about this???
as you can tell, i have been having a weird time about this
also can only reylo shippers of color respond to this? anyone can reblog/like but i’m not trying to get into full winded discussions about racism within nerd & fandom cultures, especially not with white ppl
