Okay. I'm sorry but I really need to get this out. I've actually been chased away by your bullshit issues about art in the fandom,white people in the fandom and your racist views against white people. The artist do not intend to be racist and you sending your followers on them only discourages them and make you seem like a child. Just because someone is white does not make them racist or make their coloring issues or design flaws intentionally racist. You are the ADULT here. ACT LIKE ONE.
My racist views against white people?
My racist views against WHITE PEOPLE?
My RACIST views against white people?
My friend. My dude. My homie. I am white. And as a white person, I work hard every day to 1.) unlearn racial bias 2.) check my privilege and 3.) call out racism when I fucking see it. Being a silent ally has gotten us in the mess we are in with 45, and I refuse to be silent anymore.
I hope my comments and my followers DID discourage that artist from creating fucking offensive and racist content. Because the intention doesn’t matter. The fact was that image was horrible and deserved the be called out. Which I did respectfully since I am an adult, and the creator, also an adult, listened and changed it.
Because if we are adults, you know what adults should realize? Being called racist, or called out on your racist bullshit, even if it’s unintentional, is not the worst thing in the world. White people need to get over this. You know what’s worse than being called racist? Being a victim of racism and oppression.
And please, unfollow me, lose me with this shit. If that’s a make or break for you, that I called out an artist for creating racist content, I don’t want you following me anyway.
I try so hard to be nice and kind to everyone on this site. But I have to draw the line here, that if you are supportive of racist content, of sparing a creators ~feelings~ over this…. Sorry, but no art is created in a vacuum. Art means something.
And do not get me started on that fact that if you are white, you benefit from a system that runs on racism. So, whether you like it or not, you are recipient of white privilege, which makes your very life one supported by racism. You don’t have to use the n-word or wear a white robe to be racist. We (white people) all benefit from this system, so unless you are actively working to dismantle it, you are racist.
