I’ve been getting a lot of gross messages lately and they all complain about my cosplays just because of my race. Instead of taking it to heart, I put together some pictures of some of my favorite cosplays that I’ve done. I’m not cosplaying for “accuracy,” I’m doing it because it fun and I enjoy it. And even if I was doing it for said accuracy, my being black doesn’t hold me back from that. I’ll never understand people’s need to “critique” someone else but base it on a factor that they cannot change. That goes for skin color, race, body type whatever! Next time any of you want to message giving your opinion on the way someone looks naturally, shut your mouth! :) 💕

when ya boi feelin dapper as hekk and som hooha comes along like “eww it’s a sNaKe!!!! is it poisonous??!!1!1? i’m gonna kill it!!!11!!” n ur just liek “eKKXCusEeEeE mEeeEeEe??!!0?11?I”

Aside from the sadness/disappointment/self-deprecation induced tears, from canon we know that Bakugou is an angry crier, Kirishima a sympathetic crier and Kaminari a stress crier, which, when you really think about it, means that once one of them starts crying the possibility of all three of them ending up in tears is pretty high

oh hey so. saying a Black character is “a perfect sunshine boy!!” or “a Goddess!! she doesn’t need no man!!” can also be a form of dehumanization. 

when Black characters become such “pure cinnamon rolls” you can’t ship them, when they “deserve so much better” you refuse to pair them with any white fave, when they’re “just so flawless” they become boring, when you insist they’re “perfect” but then utterly and completely stop there, you’re reducing them to one dimension. 

they become props for white character development, cos you’re not letting them have any character of their own.

when the only characters that are flawed, relatable, interesting, complex, shippable, deserving of pages of meta for a 0.02 second glance ~just so happen to be~ white you’re indicating that they’re the only characters you see as fully human.
