You love my videos…but not enough to watch them or actually read the resources I share in them or on Tumblr huh? Look, I really don’t wanna be a bitch but I’m so so tired of getting this question every Halloween. Right now I have over a dozen “is my costume appropriate?” asks and it’s incredibly annoying disrespectful. I spend a lot of my free time (more than I should) providing information about these issues so you can learn but at some point you need to educate yourself. Not only that, I go out of my way to not be preachy or “aggressive” so no one gets their fee fees hurt when I ask them very nicely not to be racist. Like….I cannot spoon feed you this information anymore than I already have.
My skin color is not a fun costume for you to try on for a night of drunken debauchery and trick or treating. Black people are being KILLED right now just for existing and you want to trivialize our existence for your costume’s “accuracy”? And then you have the nerve to ask me to explain to you why that’s offensive? Because it’s such a burden for you to hop your ass over to Google or scroll back ONE PAGE of my Tumblr and watch the video I made about appropriative costumes? Or maybe you could watch the Kat Blaque video I’ve shared multiple times about blackface where she included extensive research?
I consider myself to be a woman with a high level of patience, but it has worn extremely thin. This is what I get for trying and this is why so many other people of color tell ya’ll to f-off when you demand education. I’m not here to write anyone’s papers, do research for their job, evaluate their Halloween costume or hold their hand and help them feel more comfortable about the casual racism they clearly know they’re partaking in. You know good and well why painting your skin for “accuracy” isn’t ok and if you don’t, Google. And if you still don’t get it, or don’t care, paint your skin and have the time of your life while real life black people march and cry out asking for this country to respect our humanity and stop killing us for being black. Don’t worry though, no one will mistake your painted brown skin for an actual person of color, so you’re totally safe. Have a wonderful Halloween.

ALL DOGS SEE YOU AT YOUR MOST UNFLATTERING ANGLE WHERE IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE TWELVE THOUSAND CHINS AND THEY ARE STILL SO HAPPY TO SEE YOUR BEAUTIFUL SELF THAT THEIR ENTIRE BODY VIBRATES, HOW GREAT IS THAT?
When you deteriorate, in any way, you feel, do things, and connect differently. When this process is slow, your characters will change the way they connect with their surroundings.
This is a hard question to answer because, we all go through different situations and we all react differently towards them. I’ll do what I probably shouldn’t do, answering this question from a personal experience. Not for you to write in your story but to take as a possible guide.
Because not everyone is interested in this subject, because some people don’t want to discuss this matter,
and because I’ve never told anyone about it, below there’s the information.
god, white women give me acute stomach pains
coping manuals for white girls that ain’t shit.
How did I use two weeks worth of energy in one day?
Each main Legend of Korra villain represents a different political ideology.
Even the more minor villains like Varrick (who is not always necessarily a villain) and the Earth Queen represent ideologies as well: Capitalism and Monarchy, respectively.
