so had this conversation today and I realized that I shouldn’t bite my tongue about this
THIS SHOW THO
Daniel Thompson's imagining of Lupita Nyong'o as Storm has been tearing up my timeline today.
I WASN’T READY GODDAMN
I can’t breathe oh my god
For MedievalPOC, a blogger here on tumblr who receives endless hate and threats for exposing people to alternate historical narratives and for discussing systemic racism, criticizing academic gatekeeping and the disenfranchisement of American indigenous people to name a few.
I’ve learned so much from this person both in terms of facts and critical thinking skills that I wanted to give something back more tangible than a donation (although this person does all this amazing work for zero money [and possibly endangers their own personal safety as well as credibility in their chosen field] in their free time, so if you check out the blog and appreciate what you learn I’d encourage you to make a donation yourself)
Thank you so much for your dedication, passion, and time, MedievalPOC, you’re making a difference and though your progress will be hampered every step of the way by those benefiting from the status quo, you will also be supported and celebrated and I hope that gives you strength.
Wow, it’s almost like you don’t fucking know what you’re talking about at all. It’s not like pride and proper representation in the face of destructive violent ideology like white supremacy pervading culture is a moral imperative.
But you’re right.
If we just ignore it, and embrace assholes like you, your racism will magically vanish away.
Whenever, someone like you claims ‘ethnocentricism’, I know it’s because you feel personally insulted that someone had the audacity to centralize PoC for once. ‘We’re all human’ only seeks to assuage the feelings of those society already considers human.
I know you’re a complete piece of shit: ‘so called “culture”’. Trying to delegitimize us all while trying to sell us your colourblind and white supremacist bullshit. You know what keeps humanity divided? Literal scum of the earth like you, who only see value in what they deem worthy. Your ideology is a disease that you continue to pervade to those around you. Make no mistake: hostility is the only thing you will get from me.
If you didn’t care about my skin colour, why would you have a problem with diversity, and pride in the face of adversity? Yeah, let’s have a straight pride parade.
Right, a ‘melting pot’ is ‘the best’ thing: because then everyone will be racially ambiguous and white-passing, bow and concede to your white supremacist standards, and no one will look overtly Black? Is that what you’re saying?
You disgusting fucking Nazi bigot. Take your gross assimilationist colonialism elsewhere, you fucking cracker.
