Tumblr Talks – Social Issues

Oh, look!It must be Tuesday.

*More about fandom racism. For some reason we keep trying to prove this fairly self-evident point to people. I just don’t think its a problem that can be solved by individual white fans questioning their actions. Not that that doesn’t help. Every little bit helps. I don’t think it will be solved until the larger problem of representation in mainstream media is addressed. White people need to get used to seeing that marginalized people can have their own narratives outside of servicing  white  characters. The only way to get to that point is for poc to be featured in our own narratives more often. (Assuming, of course, the point of all this is  the solving of the problem and not simply awareness.)
