Alright so I might lose followers for this but at this point I really don’t even care anymore.
You know what really makes me upset? When people preach about the lack of POC’s and only include African American faceclaims in their rants. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for equality and I’m really glad they’re being represented more — I’m just upset that nobody seems to represent Asians. There are more Asians than any other race on the entire planet, and for some reason, Tumblr seems to turn a blind eye towards the Asian population. Yes, there was the Civil Rights Movement and African Americans were being mistreated. But guess what? So were the Asians. Asians have been immigrating to the US for ages, and despite the history we have there, Asians are still treated as second class citizens even now.
I’m sorry this got a little heated, but I’m just damn angry that nobody has spoken up about this beyond the whole “Shay Mitchell cast as Mulan in Disney roleplays” debacle.
