If you're here for my artwork I suggest you follow my art blog instead as this blog is a mishmash of silliness and personal posts.
This blog can and will contain artwork (mine and others), personal posts, occasional fandom posts, cute animals, selfies, and social justice sometimes.
I am dealing with depression and anxiety and sometimes might talk about it.
If you ever need someone to talk to or share your problems with, my ask box is open to you.
I actually had a friend ask me what PoC was once and was able to educate him on what it meant. It seemed to flick a switch...I live in a pretty racist area, and used to be racist myself. On that note, what advice do you have for someone who is striving to not be as racist? I get frustrated sometimes because people don't speak my language and it's hard to understand what's going on.
What people say to other people is none of your business. You don’t always have to know what’s going on with other people. Yes, even if they’re talking about you.
If they can’t speak english and you have to communicate with them, it’s not their fault. Do the best you can.
Ignore everything you’ve ever learned about being “colorblind.” It doesn’t exist. You’re going to notice if someone’s black. As much as you’ll notice is someone is blonde. Noticing someone’s not white doesn’t make you racist.
People are always people. Some PoCs are going to be assholes and if they do something assholish, it’s okay to think that. Some PoCs are going to be awesome. Be their friend.
PoCs don’t want to be special, they want to just be treated like humans.
Treat them like humans.
It’s a long process to rid oneself of internalized racism.
But you’ll be fine, just stick with it and stick to your morals.
