    I don’t think that people generally realise what motion picture industry has done to the American Indian, as a matter of fact, all ethnic groups, all minorities, all non-whites. And people just simply don’t realise, just take it for granted that that’s the way people are going to be presented and these clichés are just, I mean on this network every night, well perhaps not every night, but you can see silly renditions of human behaviour, the leering Filipino houseboy, the wily Japanese, the kook or the gook, black man, stupid Indian. It just goes on and on and on. And people actually don’t realise how deeply people are injured by seeing themselves represented, not so much the adults, who are already inured to that kind of pain and pressure, but children. Indian children seeing Indians represented as savage, as ugly, as nasty, vicious, treacherous, drunken. They grow up only with a negative image of themselves and it lasts a lifetime.

    Dear white people,

    Please stop cosplaying as PoC characters.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone.

    Dear little-missandry,

    Anyone can cosplay as anyone/anything they want. Also, that’s the actual voice actress for Korra. She literally IS the avatar.

    Thank you

    Sincerely,

    Its also funny because if someone with darker skin cosplayed a white character they’d talk about how brave and awesome the person is.

    ANYONE SHOULD COSPLAY ANYTHING THEY WANT

    Y’all need to learn the difference between cultural appropriation and cultural appreciation. Thus…

    Dear white people,

    Cosplay is awesome but if you do blackface you deserve to get your ass kicked. Also, no one gives a fuck if your great great grandmother was a Cherokee princess, take off the headdress and back away slowly. Recognize there are still white actors/actresses playing PoC roles and how unfair it is to not have your community best represented. For example, TigerLily (a Native American ‘princess’ in Peter Pan) is being represented by a white woman.  So, not only is this PoC character being sold as exotic (she’s a Princess despite all tribes were democratic and she lives in a land where mermaids exist.), she can’t accurately look like a PoC without offending a whole race of people. (Redface=blackface.) With 566 tribes still alive today, there’s gotta be a young woman who could best represent this Native character. This is why it’s so hard to see white friends cosplay a PoC…it’s like..’damn, you’ve got thousands of (white) characters to chose from and you’re gonna dress up as someone that looks like me. So, not only is my race a costume for you, but you don’t even have to deal with the shit that comes with having my skin. You see me as exotic or badass (etc.) but you don’t have to deal with being a target of racism. Even if you’re smart enough not to do black/red/yellow face, it still sucks that you can’t truly walk in my shoes.’

    As for PoC dressing up as white characters, you should be more lenient. Their options are limited (due to the lack of PoC characters), stereotypical, or overdone and not original anymore. 

    A white man once said, “Get over it.” Listen to your elders.

    I created this Street Harassment and Street Harassment + Misogynoir BINGO card (latter particular to intraracial misogynoir and street harassment as experienced by Black women), cataloguing the most common excuses provided to justify this violence towards women. It’s been on my mind for a while as excuses said to me, some of which I wrote months ago in 10 Common Ignorant Replies Made To Women Who Discuss Experiencing Street Harassment, but also surfaced in response to some of the excuses being used to derail an upcoming anti-street harassment chat #YouOkSis (hosted by @Russian_Starr and @FeministaJones) scheduled for Thursday, July 10th at 12pm.

    As you know and I’ve shared here, I’ve experienced this violence for almost 23 years now, and have written about street harassment for two years in detail in my Street Harassment Is Violence (Essay Compilation) with perspectives from a variety of angles including: what I experience most which is intraracial street harassment, street harassment from White male cops/White men who associate Black womanhood itself with sex work and violently so, experiencing PTSD because of street harassment, some Black people’s demands for silence and derailment on this topic because of fear of the White Gaze coupled with lack of compassion for and recognition of Black women’s humanity and call Black women speaking truth to power “divide and conquer,” how it is in fact violence about reclamation/affirmation of power and not “flirting,” the racist and anti-intersectional mainstream media framing and centering of White women as the only victims of street harassment with Black men as only perpetrators, and how that removes other men’s culpability and silences Black women experiences, and many more perspectives. 

    Please join for the #YouOkSis chat if you can/able though be aware that racist, sexist, misogynoiristic men of a variety of backgrounds have planned to derail it and harm, however, as there are organized and disorganized campaigns to silence Black women online, in general. And while the focus is Black women— because margin needs to be centered versus silenced—understanding how women oppressed at multiple intersections and dehumanized via anti-Blackness and misogynoir actually facilitates the illumination of the understanding of those usually centered, and this facilitation doesn’t have to occur through erasure or co-opt via generalization. Margin to center is womanism. It is anti-Blackness and misogynoir (and often [trans]misogynoir as Black trans women face brutal street harassment and worse) to suggest Black women don’t deserve the space or time to analyze our experiences and value our own lives, to be clear. Specificity is not “oppression olympics” but is a matter of survival for Black women. 

    The chat isn’t only for Black women either; Black men who KNOW that they are more than a violent portrayal of a White supremacist and anti-Black construction of masculinity (and reject performing masculinity as such) and want safer and healthier experiences for Black women and our communities are welcome to be there. In fact, one of the moderators is a Black man. And since non-cishet or non-cis or non-het or non-binary gender Black people also experience street harassment, of course all of these voices matter.

    This violence and the excuses have to stop. The demand for Black women to be silent has to stop.
