Darrien Hunt was just a young nerdy cosplayer that liked anime and was still seen as a dangerous threat. like no matter how far away from a “thug” you behave if you are black you are a target you are being watched and you are not safe in America
The same as I have about white folks cosplaying any PoC characters - don’t (color)face, understand that your cosplay *can* be interpreted as PoC erasure, and make damn sure that your cosplay isn’t contributing to negative stereotypes of marginalized groups (ex. do not put on accents, do not pretend you are actually representative of said group). So as long as the cosplayer in question isn’t being a douche and insisting that their hobby is more important than respecting real-life cultures and the people who are part of them, I got no problem with it. We’re all fans, we all like stuff, and cosplaying is one aspect of expressing that joy.
ok so basically we had a referendum vote to see if we wanted independence
for a while it was really close and people were pretty much 50/50 on the decision
the votes came in at about 45% for yes and 55% for no
there was a lot of media bias by the bbc for the no campaign tbh
and nows there a few videos of whats to be believed people rigging the vote
now in glasgow unionists are rioting and targeting yes voters and doing nazi salutes and burning saltires
theres a chance it could escalate and spread to other towns as well
basically look at the stuff we’re reblogging and try educating yourself and please signal boost what is happening!!
