nonblack people hush. this is not your “history being made”. this is not your victory. i know children who attend MY school who were brutalized by police YESTERDAY and thus the battle continues. black people are still being oppressed and affected by generations of trauma, so seeing you rejoice in a sliver of accountability from a system that functions to fuel mass incarceration of our people offers no joy, solace or solidarity. continue to amplify OUR voices and OUR activism keeping our people alive, safe and thriving rather than trying to claim progress over our corpses
If any followers or passers-by to this post are currently fans of Hetalia and/or Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin, as a former fan of both, I am begging you: extricate yourself from those fandoms and stop consuming those properties as quickly and quietly as possible. If you can bring your friends and mutuals along with you, even better! It is simply not worth it (and downright dangerous) to be consuming what is essentially fascist propaganda at all, never mind now, when we’re seeing a global rise in fascism.
