@aspecardaweek day 5: Relationships → queerplatonic Gigolas
We have heard tell that Legolas took Gimli Glóin’s son with him because of their great friendship, greater than any that has been between Elf and Dwarf. If this is true, then it is strange indeed: that a Dwarf should be willing to leave Middle-earth for any love, or that the Eldar should recieve him, or that the lords of the West should permit it
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, Appendix A, "Durin's Folk"

I think something that I had to learn, and something that other people should also learn, is that the statements
“Other countries, even those populated by non-white people, can be just as oppressive if not more oppressive than countries populated by white people”
“People who have origins in or ties to oppressive countries do not deserve to be punished for the actions of those governments”
can and should coexist with one another when discussing foreign politics.
