ignore anyone who tells you otherwise.
No white girls?
Why? You do t think white girls should be told they’re beautiful?
The amount of white whine in the notes…it’s ridiculous.
Every time we ask for the inclusion of young girls and women of color in pieces similar to this, where everyone is white, we’re told
"If you want representation then make it yourself and shut up about this!"
“Let the artist make whatever they want and include whoever they want! Freedom of expression!”
"If you need to see someone who looks like you in order to feel included then you are the real racist."
Yet all I see in the notes are:
"If you want equality you have to include EVERYONE including white girls and guys!"
“it’s pathetic that the only way you can feel good about yourself is by excluding others.”
No doubt they feel some type of way with their own bodies but what is dedicating a piece such as this to women who fall no where near the Eurocentric standards of beauty taking away from white women when they have so much representations and campaigns centered around them.
Goddamn so much all of this. I’m mixed my mother is white and my father is black, my POC side is the side I identify with. Why? Because ever since I was a child I’ve had white people constantly making sure I KNEW that I wasn’t WHITE and didn’t fit the mold.
I grew up thinking I was ugly and wrong, that my skin was dirty. You want to see white beauty represented? Leave the house, turn on the TV, read a book. Literally do ANYTHING besides invade POC spaces. Get the fuck out of POC spaces. GET. THE. FUCK. OUT.
