Go Forth and Educate Yourselves!
I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pv8mCHbOrs (Part 1)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neEVoFODQOE (Part 2 - Has very important points on Reverse Racism and how it doesn’t exist, and it also dismantles the “We All Bleed Red” mentality.)
Not only should you educate yourself but use this for good. Look around you and help others who don’t have this privilege. Hiring, donating, community service, etc.
After this post went viral, the original artist had to delete their tumblr because they were inundated with death threats.
There were people more offended by this comic than offended by the existence of racial disparities—to the point where they threatened this artist’s life.

James Patterson paid for a full-page ad in The New York Times criticizing Amazon, Scott Turow talked about the “nightmarish” future that Amazon will bring and Stephen King signed a petition decrying the Seattle online retailer.
They do this as if they are fighting for the little guy.
The ‘1 percent’ mega best-selling authors side with giant publishing corporate entities because they make a lot of money from them. The rest of us don’t.
Frank Schaeffer, “The publishers, not Amazon, keep authors down”
WOAH, HOLD THE PHONE. I had never even considered this before and it’s an amazing point. Amazon has been made out to be this big evil entity, but we should all remember that it’s Amazon vs. publishers, not Amazon vs. writers!
Wow, I just love reading perspectives like this that totally change my own.

ok this annoys the crap out of me, firstly the font in question costs a fortune, secondly no link to something that can change a persons life as it did mine, so here lemme fix both of those:

I nearly laughed breakfast out of my mouth when I read this.
- Either don’t. In short, race won’t change the character. What they are. It will change their skin color. Amazing, right? They’re going to have a skin that won’t be white, or whatever is the norm where you live.
- Or do it respectfully. How exactly? Well it’s simple. Study what skin color changes for these people, and how they live. No one is color blind. No one. And it will change some things about their life, and what they went through. Don’t use a ton of stereotypes, more often than not these are a) offensive and b) Wrong. As. Fuck. Let’s say I want to write a guide on how to write an ‘Hispanic’ character in the US. What do I put in my guide?
1 - I do my research on how Hispanic people are treated in the US. Do they have a harder time getting jobs than ‘white’ people? How is racism doing for them? Was there a time where it was worse? Is there states in which it’s worse or best for them? This is extremly important. Ask yourself yourself about how racism, in a certain country, a certain part of our planet, hurt this community. Think about it, and help the players who might read your guide to see it too.
2 - What is hispanic exactly? It’s, obviously, more than a skin color. It’s people who come from a few different countries, and have different cultures. You don’t have to write about all of these cultures, but list them. Tell us where these Hispanic people come from. Link us, if possible, to websites or other guides telling us about these countries. Instead of researching about stereotypes, research about these cultures and sub-cultures.
3 - And now that they’re in the US, or wherever you want the ‘destination’ of your guide to take place, what’s left of these cultures and sub-cultures? The people who came here, of course, brought a bit of it, but there’s no ‘Hispanic’ culture in the US. What did the Mexicans bring with them? How about the Dominicans? What part of the US culture have been influenced by these many ‘Hispanic’ cultures? What are these well known things no one would guess are part of these cultures?
4 - Make sure that your guide isn’t full of stereotypes. Make sure that it’s not offensive. And definitely, make sure to say that race is just a skin color. A character might identify as hispanic, they will first and foremost identify as Mexican, Dominican, Spanish or whatever nationality they might be. What matters is the culture. It’d be way more interesting to make a guide about the culture from a country or a state than to make one about an ethnicity. So please, keep this in mind.
i’m just gonna laugh over this for a few hours
nobody is trying to be special or “hot shit” by wanting more poc characters in rps. all we want is diversity. and just what is wrong with wanting more diversity? nothing ! you know what is really fucking wrong? people like you who think it’s okay to just have all white characters just because a good plot will make up for the bullshit racism in the rp community.
