Alright dear anon,
I know you mean well, I really do, and I thank you for taking the time to express your feelings. Here’s a story I’d like to recount you with—
The day I took photos as Carlos was an extremely terrible day. I was excited to cosplay him and yes, I did try and darken my skin, but after receiving a few messages that really beat down my confidence, I sat on my bathroom floor and cried. I told my friend coming to cosplay Cecil that they should just turn around and drive home and that’s when we decided what to do. We washed off my face along with the tears and apologized for something that I was actually excited for. In the end we didn’t do any more than setting my already existing makeup; eyebrows, foundation [In my skin tone which really doesn’t help me look any more ‘white’ and ‘not-racist’. The reason being is that I made the mistake of using a cream based acne medication that burned my skin when exposed to direct sunlight. On top of that, my face is darker due to acne and acne scarring. I can’t help that. I can’t help that photograph make me look disproportionate, but I’m learning to accept that my arms are olive, my legs are fleshy pink, my neck and shoulders are pale, an my face is dark and burn red or sometimes the regular foundation makes it darker than it really should be. I can’t help who I am.] I went out that day to take pictures the way I was. Sitting and crying about it wasn’t ping to help. I’m not a racist, but the fact that I wanted to cosplay a variation of the many different looks of a certain character defined by their voice makes me question the view of racism in out society.
You can’t LOOKS racist. My grandfather’s a racist sometimes but he just looks like a hearty Italian man. My dad is on the darker spectrum on Italian skin and you wouldn’t call him a racist for marrying a ginger would you? No one can look racist, even in roleplaying. If someone wants to cosplay a character with skin different from their own, that’s because they value the character enough to become them. They’re not prancing around shouting profanities. These people are trying to create a theatrical output, movie magic.
So to end this rant, and I’m sorry to call it that, I want to tell you that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Black facing to you may be racism, but it’s what people do once they’ve got the makeup on that really defines what kind of person they are.
You don’t call people who live in tanning beds racists do you?
so today it snowed for the first time this year and ive naturally been online all day and didnt know so i went to take out the garbage in bare feet and stepped in an inch snow and i just yelled "what the fUCK" and i just heard my neighbour in his backyard go “oh my god she’s outside”
200% sure that all of my friend have secret meetings where they just talk about how annoying I am
"I just need some affection. I don’t care, anybody can hug me." - (x)
Two puns for the price of one

when i was in 7th grade i asked my science teacher if there were other colors that existed and we just couldn’t see them and she said no but i couldn’t stop thinking “well how would we know anyway” and that’s how i had an existential crisis at the age of 12
Today in gym class we were doing major climbing and halfway up this girl freezes and goes “I CAN’T DO IT I CAN’T DO IT”
so some dude yells “MY AUNT SAID DAT AT HER WEDDIN’ BUT SHE MARRIED DAT FINE-ASS DOCTOR AND NOW SHE RICH AS HELL”
