lmfAO I LOST A FOLLOWER
WHAT’S WRONG, CAN’T HANDLE A LITTLE TRUTH
i’m fucking feisty tonight, i love it
it’s a refreshing change from being walked all over last weekend
you tore them a new one though and it was glorious
thanks, babe. <3 i don’t play around with that kind of shit.
wow, i really hope this anon went to all four hundred and eighty five people that reblogged my post and confronted them on how they’re being rude and shit.
i hope they told every single person that reblogged that how wrong they were.
also, out of every single person that reblogged that, exactly one reblogged that with any sort of comment that contested the post.
i wonder who my fucking anon is.
dude, have the fucking balls to show your fucking face or don’t come in my askbox at all.
i really don’t have the patience for this. i’m trying to help a friend who needs me right now, so your bullshit is irrelevant, thanks.
trust me when i say i care about my friend far more than i care about you or some post i made. i’d gladly trade the brief tumblr fame i got from this post for her wellbeing.
ok, how about you calm yours? need i remind you that you sought me out and started it? so if anyone needs to calm down it’s you. don’t fucking start shit if you’re gonna tell me that i need to calm down.
i’ve also read the series, my friend. it also doesn’t explicitly say she’s white. so what do you say to that? should we just cast white people forever unless it SPECIFICALLY STATES that the character is a poc? because that IS racism, and it’s erasure of other cultures and other ethnicities in favor of one.
also, i never said people who don’t agree that katniss is a poc are racist. if you go back and read my post, it says this:
what that is referring to is an incident on my dash where a beautiful piece of fanart depicting katniss with darker skin tone (wow, i might even say olive skin tone) was met with “what the fuck? katniss isn’t that tan. she’s white, not brown. you’re ruining the books!”
as you can see by my photographic evidence, nowhere in that post did i proclaim that everyone who thinks katniss is white is a racist piece of garbage. i said it would be easy to spot the racist piece of garbage that hides out in every fandom by posting said fanart.
don’t fucking come in my askbox and make it out like i’m on a rampage to eliminate everyone who disagrees with my personal opinion, because that’s not what i’m doing here. if you want to argue anything, feel free to argue that i’m on a rampage to eliminate ignorance and racism because i will happily admit that that is what i’m doing.
it’s not racist (per se) to not agree that katniss is a poc. it is racist to meet any argument that she MIGHT be a poc with NO SHE’S NOT SHE’S WHITE LALALALALALALALALA. and that is what i was pointing out.
i know what i fucking said.
looks like i win this round of “spot the racist”!!!
this is exciting, i love winning this game!!!
greetings my racist friend, take a seat. you’re gonna learn today.
do you know what these are?
these are olives. notice their color.
the fun thing about this color is that it CAN be applied to all sorts of people, including, as you so aptly pointed out, white people.
however, in this case, it’s not actually about white people at all. shocking, i know. it must be hard for a lot of white people to grasp the concept that not everything is about white people.
sometimes, there’s representation of other ethnicities in literature and media. it’s called diversity. it’s really a marvelous tool. it allows people to learn that there are more people in the world than blonde haired blue eyed europeans. [inb4 you go look at my about me page and cry foul because i am a blonde haired blue eyed woman of european decent, i know i am. i’m owning up to my privilege. it’s called not being a jackass, and you should try it sometime.]
my point is that katniss is olive skinned in the book not because she was written to be another version of white but because she was intended to be a representation of a minority, which happens excruciatingly rarely in any sort of media.
also, jennifer lawrence, much as i love her, is not olive skinned. at all. not even kind of.
also also, i think you may be combining olive skinned with light skinned and those two things are not the same. what you’re doing is saying olive skinned = light skinned which = white when in reality they’re three different skin tones.
olive skinned =/= light skinned =/= white.
sorry to burst your bubble, but katniss is not white.
