this is not okay
It is really, really important to understand that sanctuary is not segregation. Ok? When POC have a safe space for themselves, it is critical that you understand how different that is from segregation.
Remember, segregation was still a protected institution within living memory. Many people are still alive today who actually lived through it. Please, please remember that there are people alive now who personally saw “Whites Only” applied to everything in their lives and that challenging it meant expecting violence in return.
So, in supporting/allowing the behavior of blogs like this (and users who promote the same views) you are taking that same, pro-segregation position that should have been eradicated by our generation’s time.
I say this a teacher, as a fellow fan who (if you’re 16) has been active in fandoms since before you were born, and as white person. We have to make this fandom healthier place. And right now, that means at least voicing your disgust with racism like this. Right now, these are the loudest voices in fandom and they need to be drowned out.
If you don’t understand why the blog above is in the wrong, you are welcome to message me so that we can discuss it. I mean that honestly. I’m not going to entertain trolls, but I’ll happily have conversations with anyone who wants to better understand where this is coming from.
