I will listen to these “OMG must protect white characters from being played by brown people” riffs when I can get a Luke Cage movie. Or Black Panther complete with Wakanda. Or a period piece about the Harlem Renaissance that doesn’t focus on white people. The Policy Kings. Black Wall Street. Chinatown with actual Chinese people. Anything about Sikhs in America. Vaqueros. Or anything starring people of color interacting with their own communities as they exist instead of a collection of stereotypes that erase humanity. Can I get the history that isn’t traumatic on my screen? How about magic that isn’t done in service of white people? Can we be our own heroes without white people flipping their shit?
This is why karnythia is one of my favorite people in the worlds. All of them. See you as Wiscon, bb?
Yep, we will be there Friday.
Sweet. I will get in sometime Friday. my first panel isn’t till like 9pm? It’s the My Little Pony panel about how Bronies are why we can’t have nice things.
My first panel isn’t until Sunday. I suspect that will change though. And we’re having a Steampunk Speakeasy Sunday night!
That sounds crazy and cool. Do you need to be in costume to attend?
Nope. You do need to have ID if we don’t know you because we’re serving booze.
