I would bet money if Mercedes looked like Alisha from Misfits a lot of her haters would be kissing the ground that she walked on, Oh and they would probably adore Samcedes and would not be using Jabba the fucking hut.
She’d still get hate; they’d just not be able to use the sizeist arguments against it.
Alisha gets tons of hate, it’s just that her fanbase is large enough to drown most of it out.
Martha just happens to be the least favorite Doc Who companion?
Cassie just happens to be the least popular Dean Winchester girlfriend?
And it has nothing to do with racism?
Lets not forget that people CHEERED when Tara died in True Blood, as well as folks calling Alisha a bitch on Misfits, Mercedes being lazy (and apparently, fat black women can never get a white man) on Glee and Uhura being ragged on for kissing Spock in Star Trek.
But it ain’t about racism tho. Despite black women in fandoms getting shit on the most, it ain’t about racism. Nope. It just ALWAYS happens to be the black woman…
No matter what Mercedes/Amber does, there is going to be a dark, miserable corner of this fandom which hates her no matter what. Which hates her just for existing. Because she’s bigger and she’s black yet she’s rich, famous, talented, gorgeous and glamorous. She’s on their favorite TV show and they are not. She gets to touch and hug Chord, Cory, Kevin, Darren, the rest of their favorites, and they do not. They think she should be below them because she’s a plus size woman of color, but she’s on top of the fucking world right now. Millions of people admire her. Important people. Adele. THE PRESIDENT. And while they’re biting back the bitter bile of their tears, fapping to pictures of the other cast mates, those same cast mates are calling up Amber telling her what an awesome job she did on her performance.
So they can stay mad.
kum is still endgame btw
Aww, you think that, dear. I’m not even mad. But know that RIB pretty much is going with that whole Samcedes thang. END. GAME.
I cannot. I CANNOT.
SAM LIKES PUSSY! GET THE FUCK OVER IT.
Oh, there will be “kum”, when Mercedes finally gets to lose her virginity and stop being desexualized on the show. I’m sure Sam will give her all of the “kum” she can take.
DAMN! DID SHE GO THERE?!
SHE. WENT. THERE.
Y’all done made Mikka the most reckless tonight. But anyway, she’s right. lololol
Y’all are clowning tonight. Love it.
