The two NYPD police officers who shot & killed 16-year-old Kimani Gray will not face criminal charges. 
He was shot seven times, including three times in his back. 
Rest in power, Kimani.

[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]

So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.

I’ve posted about this before.

Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:

And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:

Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.

And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this? People have circumvented the “ignore” function by creating accounts just to send racial slurs and threats.

The rest of this is going under a cut, because it is truly horrific. Please proceed with caution.

This is really upsetting to me. This is a blogger who I have been following for a while whose main purpose is simply showcasing the existence of people of color within art and written history from medieval Europe, challenging the whitewashed history in movies and in academia that the only people in Europe at that time were white. I knew that they had been getting a lot of messed up harassment on the internet, but I didn’t know how bad it had gotten. Apparently challenging the idea of a white supremacist history (with facts and photos) as a person of color is enough to trigger extreme violence.

I would love to say that this is far away from me, but I see this happen all of the time on smaller levels around me. White people want to have people of color in their photographs, but we don’t really want to have our ideas, histories, and philosophies challenged, and we definitely do not want to be called out on our shit.

I keep seeing communities, feminists, the queer community, the trans community, leave out the folks within our community who are most likely to experience violence. In fact we often enact this violence ourselves… it’s shameful.

This makes me wonder, how can we show up and support folks better, how can we as a community get together to provide assistance through shit like this??

did she get a haircut

does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time

Wow.

Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character. 
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.

Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit

Bullshit. That little black girl is credited, in the cast list and IMDb, as Lavender Brown.
That is who Lavender was until she became more relevant, and they made her white
It is racist, stop shoving your fingers in your ears and pretending this isn’t what happened.

Naw, Harry’s eyes can be blue.
Lily’s eyes can be brown. 
Fred and George don’t really need the money to start their business. 
It’s not really important who gives Harry the gillyweed. 
Let’s make Hogwarts the only coed school in the TWT. 
Dudley Dursley doesn’t need a redemption.
It’s not really a big deal if we let Peter Pettigrew live, is it? 
Let’s have Snape be creepy with Lily’s dead body. 
DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!!!!!!!!
Let’s give Ron’s best lines to Hermione instead. 
Fuck Dumbledore’s entire back-story. 
THIS MINOR CHARACTER CAN’T BE BLACK, THOUGH. THAT WOULD JUST BE SPITTING IN THE FACE OF BOOK CANON.

The closest Rowling come to describing Lavender Brown’s race is…by not describing it. We’re supposed to assume that she’s white because we’re supposed to assume they would describe Lavender’s race if she was anything but white.

White people will move mountains to justify their totally unjustifiable inclusion in everything. Arrogant pieces of shit.

"The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books"that never happened.

120) Androgynous and masculine qualities are so prized in the genderqueer community that I feel like an outcast. I’m not even that feminine, but I hate feeling like I have to wear my hair short and dress androgynously in order to be taken seriously.

radicallyqueerandnow:

So agreed. I have the typical queer hair, but I’m non-binary and femme and I don’t see any conflict there.

I’ve seen so much femme phobia from white masculine genderqueers who think that thier identity gets them out of masculine privilege or being held accountable
