Slavery was never completely abolished and people are being enslaved “as punishment for crimes”.. and cities and schools are as segregated as ever.

WHAT A BRILLIANT STORY
Pretty sure everybody that’s not a gross biased evan peters fan saw that Elsa sent her there so the freaks could rape her, and then the next morning when she staggered out of the tent crying she made her watch the video they filmed of her being raped where you can clearly see in her eyes she was out of it, she then shamed her for being raped, and forced her to think she enjoyed it and that’s pretty much what happened. You know you’re wrong which is why you’re on anon so what you need to do is get a grip, get a life, and get over it, there’s no further discussion.
The East Asian women + colored hair trope
(An extension of extraextraex’s post.)
Looking at the pictures above, it’s pretty easy to find the similarities. East Asian women with dyed purple/blue/red hair, usually in a streak. No matter how you look at this, this is an uncomfortably specific trend in media. Yeah, it looks cute, but after seeing this over and over again, it becomes a boring, racist trope. This originated from a variety of possibilities: the creators trying to “Americanize” the East Asian character, make them more “exotic”, or to show how unique this character is. She’s not a giggling schoolgirl or a delicate lotus flower, she’s different! See, she has a streak of purple hair (god forbid she dyes it any other color), look how radical that is, look at our modern Dragon Lady!
And yes, Knives dyed her hair to look like Ramona, and yes, Sonmi-451’s hair is like that to mark her as a clone, but these characters do not exist in a vacuum. You can justify why a character has a specific appearance, but in the end, this character was created, and contributes to stereotypes no matter the intent.
So the moral of this story is that your Asian character with a strip of purple hair isn’t original. It isn’t unique. No matter how innocent this appears to be, it can be detrimental to East Asian girls, since the characters that look like them have the same exact traits. It’s time to explore different ways of designing East Asian characters, instead of just slapping on some purple and calling it a day.
Wow I never knew that every anime ever was secretly super racist against Asians
literally what the fuck are you talking about/trying to imply
Literally 99% of anime has characters with “exotic” hair. Just because it’s an over used or popular “trope” doesn’t mean there is anything sinister/oppressive/racist about it.
Hair color has been Hollywood’s lazy way of showing that a character is edgy or an individual without having to bother with character development. It’s used with every race and gender.
Just to clarify: Hair dye = not racist just lazy.
uhm but 99% of anime doesn’t have characters with dyed hair?? also it’s not saying weird hair or even hair colour in general. it’s literally super specifically the pink/purple streak.
also this isn’t talking about anime? this is talking about western media’s portrayal of Asian women which is, definitely, 100%, racist as fuck.
like did you even read the comment or do you just wanna shove your dumb ass opinion in where ever you can? just because you walk around denying racism doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
no one is saying hair dye = racist.
they’re saying this trope. is detrimental to Asian women. because it sets certain standards that they have to meet and if they don’t meet them, they’re ostracized further from a very very white society that already treats them like crap. this trope. is racist.
you are racist for trying to speak over the voices of women of colour, in this case specifically the voices of East Asian women, who are trying to tell you that this is racism. This is harmful. This. Is. Not. Okay. And you’re trying insert your shitty racist opinion where it frankly is not wanted.
like. just fucking think man. I’m sure you’re capable of being a decent human being. just fucking think about what’s being said instead of just being so quick to deny racism cause it makes you uncomfortable. your discomfort is nothing compared to what people of colour and women of colour especially face. absolutely nothing. so do better. please.
