I wanted to use a Native American crying gif from a movie as a reaction but realized that would be appropriation.

Stealing is wrong Dave.

I have to admit while I understand the concept and somewhat agree with this video I do believe the appropriation issue has become somewhat out of hand.

To note: I'm never like "I need a good black reaction gif for this" when I'm hunting for something, I'm looking for the best fudging reaction gif possible that I'm aware of to match the mood. If I have to stick to white-only memes from now on since I'm not black, or take pause before posting and consider if I'm posting it to be an edgy white kid, I think I'll just stop memeing.

But of course, I won't do that, because fudge that noise. Just continue to post whatever moves you that you want to share to move others, and not worry about how overtly sensitive parties looking for something to object to might view it, because life's too short to worry about people like that. Just seems like externalizing an internal issue to me.

Post any meme you like. There are valid issues appropriation dude. Memes are not one of them. Unless those memes are meant to be specifically racist. But if you want to posr rihanna gifs. Please do. Rihanna gifs are my favorite thing.

You may be onto something, I watched the Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job anniversary special and it just made me sad by the end frown

Look, appropriation exists and there are valid issues and complaints around it but unlike my peers, I think "digital blackface" is not equivalent to Jim Crow era images.

Call me crazy but I think this video has a point. In fact for a while now I've been wondering if having a black videogame character as a profile pic counts as blackface. (if you're white)

Its not. Its more of when we use caricatures of black people as gifs and memes. There are cases in which they are used to mock black folks but most of the time I find them to be benign.

We prefer "Person/People of Non-Color"

So, this Star Trek character is only halfway offensive to black people and only halfway offensive to white people! winking raspberry

P.S. "THERE...ARE...FOUR LIGHTS!!" surprise

...and you're not allowed to enjoy, understand, or use this meme unless you're either a British actor, a French Starfleet captain, or a member of Starfleet in general. wink

I don't understand. I know white people exist for everyone's amusement. Just add beer.
