To be fair here, part of the fun of historical RPGs and fantasy is to change as little as possible and watch the effect of the fantastic premise on the setting.

I honestly think they’re asking a question relating to what PoC groups were living in the area at the time. Just because it has a supernatural element doesn’t mean it can’t have accuracy. As a writer, that’s one thing I strive for personally.

I think they’re asking what sort of ethnicities were present in Hungary at that time. Not to be rude, but it’s a reasonable question and I’m not sure why you brushed it off. Vampires are fantasy, but the setting could still be historically accurate.

tranettew reblogged your post justcuriousabout said:Hi, I am v… and added:

That’s unnecessary shade. The whole blog is about historically accurate representation of PoC in history and, ergo, it is not an excuse to be non-inclusive in media as there were PoC in Europe at different points in history. This ask is essentially what you’re trying to promote, I thought.

  • Question: I'm a white girl in state college. I went dressed as Jim Crow to a "Famous Birds" party. Black paint and all. Was that racist? Offensive, maybe, to most. But, racist? - Anonymous

    yoisthisracist:

    You fucking asshole, what the fuck semantic game do you think you’re playing that you think you can differentiate between your racially “offensive” costume and a racist costume? Is that the best you fucking got, you fucking racist idiot?

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

Will Darren Wilson ever be arrested?

Arrested, yes. Convicted, probably not. Not with all the money racists are willing to donate for his legal fund.

For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

god I remember feeling so angry, saying horrible things, thinking horrible things

thank goodness there was no Facebook or Twitter to immortalize my behavior post-9/11, I’d be humiliated.

if you’re reading this and you’re still mad at Muslims, you’ve got to let that go. Their existence is not an affront to your feelings. They get to live and pray just like everybody else.

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

Autopsy and video show John Crawford shot from behind in Wal-Mart

Witness in murder of John Crawford changes story

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Follow @shaunking

in a way the Crawford shooting added fuel to the fire of the Mike Brown shooting, their closeness on the calendar making it painfully obvious that yes, cops treat black people differently. I hope that Crawford’s killers are held accountable for their negligence.

  • Question: Yo, I get the impression that black culture tends to be judged by it's low points, while anything else is judged by the high ones. Like, I get that 90% of rap is shit, but the same is true for any other style of music (100% for country), yet nobody's complaining about Coldplay being horrendously woeful. It's like people expect every black artist to be a reincarnation of Biggie Smalls and Jimi Hendrix and then act surprised when that's obviously not the case. - Anonymous
