I am running a Vampire game set in Hungary 1 year before the Mongolian invasion. I was wondering what other ethnicities would be present in the area?”: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.
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.

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…
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

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.
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.
You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.
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.
