I want to draw attention to an internet campaign I ran into somewhere on Tumblr. As best I can figure, it originated here, but Tumblr is a strange and vast place and I can’t guarantee that’s true.
There is more about this topic at Native Appropriations. Before anyone tries to tell me that “this sort of thing is all in good fun and isn’t as important as XYZ issue,” stop and think for a minute. Racism, like classism, sexism, ableism, ageism, heterenormativity, and other assorted bigotries has everything to do with seemingly innocuous things like stupid costumes and ethnic jokes, because innocuous things normalize those bigotries.
Think before you put on a racist costume like this. Even if you’re 100% pro-racism, do you really want to look like a moron? Because you will.
