Just a quick question about what's going on. I'm late to the party and want to know, why it's a thing now. Why is putting darker make up on racist all of a sudden?
>>
Why the fuck are people killing legitimate threads with all this bullshit lately?
>>
>>8666312
For starters it never looks good. The white girls "Vivienne make up test" is some of the worst makeup I've ever seen, regardless of how you feel about her doing it politically. She didn't make herself look anything like Vivienne, she just globbed dark makeup on.

When you try to change your race with your makeup, one of two things happens:

1) Like the girl above, you think [black character's look] is nothing but their skin tone. You don't have do anything like contorting or duplicating their eye makeup or lip tone, cause black people are just a skin tone. Heck, don't even duplicate the exact tone, just be dark.

2) So let's say you go all out and start changing your whole face. You get a nose prosthetic and give the illusion of a new cheek and jaw structure. You get the color just right and look like a black person. Well you've now put on a bunch of features that people are getting mocked, harassed, assaulted and murdered over. And if you want to stop that treatment, all you have to do is shower.

Photographers in fashion have been known to paint their white models instead of getting black ones because they get to have contrast without having to have "ugly" black features in their shoot.

When people argue that this kind of cosplay is okay, they generally say stuff like "stop complaining you dumb n*****s" which directly translates to "we want to look like you (temporarily, for fun) without having to respect you."

Not included in the people I'm criticizing: Cosplayers who get a tan or put on some bronzer. There's nothing wrong with going out in the natural darkest shade your skin can get, and people who get up in arms about it are stupid.

HI seagulls, brown person here.

Do you know how many non white characters there are in the media?

Do you really need to dress up as a black character when you have like 99% of all characters to *not* be a racist with? Jesus fuck. Dress up as Asami. Or maybe don't shit up whatever con you're going to with your presence.

If you legitimately, sincerely can't see whats wrong with blackface, i apologize for my combative tone but you are literally the personification of privilege. No matter how tasteful you're being, this is what you'll end up portraying.
>>
>>8666354
>"If you legitimately, sincerely can't see whats wrong with blackface, i apologize for my combative tone but you are literally the personification of privilege." I'm white but I don't get how people don't see this? If you could honestly sit there in front of a mirror and paint yourself black or brown and not feel like "hm, this feels a bit wrong" there's something wrong with you.

OP here.
Very valid points. Thanks for replying.

I forgot to add that I'm black myself. But I'm not afro-american.

1) She's really inaccurate with the tone. I don't know her and would have to look into her background to judge if she was just lazy or really not thinking about skin features. But all in all I don't think it's too bad. I kinda still appreciate her trying.

2) With how things are going down in the US and people treat black people, I really understand how some people get offended.
And I have to admit, what photographers in fashion do pisses me off.

But almost everyone of my white cosplayfriends paints their skin dark for cosplay sometimes, as well as I try to get my skin lighter, too.
I don't feel like "Hey we want to look like you". It's more like "We want to look like character X from Y", who mostly has dark skin in anime when they decide to portray him/her and paint their body. Also most anime fail to portray facial features as well. So I never got the idea that they disrepect my skintone and culture.
But that's just my friends. Don't know how others think of it and will have to do some research with your words in mind.

So I get it, but still I can't relate to it when I think about cosplay in my country.

Thanks for giving me an honest and constructive answer to work with.
>>
>>8666373
...what characters are they cosplaying? Are there even that many dark characters? Or do you have 2 friends who are obsessed with cosplaying dark characters? Because that's kinda fucked up.
>>
One of the famous examples is Korra (3-4 did her). Other characters I didn't know because I wasn't cosplaying with them and didn't bother to ask. Just saw the reference pictures in their galery. They mostly cosplay white characters but not only.
>>
>>8666354
So white people are not allowed to cosplay certain characters just because they happen to have different skintone, or they have to sacrifice accuracy so they wouldn't be "racist".

I don't like the mentality that "you are not allowed to cosplay x" especially since it's about something people are born with.
Cosplaying is about portaying a certain character, not a group of people. It's also almost never done in a mocking tone which actual black-facing is.

Blackfacing is wrong, but cosplay isn't blackface. It's being accurate and true to the character.

People in general should be allowed to cosplay anyone and anything they like.

And what her skin is actually like

50% of this girls cosplay include this shit. But no one has called her up on it.
The quality of the paint job if offensive enough.
>>
In my opinion I think people can just cosplay the character without changing skin tones etc because most anime characters are supposed to be asian no? Yet people won't run around with their eyes taped weirdly or their skin tones changed for that so I don't know why people have to paint themselves black unless they're scared of being inaccurate which I would personally rather be than racist and getting attacked by tumblr
>>
>>8666354
It's not blackface though, who in cosplay actually dresses like a gollywog or a minstrel? I am brown and I legitimately couldn't give a flying fuck if someone of a non brown or black race wants to go all out in order to recreate the image OF A FICTIONAL FUCKING CHARACTER. So what if there are more white skinned characters they can cosplay from? How is that relevant? The individual may just really like a brown character for whatever reason and cosplay is basically an exercise in escapism, so pretending to be a brown person is not that a great a stretch from pretending to be Japanese person (some of which are very tan in and out of anime). It's like saying well Japanese people suffered having atomic bombs dropped on them, don't dare cosplay a Japanese animu character as you do not know the suffering they went through. Seriously just leave your political over sensitive racial bullshit out of this hobby.
>>
>>8666391
Is that supposed to be a good example? Because that skin tone doesn't suit her at all.
>>
Changing your skintone to match that of the character isn't racist at all. The problem is that changing it to a different color is associated with mockery.
I see this is mostly reserved for white cosplayers. Theres that one really popular asian kid who does makeup to look like celebrities and no ones pulling the racist card. Instead he is artistic and skilled.
>>8666354
Why should they have to dress up as Asami because they're white? If they want to cosplay a black character let them.
>>
>>8666391
Didn't even bother to paint her hands.

>>8666388
OP here.

Your opinion is what I've read the past years about this topic. Cosplay =/= black-/red-/yellowfacing.
That's why I was surprised what's going on now.
>>
>>8666388
People will recognize a well-done costume just fine without the race-painting
See white Storms, white Korras, white Isabelas, etc

White Mako Mori cosplayers don't have to tape their eyes in her eye shape to have an "accurate costume" so no one has to paint themselves brown either

This.
>>
>>8666406

Seriously. If your cosplay is good enough, you shouldn't need to black/red/yellow up.

But that's not gonna stop white people declaring "I DON'T THINK THIS IS RACIST BECAUSE" while anyone who isn't white is cringing themselves inside out.

"In the United States, blackface was used as part of Minstrel Shows, which is basically a comedy show where the only joke was basically "Wow, black people sure are stupid!" As you can imagine, incredibly fucking offensive. Blackface was also used on stage or screen so that a show could have black characters, without having to actually, you know, hire black people. The white actors would then usually play up negative black stereotypes in the process.

So there is a lot of history of blackface being used as a method of mocking black people. But, hey, that's just history. Why would it be offensive today?

>>8666388

Your point that you wouldn't be offended by a black person in "whiteface", or that it is the same as dressing as an asian, is what we might call 'false equivalency'; within a larger cultural context, it isn't the same thing. There are several reasons for this.

The first and most straightforward is that the mentality of the ministrel show hasn't disappeared. A lot of people who wear blackface in their costumes for Halloween or whatever use it as an excuse to make fun of black people, so people are wary of it. But that doesn't make in intrinsically racist, right?

Well, no, nothing is "intrinsically" anything when talking about race, because race isn't skin deep. You appear to believe in a sort of colourblind mentality towards race, in that it doesn't matter at all what race you are. Well, race is kind of an absurd concept because humans pretty much just made it up, but humans also just sort of made up things like governments, laws and economies, which are also important and "real" things.

>>
Isn't black-face about mocking and being cruel while cosplaying is about glorifying and adoration?

Argument over.
>>
>>8666420
To white folks like you, this often doesn't make a lot of sense; you were taught as kids that race doesn't matter. But it's very easy to say that something that rarely seems to affect you doesn't matter; your race as white people is seen by society as default, your experiences as normal. Your stories get to be the ones that get retold and remembered, and we retell and remember them quite frequently. It's like saying it doesn't matter who wins or loses, after collecting the trophy and the prize money.

So something like whiteface doesn't affect you; it's just skin tone, after all. It's also why, as Americans who are very disconnected, often by generations, from our European ancestors, you often don't give a shit about those stereotypes either.

If you are a person of colour in America, it is impossible not to notice race. Even if you've never been subject to malicious racism, you know that you are perceived as an outsider to the dominant culture. Even if you didn't want to care about race, race has been made important for you, personally. You've experienced a lot of shit you know is basically invisible to white people because of "just" your skin tone."
>>
>>8666409
It's not your place to brush off an issue as being overly sensitive when you aren't the person being affected.
>>
Don't quite understand why "IT'S FOR COSPLAY SO IT'S OKAY!" is considered a decent excuse. People like to put cosplay into this special bubble.

Stores that sell facepaints to make yourself look indian/chinese/black during halloween are critiqued and shamed but apparently doing it yourself for cosplay is fine because "I like the character and cosplay is artistic!"
>>

>>8666425
It's because cosplay is admiration for the character. Blackface is mocking.
>>
>>8666332
>For starters it never looks good
Boom, end of post. It looks awful. You end up with this brown skin but none of the corresponding features. People who do this just look so god damn BAD at the end of it. We don't have to have a debate about whether the accuracy is worth the political shitstorm, because it's not even accurate in the end. It's ugly.
>>
>>8666354
>there are so many other white characters out there, so stop liking the colored ones! Go like the white ones instead! DON'T LIKE WHAT YOU LIKE BECAUSE I TELL YOU SO!

Because obviously there is no reason why people spend money and work on a costume, it's not because they like them or anything.
>>
>>8666447
Go to the Facebook page of the white woman doing blackface for Vivienne and you'll see hundreds of black women who don't feel "admired"
>>
>>8666447
Admiration? So.. I can paint my face brown for Halloween too right? Because I'm admiring the character I'm dressing as? Or how about for an afro-Caribbean culture festival? Clearly I'm just admiring their culture so I can paint my skin right?

No. Just because you admire something does not mean you should try to replicate it. If this thread had been "can I tape my eyes to look asian because I admire the character" no one would be supporting it.

Ok, just for clarification, putting on bronzer or tanning for a cosplay is ok, right? But painting yourself brown like idk...Rufflebutt did with her Anthy is wrong? Because I find the former kind of tacky, but I've tanned or put on bronzer for some cosplay, just because the character is more tan than my natural skin tone. Am I not allowed to do that anymore? I don't find anything wrong with tanning or something. An example would be, when I cosplayed Amy two years ago, I went tanning before the con because she has s tan. I also cosplayed Keiko from YYH that weekend, and she is asian but I'm not.

I don't really understand....I think people are being too sensitive over it.
Cosplayers, change their hair, contour their faces to mimic a characters, I've even heard of people taping their eyes to acheave a certain look.
And yet why is dark make up suddenly taboo?
Would it be the same if a black person used super pale make up?

I feel like the whole "it's blackface" argument is invalid.
Blackface was used to mock African Americans. It was supposed to turn them into a jester essentially. It exaggerated the typical features into something ridiculous that people can laugh at.
The above is not okay, but it's also not what Cosplayers are doing.

Cosplayers aren't putting on dark make up to make fun of black people. They're trying to emulate a character that has a darker skin tone. If anything, that's the exact opposite of the intention behind blackface.

You're welcome to think it just looks bad though. That's totally valid. But don't call people racists if they are doing literally nothing but liking a character

So much this. It's Americans with their historical links and current SJW obsession with calling everything skin tone related 'blackface'. Blackface this blackface that. The entire cosplay community isn't America or based there and rest of us shouldn't have to make our cosplay decisions based on their shitty historical treatment of blacks.
The act of making your skin look darker to dress up us a fictional character is categorically not inherently racist (by this logic all white people donning fake tans a la Geordie/Jersey Shore etc are racists) , all these people throwing the word racist around so casually need to study harder during their English lessons to improve basic literacy comprehension:
racist
noun
1.a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
synonyms: racial bigot, racialist, xenophobe, chauvinist;
antonyms: multicultural, tolerant
adjective: racist
1.having or showing the belief that a particular race is superior to another.

If said person making up their skin to be darker can be described as any of the above then they are racist, if not then they aren't. How hard is that to understand?
>>
race is not a costume.
just wear the actual costume part (outfit, wig, etc.).
if you truly think the only way to identify a character is by looking at their race and not the rest of their design, you should probably work on that.

This was very well constructed and informative.

My point wasn't that "I wouldn't be offended by whitefacing so suck it up" though, but that's way besides the point.

Thanks for clearing this up. This is such a complicated issue since when talking about rasism, it seems like intentions don't matter. Or well, they do matter because of bad intentions created this whole problem to begin with.

Sorry for rambling, but basically I understand your point and I'm glad you took time to explain it.

I'm brown, fuck everyone else. Brown yourself up. I'm cool with it. They can suck a dick. You are cosplaying, not making a rally to remove minorities from subway's and panda expresses near every convention in the US.

If you want to cosplay Korra, do it. If you want to brown it up to do it, do it. I'll do some firebending crap shots with you. Fuck the haters and the triggered bitches.

I am a person of race in America. I find your inherent belief that I am thin skinned and unable to handle differing skin tones racist. You do not speak for the entirety of American minorities.

Neither do you. If you want to discuss this with other non-white people you can, but you don't get to give white people permission to do things that other minorities are asking them not to.

Honestly I base my feeling on this and other racial subjects on the writings of people who are confirmed as black. Anons on 4chan and tumblr love to lie about being a minority so they can say what they want to hear. I could also bury you all in writing from black scholars and activists that not only condemns this kind of behavior, but cites studies that back up their points. The OMG it's harmless" argument does hold up in actual studies.

If you stopped labeling everyone not like you as something before you even talk to them, maybe you wouldn't see racism in everything around you. Like fucking racist do all the time. You are a problem to me as much as KKK fucktards are, You are a racist bigot. Just because they are white doesn't mean you get free pass to judge their actions on your biased subjective viewpoints. They are human too. Do you have one shred of evidence showing on of these racist blackface cosplayers making racial remarks about a subset of humans based on their skin color? Cosplay communities are some of the most inclusive people I have ever met in my life and I find it hard to believe you have a magical book of instances where cosplayers are being racist? It just doesn't make any rhyme of reason. You are looking for a racist problem where none even exists. You are making racists, no one else is.

Inclusive doesn't mean they aren't backstabbing you over the latest lolita fashion trend anon. It just means anybody can get into it, become part of it if they put the work in. The work is the key. Can you honestly say someone trying to get into cosplay is automatically dismissed for their skin color? They get the chance to do what they love regardless of their skin color. Because for the most part except for some sensitive fucks out there, no one gives a crap if you aren't pasty white or akon black. We all got a chance to be garnet, even if we have a dick. We just better do it right or people will talk shit.

Maybe just maybe the black people don't want to cosplay fucking Garnet. Maybe the white kid that grew up and loves SU wants to be Garnet because he identifies with the character and loves his Garnet plushie at home. Who are you to judge his actions? I'm brown and everything I cosplay is lilly white because for some reason anime heroes are pasty white femboys. What do I do? I suck it up, hide in the shadows, lose as much color as I can and try my best. It's hard to white yourself up without looking like some weird albino. I have much props for someone that can darken themselves up and deal with that stage makeup all over themselves as they try to keep it from smearing, sealing and just looking a hot mess. They usually fail but somebody will do it right, unless we stifle everything by saying "nooooo you can't do that you are a white boi". That's divisive. Let them do.

Here's what I don't understand...

In asia, asians are the default and you will see pictures of asians advertised in products.
It's the same with every other country, typically whoever is not the minority is the bigger media audience for product consumption. That being said, America still goes to lengths to include a variety of models within products and they're literally the only country that does this. I feel like people like to preach that America is this horrible racist place, but I have never seen anybody act racist other than my dying grandparents and I live in between the worst parts of florida and alabama.

When you're not white in our country, you get a variety of handouts. You can get more scholarships. You have better chances of being accepted into certain schools for minority percentage value and companies are always looking to hire people who aren't white because it looks good. I've desperately wanted to empathize and understand this, so I've asked the feelings of my normy non-white friends and they tell me other than random children calling them "chocolate" once, they function like a normal human being and face the same amount of discrimination any normal person would for anything else. The only black people I've ever talked to who passionately care about this to these lengths are cosplayers and people from tumblr. Any normal person realizes they can get their degree like normal, get a job, etc.

Some will say "people say I can't cosplay this because I'm black!"
Well, people would say shit like that even if you weren't black. They'd say your nose is too big, you're not thin enough, etc. People will always act conniving and vicious no matter what race or gender you are. Being white doesn't mean your life is an easy walk in the park, yet that's what people from tumblr like to preach and I genuinely don't understand it.

So. Assuming your point concerning lying about your race is valid, how can we confirm you're actually a representative of a racial minority? You might just as well be a white-passing tumblrina with 0,05% black blood trying to scrape up some kind of "ethnicity" to feel special.

I don't even get why the oversensitive tumblrinas are always supposed to get the last word on every issue. What about all the PoC people who don't give a shit about white folks bronzing their skin for a cosplay? Why doesn't their opinion matter? I'm a female who supported Gamergate and the SJW people trying to silence me were just as bad as the misogynistic dudebros sending rape threats. They both try to invalidate my individual existence just because I didn't serve their selfish agenda. The PoC people who aren't offended by tanning your skin for a cosplay are just as much of a reliable source as every other representative of their ethnicity.

The argument about "wearing our skin as a costume" is invalid. They're not wearing your skin as a costume, they're wearing a character as a costume. Dressing up as a certain dark-skinned character and staying accurate to the source material is a lot different than putting on a reed skirt, a bone through an afro wig and painting your skin black for a costume party to look "African".

And "there are plenty of white characters for white folks to cosplay, they're stealing our characters". Excuse me? How does a white-skinned person cosplaying a character actually stop you from cosplaying the character yourself? You'll probably do a better job too if you match the skin colour of the character naturally, so if anything, you should be proud of looking better by comparison.

This whole debate is a living proof of the horseshoe theory. SJWs are so far up against all discrimination they're starting to look like /pol/, just replace jews in their rants with white people and reverse the worries of blacks invading the white culture and there you go.

I can see this from a historical viewpoint.

Say two children are born, one is black and one is white in America today.

The black child grows up in a rich household, is given every opportunity for every hobby and succeeds in life and is pretty much able to land a successful place in a company.

White child grows up with parents that beat them everyday, no financial assistance and later resort to prostitution as they live in a shoddy apartment.

Would they still have that magical white privilege that lands them above persona A? I genuinely want to know.

That's a really interesting question, since the background and upbringing would change much of the usual effects like education on a child. In your example, person B would still be statistically more likely to be poorer and less educated than person A despite being white.

Personally i believe discrimination is based on, and a result of socio economic status more than race, but it is the unfortunate case that the two are intricately entwined the world today. White privilege doesn't mean that all white people are better off than all black people, it just means, at its most basic, that the average black person is worse off than the average white person. I hope i've addressed your question, apologies if my meaning is unclear, my writing is convoluted at the best of times and its quite late where i live.

No, it's very clear, thank you. I can see where it is very difficult for families to break out of that poverty line and succeed unless a child that is born happens to be a prodigy.

Me being super white, I've personally experienced a lot of fucked up shit that has negatively impacted where I am now. Yet, I've been told by many POC that I have this magical privilege that's going to make everything better and that what I've experienced during my schooling was "not racism". Meanwhile, the people telling me this have two parents, a house and go to a university.

Why can't we all just acknowledge each other's individual experiences and try to put them all on the same level? Cruelty is cruelty and it comes in a million different forms. The same fucked up people who hate somebody for their skin tone are the same fucked up people who steal and set somebody's house on fire. Can't we just acknowledge that not every bad incident is about race?

It's very important to acknowledge factors other than race, as a statistician, trying to explain something so incredibly complex with a single variable would just be nonsense.

Ok so it's racist to change your skin colour? And/or it's racist to change your skin colour to match another race? Home stuck troll cosplays are officially racist guys we did it, Steven universe too.

Honestly, if you look deep down, you know it's wrong.

People don't do it because the vast majority of the population can neither agree whether using make up to achieve the skin colour of a /specific character/ is either out-right racist or any different from using make up to imitate a /race/ or caricature there of, nor agree that it is massively subject to opinion and that no one can speak for an entire race so cannot differentiate between the appropriate uses of the following phrases, 'this is offensive' and 'I find this offensive because'.

Because either we're working towards a society where skin colour (amongst other traits) dictates nothing or we're just pretending we are whilst exploiting opportunities to play the race card.

One thing I notice in this thread is the argument of "whites being offensive as the majority race". You guys do realise that in actual fact Asians are the majority race? and Japanese are very for painting their skin dark for characters. I'm surprised the Sakura from the Dangan Ronpa shoot is never posted here as racist.

I once got told I should be ashamed for wanting to dress as a Gijinka of a lion character because I was going to offend Africans. The character in question was in actual fact close to my naturally tanned skin in colour. I didn't even say I was changing my skin; yet the whitest of white bread race shamed me out of it. My African friend on the other hand wants me to do it since I love the character.

Not necessarily though I'm sure there are some.

But really the point is that imitating a specific character different is cosplay, however you choose to interpret the brief, change in skin tone or no.

Parodying an entire race or caricature there of is the fundamentals of black facing.

The two are not fundamentally the same thing. But the term Black Facing is being flung around like they are.

So if I'm a "yellow person" (since you put an awful lot of stock into skin color) I can blackface all I want, right? Because blackface is associated with oppression of blacks by whitey, and I ain't white.
>>
ITT: a whole lot of white people typing "as a brown person..."
>>
Im going to throw my two cents into this.

Blackface isn't the same as painting yourself with makeup with the intent to do a character in cosplay justice because you want to be accurate. With all the talk lately about how black people and other minorities want to put the past behind them, but still keep in mind what has happened, but move forward as a society, a lot of you are reeeeeeally not letting people. Half the people screaming about this 'blackface' thing have no idea what it actually is and how it effected entertainment and individuals.

You can't preach about wanting a better and accepting society, but feel free to throw white people or other races under the bus any time you feel you have the audacity to misuse the so called 'race card' and throw 'racist' around like it were candy on individuals who aren't. You aren't deserved of recommendations after all these years. The tumblr warriors need to sit their asses down and really understand what they want out of their generation because, frankly, its not helping your black movement at all and instead stifling it.

If you want racism to stop them stop calling everything single thing racist when there is no racist intent just to make your ego feel good.

Not really. Even when I tan (I'm Asian) there's only a certain shade I darken to. My cousins are multiple shades darker, tanned or not.

I was only pointing out that anime white people look way different than the anime characters people like to assume are "supposed to be" white. You can always tell when an anime character is supposed to be white compared to everyone else because they'll be blonde haired and blue eyed and (if male) have strong features.

Also if you desperately want to change your skin color, go for it, but you'll probably get mobbed by angry SJWs from tumblr. I think it basically always looks bad/tacky, and it's about as practical as being a Homestuck - you're going to smear makeup everywhere. Call it accurate all you want, it looks like you're caked in makeup rather than looking more like the character.

>>8667306
It's is fundamentally impossible to go through life without offending people.

You'd be naive to think otherwise.

But there's a difference between something that is factually offensive and something that is personally offensive based on individual opinion.

It's not universally agreed whether imitating a characters skin colour is one or the other.
>>
>>8666934
And if she went as a white Guinevere, people would just be pissed off at them going by the old stories and not acknowledging the wonderful black actress they got for the show.
>>
>>8667338
Nothing is going to universally agreed on, but enough people find it troublesome, it'd be worth avoiding it.
You don't need to darken your skin with make-up / body paint to cosplay a character well.
>>
>>8667340
And we reach a circular argument where racially accurate cosplayers should have the monopoly on characters sharing their race.

Which is a fundamentally racist principle.

So it seems if you change your skin colour to match a character, you're racist.

If you cosplay outside your skin colour, you're racist.
>>
>>8667338
It's perfectly possible to go through life without painting your face brown or black. When you do that, you choose to offend.
>>
>>8667352
You don't need to wear a wig. You don't need to make your own cosplay. You don't need a lot of things.

But without every single person (of every race) voting on the matter there's no basis for statements like 'enough people find it troublesome'.

Because how can you define enough?

If every minority opinion agreed it was offensive it might hold more weight than the number of 'POC' opinions where they either don't care or don't think it's racist.

So surely making a bulk opinion is fundamentally racist that ignores someone.

Therefore it can be stated that the whole thing is entirely a matter of personal opinion.

And the principle of 'don't like, don't look' then applies?
>>
>>8667358
Actually what you're choosing to do is portray a character. However you'll probably have to acknowledge that it's going to offend someone.

But then I know people who think they own certain characters. It offends them if I cosplay those characters. But that's not why I'm doing it.

Therefore the principle argument of 'don't do it because it might offend someone' appears to be more limiting than liberating.
>>
>>8667340
>>8667354

I don't know, I'm sure there's people that would take offense to cosplaying outside your race, but I think a lot of the SJWs that hop all over changing your skin color would be cool with it.
After all, it doesn't take away representation or anything because if a white girl cosplays Korra, for example, that doesn't stop say, a native american girl from cosplaying Korra at the same con.
>>
>>8667363
The thing you have to ask yourself is, is the fun you get from painting your face dark worth making people feel bad?
>>
>>8667358
Everything you do can and probably will offend people.

You can go your entire life without having a pet dog, so you adopting one is you choosing to offend Muslims.

Every action will offend somebody, so it becomes a question of how offensive it is versus how useful it is.

Your argument does not stand, whether or not it is racist.
>>
>>8667378
By extension I'd also have to ask myself 'would cosplaying this character because I want to, despite knowing it will upset them, be worth it to me?'.

To which the answering question is, 'why should I limit what I do, because X person/s will get upset if I do?'

From which we could make a significant jump and re-word that to 'should I not wear this short skirt because I know it might excite some guys'.

Where the question becomes about the acknowledgement of consequences.

But the question is, should there be any.

If we're working towards a society where creed, colour and name don't matter, then there shouldn't be.

If we're not, then can someone let me know when the eggshells everyone is stepping on have been swept up and we can all get on with our lives?
>>
What amazes me to this day with regards to use of the term 'black facing' is that cosplayers who try to match natural skin tones are called offensive, but people who cosplay Mr Popo are seen as funny.

Mr Popo who is literally the walking stereotype of the look of black facing. Who is more often than otherwise cosplayed by black people.

This is somewhat shooting the argument in the proverbial foot?

This is what really gets me, all the people claiming "it takes two to tango!" are completely ignoring the fact that these girls didn't know how to fucking tango, so to speak. You don't magically gain knowledge about consent, appropriateness, and predators on your 18th birthday. If someone takes advantage of a person's naïveté, lies to them about their reasons and motivations, then you cannot reasonably expect a young woman to instinctively know that she's being duped.

Come on gulls, think back to when you were aged 17-19. A lot of us were likely awkward and dorky and not used to having encouraging/positive attention from someone we viewed as cool. He knows young women are vulnerable like that and took total advantage of it.

Some SJW actually came up to us and ranted at me about how dare I cosplay Asami when she is an asian character, and I am white. My gf is brown skinned so she was cool to cosplay Korra. I just stood there kind of baffled while my girlfriend told the chick to fuck off. Ironically, this girl was cosplaying from Dangan Ronpa and was white so what even?

But seriously, was I not allowed to cosplay Asami because she's asian or whatever? Is that a thing now? We just wanted to couple cosplay

I don't understand why anyone would want to paint their skin darker for a costume. It always looks so bad. Even when it's applied correctly, it still looks off. As long as you put a lot of effort your costume, people will know who you're cosplaying especially if it's a well known character.
>b-but the SJWs will bully me!

When the fuck did they say any of that. You are literally trying to create a caricature of this person out of nothing other than them not agreeing with you and not going along with whatever . You threaten them with exclusion, you sling insults, on top of all of that you are being racist as shit. Breaking race into these little exclusionary clubs based off of the fucking culturally butthurt Olympics ( Which btw, every race has been enslaved by basically everyone at some point or another. But you don't want to study that do you?) is only alienating yourselves and doing the exact opposite of what you say you want. The only way we will be bale to have an intelligent discussion on the historical oppression of any and all peoples will be when all parties involved can openly learn the victories and atrocities of every race.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_the_British_Isles
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_in_Africa

Heres some links since you can be bothered with the most basic of fact finding.

And you know what, history sucks. People suck. Everyone fucking sucks and have sucked majorly at some point in time and been huge dicks to themselves and others for fucked up reasons. And you know what would be a good idea for the future. Look at what they did, figure out how they did it, ask why, discuss this with others, learn from it, AND MOVE THE FUCK ON. Continuing to aggressively fight non issues will only distract you from and devalue actual acts of hatred. How many sons and daughters have to pay for the their fathers sins. The whole world is in debt, you are only selectively collecting the dues. Don't keep using the same tactics as the people you say you hate. Just because you label it as something different doesn't mean that it is. Its still bullying and manipulation, just by the 'right' people. According to you at least.

Perhaps you don't know but in Latin countries we don't treat skin color as you Americans do.
We don't give a shit about "race" because we are all one race: latins. Latins are so deeply mixed that we all have black/white/asian/middle-eastern/whatever genes; basically, everyone here is mixed so skin color isn't a matter of race but of genetic luck.
My mother is "white" because she is pale as fk but she's still mixed. It's how it works here. The middle point is tan skin and brown hair so anyone above that is "white" (I'm light tan almost yellow, but still tan and I get called "white"). Anyone with light brown hair or above is "blond". Anyone with dark-skin is "black" even if they don't have immediate black relatives. So yes, that cosplayer happens to be very very light-skinned, just like my mother, so she is considered white and, because the beauty concept says tan skin is prettier, light-skin people like her tend to get teased about it.
When I did swimming as a kid, I used to be a lot more tan so I was called "black". Now people tell me I'm white, even though I'm not compared to someone like my mother.
So no, she is Latin, not "white" as you imply. Your "white" is different from ours.
>>
>>8667004
Yeah, it's common in Latin countries to celebrate our cultural heritage in festivals where we paint our faces "black" or "white". It's really frikin fun :D In my country, if you don't want to participate you are suggested not to leave your house since if anybody sees you outside without paint on, they WILL paint you or throw flour on you to make you white, it's how it is.
What makes me mad about this whole deal is how arrogant American people are to think they can dictate how the whole world behaves. Oh, your country has a history with blackface? Cool. Nobody in the rest of the world gives a fuck about it. What makes you think your blackface history trumps our Carnaval de negros y blancos history? Blackface doesn't exist anymore, the festivals are held yearly so no, I don't see how my culture should accomodate to your unfounded sensitivities. Leave non-American cosplayers out of it.

This thread reminds me a lot of the UCLA outlash for the "Kayne West" party. A bunch of people wore clothes to similar to West and put on fake facial hair to mimic Kayne. Then, the Niggers United Union got wind of it and went to crash the party.

Then after that, some girl wrote an article saying that the party wasn't racist and the union should focus on real issues, so some other students dug up her name, released it everywhere, and are demanding she drop out of UCLA because she brought shame to the school.

Except everyone knows the guy is at fault. It's blantantly obvious what he did was horrible and disgusting, yet no one is talking about that because it's what everyone agrees on. What people are arguing is whether or not 17 year old girls should be that "naive" in this day and age. Nobody ever even mentioned him getting a free pass in this thread, yet a 17 year old agreeing to giving up free nudes? That's something to discuss since it's such a common thing. Today's youth is exceptionally stupid.

I feel like it goes hand in hand with teenagers thinking they're invincible, or that terrible things can't happen to them. Girls giving out their nudes to older guys is not anything new, it makes them feel better and is a stroke to the ego "oh this guy thinks I'm hot" sort of mentality. They're naive in the sense that they don't understand how idiotic they're being doing something like that in an age where with a click of a button and one butthurt boyfriends their pictures will wind up online forever. They want that sort of recognition until it goes too far, and by then they don't even get how it wound up that way because they didn't have the self respect to say "no." I'm not trying to put the blame on those girls, that dude is a sick bastard to do that, especially when he has kids. But society has shaped teenage girls to be this way.

For example, my teenage cousin recently got in a shit ton of trouble from my uncle for sending nudes. She is a soph in highschool, and he went on her phone one day and saw her texts, and that she had been sexting and sending nudes to a guy. It was this whole big ordeal in their house because that was the first time in his entire life that he ever struck one of his kids. He was so upset and crying, because he couldn't understand what he did wrong as a parent, both him and my aunt. And they're really kind people. Kids do dumb shit like that, because they just don't get why it's bad (at that age), not just because they are from a bad home or something. It's teenage stupidity.
>>
>>8667601
Lol well there have definitely been people in the thread talking about it, but the girls themselves also say they were stupid and naive. They learned their lesson the hard way because someone took advantage of them, but they did learn their lesson.

It's worth noting that the context is much different when it's a girl and her equally-young boyfriend or guy she likes, vs a much older man intentionally approaching a young woman and lying about his motivations in order to manipulate her into sending him nude photos.

Your uncle sounds like a nice guy but he overreacted. Your cousin's behavior warrants a serious talk and some punishment, but hitting is ineffective. It's just going to make her scared of him and not trust him to talk to her about mistakes she's made.
>>
>>8667597
This is silly though. Why should they be punished for the obnoxious party crashers. Dressing like a celebrity happens all the time, in public. Hell some people are famous for it. Fuck Moe's restaurants hang look alikes up on their walls.

Also doing that to the girl who wrote the article is a smear campaign with a dash of mobbing and is an intimidation tactic.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobbing#In_the_workplace
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intimidation
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smear_campaign

I just googled and read a few articles. The students dressed like miners and carried around gold pans, had overalls and put soot across their noses. People said they were black facing. Some students parodied Kim Kardashian and stuffed their butts. Others dressed like rappers. All of the interviews of black students are like reading a paranoid conspiracy theorist rant about how everything is out to get them. The ASU is calling it a racist attack and demanding action. Sigma Phi Epsilon released an apology for any harm or miscommunication, but where confused as to why they were getting the attention they were because none of the costumes had to do with race. Just song references, references to rap, and non racial references to the celebrities themselves.

Then apparently a girl writes and article telling these students to cool their jets with the witch hunt, theres bigger fish to fry than these non issues and they collectively lose their shit and try to make and example of someone who speaks out against their behavior.

As an Indian I don't give a shit about brown makeup, but once again fucking nignogs in America act like they speak for all minorities.

3: people will just get upset over everything
>>
>>8666479
To be honest, I don't mind this mentality as much as the people who wear darker makeup, get a shitton of backlash from it, then cry about how everyone's calling them a racist.

You have the right to do whatever the fuck you want. Sometimes those actions affect other people and sometimes those people will lash out at you, but aside from expressing their anger, offense, or disappointment, they cannot do anything against you. It bothers me more when people do something that has racist connotations, then get buttmad about how people are calling them racist. Like what the fuck are you expecting?

Is anyone from England and thinks character portrayal is racist? Or is it just American girls? Curious to know.

Vivienne and Garnet get pulled in all the time but they're not American dark, they're British characters. They're portrayed as dark British characters even if the voice actor isn't. They chose a different nationality for these two specifically.

I have only ever seen one mixed Indian girl get mad over this issue.
>>
>>8667634
Dude he just gave her a good old smack. She's lucky she didn't get the belt like me or my siblings would have gotten back in the day.
My uncle had to leave hishouse for a while and stayed with his older son (like mid 30s) since he felt so horrible. He was in such shock that she would do that and them WHAM he just smacks her across the face. My other aunts and uncles were just like "what is the issue? you just hit her once and she deserved it"

I honestly don't see the problem with giving your kid a whack or two when they do something that classifies like irrideemably shameful. Not over stupid shit where you just ground the kid, but I seriously just don't understand this new aged "don't hit your kid!!!! ever!!" thinking.

She's currently the eldest daughter in the house, and has a few younger sisters who look up to her. But also there's no lock allowed on her phone (i think the rule was something like you are allowed to have a lock on your phone when you're a senior in hs, for his kids) I feel like her sending out nudes like that when they regularly go on her phone to play games or can easily access it, she should know better. But also imagine the shock when you just find that your little girl, who is underaged, even if the guy is as old as her, is sending out naked pictures of herself. When one of these guys can easily just save the pictures to his phone, or send them to his friends or other students. At the end of the day, it's still child pornography.
>>
>>8667899
That picture just makes me want to smack those two bitches, they were so damn rude and obnoxious.

But yeah, idk what is up with black people in America but they are so damn whiney about race, all of the time, and god forbid you qualify as any other sort of minority because you were never as oppressed as them. I feel like people are just irritated by blacks in America at this point in time mainly because of how damn annoying and whiney they act, as opposed to actual oppression anymore. I'm a spic, and they just grate on my nerves all of the time.

I'm not a fan of darkening your skin to the character since 99% of the time it looks like shit, but goddamn people, let people do what they want without being morally outraged over a non-issue. No one is erasing anything. We still know these characters are x races even if a pasty white dresses up like her because they, guess what, admire the character.

I'm honestly floored that people get offended by the idea that people like characters of other races so much they want to be like them. Just over half a century ago, people would have been disgusted that black/brown/asian people were portrayed as anything but stock caricatures, and now we have this. It's good guys, and it's only going to get better (hopefully).
>>
>>
>>8667940
It's obvious that they're more often than not bratty to start with. Like, how many times have you seen that type of cosplayer fish for compliments by going "I want to be [character]...but I'm so white :(((" so that they'll get people going "Nooo, oh my god, you'd be sooooo good as them! Doooo it, fuck those haters"

And then when the backlash rolls in they get to have a pity party about SJW ruining their crap contour adventure.

This

With religion less much of an influence now as it was, I don't think we as humans have left those fantatical behaviors behind. It's painfully obvious that social justice has become this new form of preaching, following, and repenting constantly for their guilt, because religions don't have such an affect on them anymore. They just feel the need to place their power in another way, yet ironically are not much different from corrupted religious institutions.

Honestly, I see nothing wrong with a cosplayer making a genuine intention to look like the character. If they had painted themselves with black shoe paint or acrylic and ran to a convention hoping to gain attention, then it'd be an issue. If a cosplayer is coming from an artistic and fan perspective, they're making an attempt to pay an homage to a character. Plenty of people in this community use circle lenses or lighter skin foundations for cosplay without much issue. If you're going dark, at least go a natural dark, not jet black Mr. Popo black and not expect to get bashed for it.

I wouldn't do it, because I just don't want to do it. I think my cosplay would be perfect in my opinion, even without having the same skin colour then the character, but for some people, their cosplay is perfect for THEM, when their skin tone matches... Oh and I would fuck it up anyways.

The funny thing is that if a white person cosplayed a dark character, they would be called out as whitewashing the character and then called racist. Honestly a lot fo black kids have gotten it into their head that they can bully other races because they deserve some kind of trophy for their race's past treatments. Bitch, please. Not everything is racist or has racial intent. Take your Tumblr ass, 'race card' out of here and instead of talking about how you want the world to be fair, maybe stop calling everything anyone who is white does as racist. You sure as fuck aren't helping.

Anyone who doesn't see the difference between blackface and HS cosplay or whiteface is too stupid and/or ignorant on the issue to have a valid opinion in this matter.

Honestly, anyone who sees people finding blackface offensive as just another Tumblr-tier grasp for racisism is too stupid and/or ignorant to deserve to live on this planet. I can't believe this shit thread even happened. I mean I can, but it's still sad.

>>8668018
I'm from England and I haven't seen a convincing argument for why it's racist. I've seen people say why they personally find it offensive and you know what? Fair play. Each to their own.

But personally I don't see how it's racist.

That said, I know someone who apparently draws a very firm line on this topic. They say it's not okay. End of. And yet they have tanned up for different cosplays but apparently that's okay because she's already mixed race?

..which is surely just an example of double standards.

So far I've only ever seen people wear tanning products for darker skinned characters (often never coming close to the character's tone just the cosplayer looks less pasty), but I've never seen someone do full make up irl.
>>
>>8668775
If anything, it's racist towards white people.
>>
>>8668779
Interestingly, I once saw someone put forth the argument that 'white people wearing dark make up encouraged dark people to wear light make up' in terms of achieving accuracy.

To which people then jumped on the taking offense train cited the cultural and historical president in Asian cultures (both Indian and the far East) to prize white/paler skin. Which was put down to the white-supremacy of the time and still exists.

Personally I think if judging a competition came down to accuracy of skin colour that would be going too far. But in terms of how a cosplayer wants to portray a character, whether it be using their natural tone accurate or otherwise, or using make up, is up to the individual.

But it was odd watching POCs come down like a tone of bricks on some of their own for using product to make their skin look lighter. Or getting het up at the very idea of it. Like this was some how a denouncement of their heritage. And that individual's choosing to pursue their own idea of beauty without repercussion was not the right attitude for 2015.

And yet these same people say 'you x white cosplayer cannot pull off this character as well as we can b/c'.

Either skin colour matters or it doesn't.
>>
ok then what about black girls white facing?
>>
>>8668806
Bec's cosplay wonderland is famous for this in Canada. Personally I find it more offensive as she is giving the message that her dark skin is unattractive and something that needs to be corrected. At least when people use makeup to darken their skin it isn't for negative reasons. And no I'm not white so fuck right off with that.
>>
>>8669229

>>
>>8667546

People always say that. They call it victim blaming. "That woman was asking for it" "You should have known better".

The reason for this is simple. They don't want it to happen again. Yes, I know the argument, "we should be telling people not to rape/kill/steal" That's being disingenuous. We ARE telling people not to commit crimes. Every day, with basically every breath, we tell people to choose good and reject evil.

So why focus on the victims? Because they are the ones who can learn. Not maybe then in particular, but by making an example of the things they did that made it easier to be victimized, we can show people how to not make the same mistakes. Telling people not to take and focusing on the criminal relies on future criminals listening to you tell them not to break the law. Good luck with that.

Our survival as a person and as a species has always been reliant on learning. We can't control the actions of criminals until we know the crime will be committed, which in many cases will be too late. We tell people every day not to do evil, but if somebody is set on doing evil, they won't stop just because you say please.

A potential victim who is armed with knowledge of how not to be victimized is one less crime committed, and potentially a criminal showing his hand without being able to harm.

We blame the victims because while it is the nature of evil to do evil, the victims have a chance to save themselves. To prepare, to prevent, to take precautions. And when that chance isn't taken, there is a new chance : a chance for others to learn why we hold a torch when we go out into the dark. Why we lock our doors when we go to bed.
