“It’s a global revolution everybody get down, cause when I look around the majority is brown…”
I was literally thinking about this the other day.
Like, honestly, the native peoples of most countries in the world are brown, right? And even now, looking at this map, the people who inhabit most of the countries of the world are at least brown.
So, honestly, when we complain about whitewashing or the erasure of black and brown people in advertising, stories, films, art, etc., it’s really not us wanting to insert ourselves randomly into places — it’s us wanting to see the ACTUAL representation of black and brown people. You see how much of this muhfuckin’ world we make up? How you gon’ have a whole damn country with two PoC? fuckoutta here.

Make a wish and hang it on a bamboo tree…
Tanabata (meaning “evening of the seventh”) is a Japanese star festival, based on the story of the goddess Tanabata and the farmer Mikeran who fell in love. People generally celebrate this day by writing wishes on small pieces of paper, and hanging them on bamboo trees. The bamboo and decorations are often set afloat on a river or burned after the festival, around midnight or on the next day.
