*colour means nothing* (except the fact that PoC are socially, economically and politically marginalised from the moment they enter society because of their race, colour or ethnicity)  *we’re all human* (although PoC are constantly dehumanised, under-represented and their humanity constantly challenged by systematic racism thoroughly ingrained into our social consciousness) Iggy is disgusting.

AKA, I’m not racist, because I’m fucking a black dude and he lets me call him “my nigga”. 

When will people realize that ‘colorblindness’ isn’t a solution for racism, it’s just another way to erase the experiences of POC?

And when you erase our experiences, you’re practicing white supremacy.

If you refuse to see my color, you refuse to see me.

"Very important. General rule for English speakers - if you don’t do it in the human context, don’t do it in the nonhuman context.
Just make a little effort to say “she or he” or “her or him” if you don’t know the sex. It’s a little effort with a very important social message.
Nonhuman animals are *persons*, not *things*. Therefore, we should refer to a nonhuman animal as a “she” or “he,” never as an “it.””
