tbh the fact that asexuals get ‘awareness’ and not ‘pride’ should immediately alert you to the severe degree of marginalization we face even and especially within the queer community

Anonymous said: "some mixed people w/ a white parent have light-skin privilege and/or white passing privilege, but that’s about it." i don't think you understand the implications of that statement. in asia for example beauty is based on how western you look and how light your skin in. mixed people are Generally lighter skinned than monoracial people. it's a massive privilege to be light-skinned or white passing. do u know how many girls in asia bleach their skin? don't dismiss monoracial people.

first of all, i can’t really talk about racism/colourism/privilege in asia bc i have never lived in asia. my original response was about people living in north america. however, i am hesitant to accept the implication that asian beauty standards are based on perceived “western-ness.” obviously white beauty standards have permeated some asian cultures via the hegemonic nature of whiteness and white supremacy. however, colourism in asia long predates white influence (it is linked historically to classism). the assumption that asians desire to look white is really problematic and i’d encourage you to examine that statement more closely.   

more to the point though. i do not mean to dismiss monoracial people who are not white passing. of course, it is a massive privilege to be light-skinned or white-passing (as compared with dark-skinned/non-white-passing poc). as a conditionally white-passing mixed person, i understand this. however, generalizing all mixed people as light-skinned or white passing is massively problematic. MANY mixed people (even those with a white parent) do not have light skin and/or do not pass as white. we do not all look the same. to claim that all mixed people benefit from “mixed privilege” then is hugely dismissive of dark-skinned and non-passing mixed folks and it’s not okay.

marinashutup:

I would say so? At least to some degree. Some mixed race people who are half white are white passing and experience privilege in that way. Mixed people also are often seen as “exotic”, which is usually said as a compliment, but it brings in aspects of this weird type of fetishization of multiracial people (that monoracial POCs experience as well, but it’s a bit different.) I guess I don’t want to say that mixed race people are super privileged (not all mixed people are half white/white passing), but it’s definitely a different experience. Issues of racial identity and not feeling like you fit into a specific race/ethnicity are super common and confusing.

umm, no, there’s no such thing as “mixed privilege.” some mixed people w/ a white parent have light-skin privilege and/or white passing privilege, but that’s about it. 

also, not directed at marina obviously, but i’m going to need monoracial people to stop calling us half x and half y, okay thanks

I like Idris Elba as much as the next guy but when I see people fancasting him as multiple people in the same franchise I start to think they just don’t know a second black actor

If you leave yogurt alone for 200 years it will develop it’s own cultures.
