Personally, I don’t think black people should be cosplaying. They just don’t look accurate enough to be the characters, regardless of who they cosplay.
Hello, my pic is in here, the lower left of a troll from Homestuck named Equius Zahhak.
I would just to say this isn’t an “opinion”, this is just straight up ignorance disgused as one because whoever submitted this cannot accept the fact that cosPLAY is for fun and not because of the color of the skin.
How dare you insult a certain group of people, whoever you are. Cosplaying is not a serious matter but something that people, regardless of skin tone, should enjoy and not worrying about the color of skin just because some asshat can’t comprehend the fact that not EVERYONE will be “accurate” in someone elses’ eyes. EVERY cosplay in that picture is amazing, regardless of your ignorant statements.
I detect that you are not aware of other “darker-skinned” characters in anime/comics/cartoons/video games/etc such as Afro Samurai, Misty Knight, Korra, Bob Makihara, Zero Zero 8…all of which ANYONE can cosplay. They can cosplay who the damn well want and you can’t do anything about it.
The whole idea that a certain group of people “can’t” or “shouldn’t” be partaking in a recreational craft hobby just because of how they look is completely fucking ridiculous.
"Hey you shouldn’t knit scarves! Only white people can do that!"
"Whoa there, put down that paper. Only Asian people should be doing origami."
"Are you making a wig? Oh no, put that down, only black people have any business making weaves."
"Stop having fun and learning skills, because you weren’t born the right color for that."
