Do you not post these in the normal cosplay threads because they aren't good? If someone criticizes these or mentions how insanely low effort most of these are is that racism?

No one actually celebrates most of these on a national scale except for BHM, pride month, and now muh women's march cringefest.

They're just like the shitty "every day is national x day!" bs. Some people might eat pie on March 14th for Pi day or watch Stars Wars on May the 4th (pun on "may the force" but with a lisp) but beyond that it's just majority-minority snowflakes being snowflakes.

Go sit over there with the ballarinas and /k/ people that NEED to tell people they are wrong because if they suffered/sat through years of training they must show their superior knowledge.

What is it with you guys? Some of you (>>10096434) even realize that no one can tell but you but you still can't let the rest of us just enjoy things.

>>10095925

Because "normal" is usually white eurocentric looks for damn near everyone. They are doing what the art should have done in the first place: have characters without pale skin, small noses, small lips, no thighs, straight hair, ect.

There are a lot of types of beautiful people in the world and art should have reflected that.

Aesthetically speaking though it looks more fitting for their features rather than have black HeMan just just a blonde bowl cut sitting on his head.

Does anyone remember that one tiana cosplayer who was black/mixed and tons of black cosplayers were getting their panties in a twist because she wasn’t dark enough? And they say white people are the cause for the rift in the cosplay community.
>>
>>
>>10099331
There is a colorism issue in the black community outside of the cosplay community. That aside though, the cosplay community is predominantly a white people thing. And white people are where you will encounter a lot of the issues that arise.
>>
>>
>>10095220
>>10095416
It's by far superior to the shitty overteased, matted mess of pigtails that 98% of Junko cosplayers do
>>
>>10098375
If you wanted to prove your point, you should have posted a cosplay of a nonblack character being cosplayed by a black person without "blackifying" it. You're making a fool of yourself because it comes across as you basically saying that black people can only cosplay black characters.

There is a reason for that. Growing up nerd isn't easy as I'm sure you know. Growing up black nerd is another level.
Black boys are deep into appearing as manly and cool as possible. There are a lot of reason for this that I won't get into. As such they did not openly like comics, anime, and any game that wasn't based on a sport. Their friends would endlessly ream on them if they did.
So black nerd girls couldn't easily find the black nerd boys who share their interest. White boys are all over the nerd culture and thus, black girls end up with them.

If you want to see more black boys find their black girl then tell the boys to fucking like what they like and stop listening to their friends for approval.

Creators have biases.

Who wants to see that? Where it's not central to the plot, I prefer to consume media that depicts attractive people.

>>10101864

It is for the dark kids out there that get stiffed on seeing themselves portrayed positively in media.

Anime characters do not "look" white, they look like ridiculously stylized cartoons. That said, most Japanese people see anime characters as Japanese. When an anime character is meant to be white, they "look white" with features like prominent noses, blond hair, tanned skin, and usually for the girls, bigger boobs.

maybe if you didn't make a thread based on race and then excluded everyone except said race, people wouldn't complain? Like, why don't you just post these pictures in the cosplay thread? Like why are you segregating yourself and ostracizing anyone black in the community to a specialty thread?
It's sad and racist against anyone who isn't black. Where's the latino cosplay thread? The white cosplay thread? The asian cosplay thread? Oh right, they can all be grouped up together, but they're all racist against black cosplayers so they need their own little safe space.

It's pretty pathetic.
