”Here’s the second deal: I’m also black. Which is fine by most everyone, until I have the audacity to cosplay a character who isn’t.
After my pictures started making the rounds on deviantArt, tumblr and 4chan, it became pretty clear that my cosplay brings all the racists to the yard, and they’re like…white cosplay is better than yours.”
File this under why White Fandom needs to die and rot in hell. This is a taste of the hatred, denigration, and pure unadulterated hell that fans of color have to endure every day.
Also, mad love and respect to the beautiful, talented, and immensely awesome Chaka Cumberbatch for standing tall and being every bit of the super heroine that she cosplays.
