when youre at a concert does it suddenly hit you at random moments that the band are real people and not just pictures on the internet
'Do not lost hope'
'Please stay strong a little bit more'
‘We are waiting’
'Are you Hungry ?'
you know when Malcolm X died, his funeral was held in a church because none of Muslims (who were mostly Arabs) wanted to have his funeral in a masjid or any connection to him. Black socialist and church members took care of Malcolm X’s funeral and his family. Arab-Muslims and…
SO MUCH THIS.
I honestly did not think it would offend anyone until the day of the concert when my friend said, “I hope people don’t confuse your intentions.” And I said, oh…well I’m sure we all love the loof version and love Himchan and continued with my excitement for the concert. For most of my friends, when people legitly made fun of Himchan’s English I was pissed. I have videos defending Taeyang on the same thing. But would I wear a shirt that says “Don’t Kill My Vive”? HELL YES. Because race and its constructions is a wall I don’t wanna beat on angrily and bitterly but just embrace what’s important about music and not taking image so seriously. Like I said, I respect everyone’s perspectives and their stories. I get that I don’t know what it’s like to have English as my second language. But no one should try to minimize my experiences with Korean and no one should assume anything about my character or intentions. That video was made because I was mad that people decided to be so shady and address me and my friends on another page, clump together the entirety of nyc into a ball of batshit cray and basically say we are the worst. That’s wrong and I did not like it and I voiced that.
Now for the people who expressed themselves, rationally I did not mean to offend or belittle your experiences or stories. So I’m sorry if that came across. But I am not sorry for wearing my shirt or for the fun I had at the concert during Hurricane. If that bothers people further, I’m not gonna let this continue to hurt me bc I know who I am.
And you have expressed all of this. Believe me, I understand everything that you are saying. Just like I understand where the others are coming from too. Both sides are making valid points, And I understand fully what your intentions were. But others don’t know your intentions and still more, after you explained your intentions, more still don’t care about your intentions. Regardless of all of that. it’s the past now. People feel how people feel. This site is full of feelings. What we all do is learn from the situation.
And this is not directed toward you but toward the other people angry at this situation. You know why this blew up - because when you saw someone that you felt did something problematic, instead of speaking to them - and believe me, it’s very easy to get in contact with Tracy - you decided to make comments and slander this person. It would be better to address them. Find out what’s going on. But in the nature of this call out culture, people want attention by being angry in public and all this does is cause more anger. Just a word to the wise - in my religion, we have this thing called naseehah - which means advice. You give this advice in private. The reason for this is that people become defensive when you publically address them and they don’t want to hear what you are saying - not to say this is you Tracy, but the nature of people. There seems to be a lack of this concept in this situation. All of this can be avoided with a little tact in how we deal with one another.
And what’s more upsetting is the same people who are righetously angry about this situation commit the same faux pas consistantly on this website. It’s okay when they do it to others, as long as it’s not done to them or someone that they like. This is something that needs to be addressed too because you cannot become angry and self righteous over a crime you commit. That’s like stealing someones ipod but getting mad when it’s stolen from you. It makes no sense and it’s shady to say the least. People are using this situation to get their two minutes of fame and to write post that get “yaas girls” and “^this” to the point where it’s not even about “loof” any more, it’s just and ego trip.
To you Tracy, I’m saying the same thing I said before. Maintain your grace and maintain your faith. Keep an open heart, listen, but you are not required to take anyone’s belittling, insulting or degradation.
I hope we can all make this a situation that we learn from,
The main ones who participate in the “call out culture” of this websites are the same people who think casual bigotry, coming for someones appearance, saying slurs that aren’t theirs and doing so many humanistic-ly ”problematic” (ya’ll word not mine) things. Like, he who is without sin cast the first stone. None of you can because you’re all guilty as sin. Some of you blatantly have bigoted, racially insensitive remarks in you descriptions that you not only defend but celebrate and use as adjectives to describe yourselves. Like how do you look?
This is a project I’ve been doing for a while; fish painted in layers with acrylic and resin to give them a 3D look.
New Home Is Where The Internet Is! Tumblr’s 10-page limit is keeping me from posting the whole thing, so head on over to the webcomic to read the rest (plus a blog post with Paris photos and doodles).
I’m going to Strasbourg tomorrow!!! I’m so excited. We might take a day trip into Germany and the Black Forest 8-D AHHHHHH. Back soon, love and hugs~
-Your friend Tally
Tally is not only an AMAZING comic artist but she’s living the dream! I hope my girls grow up and don’t let the constant yet abstract notion of fear dictate how they live in this world. Way to go Tally!! :D
I love this so much! As someone who’s only really started to travel in the last year, I totally get that initial terror. I’ve been pretty fortunate, and made so many friends all over the world. I went to Boston on a whim this weekend and got to spend an evening with comic people I met mostly through twitter - and everyone was wonderful. Yes, I got terrible food poisoning on the way home, but I also got to have barbecue and Manhattans with people who used to be strangers. Travel! It’s good for you.
I’ve been experiencing something like this a lot, too, and it’s so true! Even when the motel is covered in blood or people are throwing rocks at us or any number of bad and kinda scary happenings, traveling is so much fun and worth it and I feel so alive!
I did a thing for a contest and I think it turned out pretty durn cute
Well I hope you fucking win because this is a win!
This is perfect.
