lol I’ve read 5000 fics where the Doctor and Rose celebrate Thanksgiving or do Halloween in a way I consider a bit too American so I THINK I ACTUALLY PREFER THIS
ten and rose celebrate the fourth of july with a kiss under hte fireworks
ten and rose are arrested for jaywalking and wind up having sexy prison times
ten and rose are broke from having to pay for their healthcare, angst ensues
ten and rose have bacon and syrup together and sweet french toast for breakfast
ten and rose go on a shopping trip to target
ten and rose always tip their waitresses by 25%
Yep. I haven’t had an opportunity to reply to the first message I got about this, though.
I largely understand where they’re coming from, although I think they mean that white women shouldn’t call themselves intersectional feminists, not that we can’t talk about intersectionality itself.

Bullshit and fuck you, race war was not averted, white people waged all-out race war against Black people in Africa for centuries using every manner of weaponry and technology and violence and cruelty at their disposal, from the first Boers and Brits of the Dutch East India Company to Dr. Livingstone and Henry Stanley, from King Leopold to the white supremacist National Party of apartheid fame who admitted that they were working in laboratories on biological weapons which would only kill Black people.
It’s a race war, waged by white people, every day that the world is shaped the way it is under white supremacism. White people only call it a “race war” if Black people fight back to defend themselves. Therefore, in the distorted white lens, the greatest thing Mandela did is persuade Black people not to fight back too hard, that’s what white people are celebrating about him, practically sighing with relief, whew they didn’t form death squads and kill us all. They completely twist the point of his life and legacy.
Truth and Reconciliation doesn’t mean, now we’re okay with whiteness after all. It means, Black people and people of color are on the move, handling what’s happened and what’s happening, but moving on and leaving whiteness in the rear view mirror because there are bigger mountains to climb.
No, this is definitely not cultural appropriation XD
