Let me tell you a story: I was an angry punk teenager. Not violent, but I did…
Straight up I am one of the only people in my circle of white friends and acquaintances who thinks this has anything to do with race. All of my white friends keep trying to justify supporting the police in general and saying they want to wait for the official statement to pass judgment (most bullshit copout ever). It’s especially bad living in the south because holy fuck people are racist as shit here, even the people who think they’re “liberal”.
"Oh Zanbon just hates cops/military/etc" you say?
No, actually, John trained at the police academy and worked as a peace officer, my dad was a federal law enforcement officer for most of my life and before that served over a decade in the military, my best friends dad is a Chicago police officer, my grandfathers served in WW2, my great grandparents were in WW1, we’re a big military and law enforcement family. I’m proof you can be white, pro-cop, come from a military background, and still think the stuff going down in Ferguson is straight up BULLSHIT. Fuck the police in Ferguson and fuck the entire state of Missouri for supporting this shit storm.
Yes, there are plenty of cops who are good people. I personally know lots of them and I have had a ton of really pleasant experiences with cops. Is it because police brutality is a lie cooked up by shit stirrers and minorities to achieve some secret agenda to ruin America? No, it’s probably because I’m white! And I’m sure as fuck not arrogant enough to think that my experience is universal.
I cannot comprehend the fact that people don’t think this is about race. I simply cannot comprehend that.
I swear to god I’m so fucking done with the casual racism of all these fucking ignorant ass white people who are willingly putting their heads in the sand.
Keep in mind that these may not apply to all cosplays, and that its not mandatory at all! Skill level should never hold you back from cosplaying what you want to, just do your best. But if you are interested, here are some quick tips on taking your cosplay to another level :)
Zanbon is my 90 hunter main. She is positively delightful and I hope you enjoy reading about her on this blog. This tumblr is primarily about huntery things and the adventures my hunter has around Azeroth. I have a few other toons and will post about them too. Sometimes.
