Most people should argue about the theme of culture not race. Its 2018. Nobody cares if you are sporting dreadlocks and you are caucasian. It is the implication and complication of people disregarding people cultures. I read a story when a character wore a hijab. I was all excited like ‘‘Wooooo! I wonder what interesting story will behind it, I wonder why she chose to wear it, I wonder what was her personal journey though it.’’ I read for 3 chapters, by the second one it was gone. Okay. 6 more chapters, it disappeared. Fanmail will help. The girl said she wasn’t wearing a hijab and it was just to keep her hair dry because the INK didn’t have proper hats xD (in her own words.) first of all I understand this isn’t talking specifically about features but just remember. There are people who have struggled with it, My friend had her hijab torn off her head on the bus. Authors can use whatever they like on anybody! Want an afro on a white guy! Uhh… go for it! Rastafarian and ginger? Yes work it. But rmember the impacts it has on certain people. Feautures such as monolids (which I will use like the example above because it works so well.) were surgically removed because of the ridiculing so I feel if you want to add something please please undertsnad the culture behind it. You don’t even need to have a whole background story for it, just understand what you are talking about, or including. Just know the impact that specific feautures have for some people, and you need to keep it in mind. So no disrespecting (for example calling twist hair, nappy like tf.) or being straight up dumb about it. (had a story when they added a black woman with literally white lipstick for natural. or when PARENTS DO NOT CHANGE FEAUTURES TO MATCH MY CHARACTERS.) No feauture is owned by anyone but remember that a race is linked to culture (sometimes ) and that adding a feauture linked to a race instantly may bring in culture!
(NOT TRYNA START BEEF BTW I UNDERSTAND AND I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING SAID SO NO BEEF PLEASE)
