Anyone can cosplay as anyone/anything they want. Also, that’s the actual voice actress for Korra. She literally IS the avatar.
Roast me all you want, but I don’t understand how telling a white person they can’t cosplay a POC character isn’t the exact same thing as telling a POC not to cosplay a white character. Just because we’re white doesn’t mean it’s racist, jesus christ. White people are not the only people who can be racist. Racism is not an inherently “white” thing. Racism is literally just hating on someone because of the color of their skin. So if you’re black and you hate someone just because they’re white, guess what: that’s RACIST. It’s not “reverse racist”. No. It’s plain fucking racist. like jesus christ.
Also what xxthesmittenkittenxx said: this is from a video of the voice actress pretending to be the real avatar. Like… know your shit before you go crazy social justice.
The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.
Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)
It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.
I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit.
Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.
Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.
"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)
Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them

if you watch game of thrones, a show full of murderers, rapists, people who flay others alive, stab pregnant women in the stomach, murderer people at weddings, kill family members, zombies, a guy who bashes babies skulls on walls and rapes their mother etc etc
and the character you hate the most is a teenage girl, who has lost her entire family and is living in a city where she cant trust a single person because they either want to fuck her or use her for their own political gain, then you need some serious help, like call a doctor now
