y’all think its ok and harmless to make edits of a poc who is just fine the way he is imposing european beauty ideals on him because you “want to see what he looks like” like why the fuck do u even care what he would look like as a whiter version of…
Another example Dani Alves. I was just thinking of a soccer player. He’s also tanned, darker than David. So skin colour wise he’s not. You should know that Brazil is a diverse country, and people there are very racially mixed. Blue eyes isn’t only a European trait. Secondly you’re over reacting. It’s not racism, not even fucking close. It is a god damn edit. It’s insulting for you to mix actual racism with that. You don’t even have a real argument. You’re just finding ways to complain. “maybe finish the 9th grade before coming at me again thanks”. Oh don’t worry I’m done high school. But thanks for the stupid attempt at an insult.
oh my god are you seriously this dense
YES I KNOW POC CAN HAVE BLUE EYES AND WHITE PEOPLE CAN HAVE BROWN EYES THAT IS NOT THE POINT AT ALL WHATSOEVER YES I KNOW DANI ALVES IS POC YES I AM AWARE OF THE RACIAL DIVERSITY THAT EXISTS IN BRAZIL please don’t come at my intelligence while you’re bending over backwards to justify racism
the pOINT IS that poc get hailed for having light eyes because they’re “prettier” and not dark eyes and that is because european beauty standards have permeated our idea of beauty why do u not understand this
racism isnt just throwing bananas at ppl and hurling racial slurs it’s deeply ingrained in our society and photoshopping white traits onto someone who does not have them is inherently perpetuating the racist ideology that permeates our society. this isn’t even entirely about the edit of david luiz i’ve seen it on photos of zayn as well and its not cool in that case either
