Hey, Brian. I'm an aspiring writer, and I have this complex about being a person of color trying to break into comics. I know I'm probably making a bigger deal out of this than I should, but it's kind of disheartening to see gatherings of creators and to notice the lack of color. Am I worrying for nothing? I tend to over analyze things, so this has been bugging me more than it probably should. I apologize in advance if this question is stupid, annoying, or has been asked before.
I am not a person of color but I am the father of a multiracial household and I’m Hypery aware of the world we live in in this regard. but I truly believe that there is nothing standing in your way of making your dreams as a creative person come true. It’s between you and your talent.
truthfully most of us don’t even know what each other looks like. all anybody cares about is the quality of each other’s work.
do not put things in front of you to stop yourself from making your dreams come true. do not. people do this all the time and I truly believe it’s the difference between those who succeed and those who fail.
stop rejecting yourself before the rejection comes. and if rejection comes, and it will, don’t make it about anything but your work.
i bought green tea because i drink a lot of fucking tea and the green one is supposingly better for you? anyway, i go make a cup and i found out its actually yellow. wtf is this bullshit, explain this to me.
That is the madness of reality. Like how grapes are sometimes green? Did no one tell those fuckers that the color grape is purple.
In a related story I recently ate a thing of 711 neon blue candy that made me poop in green once the alien die and unnatural business passed through my earth system. 37 years old and still new colors of poop yet to discover. It was worth staying alive this long.
I hate how females are so gender oriented. If something good happens, it’s always “but it happened to a man, how unfair”. When something bad happens, “a man did that, the bastards”. It even happens in places where it shouldn’t, “Why is it called a cowBOY hat? I’m…
When girls do it, it’s to alter the name of something that’s gender specific so it aligns with their own. Which is completely acceptable (and should be encouraged). When guys rename female oriented products, it’s never something with a gender specific title in the name, it’s just so they can feel okay about doing something “girly”
