You know, maybe cosplayers don't like the idea of being arbitrarily grouped together based on how they were born? It's one step away from grouping people by medical condition. Maybe it would be nice instead to focus on "black characters" represented in media, if anything? Cause it really keeps me out how things have gone from "celebrating culture and history" (very understandable) to "celebrate me because of random genetic factors that has nothing to do with talent or effort".

What's the point of this thread?

>>9784252 I understand what you are fishing for. But trying to create negativity out of nothing helps nobody and only creates unnecessary tension. I'm sorry you were born into a time where racism is dying off and you can't easily generate victim hood without solid evidence.

What I'm saying is; is it really good to choose one visual element of a human being that is genetic and not chosen and then isolate their cosplay efforts in a separate genre then just cosplay? And, does cosplay itself count towards highlighting historical figures and culture? Because as far as I understand it, cosplay is a global culture not gatekept by any one group of people. Also, how does it help with assimilation and the breaking down of barriers to segment out and isolate people from the whole based on a physical characteristic? Doesn't that just enhance any sense of "othering" instead of inclusion?
>>
I don't mind threads like this but here's the thing: no one ever posts good cosplays in these threads. Yeah #blackmagic or whatever but the same basic bitch closet cosplay is boring to look at after the 4th time.
If you wanna post black cosplay and brag about black excellence in cosplay, post something that's actually good. Amazing tailoring, well made armor, etc. Closet cosplay Misty barely counts as cosplay, let alone #blackexcellence.
>>

>Also, how does it help with assimilation and the breaking down of barriers to segment out and isolate people from the whole based on a physical characteristic?
By acknowledging that they exist, and they're not just an anomaly to make a meme about to offset the general discomfort on the part of others in the community ("Nigger [x]", "Blackachu", etc etc).
>Doesn't that just enhance any sense of "othering" instead of inclusion?
You get that sense because you've never had to worry about it, or been othered in the community. By making threads like this and increasing visibility, black cosplay will be normalized.
If you post a black cosplayer in a general cosplay, you can bet at least one person will feel the need to comment on the cosplayer's race. However, that happens dramatically less often as it did before precisely because so many black cosplayers started popping up (the Black Sailor Venus cosplayer from like 2012, I believe, is what kick-started things when she spoke up about her experiences). This sort of thing is helping.

I'd really appreciate it if you didn't assume my skin color. Next time do I need to state exactly which shade of black I am and then perhaps still get revoked because it's the wrong shade? Are we not allowed to be ethnically anonymous on the internet anymore; do we have to begin every post stating what race we are?
>>

just like white cosplay then

Yes. If someone posted something like pic related as an example of white excellence or whatever, I'd shit on them for basic bitch closet cosplays too.

>>9784273 and >>9784274 are amazing however and this is how a (race) cosplay thread should be.
>>
>>9784392

why does it need to be a thread about excellence?

why cant it just be for all black cosplayers?

Because nobody cares about looking at the same basic, store-bought costumes. We're here to celebrate the achievements and craftsmanship of black cosplayers, not how the same 50 girls paid $30 for a shitty store bought outfit, left their natural hair in, and call a masterpiece.

Dude, I almost exclusively go for cute black girls, but there are plenty of wytwimmins! You can choose from. And usually the ones with Daddy issues, or crazy chicks that want the B&D fuck better than normies anyway. Shiiiiiit, I bet there's at least 20% of the whities and mixed that have preferences for black guys. And population difference means that even at 40% of black girls like white guys, you still get a larger pool.

I think the only thing about black cosplay i find annoying is how articles on certain websites tend to use it for their little agenda, saying how they take "ownership" of the character, and use it as flimsy justification to change the character's race in canon.

Not a cosplayer. Did this one cosplay and never cosplayed again. Never really cosplayed before this either. She did the photo shoot, posted the pics and exploited the cosplay community and nerds (that wanna fap to her) to promote herself and never looked back.
