This is a (loose) transcript of my youtube video

Hey Guys, it’s Kat and I’m here to talk to you about BLACK FACE.

In light of recent controversies, the YouTube community has taken to calling out problematic youtubers. I’m a huge fan of…

I am not, in any way, trying to make this about me (as the “not all men/white people” types do). I am not trying to make a strawman, or in anyway derail, disregard, or mock the very fine, very educational essay I am reblogging. I am asking the following question because I am genuinely curious as to what the proper course of action would be, what would be respectful and acceptable. And I’m asking on a reblog, because I think the people who’ve reblogged this would have valuable insight and opinions on this.

I am white. My exact ethnicity may be debatable, but my skin is white. There are a number of black characters that would be fun to cosplay. Hell, lets say I want to show how much I like Falcon from The Winter Soldier, because he’s awesome.

What is the appropriate way to cosplay someone from another race, especially when you are a white cosplayer wanting to cosplay a black character? Would an accurate, not-characaturized makeup job be acceptable?

You wear the costume and not the ethnicity/culture/race. 

It is really fucking simple Look at the blog cosplayingwhileblack none of them did yellowface when cosplaying Japanese characters
