#BlerdSquad

1. Attempting to reconcile two very distinct cultures which is, often times, difficult.

In other words “too black for the nerdy kids, but too nerdy for the black kids.”

2. When people realize you’re not the “cool black kid” of lore.

Fox / Via crushable.com

Sorry guys. My input on what’s going on in hip-hop culture is severely limited.

3. You know all too well that your parents kinda don’t get it.

Fox / Via mic.com

4. Dealing with the people who expect you to always have strong feelings on the casting of traditional superheroes as POC.

FX / Via giphy.com

5. And when they realize you actually like the original Peter Parker, they treat it as if you’ve disrespected your people.

Warner Brothers Pictures / Via zap2it.com

Just because I don’t care that the next Spider-Man is black doesn’t mean I don’t support the cause, people.

6. The realization that there are not a lot of POC options to cosplay as.

Homegrown Pictures / Via youtube.com

7. So you say “Fuck it,” and just do you.

8. Having to call out people for making racist slurs on Xbox Live is just a typical day.

NBC / Via youtube.com

9. Not to mention the racist remarks on online forums and in fan chat rooms.

20th Century Fox / Via giphy.com

10. And you always have a weird sense of camaraderie with any other POC at conventions.

ABC / Via youtube.com

11. You have to bite your tongue when people insist that historically, black people wouldn’t be in things like Lord of the Rings.

USA / Via Netflix.com

12. Or assume that the black character in a series must be your favorite.

Tyler the Creator / Via wifflegif.com

13. Then there are those times when you read a novel and imagine a character as a POC…

NBC / Via pandawhale.com

14. … but then you watch the movie and realize they’re actually white.

Universal Pictures / Via imgarcade.com

15. Or worse, when you know a character’s a POC, but the movie casts them as white anyway.

16. Then you notice that every main character in a video game is white.

17. POC superhero figures were so few that seeing them at all made a huge impact on you as a kid.

NBC / Via bustle.com

18. Which made meeting your childhood POC idols the greatest treat because of how much they made you believe that you could be special, too.

19. It’s always upsetting when you watch all the POC die or leave your favorite show.

USA / Via Netflix.com

20. And you’re reminded, yet again, how much representation actually matters.

 

21. But you can’t deny the comradeship that comes with being a part of the blerd community.
