So I can understand the concept of "White Washing" and how portraying POC or characters relating to other ethnicity white is clearly not ok, almost hounded to death, especially on Tumblr.
Then why portraying a white character as a POC considered ok?
I've been on tumblr for about....a few months now, and I've seen a fair few examples of white characters as POC. (I'm not counting cosplay in this grouping. Drawing only). And these arts are given likes and compliments and whatnot.
But If I see someone doing the opposite, making a POC character white (See: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/zamii070-harassment-controversy ) that suddenly isn't ok?
I just don't understand sometimes.
If people are going to complain about POC being protrayed white, then they should complain too about white people being protrayed as POC.
Thats what I think anyway.
