let’s address the lack of diversity in the roleplay community! there is such a sparse amount of characters that are bipoc, lgbtq+, disabled and have mental illnesses; but that’s just the start. there are plenty of resources that allow you to find faceclaims, do your research and stay accurate! i’m just going to plug a few that i know of!
          
          — diversity bby ! by @KaJDancer ,, shes doing so much research and compiling it all into a book for you all to use to make your character accurate. please go look at this!

          for faceclaims in general, all social media platforms have so many beautiful people to use! tiktok, instagram, tumblr, wattpad and pinterest are great apps to find some new faceclaims! 
          
          lack of research and the feeling of misrepresentation may be what’s making you nervous about stepping outside of your comfort zone. all you need to be cautious of is making sure you do your research, with proper websites and sources, so you can accurately portray someone! so many websites have tons of information about certain cultures, illnesses, sexualities or whatever else makes your character diverse.

          This list does not NEARLY contain every name of every person killed solely because of racist police officers. How can you stand idly by when fellow AMERICANS are being killed? If your stance is so American-based, why are you not helping your fellow Americans? How can you stand idly by when fellow CHRISTIANS are being killed? If your stance is so religion-based, why are you not following the words of your God? Ephesians 4:32 "Be kind to one another, tenderhearted...” How can you stand idly by when fellow PARENTS are being killed? How can you stand idly by when fellow STUDENTS are being killed? How can you stand idly by when fellow HUMAN BEINGS are being killed? Even during a worldwide pandemic, protests and marches need to be held so that we can all have equal rights. This movement isn’t about making the world colorblind — it won’t work. It can’t work, when teachers expect lower grades from black students, when employers discriminates against with African-American sounding names, when even after being hired, work is scrutinized much worse when it is done by a white person compared to a black person, when doctors do not provide care to anyone that isn’t white. How can you even sleep at night, knowing you’ve turned down someone solely because of their skin color? How does that not break your heart? 
          
          Colorblindness won’t work because we’re not in a post-racial world. People of color, sadly, need to be aware that the color on their skin makes them targets in certain places. White people need to recognize their privilege. Privilege — a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group.

I would consider being less likely to be arrested or shot privilege. I would consider being less likely to be fired from a job or not even considered for hiring in the first place privilege. I would consider being less likely to be patted down or suspected of doing illegal activities privilege. I would consider using marijuana at a much higher rate, but not being arrested privilege. I would consider getting lower sentences for the same exact crime privilege. I would consider being more than two times as likely to get into college as my equally qualified counterpart because I’m white privlege. I would consider being more likely to be hired, even with a criminal record, than an equally qualified person of color with no record privilege. There are thousands of ways every day that as a white person, I experience privilege. I will wholeheartedly agree that I’ve not done enough action, because as we all know, action speaks louder than words. 
            
            I promise that I will be better at using my privilege to my advantage; seeing as I already get a higher platform to speak on. I know that my privilege can start making actual change because I am listened to. It breaks my heart that we have to fight for equal opportunities and rights and lives for people, because we are all human beings. It also breaks my heart that the same people who would be excited to put a black person in jail if they’ve committed a small, low level offense crime turn a cheek to doing anything more than firing those police officers who KILL innocent people. While we can not ignore the past and all of the hardships that people of color have gone through over time, but we can recognize that this is the time for change to be made. I would rather attend graduations, birthday parties, baby showers, promotion parties, or weddings than attend a funeral of an innocent life lost.
