Check out the grief this black guy is getting from other black people for asking this question. Then check his profile to see more of the grief.
There is a term for people who take culture usually from oppressed people without permission, cultural appropriation, but we need a term for when members of oppressed group are eager to give their culture away to other groups to exploit.

One thing I learned about existing online while being a [queer and fat] highly visible BW:

Some folx just wanna fight. That's really it. Some folx wanna fight and they see you as the perfect punching bag.
Case in point: I tweeted about having friends check you when you're showing your ass online.

SEVERAL people were committed to missing my point and acting like I was advocating for violence 🤣
Next case in point:

@ReignOfApril tweeted about how Trans rep is part of the #OscarsSoWhite conversation & should be taken just as seriously & certain Trans folx (guess that color) spun it as her centering herself & got mad when she said she would step they asked.

I invite you to read all of @rebel19’s thread below because she nails it, as always. I also agree with @jes_chastain’s point that the onus is on Hollywood to make more films with WOC leads. HOWEVER. #OscarsSoWhite
I believe that @jes_chastain, the other women in this photo, and lead actors & actresses generally underestimate their power. Both in film and ESPECIALLY w/ media outlets like the @latimes. #OscarsSoWhite
