ok internet, here’s an interruption in your daily rugged white dude dashboard.
this is cykeem white:
cykeem is an up and coming male model who (i believe) just participated in his first fashion week. he is insanely beautiful.
i highly recommend you all join me in keeping a close eye in his career trajectory, because he’s an extremely talented model, and he is, imo, shockingly beautiful. everyone likes shockingly beautiful men, right? right.
When Ash was first launched here in the UK, I went to a ‘meet and greet’ with a large selection of booksellers. Now these were invited to HarperCollins HQ, so were the chosen few.
I waltzed around the room, telling them how excited I was that Ash was coming out, how it delved into mythology, history and just EPIC heroicness.
Then I met a bookseller who nodded politely then said:
“I can’t see the point stocking it. We’ve no Indians in our town.”
Well, I doubt she had any hobbits either but I bet she sold a few copies of The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings in her shop."

Why is that white people as a collective can relate to robots, anthropomorphic animals, aliens from another planet, non-anthropomorphic animals, fairies, vampires, and probably animate fungi but when someone writes a book or makes a show with a protagonist of color we’re just over here like “NOPE SORRY IT’S TOO HARD TO RELATE TO THAT PERSON I SHALL NOT READ IT”? I mean…what?
