SPG, while not displaying the same amount of disgusting and frankly stupid actions that others have, recently had one of its members question the yellow face and why everyone was so bothered by it in Cloud Atlas.
When a person replied with a conscientious and concise explanation of why it was a goddamn problem, the member responded with “Nah. I disagree.” Which, as a white person unaffected by the negative ramifications of yellow face, they can afford to.
It stinks. There’s something bad there and I’m not waiting until they really fuck up like Abney Park or Amanda Palmer did.
I’m sorry you feel that way. But I will not automatically hate someone just because they have an opinion I disagree with. If I did that I would hate everyone.
David defended his opinion on that movie which you can find here:
Leave it up to a fucking white person to tell us what is or isn’t yellowface, as if PoC in this subculture don’t feel alienated as it is
“I will not automatically hate someone just because they have an opinion I disagree with”
Because remember, choosing not to support something is hate, as is choosing to consume media with reservations or consciousness of problematic behavior on the part of the artists.
You can only fan something with your whole being, or HATE IT. There is no middle ground.
