Half of my listings on Etsy have been deactivated because of a “copyright infringement” of Hello Kitty… I never once claimed it to be official anything so why the hell has everything been taken down? What about other deco shops using Hello Kitty? Why the hell pick on mine? Maybe Etsy should also…
I would assume it was someone on Etsy. The copyright laws are much more lenient in Japan which is why people can profit off of fan-made items without issue.
Last week at the International Meeting of Black People...
White person (bursting through the door):Don't worry everyone; I'm here! Sorry, I got stuck in traffic, but I finally made it. That's right. I'm a white person! Please, hold your applause. I'm here to help you in the fight against racism. That's just the kind of person I am. I'm sincere, caring, and enthusiastic and ready to help in any way I can.
Black woman:Um, well I guess you could start by--
White person:Hey, I've got an idea. Let's all dress up like Trayvon Martin and march down main street! We'll call it "One Million Hoodies" and we can all go out and by Skittles and Arizona Teas and make speeches about white privilege.
Black woman:I don't... I don't think that'd be--
White person:Hey, I noticed one of your pamphlets said "End White Supremacy." First thing's first, we need to change that. I don't know, the phrase "white supremacy" sounds like it might alienate white people. How are we supposed to end racism without white people's help?
Black woman:You know white people created racism, right?
White person:OH THAT IS IT. YOU PEOPLE WILL NEVER END RACISM UNTIL YOU LEARN TO BE NICE TO WHITE PEOPLE. HOW DARE YOU BE SO CRUEL TO SOMEONE WHO JUST TRYING TO HELP YOU? I AM SO OUT OF HERE. GOOD LUCK ENDING RACISM WITHOUT ME. YOUR FIGHT IS NOW FUTILE.
Dion:Now watch white people argue with this post and successfully miss the entire point.
