But Some people are so caught in their view of the world that they can't see past it. They want the world to be like their vision. They say they are not racist but by bringing it up they prove they are.
This has gotten out of hand. I started a shit-storm before I bought a shovel, and I'm already knee-deep. Hit my Tumblr. There is a list there. Everyone below this post should be on it. You are the ones I have offended the most, and it is to you I will make amends. Until season two of MLP:FiM drops, seven days from now, I will be taking requests for free commissions (sketches, ghostwriting, and design). I'm not the best in the world, but it is all I can offer, aside from admitting my wrongdoing.
I should have worded that better. I was screwing around, and I realized now I should have used a little more tact. If i offended anyone (which I obviously have), or pissed anyone off (which is more than likely), sorry.
But, at the same time, I'm disappointed that several people, who I assume are decent folks judging by the indignation, felt the need to honor my (in hindsight, fucking retarded) post with a response.
Note: If the word retarded offends you, sorry, but this ^ has used up all of my give-a-damn.
BTW, for anyone who is wondering, I'm mixed Euro (German, Irish) and Roma. I'm only kinda white. 1/3 of my ancestry only ever gets represented as thieves and fortune tellers. I really am sorry if I pissed anyone off.
The "stupid hair" comment was poking fun at a stereotype in the area I live in, and I should have figured no-one would get it. The rest was badly worded, and I should have put more thought into it. My initial apology was also badly worded, as well as slightly combative. I was .annoyed, and I responded in annoyance. If people have an issue with me, or something I say, though, I would prefer it be communicated via PM, to keep it off the artists page.
...On what planet is this kind of comment acceptable? Really. I'm assuming you're white, which means you probably shouldn't be commenting on people being "obsessed with the whole diversity thing." I, personally, love the fact that so many people draw humanized ponies with differing ethnicities, because omg mine actually gets representation now and then.
