Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.
Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it.
"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time."
(also disabilities or social anxieties, not being where the chaos is happening, etc) but idk why you guys act like tumblr activists never go to protests. A lot of us do, we’re actually more likely to. We jus realize that spreading awareness on this platform is needed to further efforts, thats the point of protests to not only to get attention of ppl in charge but to spread awareness. If u honestly are more concerned w oppressor feelings rather than gettin out info about the oppressed, OP you are in no way either activists. Plus “make love not war” is the corniest overused shit and i feel like u’ve either never been to a recent protest or only been to a white one rioting over “why is my water so spicy !!!” finally, often posts like “white people ruin everything” are jus rants from frustrated poc since this is a blogging site and also a safe place. We are in fact oppressed by whites and those posts arent harming anyone bc whites are so highly privileged. Quit bein a punk.
