Meme-Ing For A Reason #9 – Spare Some Oppression, Please?

Meme-Ing For A Reason #8 – Hello, CIA? I’d Like To Report Some Anti-Racism In Fandom, Thanks

Meme-ing For A Reason #7 – You’re Out of Touch, Much

Meme-ing For a Reason #2 – Blaming “Antis”: Easier Than Speaking Up Against Racism, I Guess…

Anyone telling you that you have to accept racism in fandom as a price to pay for “sticking it to antis” or that you need to defend or ignore racism in fandom/fan-made content in order to prove you’re somehow “anti censorship” is someone trying to get you to defend racism as part of fandom.
