For all of the problems it can cause, I still really love roleplaying. Without it, I would’ve never met some wonderful people.

Cornell William Brooks, NAACP National President, in light of the Michael Brown murder
I just heard this on CNN, and I think this is important to remember, especially for some people on tumblr. When we say “hate breeds hate” and “don’t fight fire with fire” we aren’t “silencing the grievances of the oppressed”, we’re saying that it’s foolish to act as if inciting the same vitriol and aggressiveness as the people you claim to be against will solve anything, because it solves nothing.
Be constructive in your arguments and actions, be logical, be level-headed, and people will take you seriously.
Being unapologetically bitter and conceited will only make the people you’re advocating against feel justified in their actions, and when others see that you’re acting just like your opponents they won’t see the point of siding with you.
