Okay so like. Here’s the thing Night Vale fans should be doing.

Stop pretending the Night Vale fandom has any potential of becoming a safe space, ever. Stop pretending it is one. Stop pretending it can ever be one. Stop pretending that pockets of safe spaces can exist in this all- scorching, all-burning hellhole. Don’t let folks of color let their guard down. Come up and front with the announcement this fandom is fucking OVERRUN with racists. It’s not only extremely difficult to make a safe space on the internet operate in any capacity on a platform like tumblr (where the community is tag-based and unmoderated), this false notion only serves for the whites present in the fandom to backpat themselves over some bizarre notion of creating an inclusive space. While other whites, usually in droves, dive right into said safe space and start shitting and pecking at all and sundry. Don’t let folks of color get their guard down. Come up and front and tell them this fandom is notorious for drumming out people of color, tell them this fandom is notorious for whitewashing characters of color, tell them this fandom has a history for sending people of color violent death threats and goading them into suicide for talking up about racism. Let them know exactly what kind of space they will be participating in because their emotional and psychological safety is worth so much more than your white-ass self-congratulatory “safe space” nonsense. Tell them blogs have been made to silence people of color, one of them named white-cecil-only. Tell the queer people of color that a blog called fucknocecilos exists, the mod of which uses racist slurs in addition. Come up and front and tell them they will be participating in a fandom that finds every wiggle room to whitewash, silence, dismiss, threaten death to and belittle people of color, and if they ask you how that’s even possible with a progressive canon such as Welcome to Night Vale remind them that it’s exactly like reading the comments on a progressive and popular article.

No, better yet, remind them that sometimes media is created that caters to and is inclusive of a particular audience or demographic and the very opposite decides to hijack the shit out of it for their own ends.

Like racists dicking all over WtNV. Or you know, bronies. They should be familiar with bronies.

This is what you should be doing, unless you’re too busy being complicit and enjoy the false sense of security and heightened sense of grandstanding this fandom offers you. Because tackling this situation is obviously going nowhere and the number of people being vocal about this rampant problem of racism is only growing smaller in numbers by the day. Either get your shit together and sort this nonsense out and COLLECT YOUR TRASH AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY POSSIBLE or don’t expect people of color to be placated with your half-assed liberal activist nonsense and don’t lead them into letting their guard down.
