Anonymous asked: Korra is not tan. Korra is not honey-coloured, and she is also not caramel. Yet at the same time, Korra is not brown. She’s Water Tribe, one of the only four ethnicities in the Avatar-verse. Arguing otherwise, I ask you to go out into the real world and find POC with naturally bright blue eyes.
THEY’RE SO PRETTY
And those people are BROWN asians!
Damn. Apperently asians can’t be brown.
As for POC with blue eyes.
BASK IN YOUR WRONG!
and an Asian woman
…can we also talk about what kind of super logic fail it is to say that Korra isn’t brown because she’s a fictional ethnicity?
Yes, she is a fictional Ethnicity. Of people whose skin is BROWN. Because Brown is a color on the visible spectrum of light. And people of the water tribe typically have skin that is brown.
Yes we can! The logic is that for racists, “brown people” means “inferior” and no way do they want to think Korra is inferior like these actual brown people in our planet, so she’s not “brown” as in she’s not “brown like Asians and Black peoples.” So she’s WATER TRIIIIIIIBE so racists can reconcile liking her while not admitting that maybe, actual brown people can also be cool and not inferior just like Korra.
