Hello, I'm Pastell and I act younger than I am :iconyuiswayplz:

And no, I don't really have a thousand deviations. It's a glitch I think :/

I've been thinking this for a while, and I recently saw a post on tumblr that shared the same thoughts as me and I couldn't help but agree.

In RWBY, Faunuses (people with animal ears/tail) are oppressed and discriminated against because they have a bad reputation. Blake Belladonna is a Faunus.

Blake's oppression as a faunus is a great, great metaphor for racism. It's the concept of racism, except put in the context of fantasy to make it "friendlier" while still giving the same message. It's a great metaphor for Blake's blackness and the hardships that come from it...

But the thing is, they didn't make Blake black.

I honestly believe that the message would've meant more if Blake were black. Of course they wouldn't randomly bring up anti-black racism in a show like RWBY, but the Faunus metaphor would've been a good allusion to Blake's blackness and the truth about racism--it still goes on, and it effects black people. If people don't get this at first, they're bound to read some analysises that will correlate Blake's oppression with the true hidden meaning of Blake being discriminated due to being black. People could've been educated from this issue being presented in a fantasy/metaphoric way.

So yeah. I headcanon that Blake is black. I headcanon that the show just doesn't show it.

From now on, I'll draw Blake black and with poofy hair. I honestly really support this.
