I apologize if this comes off as disrespectful to Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin. Or their families. Or YOU, the reader. I’m not about that. That’s not why I drew this.
I am just really freaked out that 40% of Americans (and 47% of White Americans) do not think that the killings and violence in Ferguson ‘raise any racial issues.’ Fellow White Persons, this is our chance to learn. This is our chance to change.
When Trayvon Martin was murdered because Full Grown Men in America are frightened to violence by the presence black children, the dialogue turned very quickly into a conversation about gun control.
And gun control is an issue that deserves our attention.
But it won’t change the massive poverty in Black America. The arrest rate. The education statistics. The institutional, systemic, casual, and passive racism that plagues our country.
And it wouldn’t have saved Michael Brown.
Anyway. I’m sorry if this comes off as disrespectful or insincere or preachy. I’m sorry if my execution (or personality) gets in the way of what I’m trying to say. I am an imperfect artist, an imperfect person, and I am, undoubtedly, blinded to a million things by my own glaring whiteness. So this might be… Lord, this might be awful. I’m so sorry if it’s awful. Really.
But. I just keep thinking… Look, my wife is pregnant with our first child. A boy. We’re nervous, we’re excited, we’re SO ANXIOUS because what the hell do you do with babies? WE don’t know. But if we were a black family… in this country… we would be so terrified. Because we live in a nation that murders the children of black parents, puts it on the news WITH RIOTS AND TEAR GAS as decoration, and still half of us don’t even see it as a problem. Can you imagine that? Can you imagine bringing a child into that reality, to face the odds we lay out for black kids?
That would break me. I’ve never known anything like that. No one should ever know anything like that.
So let’s talk to our friends about race. Lets talk to our families. And when actual victims of racism try to tell us what’s going on in, say, a peaceful community protest as they are being gassed and shot at by cops WE SHOULD LISTEN TO AND BELIEVE THEM. Let’s talk to each other about this until we are all on the same page.
And then let’s turn the damn page.
I actually really needed to read this right now.

I don’t normally comment on this kind of thing here on my development blog, but it’s a close issue to me because soon I will be making my first professional game public and trying to make it with game development as a livelihood.
I wanted to reblog this but I don’t want the base post to keep getting more notes so I screencapped it instead. The link in above passage is located here. Please do not let Scott Cawthon become villainized by tumblr because of one person’s misinformation. Please read the linked message.
If you see anyone you know going along and actually believing this BS please take the time of day to correct them. Today someone’s promising career of professional artwork was unjustly attacked, both financially and even worse ethically. Please do not give permanence to this wide-scale hate campaign of a great developer for literally no reason, and please remember this site is a public forum where anything can blow up, and you should be careful when you say things that you did not personally research the veracity of.
Sorry this is part of your experience with tumblr so far Scott Cawthon. I swear there are rad people here.
