to Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell And the countless other lives that have been taken away from this world due to prejudice.

At last, a new Revolutionary Times comic has arrived.

Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriationGreat to see a disney show deals with this topic.
As soon as I saw this my jaw dropped and I rushed to find a gif set. I’ve become so jaded of people being appropriative or defending it (interestingly enough, people outside of a culture seem to think they can decide whether they are appropriative or not, despite having limited knowledge and no authority…just based on their own interests I guess). I noticed the appropriation right away but didn’t think they would address it. I’m so happy they did, it makes me respect the show more, and I already like it and think that’s it’s reminiscent of Disney shows c.2004. This isn’t quite on the level of That’s so Raven addressing racism and sizism but it’s close.
Edit: It was also surprising because the whole episode was about Topanga and Cory’s daughter not being herself for popularity, so I really didn’t expect them to call out the appropriation.

Women firefighters douse flames during the Pearl Harbor attack.
Oh hay look women of colour were an integral part of the ‘cool’ part of history too, how about that. They were like. Doing stuff that supposedly only heroic white dudes had done. That makes women valid participants in collective history now, right? Right? This is in high school history books now, right? Right? Huh?
