And For Something Somewhat Completely New

I would have thought that my first blog post back from my lazy hiatus would be about an interesting storyline I was in back in February, not that Hioshi Jackson fucker.  What I am going to discuss is how my opinion on something that was hotly discussed in the black cosplay community, got me called out, lost friends, and in the end, I stopped caring because it’s less toxic people in my life.  Plus I want to address the situation too.  Normally I’d just ignore it and move on with more important things in my life, but I just want to say a few things and move on.  I’m also shutting off comments, because I feel this will be last I speak on this subject.

And now, let’s talk 28 Days of Black Cosplay, Part Deux!

BTW, the main reason as to why I’m bringing this up is because of a couple of Facebook groups I was in wanted to know why.

For the rest asking, here’s what happened…

Guilty Until Proven Innocent

I wasn’t sure if I was going to comment on this, but I feel like I need to say something, because I have been through something similar.  It sucks that we live in a world where we are quick to judge people on their crimes.  You can be the greatest person, make one mistake, and everyone is ready to air your dirty laundry.  And what if the mistake was fabricated?  Welp, the damage has been done.  So here’s the thing… Two weeks ago a friend of mine in the voice acting industry was accused of rape.
