2012 Holi Festival of Colors at Spanish Fork, Utah.
Yeah, I did notice the absence of PoC. Still, this is an awesome idea. It would be super fun while on LSD.
It’s a holy festival dude. Not for drugs, not for people who aint Hindu.
And this is why we can’t have nice things. Because of entitled brats who think it’s all theirs, all the time, just for the having, in any way they like.
It particularly hurts in the case of Holi, which is a festival I would LIKE to share with others; but when so many of them think “share” means “grab and mangle”, it’s just not possible.
It’s like if I bake a cake, and there’s no fun in eating cake alone, and I want to share it with some friends, and some stranger waltzes in, goes OH HEY CAKE THAT WOULD BE AWESOME WITH LSD, smooshes their fist into it, grabs a handful while reducing the rest to a mess, and smears it all over their face, and goes “Well you were going to share, right?”
It just gets to the point where it’s less painful not to have cake.
^This is an excellent metaphor.
Ha, agreed, great analogy.
It’s not like they couldn’t have gotten away with just calling it a paint fight or something but noooo it’s not *fun* and *quirky* and *free-spirited* unless they’re appropriating
fucking boring douchey white people
no fuck it i am reblogging this again and with hate
seriously what the fuck is up with white people and their creepy habit of stealing aspects of our faith and culture and then turn it into drug induced bullshit
you don’t give a shit about Hindus when we want more presence in society
you laugh at us and belittle us when we talk about want some more public acknowledgement of our faith
you don’t allow us to facilitate spaces where we can understand our own faith
you’re not there for us when we’re discriminated against
you think we’re irrelevant when it comes to discussions on religion and philosophy
when shit looks bright and shiny to your pasty vision of the world, you fucking steal and disrespect it
all of you
reblogging for the comments
That awkward moment when you’re white and you don’t do drugs and your not out to harm or steal or offend anyone but your race is generalized as “white people” who do LSD and ruin everything.
Oops, sorry for being white and respecting all cultures and people. I was taught to respect all people with hope they’d respect me too but apparently not. Because apparently meaning I’m white means I’m a terrible person. Wow people who want respect to their cultures and want to break stereotypes are so quick to generalize an entire race of people because it’s only “white people.” “White people” aren’t the only ones who take from other cultures. “White people” aren’t represented by one group of “white people.” This just makes me so mad because I’m white and I respect everyone. Why are you trying to generalize who I am by the color of MY skin?
reblogging again just for this.^
