so apparently some racist asshole is spamming the #pocecil tag with pictures of white fucking cecil because they think white cecil is better and “more canon” and that because there’s more white cecils, they “win”. real classy. so have some pocecils k
the pocecil tag and its variants are supposed to be safe places for people who want to see cecils who aren’t white and those people are mostly poc themselves like me. this isn’t the first time assholes have deliberately spammed the tag; not too long ago, these fuckers were straight up comparing people of color to dogs and other ANIMALS. because even when they’re trying to be “funny”, it’s clear they think poc are less that human
as for their argument about how cecil MUST BE WHITE because his name sounds white WELL KIDDO white names have been forced on poc by fucking colonialists for centuries. poc have to change their names just for their own fucking safety to something “less foreign” so they won’t be turned away from jobs or made fun of or killed. hilarious. if you’re going be all obnoxious faux linguistic historian about it, why don’t you talk about forced assimilation? not to mention you’re just blatantly ignoring the existence of mixed race poc who could very realistically have names like cecil gershwin palmer i mean for god’s sake
basically: what an asshole

He knows there is no coming back from this, from the blasphemous act of stealing another angel’s grace; it is not his, it does not fit, it will burn him out from the inside, his vessel will slowly, painfully, inevitably, crack and fall apart; he is ready.
