Level 22 Art Lover

A while ago, I asked some parts of the internet "Why is everyone white?" It was a good while before #BlackLivesMatter, so I would say it's been over a year. A lot f the response I got was "I just don't think about it." Basically, no one was thinking about black people before #BlackLivesMatter.
However, since then, I've seen much more non-white people art, in general. Not just black people on my short scale Amercian level, but people have made Aficans, muslims, Indians, and all rainbows of black, brown, non-white, and interracial people. It's sad it took something like BLM to do it, but in cases like these any press is good press. It's surely put a much greater spot light on "white-washing" than anything else could've.
I feel like the internet has gotten much more real since I started seeing more brown skinned characters on most of my usually traveled art sites. I don't live in a place where only white people live, and I'm glad the interenet is also becoming the other side of that place. I like seeing black/ brown/ etc characters after so long of everyone being white, and it hurt that they only reason was "What even are black people?" We're becoming more accepting and less ignorant.
Thank you, interwebz.
