|Ignorance puts words in other people's mouths.|
Sometimes just a character in general, fictional or non-fictional.
There is a lot of ignorance in the anime fan subculture. Blacks are forced to accept their differences in order to enjoy being a part of the fandom.
They are rarely treated as viable members; the beautiful white american female always winning competitions.
Hear me out.
There's no difference between a "Black" Link and a "White" Link.
The only difference is the person who's playing them.
This is a Black anime fan playing the role of Link.
If this cosplayer truly wants to play the role of "Black Link", he would've added something stereotypical to the costume.
See it as a whole, see it in wider lens: the skin color, the body mass, the race, the gender, is NOT a part of the costume.
In other news: Damn, he looks fineeeeee.
