The "Blendette" conversation
So recently on the bird app a discussion was started around the idea that the term "blendette" is inherently racist. This prompted a lot of black dbd players to chime in agreeing with the idea. I kind of wanted to gage what people in the forums thought and gain a bit of perspective.
I'm white so I don't have the perspective necessary for that racial lense. My thoughts though is that the term is just a byproduct of community memes that have persisted though the years. Jokes like blendette, meghead, baby Dwight, Nea being the entity have existed for literal years and it's weird to me this is being brought up now. I'm not saying it's not an issue but I am saying that the joke existed for a reason and I don't think it was intended with racial hate In mind because if it was that would mean the entire community is racist and that's just not true. I want to remind people to stay on topic and if this goes haywire I'll ask for the thread to be closed.
