Black goth here. I've had to deal with plenty of "scene" racism but to be fair, it's not any worse than the regular racism I get from white ppl outside the scene! *uncomfortable trailing laughter* No seriously goths engage in a lot of cultural appropriation, including your faves.

Sorry to hear that. :-(

On Strange Fruit…

oddmodout replied to your post “also just a random thought the videos for Dominion and Lucretia by Sisters of Mercy are kinda edging on racist. I.e they use poor people of colour as props and background scenery in both those videos.”

Also, “Strange Fruit” may have been made famous by a Black woman (Billie Holiday) but it was written by a white Jewish man.

True!

Still, he wrote it as a poem in protest of lynchings in the South. He was an American taking a stand at a time long before the civil rights movement of the 1960s had made a space for discussing any racial issues, no matter how blatantly wrong. 

He was a Jewish Communist born to Russian Immigrant parents in the 1930s, when he wrote this song, so he has some empathy with people being persecuted. He was actually called before a federal investigative committee who questioned him about writing the song to undermine the American government. (So was Holiday.)

Man, I took a long LONG time to answer this because it touches on something I think about a lot. Sorry, afabulousgenderqueer.

There are three prominent types of racism in the Goth Community:

(1)The borderline culturally inclusive/culturally yoinking-from
(2) The “Hey I like minorities! I am one as a Goth AND kinky person DID I TELL YOU HOW OPPRESSED I AM AS AN ATHIEST?!”
(3) The old fashioned, steadfast and putrid, “but Goth is fer white ppl”

I saw your post on fashion, and in spite of your advice to avoid certain inspiration pages, I have to say that you just gave candy to a diabetic. Good, healthy examples for inspiration will be Sarah Palin, or any female modern country singer. Tiny shorts and hot weather. You couldnt get any classier. Only if you get a pearl necklace, then yes, classier and classier.

Good point!

You’re certainly right to specify “modern” country singers. Old country artists used to wear a lot of black and sing about really depressing shit.

But now they sing about how COUNTRY they are and scream in designer clothing from their hydrolic hemi quad cab at you to stop judging their  old fashioned values with your pricey latte, your school-learning, and your fancy bicycle.

Will you PLEASE leave these simple country folk alone?!

If your mother stops halfway through the question "do you have anything to wear to the funeral?" and just trails off, shakes her head and laughs... you're probably too gothic, right?

Back when I was a little snarkling my mom asked me to keep a rosary on me, and then when she saw me wearing it she said, “Oh! You can make anything look Gothic!" No, that’s just my face…

But to answer your question, YES! You might be too Gothic.
