I'm also not sure why it was previously tagged suggestive. I chose not to add a 2016 US Presidential Election tag because this image can work as a generic mouthpiece reaction image on any future mouthpiece images. It's not like BLM will be the last time people make low-effort mouthpiece images in response to IRL events.

I find it very disappointing that many people take the phrase "Stop bringing politics into our [medium]" to mean we (as me and the people that I watch) don't want politics in our mediums AT ALL instead of actually meaning if a work doesn't bring up or address a political topic, don't bring it up in your discussion/review about it. (unless it's intentionally subtle like Violet from Ducktales and Lincoln Loud's best friend from Loud House having two dads, which is definitely a great thing by the way, then go all out). It is absolutely ok for any artists and fan artists to make political statements in however way they want and it's not okay to deny them this right of freedom of expression. This is completely different from whenever somebody is inserting politics into something that never really addressed it, because at the very least the work is made, from the ground up, meant to be political.

Here's a good example of inserting politics into something that never meant to be interpreted as that way. Tirek and Queen Chrysalis are black colored and in the series finale they are punished big time after their final battle with the Mane 6 (hopefully this is vague enough to not be too spoilerific). A person can interpret this that those obviously evil bad guys represent my black race and accuse the main show of promoting racism of by claiming that the show justifies punishing black people and radicalizing others to believe that we aren't redeemable. If your first thought after reading that sentence is along the lines of "No, that's wrong," or "There's no way anyone would believe that about the show," well congratulations, that's what people like me who use the rhetoric of "Don't insert politics into our [medium]" are actually fighting against and you just joined us for that one second.

Alas, like in every group, there are extremists who take what the group represents and take things way too far and apparently in my sub set of group of "get politics out of our [medium]" take this to mean "Any [medium] and art should NOT be political" in which that kind of thought process is wrong. That is not what that phrase actually means and, again, it disappoints me that some people whole heartedly believe that. Heck, ironically if you guys believe that misinterpretation of that argument and follow it, then you're basically no better than what Blizzard did to Blitzchung, a Chinese Hearthstone Champion, who used politics in video games the right way (of many). He didn't take over an existing character and try to make their beliefs his, he didn't accuse the game he was playing of offending him, he took a moment in the gaming tournament, after he had won mind you, which was actually about him and not the game itself to voice his support for Human Rights that his tyrannical government is trying to take away, nothing more, nothing less. Blizzard's reaction to his moment, which is to ban him, is completely and utterly wrong and then try to use my sub group's argument as a shield, and I understand Jim Sterling's hatred of that argument because the misinterpreted version of it allowed them to get away with it with little to no punishment. By making posts like these to say that ponies shouldn't be political is no different than what Blizzard did to this kid, essentially you guys are being the Blizzard to all of the other artists' political work.

That argument shouldn't be "NO! POLITICS! EEVEEERRRRR!!!!" (I wonder if someone will get that gaming joke) it should be "No making a political mountain out of a tiny or nonexistent anthill." But what all of these artists are doing is not the same thing that my argument group is fighting for. Not to mention the main show is over and it's not the same thing as looking over past episodes and trying to find something "problematic" and then changing the entire thing or getting rid of something. Remember when we all fought for Derpy's first speaking role and eventually they put her back in the episode along with a slightly upgraded voice (since Rarity's voice actor didn't know who she was when she was given that role), that's kind of the thing what my sub group is fighting for all mediums of art and your constant insistence that artists shouldn't make political fan art of ponies, is not that at all.

Look, what I want you guys to understand is that people should be free to make political art and they should also be free to make political works of art of other things. It's just that most of the time they suck because they're being shoehorned into a work rather than be its partner, which is completely different than what these artists are doing. They are making these kinds of art from the ground up and are not claiming that the characters' personality in there are canon, for the most part. But then again that's the joy when it comes to fan art and the different universes that they come from, like that Crossed universe one that is pure nightmare fuel. Anyway, not everything is canon and what these are artists are doing are just standing up for my race and others who lived with them that had gone through huge a tragedy and it's their way to support them. It's also Derpibooru's own decision as a platform to decide which art they would allow and let's be honest a drawing of zebras being rioters, is not only poor taste, but also political especially since the rioters are different from the protesters. If you think that should be allowed back after all this, then you're a huge hypocrite.

Either way, trying to insist that fan artists shouldn't use ponies for their political stances, is not the same argument of "get politics out of our [medium]" and you're just being the extremist version of this. And just to even things out a little bit, I will point out that there is extremism in the ones who making the political statements and is almost as simple as yours, basically anyone who disagrees with them or say "calm down let's try to hear both sides" is automatically a Nazi in their eyes and decides to ignore them or ruin them is just as dangerous as "no politics ever." Especially if it's their real friends (they actually hang out and talk to each other) they put the label on for this simple slight. Ironically both of these extremist ideals are the opposite of friendship and will divide people more than help them get closer and grow up as people or like what happens later in the show redeem themselves.

PS. Look I'm not trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement or trying to "radicalize" people, I'm trying to get the OP and the others to not be so extreme with the whole don't involve ponies in politics and that there is a time and place for politics and fan art always have time for politics. But what matters is that there's time enough for the OP to find this post and I ask that if someone plans on deleting this please give this post 24 hours for it to be noticed by the OP.

Wait, is that what this is about? Heh, turns out my "hide all BP comments" tweak works a little too well. Certainly makes the site a lot more tolerable.

Here I was wondering why this had the BLM tag on it at all.

Edit: Oh, for those who want it

I particularly loved the bit where the person who made this ignored literally all relevant requests the original artist made on how to share it and completely failed to credit the piece.

What I actually meant what basically just people here, because this is where everything is happening for the brony fandom and MLP related issues. I'm not talking about the actual police departments, the news stations or every the common person on the street, no I'm talking about the common user in the comment section of images and on the forums.
Frankly, I don't care about those other places, this here is what concerns me as I type. If I watch the news, then the various news station would be my main concern. If I were to interact with any police officers then I might care about how black are treated, though, I'm not black, so as long as the treat me with the respect I feel I'm entitled to, it's fin. Blacks are the one who should care a great deal about how blacks are treated. That's their people, but they're not mine.

TL:DR — I'm talking about users' reactions on Derpibooru, nowhere else. That's a completely different issue.

Its funny how someone(anyone) takes a character from a kids show to hold a flag of any side of the war, just because…
And other people think thats right and other people think its wrong, and they keep fighting.
