You can make a difference in your community and help build a better society for our kids if you change your art, and aggressively portray your characters and graphic illustrations/random people as PREDOMINANTLY BLACK. The world has been whitewashed long enough. Let’s reverse this. I want to see black babies on baby shower cards, black people in illustrations and storybooks. IF YOU ARE GIVEN AN ILLUSTRATION ASSIGNMENT and the person does not IMPLICITLY STATE that they want a white character, MAKE THEM BLACK. If the person ordering the design bitches, and says they don’t want a black character, look them in the eye and ask them at a slightly higher volume than usual, WHY NOT? DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BLACK PEOPLE? This of course doesn't go for existing OCs, but as far as random characters are concerned, PAINT THEM BLACK.
Let's teach our kids that default or ''normal'' skin color is NOT WHITE. Even if we lose some customers, think of all the ones we will gain, and think of how the tiny kids what are growing up right now will be treated better by their peers, instead of treated as substandard people.
Invent black superheroes, protagonists, powerful figures and princesses. It's not right that half the kids there are think they can never be a superhero or a snow queen because of their skin color.
EDIT: of COURSE it's fine to make your characters any skin color you want, but if you don't want to perpetuate the problem, we definitely need more black exposure to get rid of the whole 'Normal is white, everything else is an alien with blue fur' problem that exists. I'm not talking about your personal OCS (although you should consider why you DON'T have any black art in your gallery) but I am specifically referring to art that reaches a wide audience, especially art that is intended to portray 'Typical' or 'ideal' people. 'White' needs to stop being synonymous with 'perfect,' because it implies that anything else is 'flawed.'
