So in response to an anon I got last night, this post is going directly to @taylorswift herself and I hope that you guys would be willing to share so that she may see it:

Taylor,

It should go without saying that we as your POC fans are all very grateful for speaking out and giving you have done towards to worthy causes (sick fans, fallen police officers, gun violence, LGBTQ community, etc). However, in the wake of a very violent world, especially against POCs, the silence you have shown towards your POC fans hurts.

Perhaps this is all in an effort to let the black voices in music speak on these issues, which I am 100% okay with. But without saying it explicitly, you are leaving a lot of things up for speculation that shouldn’t be. It should be clear on where you stand when it comes to POCs. We are not a political issue, we are a group of people who need support and allyship.

I ask that you use your platform to support us as your POC fans so that we know that when things are tough (police shootings against black people, microaggressions, hate crimes, demonization of people of color, etc) that you will have our back and be someone we can look up to. Your voice as a pop icon is very powerful, which I’m sure you know. And I know during the break you were scared to talk to anyone about anything for fear of backlash. But I’m here to tell you that we are a cause worth fighting for and I hope you would believe that too.

(I know I don’t speak for the whole community, so if anyone has anything to add, please feel free. These are just the main points I want to get across. Thanks)
