""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///
(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)
And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blonde
And literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and such
So please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.
Boom de yada
Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”
so many beautiful people on this post
One more Egyptian vulture found poisoned in France
The League Pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO) announced last week that an adult Egyptian vulture found dead in the Pyrenees Atlantiques region in late June had been poisoned.
Toxicological analysis done revealed that the bird had ingested a forbidden insecticide (made illegal in 2008), already linked to a few previous cases of poisoning in 2009 and 2012.
The LPO believes that the Egyptian vulture was a victim of some poisoned bait laid out, or some animal that had died after consuming the poisoned bait.
France has only 95 pairs of Egyptian vulture, of which more than 70 in the French Pyrenees – it is actually the only country in Europe where this endangered species is slowly increasing, after considerable conservation effort
The LPO had pressed charges, and an investigation is on-going – the destruction of a protected species in France is liable to a fine of up to 15,000€ and a sentence of one year imprisonment. See the LPO press released below.
