Ignorant white woman here– Incest is gross, but I am genuinely clueless about why an incest ship would be racist.

I included those ships in the bingo card because of the utter disrespect behind them. Disrespect to Black fans who’ve made posts asking folks not to write those kinds of stories and to the characters themselves.

In order to get Erik with Shuri or T’challa, you have to rewrite all of these characters. You basically have to wipe them of the very things that make them THEM. I mean… It’s not as airtight as some of the other things on the list because a lot of people straight up don’t see “doing a thing black people have asked you not to do” as racist, but I feel like it counts.
