Black Lives Matter.

This should not be a controversial statement, and yet, here we are.

From June 1st 2020 to December 31st 2020 all profits from Spooky Sparkle Party will be donated towards Bail and Healthcare Funds for protesters in the states, and LGBTQ+, Black, and Indigenous charities here in Canada. For June I will be focusing on the many publicized funds posted asking for donations to ongoing protests. Each month after I will take suggestions for which additional charities to add to my donations roster. I will pay special attention to orgs that center black, indigenous, trans, and LGBTQ+ people.

Spooky Sparkle Party would not exist if not for the efforts of Dolly Momoiro, the black woman who organizes Toronto Harajuku Style. Without the events she organizes I never would have gotten the push to realize Spooky Sparkle Party as a brand.

This is not a tokenistic statement meant to gain your business, or overshadow existing black excellence within the j-fashion community. I am simply announcing that this is happening. Please make sure to check out these black-owned J-fashion brands and put your kawaii dollar-dollars directly into the hands of black creators.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why are you suddenly getting political?
The very existence of Spooky Sparkle Party is political. I am a fat brand made by a queer fat woman for other fat people to not feel as marginalized within a niche fashion community that has rampant sizeism and racism in its online spaces. It is simply not enough to showcase beautiful black people in my clothing and hope folks will get the hint that black people are human beings who deserve basic human rights and respect. The time for niceness and subtlety are over. Black people belong in lolita, j-fashion, and kawaii culture. Black people are important to our community. Period.
~~~
Isn’t that only a problem in America?
While white Canadians often feel smug that we “don’t have that kind of a problem in Canada” (see both Ford and Trudea's speeches earlier this week) we completely overlook the murder of black and first nations people that are ongoing in our own backyard. We barely talk about how Canada treats its native and black populations both now, and in the past. Without much of an ongoing dialogue about how we've hurt our black and native communities in the past we can’t see the patterns of our failings. We can’t fix problems we refuse to acknowledge.

We can, and must do better moving forward.
~~~
But all lives matter!
Please sit in the discomfort of this dissonance for a moment and listen. All lives do matter, but only black lives are treated like they don’t. At the end of every “Black Lives Matter” is a silent “too”. Black Lives Matter too. We see time and time again in Canada and the US that institutions, and individuals do not believe this to be the case. In many instances black people are not treated like humans. They are not treated like their lives have value. Black people are humans, and their lives matter. They, as humans, should not have to live in constant fear that someone will kill them for simply existing.

As white people our silence and complacency on the matter is deafening. It is suffocating for us to be so indifferent to the frankly devastating lived experiences of our friends and neighbours who have been screaming at us for years to give a shit about what’s happening to them.
