We already have #DisabilityTooWhite for the disability community as a whole dealing with why there no representation of disabled POC. Now, we need a hashtag for #ActuallyAutistic community and the new hashtag is #AutismTooWhite. Yes I said it- Autism is damn white. /1
We need to fix this problem right now. The image of autism need to change and have to reflex the REAL diversity in the autistic community. If you know autism affect everyone, you know you have to represent everyone within the community and not the majority of the community. /2
It is not fair at all to leave out #ActuallyAutistic POC of the conversation. We need to do better. We cannot let the image of autism continues to dominate the media and conversations. All of you could see is autistic white males. This is the stereotype still exists today. /3
I am sick of tired of ignorant people come in my thread and say I am divisive and a racist. What?! I try to bring an issue that already existed before me that I decided I want to become an activist ok. I am sick of tired of telling ignorant people this and that is offensive to /4
Autistic POC. I learned something from @kerima_cevik about one thing. I don't have to continue to educating ignorant people why it is offensive to marginalized communities whatever it is racism, sexism, ableism, and other discrimination. I don't want to explain myself to those /5
People anymore. I want to say that I want to say and keep on moving.

If anyone don't like what I have to say about we need to represent Autistic POC, you have to unfollow me now. I want to ask you something is what side of history you want to be on.

Have a good day. /6
