What You Can Do

Recognize that the entertainment industry still discriminates against artists of color in the 21st century.

Support artists of color and movies and television shows with fair hiring practices and diverse casts.

Boycott and protest movies and television shows that ‘racebend’ or otherwise limit opportunities for artists of color and other underrepresented populations.

Because of BlackLava’s close relationship with Asian-American causes, Racebending receives a full 100% of proceeds from all shirt sales. Funds are needed to maintain the web-site, purchase booth space at conventions, promotional material for distribution (fliers and flair), and further shirt printings.

Shirts are available in Yellow and Blue. Right now the shirts are available for just $20, free shipping.
