You know what one of my favorite things about the Pony fandom is? Ponies of Color.
I actually find myself getting rather annoyed when someone draws ALL the ponies as humanized white people. The fact that we have so many artists who draw the mane 6, and other ponies, as a diverse group of women really really makes me happy.
I get rather confused now when someone draws Twilight as white. She’s pretty ingrained as black in my head. XD
