jevena asked: Yo, in that image Bolivia is whitewashed too. Another thingy, it seems that people believe that down here in s. america we only speak spanish o_o (brazil aside, of course.) Guaraní & Quechua got over 10m speakers each and Aymará over 2m.(those are the one with the most speakers, Bolivia alone has 37 official languages!!!.) And it's common to hear those on the streets even on places where they are not official. And no oc of those nations mention that, it because native stuff is not cute~desu? ._
The piece that I think is being referred to here is this piece. I apologise if I missed pointing out any OC that was whitewashed, but a good majority of those OCs were whitewashed.
Many OC creators do not realise that there are nations in South America that do not speak Spanish, and even fewer realise that other languages exist, so there there really isn’t much attention paid to those languages, sadly. I would like to see nation-tans whose creators have incorporated other languages into profiles, though. I think it would add a great layer of depth to an OC, and that it would show that the OC creator really did his/her research.
