When I was a little kid I used to want to be white so I could go on adventures because I believed only white kids could go on adventures. That’s what media taught me anyways.
So I wasn’t the only kid who thought this! And no this isn’t a “we need more black people so throw in a random token black character” NO. We want a good role model. I’m tired of people saying we shouldn’t complain cause there is ONE POC in a film or story. Why can’t we have characters too?
Exactly and how when a film is majority black or another POC it’s a ” race themed film”. but majority white is what? A normal film?
We need representation and we need to be seen as equals in the media.
Not having damn near full riots break out over black characters being cast as FICTIONAL characters who people feel SHOULD BE WHITE.
