“With the aurora borealis flaming coldly overhead, or the stars leaping in the frost dance, and the land numb and frozen under its pall of snow, this song of the huskies might have been the defiance of life, only it was pitched in minor key, with long-drawn wailings and half-sobs, and was more the pleading of life, the articulate travail of existence. It was an old song, old as the breed itself–one of the first songs of the younger world in a day when songs were sad.” ― Jack London
To be honest, the whole Blake vs Weiss racism drama was developed and resolved so badly it hurts. It was completly rushed and wasted.
Not only Weiss never really stopped being this racist douchebag, because lets be honest most of her racism is learned and unlearning that requires a lot of personal developement we never saw (because she became Miles’ weird mix of romantic hatesink). It was all over in an instant, the moment she did her shitty tsundere ‘’apology’‘, everyone forgot that Weiss is a racist, classist asshole.
But also it missed a giganton of potential on making Ruby (and Yang) have an actual opinion on this drama. Specially for MAIN CHARACTER Ruby, making her be 100% on Blake’s side (instead of the bland, apathic ‘’uhhhhh idk lets find blek’’) could have given her a lot of characterization as the ‘‘noble small soul’‘ that Salem speaks about, interactions with Blake (which she doesnt have since the first episode) and conflict with her supposed partner Weiss.
Then again, its Rooster ‘‘We will use racism as a cheap plot device but we are too mediocre and cowardly to actually do it in a non-offensive manner’‘ Teeth we are talking about.
