I'm pretty sure steven is actually coded or meant to be jewish and not white. And while I agree that any characters of color should be voiced by people of color I think it's great the gems who are the main characters of the show are voiced by people of color? I mean would you rather have them all voiced by white people?

What we COULD have is, for example, the Maheswarens voiced by South Asian actors, for one. Which they aren’t. 

But I agree with the Steven coded as Jewish thing. I do believe Rebecca Sugar confirmed he and Greg were both Jewish, but I’m not 100 percent on that.

And just for for future reference, I’m gonna be real honest rn, but I’m really bugged by this phrase:

“I mean would you rather have them all voiced by white people?”

And anon, this isn’t against you specifically and I’m not saying that you meant it in a malicious manner, but we frequently get this persistent claim that if we have a minor complaint about how something that does alright could be better (Steven Universe being the biggest thing we get flack for criticizing I stg), a lot of y’all jump in with “well WOULD YOU PREFER THEY BE LESS DIVERSE?” and it’s really actually kinda rude and derailing and just reads as passive aggressive.

Because we all have “problematic faves” but I’m not gonna be framed as unreasonable or demanding for stating that even the good stuff can do better.

Because Steven Universe can definitely do quite a bit better, especially after episodes like Fusion Cuisine, Bismuth, Gem Harvest, and Human Zoo.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
