“Right now, shows that are accused of being too whitewashed have this defensive tactic in which they respond with, ‘I didn’t even think about that; it didn’t even occur to me.’ So, instead of using your intelligence to escape culpability, use it to consider the framework from which you speak. I could talk about this all day; it really pisses me off. It’s not an easy topic to talk about. You have to take ego out of it to talk about it in an intelligent way, and that’s hard to do about anything.” Constance Wu, from an interview by Alex Wong for GQ.

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

  • White Person:*watches Family Guy, South Park and other shows that constantly have a white protagonist make racially stereotypical jokes* "You don't get it, they are just pointing it out, they don't believe in that stuff, it's for laughs. "
  • White Person:*watches Blackish and Fresh Off The Boat where POC characters express their frustrations in a world catered for white people* "Uh white people are portrayed in a very negative light here, I'm so offended. We need more positive white characters."
