(This is my attempting to understand your POV better): So for the post about whitewashing, if I, a white person, were to cosplay as someone like Dean Thomas, a black male in the HP movies (Maybe books. I don't know of the top of my head), would that be considered whitewashing? Cho Chang? What if it is reversed. Say a PoC portraying someone like Harry, who in the movies is white? Thanks! Please note that again this is me trying to learn different POV and perspectives of things.
KP: I DON’T KNOW HOW TO SAY THIS ANY OTHER WAY
WHITE PEOPLE CAN NOT PLAY POC
POC CAN PLAY WHITE PEOPLE
WHITE PEOPLE ARE NOT OPPRESSED
A WHITE PERSON CAN NOT PLAY A POC CHARACTER
POC PEOPLE HAVE BEEN AND CONTINUE TO BE OPPRESSED AND THEY HAVE EARNED THE RIGHT TO PLAY WHOEVER THE FUCK THEY WANT
YOU CANT PLAY A POC AS A WHITE PERSON AND NO ONE HERE CARES ABOUT YOUR WHITE TEARS ON THE MATTER.
