dark skin harry potter

It just occurred to me, as I’m going through the Harry Potter books again, that whenever Harry has visions through Voldemorts eyes that he always, every single time, distinguishes between himself and Voldemort with the mention of “a white hand held a wand which was not his own”, or something to the effect of describing Voldemorts whiteness. While I’ve always taken this as a comment on how Voldemort is inhumanly, disgustingly pale, It occurred to me that a dark-skinned Harry Potter WOULD notice the stark, shocking difference in hands every single time without fail.

Gorgeous fan art shows what Harry Potter characters would look like with dark skin 

Whiteness is usually the default in most of the literature we read in the West. That’s especially the case in children’s literature. When representation of other races isn’t prevalent, it’s usually up to readers to create them. And in the case of this art and Hermione, it may be more accurate than we think.
