So I personally see Hermione as white or light skinned, and James as white, too. Now I don't care if anyone else sees them as black, if fact I support it! I just personally don't headcanon them as black. I'm not trying to hate or anything I just wanted to share me view and see what you thought of it, if that's okay.
i feel like i’m going to state the obvious here, but just to make it clear: you see them as white? that’s ok. you’re fancasting white people for them? alright. you’re drawing fanarts with white harry, james and hermione? cool! since their skin colour was never specified, i have absolutely no problem with people picturing them as white. knock yourself out, have fun, produce your own content! i certainly won’t criticize you for it.
my only beef is with people who feel the need to harass others for headcanoning these characters as pocs. feeling the need to FORBID others from drawing the characters as non-white - that’s a problem. trying to prove to me that they HAVE TO be white, because you can’t handle a random person on the internet drawing a black hermione - that’s a problem. and i promise you, this happens a lot. nearly every artist i follow who’s had a picture of dark-skinned hermione (or harry, james, sirius, lily, anyone who was white in the movies pretty much) had to go through these arguments.
