So I’m probably going to get hate for saying this but tbh I don’t care about the skin color of TV characters or movie characters. At all.
I don’t friggin care about “whitewashing”
I don’t care if the entire cast is black
I don’t care if the entire cast is white
I don’t care if the entire cast is purple with polkadots made out of the friggin color from H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space”
LISTEN: You don’t need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to relate to them.
You do not need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to enjoy them.
And believe me, I know. I’m not black and yet there are some black characters whom I really relate to and enjoy.
Case in point? Iris West from CW’s The Flash. For the first season I was kinda neutral towards her, but when she landed a journalistic job and became more aware of Barry’s feelings towards her I really started to grow attached. I’m a journalistic writer like Iris, I’ve got two siblings like Iris, I’m here for emotional support like Iris, if my brother/boyfriend was a superhero I’d probably run around getting myself into trouble like Iris, too. #IrisWestIsTheNextLoisLane
My point is that you don’t have to have the same skin color as someone to be able to relate to them!
My point is that skin color doesn’t matter because we’re all humans. People of every ethnicity go through the same struggles, such as:
Vanity & Pride
Yeah basically all the 7 deadly sins
I could go on but I think y’all get the point.
I just can’t see any reason for why we need to have exactly 25% black characters and 25% Asian characters and 25% Muslim characters and–
like, for the love of Dormammu I don’t care, just give me a compelling character who’s going through a relatable struggle
I can understand why it would matter if you’re trying to make a film that focuses specifically on racism, or the Holocaust, or oppression as a key theme. Then I can understand why casting and skin color matters.
But the vast majority of entertainment are about superheroes and ninja turtles and starship captains and elves and teenage drama and adult drama. Most of these shows and movies take place in privileged America where your biggest dilemma is the fact that they took Doctor Who off of Netflix, not the fact that you fear getting shot in the streets because of your skin color.
To clarify: I’m not against having a diverse cast. I’m not saying that we should just turn a blind eye to racism. I’m not saying hate crimes don’t happen in America.
What I’m saying is that if you really want to make a change, focus less on entertainment (which you are so very privileged to receive in the first place) and more on the REAL issues in the world, like the fact that people are dying for being LGBT, women are being raped. Stop complaining about how some dumb TV show didn’t cast enough black people and try doing something substantial for once. Go out and join a club that actually raises funds to help people or something.
I feel like we’re getting worked up over all the wrong things.
okay, stop whining about the album having only 4 new tracks. do you know that some idols’ repackage album only has 2 new songs, a few instrumentals and tons of remixes? i’ve been a kpop fan since 2009 and BTS has never disappoint me with their album releases unlike other idol groups that i followed before.
so just chill and wait to have our mind blown with their 4 new tracks okay. also, namjoon is teasing fans on vlive chat about which song will be the title track: Not Today or Bomnal (Spring Day)? thanks for making us excited nams.
psst…did you notice that 2!3! is 6 seconds longer in ynwa?
this man was beautiful inside and out, and put so many smiles on peoples faces as well as making millions cry. thank you for everything that you gave to us Michael, may your legacy live on forever. 1958-2009

I feel like I’m the only one who’s happy about Roman winning the title. Everywhere I look, people keep saying how he doesn’t deserve it and how the WWE is just getting worse. Why must people have to do that?! He’s worked so goddamn hard and in my eyes, he truly deserves to be where he is. He’s been screwed over time and time again for the last year and he’s overcome it all. I’m not saying he’s an underdog or anything like that, I’m saying that he’s a very talented wrestler and people really need to stop crapping over all his hard work that’s got him where he is. Congratulations Roman Reigns on your WWE World Heavyweight Championship win, I’m proud to be a member of the Roman Empire.
