whitergent

I will fan cast however the fuck i want  personally i didn’t picture four as mix raced, so i am not going to change my fan cast to please you. it’s a book. So obviously people will interpret things differently, as you are not told the exact skin color a person has or the color of their eyes, or their hair color! It’s a different story completely if you take ATLA for example, katara was brown and they made her white in the movie. But Zuko was white and they used an indian actor to play him in the movie and nobody is mentioning that, they swapped it around.
The difference is you have a clear picture of what they look like, so you’re not picturing them from a description you’ve read.  that is whitewashing. i didn’t think Molly was black and i always imagined christina to have a skin tone just a bit darker then kat graham. i will always probably see them that way.

sometimes i wish i just stayed oblivious to the whitewashing in fandom

if it hadn’t been for the fact that the animorphs books had designated models  as the characters on the covers of the books, we would be seeing fan casts of some fucking white kids as marco and cassie, i swear to god

like, do people not have reading comprehension skills or something? they just lalalala over the descriptions of a character’s skin color and pour on the bleach?

1)Just because someone pictured a white actress to play a character that was described to have dark skin, does not mean that they are part of the fricken kkk. 

2)They are FICTIONAL characters. 

3)Get a life

4)name one movie where appearance came before acting skills. Obviously this person chose these actors because they don’t suck.

5)your name is fucking whitergent therefore your opinion is invalid you dumb twat.

Apparently I'm an idiot because I don't 'realise how under represented PoC are in the media'.
  • Of course I do
  • Did I ever said I didn’t
  • I don’t control the media, do I?
  • equality > everything
  • who even are you
  • maybe some people are chosen because they are just better actors, acting abilities > race
  • not everyone is racist who imagines a black character as white
  • that would make it racist if someone imagines a white character as black
  • apparently not to whitergent because racism only affects PoC doesn’t it
  • lolno
  • whatevs
  • shove your opinions in the trash

Wasp:

  1. Whitewashing is racist.
  2. It’s still offensive to real life PoC when they aren’t represented in books. 
  3. Stfu.
  4. OH MY FUCKING GOD ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID HOW OFTEN DO YOU SEE POC IN SIGNIFICANT ROLES. NEVER.
  5. You are too stupid. We are aware of what this blog is called wanker.

1: It’s a damn fancast you dumb fucks. 

2: If you’re getting offended because of the way someone pictured a few imaginary character, I suggest you get a life. Maybe seek out some counselling.

3: maybe you should have named your blog something other than whitergent before accusing others of being racist dumbass.

4: That’s pretty much it, I would go off on a rant right here but I’m too busy getting your blog deleted. cao’ cunts.
