Republicans: OMG...Liberals are such snowflakes, they are so easily offended.

*Disney announces fictional fish person will be played by minority*

Republicans: OMG HOW DARE DISNEY

Democrats: oh it’s such a great progressive move to cast traditional white roles as minorities.

*movies race bend any other race of character

Democrats: RACIST!

This is what upsets people. I couldn’t care less what the race of a fictional character is, but there’s a double standard here and that’s what upsets some.

This is why you have a tiny brain. Race bending a white character is fine, because white people/characters are seen as the DEFAULT for centuries, excluding every other minority in the process.

Race bending a minority character is racist, because you're erasing representation.

Black people are 12% of the population and already make up a higher percentage of movie roles than that. I don’t see how a black Ariel fights oppression.

That's just... not even remotely true: https://socialsciences.ucla.edu/wp-cont ... -27-18.pdf

If you're talking specifically ALL film roles, supporting or otherwise, they make up 12.5% of those roles. Which is right on the target. (unless you're marketing your film to... you know... the world. In which case...)

I was talking about movies made now, not all of cinema history.
