just a few of the signs we made today for our rally on april 24 starting at 8:30AM! thanks to everyone who came out.
"If you have to have someone who looks like you in the media in order for you to relate then maybe you’re the one who’s racist"
"children don’t see/care about race"
"Color doesn’t matter! It’s about the actor/story!"
"there are bigger issues to talk about than representation"
"they whitewashed because they need to make a profit and attract their target audience"
"It’s a European fairytale/story so of course the characters will be white!"
"whitewashing isn’t real"
"they considered and picked the best actor for the job"
(The best actor? More like the best we can do at this time.)
(It’s not the best actor when you exclude a racially ambiguous role to one race.)
"why do we need minorities in European stories!? they wouldn’t do a story about Africa with white actors!”
"Maybe they didn’t cast an actor of color because they didn’t auditioned!"
Cleaned it up a bit and added some more.
If the point of the Big Bang Theory was to show that male nerds can be just as sexist as male jocks then well done I guess

Client: What? You said you didn’t work at the weekend! I don’t want to pay for stuff you do in your free time.
