I'm new on here, but I get there's a lot of angry 1488s and actual, unironic white supremacists on here, that got kicked off Reddit. Even those people, though, are better than Redditors. And I'm not a pussy, so I can ignore idiots, if need be.
With that said though, I'm not white whatsoever and even I'm sick of seeing black women put in everything. I'm the same race; I can assure you most black women are not into gaming, Marvel movies, and nerd culture. They're literally the smallest demographic of all these properties, probably tied with Arab women and albinos. There's more transpeople, Indian women, and handicapped people into gaming and superheroes than black women. And the few who are, are the kind who are basically unattractive weebs who want to fuck Japanese and Korean men, but aren't attractive enough for them.
I'm NOT talking shit about anyone here. I'm saying, making a black woman the star of a superhero movie who isn't Storm in X-Men, is bullshit. Making a black woman the star of a AAA big-budget video game, is pandering. And doing both, is cringe.
It's so fucking phony and transparent. These people see black women as an accessory or prop. It's not just tokenism, it's blatant racism on their part. (Not the gay SJW overuse of the word, either.) It's specifically Benevolent Racism.
Like, "Poor little black girls... We, the White Saviors of Hollywood, take pity on you. Here's a black Ariel. Here's a six foot tall half European supermodel who's 'black enough' in Forspoken. Here's Riri Williams, the 'nappy-haired Iron Man.' Here's a slave trader movie we rewrote for you called The Woman King. Here's BLACK FUCKING CLEOPATRA. Aren't we so good to you little nappy-haired hoes?"
It all sounds like some Joe Biden, slave master shit. And like I said, most black women are NOT into this fucking shit. There's probably more transMEN who play video games, than black women.
Not to mention, none of these characters act anything like actual American black women; you can tell some soy-bitch white San Francisco native, wrote these characters. Not even someone from New York City; 100% Californian. They just took a white female character, changed them to black, and left everything else the same, including the dialogue, hair styles, and outfits. That's another reason this shit comes off so fake and insulting. And trust me, most black women aren't asking for this shit, either. They don't even watch or play these properties.
I miss when we had realistic characters in things, like from genuine black actresses like Brandy, Beyoncè, Halle Berry, Queen Latifah, Angela Bassett, Gabrielle Union; hell, even Oprah. Frey in Unspoken, is such a fucking joke. As is Black Ariel and Black Cleopatra. Created by insecure losers, FOR insecure losers. Aka, the woke.
I really hate this retarded race shit, coming from BOTH sides of American politics. But as racist as the angry far-right 1488 dudes are, the pandering woke assholes making pity projects for "the black and Latinx womyn of color," are way fucking worse and more offensive.
