Buffy re-boot: Black woman says that if you don’t cast a white lead, you’re racist.
Of course if you cast a white lead she’d also say that you’re racist.
Talent of Color Do Not Need White TV Show and Film Hand-Me-Downs, by one Candice Frederick, a black chick who thinks the world should cater more to – surprise! – black chicks.
This includes catering to their whims which directly contradict their other whims. E.g,. “Cast black women! And don’t cast black women!”
La Frederick has this to say about the upcoming re-booting of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with a black lead:
I don’t know why Hollywood continues to ignore us (AKA people of color) whenever we throw free ideas up into the air about great original narratives centering on minority characters… They’d rather take an already existing white film or TV show and remake it with minority actors in roles immortalized by white talent — like they’re planning to do with the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer series, which will star a black actress in the title role.
This is not okay.
No, your trying to tell someone else what to do with the characters and fictional universe he created is not okay. Jesus, the freaking presumption! Invent your own fucking characters!
Of course, it is 100% certain that if the new Buffy were going to be white, Frederick would also say “This is not okay” about that.
…the new series will be written by showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen… The fact that she is a woman of color also means that she may bring a sensitivity and veracity to the character as well. But this is not about her… the issue lies in the same old tired trend of remaking white shows and films with minority talent…
Grok this, oppressor-man! Even if you cast a black woman in the lead and sign on a black woman as the lead writer, that’s not good enough! You’re still oppressing me! Aagh, I’m in pain from all the oppression!
Do SJWs seriously not understand why white people have started ignoring them in recent years? Do they seriously not understand why the “You’re racist!” thing isn’t working any more? SJWs aren’t exactly Einstein (Warning! White male!), so let me make it very simple for y’all:
If you tell me, “I’m going to call you a racist if you don’t cast minorities, and I’m going to call you a racist if you do cast minorities,” then I might as well just ignore you and do whatever the fuck I feel like. There’s not even in theory any reason I should consider giving in to your demands.
Hence the election of Trump. White people are just tired of this shit.
Ironically, Frederick gets to a reasonable conclusion – stop turning white characters into minority characters – for the wrong reason. Some of us have been saying, for a while, “Write your own fucking characters. Why do you have this burning need to change white men into something else?”
Frederick continues, What’s insulting is the thought that we’re supposed to be happy with whatever representation we get…
The point is, you’re supposed to be happy with SOMETHING, you fucking Stalinists. DECIDE what it is, SAY what it is, and STOP MOVING THE FUCKING GOALPOSTS.
There are plenty of white people who would go along with that. Hell, they DID go along with it, for all too long, hoping that if they gave in to the latest insane bullshit, that would be the end of the insane bullshit. Of course, that appeasement just encouraged the race-baiters to demand yet more insane bullshit.
You’ve told them, “We’re going to attack you whether you go along with our insane demands or not.”
Now scratch your head and wonder why they’re not going along any more.
