DISCUSSION: Cultures & Knowledge

Never thought about it like that

It’s a bittersweet thing. Cool to see POC MC, but is it just their skin tone? What are you gunna do about the culture or issues of that particular POC?
Not everyone cares about that stuff, but it gives those characters more authenticity. And for me, I love different cultures/traditions, it gives a story much more substance.
Hopefully, people do a bit of research on it :crossed_fingers:

I love that they are doing that too, but when they have wrong information, that stuff really is annoying ASF.

Right, right. People can’t write about a culture without doing some research. You can’t just pop up and write a story about a particular race and culture of people without learning some background knowledge about them.

Are you being sarcastic?

Oh, I thought you were playing about what you said. It’s probably my fault, I might’ve read it the wrong way. :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:. You said

I thought you were being sarcastic, about not having to do research

I think that’s fair in my story “allergic to love” My main character Leo is Italian and the 4 other main characters are: Hispanic, Ghananian (Muslism), Japenses and Italian? British. So in order, to get proper name’s and backstories I had to do a fair amount of research about the cultures and slangs they would use to make the characters more realistics. However, I feel like diversity in episode stories are hard to understand like is it really “diverse” if all your background characters are different races and is the queer community represented if you have the one gay best friend? Not really
sips tea :tea: but no tea, no shade I’m just saying

anime

Yes it is diverse, it’s a type of diversity

I just kind expect more :woman_shrugging: There’s so many more ways to express diversity. Have a more diveristy cast. Also the gay best friend sterotype needs a little fixing

Yeah, the stereotyping really needs a lot of work.
