Discussion; Dark skin Characters portrayed


#42

Haha when I do CC in stories and have a white family (like okay cool, lemme just play along :joy::joy:).


#43

^^^ this.


#44

We were randomly adopted into tht family x3


#45

Lmao exactly :joy::joy::joy: (it trips me out for a bit then I am like k I am adopted, I see).


#46

If there are any black characters in a story, they’re sometimes wearing something crazy or have like pink hair. they’re always sassy and speak funny. Or they dont even have lines and theyre just standing there in the background as a default character and that way they can say they have some sort of diversity


#47

That’s what I tell myself as well. Thought I was the only one.


#48

Ugh forced diversity :expressionless::expressionless: Just have no diversity whatsoever if one is just going to perpetuate stereotypes.


#49

Exactly


#50

It bugs me on another level - or when people try to come across as an “open minded and tolerant” individual but rather looks like an asshole -_-


#51

I know. Alright, I’m black and sassy kinda…but not everyone is. I have a black friend who is really shy and wouldn’t show any sass


#52

Exactly, don’t generalise!


#53

oOps never replied to this.

But, I don’t get why.
Like.
Canada is a country of immgrants. So…
It’s not like he said China doesn’t have many black people, I would get that—that would make sense to me.

I know many mixed people.
One of them being my mother.
