Im tired of this diversity talk. Literally.
Yes, Episode thinks they are diverse but they are not. Yes that IS a problem. However authors not including people from every single race is NOT a problem. Its their own story, they can add it or not. Its not just “go ahead search then add” not every thing on the internet is true. Literally all yall do is talk. No act. You want people to add in your race? Nice. Go make your MC from YOUR race and teach people about your culture while the story is moving on!
Theres not a single character from my race. Do you know what I do? Yeah, I make my own characters from my race! Im writing a romcom but I also add in my culture! Do you know why I do this? Because people want stories! If I wanted to learn about cultures I’d watch a documentary not an episode story. Everybody thinks the same. So, go ahead and put the culture and diversity in. But also have plot.
The least you could do is have a MC with a culture that you’re familiar with. Thats it. No talk, just act.
And, to all those who think their story is diverse because their characters have different skin colors, DING DONG! YOURE FUCKING WRONG!
Diversity: race, sexuality, religion, no-religion, not-able bodies and probably millions of things that I cant think rn.
