Just saying but -not liking a nontraditional casting of a part that’s traditionally white does not make you racist. Sure, it might make you closed to change, a bit hypocritical (ouat changes everything), and unimaginative. But it does not make you a racist. When you start…
That is such a double standard. You are missing the broader picture here. Rapunzel is originally from Germany, which is why she is commonly portrayed as white and blonde. Not liking a change in what a character commonly looks like isn’t racist, its unimaginative and ignorant. I’m not going to waste my time arguing with you, because I really hate fighting with people. So lets just agree on that fact that we are both excited to see Rapunzel no matter what she looks like, and that we can’t wait to see where her plot line leads.
You can still be both ignorant and racist; you can't divorce the racism that stems from ignorance. People flipping out about the Rapunzel casting when OUAT is a show about magic and fiarytales twisted on their heads, is some racist shit. No matter how much you try to split hairs, it's still racist. Racism isn't just "being mean" and "hating a person because of their skin colour." It's also the inability to accept people of colour in your whitecentric fantasy world.
Yes, it does take a level of ignorance to be racist- sorry if I didn’t make that clear. But I have a question for you and everybody else saying that complaining makes you racist…. would it have been okay for OUAT to take a part traditionally played by a person of color, and then give it to a white person? For me, yes that would be fine- just as I am fine with Rapunzel not being white. I don’t give a shit who plays her as long as they do a good job in the acting department. And yes, racism is hating a person because of their skin color, and the inability to accept them or see them as equals. But it’s not just white people that are racist- I can tell that’s where you’re going with that “whitecentric fantasy world” bullshit. Yes, I realize that it doesn’t happen as often to white people as it does to people of other races- but its a two way fucking street. If you hate somebody because of what they look like, then you are a racist asshole- it doesn’t matter what race you are. You certainly aren’t helping matters in any way by pointing fingers. Why not just treat everybody equally- the way you’d like to be treated. How about we spread that mantra all over the world instead of just yelling at and fighting with one another?
