I love many different forms of entertainment, but sometimes it hard to love the fandoms that spring up from them.

If you think about it, a coloured Kryptonian might actually be stronger than a white Kryptonian on Earth. Their powers comes from them absorbing sunlight, and lighter colours would reflect light more than it absorbs it. A black Kryptonian might be able to absorb light better than a lighter skinned Kryptonian. Something to think about.

I’ve been saying this for ages.

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x

Cinderella will be black on Broadway and white people can't deal →

So, I was in the middle of searching for how long Keke Palmer will be on Broadway as Cinderella. Gotta get my ticket. I scrolled down and saw this first comment:

The reach with this one disneyfied ass tale. They, however, have no problem whitewashing different races and ethnicities and see our disdain as sensitive and “reverse racist.” Case in point: Exodus - God and Kings, the new British-American biblical movie set in Egypt, that has caused uproar and boycotts:

Apparently these are acceptable…

Lemme not go over the post limit. This is just a handful that scratch the surface. 

BTW, the Cinderella story came from China to Europe in the time of Marco Polo..

That’s interesting, because I hear that Cinderella had it’s roots in Ancient Egypt and was brought over to Europe by the ancient Greeks. So, maybe this is us just taking our story back.

Did Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” movie give the Sphinx a white/European makeover?

The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.

The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.

The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face. 

Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.
