"diversity isnt just about skin color" ok but if you’re only showing white women’s features and making them more unique and distinguishable then you’re not really here for diversity then Are You

#LET ME TELL SOMETHING. DIVERSITY IS NOT JUST ABOUT HAVING DIFFERENT SKIN COLORS, OKAY? IT’S ABOUT HAVING ACTUAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE. CHARACTERS THAT ARE BELIEVABLE AND DIFFERENT AND REAL. I’M SO TIRED OF SEEING MOVIES, ANIMATED OR LIVE ACTION, HAVING FEMALE CHARACTERS WITH THE SAME FACE AND EXPRESSIONS AND BODY LANGUAGE WHO BARELY EXPRESS THEIR SEXUALITY OR HAVE NORMAL, NATURAL REACTIONS AND INTERACTIONS AND EXPRESSIONS THAT MATCH THEIR CHARACTERS WHEN AROUND THEIR LOVED ONES. LOOK AT THESE THREE. THEY ARE ALL STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, BUT HOW DIFFERENTLY THEY ACT AROUND THE MEN THEY LOVE. LOOK AT THEIR EXPRESSION WHEN PLEASED OR EXCITED. JUST LOOK AT THESE THREE. LOOK HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE. HOW REAL. HOW BELIEVABLE. HOW BEAUTIFUL. 

#httyd2 #has some really good female characterswho stand alone and not in the shadow of a male counter part #ruffnut is probably more developed than her twin brother #astrid doesn’t need hiccup to save her she can fight all by herself and she is the one to comfort and give him advice #and valka is a fearless dragon warrior but also a loving mother who wants her son to forgive her and to approve of her and understand her choices

But still… It would be nice to have them be different skin colors tho….

White people: “LOOK AT ALL THIS DIVERSITY ALL THE LADIES HAVE A PERSONALITY aND ALSO DIFFERENT HAIR COLORS I LOVE DIVERSITY WHO NEEDS POC FOR DIVERSITY”

yes, you obviously make 100% perfect sense because if you think even a little about the place and time of the movie there should obviously be more poc. it’s not like they are viking, which are norse, which haha, all had fairer skin and hair. but nononono, theres no poc because they are racist, or something. obviously.

Yes I think poc need to represented but where its logical but throwing a random poc in the middle of this movie would have been illogical and horribly inaccurate. also dont even think about pointing out how there are dragons and they are oh so illogical themselves. its a movie about dragons, of course there are going to be dragons and if this was pretty much any other place at any other time period then yes, please, add poc, make the star a poc, it would be fucking fantastic!

honestly, please, think with a small bit of logic. I understand why you want them in the movie, in all movies actually, but in all reality, its a norse movie, set long ago, there were just no poc around in that time. yes, they really were all fair skinned people. So, sorry there were going for historical accuracy (or as much as there can be in a movie about dragon) and didn’t add any poc.

u believe in dragons but not POC ok

"diversity is not just about skin color ok" well i literally did not read anything after that i guess only white women’s features can be shown and not poc but ok

Not to mention there was ONE PoC…. the villain, as usual : /

they’re vikings who speak with Scottish accents like what the hell is accuracy

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”
