I mean I agree with you, but your example is shit. Martin Luther King was an actual person, Hermione was not.

So Marvel's Black Panther or The Falcon can be white?
User avatar
#79 - toensix (01/18/2016) [-]
Sure, why not? Marvel's already been changing character's race. Like Heimdal and Nick Fury. I love both performances.

I mean I know people are going to bitch about a black to white change. But do I think they could be white? Sure I do.

If that's the case why don't we all start thinking of Hansel as black and and Gretel as middle-eastern? There's nothing in the story that specifically tells you they're white, right?

Just do it, I don't care. It's a story, if anything a retelling is interesting. But once again, it's fiction. Fiction is just fiction, you can change what you want. Especially a fairy tale because we don't know the original story. But Martin Luther King is a shitty example because he was a real person.

Point taken as to M.L.K. As for fiction though, I'm not entirely convinced. Stupid example, but I'm sure that (I'm assuming you're from the US, as is most of FJ) if Paul Bunyan started being described as asian most people wouldn't like it. Why change things just because? I mean, I wouldn't put it past Rowling, using this as a source of publicity for the play.

Not american and I've got no fucking clue who Paul Bunyan is.

Just looked it up, it's the statue from the Gravity Falls intro.

Because Harry Potter has gotten a movie and Hermione has an appearance accepted by the average person in the form of Emma Watson, I agree with you. But if that weren't the case, I'd like to point out that an Asian Paul Bunyan, while not impossible, would feel out of place because of it's setting. Like putting an Arab in a story in Medieval England, you've got to justify it. But with Hermione(if there wasn't a movie) this wouldn't be the case because there's almost 2 million black people living in the UK.

But all things considered, that one sentence about Hermione's face >>#8 pretty much disproves the entire thing. Athough I can't blame Tumblr for not looking for that single sentence in a seven-book-door-stopper.

It hasnt stopped them from doing it with lancelot and other characters
It hasnt stopped people from claiming someone is racist for not putting racial diversity into a setting based on 15th century norway

Yeah I know and that's fucking stupid. I've got no problem with it if it's fantasy, or a change of setting with the same story. But this sort of thing I really detest.

Don't ge me fucking started on that one tumblr that tries to convince everyone medieval Europe(except for Spain) was filled with black people.

Well I would agree that there probably were a fair amount of men and women of african heirtage due to servitude and such.
But Norweigh has always been one of the whitest countries to exist

There were some but It would be a very very small group except for in Spain, the Mediterranean islands and the Byzantine empire. But those areas are usually not considered part "medieval Europe".

I've also seen a ton of people complain about the same thing in Game of Thrones. Which, fair enough, is a fictional fantasy world. But one that's more of a historical fantasy; very little liberties are taken. And just for the same reason you don't see lions in a taiga forest, it doesn't make sense for ethnicties to be spread around that much in a pre-modern world. Game of Thrones has coloured people in places were it makes sense to have them and that's how it should be.

Why does that matter? It's been made apparent that she's white in the closest thing to a visual renactment of the series. It's still no excuse to racewash a character just because.

I agree but Martin Luther King is a shitty example because he was a real person. It's just not the same. A character from Lord of The Rings would be a better example
