Comments on the trailer of the new Annie movie staring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx.
Would you just look at how racism isn’t a thing anymore in today’s society.
Every day, just a little more…
smh white people are insane
"Racism is dead and black people should just get over it."
What the hell is wrong with people? My god, things get reinterpreted and adapted all the time. So what if Annie was white in the original comic strip? She ALSO DIDN’T HAVE PUPILS OR IRISES. Why isn’t anyone up in arms about that? There was also a racist depiction of a Middle Eastern man in the original comics. I’m waiting for the commenters above to call for his inclusion. This is like the vitriol that spilled out when Donald Glover was floated as a possibility for the latest Spider-Man franchise. GUYS, WHY WOULD IT MATTER SO MUCH IF SPIDER-MAN WAS BLACK? You can accept that he gains superpowers from radiation and can then shoot webs from his hands and wrists, but OH NO, PETER PARKER MUST ALWAYS BE WHITE? REALLY? What a disconnect. What ignorance. Look, this movie is going to be great. But no one should have to apologize for or justify it.
