Another thing about that person who reblogged my post with their unnecessary and inaccurate response is that one of the things they said (and I’m paraphrasing because I’m pissed off) was like “the sisters should have been black”

A) I’m happy with the Goldstein sisters as they are because well… It’s not like Jewish characters get a lot of rep in fantasy media and they are darlings.

B) What is it with nonblack people assuming that the only representation that matters to black people is black representation? Like when the trolls descended the other day on this same post, it was all “poor baby won’t watch a movie without black people” and like… Really?

C) I wanted Newt to be a character of color. I wanted random witches to be characters of color. I wanted to see a magical world that looked like our world. Full stop.
