Heard a white girl at work say to a black girl “I just love that I can tell black people jokes around you and you’re fine with it ”
I was SO embarrassed.

i wonder how many people im in the “id be down if you asked” zone with
did she get a haircut
does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time
Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character.
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.
Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit
Yeah because filmmakers neEeEeEever change people who are cononically black to white. They have no issue doing that but if someone turns out to be canonically white they have to boot a black actress who already had the job? And that’s not racist? Sorry, no, you’re wrong.
Orrrrr maybe that black girl was just supposed to be background and is terrible at acting so they recast it and this white girl was the best for the job, don’t just assume racism cuz… (thats racist)
