Since @Brovo did a poll about gender in fiction, I thought I would follow through with one of my own but more broader. What are your thoughts about representation in the media? I think it's something that started with good intentions but turned into something bad. For example, I had a discussion with a friend with the Mortal Kombat character Jacqui Briggs. She's being portrayed by Pepi Solunga in a new MK webseries called Mortal Kombat Generations. Pepi is Nigerian and Scottish while Jacqui is African-American. My friend complained that Jacqui was being white-washed and after I disagreed with her, she stated and I quote directly from her: "I don't give a fuck if the actress's ass is mixed, I give a fuck about how the media still never treats Black characters right and dolling them up to be more accepted by a society that already hates our race." I called bullshit on her statement and she just left after saying that I took her statement the wrong way. There are tons of ways this representation thing can go badly like the Steven Universe fandom attacking Zaami for her fanart. I also find it funny how people like to ignore franchises and movies that ARE diverse and very successful. I adore the Fast and Furious franchise and its cast is VERY diverse. It's also Universal's biggest property. Star Wars: The Force Awakens has a diverse cast and so far, it's been VERY successful. So maybe representation in the media isn't as big of a deal as people make it out to be? I get where some people are coming from but it's going to levels that it should NOT have gone to. That's my take on the subject.
