In reference to all this “Whitewashing” Bollocks……

  • Its a book , books are designed to feed people’s imaginations, if someone imagines a character to be black, white or fucking rainbow coloured then deal with it. Its what goes on in THEIR imagination and NOT YOURS. And if their fan cast represents that, so be it.
  • I cannot recall anywhere in Divergent,that mentions the colour of Tobias’s skin, we have only established that he has Olive type skin from Veronica Roth’s Tumblr. And from what she describes, it sound’s like Evelyn is Hispanic looking and therefore Tobias has slight Hispanic colouring. what if people never had a Tumblr Blog and never found this out? what then? would they still be “racist”?
  • as far as i am concerned, Four’s skin colour was never mentioned in the book, therefore in the teeny tiny little braincell that holds my imagination, Four is prancing around in there, holding a loaded gun, as an olive skinned white person. Does that make me racist?
  • Christina is described as having Dark skin in the book. Therefore in the teeny tiny little braincell that holds my imagination, Christina is Prancing round in there, kissing Will, as a Black person. Does that make me racist?
  • All these people going on about “Whitewashing”, give it a rest, its getting boring. You obviously have nothing better to do than try to cause arguments on Tumblr. Since all this nonsence has been going on, there has been a distinct lack of Divergent graphics because people are too scared to make any. This is very disappointing. Guys if u want to make graphics using your fan cast, just do it, don’t care what other people think. Its what goes on in  your imagination and not theirs ! If you think Four looks like one of the Teletubbies and Christina or Uriah or Tris or Will looks like Mr Blobby, just frigging make the graphic! i will applaud you! 
Four:
  • Tris
  • Christina
  • Will
  • Peter
  • Eric
  • Jeanine
  • Uriah
  • Caleb
  • Marcus
  • Tori
  • Lynn
  • Marlene

My dreamcast.

And if anyone has got a problem with it, well quite frankly i couldn’t give a shit.

    The way white people deal with POC calling out their racism, white washing etc. is by calling them haters and telling...

    You know the best way to deal with an accusation of racism is to make a joke. /sarcasm
