Okay fandom. One last chance.
When M. Night cast white protagonists in his adaptation of Avatar: the Last Airbender, a lot of people got angry about that. And when a blonde white girl got cast as Katniss, I got plenty of articles on my dash about how a white Katniss undermines…
Read this. It’s really informative.
I also admit to forgetting that Bane was a latino, born and raised in a fictional country called Santa Prisca, a Carribean Republic, according to the wiki entry on him.

Plus, as much as I hated not having Renee Montoya in the second Batman film, I’m glad she wasn’t, because that whole scene between the detective and Harvey Dent/Two-Face is just ugly. When you have a straight, rich white guy ranting at a poor or working class Latino woman about the pain he’s in and then deciding whether she lives or dies based on a coin flip, I’m going to side with the latino woman.
^^^ Holy fuck yes :)
