So trading in pokemon go is kind of a pain the ass. I am happy to give my taurus away here in europe, but it costs me a lot to do so, unless I've been in game friends with the person for a month.

And on top of that, I can only give one away a day to people that don't already have one. They really aren't encouraging generosity on my part.

I caught my first shiny Pokemon yesterday - a beautiful, albeit underpowered and crappy, golden Magikarp. Powered that sucker up and evolved it ASAP.

Now, I'm an owner a beautiful, red Gyrados.

Since I'm seeing it pop up elsewhere, I will say it before others can get in.

If you care that Ciri is gonna be played by a non-white actor, you're both racist and a big f*cking loser nerd.

I couldn't care less about who they cast for what, but what seems weird is that they seem to be casting her as non-white for the sole purpose of casting a POC. As in, the casting call specifically calls for non-white actors, in a sort of 'whitey need not apply' sort or way. Is a POC cast in a prominent role beneficial if there's the appearance that the casting director(s) is simply trying to fill a quota?

Either way, the story allows for it so I don't see what the big deal is. There also was a fair bit of bitching when Idris Alba was cast as a Norse god - a pantheon most would expect to be played by as pasty of people as the people of the civilization who worshipped them. People got over it.

How, though? Critics of the practice could easily use the argument that the role wasn't given to them by their own merit, but only because of the color of their skin, and thus seems like that's a mark against them, not for them.

And they'll be largely ignored. Yes, some people on the alt right will try to make a thing out of it, but most of the viewers aren't going to pay attention. Racists are always going to find some false intellectual argument to use.

Most people will just see another black/asian/or whichever minority gets cast on the screen. Even among those that will watch this series, most are not following this story. Why would they?

Instead, it'll be that much more representation, which helps us all. Except for some butthurt nerds, and some racists that were always gonna be racist, it's representation we wouldn't have otherwise. The only way it would be detrimental is if it's a minority hire in a major position (which excludes a netflix series for the witcher) and the series fails mostly because of the performance of that actor.

Sure, if this was the next US president having to be a black woman, I would agree that's going to far. But this is a netflix original.

I only discriminate against orange people.

f*ck them, they don’t need representation! :shifty:


I do think it is stupid however to needlessly cast a non-white actress into a role of a Polish woman just like it is stupid to cast Johnny Depp in the role of a native american.
Do I care? Not really.
It was stupid to cast a black dude as Heimdall too, despite being a good movie and Idris Elba being arguably one of the coolest and smoothest looking dudes in movies currently and as well as being a great actor.

It’s just to rock the boat, no big deal.
