Benedict Cumberbatch can play Khan, and in doing so make his dark skin white, his long hair short, and wear a plain black shirt and pants instead of the extravagant outfit he’s known for
Johnny Depp can play Tonto, while wearing red makeup to make his skin appear more tan, replace the character’s simple fringed shirt, pants, and belt with some clothes he apparently found in a middle school drama club’s basement, add some black-and-white facepaint for no reason, and throw a bird on top of his head
And when they do this, it’s “all about the best actor for the role”
But when Quvenzhané Wallis is cast as Little Orphan Annie, finding the best actor for the role takes a back seat to preserving the original character designs
Because when a white actor plays a character of color, they’re “the best actor for the role” regardless of how many liberties they take with the character designs, but when an actor of color plays a traditionally white character, it doesn’t matter whether or not they’re the best actor for the role, the question becomes “should they even be allowed to have the role? It’d just be to different from the version of the character we already know.”
I’ll tell you why that is: Because in Hollywood’s eyes, a person of color turning white is a step up, whereas a white person becoming a person of color is a step down.
Because the people who make movies are, by and large, big old racists.

THIS IS FUN
This palette was quite the challenge haha!
Harry and Sally have been on my mind for ages so this was the perfect opportunity to draw them ^w^
I also made a progress gif, because I made so many screenshots and well these are always fun!
once i was babysitting my neighbor’s 6 year old and she asked me why i was so ugly and without thinking i said “i’m you from the future” and she cried for like 30 minutes
My uncle ties his dreads around my cousin to keep her from falling off his shoulders and I think it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen.
