The tweets in the images read:
At the end of the day their idea of diversity is a box to tick on a checklist. They don’t care about the merits of an individuals work 1/4
The could care less if you’re good at what you do, if you have an upstanding character, if you work hard, if you’re dedicated 2/4
You the individual means nothing. Just your characteristics. Whatever suits their narrative. It’s a fucking circus lead by idiots. 3/4
To them you are quite literally “the right color” or “the right sex”. What a warped fucking world they live in. 4/4
Bold added for emphasis.
The reason why American media doesn’t reflect the demographics of the US has nothing to do with merit and everything to do with how open casting is actually white casting because most people are unable to see a default, blank-slate character (which most protags are) as an individual that isn’t white due to assumptions and unconscious bias.
As for the “right” color thing, that exists only because 9 times out of ten (with the occasional Heimdall) the person who is playing the “wrong” color is being whitewashed or they’re a white protag playing an unnecessary audience surrogate/savior role in a country where most people are not white.
you’re extracting points you shouldn’t.
I’ll narrow it down some more: when the criticism of an indivdual game developer or character has NOTHING to do with the character/game dev, and everything to do with the demographics the character/game dev could represent, you’re a fucking asshole.
