You can’t even read American fiction to get a sense of how actual life is lived these days. You read American fiction to learn about dysfunctional white folk doing things that are weird to normal white folks.

"Noah" Screenwriter Ari Handel Addresses the Reason For An All White Cast: To Represent "Stand-ins for All People"

Did you know the sun rose in the east and will set in the west? Or that water is wet? Or that little shits will be little shits even if you give them millions of dollars to make a movie? This person is also vv upset that Benetton and Star Trek had the sheer gaul to cast people of color in their respective media. 

I cannot even begin to fathom the wrongness of this

From the beginning, we were concerned about casting, the issue of race. What we realized is that this story is functioning at the level of myth, and as a mythical story, the race of the individuals doesn’t matter. They’re supposed to be stand-ins for all people. Either you end up with a Bennetton ad or the crew of the Starship Enterprise. You either try to put everything in there, which just calls attention to it, or you just say, ‘Let’s make that not a factor, because we’re trying to deal with everyman.’ Looking at this story through that kind of lens is the same as saying, ‘Would the ark float and is it big enough to get all the species in there?’ That’s irrelevant to the questions because the questions are operating on a different plane than that; they’re operating on the mythical plane.” - From the Complex article. 


Colorblindness always seems to equate not having anyone of color involved in casting. Therefore race does matter. It matters enough to exclude anyone that isn’t white.

What exactly is wrong with the Starship Enterprise ???? Or Bennetton ads ?? Operating on the WHITE mythical plane bitch, everyman being code for white man ain’t that a BITCH !
