""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///

Yes, goddamnit(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blondeAnd literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and suchSo please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.

Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”

the funny thing ist though, even if a character is described as having dark skin, dark hair and brown eyes, theyre still being cast as white

It’s also worth noting that the fact that a black person has blonde or red hair doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve got a white ancestor kicking around in their family tree. Recent genetic studies suggest that the gene that codes for blonde hair in black African populations is completely different from the gene that codes for blonde hair in white European populations, and that blond hair among Aboriginal Australian populations is connected to yet a third gene. The same trait has independently arisen at least three times in humanity’s generic history, and only one of those cases is linked with light skin per se.
(Interestingly, this also means that the widspread belief that blonde hair is part of a complex of adaptations to low-sunlight regions is probably false, since populations that live in the sunniest parts of the world have their own blonde-hair mutations unrelated to the European one.)

But on another note, can we please not assume that people who say “oh, they have blue eyes/blonde hair/etc so they must be white” are saying these things maliciously? Or ignoring facts?
Before this post, I had literally never seen a person who has both dark skin and blue eyes or red hair. And likely that is because of media, and the place I live. There are very few people in the town where I live who are not caucasian, and there were relatively few people at my university when compared to larger universities who are not caucasian. So the majority of my “exposure” has been through TV and movies which, guess what, don’t like casting people of other races who don’t look like the stereotypical image of people from that race (just look at Sophia Vergara on Modern Family who dies her hair so it’s dark and she’s more recognizably Latina/doesn’t confuse people who think everyone from South America has dark hair), and when they do have a character with hair/eye colour that doesn’t “match” their skin colour, it’s often extremely obvious that it has been altered through dies or contacts or whatever.
So PLEASE spread posts like this around like wildfire, because it could have been years before I new this, and there are lots of other people out there like me, I’m sure. I thank the people who contributed to this post for correcting that blunder in my education and showing me pictures of these beautiful people (seriously, why stick to stereotypical representations when you can have all this beautiful variety instead? I don’t understand), but please don’t mistake ignorance for racism.
Unless you show them this post and they still insist that a character described as having blue eyes is automatically white. Then feel free to call them out on their bullshit.

EVERYTHING THEY SAID BUT ESPECIALLY THE LAST COMMENT

fun fact i knew this girl from camp who had a british accent but she wasn’t from england and then one day i went to her house and her parents didn’t have a british accent either so i asked her where she got it from because i was really confused and she told me her parents faked it until she was 7 because they wanted a child with a british accent
