if they just did it without making a point out of the lead being black, there'd be far less fuss over it, it'd just be seen as another reboot we probably didn't need

we're surely past the point now where it's groundbreaking or whatever to have a black lead in a show, it doesn't matter, cast the best person from the audition. Luther is mint, nobody complains he's a black guy. If Luther was rebooted and phrased in a way that the only point of the reboot was to recast it to a white guy, everyone would say thats stupid, but thats the impression you get from this when the reboot is trailed by the lead character changing race

buffy shouldnt even be rebooted anyway, it was a 90s show that worked well in the 90s, like friends - setting it now will be tragically shit, snapchatting and twitter to help solve who's a vampire, you can see it coming

The Hollywood Reporter, which first revealed the reboot, said the new series will be "diverse, with some aspects of the series… seen as metaphors for issues facing society today".

The cast of the original show... from an era when shows didn't have to have non-white characters shoehorned into them for the sake of 'diversity'.

You realise that it was a parody of the obliviousness of white middle America, yeah? I'm sure one of the vampires even comments on how white the town is.

And that Joss Whedon is - and has always been - basically king SJW. It's full of strong women, LGBTQ characters with agency, and acceptance. Unless you're a vampire, obviously.

There's even two gingers there ffs so you're represented, or would be if one was trans.

The original series was founded on the principal that "the very first mission statement of the show, which was the joy of female power: having it, using it, sharing it" - are you genuinely saying that this shouldn't be altered? You?

Wait, are you embracing your own female power?

Expecting Enoch to follow a nuanced argument is an exercise in futility.

It's basically BLACK MAN GOT JOB. BLACK MAN BAD. ENOCH MAD.
