Anonymous asked:
Does it bother you that the orphan black cast is all white with one exception?

  1. Art
  2. Oscar
  3. Gemma
  4. Vic
  5. Teddy
  6. Raj
  7. Amelia
  8. Beckwith (the asian lady at the police station)
  9. Carlton
  10. Mira
  11. possibly Angie too?

that’s more than one

and since 40% of the characters are played by Tatiana, i think the number of POC characters is pretty high

  1. the only main cast member
  2. barely on screen, basically only in relation to allison
  3. as above
  4. ah yes, the drug dealing abusive black man, How Progressive
  5. in a single episode, doesn’t even have a wiki page
  6. three episodes, only in relation to sarah
  7. appears in two episodes, dies
  8. like raj, only three episodes, you have to clarify who she is to remember That One Asian Lady
  9. a single episode, once again
  10. i literally. cant remember who that is. there are so few poc in this show
  11. and sorry to burst your bubble the actress is white so

get off your fucking high horse and call this show orphan beige like it deserves you don’t need to break your spine stretching to try and Justify how Not Racist this show is with only ten named poc in its entire three series runtime admit its got severe problems with race and maybe we can have an adult conversation about this

Yes, let’s talk about these perception issues too. Why is it that “non-white characters walking across the screen once in a while” is somehow equal to representation? Art does not even get to do anything in the finale of season two and everyone else on that list did not and isn’t going to impact the plot in any way.

as much as I like this show it is too white orphan black representation matters Human experimentation was not usually performed on white people
