I think we should all celebrate by taking a moment to appreciate Robert Pattinson’s attitude and I’m laughing so much right now.

JUST ALL THAT HE IS.

Who would have thought he hated Twilight so much?

This guy.

He hates Twilight more than Stephen King.

I understand that it is good to include different ethnicities in writing but is it really that big a deal especially if the colour of a characters skin isnt essential to the plot? Couldnt you leave skin colour out of it completely and let the reader decided the ethnicity of the main character? Also would it still be so bad if all the characters were white but came from different cultural backgrounds like russian, irish, french etc. you are still being diverse without bringing skin colour into it

When a character’s skin color is not described in Western literature, readers automatically assume this character is white. Even when characters are described as having dark skin, some readers, for whatever reason, see them as white and get upset when visual depictions defy what they want to see.

By saying that a character’s skin color needs to be essential to the plot to be described, you are saying that only white characters are worthy of having stories that don’t have anything to do with racism, racial identity, and other issues related to race and colorism. It’s not that hard to say your character isn’t white. Their ethnic and/or racial background does not need to tie into the plot for them to exist.

Including different ethnicities (within one race) is diversity, but it is ethnic diversity. It’s not racial diversity. They are two different things.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts
