It’s actually so funny that people are angry about Annie being played by a black girl in the new movie. First of all you’re all just a bunch of racist assholes. But second of all, that girl playing her is Quevanzhané Wallis. Oh, you know, just the youngest actress ever to receive a fucking Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. And she’s only 10 years old. How much have you accomplished in your life exactly?
Khan couldn’t be white, but ya’ll were silent about that. All I heard were crickets.
Whitewashing goes unnoticed by most white people (not ALL of course), and in some cases even defended, but when a white character is turned black, suddenly you all want to make your voices heard.
Not everyone is white. Everything can’t ONLY appeal to you. What about the rest of us? Get your head out of your ass. The world is not tailored to you and your whiteness.
Her race has nothing to do with the story. It is not a plot point, nothing changes.
Except for maybe giving black children a cute character that looks like them with a great story full of hope and love (like white children have had in abundance since God only knows when).
Does this threaten you? Something not being only for you? If you answered yes, then I suggest you find a way to leave planet earth now, because things are changing, and they are becoming more diverse and inclusive.
And how can someone not absolutely LOVE that? Hell, as a black girl if they made her Asian or Middle Eastern or something I would love it just the same. Why? Because they are including someone different, and a different set of viewers. And I think that’s incredible.
You want a white Annie? Watch the old ones and keep your pessimistic racist bullshit to yourselves, because we don’t want to hear it.
Quit being greedy. You cant have everything, despite what you’ve been led to believe.
I await your hate mail.
Yes, a “black” Oscar nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis has the starring role in the remake of Annie, which also stars Oscar winner Jamie Fox. Now for the outrage that Annie is White…you know like Santa Claus and Jesus.
TRIGGER WARNING: There is a LOT of hate speech in this article, and a lot of use of the N-word.
(Racist assholes don’t seem to have learned from the Rue debacle that taking screenshots of Tweets is relatively easy and that the Internet never forgets.)
I don’t get this. So many assholes screaming about one tiny, talented girl who will be awesome in the role.
Oh, and to the fool who asked, “What next, a black Snow White?” Well, why not? The princess could just as easily have hair as white as snow and skin as black as ebony.
White racists stay embarrassing themselves.
White people are already pressed about the new Annie.
I’m completely unsurprised. They can stay mad.
They should have just gotten Carol Burnett >.>
"OMG! I’m not racist and it’s not about her being black! Annie is a little red headed girl with curly hair! That’s just how I see her!"
that white girl didnt even have curly hair but no one was complaining because she was white.
the 2014 annie is actually closer to the original than this one is.
