#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy
When I was a little kid I used to want to be white so I could go on adventures because I believed only white kids could go on adventures. That’s what media taught me anyways.
this is from the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” TV show. those captions are not correct—the kid is saying “I’m okay” in response to being asked if he wants to go to his aunt and uncle’s house
I agree with the sentiment, but god damn stop bending and twisting existing media that has nothing to do with your message in order to get your message across
