“Tiger Lily doesn’t equal Human Torch”

“And bottom line, if you feel so disenfranchised by one role out of TONS of roles being changed up ethnically, if you are saying you can’t possibly relate to a character who is another race from you, well, I think that’s more a problem of your own than anything else. But don’t worry, the stastics say you’ll have lots of other entertainment for your point of view to choose from. Around 75%, actually. Hooray, I guess?” Felicia Day writes about the difference between making Peter Pan’s Tiger Lily white instead of African-American and making Marvel’s the Human Torch African-American instead of white.  (Thanks, Wendy!)
