Quick question…

I read an interview Greg Rucka did recently, talking about Lazarus. The link was titled “I talk to about his NINTH female protagonist — Forever Carlyle of LAZARUS!”

When comic writers are interviewed about their male protagonists, do they always list the number in caps? Like, ‘I interviewed Stan Lee about his SEVEN HUNDRED & SECOND male protagonist — [INSERT NAME HERE]!’

And then I saw that Melissa Fumero had been cast as Amy Santiago on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and I felt my guts roll up into my throat and try to escape out of my mouth. Omgomgomgomg that’s it then. There’s no way in hell a major network is gonna cast two Latina actresses in such a tight ensemble show I AM SCREWED.

And then next day my agents called and told me I’d booked it.

I couldn’t believe it. I had been saying to my boyfriend the night before how there was JUST NO WAY. Normally, The Latina is a singular element of the ensemble she is working in. She’s there to provide contrast, or sexuality, or humor. Or she’s there to clean the floors and/or steal your man. There are some serious stereotypes very much alive in film and TV today, and The Latina is one of them.

Here’s the thing though. The world is changing. Slowly but surely, television is changing. The character stereotypes are changing, or being turned inside out by some fantastic writers and actors (I’m looking at you, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, and The Mindy Project). People of color are on TV playing roles that are fleshed out, complex, human. And yes, some of those characters are maids. Some are sexy heartbreakers there to steal your man. Some own BBQ joints, while some are Chiefs of Staff. Some are prisoners, and some are cops. All are real people with hopes, dreams, ambitions, fears, and all the other vast human emotions and desires…

…This is important. Because young women are watching TV, and they are getting messages about who they are in the world, who the world will allow them to be. And in big important steps, television is showing a reflection back to those young women that YOU CAN BE WHATEVER THE HELL YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE, and that two Latinas on one show is NORMAL. I think that’s a win for everybody.

Okay, so hopefully this will be the final update. :)

Since yesterday evening, I have had private email conversations with Mr. Queen. He’s personally apologized to me, and I’ve accepted it. He is also withdrawing the DMCA takedown complaints against this blog.

As of this post’s…

everyone’s pumped about book three of korra, and so am i!  but instead of whipping up some korra-based-art, i decided to throw it back to the series that started it all with a portrait of katara based on the lovely lupita nyong’o.  (forreal, she’s been one of my fan-casts for a young-adult katara.  it’d be rad.)
