Mixed doesn’t mean white.
Light hair doesn’t mean white.
Light skin doesn’t mean white.
Light eyes do not equal white.
And being mixed doesn’t mean someone is automatically going to be light skinned or white-passing.
So stop using any of those traits as an excuse to whitewash.
Stop derailing criticism of whitewashing with “Well what about mixed people?”. Stop pretending that people who whitewash are showing any real kind of nuance or consideration towards mixed and/or light skinned people of color when they do that. They’re erasing us too because if they really meant to represent mixed people, the’d just cast a mixed person. Not a white person with a spray tan.
