Please feel free to browse our tumblr page for the latest community-sourced information about media representation in Hollywood.

We wouldn’t be doing what we do unless we wanted to see a world where color doesn’t matter. Color shouldn’t matter.   Unfortunately, it still does.  

So many of our supporters have written to let us know how important it has been for them to feel represented in media through Avatar.  Representations in media can and do impact racial attitudes—and can perpetuate racial stereotypes.  

Acknowledging that people of color and characters who have darker skin are underrepresented is not the same as perpetuating racist attitudes.  Likewise, acknowledging that women or LGBTQ characters are underrepresented is not the same as perpetuating sexist or heterosexist attitudes.

It’s not racist to want to be included and represented.
