A B.L.A.C.K Hermione. ..who’d a thought?!
It was recently made viral that actress, Noma Dumezweni will star as Hermione in London’s stage adaptation of “Harry Potter”. Fans, racist, and others were confused, upset, outraged, and some were even happy, a rainbow of emotions flooded the timelines on Facebook, Twitter, and social media platforms. But it was one tweet that silenced them all. ..a Tweet from the Queen herself. JK Rowling;
Canon: brown eyes, frizzy hair and very clever. White skin was never specified. Rowling loves black Hermione 😘 https://t.co/5fKX4InjTH

It’s almost like when white viewers see a color change they won’t be able to “identify” with the character. ..Well what in the hell do they think we deal with!? Trust me, you’ll be fine, you will find identification and you will hopefully enjoy the performance, tis not the end of the world. Seems like racist are out all over social media with this and the Steve Harvey situation, whitey’s clam down.
Congrats Noma, represent girl!
