>>726600708 First off, fuck niggers. They look ugly and were a mistake made by nature.
Second, this ruins L's great design. He had extremely pale skin, which was the result of his lifestyle, which made his dark eyes and long, unkempt dark hair stand out and drew focus on them. His white shirt almost completely matched his skin color and didn't have a lot of detail, which made it seem like a part of his body and gave impression that L just wore what he found comfortable. His design was great, and if it's a nigger playing the role, it's ruined.
>>726599519 I think it'll just make it more clear that changing the races of actors when adapting an ASIAN CARTOON is not a big deal. The white washing argument will have less ground to stand on.
Anime continues to rise in popularity across the world. Of course different people will play the roles in adaptations. Japanese people didn't even have a problem with "white washing" when Scarjo was playing that one chick from that robot show. They were just like "We'd want the best actor for the role to play it. Scarjo is very popular and a great actress. I don't see the problem." The only correct, level-headed response.
I think this guy will play a good L. He fits the feel. That's all that needs to be said.
Most SJWs don't care about racism against asians, have pretty much never even heard of anti semitism and are profoundly ignorant of the insane white on white racism in eastern europe, asian on asian racism in eastern Asia and black on black racism in Africa. They're only interested if it's an obvious colour difference.
My conclusion: SJWs don't give a flying fuck about racism and are the first people in line to take note of race wherever they go.
>>726601750 >hasn't even seen the film >it's awful! garbage! >there's no way he was the best actor choice!
If you carry your negative bias into the film, you're gonna think it's worse too. Black people can be more pale, and they can still have shadows under their eyes. I've known nerdy black guys who very clearly never leave their rooms, and you can tell just by looking at them. That's not skin color specific. If L wearing whatever he found comfortable, there's more than one way to portray that via mise en scene than just a white shirt that matches his complexion. It's very easy to portray a genius slob in a shit ton of different ways.
>oh I love Key and Peele! >haha Dave Chapelle is so funny! >WHAT THE FUCK WHY IS THERE A NIGGER IN THIS MOVIE THAT ISN'T JUST COMIC RELIEF THOUGH
Ayo nigga I don't sit like dis cause I want to. I gots to sit like dis. A nigga sittin' all straight up and shit ain't gone be able to think as good, I'd be almost HALF as good at using my brain, dawg, ya feel me?
Coincidence? Hell no, motherfucker. That's straight up too fucking easy. Ayo hol' up, this Kira motherfucker, whatever the po-po knows this cat knows, cat's game is tight. He's probably up in the cyberspace doing all that hacking shit, typical white boy, 'stead of just getting his homie on the inside to give him the scoop. Shit's obvious, nigga, I ain't fuckin' around with this shit.
I wouldn't care if this didn't happen in every new movie since roughly 2009 now.
There's absolutely no significance to making him nigger other than this is now what they do in Hollywood.
The new star wars? Any new big blockbuster since 2007 or so? They just throw them in to either purposefully cause controversy, sell tickets by pandering to niggers (look we put in a nigger like you! Buy it), or for some global jew conspiracy to desensitized people to "culturization".. Maybe all three.
Still it's fucked up and just annoying at this point. No reason to cast a nigger for a role that was originally white, half white, whatever.
Im sick of it, and just like each new star wars, I won't be buying the movie until it's free on torrent.
>>726602058 >actor for L has been referred to as "a black guy" for the duration of the thread >everyone is clearly discussing black people in roles >first usage of the term "nigger" was you >I'm the one with a logical fallacy
Black people are just people of darker skin tone who are educated, not ridiculously rowdy, and who get along with western culture. Picture Obama and similar. Niggers are black people who act niggardly. Picture pants down past the ass and lots of crime.
It's a choice of lifestyle.
So yes, BLACK PEOPLE mostly only differ in skin color, with some other small phenotype differences, and various different cultural influences, like still being accosted by cops everywhere they go their whole lives.
>>726602770 There's a thing called "impression". My first impression of the movie wasn't a good one, because they're already ruining the design of a character I liked for NO reason. No, black people can't have pale skin. They can have lighter tone compared to other black people, but if it's not the lightest, it isn't as effective. Yes, there are more ways to convey L doesn't care about many things such as appearance, but his original design already did a great job at conveying that, and it was changed for no reason.
That's the biggest thing here. Why try to fix what isn't broken? Yes, it's a reimagining of the story, but not everything needs to change. If they had taken Death Note, and made it into a book with rainbow colors and sunshine and unicorns drawn all over it, everyone would be pissed. If they took Ryuk and made him into a 2 inch fairy, everyone would be pissed. The same is happening to L. He's being changed to look like something he isn't.
>>726602770 The issue I take with it, is it's not true to the source material. I know who the fuck L is, and I know what he looks like, and it's definitely not the actor playing him. It causes a disconnect between me and a favorite character
>>726603401 how is using the word "nigger" a logical fallacy? KEK >Black people are just people of darker skin tone who are educated, not ridiculously rowdy, and who get along with western culture. Picture Obama and similar. Niggers are black people who act niggardly. that's not what nigger means bud. you can't just change the meaning of a word because it hurts your feelings
1) a nigger MUST be cast in every movie. At least one major supporting role.
2) L is the only other major supporting character that it could be. At least with L you could argue he's a bit hidden.
Here we are folks. Niggers must be cast in every movie. Often times needlessly. More often at the behest of the fans and the makers still will not care and shove it down your weak dumb fuck throats.
Why are you dumb? Because you keep buying the shit. Literally just stop. Stop buying their shit and watching their shit for one year. They'll realize they can't sell it anymore and will stop. It's the only way anons. When Wil u smarten up? You prob all paid to go see the new star wars in theaters huh?
Aww you snowflakes can never catch a break. I feel for ya.
I mean, we can point out hundreds of instances of whitewashing, mother fuckers deny it; make up excuses for it, spin in a circle do a backflip, land on go fuck yourself and keep on going. You can literally name like a handful of times where it has happened with a black person taking an Asian role, I think The Crow might be the only time I remember someone of Asian decent taking a white role (and he got shit for that too! lol).
It's cool though. Band together and fight the oppression you guys deal with every day.
"these Asians are upset with us white guys stealing their roles, fuck them. we anime now!!"
>>726603597 >the Death Note is now an elementary school girl's planner >Ryuk is now a tiny fairy I'd laugh my fucking ass off and love it, idk what you're on about.
They've already made live action movies for Death Note. Fucking watch those, or rewatch the show. Why remake something at all if you're not going to make changes? Also, why are you so afraid of change? Grow the fuck up and just enjoy shit as it comes, with an open mind.
>>726604189 >Grow the fuck up and just enjoy shit as it comes, with an open mind. I've tried that for the past few years. I still get annoyed when they force nigger movie stars down my throat just to pander to niggers so they can sell more of their movies. Or whatever reason. It's annoying especially when it makes no sense. In this case taking a story that already has established characters.
You notice the only movies they backwash like this that sell well are beloved remakes of old movies. It needs to stop. So no, I won't "grow up" and accept it. It's not childish to critique a nigger getting cast for a white role when he's blatantly not black.
>>726604189 If there's going to be changes, make changes to the story. If you're going to change the characters, don't use the existing ones. Make changes. Use a new character. Using a characters name, but changing the rest of it is just half-assing it in a really shit manner that will undoubtedly piss of the fans of the original character.
This bullshit about "growing up" or "accepting changes" is the most annoying one, because some idiots think they can say this and justify everything.
>>726599519 ok here's why it's whitewashing to make Light white, although I really personally don't care. How many lead characters in hollywood/Netflix/Amazon what have you originals can you name that are Asian? None that I can think of, unless we're talking about Jackie Chan or some kind of kung fu movie.
Holywood has a clear history of taking roles that were about Asian people, and giving them to white people, see Avatar the Last Airbender, The Love Guru, Dragonball Evolution, and a literally any other movie involving asians from before 2000. Notice how all these modern movies are all shit?
Also L in the Anime wasn't Asian he was British, and cuz once you make Light white, it really even wouldn't make sense to make the rest of the cast Japanese.
Personally, the reason I'm upset with this is cuz they're changing the formula way too much of the original Death Note. Light looks like such a pussy with his bitch ass highlights, the story just looks so edgy and tween oriented. Looks really artificial and fake. I mean if youre going to white wash the story at least do a decent job and dont make it look like fucking twilight
