Seriously guys, put POC in your sci-fi movies, books, and tv shows. Seeing a film with none of them at all is actually kind of scary for me.

It would be like you sitting down to watch a movie about a dystopian near future and there are absolutely no men and the plot doesn’t address that at all. Like, literally wouldn’t your first thought be that men were at some point eradicated completely by the women?

That is what we’re pretty much forced to think about your entirely white fictional society. Maybe y’all herded us into death camps. Maybe y’all just shot us all in the streets. All I know is there are none of us left and no one seems to find it suspicious or unusual.

If you don’t want people to think that about your work, then for the love of god include us in your narrative.

As other people have said, it’s super telling how they write their “escapism” or “utopia” or “fantasy world” with no people of color in it (and no queer people either).
