If they’re is willing to allow themselves to be used a faceclaim then that’s awesome! If not it would be a little creepy, maybe so I wouldn’t suggest to anyone to do it without their permission - WOW HER TUMBLR JUST LOADED AND SHE’S SO PRETTY I JSDHGFGKJDHG HER SIDEBAR SAYS SUMMER BUT I THINK SHE MIGHT ACTUALLY BE ROXANNE WEASLEY
I’m sorry I got distracted there, goodness me. But yeah if she’s okay with people using her as a fc, I think she’d be a perfect Roxanne!
You’re welcome! And thank you :D
There was an error in the list, my apologies. She is not described much in the books, but here’s a picture of her from Philosopher’s Stone:
[she is judgin’ whitewashers in this picture]
Secondly, that would depend on whether we’re talking about drawn [or idk playdoughed or whatever] fanart, or fancasting.
For a fancast if they’re cast a white person, I’d say yeah that’s true, biracial kids can be white-passing but they still didn’t cast a biracial person, they cast a white person.
For a drawn fanart, I’d say [/have said] that yes, that is true, but given that apart from Roxanne, Fred, and potentially Percy’s kid [we don’t know anything about his wife] there are no other PoC next-gen Weasley kids, so taking out some of the very few representation that black people have in the series just because you can’t be arsed to draw Fred II as anything other than a carbon copy of his Dad makes you kind of an arsehole.
Or I might say, yes that’s true, but it’s very rare for someone as dark as Angelina [who has quite dark skin in the films] would have a white-passing kid, considering that even if they were like 75% looking like George, they’d still be obviously black. I’d also mention that the black gene is dominant, so if they’re not a “50/50 mix” of they’re parents, if anything they’re going to look more like they’re black parent. And if someone if going to ignore everything I just mentioned because they are really that desperate to draw a biracial kid as white/white-passing then I think the really need to ~sort out their priorities.”
Also if they mentioned wanting to make Fred II look exactly like his Dad or Fred I’m mention how extremely droll, overused, unimaginative, and boring that trope is and remind them that firstly kids can look like they’re white parent and still be clearly biracial [like Alfie Enoch for example], and that personally I think it would be much more beautiful and emotionally powerful anyway if Fred II’s similarities to Fred were something that developed over time [I wrote a post about that before]
SORRY THIS IS SO LONG THERE ARE JUST SO MANY REASON THAT WHITEWASHERS ARE WRONG AND WANKY - and this is just in response to one [albeit common] excuse.
The New Generation: Boys
Fred is part black.
Blaise Zabini / Graduated / Slytherin House / Roleplayed by CG
Face claim: Jamie Dornan
Blaise is black. Try again.
Sorry I didn’t answer this earlier! I recently moved house and our internet wasn’t back up until today!!
And thank you and yay I shall share this with my followers!
This is tagged Fred Weasley, but I’m pretty sure this ain’t Fred Weasley. The Weasley one is biracial.
A llama would probably be just as innacurate as this anyway tbh
Because Fred is half black.
Everyone was surprised when Fred got sorted into Ravenclaw and not Gryffindor. Although not as surprised as they were when when he came home for Christmas his fifth year with three metal lip piercings that matched his Muggle-born boyfriend’s.
Absolutely zero people were surprised when the Sorting Hat placed Roxanne into Gryffindor, and Fred squirming guiltily in his chair after Angelina got an owl from school inquiring where exactly Roxanne had gotten the twenty banned Weasleys’ Wildfire Whiz-bangs she set off in the middle of her potions exam second year was met only with an irritated eye roll.
