The Darker The Actor – By Phoenix Calida

Before anyone asks-

1 no. I will not see the ‪#‎ninasimnina-simone-zoe-saldana.pngone‬ movie unless I intend to critique it to shreds, but I’m not buying a ticket for that.

2. As much love as I have for fellow afro latinas like Zoe Saldana, I run out of patience if your black ass won’t even identify as black. Bitxh, you black. Stop it with that mess.

3. They had to basically put a light skin, mixed race black woman in blackface to make her darker and give her a prosthetic nose. I’m not here for that.

4. Nina was always proud as f*ck to be black, something Zoe never been. Nina was dark, something Zoe never been. Nina was ALWAYS political and getting at white supremacy, something Zoe has NEVER done.
At least find an actor who respects and loves blackness as much as Nina. Respect her damn legacy.

5. Darker black actors exist. And they can act their Butts off. We didn’t need Zoe racially confused ass for this movie.
