If you look at the link provided by yhwx, you will see some are complaining about women of color being “sidelined”.

Yeah but you’re still complaining.

I’m a white male so it is very difficult to plant myself fully in someone different’s shoes, but I’ll try. If I were black, I’d probably be tired of all the white characters. If I were female, I’d probably be tired of all the male characters. And if I were a black female, I’d probably be tired of both.

It’s called sympathy. I try to have some.

Just because I complain about the changing of gender of character that hasn’t changed gender in over 50 years, does not mean I am unsympathetic to the years of sexism and racist that women and minorities have had to endure. But that doesn’t mean I have to approve of all the ridiculousness that extremists do. It doesn’t mean I have to agree with the changing of gender of characters that have been around for over 50 years. Also just because they didn’t chose a black woman, does not mean black women have been “sidelined”.
