First of all, I am not racist, nor do I intend to offend anyone.
I don’t like how most bronies portray Twilight Sparkle as a black person when they humanize her.
My problem is that it’s a forced trend. It’s as if those bronies want to create a “token black character” whenever they get the chance to, so they can stay as politically correct as possible.
And how these bronies try to justify their choice is even dumber: Most say they drew her that way because her fur is in a darker shade. If these bronies actually were serious about that, why is there such a large hivemind of people drawing black Twilights out there? Surely, the portrayal wouldn’t be so common if that was the actual explanation.
I DON’T say there aren’t any black people IRL who act like Twilight but there are just no indicators for Twilight (or anypony) being black at all. MLP even has pretty much canon black characters, which are introduced as zebras, so I don’t see how people feel the need to draw any pony black or muslim or jewish or transgendered.
Sure, you could always say it’s just fanfiction, but the common image of a black humanized Twilight Sparkle is driving me nuts and I want this hivemind to stop.
(Now brace for the shitstorm)
