GamingThread TBT to when Naughty Dog cast a white girl doing an accent as a South African black woman and said she was better than actual South African black women

It's disingenuous when you ignore half of the quote and substitute a false interpretation of what he's saying in order to condemn it.I don't care how married you are to your incorrect assessment. An author at any time can reexamine their own assumptions about a character they are creating and their past. How do you think Apartheid goes unaddressed? I assume you memorized the entire script in order to support your assertion? Or is it more realistic to think one day while working on the character and seeing the black designs he thought, "well, what if she was black?" and started to work that out in his head and on the page and in his collaboration with Bailey? What must her journey have been like to go from that history to running a successful mercenary outfit only to lose it again? Does it not count unless she starts every sentence with "as a black South African who experienced Apartheid"? Does Ellie need to start every line with "as a confirmed homosexual"?If you think accent accuracy is the only thing that matters in a performance, not sure why anyone should trust any of your opinions.
