Not-a-racists are unsure whether they should be mad about this or not.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Rosario Dawson has been cast in an unnamed role in Marvel's Daredevil series, which is scheduled for a thirteen episode run on Netflix next year. According to the report, the Sin City actress will play a "dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city." As a result of the ambiguity of the role, not-a-racists, a special brand of racists focused on complaining about minority actors and actresses cast as traditionally white characters in superhero films, known for their propensity to display all the characteristics of a racist except that they justify said racism with statements beginning with "I'm not a racist, but...," are unable to determine whether or not to be outraged over the casting.
"I'm not a racist, but if she's an established white character, that's not gonna fly," one not-aracist told The Outhouse. "But if she's a new character, then it depends on whether the character fills the role of an established white character, who could have otherwise been played by a white actress."
"What is she, anyway?" the not-a-racist continued. "Some kind of Puerto Rican? I'm gonna have to do some research."
