#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy

No I have to reblog this again cus I am crying right now look at the dads face

His dad can’t explain to his kid why none of them are black

except this isn’t even the correct quote

this is from the first episode of agents of shield and the kid is saying “I’m okay” in response to his dad asking if he wants one of the figures for his birthday (like, really guys??? the lip movements DO NOT fit “why aren’t any of them black” in the SLIGHTEST)

i’m all for more superheroes who represent more races and ethnicities but don’t make stuff up for reblogs there is already plenty of evidence that there is underrepresentation without you having to make up sob stories with fake quotes
