This is why Shyalaman got so much rage and hate for casting caucasian kids.

This is something I keep trying to convey in conversations about representation. If you never see people who look like you achieve anything, then how do you believe in yourself? It’s not just about fiction (though fiction matters so very much), it is also about what history is taught. Erasing the past can only damage the future.
