Why do you assume that? I am a minority myself and I genuinely do not understand all this bickering about representation. Sure it can be cool, kind of like if you have someone or something from your local town appear in a show or whatever. But it's not like you go around crying about how your town is never represented in media. And just like that, you don't go around crying about whether or not your skin colour/ethnicity/race or whatever is represented either. I don't care and no one I know in real life care about that either.
Most of the time (I am not saying all of the time) it seems like it's white people crying about the representation of minorities, as if their assumption is that I feel weak and victimized because we're only occasionally featured in media.
Like holy shit? Talk about being condescending. How fragile do they imagine people are?
Is it really the case that people have told them over and over that "representation" is super important somehow, and yet being part of the majority they haven't even been able to imagine what it's like so they default to what they've been told, assuming that it must be a huge fucking deal even though barely anyone it actually concerns care that much about it?
