NO CAUCASIANS ARE CAUCASIAN! The term “Caucasian” for white people comes from an anthropologist who found a skull. It had more cranial capacity, so he assumed the skull belonged to a white person. (At the time, many cultures were trying to prove theirs to be the most advanced historically.) He named the skull after where he found it, in the Caucasian mountains in TURKEY.
I am a white person. I am an American mutt. None of my ancestry comes from Turkey. Using “Caucasian” as a way to make whiteness sound refined or derogatory or however ticks me off. I don’t think it’s racist to call a white person Caucasian, but it’s a pet peeve belonging to ME.
So when someone critiques a movie, TV show, etc. for having too many “Caucasians”:
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
But now you know. ;D
Because all I’ve heard about it is that it didn’t have a lot of fans. I certainly had never heard of it.
I just can’t take these people seriously who claim Disney is ruining the series if it was a financial black hole to begin with.
It was an all-Asian cast initially? Good for them. But the audience for this movie won’t be, and Disney has made the cast MORE diverse, in more ways than just race.
Basically, if you haven’t read the comics, don’t fanrage about them not being faithful to the comics. How would you know, anyway?

I love the nervous squeal of glee I get when I throw this child in the air.
A comic strip from a rough and fast series I’m doing about my real life adventures at work. With some exaggeration. Check it out! Please?
Is is just me or are some of the character dynamics and designs in Disney’s Big Hero 6 kind of similar to Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans?
We have the dark-haired leader [Hiro and Robin], the bulky, African-American technician [Wasabi and Cyborg], the bubbly, long-haired girl [Honey and Starfire], the dark-haired, frowning girl [Tomago and Raven], and the happy-go-lucky comic-book-lover [Fred and Beast Boy]. The only thing that’s different is the addition of Baymax.
OH MY GOSH THIS MAKES IT BETTER.
"Let me get this straight: a man in a kabuki mask attacked you?"
I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN. I KNEW IT. AND IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY.
