Here’s a Bunch of People Angry That New Spider-Man is WHITE, But They Aren’t Racists, Promise
Apparently a new Spider-man movie will star some kid named Asa Butterfield, and he’s pretty frickin’ white. But hey guess what? SO is spider-man in the comics. Here’s a bunch of racists who definitely aren’t racist for freaking out that the new Spider-Man will be white:
Marvel has finally decided which blue-eyed white kid is gonna be the next Spider-Man

How awesome would it have been to have a POC Spiderman though? The superhero lineup is overwhelmingly white.

You know who gets really bent out of shape when you suggest not having a White Dude as Spider-Man? White Dudes. I know, you're shocked.

They’re referring to a character that played Spider-man as a half-black half-Hispanic kid in a comic book reboot.
Wake me up when Spider-Man is played by someone other than a big-eyed white guy. (Note: I've liked all the actors, but I'm so over this.)

Saw Ender's Game, I think Asa Butterfield is a pretty good actor. But I'm really annoyed they rebooted Spider-Man for ANOTHER white Peter.

I realize that that was incredibly immature of me but I'm so over WHICH PASTY WHITE BOY WILL PLAY SPIDER-MAN?! thing.
— Stephanie Cooke (@hellocookie) May 14, 2015
oh my gosh SPIDER-MAN has been cast as … another very pale, very bland 18 year old white boy? NO, YOU DON'T SAY! I CAN'T IMAGINE IT!

Rumor or not, within 10 years every white boy in Hollywood will have played Spider-Man.

Breaking news: scrawny white nerd cast as Spider-Man

Wow, almost sounds like the kid in the comics.
NOW if you’ll remember, there was a HUGE hubbub when the first “Star Wars Episode Seven” trailer came out because supposedly everyone was angry that there was a black stormtrooper. When the evidence for this was investigated, it turned out to be two comments on YouTube. But THAT became a huge story because white people are racist, that’s why. How come this won’t be a big story?
I didn’t get the memo that comic book movies had to be a revolving game of musical chairs for minorities. When the music stops you have to fall on either black, handicapped, gay, wiccan, tranGenner, or God forbid, ginger. C’mon people, Peter Parker is white, get over it. I’d hope they’d focus on making a good movie instead of a damn political statement.
