racebending:

An actress on Twitter writes:  ”I didn’t make  said I was great but they already casted a black guy so they can’t cast a black girl too WHY is race an issue”

Power Rangers has had a lot of diverse casting, but since it was bought by Nickelodeon it seems to have regressed to “old school” diversity.  For example, in 2010 they only allowed white actors to audition for the lead role and Racebending.com had to write a letter requesting they open up the casting call.

OH MY GOD.

IT’S SUNDAI FROM ANTM! I’m even MORE furious now because the moment I saw her, I fell in love and she TOTALLY has the personality of a Pink Ranger. UGH!

We live in a world where this shit is still an acceptable practice. I don’t want to hear any bullshit about how maybe the person who DID get the role was better than she was. That’s garbage. The fact of the matter is she was told POINT BLANK that she wasn’t going to be considered for the role because of her RACE. Their quota had already been filled.

I’m guessing this was for the upcoming Mega Force season? Shiiiit. I was already side-eyeing the fuck out of the whitewashed and watered-down Samurai/Super Samurai, I guess I’m going to have to continue my embargo on the franchise. This sum ol’ bullshit.
