A new series in which I ask the esteemed Kinja community why.

White Women: SCARLETT JOHANSON IS SO TALENTED AND DESERVES A BLACK WIDOW MOVIE. YEAH!!!*

Me in the corner:

Me when I think about how Scarlett Johansson was cast black widow instead of Jessica Chastain and then became an action movie star:

Like she’s really pretty and she was in all those woody allen movies that one year. But does no one seriously notice that there is never any emotion on her face ever. And that she says all her lines, exactly the same way? (flat with no inflection, even when she’s supposed to be angry or sad)

* But then I guess if white men are allowed to be mediocre and get so much, then white women should be allowed to be just as mediocre as their male counterparts. But then why don’t they cast no black girls in shit? Why?
