Media Misrepresentation

     This past week rumors surfaced that actress Zendaya Coleman would be playing the role of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming film Spiderman: Homecoming. While many people came out in support of Zendaya, others were vocally upset that Zendaya, an African-America woman, would be playing Mary Jane, traditionally a white woman in the original Spiderman comics. Twitter filled up with tweets arguing that Mary Jane needed to be played by a "red head".Well there are two things wrong with this…See More
