My Ranking Points
Hi Soman, I love the new character Nicola, is she going to have a bigger role in book five? I hope that she does.
There are a few racist people who don’t like her because she’s black, which is a pretty stupid and foolish thing to hate a person about.
I just hope that I see her in future books, I love that she reads so much, it reminds me of Agatha and myself. :3
Oh my god yes! I love Nicola :3 Shes ma new favorite character! I cant believe how horribly racist some people can be. Get to where we are culturally! Shes black; so what! That dosnt make her any less brilliant! I cant wait to read more about her in book 5! 😀
People don’t like her because she’s black? Wow….that’s low. I’m not fond of her because I don’t really like her attitude, but that’s different.
Sophie’s attitude is worse. And she has actually killed people.
Nicola is just a good bakers Daughter who has great confidence.
I hate Nicola because she is stuck up and bleh to Sophie who is the best character ever.
I love Nicola she is so much like myself and to think people don’t like her because black is stupid and racist.
Her being African American is the only reason I care for her.
I don’t like Sophie or Nicola but I’m sad that people are being racist. Long live Hester and (spoiler alert) RIP Lady Lesso
b) she’s technically not African-American, SGE is in a fantasy world
As Martin Luther King Jr, an African American himself said, ” you should juge people, not by their, skin, but by the content of their character! “
Nicola is not my favorite character, but thats for other reasons. I have never thought that people didnt like her cause shes black! Thats awful and soo racist!!
@sapphy, ya she is. Racism goes both ways, even if one race is primarily targeted.
You do realize that, that statement is incredibly rude right? My mother is white and my father is African American. I’m a mix but I grew up in Mexico before I moved. My younger brother is American and mixed. Racism is really important to me and believe me when I say, I’m not racist. You just don’t know how I think. I think very differently then other people so when I make a statement, it can sound racist, but in how I think, it’s not. To me the statement just means that I’m glad that Soman is showing more diversity in the series.
Then please @catsforlife clarify that. Though you may be from an incredibly diverse family, your comments sometimes do parallel those of slightly racist views. I’m sorry for saying you were racist, but please give context next time. Just because I’m white doesn’t mean I’m not sensitive. Your comment made it seem like you didn’t particularly like white people, at least that was how I interpreted it. Again, I’m sorry and hope that in future this won’t happen again.
