Eleven-year-old Marley Dias sounds like just the sort of person we need more of in this world. She wants to read books with main characters she relates to, and wants to give others the same opportunity. Should we always read/watch stuff featuring those similar to us… of course not. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting more of an opportunity to do so. Especially when the bulk of mainstream media is so overwhelmingly middle-class white.
Absolutely ridiculous. Truly the terrorists have won as they’ve turned us into a society that arrests a 14-year-old for making and bringing a digital clock to school. Shameful.
