The news that a black actress had been tapped to play the role of Hermione Granger in the J.K.Rowling written play ‘Harry Potter and The Cursed Child’ drove racist twitter into a frenzy!
@bUDDHABless ‘ First they wanted the right to vote, to an education and then not to be called nigger. But now they taking it too far.’
@WillyKKK – ‘Y’all better not try it. Hermione ain’t no nigger. She is white.’
Even after J.K Rowling herself said she never saw the character as being of a particular race one twitter user retorted ‘ What does she know?!!’.
Ironically these same people have no problems in believing that a man born in the Middle East looked more like George Bush than Barack Obama.
@nomoreben ‘ I ain’t voting for Ben Carson again. dude has Jesus painted black. ‘
@WhiteJesus ‘ Y’all got Black History Month now yall want Jesus?!’
@HigherD ‘ Nah ain’t no way my G was black. he didn’t rob anybody or not marry his baby moms so he gots to be white.’
