Why is it always people of color that have to face this backlash?

People always talk about ending racism. Racism doesnt exist…yada ya. But this unusual pressure is always on people of color.

Like I wanna do a job. Why are you looking at my skin color? Then you look at my skin color if I dont have a job. Which one is it?

I thought it was supposed to be best person for the job? Why criticize because their skin color looks different? Have we not learned a thing from Spiderman? Star Wars, etc.

If the movie is bad let it be based on the actors skill. Not skin color. Cuz if it was good we all know they wouldnt mention skin color.
