There is no ideal so much as, avoid relying on racial stereotypes and tropes while crafting the character. Treat them like people and not like Diversity Points ™.
Yeah, maybe the conversation might also have been critical if they had included one POC, but I feel like that’s always the worst reason not to include someone- it’s that whole attitude of, “You POC are just going to complain so why have you in the movie at all!” E
ven suggesting it often has this attitude of, “Well you can’t blame Disney for not wanting you on the screen because when you are, you complain,” as if people should just settle for sub-par, inaccurate representation so that they’re not threatened with complete expulsion.
PS idk if I misunderstood what you agree with but “negligible” usually means it was so small an issue as to be not really worth mentioning?
