Love Island South Africa has come under fire for launching with a predominantly white cast despite Black people making up the majority of the country. 

The new spin-off series, dubbed Love Island SA, debuted this weekend with 10 new contestants shacked up in a villa together looking for love and the chance to win R1 million (£47,500). 

However, many were unimpressed after the cast was revealed to find that the opening line-up features just one Black female contestant,  and only two other Black men. 

It’s not yet known if the next set of contestants, who typically arrive throughout the series, will be more diverse.

Everything is sexist, racist, people are so ridiculous. :bye:

So you don’t think it’s wrong for a reality show based in South Africa to have more white people thank black people?

All offense: Love Island is kinda trashy and where the attention-whoring scum usually ends up on TV (along with The Bachelor). This is one of the very few times where I wouldn't kick and scream about diversity :chica:

So you don't think it's wrong for a historical movie based in England to have a black actress as queen of England? We are all fighting for equality, but most of you (Call me racist, I don't care, I know I'm not racist) only care about black culture. Nowadays GGD doesn't fight for equality, we are racist towards white people, especially towards white straight males. Most of you acting hypocritical, but the truth is that we aren't better than the "racist white people":bye:

White racism doesn’t exist. Check the definition of racism, white people can be discriminated against but racism against them doesn’t exist. Racism is a system that puts White people above everyone else. Learn your history. Think and do research before opening your mouth. Have a nice day.

You are talking about Bridgerton? :laughga:

Seriously? It is on the same kind as Fifty Shades and Twilight. It is a fantasy show. It is no way meant to be a real documentary show. White people have taken so many roles from POC like Cleopatra, some traditionally japanese shows they put a white guy as a samurai or they just dont bother and paint themselves black to play the role. And now because of one show you are complaining?
