Brown Girls in the Rain

This blog is a safe space for women of color. We blog about racism and ignorance we ourselves have experienced and skin color related social issues happening elsewhere in the world.
Les Miserables Cast - Racebent
Summary:
The idea behind this was what if the story behind Les Miserables had been set in India, during the time of the British Raj? 
Enjolras and Marius would be nationalists fighting against the injustice brought about by colonial expansion into their country. I would change Javert’s story line to make him an police authority who sided with British idealism, but then after seeing the poverty of his nation, he begins to question the legitimacy of the British Rule and his part in it.
And of course I would gender bend Gavroche, because Rubina Ali just gave me all sorts of emotions in Slumdog.
