Eurasia = Europe + Asia. It's kinda ignorant to claim that Asia is the original continent and Europe just don't want to be part of Asia so they made themselves their own continent. There is already a name for Asia + Europe. Don't belive me? Look it up on wiki. Also, there's a difference between continents and cultural continents. Europe = cultural continent, Asia = cultural continent. Eurasia = Geographic continent of both Asia and Europe :)

The idea of a “cultural continent” is just an embarrassing excuse to preserve Europe’s special snowflake status on the map. If the European geographers who oh-so-conveniently decided to make Europe its own continent were really being rational, they should have made South Asia its own continent too. It’s bigger than Europe, separated by a mountain range, and culturally distinct.

did she get a haircut

does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time

Wow.

Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character. 
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.

Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit

Bullshit. That little black girl is credited, in the cast list and IMDb, as Lavender Brown.
That is who Lavender was until she became more relevant, and they made her white
It is racist, stop shoving your fingers in your ears and pretending this isn’t what happened.

Naw, Harry’s eyes can be blue.
Lily’s eyes can be brown. 
Fred and George don’t really need the money to start their business. 
It’s not really important who gives Harry the gillyweed. 
Let’s make Hogwarts the only coed school in the TWT. 
Dudley Dursley doesn’t need a redemption.
It’s not really a big deal if we let Peter Pettigrew live, is it? 
Let’s have Snape be creepy with Lily’s dead body. 
DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!!!!!!!!
Let’s give Ron’s best lines to Hermione instead. 
Fuck Dumbledore’s entire back-story. 
THIS MINOR CHARACTER CAN’T BE BLACK, THOUGH. THAT WOULD JUST BE SPITTING IN THE FACE OF BOOK CANON.

The closest Rowling come to describing Lavender Brown’s race is…by not describing it. We’re supposed to assume that she’s white because we’re supposed to assume they would describe Lavender’s race if she was anything but white.

White people will move mountains to justify their totally unjustifiable inclusion in everything. Arrogant pieces of shit.

"The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books"that never happened.
