Question with 3 notes
spacecadet asked: Don't comment on things you don't understand. I didn't say he hung himself BECAUSE she was black. I'd just never seen a black woman cast in a role in which a white man felt that guilty for hurting her.
It has nothing to do with her being Black. If she was Asian or Puerto Rican or from Gallifrey, the outcome would have been the same. Bill Sikes didn’t feel guilty at ALL for hurting Nancy. That’s my point. He knew he was about to get caught, so he offed himself. And as long as he was alive, she was gonna be haunting him.
Sophie was BRILLIANT in the role, and that doesn’t diminish her in any way. Bill Sikes just didn’t give a rat’s ass that he murdered her.
