The disliking of Danny Pink is reminding me of when some TenxRose shippers hated Martha. It just feels like half the reasons are dismissive and grasping at straws to build foundless “reasons” he is a bad character only to hide the fact some of the fans just straight out don’t like him because of a desire for Clara and the Doctor to be together.

Truth! And…racism.

This episode made me very uncomfortable. I did not like the Doctor’s reactions or interaction with Danny Pink at all. 

Everything about it was off. 

Already there is hate for Danny Pink or that he’s evil.

They were about to flip a table for a nonwhite Doctor but a nonwhite Master is okay. And when they first released the picture of him, they were already comparing him to Mickey Smith. *sigh*

I find it strange that all the recurring people of color are hated by the fandom. Like Mickey Smith is called Mickey the idiot or a wimp. Martha Jones is hated for being clingy, useless, and for falling in love with the Doctor.

Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there? 
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable.

Yes you are enough!
