Much controversy has surrounded the casting of  Noma Dumezweni, a black woman, as Hermione. Many people have complained that Hermione is a white character. Well, I think that’s utter rubbish, and JK Rowling clearly agrees, as she noted on Twitter how Hermione was never specified as white.

I could talk for a lot longer about this, but I don’t want to just repeat what everyone else has said. My feelings on the matter are summed-up perfectly by the post below from Mugglenet.

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts; I’ve got tickets to see Harry Potter and The Cursed Child in August, and I cannot wait to see Noma smash it!
