All the colors of the Crystal Gems in Steven Universe

by adampkalb | created - 10 months ago | updated - 8 months ago | Public

Steven Universe was rated #1 in Channel Frederator's Top 10 Most Diverse Cartoons. Since Crystal Gems come in many different colors, it was very cool symbolism to have real people of "color" voice the gem people. Since Big Mouth and Central Park in 2020 suddenly had a problem with white actors voicing biracial half-white kids, because they think only black people should voice black characters, even half-black ones, my mom noticed that the real issue here was that we need to level the playing field, for People Of Color to get as many opportunities for characters as the white people. That is why there is less of an issue with black voicing white, like Darth Vader or Lester Krinklesac. For crying out loud, Helen is a white Central Park character whose actor really is black-white biracial! If you know any of these Crystal Gem names, they are very talented people and deserve more opportunities! Michaela Dietz's Amethyst is my most favorite.
