I read a lot that how awful is the fact the main villain from HTTYD 2 is a black man. But he doesn’t look like a black man to me. First his physical description at the official dreamworks website says : his eyes are green.
Okay his skin is darker, guess what, people who live in south of Europe for example have darker skin than the ones who live in north of Europe. You know , the sun… Vikings , scottish, being blonds , red hair, very white and their skin can’t bear sunburn very well while southern europeans, being darker hair , darker skin because of the sun exposure and the fact their skin absord better the sunburns. I could guess Drago is from meditterannean countries… There are a lot of mediterranean countries, he could be a southern slavic as well.
Some will say but the actor who plays him , is black. Yes and America Ferrara matches Astrid physical appearance like a twin lol.
Darker skin doesn’t mean a black guy and some will say look at his hair cut …. Yeah, tuffnut has the same except he is blond.
Other say drago has no other motivation than to conquer and dominate, it’s weak… well , remember at what time period the movie is supposed to be : what else he needs? It was what men with power did at that time period, go to conquer and dominate, it was the main goal and hobby . No need to explain more.
Plus, he gives a small motive in his lines. Obviously, it was a dragon that took his arm, and he said that he did not want to live in fear, which eventually warped into something darker. I didn’t even know about this; people are seriously upset because the main villain is a “black man?” It seems people these days are just trying to find any excuse they can to be offended.
