All aboard the mothafuckin Diversitrain!

Fo real tho, this aint bad. Twi be lookin like a dorky ass Indian (dot, not feather). Ponk be lookin like a fun-lovin chunky mulatto or somethin. All of the hairstyles coordinate well with both the character and race, and the color schemes are pleasing. In short, they look like realistic representations of race, not just white girls painted black. If you gon do diversity, this how yall niggas should do it.

Then there's motherfuckin man-dash. She could almost work but somethin be off with that face, prolly the nose. She also got a sorta thickness to her that dont seem to coordinate with her athletic personality.

Hrm. I've seen Vanilla Pie and Chocolate Pie but I think is the first time I saw Cinnamon Pie.

I think Applejack should be a bit more tanned from outside work, though.

It's about motives, really. Forced diversity is when a person adds a non-white skin color simply because they want to have one somewhere, without any reason for it. If they do it because they like how the character looks with it, that's not forced diversity. If they think it makes sense with their background, it's not forced diversity. It's only when the race is changed to avoid them being white that it becomes a problem.

@Background Pony
Those two things are not mutually exclusive, and whether or not it is intentional, the original assessment still stands. Skin color is not a legitimate character trait in the literary sense of the word. (Which is an aspect of someone's personality or behavior that gives them character.)

The fact that people who complain about "forced diversity," are treating skin color as a character trait is equally silly, and indicative of the double standard.

The great thing about the term "forced diversity," is that it assumes that being white is normal, and that being non-white is abnormal, something that is forced upon normal people. Clearly, such abnormality stems from sinister motives.

I just can't see it in my head canon

I mean, Rarity not being taller than Rainbow Dash? That's just unbelievable!

In all seriousness, I think they have the requisite amounts of spunkiness, casual glamour, and adorkable respectively.
