Thank you. I hope it’s clear that I’m not against using the term “white-passing” and that I’m not denying that there are Hispanic people who are just flat-out white (they just are). I just have very little confidence in demographic data when it comes to this sort of thing.

Good God man, you are completely ignorant of how race works in Latin America and you are continuing to insist that you’re right about this. There are a lot of books and papers on this, and a lot of folks here who grew up in Latin American communities, telling you you are wrong. It’s amazing. And gross. White Latinos Read more

This has nothing to do with your discomfort. It’s reality. They’re perfectly comfortable being called “blanco” in Latin America.

You’re conflating two separate concepts here. “White passing” just means that when somebody looks at her, there’s a reasonable chance they think she’s white. “Passing for white” means they’re actively covering up their heritage and pretending to be white. They’re different things. Nobody accused her of doing the Read more

You act like a white dude who knows nothing about what they’re talking about. Judaism is not a racial group. It’s an enthoreligion. You can be a part of the Jewish ethnic group without being religious and vice versa. Ethnicities and race are two separate things. Read more

Maybe instead of insulting PoC for how they choose to label themselves you could just listen to them?

Why? Movies without diverse casts make a ton of money.

I am a little shocked at how casually people are throwing around “white-passing” at the rest of the cast Read more

White-passsing means just that. You pass for white in society as a whole. It’s not an insult. It’s a descriptive. There are Jews who pass for white such as those with European backgrounds and there are Jews who don’t, like black or Persian Jews. Some Jews are religious and some are Atheists who practice for cultural Read more

It’s still accurate, particularly when referring to white Latin Americans who never immigrated to the US and have therefore spent most of their lives comfortably at the top of the heap in that sense. Read more

Diggle is guest starring in a lot of shows in the Arrowverse this season. He was in Batwoman last night. I think he becomes a GL at the end of his guest appearances.

So Diggle from Arrow couldn’t become GL because they had the HBO series in the works, but we get Jade here? Read more

Just because use of force is permitted doesn’t mean it’s an appropriate use of force. These LEOs tazed a 17-year-old who was standing still with hands raised while being fully aware they were on video. What difference does it make if the department does an internal review and determines this is within policy? Who Read more

Then Season 2 and 3 of Discovery are for you. Trust me, I get the hate for the show given the first season, but got past its “TNG curve” very quickly and the last two seasons have been the best Trek on TV in years. (Seriously TNG s1 and half of season 2 are more garbage than some of the worst aspects of Season 1 Disc Read more
