You’re seriously comparing being a Star Trek fan to first nations’ heritage? Did you ever face persecution? Is your language in danger of ever being erased? “I can’t bother to be a little accommodating to people who face racism every day, they should watch Star Trek so they stop being so sensitive!” That’s you, you Read more

Okay, so you are an asshole to whom empathy and understanding don’t matter.

So, you’re comparing the importance of a tv show to the importance a culture that has existed for hundreds of years?

You’re still an asshole who’s unable to muster some empathy or understanding as to why people have a problem with this.

Is your neighbour part of a minority that has and continues to face discrimination, and their ancestors faced dehumanization and repeated attempts of having their culture erased, and your behaviour can be taken as racist since it can be read as you approving of those things even if it wasn’t your original intention?

If you were to walk through any native american community (in American or Canada, doesn’t matter) with a flag that says “Assimilate”, how do you think that would go?

Because we’ve inherited comic book universes where every character is white unless they HAD to be non-white, either because they were a racist caricature or because the writer was specifically making a comic rhat would address race. The default was white, and all of the biggest characters were made white. Because Read more

The character is heavily steeped in Asian traditions, culture, and lore. Having him be an actual Asian person rather than a white saviour is far less racist and much more interesting. Adding yet another mid 30s blonde white guy to the MCU is just a boring and uncesseary choice.

Uh... you do know that Asians weren’t even allowed to be martial arts stars in American media until fairly recently, right? Kung-Fu was developed by Bruce Lee but the executives made them cast this guy...

I think that they need to downplay the Asian influences and play-up the alien and other-dimensional nature of K’un Lun and make the city look weird and multi-cultural.

Are they brave enough to actually cast an Asian actor, or will they succumb to “tradition” and pull the whole mighty-whitey-is-superior garbage?

I will miss reading “Secrets of Shield” every week. Every installation left me impressed by the level of detail, depth of knowledge and careful analysis it contained— and the amounts of time, effort and care that obviously went into its preparation! It’s an understatement to say that my enjoyment of Agents of SHIELD - Read more

I was enamored by dinosaurs as a kid. Aside from DinoRiders, my parents also got me a lot of the "Playskool Definitely Dinosaurs" toys. Most of the dinos were made from soft plastic/rubber, had some moveable parts, came with a caveman (and sometimes a saddle) and most looked pretty damn cool. Far as I know, my parents
