Burning Down the Old Narrative

#RepresentationMatters. My entire life the vast majority of the time there was a single Black character that was barely part of the story, was never integral, and was either only there to die in service of the white characters, for comedic relief, to dance, or to just silently represent tokenism as if they were a broken and forgotten manakin that some (actually important) white character once called a “friend”, or simply managed to put up with the presence of, in a previous scene. And somehow, to this day in 2021, the presence of said useless manakin proves all the white people involved in the movie are… *not*… racists. The only… Read More

All Lives Matter: Restrictions Apply

My mind takes me to the X-Men. Are we seen as mutants? Why can’t we be treated equally? We have to understand that yes some cops are bad, not all blacks are criminals, all whites are not racists, all Mexicans are not illegal and all Muslims are not terrorists.
