CNN is the go to for white conservative people trying to “discredit” supposed “narratives”. They know their liberal friends won’t accept the Fox News information. But CNN supposedly represents the liberal mainstream media. This is pretty laughable if you actually watch CNN. They bend over backwards to be neutral on … Continue Reading CNN and Meaningless Statistics That White People Love
It is amazing what one small change can do. I want to watch the entire film that way.
Last night I watched as black person after black person stood up to condemn the rioting in Baltimore. They stated clearly they thought this was wrong, that these young people throwing rocks and concrete and wounding cops were thugs and trouble making opportunists out to create mayhem.

In a statement that surprised nobody, Kevin Feige confirmed that the new Spider-Man will be Peter Parker. I typed that sentence on April 15th. Then, I got a message that my father had died. Suddenly this did not seem all that important for me. This is why I have not … Continue Reading All New Spider-Man (In With the Old)

She has had a fairly successful start to her own series. Cho decided the best way to recognize the character is to do an … Continue Reading Feminists Are Not Trying To Break Your Toys
One genre that takes a lot of hits for diversity is Fantasy. And considering how often fantasy books can be very white (*cough*Game of Thrones*couch*) it is a just point. A common defense is that it is a set in a time and location where there were not non-white people. … Continue Reading But It Is Fantasy
I get the excitement behind doing a pre-origin show like Gotham or Smallville. But I think it puts interesting limitations that the showrunners are unwilling to abide by. They want to set the show before the hero exists, so we can see the buildup to that heroic introduction. It does … Continue Reading Restraint Needed
So, in the wake of the Indiana Religious Freedom law, a reporter went out and started to ask local businesses if they would still serve gay people. One small Pizza joint totally bit, saying they would not serve gays. The internet explodes with this confirmation of what some of us worried … Continue Reading Threats Are Not Protest
28 Page Why Nickleback is Awesome Manifesto. Rejected because while making fun of Nickleback is easy, they are not “28 pages of pretending they are awesome” easy. Racism/Sexism/Homophobia: Just Get Over It Already/Offended? Suck It Up Already Why White Men Should Be able to Use the “N Word” Why Gamergate … Continue Reading Some Rejected April Fools Posts
