    Yes, wanted to say that as well. Someone was going for edgelord points with it.

    From the "white male" crew you get: Checkov who is a commie asiatic untermensch Russian, Sulu being Asian/Japanese with those being discriminated and demonized in USA since forever.
    Only truly white main cast members are Kirk, McCoy and Scotty. Spock is an alien remember...

    And oh boy Uhura. Scandal no 1, female officer, unspeakable. Scandal no 2, black women in the navy?! Outrageous! And to top it all, number 3, interracial kiss! Horrendous, disgusting, race mixing in my TV in 1969! What is happening with America!
    Don't forget that Leonard Nimoy was a Jew whose parents immigrated from Ukraine.

    Yeah, I know, your island only has white people on it. Not surprised you all are a bit behind the times.

    That's because my other post was about that, not this. It started with a ridiculous article about how terrible and heartless America is and I just wanted to point out that there are sectors (the tech industry and hollywood come to mind) where they're busy flagellating themselves over not being progressive enough and firing people for saying bad things.

    Ironically these industries also have basically nothing to show for their non stop virtue signalling. Well, okay we got one movie that broke new ground by being the first superhero movie ever with a black lead. Except for Blade. But that was then, we don't talk about Blade. Even if it was a pretty good movie. Or Spawn. You don't see his face so that doesn't count. I'm going off on a tangent. What was I talking about again?

    I think the non-activist left should do a better job of shutting them the hell up rather than bending over backward to avoid looking like they might offend someone.

    last I checked Trump was the hero of the young conservative right

    also the current top Republican

    so yeah I'm pretty sure they'd all consider themselves conservative

    are you going to tell me that Trump voters aren't real conservatives?

    At least they're more honest with their shittery, the rest of them are just in denial
