Whitewashing - if it’s not a picket fence, just don’t do it.

Whitewashing

Casting a white actor in a role that should be played by an actor of color. Death Note, New Mutants, Dr. Strange, Gods of Egypt, Aloha, Ghost in the Machine are just a few examples. With guests A’isha and Luke, the Snarkers discuss this historical problem.

Collective Snark - Wonder Woman

 

In which the Snarkers rave over Wonder Woman. We talk about what it meant to us to see this strong, powerful woman portrayed on screen as a warrior. We talk about Antiope and Amazon warriors and Steve Trevor and the multi-cultural team and that amazing, empowering, inspiring, emotional walk into no-man’s lands. We embrace, once again, the sexualization of the Chrisses. (we are for it).

You guys, we loved this movie. Is it perfect? No. But, just like Wonder Woman’s thigh jiggle does not make her less strong, this movie’s imperfections don’t make it less inspiring.

 

Wonder Woman!

Diversity is Killing Comics????

 

In which the Snarkers discuss Daniel Gabriel’s now infamous quote regarding the effect of diversity on comic sales. With our guests Billy and A’isha, we talk about comics, what is a comic, the context of the original quote, the importance of representation, babies, how fantastic the 2018 Black Panther looks, Diamond Comics and its impact on the industry monopoly over comic distribution, and give a spontaneous review of Baby Driver.

Nerdists post on the subject
