THE NEW STAR TREK SERIES
IS VERY MUCH ANTICIPATED AND
PEOPLE ARE EXCITED.
THERE IS ONE
GROUP THAT HAS BEEN EXTREMELY

CRITICAL BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE
CASTING DECISIONS.
IT DOES STAR
AN ASIAN ACTRESS.

THE SAME TYPE
OF PEOPLE THAT CRITICIZE THE
CASTING DECISIONS ARE ALSO THE
PEOPLE THAT COMPLAIN ABOUT

THINGS LIKE THE ARMENIAN
GENOCIDE.
JUST A FEW EXAMPLES
OF TWEETS OUT THERE.

>>THAT IS COUNTER TO HOW IT
WOULD EVEN WORK.

>>IT SOUNDS LIKE A STAR
TREK SPACESHIP.

>> STAR TREK HAS HAD DIVERSE
CAST IN THE PAST.

THE FIRST
INTERRACIAL KISS HAPPENED ON
STAR TREK.
IT IS INTERESTING
THESE PEOPLE ARE RILED UP ABOUT

SOMETHING THEY CLAIM TO NOT KNOW
MUCH ABOUT.

I WANT YOU GUYS TO
JUMP IN ABOUT THESE PHOTOS
BECAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE MORE

KNOWLEDGEABLE THAN I AM.
JUMP IN
AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK.

>>I HAVE SOMETHING I
WOULD LIKE TO SAY.

>>WHOOPI GOLDBERG.
>>STAR TREK WAS AN ATTEMPT TO
SAY THAT HUMANITY WILL REACH

MATURITY AND WISDOM ON THE DAY
THAT BEGINS NOT JUST TO TOLERATE
BUT TO TAKE SPECIAL DELIGHT IN

DIFFERENCES AND IDEAS AND
LIFEFORMS.

IF WE CANNOT LEARN TO
ENJOY THOSE SMALL DIFFERENCES,
HERE ON THIS PLANET THAN WE DO

NOT DESERVE TO GO OUT INTO SPACE
AND MEET THE DIVERSITY THAT IS

MOST CERTAINLY OUT THERE.
THAT
IS FROM A BOOK CALLED STAR TREK

PHILOSOPHY.
IS A QUOTE FROM GENE
RODDENBERRY, THE CREATOR OF STAR

TREK AND THE ONE RESPONSIBLE FOR
ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN BE A FAN

OF IN THE STAR TREK WORLD.
HE
BELIEVED THROUGH HIS PERSONAL

QUOTES AND STORYLINES THAT
DIVERSITY WAS KEY.

THE POINT OF
STAR TREK IS TO LOOK AT IT
HOPEFUL POSSIBLE FUTURE IN WHICH

WE HAVE DISCARDED THE STUPID AND
USELESS IDEAS OF HATRED AND

FOCUSED ON SOMETHING MORE
EXEMPLARY OF WHAT WE COULD BE.
IS NOT ABOUT PHASERS OR BANGING

GREEN WOMEN, IT IS ABOUT
HUMANITY AND HOW GREAT WE CAN BE

IF WE ONLY FOCUS OURSELVES.
IF
YOU DON'T GET THAT YOU DON'T

DESERVE TO BE PART OF THIS
MISSION.
DISMISSED, THAT IS A
STARFLEET EXPRESSION FOR GET

OUT.
>> STAR TREK HAS BEEN ON A
MISSION IN FAVOR OF WHITE

GENOCIDE FROM THE BEGINNING.
BRETT, ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT
YOUR SAFETY AS A WHITE MAN?

>>I AM GENERALLY WORRIED ABOUT
MY SAFETY BUT THAT IS BECAUSE I

AM WORRIED ABOUT VOLCANOES.
I DO
THINK STAR TREK IS A LITTLE

RACIST ONLY WHEN IT IS LIKE
THOSE VULCANS, THEY ARE SO

LOGICAL.
>>THE POINT OF SPOCK ñ HE IS
HALF VULCAN AND HUMAN, THAT IS A

WAY TO SURPASS THE POINT OF
HUMAN RACISM.

THEY DON'T ACCEPT
HIM NO MATTER WHAT.
HE IS SUCH
AN INTERESTING CHARACTER BUT HE

IS SUCH AN INTERESTING CASE
STUDY WITHIN THAT WORLD AND THE
META-OF THE WORLD.

>>WOW.
>> I AM TOTALLY WITH YOU.
IT
EXPOSES THIS ONE DYNAMIC THAT

HAPPENS ALL THE TIME WERE
SOMEONE JUST KNOWS THAT THEY

WANT TO DISAGREE IN A SPECIFIC
WAY SO THEY DON'T EVEN BEGIN TO
APPRECIATE THE SOURCE MATERIAL

THAT INCITED THIS
DISAGREEMENT.
LOOK AT THE
ORIGINAL STAR TREK, ALL THE

WHITE DUDES WERE SUCH NERDS.
AND
THE OTHER WHITE GUY HAS TO BE A

COMMUNIST.
>>THE THING I FIND SUPER
INTERESTING IS HOW MUCH THIS

NOTION OF REVERSE RACISM HAS
WORSE.

NOW YOU HAVE A CERTAIN
GROUP OF WHITE PEOPLE WHO PAY
SUCH CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE

CASTING DECISIONS OF VARIOUS
SHOWS AND THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE
THERE IS ENOUGH WHITE PEOPLE

THERE.
I AM WHITE, BRIGHT AS
WHITE, I DON'T WANT TO SPEAK FOR

YOU.
>> I'M ENJOYING SOME PRIVILEGE,
I WILL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> I NEVER WATCH A SHOW OR A
MOVIE WITH A CRITICAL EYE

REGARDING WHITE CASTING.
THERE
IS SOMETHING SUPER WRONG WITH

YOU IF YOU ARE THAT INSECURE.
YOU HAVE EVERYTHING.
>> YOU UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT
REPRESENTATION IS IF YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU HAVE NOT BEEN
REPRESENTED.
IT IS SO IMPORTANT
ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A KID

SEEING SOMEONE THAT SOMEONE
LOOKS LIKE YOU.

DOESN'T HAVE TO
BE RACE, IT CAN BE YOUR BODY
SHAPE OR SOMETHING ELSE.
WHEN
YOU SEE A CHARACTER REPRESENTED

THAT LOOKS LIKE YOU, YOU FEEL
VALIDATED.
IT CAN MEAN EVERYTHING IF YOU
ARE A CHILD LOOKING AT THIS
