Hello everyone, and welcome to a new installation of Brain Food At The Movies, wherein I talk about the latest from Marvel Studios, Guardians of the Galaxy!
I tell you, if JJ Abrams has seen this, then he has to be sweating nervously because I think this was not only a great superhero movie, but a great space adventure overall, which is what Star Wars has to be.
It was also good to see people of colour in all ways of life here. Yes, it’s still annoying that the only main characters of colour were blue, green, and gray with red markings (in other words, POC that aren’t REAL POC), but it showed that they exist, which is something that Russel T Davies did during his run of Doctor Who. You got to see POC throughout all different worlds and time periods.
Now, we just need a movie with a leading POC or woman, because if they can make a movie that has us care about a walking talking tree and raccoon, then they can make a movie with a POC or woman.
To say nothing of the myriad of movies, TV shows, and comics that have had leading POC and women that have been successful.
Hello everyone and welcome to another video on white privilege and fandom that I all hope you enjoy. This is only a little bit of what happens in fandom but it’s indicative of what happens on an almost daily occasion, especially when it comes to characters who are from a marginal class, such as being a POC, LGBTQ, disabled, or intersect across them all.
For additional reading, here is the link to the wonderful takedown of Michelle Coltee by Melissa Harris Perry that I mention near the beginning of the video:
