Personal blog. I post about black and queer issues, Star Trek, and other bits of nerd fandoms.

 

"Star Trek" is very conservative, there is a conservatism about "Star Trek" that I think "Deep Space Nine" in a sense went against. It defied that conservatism. "Deep Space Nine" was not as black and white as the other "Star Trek" shows. It was different. It was not people in a rocket ship doing one-night stands on a planet to planet to planet, coming in and battling the evil aliens or some kind of monster or whatever. It was a community unto itself on the edge and this is what I loved about the show, every one of the characters on "Deep Space Nine" had a moral dimension about them. Each one of them was in touch with their dark side.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

Most people say that the Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc. is the most intense show, but the fourth season of The Wire stands above them all.  The Red Wedding is nothing compared to seeing kids in their early teens being fucked for the rest of their lives by underfunded, under-performing, and uncaring institutions.  

But the whole time it wasnt the schools that failed them. It was their parents who failed them long before that.
Dukie and Mike were the sons of drug addicts which forced Dukie to become one and made Mike had to find a way to take care of his little brother.
Randy’s parents (Cheese and Prop Joe’s family) abandoned him forcing him into the foster care of Ms Anna
Namond’s mom literally forced him onto the corner.

bengiyo said: Where do you find these anons???

In the fantastic fish mines conjured from the primordial soup of the universe.

I’m gonna tag this so I can write a short story about a scholar fighting through fish mines while researching primordial bacteria preserved there.
