White genocide in space: Racist fans seethe at diversity in new Star Trek series

‘White genocide in space’: Racist fans seethe at diversity in new ‘Star Trek’ series
Brad Reed 24 May 2017 at 09:26 ET


The new series Star Trek Discovery stars Asian actress Michelle Yeoh as the ship’s captain and black actress Sonequa Martin-Green as her first officer — and this has caused some Trekkies to fret about the lack of white men in charge.

While the overall reaction to the new Star Trek trailer has been positive — although there are the usual complaints from Star Trek fans about continuity errors — one group of fans is particularly upset about the show’s diverse cast of characters.

As both Heat Street and Daily Kos point out, the series’ YouTube page has been bombarded by comments labeling the show a “SJW” plot aimed at shoving “political correctness,” “forced diversity,” and even “cultural Marxism” down viewers’ throats.

Additionally, some angry Twitter users have even proclaimed that the show’s diverse cast is evidence of a “white genocide” conspiracy aimed at eliminating the white race from the face of the Earth.

7. Oh, good grief! This is simply continuing Roddenberry's mindset.

Gene Roddenberry was WAY ahead of his time when Star Trek was made in the 60's. He purposely included racial diversity in his casting. He was a genius.

Anyone complaining is obviously NO real Trekkie!

9. Have they even watched Star Trek?

The predominance of white male captains notwithstanding (which I still think is largely driven by perceptions of what is commercially viable by overcautious producers), "Star Trek" has always been about inclusion. Creator Gene Roddenberry said as much from the get-go. From the premiere of the original series, the show has attempted to feature a future that was multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and even multi-species.

Do these bozos even remember that two of Trek's mid-90s spinoffs ("Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager" featured an African-American male and a female captain respectively?

Interestingly, this does make me think of the plot of 1992's "Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country" which essentially featured a conspiracy among reactionary Klingons and Starfleet officers hoping to derail peace between their respective people, and thwart the Klingon-Federation alliance featured in "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

Gene Rodenberry made a point of diversity from Day 1. That's why the original crew had an African American woman, a Russian, a Chinese, and even a guy from another freaking planet!

12. Last time I checked...

Star Trek has always been progressive when it comes to such things. The first ever interracial kiss on television occurred between Kirk and Uhura. The main cast of the Original Series had a Black woman and a Japanese man on the crew. Further, there have been a few black captains and a woman captain in Deep Space None and Voyager, respectively.

These precious triggered snow flakes must not have ever seen any star trek.

To air the first episode on CBS. The problem is, I don't think there will be enough people signing up for it to give it good enough ratings for it to survive the first season. This is a stupid move to try to save their streaming service because if it were on aired on CBS it would have amazing ratings.

The only reason I could think of them putting it on streaming only is because it will have sex or nudity.

There is no "White race". The only definition is necessarily exclusionary meaning that Asians, African Americans, Latinos (who can be pretty White), Native Americans, etc... are "not White".

Can someone define "White race" to me?

33. In some aspects, Star Trek has always described the liberal dream

Especially considering TOS is now 50 years old.

- They don't use money (or at least money is not as important to them, they rarely talk about it)
- There's kind-of equal treatment of women (60s...) and in younger spin-offs, women work as captain and are very well-respected just like their male colleagues
- Disabled (blind) crew members can really achieve a lot
- Humans (of African, Asian, European or whatever descent) working together with actual aliens

Also, the story lines feature pretty left-wing ethics quite often. Humane treatment for wrong-doing instead of life-long prison sentences, trying to promote equality among other species, advancing science, etc..

Of course, some elements now appear a little weird and backwards and possibly not really liberal when watching TOS after 50 years.

I've always liked the show(s), it's an inspiration.

40. It is interesting to watch 50 years out.

The vast majority of it is relatively "progressive" especially if one considers the time in which it was written. The female uniforms, not to mention the way almost every alien woman was dressed, was ridiculously unpractical by any measure. (Would a women really go into harms way in stockings?). And there were a few too many "damsel in distress" scenes/plots. But they got alot of stuff "right", especially considering it was written 50 years ago. And to complain today that the casts are "too diverse" would be absurd. "Whites" (Europeans) make up a small slice of earth population, and would be an almost odd slice of the universe population (presuming that aliens are rarely pale in pigmentation).

37. Anybody who is a Star Trek fan

and is upset about the diversity on the show obviously missed the point a long time ago. In just about every incarnation of Trek, there's been one push after another forward in terms of promoting diversity. The original Star Trek had an African-American woman (and the first interracial kiss), an Asian, and a Russian character. Star Trek Deep Space Nine featured an African-American commander/captain and Star Trek Voyager featured a female captain and the last Star Trek movie re-wrote Sulu to be gay.

45. I was really starting to dig Chris Pine as "James Kirk", too. :(

 

He has quite the swagger and bravado William Shattner originally portrayed.

IMO, every other Star Trek captain doesn't measure up. It always felt to me like Patrick Stewart was a history teacher out of league, Avery Brooks was some sort of outer space camp counselor, and Kate Mulgrew was some kind of helicopter parent to the ship's crew. Although she kind of looked like my own mother... so the parent vibe might just be my own fabrication.

Hope Michelle Yeoh can deliver the goods.

I'm really stunned that people are griping about the lack of diversity. What? Because there aren't mostly men? (And white men at that?) Hell, they should have ships staffed almost completely by alien species! How 'bout a Vulcan captain? Or Andorian? Or Bajoran? Or Betazoid? Or a crew that includes a token Romulan?

59. Welcome to DU, JoeStuckInOH!

Chris Pine does a great job - and he's the feature film Captain Kirk. I'm a trekker from WAY back, and I've loved every series but somehow Deep Space Nine seems to be my favorite. I just love ALL those characters and their various story arcs.

Original series: I had a crush on Mr. Spock.

Next Generation: I had (and still have) a crush on Patrick Stewart. I thought he made an outstanding captain of a different kind than swaggering brawny Jim Kirk - more cerebral and more of a diplomat than a warrior. I thought that was COOL!

Deep Space Nine: Just the absolute coolest. For all kinds of reasons.

Voyager: Left me with a new slogan - WWJD (What Would Janeway Do?). First of all, I was DELIGHTED to have a female captain. She inspired me. She could swagger with the best of 'em, go to battle stations with the best of 'em, and diplomatically handle funky situations with the best of 'em. Thought Kate Mulgrew was truly MARVELOUS!

Enterprise: Frankly I'm still trying to get into that one. Something just hasn't jelled for me on that one. Maybe it's the piss-poor disgrace of an opening theme song. The music sounds like she cobbled together parts of other songs she'd already attempted and gave up on. And the lyrics - CRIMINY!!! The lyrics are the LAMEST ever!!! Every time we try to watch it, I just grit my teeth and hiss "LAME!!! Just damn LAME!!!" Never heard lyrics that lousy and utterly meaningless and just one cliche after another! Even I could write a better theme song and I'm NO songwriter whatsoever! My husband and I make fun of it and the Rod Stewart-wannabe vocalist who seems to have only one vowel in his arsenal. It shouldn't even HAVE a vocalist. It should be an instrumental like all the rest of 'em are. Maybe songwriter Diane Warren is an award-winner and lives in luxury in Malibu and is at the top of her industry and writes hits and is respected all over everywhere, but that theme of hers SUCKS. STINKS!!! Shame on her! Sounds like she was out of ideas and just threw the damn thing together at the last minute because she had to turn SOMETHING in by the deadline. I found it so off-putting that I didn't even want to watch the series! It's long into reruns lo these many years later, but I'm still just starting to force myself to get into it. Funny how a bad theme song can sour even a loyal viewer on the whole project. I didn't even bother trying to get into "Enterprise" until after it had been canceled. It still misses the mark with me.

But then again, I was one of those hoping for a series that took us inside Star Fleet Academy...

Looking forward to this new one, though. VERY excited about this!

63. Picard out of his league? He's the most bad-ass of all the captains.

Hell, he had an artificial heart he earned in a bar room brawl when he was young.

Patrick Stewart played the part very well of a man struggling to to keep that aspect of himself contained, to be the diplomat when all he really wanted to do was punch someone in the face or turn the starships of unreasonable aliens into radioactive dust.

He's the one I'd least want as an adversary.

Honestly, these morons almost make me want to see "eliminating the white race from the face of the Earth" if they're the ones representing it, and I'm glow-in-the-dark Irish white.

I think Jughead and his pals (probably in Macedonia) would do well to rethink this one.

I love Michelle Yeoh! Sounds like a great start - she has the gravitas to be captain! Superb choice of actress! Don't know as much about Sonequa Martin-Green yet but this sounds tremendously exciting!!! Why the hell would we not have a black first officer? Why would we not have a black woman as first officer? It's a signature of the whole Star Trek "thing" for Pete's sake. Diversity. Period. Deal with it!

And we haven't had an Asian captain as a series lead before. So that's pretty neat, too. Came closest when Mr. Sulu was promoted to captain, but only in guest star status.

Can't wait!!!!

61. The only issues I have with the show are superficial...

There's the obvious continuity issues with both the sets and uniforms. And also there's the issue of CBS putting this show on a station that someone would have to pay for, rather than regular TV.

But if this puppy goes on to piss off white supremacists only because of its casting, then I'm a supporter.

Great job!

62. Oh, cry me a fucking river.

White folks worrying about being a minority are white people with nothing going for them now except their white skin.

The cries of the "At least I'm white" tribe of losers bemoaning their fate because they are afraid that they will be treated as they have treated other people.

They assume everyone is as hate filled and ugly as they are.

Oh, it would be poetic justice - but their betters are their better for a reason.

No worries white sheet dandruff flakes, we won't do to you what you have done to the rest of us.

Which isn't to say your fear doesn't taste good - it does. Nom, nom, nom.

65. An entire point of Star Trek from the very beginning, has been diversity.

It was a deliberate theme Gene Roddenberry incorporated. A rainbow-hued vision of the future where things like race and nationality were transcended.

idiots.
