"White genocide in space". Snowflakes angry at "Star Trek: Discovery" for promoting diversity.

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/05/white-genocide-in-space-racist-fans-seethe-at-diversity-in-new-star-trek-series/

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.

...

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.

What would they think about one of the aliens from "The Left Hand of Darkness"?
They are gender-fluid: Sometimes male, sometimes female, just as they desire.

Or what about a Star Trek-charatcer from a space-colony similar to the one from "The Moon is a harsh Mistress"?
Where a marriage does not consist of one man and one woman but a whole group of people of all ages? It's called a line-marriage and that woman is not "your" wife.

1. I'd love to know where their crying game

is been played out. Which web sites are their nervous breakdown, I would love nothing more than to go visit the dweebs and remind them Star Trek was ALL about accepting those that are different. If they have forgotten that tidbit, they aren't trekkies, they are assholes.

Looks like the 35 years old men that have never progressed from the mommy's basement have listened to their inbred jed family and hate everything not white.

"Let That Be Your Last Battlefield."

Sounds OK to me Star Trek has helped me evolve over the decades.

5. Of course they are.

What a bunch of crybabies. WTF is wrong with these people? It's science FICTION, for pete's sake. It can be whatever the writers decide it should be. I guess the lessons of the Original Series fly right past their heads (by that mean the stories, the casting was not as diverse as it could be, but more diverse than every other show at the time). Roddenberry was somewhat of a progressive, too. I guess they miss that factoid as well.

In any case, why don't they write and produce their own shows? See how far they get with that.

6. There are a number of fan produced Star Trek series

that involved gay characters (Hidden Frontier Productions) and Star Trek: New Voyages.

However, with the new directives limiting the length of future productions and crowd-funding it will be almost impossible for fan productions to rival Paramount. Besides, who really wants to watch a bunch of 40-something balding, obese wannabes with no acting experience pretend as though they just graduated from the academy.

20. Star Trek Continues

http://www.startrekcontinues.com

No acting wannabes there! It's about as faithful a recreation of TOS as possible, and is probably the best fan film series out there.

7. Those fools must really hate "The Matrix" trilogy

Many of the important characters were NOT white and not male. I was very impressed that so many black actors were given a chance to shine.

11. I hate two thirds of the Matrix trilogy.

Nothing to do with racism, though.

10. maybe this old brain is mixing things up, but I seem to remember that ST had people of

different races, from different planets, in all sorts of roles.

(did they wig out when kirk kissed the green woman?)

12. There was some predictable outrage about Kirk and Uhura's "kiss"

From the episode Plato's Stepchildren.

15. I've been rewatching TOS, and I have to say

While the series was progressive in many ways (especially for its time), it was also often blatantly misogynistic. I could count female characters who existed for any reason other than to please men on one hand.

21. It was offset by the presence of Quark.

They had a character that they could admire and emulate.

23. Racist Trekkies are kind of like acrophobic skydivers or undocumented Muslim immigrants for Trump.

I mean, do they know nothing of Gene Roddenberry and why he created the fucking show in the first place?!

24. Star Trek has always been about diversity

Inclusion
Non Interference
1st inter racial kiss on tv
Meeting aliens who are different but still able to communicate with them
Teaching viewers something as they are entertained
As a pre-teen that show taught me alot

25. mirror universe

Hi,

It seems to me that the Mirror Universe has won in Star Trek & has spread to our universe. Now evil & greed is the new order of the day. I think things in our universe will get worse before it gets better, if it gets better at all.
