This little post will be short and sweet, and it's about the new Star Trek series ST:Discovery.
From what I understand, there are a lot of people who are upset because this new series has a diverse cast of characters.
There is a woman who is part black terran and part Vulcan who is First Officer, an Asian female as her captain, and more POC on the show.
These people, who I will call trolls, feel that white men are being excluded from the show. Some of these trolls are even referring to this new show as 'white genocide in space!'
I kid you not.
There was an article on this particular topic on an online magazine called NextShark, which I believe has a focus on Asian-American culture. This article put a spotlight on the racist, sexist and homophobic rants of these simpleton trolls who claim to be the "true fans of Star Trek." They even go so far as to say that most 'hardcore' fans are white and male without backing up that statement with any numbers.
Talk about living in the age of post truth.
I was truly disgusted by the ugly comments that these trolls had nerve enough to post. Talk about making the mind reel!
Well, I would like to make a comment on my thoughts about the new show and the response by these entitled dickless morons and their sense of victimhood, and it's this…
Not one of you pathetic dweebs know squat about Star Trek.
The legacy of Star Trek is not just about the beaming up, phasers, and hot alien women…
It's also about its diversity!
A huge part of Star Trek's success was about its tolerance, its celebration of differences and equality for everyone.
It has never been exclusively about straight white men in space and to hell with everyone else, okay?
If you can't get that, if you have to resort to calling the black actress a 'dirty nigger' and say that the Asian actress needs to learn how to speak English, then you don't get the main point of Star Trek, nor did you ever get the main point of Star Trek.
Gene Roddenberry must be rolling in his grave. Seriously rolling in his grave.

I will give you the link. If the link doesn't work there's always Goggling.
Drop me a line and tell me what you think, but do so constructively or your comment will disappear into space.
Enjoy this day.
