An all-female Ghostbusters cast and a Michael Bay directed Ninja Turtles movie in which (Spoiler, but who cares?) April kills Shredder. I hope feminists are happy that white knights are pandering to their delicate egos at the expense of beloved franchises. 

My childhood is essentially dead at this point. 

If TMNT can survive both Shredder and April being turned white, I think it can survive a change in the fundamental dramatic relationships among the characters.

revolving around the lives of employees at a hokey haunted mansion tourist trap that turn out to be actually hella haunted but most of its spirits are either benevolent or ineffectively malevolent





Racial bias in America: from higher suspension rates in preschool, to disproportionate rates of capital punishment, to everything in between, structures of authority routinely allow anti-Black racial bias to color the “facts”, and warp the narrative. And frequently (whether unintentional or otherwise) the police and the media often work together to further criminalize innocent Black victims

3. Author and CNN contributor keithboykin: how the AP slandered Renisha McBride even in death

4.  The Associated Press: when can skin color alone determine who is and who isn’t a looter? (hint: don’t be Black)

This implicit racial bias does not magically stop at innocuous events like the VMAs, or in Hollywood. So far, it doesn’t ever turn off. There are two Americas and racial bias is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe

They just figured this out?
