The left is the Bull Connor of 2017 — policing race mixing by forcing Hollywood to keep white people away from people of color. Witness another demented article from Fusion (Soon be called Splinter in a name reminiscent of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!).
Fusion/Splinter (Flinter? Splusion?) wrote a piece headlined: “Spider-Man Director Brags About His Movie’s Diversity, But Why Is His Spider-Man Still White?” Staff reporter Isha Aran, who covers “representation in media,” writes pretend victim junk like this for a living.
Here’s a money quote from the Spider-Man silliness: “With a supporting cast that consists of biracial women, a Latinx actor as well as a Filipinx actor, Spider-Man: Homecoming’s diversity better reflects reality than most other superhero films.” (Remember, Latinx and Filipinx are not X-men.)
Director Jon Watts (quite possibly a dreaded white guy) didn’t go far enough for Aran, who asked: “if diversity is both as important as Watts claims and as lucrative as the evidence shows, why is this movie still centered around the same old white people we’ve seen a million times?”
