Did none of y’all watch How the Universe Works? Because literally every single one of these topics was covered in depth on that series…
It’s just saying these are things we have found out since Carl’s Cosmos went off air. The discoveries wet have made since then.
So I’m hispanic and Iw as wondering, oh well lets see how many hispanic characters are around in that pop culture since I know we hardly ever get to see people of color in media. What I found was worth a laugh.
Here is a few in Video…Wait so are we forgetting about Dom Santiago from Gears of War?
I’m not latin@ but i think he had a a pretty decent fleshed out character and was not stereotypical? i mean yes, better representation and more of it, but don’t forget him!
There’s also James Vega, Steve Cortez and Ashley Williams in Mass Effect 3 but i haven’t played that game yet to see how they were characterized.
but yes, better/more representation!
I’m so happy to see this post getting another resurgence of notes. This is something that should really be getting discussed.
I am not into the Gears series so I can’t really comment on him.
The ME3 characters for sure aren’t sterotypes but I feel like all three weren’t really round characters and given that it’s set in the future where almost everyone on earth would be mix raced since current trends in breeding have show that it’s the future we are getting it’s good to at lest seem them not make everyone on the crew who is human white.
Anyway I just wanted to thank everyone who is reblogging and liking and i’m happy to see a post I made spark this much conversation.
Hold the up where is Jaime Reyes AKA the current blue beetle? DC has been trying hard as hell to get him known. He had an amazing first run when he first came out but it was cancelled cause not enough attention was given to it. But they have also put him into Batman The brave and the bold, Young justice, and they were also pitching a possible live action show for him.
I am a bit angered by this is because his character isn’t just “generic Latino”. He is a teenager with family and friends who has suddenly been given this amazing power and tries to do the best he can with while asking for help from current heroes. He is exactly what you want in a minority character. The fact that he is Latino isn’t forced into the writing, its woven very well into his character through his actions and mannerism.
You guys should read the first Jaime Reyes blue beetle run, its starts off a bit bumpy but it gets good real fast. and he has an amazing set of supporting characters that include his family, friends, and several major DC heroes. Help spread the word of this amazing character and if enough people go “Hey this is how its done right” maybe more minority characters will start taking the spot light faster.
Gov. Patrick has signed the new anti-upskirting bill into law.
This was drafted and passed in a day.
It’s amazing what can be done when you put your mind to it.
A DAY? That is excellent. Go Massachusetts.
Personally, though, I’m not gonna fucking forget that this had to happen in response to the state high court ruling upskirting perfectly fucking legal in the first place.
It is important to read articles in their entirety when they go around. The Massachusetts lawmakers actually did good the whole time. They were constrained by the current laws when the case about upskirt photos came before them and ended up having to admit that the laws currently found nothing illegal about them.
Which is why the rushed to change them. They were just as not okay with it as the rest of us.
There are many times when outdated laws that have gone unfixed due to not being relevant rear their ugly heads again in the modern day. We need lawmakers like this who are willing to look at these old laws when stuff like this happens and do what these people did. To say “this is not acceptable” and change things for the better.
