Speaking of Carnivals
New carnival coming up — the People of Colour SF Carnival. I think it’s an excellent idea for these reasons:
Because Lt. Uhura should have had more lines. (ST: TOS)
Because Kevin Sorbo was jealous of Keith Hamilton Cobb and wrote him out. (Andromeda)
Because among other butchery, the SciFi Channel made Ged white. (EarthSea)
Because Forrest was a plot point and Graham was an extra. (Btvs)
Because Ronon Dex is not a savagely sexual wild man. (SGA)
Because Ford deserved better. (SGA)
Because Goliath showed up only to get killed. (Marvel: CW)
Because Vixen should have been more than the other woman. (JLU)
Because it can feel isolating among other journalers and bloggers.
Because it could encourage other People of Color to speak up more.
Because Carl Lumbly should be remembered for MANTIS.
Because Milestone Media deserved more love.
Because there should be more shows like Afro Saumrai
Because there should be more heroines like Jade and Juniper Lee.
Because Bianca Lawson tried out for the role of Cordelia Chase instead of Kendra. (BtVS)
Because Pete Ross drowned in a sea of nothingness (Smallville)
Because there are illustrators of color who don’t get to put faces like theirs on the front of a SF book.
and so many more you guys obviously know all about. Submission Guidelines, Deadlines, and other explanations here. I definitely plan to submit.
