the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to an endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.

ooooooooh i actually like this a LOT

#so many amazing men and women of colour portraying one character through the ages #why couldn’t we have this?

I find this to be REALLY dumb on numerous levels.  The reason Doctor Who is great is because of the actors, white though they were.  If you wanna go off and start your own show that’s wonderfully imaginative and highly addictive that runs for 50 years, then by all means, go ahead. 
But Doctor Who is a man, and the guy(s) who invented Doctor Who wanted it to be that way.  Re-appropriating this character isn’t constructive, it’s tearing down another human beings work and saying “This isn’t as legitimate because it’s a white dude playing this character.” 

Am I gonna get called a racist?  Probably. 
Am I a racist?  No.  Fuck you. 
The point being, someone else made Doctor Who, a bunch of white guys made Doctor Who.  It was THEIR PROJECT.  IT’S NOT YOUR VEHICLE FOR DIVERSITY.  IT’S WHATEVER THEY WANT IT TO BE.  The fact that Doctor Who is a white male is only the symptom of a problem.  People of color were not and are not properly represented in modern media.  It’s not Doctor Who’s fault he’s a white guy, but you can’t change that.  Come up with a better show, come up with a DIFFERENT SHOW. 

Politically, the idea that people would want to change a property, or desire change within a property because of the skin color of the protagonist is disgusting, come up with your own. 

How can someone be so obtuse? Is Doctor Who not a being that supposedly transcends race and gender? Portraying this character as a different crusty white man each time goes against this very principle. And yes, you are racist.

I live a 30 minute drive from here and this is an utter and complete tragedy. My heart goes out to all of the victims and their families and I am hoping that they all recover fully from this terrifying act.

I am wondering, though, about the elephant in the room: white male violence.

With each tragedy and incident of mass violence perpetrated at the hands of white men, these discussions come up, although white progressives usually subsume them under discussions about gun control (which is also necessary, but let us not forget that white men also have disproportionate gun ownership in this country over other racial and gender groups). The Newton massacre was yet another reminder of this, and now again, today:

White boy walks into school (or other public institution), and goes on a rampage wounding or killing dozens in the process.

Why is this not surprising anymore? Well the facts:

70% of mass killings in the U.S. since 1982 have been by white men

Check out this timeline of mass shootings in the U.S. to see for yourself.

Many of us POC and black folks in particular wax long about this, but what if the statistics were reversed and 70% of mass killings in the U.S. were being committed by black men rather than white men? How would that not spark a national conversation about black male violence and also be used to pathologize black men as (even more) criminal and violent?

But at the same time, it’s so clear that the ways in which whiteness and maleness operates is by conferring invisibility on the subject. It allows us to give these boys and men the benefit of the doubt, when we would never do the same for a POC. It allows us to be willfully obtuse about the need for us to address male violence across all racial lines (due to patriarchy)  and specifically white male violence and their internalized desire to control their environments and surroundings, leading to these incidents of mass violence (due to white supremacist patriarchy). 

We would think that in a country where violence and genocide perpetrated by white men has been with us since 1492, that this wouldn’t be a conversation that we could somehow “miss.” You would think that with incident after incident of mass violence, that we would try to address the larger systems of domination (white supremacist capitalist patriarchy) which these boys and men have internalized, rather than deflecting immediately into an ableist discussion of their mental health. Addressing these systems of domination is an act of love and empathy for all people, them included, to create a society of love, compassion and mutual respect, where mass acts of violence like this are a thing of the past.

But, no, this is America. What do you expect?

Again my heart goes out to the victims and their families and I wish you all a speedy recovery in this difficult time. 

Also addressing a related issue that always goes unquestioned in the wake of these tragedies is why it is only these acts of violence in upper-middle class neighborhoods that are marked as tragedies, when dispossessed communities of color are visited daily by the violence of the state and a racist capitalist misogynist anti-queer society.

As my African American Studies professor noted, the media and these communities always say “Why us? This isn’t supposed to happen here”, with the obvious implication that such violence should only happen “there”.

So, how long until people start blaming mental illness and his childhood on what he did as opposed to calling him a thug like they would a Black person regardless of if they were the offender or the victim?

I was just wondering about last point and it seems it’s happened already. Things like this are always tragic and should NEVER happen period. But I’ve noticed that whenever it’s a white boy/man that does something like this they always become “a victim of their mental illness/poor childhood”. Yet whenever it’s a non-white person that almost NEVER gets thrown out there. As soon as someone with high melanin content does something like this the first questions aren’t about how he might have been abused or what’s going on in his head, but “did he have a criminal past? did he hang out with the wrong crowd? has he ever even thought about smoking weed?” and other such things.

The disproportion between treatment of different races and the instinct to pass blame off on mental illness or an abusive past rather than blaming the person is astonishing.

^^ To all of the above additional commentary. Thank you all for adding on to this discussion. This is so important and you nailed it on the head.
