Description

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Martin Kevorkian. A professor of English at the University of Texas Austin, Dr. Kevorkian wrote Color Monitors: The Blackface of Technology in America. The book investigates White Supremacy in cinema and suggests that non-white people are often symbolically depicted as robots and other non-human entities in White films and narratives. He's visited The C.O.W.S. numerous times over the years to discuss an array of films. This time we'll briefly revisit Netflix's Black Mirror. This sci-fi anthology, which began as a British television series, has become a global critics choice. The fourth season was recently released, and the six episodes reinforce many of the Racist themes we previously discussed with Dr. Kevorkian. We'll pay acute attention to the depiction of black males throughout the series. We'll also discuss Matt Damon's two most recent projects, Downsizing and Suburbicon. The former tackles overpopulation and environmental destruction, by imagining technology that would allow humans to be shrank to mere inches. Suburbicon is a Coen brother film that's eerily similar to their 1997 smash hit Fargo. While a neighborhood of White Terrorists assaults the lone black family to "integrate" their area, Matt Damon and a cadre of gangsters, including his Damon's sister-in-law, Julianne Moore, bungle a conspiracy to kill his wife and defraud the insurance company. The racial strife helps conceal Damon's treachery. These strangely comparable films represent bedraggled White men, who are desperate, dangerous. #AntiBlackness INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#
