Starting this fall, TV will look more like life — with more actors of color leading casts than ever before.
In a rare departure from cat pictures and “Which Channing Tatum Is Right For You” quizzes, Buzzfeed has posted a fairly comprehensive rundown of diversity in the coming 2014-2015 network television season. Many have already pointed out good places to be wary: like Fresh Of The Boat's use of an almost exclusively Korean American cast to tell a story based on the memoir of a Taiwanese American individual…or, all of Selfie (its only redeeming factor at the moment is John Cho in general and…John Cho in a suit). But, overall it would seem that the major networks are beginning to realize that demographics a) have never been as White as they suspected and b) are even less so now. Which is hopefully a good thing. Oddly enough, Buzzfeed failed to mention ABC’s upcoming comedy-musical series Galavant and its Indian Canadian female lead, or CW’s new series The Flash, which features a Black female lead and the blessing of Jesse L. Martin playing a cop again. At the very least let’s all shout hosanna for the fact that there is now a 3hr block of primetime television on ABC that is run exclusively by a Black woman at its head.
The world needs a well funded, high profile, international competitive robotics event. Can Japan make it happen in 2020?

you can see where the madness started.
I generally consider dude and bro/bruh to be gender neutral and it honestly drives me crazy when people are like “I’m not a dude” but at the same time if calling you dude or bruh actually does bother you just let me know and I’ll find something else like “fellow traveler” .
