The Nostalgia Critic on Hollywood’s White Washing

A couple of weeks ago when the internet exploded with outrage over Scarlet Johnason’s casting in Ghost in the Shell and about Hollywood’s alleged “white-washing” of properties.

There were plenty of people on both sides jumping into the fray on this topic and I was planning on being one of them.  However, I could not quite articulate the words I wanted to say in a manner of which I felt was good enough to be presented to you the reader.  I went through several drafts, but still wasn’t happy with what I had written so I scrapped it, and then other news items in the word of us nerds started cropping up so I never got back to it.

However, yesterday, the Nostalgia Critic on YouTube posted a video about the subject, and he pretty much said everything I was trying to say when I initially set out to write an article about it, and since he has done such a fine job in his video I felt the need to share it with you the reader.

Where are my manners, allow myself to introduce... ah... myself. I'm Josh, I'm a proud dad and I will probably write the majority of the content you see on this site (and editing 100% of it) because that's my background, writing. I'm an author of two books (Ripper, and Suburban Sky: American Tales) with books three and four on the way... eventually. I also have experience writing for various sites, including Bleacher Report, Redskins101, and more currently you can find me at where I write a weekly-ish satirical column. Here are the links to my books if you wish to check them out. Click here for Ripper: Click here for Suburban Skies: So that's me in a nutshell. I hope you enjoy the site.
