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.
