It is official. I am done with the new Star Trek. DONE. I love Benedict Cumberbatch, but casting him as Khan? No. Just no. Let’s just completely erase that Khan was Sikh and make him a white dude. Ugh. There are no words. That’s not true, there are words. Just not from me. Marissa Sammy at Racebending.com says it all. Melissa McEwan at Shakesville brings up some other problems as well.
I’ve talked about my issues with this Star Trek reboot before, but this really takes the cake. It may seem ridiculous to some, but it does make me angry. There is so much to love about Star Trek but JJ Abrams has erased it all.
