wrt that Star Trek theme, my little boy and I were watching children of the corn (the updated version) and he asked me "when is the sister gonna get killed" - of course he knows that trope and has no expectations of seeing certain folk make it from one end of a sci-fi/horror/action movie to another - but he shocked and tickled me when he then went on to propound that "black folks got no more chance of making it to the end than one of the dudes in a red shirt in star trek" - I was rolling cause I had no idea that a.) he'd even peeped that many episodes of the original star trek, and b.) that he'd notice that the red-shirted non-recurring security personnel seemed to have a particularly high level of episodic mortality.

Speak for yourself, many conscious folks must remain silent and work, with a heavy heart -for many has been alone for a long time. For our burden has been the ability to see. To see what a concept not understood, and now the robot knows some of our nature. Being someone who knows and understands prisons in America, it is the core measurement of a civilized societies, we have failed long time ago, and use all rational for its present existence, where part of its development in the late 1970's, was pure economicism - giving men and women work, where industry had begun outsourcing. Do you know how many mentally ill persons are in our jails? That is a story in itself. We went from how justice and fairness can be meted out to a maximum, to how happy am I, which includes not thinking about those in our prisons/wars/or even our next door neighbor. What keeps me going is this brilliant epigram by a great soul.
Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old
Franz Kafka

and children do that for me
