Do you think georgetakei hosting Saturday Night Live is a good prank or bad timing?

——

UPDATE: Uh oh, Uncle George got you! He is NOT scheduled to host “SNL” any time soon, though all of us at HuffPost Comedy would love it if he did. Maybe one day… until then, April Fools!

So disappointed that this was an April Fools prank!  For the record, after 39 seasons, only one Asian American has ever hosted SNL (that would be Lucy Liu, 14 years ago) so George Takei would have been the second.    As for Asian American cast members?  Zip…

I’m sorry- did you say that one Asian American has hosted SNL?!? This is appalling.

It’s not enough that Zimmerman killed Trayvon in cold blood, not enough that he walked away from it without being arrested immediately, not enough that it took thousands of people across the country marching and protesting to bring charges against him, not enough that he was acquitted and not enough that he remains free to accumulate more domestic violence charges. No, he has to also become a celebrity, built on his ‘career’ of killing black children and abusing women.

The Media does not address systems of oppression that persist in the United States and around the world.

The Media perpetuates narratives that oppress millions of poor people, people of color, and GLBTQ people

The Media is driven not by the interests of society, but by profits of their corporate owners.

Declaration of Independent Media

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Knowledge.


That to secure these rights, the Mass Media is instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the consumers, That whenever any Form of Media becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Media laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Media long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Ignorance, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Media, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Such has been the patient sufferance of the people of the world; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Media. The history of the present corporate owned Mass Media is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Ignorance over these People. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
