Boycott, a Guest Series

The goddess Tanya, 4-EVER
So I was waxing depressed nostalgic on my post about Jade from Mortal Kombat, and I noticed that the commenting came out in force about the racial problems in gaming and comics (Tanya was, alas, not the 4th downloadable character.  Friggin' Freddy Krueger stole her rightful place).  I'll confess I don't game like I used to and I stopped buying comics years ago.  And I've been very stingy towards the movie theaters lately.

Soooo...I want all my nerd readers to come out in force.  Contact Moi with guest posts about something you strongly feel POC should boycott.  Keep a few things in mind:
1) This is not merely a suggestion box.  This is open season, so come with it.  Write a complete post about why you think POC should boycott something specific (game, comic, movie, book, TV show, etc.).  Stay on topic and discuss that one thing.

2) This isn't just about Black people.  POC of all shades are getting shafted, so when encouraging us to boycott, encourages us all together.

3) This isn't strictly about opinion.  Do as much research as possible.  Extra props to finding and linking interviews with creators.

4) Vent.  Don't be shy.  Don't repress.  By all means, go off.
I really hope you all participate and I can't wait to read your rants.

Your Bartender,
