Love For Leslie J

I’ll say this much for the new Ghostbusters film, it’s staying true to the spirit of the franchise. Apparently.

Just as Ernie Hudson got thrown under the bus and treated like garbage during the release of the original Ghostbusters film, Leslie Jones is enduring the same crap in wake of the reboot.

While the other actresses in Ghostbusters are celebrating the release of their film, Leslie Jones endures being snubbed by racist designers and being harassed nonstop on social media.

Funny how that sisterhood and solidarity is now nowhere to be found.

And that is white feminism in a nutshell.

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. 

And that’s also why I’ll be skipping the new Ghostbusters.

Ms. Jones deserves better. So does Mr. Hudson. And so do nerds of color.
