This had me laughing so hard. Not sure if Jeff gets the reference but for anyone else.
“Hush said that when I saw your heart die, part of mine would die, too. He was right in a way. There has been only one woman who has really held my heart. I locked that part of myself away after my parents died. It was too hurt to risk exposing again. And yet, despite my best efforts, you broke in. You were the first to touch my heart and remind me I still had one. I don’t know if we could ever have more than we’ve already had. I don’t know, especially after this, if you’d want any more from me. Tonight I’m only sure of one thing. Whatever the future holds, wherever life takes me…”—Bruce Wayne, “Heart of Hush”
“Because I wanted to hurt you in the worst way I could. I know what that gutter slut means to you, even if you deny it to yourself.”—Hush, “Heart of Hush”

Oh my God, I love this Catwoman!!!
And that’s why the role has been taken away from actors of colour and given to a white man. Racebending.com has always pointed out that villains are generally played by people with darker skin, and that’s true … unless the villain is one with intelligence, depth, complexity. One who garners sympathy from the audience, or if not sympathy, then — as from Kirk — grudging admiration. What this new Trek movie tells us, what JJ Abrams is telling us, is that no brown-skinned man can accomplish all that. That only by having Khan played by a white actor can the audience engage with and feel for him, believe that he’s smart and capable and a match for our Enterprise crew.

perfect commentary which parallels what Rawles was saying earlier about the possibility of Moriarty being a person of color:
You see? It’s more complicated than “people of color get typecast as villains.”
Black people get typecast as an extremely specific type of villain - they’re thugs, brutish and animalistic. South Asian actors are similarly typecast as scary oppressive (usually coded Muslim) terrorists.
But when your villain is of the superhuman archetype? When they’re brooding antiheroes, when they’re nuanced, when they’re multi-faceted?
(And check out this post on the glorification of white criminality in shows like Dexter, Breaking Bad, Weeds, Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, etc.)
Yes, they’re white…and British. Not the point of the argument but I had to throw it in there.

I like this for the Catwoman but I imagine my wife and her feed probably appreciate it for different reasons.
