Let's kill some minorities, even though it makes no economic sense!

Four Color Media Monitor reports on the dreadful remake of Wonder Woman supposedly in the works. In it is this pathetic piece of plot:

The pilot episode, which Kelley notes is designed to run “without commercial interruption,” revolves around Los Angeles-based mega-billionaire Diana—who collects planes and a multitude of transforming aircraft called “Ultimates” (no invisible plane in sight here)—as she attempts to take down an evil pharmaceutical company run by morally corrupt scientist Veronica Cale, who is mass-producing a human-growth hormone that is causing its users, mostly black inner city youth, to die. Along the way, she tackles criminals, a Senate subcommittee, and a broken heart, the latter courtesy of lost love Steve Trevor.

Indeed! That's a great way to make some cash for your "evil" company -- sell your product to "mostly black inner city youth" because, after all, we all know how affluent that segment of the population is. Somehow, purchasing human-growth hormone would be of no interest to upper-class suburbanite white kids who play football, soccer, baseball and the like -- and who statistically have a lot more cash on hand to buy it. But adding this to the plot would negate a "progressive" conviction -- that America is incorrigibly oppressive and racist. And yes, even though another such "progressive" conviction is that capitalism is evil, it is more to intertwine it with racism -- even though it makes zippo sense.

Which sort of makes a bit of sense when you think about it -- because "progressivism" itself makes zippo sense.

Yep, not only is that a turdwagon of a plot, it looks more like something that would be made in the eighties or nineties instead of today.

Who made Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan screenwriters?

Lynda spends most of her time in Delaware. Bethany. Beach to be exact. She is married to a big time Democrat Lobbyist

If Wonder Woman lifts her arms any higher, she's going to have a costume malfunction. :)
