I think Jessica's more turquoise than indigo hair was a good choice and works well with her skin tone

Not everything has to be a freaking conspiracy and related to an agenda. Like Jesus.
But it's not a conspiracy? It's not like they are trying to hide it or something. They literally said that in an interview, that they want to change the norm.

As someone who has experienced something. I cringe and fear things like communism or marxism, please don't.

Yeah. Even though that communism has proven again and again and again that it is a complete failure and worse than capitalism some people for some reason still believe that communism is better.

Che managed to make Cuba a worse country with his "revolution" and Soviet Union became so bankrupt and poor that it got dissolved.

Most of these people live in countries that have nothing to do with communism, so they may have some beautiful imaginations.
But for people who live or have lived under the communist regime, the word is full of fear, despair, misery.

Communism isn't democracy as far as I can tell. I'm a fan of good old fashioned common sense British democratic socialism, that gave us the NHS. Which laiiser faire capitalism and idoological spite has now destroyed.

Where was the videogame discussion again? This is precisely what I was talking about.
thank you specially my dear pal Mani Man for proving my point.
Now now, dont be childish now...this is what you wanted to begin with.
You just didnt expect the people to Cook you quite as much.
You expected them to go After each other After you poked, didnt expect people to stay on you quite this much.

Dont be petty now.

You wouldn't have a Lara Croft to complain about if the OG TR game featured another boring white muscle dude.

All of which was completely accurate. Batista revelled in the glory and riches of power, welcoming in foreign investment to the point where the United States came to own almost all of Cuba’s mines and public utilities, as well as 40% of its super-lucrative sugar industry. Cuban workers themselves were oppressed by harsh conditions and low wages, and in the words of historian Louis Perez, ‘daily life had developed into a relentless degradation, with the complicity of political leaders and public officials who operated at the behest of American interests.’
You're right. Cuba under Batista was so much better

Cuba has the longer life expectancy for citizens (compared to many nations like USA), higher skilled doctors, cures for numerous diseases, and beat out developed nations in a lot. What keeps the Island from progressing are phony sanctions that were meant to crush the people and the government but Cuba continues to prevail.

Well there we go.

None of the LotR characters were boring. Galadriel was good the way she was. Not this angsty teen character that's thousands of years old.

I guess if you're saying that you agree with them though. Shame your only excuse is "white". As if it's an insult or something. As if a character of any other race can't be boring.

Why didn't you just say that from the start instead of trying to make it seem like that ain't your real issue?
