The C.O.W.S. Dr. Martin Kevorkian: Movies of ‘the Moment’

Monday, June 22nd 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Martin Kevorkian. A University of Texas Austin professor of English, Dr. Kevorkian authored the 2009 text, Color Monitors: The Blackface of Technology in America. The main theme of the text is that films and narratives like The Matrix and The Terminator franchises are metaphors for White anxiety about a loss of power to non-white people. Dr. Kevorkian has visited The C.O.W.S. many times over the years to dissect White Supremacist components to many films. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, many folks around the world have had more time to binge watch content. we selected a fresh batch of offerings. The recent protests against Racism and police killings of black people lifted The Hate U Give (book and film) back to relevance. It’s daily cited as a work to help parents explain the current racial crisis to children. Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984) is also referenced daily, although not as a tool to explain racial oppression. This 80’s rap musical is cited constantly to help explain the “boogaloo” – a term used by a segment of White Supremacists to describe civil unrest and a failure of police and government systems. A number of Race Soldiers use the threat of an apocalyptic boogaloo to motivate gun and weapon stockpiling as well as combat training. Color Monitors spends a significant amount of time on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator, so we’ll see if last year’s release, Terminator: Dark Fate, fits his analysis for the previous films in the series. The latest installment is set in Mexico, and features machines and White people risking their existence to save a Mexican female. Finally, we’ll revisit the Netflix Black Mirror series. Gus could barely stomach one episode from the fifth season, so we’ll focus on “Striking Vipers” and the continual theme of castrated black males.
