Why Do All The Girls Who Save The Day Only Look A Certain Way?

"While I’m loving the uptick in ass-kicking of the female variety, it makes me wonder where the variety is — for instance, why does a dystopian future only involve two to three black people? Was there some worldwide racist disease? If there was, it must have been called the Hollywood Producer virus…" Joseph Lamour (Upworthy)

Don’t you think it’s time we had more diversity in Hollywood?

Our first field trip for Breakthrough! This morning, Ishita spoke to a group of high school students about immigrant rights and racial justice at the Church Center of the United Nations. A great discussion followed her presentation of Breakthrough’s documentary “Face the Truth: Racial Profiling Across America”. Even greater excitement followed her show & tell of Breakthrough’s video games, ICED and America 2049. Meeting youth with passion and purpose is a great way to start any day!

- Hannah and A.J., Breakthrough interns for the summer (you’ll meet them soon!)
