One of my favorite television series in the last year is Into the Badlands. The noirish dystopian Wuxia drama is the perfect blend of action, mystery and mysticism that keeps my eyes glued to the flatscreen.
As is the case with all things PoC excellence, Into the Badlands has caught its share of hate from racist white fandom. I’m not talking about legit criticisms but nitpicking and feeble excuses that are never made for legions of lesser white shows.
Needless to say I’m not having it.
When the shade is thrown, I’m honor bound to make the haters day a “Sunny” one.
Example The First:
Racist White Fanboy: Into the Badlands is like a Martial Arts version of Game of Thrones.
Denny: Your Daddy is a Martial Arts version of Game of Thrones!!! Insult the excellence of Into the Badlands again by comparing it to Rape of Thrones and you’re going to get clipped. DON’T MAKE ME COME THROUGH THIS IPAD!!!!
Example The Second:
Another Racist White Fanboy: I don’t know if I can watch Into the Badlands. It has slavery in it.
Really White Boy? Really?
You gonna say that to me with a straight face.
But hey. Haters gonna hate. I’m not even mad. Especially with a new season coming next year. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a Christmas letter to finish up.
I know it’s not December yet but I’m writing you early so you can get a jump-start on my order.
I’ve been enjoying this awesome new show called Into the Badlands. I’m sure you and Mrs. Claus are fans too. For Christmas I want Daniel Wu’s coat, Daniel Wu’s swords, Daniel Wu’s motorcycle.
While you’re at it, just go ahead and throw in Daniel Wu as well.
Your favorite elf,
