The following events are true. The following events are not a joke. I really wish the following events were a punchline and not a sad reflection of our culture. You’ll see what I mean.

So in honor of tonight’s season finale of the Coulson/May Power Hour (known to some of you as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), I thought I’d do a special edition Throwback Tuesday.

It was 3.5 years ago and I was watching the pilot of CMPH (AoS). Coulson and Ward had cornered Skye (aka Daisy aka Quake) and just arrested her.

Denny: DAYUM!!!!!! I MEAN THEY JUST SNATCHED THAT WHITE GIRL UP. No Miranda rights no due process. You would’ve thought Skye was a woman of color or something.

[Studies Skye suspiciously]

Denny:  ……. wait a minute……

[Googles Chloe Bennet]

Denny: OH MY GAWD SHE ACTUALLY IS A WOMAN OF COLOR!!!!!!!

Chloe Bennet (born Chloe Wang)… While pursuing an acting career in Hollywood, she changed her name to “Chloe Bennet” after having trouble booking gigs with her last name.

See what I mean?

One thought on “Art Imitating Life

  1. wait you like old white dudes? ok….. haha to each their own. dont like the character or the actor at all. suffered through for skye and may til i found out that home girl betrayed us and herself with the whole name change thing. i know she isnt the only one (mindy kaling, kal penn) but i know that’s some bs cause (idris elba, adawale akinnuoye-agbaje, oscar winner lupita nyongo, i could go on and on). know i only watch when the geekdom blows stuff out of proportion “oh the kree are on here” “oh its such an amazing episode, cant believe this happened” and i watch it with a side eye and am like? “bruh, this blows your mind” guess im not a geek and just like geek things cause i dont get it lol
