And on the 12th Day, God Made AKMA

and I love him.

AKMA on the good cause and the white guy.

Is the White Man there because the moment really needs his visible presence, or is he the token of establishment approval, proving that White Power (to some extent) supports this movement, and back-handedly reinforcing the premise that if White Men don’t want something to happen, it won’t? The ambiguous legacy of St MacGyver involves the very good dimension of conscientized White Men putting their resources at the disposal of women and people of color — excellent! It also involves White Men’s power and privilege sapping the diluting the power that people of color and women might exercise over against White Men.

Maybe AKMA can't jump, but he can kick some ass.
