Racebending.com’s Protests against Media Whitewashing
Robin Anne Reid, in “Bending Culture: Racebending.com’s Protests Against Media Whitewashing,” ruminates on the extent to which the gap between the categories of cultural, or fan activism, and political activism may be changing, especially with regard to younger people participating in online activist sites. Reid concentrates her inquiry on one internet community, Racebending.com, which originated in a protest against the casting of white actors in M. Night Shyamalan live-action adaptation The Last Airbender (2010). She argues that the group’s online activities since the release of the film shows the overlap between fan and political activism, thereby demonstrating connections between critical race and intersectional studies.
