"It's me and Steve!"
Talk about killing nostalgia, we look back on a movie we all were fond of (except understandably Jamie) and realize it's one of the most racist blockbusters ever made. 1984's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is just a wild ride of racism and misogyny from start to finish.
We discuss the infamous dinner scene, how bad breakups fueled the dark tone of the movie, and what the hell is going with Short Round. Plus, we reimagine what a movie starring Short Round would be like (and if he had a real name) and also add a new level to our caucacity meter!
If you're not already familiar you absolutely need to check out Marcus and Jamie's work. Both are fantastic creators and are doing some stand out work.
Find Marcus at @marcuskwame on Twitter and @Marcus_kwame on IG. His book with David F. Walker, The Black Panther Party, a Graphic Novel History is a must have. He is also one of the hosts of the Black Comics Chat podcast.
Jamie Noguchi can be found at @angryzenmaster and has plenty of great work out on Thenib.com and is co-creator of The School for Extraterrestrial Girls series.
As always, you can keep up with us at @white_pod and reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to suggest movies for us to watch or give us your own reimagining's of these movies.
Love y'all, till next week!
