George Takei doesn’t want to hear your complaints about diversity in Star Trek: Discovery. The Star Trek alum was quick to shut down the idiotic cries of a “white genocide” on MSNBC’s AM Joy.

Takei is absolutely right about these foolish trolls. First of all there’s no way they could complain with any authority because the show hasn’t aired yet. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, Star Trek has always been diverse. To claim that the show that aired the first interracial kiss shouldn’t be diverse is just foolishness.
I don’t agree with the fans claiming that Star Trek: Discovery won’t fit into the Star Trek timeline, but at least these fans have some ground to stand on. How can you claim that it’s a “white genocide” in the future when one of the show’s captains is white? It’s just complete and utter nonsense.
Perhaps if these people went back and watched a little Star Trek from the past they might learn something. They might see that what Trek is talking about is how humanity can have a bright future if they embrace science and diversity.
This isn’t the first case of Star Trek breaking barriers, it’s just the first time Trek did it with an internet to complain about it. Can you imagine the fit Twitter would have had over that first interracial kiss?
