Re: The racist legacy of Star Trek

Trek is less a vision of the future and more a vision of how White America perceives the world (via the alien races encountered by the Enterprise) and the racial dynamics of America (by the racial composition of the crew). It's not surprising why there is no serious African American character in there until DS9, which came out in the 90s.
