If you came to this site hoping for an intellectual discussion of color-blind paradigms in the United States, and the semiotics of such on popular television events – I’m sorry. For the most part, this isn’t really that kind of site.
If you came to see a funny video about how The Walking Dead kinda treats its black characters like crap, well, you’re in the right place. It may not be as simple as always letting the black dude die to save the hero, like it used to be – but there’s still something not-quite-right here.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
