Khan! (Or not.)

The future is a lot whiter than Roddenberry promised. The diversity and multiculturalism that were hallmarks of the original series are  continually under threat of being eroded by its commercial appeal –which often comes with really stupid producers.

Word on the street is that white actor Benedict Cumberbatch is cast as Khan in the new JJ Abrams reboot movie, Star Trek: Into Darkness.
