    Fox’s The Simpsons has found a black actor to replace Harry Shearer as the voice of Dr. Julius Hibbert. Actor Kevin Michael Richardson will now voice the role of Dr. Hibbert following Shearer’s final performance as the Simpson’s family physician on Sunday night’s episode, according to multiple reports. The re-casting comes after Fox said last year that it would no longer allow white actors to voice non-white characters on the long-running primetime animated show. The decision was part of Hollywood’s larger effort to crack down on content that might be deemed offensive or racist in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests and riots that were taking place in cities across the country. Kevin Michael Richardson has numerous voice acting credits, including roles on Fox’s The Family Guy and Netflix’s F is for Family. Shearer is expected to continue voicing white characters on The Simpsons, including Montgomery Burns and Ned Flanders....
    Another white “Simpsons” voice actor has stepped down from lending his pipes to a character of color.  According to The Wrap, Harry Shearer, who is white, will no longer voice the African-American character Dr. Hibbert.

    [Ed. note: This essay contains significant spoilers for Soul, including the ending.] Soul is Pixar’s first film with a Black protagonist, but the story never accepts the narrative complexities of Blackness. It’s a film where the Black character is either a blue blob or a cat for much of the action, but is rarely in his own Black body. It’s a film where a supposedly raceless character takes over a Black body, causing the Black character to minimize his own dreams for a symbiotic good. Soul opens as a story about finding individual purpose in life. But when the nebulous character 22 enters the fray, the animated jazz odyssey becomes a wholly different tale. In grafting a Black lead character onto an initially non-Black story, directors Pete Docter and Kemp Powers and their co-writer Mike Jones portray the comforts of Black life, yet miss its intricacies. They’ve unwittingly crafted what’s...
    Famed Disney-owned animation studio Pixar is taking heat in Europe for using a white cast to dub the voices of its black characters in its new black culture focused movie, Soul. When it was initially released in Denmark, Soul was celebrated for its depiction of a black jazz musician who goes on a joyful life journey — voiced by Jamie Foxx in the American release. But it wasn’t long before the same media that praised the film began hammering it because the cast hired to translate the American film into Danish lacked black actors, the blog Film reported. Nikolaj Lie Kaas, the white actor who was hired for Soul’s Danish release, felt enough pressure to jump to his Facebook account to put out a statement saying that he thinks that the actor “who can perform the work in the best possible way [should] get the job.” Watch below:  Denmark...
    Joshua Blanchard/Getty Images A Washington Post editor took aim at the media on Wednesday for giving a platform to too many white people — especially those who support former President Donald Trump. “The national nightmare of Donald Trump’s presidency is over,” Global Opinions Editor Karen Attiah wrote in an op-ed for the paper. “Or so we think.” “Since the Capitol siege of Jan. 6, federal and local officials have been scrambling to fortify Washington and its institutions against the threat of white supremacy and violence, but one national institution remains painfully vulnerable: the mainstream media,” she wrote, arguing that allowing Trump supporters to appear in the media constituted “breaches to our Fourth Estate.” “From the moment Trump entered the 2016 race, endless oxygen was given to his racism and lies,” Attiah added. “White supremacists were deemed worthy of profiles noting their haircuts and wardrobes or allowed NPR airtime to rank...
    The new Disney Pixar film boasts countless qualities for which it has earned the hearts of the public, for example, the moving message of its story or the masterful detail in the animation. It also boasts of being the first collaborative feature film by those great companies to have a African American protagonist; a very pertinent decision in these times when seeking greater representation of previously ignored communities. That said, it will come as no surprise that controversy has emerged due to the dubbing of Soul, in certain regions of the world, used white actors to give voice to the musician Joe gardner. According to a recent article in The New York Times, the dubbing of Soul in several European countries has allowed white actors to give voice not only to the protagonist but also to other African-American characters featured in the film. The above situation, according to reports,...

    Loading the player... Danish film critics initially greeted Soul, Pixar’s first animated feature to focus on Black characters and African-American culture, with delight, applauding its sensitive yet joyful portrayal of a jazz musician on a quest to live a meaningful life.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — People living in a western Minnesota town say they’re concerned about a group with white supremacist beliefs, moving to their city. Earlier this year, Asatru Folk Assembly bought a vacant Lutheran Church in Murdock. Last night the city council voted to allow them to use the church to practice their beliefs. Some religious scholars have referred to Asatru Folk Assembly, as a racist fringe group with white supremacist beliefs. An attorney for the group says they are a Northern European religion and that’s it. But Victoria Guillemard isn’t buying it. “This is not politics, this is not religion. This is looking at your neighbor and believing they are not equal to you because of the color of their skin,” said Guillemard. AFA, as the group is often referred to, is headquartered in California and practices a pre-Christian religion. But unlike other Asatru organizations, their Statement of Ethics...

    (CNN)As President Donald Trump began a packed day of events Friday, he delivered an unusually somber message to seniors -- a group he won in 2016 and desperately needs to win back -- speaking of the pain and grief inflicted by the coronavirus pandemic. "My heart breaks for every grieving family that has lost a precious loved one," Trump said in Fort Myers, Florida, where he also promised the crowd that he would dedicate his life to seniors. "I feel their anguish and I mourn their loss. I feel their pain. I know that the terrible pain that they have gone through, and you lose someone, and it's nothing to describe what you have to bear. There's nothing to describe it." But it wasn't long before the President's surprising shift in tone -- one that might have actually helped him win back the many voters he has alienated -- was...

    Narrowing down that language before the 20th is crucial, as it could limit the potential blow US companies may take if cut off from Tencent’s non-American users. In the United States, WeChat isn’t much more than a messaging service, one primarily used by people with professional ties to China and members of the Chinese diaspora. But in its native country, WeChat has quickly become a sort of platform-agnostic operating system — in addition to acting as a social network, WeChat has grown into a payment platform, a marketing tool, a destination for games, a financial lender and a self-contained app ecosystem. In other words, losing access to the platform’s hundreds of millions of loyal users in China could put a serious dent in a company’s balance sheet. Ironically, the many American companies that rely on WeChat on some level stand to suffer far more than WeChat’s own parent company....

    Over the past week or so, there’s been a major attempt by the Trump administration to demean the reputation of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, with anonymous “oppo-research” and open insults from Peter Navarro, a trade adviser close to President Trump. Fauci is widely acknowledged to be one of the world’s foremost experts on pandemics so there was a furious pushback to this crude character assassination. Despite the fact that Trump had made similar remarks about Fauci being “wrong” about the coronavirus, the president was forced to throw Navarro under the bus despite the fact that it’s obvious they’ve been on the same page. Trump is obviously jealous of the public’s trust in Fauci, compared to the increasing public skepticism of anything he personally says about the crisis. But this attack on Fauci is really just a symbol of the administration’s rejection of the reality we can see with our own eyes: a...

    Yesterday, actress Jenny Slate took one for the team (and by that I mean #TeamWokeWhitePeople) by stepping down from her role as Missy, a bi-racial Black girl on the popular Netflix cartoon Big Mouth. She was quickly followed by Kirsten Bell, who stepped down from her role as *surprise* another bi-racial Black girl on Apple TV’s animated series Central Park. Both of these white actresses have displayed a special kind of allyship that shouldn’t be discounted, but the argument from Slate that “Black characters on animated shows should be played by Black people” is the kind of short sighted, emotionally driven response that’s allowed animation, and specifically voice work, to remain one of the most racially segregated genres in Hollywood. The solution isn’t just that Black voice actors should be guaranteed Black animated roles. The real problem is that white voices are considered UNIVERSAL and are cast as everything, from...
    Jenny Slate and Kristen Bell have both stepped down from voice-acting roles playing Black biracial cartoon characters, saying these roles should go to Black actors instead. This kind of casting choice is an ongoing issue in the animation world, where performers (especially professional voice-actors rather than celebrity stars) are less visible than in live-action media. It’s still fairly commonplace for actors to voice characters of different races, particularly white actors voicing non-white characters. Jenny Slate has played Missy for three seasons of Netflix‘s Big Mouth; a biracial Black and Jewish girl who appears in the main cast. Slate wrote in an Instagram post that she initially reasoned that “it was permissible for me to play Missy because her mom is Jewish and White—as am I. But Missy is also Black, and Black characters on an animated show should be played by Black people.” View this post on Instagram A post...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Actresses Kristen Bell and Jenny Slate announced Wednesday that they would no longer play the roles of biracial characters in the animated series “Central Park” and “Big Mouth.” Slate announced her decision on Instagram saying, “I have come to the decision today that I can no longer play the character of “Missy” on  the animated TV show “Big Mouth.” At the start of the show, I reasoned with myself that it was permissible for me to play “Missy” because her mom is Jewish and White — As am I. But “Missy” is also Black and Black characters on an animated show should be played by Black people.” View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jenny Slate (@jennyslate) on Jun 24, 2020 at 1:00pm PDT She went on to say, “I acknowledge how my original reasoning was flawed, that it existed as an example...
    Actress Kristen Bell announced that she would be stepping down from a voice role of a mixed race character because she feels it was wrong for her, as a white woman, to take the role. "This is a time to acknowledge our acts of complicity. Here is one of mine," said Bell on Instagram. "Playing the character of Molly on Central Park shows a lack of awareness of my pervasive privilege. Casting a mixed race character with a white actress undermines the specificity of the mixed race and Black American experience. It was wrong and we, on the Central Park team, are pledging to make it right," she continued. "I am happy to relinquish this role to someone who can give a much more accurate portrayal and I will commit to learning," Bell concluded, "growing and doing my part for equality and...

    CINCINNATI, OHIO - Bob Moses says America is at "a lurching moment" for racial change, potentially as transforming as the Civil War era and as the 1960s civil rights movement that he helped lead. "What we are experiencing now as a nation has only happened a couple times in our history," said Moses, a main organizer of the 1964 "Freedom Summer" project in Mississippi. "These are moments when the whole nation is lurching, and it's not quite sure which way it's going to lurch." Moses, now 85 and still active with The Algebra Project he founded, was among the many people, Black and white, who risked jail time, assaults and even assassination in the battles against racial segregation and for voting rights in the South. Associated Press reporters asked some of the leaders their thoughts on the current protests across the country sparked by police slayings of Black men...
