Venture capitalists and executive producers like to give money to terrible white dudes?
@phyrry I mean yes, undoubtedly, but I think in this *specific* instance the lament is more about how the supposed "non-politics" of Gen X was co-opted by ultra-right shills and apathy festered into destructive nihilism.
Fair! 'Non-political' generally codes into 'I'm fine with whatever the status quo is, even when it's terrible' for me.
@phyrry P much, yeah. :\
