The problematic optics of CW’s Walker: part four.

This problematic optic may not be as widely known by those who… don’t live in Texas, haven’t lived in Texas for awhile, or don’t know Texan history, but the Texas Rangers were widely held to be racist during their original tenure. So it blows my mind that a producing company would want to remake a show whose occupation was deeply core to the show itself when this information isn’t difficult to find at all. To be honest, this seems like another attempt to rewrite Walker himself and the Texas Rangers… oh, look, they’re not racist any more, they “reformed”, or however people say it to themselves to help themselves sleep well each night.

Congratulations, though, seriously, on rebooting an old show whose occupational histories are literally racist.
