I had some thoughts about the new doctor and classroom implications:
White Privilege will read Roo as white in the Hunger Games, and Patriarchal Society will read Dr Who as whoever he needs the Dr to be. When his reading is challenged, White Privilege will rage online for days before he'll look back to see if Roo was really black, probably because the story he internalized is so validating that he doesn't dare look. There is little chance Patriarchal Society will reread Dr Who for signs of femininity when the Internet is right there and it is so much easier to rage against whatever machine you don't like. Who has time to read closely when the social justice warriors are trying to steal your favorite characters?
