‘Shark Week’ lacks diversity, overrepresents men named Mike, scientists say – The Washington Post
When you can’t quite decide if you want to complain about a lack of diversity or accuse shark experts of being racist toward sharks.
Lisa Whitenack loved sharks as a kid. She spent rainy days leafing through a guide to sharks in Reader’s Digest. Every summer, she would watch “Shark Week,” Discovery’s annual TV event that spotlights the ocean predator with seven days of dedicated programming.
But when the scientists appeared on her TV screen, she rarely saw any women she could look up to.
Whitenack led a team of researchers to examine hundreds of “Shark Week” episodes that aired between 1988 and 2020. In a study published last month by the Public Library of Science, their research claims that Discovery’s programming emphasized negative messages about sharks, lacked useful messaging about shark conservation and overwhelmingly featured white men as experts — including several with the same name.
You’ll be shocked, really shocked to learn that Lisa has contributed such gems to science as “Minorities in Shark Science: Diverse Voice in Shark Research”, “Speaking out about sexual harassment in shark science” and ” What can professional scientific societies do to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion”.
And don’t forget a $435,235 grant for “creating cultural change in the American Elasmobranch Society”.
We happen to be talking about science, but there’s a generation of these useless parasites flooding into every possible field who know one trick and one trick only.
And you’re seeing it.
In today’s miserable woke climate, it works. Odds are great that Discovery will launch some sort of equity program for Shark Week and Lisa will be brought on and charge an arm and a leg. At least until she’s accused of racism and purged. Because in a shark-eat-shark world, there’s always blood in the water.
And Lisa is just a white girl with a gimmick, unleashing “systemic change” that will turn her into chum once all the aspiring black, transgender and genderfluid professional victims get their 15 minutes to complain that Lisa is on TV and they never see anyone like themselves.
Meanwhile, the pathway is clear. Write another blog post and do interviews complaining about harassment in response to her garbage study. II’s what the bottom feeders of wokeness do.
