Selected episodes from the Canadian Broadcasting Company’s sci-fi anthology series 21 Black Futures: What Is the Future of Blackness? are now streaming on CBC Gem. For example, there is “The Prescription,” which is about a miraculous future in which a Gorilla Glue-like product dismantles systemic racism:

The Prescription

Open Your Big Black Mouth, a brand-new treatment designed to help Black women affected by racism, bigotry, microaggressions, white supremacy, exotification or unwanted hair touching, has just been rolled out. Acute or severe, this specially formulated treatment of endless doses of time and space allows Black women to speak their mind and be heard. The first recipient of this revolutionary treatment has just been given her prescription… and she’s skeptical, to say the least.

PLAYWRIGHT: LISA CODRINGTON, DIRECTOR ALISON DUKE

DIRECTOR’S NOTE:
The year is 2042. There have been technological advances in the field of medicine, especially in the area of mental health and wellness. Chantal Thompson, 30, also known as Recipient 1, is the first to be administered an innovative treatment called Open Your Big Black Mouth. The technology is marketed as the cure for chronic depression and anxiety in Black people overwhelmed by everyday microaggressions, oppression and anti-Black racism. Never before has a Black woman been given the space to say what’s on her mind and not have to deal with white fragility. The monologue follows a skeptical Chantal coming to terms with what this new treatment means for her life. Will it work? What are the side-effects? And is she willing to take the risk and accept the consequences?

Directing Lisa Codrington’s monologue is a creative highlight for me because it conjures so many emotions that Black women feel today. This is the first time I have worked with text that unapologetically propels an unfettered internal conversation from a Black Canadian woman. It’s a tour de force about language that plays with how we receive Black women’s stories. What we hear, between what is said and what is not said, is raw and familiar. And I equally enjoyed the process of discovering how deeply we could explore the feelings with actress Akosua Amo-Adem, who is just magical with her delivery. I marvel at how she can bring emotions to life while staying true to Lisa’s prose, layered as it is with intricate poetic formations. I have often reflected on what life would be like if I, like Chantal, could say what’s on my mind about racism, oppression and sexism, without having to reflect on the consequences. I am drawn to this idea, which is both raw and new.

— ALISON DUKE

Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last to speak truth to power to Becky and Karen for touching our hair!

Other episodes include:

The Sender

Cil Brown loves her work. Her job as a Sender on a global racism-elimination project has resulted in a peaceful, logical and sustainable world. However, she encounters technical difficulties when a Sendee objects to restrictions on the lives of residents of White Supremacist Island.

Umoja Corp.

Facing the justice system alone, Adrian’s future is in jeopardy. But what if there were a corporation that set out to amass Black wealth, knowledge, strength and hard work for the betterment of Black society? A corporation that exploited capitalist systems, normally used as tools of suppression, to uplift and care for Black causes and Black people? What if that group stepped in to ensure Adrian’s talents wouldn’t be wasted in prison? This is the collective. This is Umoja Corp. …

“We were conquerors when in concordance. We bathed in Gold and birthed the boldest battalions. Wakanda is not a wish. Pharaohs are not fictitious. Our empire is not erased. Black is King. Black has been King. Black will be King, but only if Black joins Queen.”

And then’s there’s the post-apocalyptic Emmett, in which Medgar Evers and Emmett Till are proud black gay lovers:

Emmett

Seven years after the Fall, Medgar makes his way along the shores of the Great Ontario Sea and remembers his lost love Emmett. Every day is very much the same on an Earth still plagued by viruses. But on this day, everything is about to change.

How fascinating it is for Obsidian to consider the future of Blackness through so many pairs of our own eyes. It has been such a truly beautiful experience collaborating with Syrus Marcus Ware and Prince Amponsah on Emmett. From the first time I read the piece, I was struck by its beautiful and stark imagery. What is Blackness when humanity is all but a memory? What energy does Black love, and Black love lost, leave behind? In Emmett, a Black man who should be dead is somehow still alive. That simple statement is the story of the Black spirit itself: it — we — are not gone. In the face of all that would seek to erase it — and the bodies inhabited by it — it remains unbreakable, indomitable, wounded but glorious, and defiantly Black.

Georgeena

A bride motors down a highway in her wedding dress, struggling to make sense of what led her to this moment. Her veil lies crumpled on the back seat. Her cellphone keeps ringing, and the car in her rear view appears to be following her. Could it be Mathiew, her groom?

WRITER’S NOTE:
In the wake of the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, when race-based incidents are investigated in the media, it is common practice for journalists to examine the motivations of the perpetrators. We see it happening in the news today in reports about the Capitol insurrection. We saw it when a Canadian “Karen,” Amy Cooper, called the police on the birdwatcher in Central Park. “Why did (insert name of a Karen here) feel forced to attack (a description of a person of colour here)?” But do we know the name of the man she victimized? His last name was Cooper too — Christian Cooper. Another frequently asked question is “What is behind the rise in race-based attacks on people of colour?” Or “what drove (insert the name of a “Kevin” — a wannabe fascist — here) to want to be a Proud Boy?” If the injured party is Black, the news story will typically focus on the white attacker.

This short play was inspired by real events. It was also prompted by a two-decade-old study by clinical psychologist Maya McNeilly out of Duke University Medical Center which suggested that “racist provocation” could lead to damaging physical and emotional symptoms. As McNeilly put it, “It is well-documented that racism has negative social, economic and political consequences on African Americans, but the direct effects of racism on physical and emotional health have only begun to be explored.”

This story continues that exploration and contemplates the effects of the terrorism of overt and implicit white supremacy on the physical and emotional life of one particular Black woman: Georgeena.

In summary, in the future, there will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a vision of the future, imagine a megaphone shouting critical race theory at a white servitor’s face – forever.

  1. And then’s there’s the post-apocalyptic Emmett, in which Medgar Evers and Emmett Till are strong black gay lovers:

    Evers (and Hosea Williams) were (AFAIK) the only notables from that set who’d had agreeable careers which they laid aside in order to engage in political agitation; they were doing what they were doing at some cost to themselves, and Evers was eventually shot dead for his trouble. His three children had to watch him bleed out. This is an obscene act of piracy.

    Well now this is progress. Back in the old days she’d have been forced to use a car.

    My ding-dong liberal parents watch at least 2 news stories every day--sometimes more-- about some black or woman overcoming oppression and being uplifted. They've been watching and listening to these stories for many years now. For the last 4 years, the news has consisted of nothing but sermonizing Hate Trump propaganda intermingled with minority overcoming obstacles stories. The news is almost nothing else.

    I'm amazed the boredom factor never kicks in. They never get sick of hearing the same old tale with slight variations over and over again. I guess the same mentality makes people go to church and listen to boring sermons because they think it'll do them good. You can understand how the Puritans stuck to their boring church-going so long.

    Insanity is doing to the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If you're the same person after listening to a cluster of these stupid stories, listening to more of them won't change your personality.

    If you watch TV news today, you're pretty pathetic, a classic inadequate personality who lives a colorless and boring life.

    First comment after yet another CBC black history month article:

    "Is it March yet?"

  4. “What Is the Future of Blackness? ”

    The Future of blackness will resemble the Past of blackness prior to European influence, only then, it will be much worse.

  5. Sadly, the average Canadian has zero idea his tax dollars (I say his because as a whole women do not add any revenue to the government) is funding this Value Village Black Mirror rip off Afro futurism nonsense.

  6. At no point in its moons-of-Jupiter-denying worst did the church get this bad.

    • Agree: El Dato
  7. Sounds like satire: N’akeesha is not getting enough attention. She gets off the couch and up in people’s faces. Much better.The homeboys quit balling for a few hours, conquer the world in the name of Blackness, solve all problems, go back to chillin’.

    Actual example: Rebirth of the Afronauts: A Black Space Odyssey incorporates themes that are rarely explored in mainstream media: Afrofuturism, Afrofuturist music, reparations, space travel, destiny, language and technology in the future, identity and the African diaspora in North America. These themes and the storylines in the film are essential; they are rooted in history, while amplifying the voice of the next generation.

    Yes, these themes are essential, and black themes are rarely, rarely! I tell ya, explored today.

  8. Despite a few token StarFleet employees sci-fi is generally as white (and increasingly Asian) as any cultural genre I can think of — why imagine some dystopian future for blacks when they’re already such a hot mess right now?

    Search black sci-fi writers and even google can’t scare up much. Gil Scott Heron’s 1980 is about the only piece of perceptive black sci-fi that comes to mind.

    It’s my impression that Canadian producers jumped on the diversity bandwagon even before Americans did.

    Sometimes I like to watch old videos on the Retsuprae YouTube channel. The idea is that two or three guys add silly commentary to footage of crappy video games.

    One of the channel’s targets is the Canadian Ambition, a laughingly-inept but strangely-endearing Flash title from the early 2000s. The game is supposed to teach “negotiation techniques” but is so incompetently made that it becomes a kind of goofy comedy.

    After many twists, turns, and non-sequiturs, the convoluted plot eventually boils down to this: a psychologist (Angie) is murdered by a corrupt policeman working for an evil business tycoon (Rolf) after she threatens to expose problems with an experimental psychotropic drug in which Rolf has a strong financial interest.

    In some segments, the player takes on the role of an invisible advisor offering counsel to the characters. In others, the player becomes a character in his own right.

    There are numerous side plots branching off from the main narrative. For example, at one point, Rolf’s girlfriend Bridget tries to gaslight her ex-husband Ted by injecting him with the drug, splattering fake blood all over his apartment (deluding him into believing that he has murdered their two children), and strapping a bomb to his body. When Ted (wearing the bomb) arrives at Rolf’s office and demands to see Bridget, the secretary calls the police. (The player must advise the cop as to how to proceed. Bad advice leads to an explosion.) Ted escapes arrest by jumping out the window and landing in the bed of a mattress truck (!). Angie is killed while Ted is still on the lam. Bridget then tries to frame Ted for Angie’s murder, but ends up incriminating herself and going on trial. (In the final segment, the player acts as her defense attorney.)

    Ted’s lawyer is Yale, a black Mary Sue who is constantly described as brilliant and handsome. (He gives off a vague Obama-Oreo vibe.) Yale not only works for Rolf but is unhappily married to Rolf’s ball-busting daughter Helen. He’s desperate for a divorce but is loathe to alienate the old man.

    Rolf is depicted as a literal fascist - at the time of Angie’s murder, he is giving an address at a “Fascist Party” fundraiser - but he has no problem with his daughter’s being married to a black man. So at least he’s not a Nazi.

    Naturally, Yale is having an affair ... with Angie.

    Yale’s problems are magnified when Helen finds out about his liaison with Angie. When he tries to break off the illicit relationship, Angie drops the bombshell that she’s pregnant. Then, less than an hour later, she is murdered.

    Yale and Helen are such a dysfunctional couple that one wonders whether the creator of the game disapproves of interracial marriage. Even Angie is implied as having a few screws loose. In fact, just about every female character is depicted as a crazy harpy. Ambition is mildly pro-black-man but resolutely anti-white-woman.

    Here’s a segment in which the player controls a policeman posing as a marriage counselor trying to trace Yale’s movements on the night of the murder. You can see that the game reeks of that peculiarly Canadian brand of lameness (seen in crappy syndicated TV shows such as Mutant X). The interracial aspect just adds another layer of cringe:

    What’s left to improve?

We saw it when a Canadian “Karen,” Amy Cooper, called the police on the birdwatcher in Central Park. “Why did (insert name of a Karen here) feel forced to attack (a description of a person of colour here)?” But do we know the name of the man she victimized? His last name was Cooper too — Christian Cooper.

    Gee, didn’t Christian Cooper intentionally bring some candy to lure that poor Amy Cooper dog away from her?

    Christian was the PERP, not the VICTIM.

How could that go wrong? Especially since Emmitt is underage and it’s therefore also a gay pedophilia, time-travel, lynch victim, love story.

    But I can’t believe Steve left out Rebirth of the Afronauts: A Black Space Odyssey. This is apparently Kubrick’s 2001 meets Chappelle’s Show 2002 Reparation Skit.

    Lefties feel like the way to help blacks is to boost up any meager accomplishment, never criticize it as stupid or unworthy, and act amazed by it, celebrate it, fete it, and give it prizes. They think this will make blacks happy and satiate them. But instead it feeds blacks delusional egos into thinking they really are untouchable geniuses and the Only Reason They Are Held Back is Racism. Causes a lot more resentment and hate than if lefties merely demanded blacks meet the same standards and receive the same praise (and no more) than everyone else.

The closest we came to getting it right may have lasted from about 1945 to about 1963 in the northern United States generally, perhaps for a time earlier in loci like New England. (People in their mundane lives do a passable job; the problems arise when school administrators and lawyers begin harassing normal people).

    Replies: @Stan Adams

    It’s my impression that Canadian producers jumped on the diversity bandwagon even before Americans did.

    Sometimes I like to watch old videos on the Retsuprae YouTube channel. The idea is that two or three guys add silly commentary to footage of crappy video games.

    One of the channel’s targets is the Canadian Ambition, a laughingly-inept but strangely-endearing Flash title from the early 2000s. The game is supposed to teach “negotiation techniques” but is so incompetently made that it becomes a kind of goofy comedy.

    After many twists, turns, and non-sequiturs, the convoluted plot eventually boils down to this: a psychologist (Angie) is murdered by a corrupt policeman working for an evil business tycoon (Rolf) after she threatens to expose problems with an experimental psychotropic drug in which Rolf has a strong financial interest.

    In some segments, the player takes on the role of an invisible advisor offering counsel to the characters. In others, the player becomes a character in his own right.

    There are numerous side plots branching off from the main narrative. For example, at one point, Rolf’s girlfriend Bridget tries to gaslight her ex-husband Ted by injecting him with the drug, splattering fake blood all over his apartment (deluding him into believing that he has murdered their two children), and strapping a bomb to his body. When Ted (wearing the bomb) arrives at Rolf’s office and demands to see Bridget, the secretary calls the police. (The player must advise the cop as to how to proceed. Bad advice leads to an explosion.) Ted escapes arrest by jumping out the window and landing in the bed of a mattress truck (!). Angie is killed while Ted is still on the lam. Bridget then tries to frame Ted for Angie’s murder, but ends up incriminating herself and going on trial. (In the final segment, the player acts as her defense attorney.)

    Ted’s lawyer is Yale, a black Mary Sue who is constantly described as brilliant and handsome. (He gives off a vague Obama-Oreo vibe.) Yale not only works for Rolf but is unhappily married to Rolf’s ball-busting daughter Helen. He’s desperate for a divorce but is loathe to alienate the old man.

    Rolf is depicted as a literal fascist – at the time of Angie’s murder, he is giving an address at a “Fascist Party” fundraiser – but he has no problem with his daughter’s being married to a black man. So at least he’s not a Nazi.

    Naturally, Yale is having an affair … with Angie.

    Yale’s problems are magnified when Helen finds out about his liaison with Angie. When he tries to break off the illicit relationship, Angie drops the bombshell that she’s pregnant. Then, less than an hour later, she is murdered.

    Yale and Helen are such a dysfunctional couple that one wonders whether the creator of the game disapproves of interracial marriage. Even Angie is implied as having a few screws loose. In fact, just about every female character is depicted as a crazy harpy. Ambition is mildly pro-black-man but resolutely anti-white-woman.

    Here’s a segment in which the player controls a policeman posing as a marriage counselor trying to trace Yale’s movements on the night of the murder. You can see that the game reeks of that peculiarly Canadian brand of lameness (seen in crappy syndicated TV shows such as Mutant X). The interracial aspect just adds another layer of cringe:

    I tried reading Delaney's "Dahlen" a couple times but only made it 40 or so pages before I was completely lost in the weeds. I kept getting hung up on his description of a string of semen bejeweled on someone's leather pants zipper, as if it was a normal, everyday occurrence. From wikiepdia:

    " the novel’s narrative is intermittently incoherent (particularly at its end)"

    When I reviewed the Norton Anthology of African-American Literature for “National Review” in 1997, I remarked that Samuel R. Delaney was the only author in the 2500 page book that I’d heard of but didn’t know was black.

    There’s a black woman sci-fi author of the next generation who is supposed to be legitimately good, but I really haven’t read much sci-fi since 1975, and most of that was 1950s stuff, along with skimming sci-fi magazines like “Analog” at the library in the early 1970s.

    OK, Octavia E. Butler is who I am thinking of.

    She was a graduate of Pasadena City College along with Jackie Robinson and my dad, so I am biased in her favor.

    Actually, I thought the original description (“A bride motors down a highway in her wedding dress”) was a riff on Prince’s 1980 smutfest Dirty Mind, particularly the triple-XXX “Head” (in which the Purple One seduces a virgin on her wedding day, as she was “on [her] way to be wed”). Then I realized Canadian blacks are too dull and boring to have dug Prince.

    I think it's a game of "You wanna touch my hair, don't you! Oh, you do! Well, can't touch this sucka!" in an attempt to get white people to actually want to touch black women's hair.

    Somebody in the comment sections here a couple of years ago suggested an origin in young black girls feeling left out of white girl bonding rituals of combing and braiding each others’ hair, spoken to with kindness but kept literally beyond arm’s length. So the feeling would be you whites are always touching each other’s hair so why don’t you want to touch mine. This might especially be the case for first generation African immigrants parachuted into suburbia, rather than black Americans with their own communities and habits of keeping whites at arm’s length.

    Arguably, SCTV was the greatest thing ever on TV. Of course, that was premised on everything else sucking, so it's literally an outlier. And the cast likely sucked up all the available talent.

    To be fair, Slings and Arrows was also pretty good, although even they had to use Mark McKinney from Kids in the Hall. If there were a Conservative TV Network, it would be fun to do a SCTV/Slings and Arrows style satirical series based on these woke sci/fi plots.

The closest we came to getting it right may have lasted from about 1945 to about 1963 in the northern United States generally, perhaps for a time earlier in loci like New England. (People in their mundane lives do a passable job; the problems arise when school administrators and lawyers begin harassing normal people).

    The social optimum is approached when you have freedom of association, impersonal standards of performance and conduct, and intellectual interests driven by a search for quality and consequence. That’s the last thing our professional-managerial class wants.

  84. I haven’t read all the comments, but it struck me what was happening and I wanted to share my insight.

    Every society appears to need a scapegoat, someone to blame for things going wrong. The scapegoat role is independent of any reality. It doesn’t necessarily contradict reality, but if it reflects reality, that is coincidental.

    The Jews used to be scapegoats for village or region catastrophes in the Middle Ages. Communists were scapegoats for problems like uppity colonial possessions in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The scapegoat itself is a biblical concept where a goat is released with all the sins of the village on its head.

    It’s becoming pretty obvious that white people are becoming the scapegoats of society. Every time a dysfunctional black fails at something, or shoots another dysfunctional black, or a Somali stabs another Somali, or a neurotic female can’t sleep at night, it’s put on the heads of whites. Since whites are the official scapegoat, it’s perfectly acceptable to revile them, ostracize them and persecute them.

    This is leading to a dark place. There is really no philosophical reason, according to popular thought, why whites can’t be attacked, persecuted, or killed. This is typified by the Soros-sponsored states attorneys who routinely release blacks who commit assault or murder against whites. Since whites are to blame for all the dysfunctions of non-white populations, it’s simply payback time. They sincerely believe this.

    I emphasize the scapegoat meme is independent of facts. It’s driven by emotion, and also serves as a device to unify the community that does the scapegoating. So grifters like Maxine Waters, AOC, Ilhan Omar and the rest unify their base on the scapegoating of whites, and get very rich in the process. Whites who resist this scapegoating in any organized way get the full crush of the law against them.
