Old white guys with lots of money run the world
THE SYNDICATE. A group of old white men who, with their perpetually darkened, smoky atmosphere, plotted evil deeds and dispatched minions to carry these deeds out. Kind of like today’s United States Congress, yes? Whose approval rating at press hovers around a respectable 12%? Not to get too terribly political here, but old white men with money have been in charge of things for a very long time. The notion that primarily white men are seen as leaders is an unshakable one in our culture, despite the numerous qualified women and people of color who are every bit as capable in positions of leadership. Just because we have a black President does not mean that racism is magically over.
