DocumentaryGaming in Color exists for anyone who believes that the pixelated world can be a better place for everyone, no matter who they are. It is not too uncommon a tale where a bullied, abused youth seeks solace in a video game, only to find that their one hope of sanctuary, their escape into a virtual universe, is plagued with floods of more vitriol and hatred. This exists doubly so for anyone who is a minority, including people of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. A lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or otherwise queer gamer has a higher chance of being mistreated in a social game. The power dynamic of a geek society tips against them. Diverse queer themes in story lines and characters are still mostly an anomaly in the mainstream video game industry. However, the gaming community is far more colorful than

DocumentaryThe seventh and final film in Frank Capra's epic Why We Fight WWII series, War Comes to America is one of history's greatest propaganda movies. The film traces America's isolationist history while showing how public belief in that idea was eroded by the aggressive actions of the Fascist powers. While in 1936 nearly 95% of Americans told a Gallup poll that they would not want America to intervene in a European war, by 1939 nearly 70% of Americans were in favor of aid to Britain. Similarly, in 1937 only 43% of those polled showed sympathy for China's struggle against Japan, but by 1939 nearly 74% of Americans registered an anti-Japanese sentiment. As Capra demonstrates, these sea changes in public opinion enabled embargoes against Japan, and led to the Lend-Lease program for the British. America was still struggling with
