Who is this? Chris Pine, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, or Chris Hemsworth?

Saturday Night Live Host, Chris Pine explains the differences between him and Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth. It’s very funny, charming and well performed. But on a more serious note, cultural dominance looks like this. It looks like this when the paradigm and its institutions and systems embed preferences and privileges for various identity groups. The preference operates without thought. Preferences in the entertainment industry produce carbon copies of what it means to be a superhero, a banker, president or entrepreneur, a real woman. This is why movies like Fast and Furious 8 are a dramatic departure from what it means to be a traditional superhero and it is translating globally. Watch Chris use humor and make an indirect point about the power of paradigms.
