This quote doesn't piss me off ...

... but its subtext/what I've inferred from it certainly does.

Sonequa Martin-Green, who stars as Michael on Star Trek: Discovery, said during a recent interview, "You can't love Star Trek and think diversity sucks."

I get the sense she's attempting to dismiss any who dislike the series as backward-thinking and perhaps racist, using logic containing holes we could drive her captain's pet macro-tardigrade through.

From what I've seen so far, this is Trek for the morally-bankrupt ADHD generation.
"Much of [Philip] Pullman’s (and [Richard] Dawkins’) reputation for being intelligent seems to be based largely on the reflexive American tendency to regard a British accent as conferring extra IQ points. Whenever these men speak about matters outside their narrow field of competence, they are complete ninnies and ignorami." – Mark Shea
