The study of popular culture can serve as an apparatus to challenge long
held ideologies that reinforce white supremacy. Although popular culture provides a space to critique white supremacy and, most importantly, a platform that can offer alternate representations of people of color (POC) and other marginalized groups, the political, economic, and social structures in the United
States as well as in the global community are deeply rooted in white and
Eurocentric hegemony. Whiteness therefore remains a focal point in our daily discourse as evidenced in the national and cultural spaces surveyed in this special issue, which range from Australia, China, Hawaii, the Middle East, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
