Shostie: Man, just imagine the freak out if they made I Spit On Your Grave today.


They re-made it in 2010. I didn't bother to see it because I figure "you've seen one incredibly uncomfortable rape movie, you've seen them all". And the original was enough for me.

And you know what makes Jamie Foxx's joke about killing white people acceptable and maybe funny? Articles like this that preach irrational fear that black people are out for revenge against white people. It plays on that irrational fear, and most white people are rational people and understand this. So for those of you white people that are complaining about there being no uproar about what Jamie Foxx said, it is because most other white people are pointing and laughing at you and your irrational fears.
 
2012-12-20 02:25:14 AM  
God, we should be so lucky. Black people, if you're planning to kill white people, I can help you find the conservative ones.

Lionel Mandrake: For decades, Hollywood, U.S. textbooks and higher education have stressed that America was founded upon slavery, sexism and genocide. 
 
OK.  So?  You'd rather they lied?

 
Probably.  For them history is what they want to believe, not what actually happened.
 
See also: claims that America was founded as a Christian nation.

It's not the movie, it's that conservatives act like the slave-owning assholes in the movie,

I can't imagine where they would get such ideas.


I appreciate there's some distinction to be made ... but why do I find it so amusing the Russian, Ottoman (which is labeled as such, though the former is not) and Qing are not considered on such a map? Are Arab, Kazakhs, Turkmen and Mongols only worthy of consideration when they're under the yoke of the British or French?
 
2012-12-20 02:35:14 AM  
It's kinda funny when these guys blame movies like this for riots or violence, when they refused to take any responsibility for their own words that have directly and have been specifically acknowledged to have inspired murder on several occasions.
 
2012-12-20 02:37:18 AM  
So, it's come to this. Conservatives are actually whining about a movie where a slave kills slave traders.

hey, i'm PROUD of my whiteness and evil world conquering genetic heritage.  if you tell me i'm evil, I consider that a compliment.

I am Irish-German and Japanese. In the end, I am the genetic Perfect Storm for a rowdy drunk...

Yeah?  Wanna fight about it?

They've been supporting the oppressor against the oppressed for a while. So they're being consistent.

They did do a remake in 2010.

One would think they would only have cause to be worried if they had previously behaved so despicably that they deserve to be a target. Isn't this like saying, "I have been such an incredible asshole to minorities that I deserve what's coming to me"? Why don't you just stop being such cock-waffles and you'll have nothing to worry about?

I just finished that book. I stayed up WAAAAAY too late one night reading it. Very good book, so hard to put down.

When I kill all the whities I see, then whitey he won't bother me,
I'm gonna get me a shotgun and kill all the whities I see.
Then I'll get a white woman who's wearing a navy blue sweater.."


Damn we're old. Remember seeing that air live.

It's funny when a black actor makes that joke. A white guy joking about killing all the black people, that's not funny.

I invite Clueless Noel Sheppard to ponder why that's the case.


Back the truck up. Jamie Foxx hosted a sketch comedy show and the writers chose a shiatty monologue over 90 minutes of this?

It was a good starting point, but the series didn't really pick up until Turn Coat. ;)

Old conservative white guys sure are a bunch of easily frightened little biatches. No wonder they buy all those guns.
 
2012-12-20 06:00:10 AM  
Going to see the movie for entertainment purposes not a history lesson. But I do think that if a white actor (Mel Gibson comes to mind) would have made the same comment about "urban people", folks would be demanding a public apology, donations, rehab, and boycotting the film.

/Thanks Paul Ryan for the "urban" reference

If it makes you feel any better, most online racists aren't really racists, just losers with so little in their lives that making inflammatory comments on the internet is all they have.

The majority of slaves really weren't treated that bad and most where born into slavery, not uprooted and dragged here after the initial giant haul. Think about it this way, if you bought slaves to be your property then why would you malnourish and beat them so bad that they couldn't work? I hear a lot of blacks biatch and complain about their ancestors being brought here against their will. Would they really have rather grown up in tribal Africa and deal with things like Genocide that seems to be a big thing going on over there?

There's always one. "But slavery was GOOD for the blacks! It let them be Americans so they could abuse welfare!"
 
These people are not the brightest lot humanity has to offer, but there are a lot of them concentrated in certain regions of the South.

I wonder how many of them were also part of the Thor boycott for letting them cast a black man to play Heimdal.

I guess the Civil War was really the first salvo in the Civil Rights movement, with the South fighting to preserve the quality of life for slaves?

Fark it Tarantino, gets to shout out Nubian a hundred times and hides behind artistic licence.

Sure you never met a stealth racist or whatever hiding right in the middle.

He'll have his Mel Gibson moment one day.

Ah, that explains why QT is wearing Fubu and speaking in black slang as he does PR for the film. He's pretending to be black as a defensive measure!
 
2012-12-20 07:49:32 AM  
It's a fair bet that whenever the spectacularly untalented Mr. Tarantino makes a movie, that it will be about somebody killing somebody else - doesn't matter who.
F**k him and the wave of cultural trash he rode in on.

I didn't boycott Thor, but Ithought it was a dumb choice. Guy did a good job, but it was a bit jarring to see a black dude running around in the home of Norse gods.

Slightly OT, but I've been listening to a Podcast about those guys, and one thing that struck me is how close 13th cent. medieval Europe came to being steamrolled. If it wasn't for Ogodei Khan dropping dead, and the Mongols withdrawing to sort that out, we might have wound up paying tribute, just like the Russians...

It angers me that stuff like this is glossed over in public schools here in the USA....

Oh come on. The Norse mythology in the Marvel Universe is all over the map. A frost giant named Laufey. That one makes a lot of sense.

Laufey (to a kid reading comics) sounds like Loki.

I realize we are talking about Marvel comics here, not some great work of literature, but throwing a black guy in asgaard was a departure that served no purpose. I can just see some movie exec thinking they need a black character and tossing him in.

But it is a girl's name and the name of Loki's mom. But it did make me laugh. Also the pronunciation of Bifröst.

The entire Marvel universe is a departure from Ásgarður. I just don't get why people get upset about the black guy when everything else is so wrong. Well I get why the wingnuts got upset.

Of course the comic is going to be wrong when compared to the mythology, their premises are largely incompatable.

Most people don't care because your average 10-18yr old comic reader doesn't know anything other than the comic. Throwing changes like that into the movie add nothing and smells like a dumb marketing play to get black people to like it.

Yes, because a black never killed a white without justification. Ever, in history. Must be that "white privilege" justification to homicide.

Yes, after the past four years, I could understand that you wouldn't know what a "job" is, or how to "create one", since there are so few. Answer: Jobs come from Obama's stash.
