I guess that Negros should remain slightly pudgy and magical, as opposed to cowboys...

In a typical NewsBusters post, Noel Sheppard cluelessly wrote, "Imagine the uproar if a white actor joked about killing all the black people in a new film he was starring in."
 
 
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.

I don't know what you're talking about, Tarantino's last movie was about some Jews killing a whole bunch of Germans, and people loved it. I'm sure people would love a movie just as much about a bunch of Germans killing a whole bunch of Jews, right?

I think the difference is that black people spent centuries being told they shouldn't like being black and that it made them lesser. Kind of like gay pride versus straight pride, or women's pride, etc.
 
If your entire race is denigrated in your own country and you finally have the guts to say, "No. I'm not ashamed. I'm happy with me.", that isn't racist. It's not inherently racist to proclaim that you like being white either, but it's certainly odd and has no similar context.

Scotch-Irish, English, Swedish (mom's side); Hungarian, Austrian and Italian (dad's side). BUT, that's deceptive, because my maternal grandmother's people were FFVs: slaveholding Virginia bluebloods till the ridgerunners had enough back in 1863 and broke away with West By God Virginia; and everyone else were a bunch of steerage-crossing immigrants. Variously lumberjacks, coal miners and itinerant entertainers.

2012-12-20 02:07:42 AM  
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.

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?

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?

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

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?

Ted Kennedy's Brain Tumor: 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?


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....

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.

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.

ongbok: 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.


Good call - most murders by blacks are against each other. So no danger then.

Five years ago, failed movie critic Michael Medved finally white-knighted slave owners across the U.S. (WARNING: Townhall weapons-grade DERP right here): Link

Just check out this gem:
For slave owners and slave dealers in the New World, however, death of your human property cost you money, just as the death of your domestic animals would cause financial damage. And as with their horses and cows, slave owners took pride and care in breeding as many new slaves as possible. Rather than eliminating the slave population, profit-oriented masters wanted to produce as many new, young slaves as they could.

See, blacks? You might never had been had it not been for that kindly plantation owner who forced 2 people to breed.
 
2012-12-20 09:46:41 AM  
So, basically, another in a long line of examples of white conservatives wringing their hands over the (patently absurd) belief that black people may come and drag them from their homes because of an absurdly hyperbolic piece of media obviously meant purely as over-the-top entertainment.

As if black people are some sort of mindless group of base animals easily led to severe action by simple stimulus in contradiction to all cultural and ethical mores and taboos they've been exposed to in their lives.

But don't you dare call them racists. No siree. It's perfectly normal and reasonable to think a group of people are going to turn into psychopaths over a goofy movie just because they have more skin pigmentation. Yep. Toooootally normal thing to believe.

What does politics have to do with any of this. I have no problem with him making a movie where the hero kills as many white people as he can, including the white guy that helped him along the way. This is America. Freedom of speech and all. I see movies for entertainment. There is nothing about vilifying and killing people of a certain race, in this case, my race.

I'll see the Tarantino film after this one. I am sure jango will so fine. There are plenty of people out there that do want to see people get massacred because they are white. That group will watch the movie over and over again

I think you are missing my point. I wasn't trying to imply that all white conservatives should be scared. Or really that any white conservatives should be scared because they are white conservatives. What I was trying to say, and apparently I did so very poorly was that anyone who was fearful of violence being done against them was probably a pretty awful person and probably deserves the violence; as such they should stop being such assholes and they would have no fears.

His comments are a bit extreme, but he's right about a couple things. The for-profit prisons seek to incarcerate as many people as possible and our draconian drugs laws often treat addiction as a serious crime as opposed to a public health issue. Snatching someone and putting them in a cage for decades because they're a heroin addict probably isn't the most efficient solution. Nor is crowding our prison system and bleeding our resources fighting something as relatively harmless as marijuana.

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

Yeah?  Wanna fight about it?

Wayne 985: His comments are a bit extreme, but he's right about a couple things. The for-profit prisons seek to incarcerate as many people as possible and our draconian drugs laws often treat addiction as a serious crime as opposed to a public health issue. Snatching someone and putting them in a cage for decades because they're a heroin addict probably isn't the most efficient solution. Nor is crowding our prison system and bleeding our resources fighting something as relatively harmless as marijuana.


But it gives you a totally legit way to keep down those damn minorities with disproportianate sentencing between whites and non-whites. Hey, once it's not legal to discriminate you gotta get sneaky, you know?

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

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.

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.


What I find is funny is that people complained about a black person playing Asgaard and you saying it doesn't make sense to throw a black person into Norse mythology even if it is the Marvel version, but you don't bat an eye at an Asian person being thrown in with Hogun.

That and Thor was a redhead in Norse mythology. I guess colour only counts when it comes to skin.

What I find funny is that people complained that a movie about a guy from another dimension who wields a magic hammer failed to be historically accurate.

No, you twat, I was busy with other things.

Changing Thor's hair color from red to blonde is a relatively minor issue, as both hair colors can be found amongst the Norse peoples. Throwing an Asian into the mix is another thing entirely as you are adding someone of another race from a different part of the world. So yes, your comment was stupid.

Actually one of Thor's defining characteristics from the myths was his fiery red hair. Yet no one bats an eye. Not that I care either way. I just think it's stupid people care about the changes at all. It's Marvel's interpretation. They can do whatever the fark they want.

From now on, any movie about a guy with a magic hammer who crosses over from another dimension should be historically accurate, dammit!

/Actually, it's the free market that makes filmmakers cast minorities in parts traditionally played by whites. They just want to make money and appeal to as wide an audience as possible. Why do you hate the free market, comrade?
