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 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.

So, it's come to this. Conservatives are actually whining about a movie where a slave kills slave traders.

Old conservative white guys sure are a bunch of easily frightened little biatches. No wonder they buy all those guns.

Dark and lonely on the summer night.
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
Watchdog barking -   Do he bite?
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
Slip in his window,
Break his neck!
Then his house 
I start to wreck!
Got no reason --
What the heck!
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
C-I-L-L ...
My   land - lord ...

phaseolus: ...star Jamie Foxx's monologue on Saturday Night Live a little over a week ago, in which he joked about being excited "to kill all the white people in the movie." ...

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?
 
Noel, you've got my back on this one, right?

liam76: Halli: liam76: Alphax: liam76: I don't know about anybody else, but I am more inclined to see the movie now.

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.

baufan2005: 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?


And there it is.. defense of slavery, in thread.

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?

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.

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

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...


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.
 
Genetically that makes me American. No other way to describe it.
