    HI there

    How do you feel by watching a hollywood movie from the present in which all blacks are dumb, evil or both and all young, blonde, smart americans are the good and the clever charakters? I noticed that last in the movie "Chaos" with Jason Stratham ans Welsey Snipes.

    I made my master degree in media studies but this isn´t sufficient to recognize that there is still a strong and evident racism by the responsible descision makers of Hollywood movies.
    It´s not that placed on the first look on the surface like it was in these "blaxploitation" movies from the 70ths. But it isn´t hidden that deep in the subtext that anybody could denie it.

    I notice now that the Blacks aren´t the all-time-evil was they´re were (that are the muslims now). But they transformed to an archetype of an parvenu who crosses ethic lines or immolate any morals by his ambition.

    Is it that astonishing then, that the racism itself keeps actual, virulant and infinite in the minds of the americans? Even George Lucas´Charakters from Star Wars are close by racistic stereotypes.

    Hollywood is shaping the minds of blacks and whites alike.

    Every black seems to be on crack, is a criminal, and talks like a hood, or a least a large majority of them are.


    Ever wonder why the Cosby Show was so successful?

    Because it showed another side of being black. A side that could fit into American life. The side that Hollywood doesn't really want to foster because it's based on a normal life and building a solid future. Parents that are successful and not living off the government teat. MLK wasn't mentioned much and the f bomb was floated on a regular basis.

    The Cosby Show gave us a side of being black that removes stereotypes and tried to limit prejudice. Racial themes were kept to a minimum.

    None of this works for the Democrats of course, which the Hollywood crowd supports.

    Guess you can make just about any worthless endeavor into a masters program.

    I always wondered what good getting a masters in literature was.

    It's no new phenomenon.
    My favorite is 'True Lies' with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
    In the end scene, the Arabs are being massacred on the top of a high-rise building with a machine-gun which is mounted on an Aircraft.
    The leader of the Arabs jumps onto the plane and somehow he gets entangled with his clothes on a missile of the aircraft.
    That missile then is being fired and the Arab explodes together with the missile.

    The difference between shitty trash shows (like this damn german "junglecamp") and a great tv series like "Breaking Bad" shows the power of skilled, enthusiastic and educated media diploma holders. Do you think "the godfather" was written and directed by practicians?

    What yo you mean with "Worthless"? WHat´s master-worthy in your opinion? Which degree do you both have?

    He was a terrorist that enjoyed murdering millions of innocent people.

    Who cares what nationality he was.
