I gave you the opinion of someone in hollywood, and all you did was tear that successful black man down and cast him off as a "uncle tom" because, he didnt agree w your opinion... like you afro-centric racist wanna be militants always do, conviently... im guessing will smith has more exp. in and near hollywood than you do?
... and I didnt tear down steve harvey, I gave a honest impression to why he wants to write hollywood off as "racist" because of his own personal reasons... hes far from a "failure" in life.
there is no more racism in hollywood than there would be if I went to a NAACP meeting and tried networking w successful blacks. Some would be open to me, most would be if i could make them some $, and others wouldnt be no matter what.
True true. but it's not fair. You're not supposed to point out that black people are racist as well. That's not fair. You're supposed to flagellate yourself and wait for black people to tell you when to stop after they are finally satisfied. Yes, I'm being sarcastic , but there's actually a lot of truth to it. This really does go on in the minds of some black people.

Excellent, excellent post and illustration.

Majority rules is NOT racism. I constantly mention numbers on this forum and for the most part it is largely ignored. Majority has a built in advantage already which is why blacks need to quit focusing so much on the majority and simply worry about themselves group wise. If they would simply do this, they wouldn't need things lowered just so they can get in the game, because they would have worked hard as a group and be fully prepared to actually compete.

Affirmative action may be needed, not sure, but it sure shouldn't have a base solely on race nor gender. Folks need to be qualified as well and that's the bottom line.

Agreed...but the purpose of that is to serve as a psychological conditioning tool...designed to implant the deep seeded belief in the minds of all women...especially black and white women...that black men are all weak and unable to think,strive,survive and flourish in challenging situations!
NEVER MIND THE ACTUAL REAL WORLD HISTORY OF BLACKS WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH SOME HELLISH EXPERIENCES!
*The flip side to this is the way that they always make white males out to be super-hero like beings...able to withstand all odds!
This is why we have threads like "Black men are jealous of white men"...here on Topix!
They are not based on reality or any of the very outstanding examples to the contrary of the title's assertion!
There are only certain people who can be conditioned to dislike themselves and even hate themselves. If watching some movie makes you feel like crap well one should have the good sense not to watch the movie. Don't watch any movie then if that's the case.

Personally...I didn't love the movie....it wasn't one of my top picks of the year at all...not by far...but I don't know if I'd say that it sucked...but then...why would anyone here be surprised that you had issues with it...it was about straight,heterosexual men,their lives and experiences...and one of the characters romnce with a woman!

So of course your gay ass would say something like this...how surprising!

Look, face the facts. How many scholarships are handed to black people with worse SAT scores than the white person who worked harder and should have gotten it? How many lower scoring black people are hired as the Police Officer or Fire Chief? You're delusional. It's one thing to hand things to black people that they haven't legitimately earned, but to have them ignore or forget this is obnoxious. You hand things to them and they glorify themselves and tell themselves this glowing false story about themselves.
Executives need to appear fair, so they love it when they can honestly find a qualified black man because they are so desperate to appear fair and these qualified candidates are so far and few between. So because of this, a slightly less qualified black man will get the job before a white person, ESPECIALLY in the executive world. I worked for an Engineering firm, and they looked lily white so they really wanted to hire a black person. They couldn't find a qualified black engineer that met the standards and had the experience they were looking for. They finally did hire a less than qualified black engineer, and, of course, he sucked and everybody just had to accept that and suffer through it. But they sure didn't look lily white anymore, and that's what they wanted.
First of all...you're typing out of you ass...why?...because in reality you have no way of knowing what others SAT scores are...and secondly....there are white males and females who get into programs with less than perfect scores and credentials...the idea that all white people have the highest SATs,Entrance requirements and credentials is again...a big ass myth!

How do I know this...because I know several AA that are in key positions in both the professional world and in academia!

What I love is the way that arrogant,cocky assholes like you walk around acting as if all white people are totally prepared and qualified to receive the jobs,opportunities and breaks that they often get...while in the real world I know of several examples to the contrary!

Yet have you tell it...white folks are always the best of the best and only chosen based upon their hard work...and black people are somehow just "given things" out of the kindness of whites hearts...Lmbao!

*My wife is a college professor...and I can tell you story after story about white kids...even from so called better school systems....who are completely unprepared and have absolutely no clue as to what is going on nor any idea of what they are expected to do!

It's actually disturbing!

Lmbao...idiot...it was a true story about what a group of black men did with their lives...now here your ignorant racist ass is trying to minimize it...as if it was all fantasy....just dreamed up to "glorify" black people!

Again...I love the way that white males obnoxiously try to claim that black men/people have done nothing to contribute to the greatness of this country...fix on and go on and on about the overwhelming burden of the social ills of the "black community" and swear that racism doesn't exist...but then turn right around in the very next statement out of their own mouths and try to marginalize and malign black people in every way possible!

I mean now here you are trashing a film about American history...nothing more,nothing less!

Never mind that 98% of the films made in America are all designed to make white males look almost superhuman...you're so conditioned and blind to this fact and have accepted that somehow things are supposed to be this way...that you have the nerve to sit up and type something this damn ignorant....the fact is what...if it's non-white male praising....then you see no value in it...BECAUSE IN YOUR MIND...AGAIN...ONLY WHITE MALES HAVE DONE ANYTHING OF VALUE..LMBAO...YET HAVE YOU TELL IT...WHITE FOLKS ARE ALL SO WELL INTENTIONED AND DESERVING OF ALL THAT THEY GET...LOL!

It makes whites look schizophrenic and hard for anyone with an ounce of real intelligence,self respect and dignity to take you seriously!

Again...all that you're doing is making big huge ass assumptions...to justify whites fucked up...racist behavior!

The bottom line is what?...its not about percentages...not at all...the bottom line is that America is not all white...nor is it all black...there are in fact all sorts of people here!

SO WHITES ARE JUSTIFIED IN THEIR TREATMENT OF HISTORY,SOCIOLOGY AND EVERY DAY LIFE...BY MARGINALIZING THE PRESENCE AND OUTCOME OF THAT OF NONWHITES....IN THE MEDIA...BECAUSE WHITES ARE THE MAJORITY...IS THAT IT...LMBAO!

Majority doesn't have to be all. Majority just means more. This country is a race based system PLUS majority rules. In other words, whites have built in advantages because of the race they have and also because they are the majority.

Says you...yet another person with a fucked up mentality...I disagree...wholeheartedly...no blacks should not give up...we should continue to look for roles that are truthful,honest and worthwhile...roles that offer the chance to shed light on our story...in all of it's realities!

We should also speak out...about an industry that we have both the talent and every right to participate in...as American citizens and professional artist...just like every and anyone else...who we should also support in their efforts to expand the narrow scope of Hollywood...

In the worthwhile and profound effort to show our experiences here in America(our country)and how they have impacted said country...that is American history....because we're Americans...

We make up the landscape of America...a country that is in fact...more than the narrow perspective that we see...

A narrow perspective created by white males and designed to malign every one that is not a white male or female!

Pssst...you might want to spend some time in the inner cities of America...where in fact...one is able to see white males cutting hair in black barbershops!

But if a white male can't cut black hair...which is very different from that of white hair...then why the hell would any shop with any kind of pragmatic sense hire a white barber!

Again...your whole comment is filled with assumptions...that you view as fact...because you are in fact the very type of person who runs Hollywood...biased,racist and narrow minded!

Unlike like whites...we AA have always had to live in two different worlds...you all haven't...so your claims and examples actually hold less weight than you seem to realize!

Smh. How do you think you represent a free mind? You are begging and whining for other dudes to quit running you over and making you feel bad about yourself. You sound ridiculous.

Bottomline is majority rules. If you don't like this, well that's just too bad. Majority doesn't mean all. Therefore you countering with they aren't all of the population still means you don't get it.

As far as them not being the only ones who contributed to this country..yes, they were the only ones who did so legimately without slavery. Nothing you say will change this. If what blacks supposedly did was legitimate (without the help of slavery), you would know it because you wouldn't have to beg for inclusion in the first place. You'd automatically have it, just like they do.
