Who cares what Hollywood thinks or does. They should remember who pays their salaries. SC could just boycott their movies.
When is the NAACP boycott going to begin??

the naacp is the largest group of racists around today. All their lies and BS does not change history. They will do anything to make a buck to keep them living high. With luck the boycott will stick with BBW! All mouth for publicity for money. And they want whites not to use the N word when they are prime examples

The NAACP only attacks an historical flag that honors the brave soldiers of the Confederacy, and rightly it should. Their only real purpose is likely because it irritates people, and may keep the contributions coming in.(When I had to apply for a top secret clearance clearance, the KKK, NAACP, and SCLC were all listed as unamerican organizations.)

They do have better choices. The Washington monument and the one dollar bill. Washington not only bought and sold slaves, he bred them for that purpose. They should throw away their dollars and march on the Washington monument.

I am already boycotting Hollywood. Nothing to do with race, just don't like all the B S that actors blow out their blowholes just because they can read what someone else wrote.

Whatever. The terms of the compromise have been honored. Let it go, already. Personally, the confederate flag doesn't carry much meaning for me, but I can respect that for others it does.

NAACP turning to Hollywood for help on getting rid of a Civil War flag?

Isn't like Nazis trying to get Jews to help ban Kosher food?

What's next? A black church suing a tenant in a building they, the church, own?

Ok, the NAALCP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People) says that Hollywood is in agreement with their boycott of the state. The boycott has been in effect since 2000. Well According to , there appear to have been approximately 30 movies that have been filmed in SC since and including the year 2000. Including movies starring prominent black actors and actreses. So, it sounds as if the NAACP is running off at the mouth again, in an attempt to bully their view of how people should think, by threatening the filming industry and the money that brings to the state.

KEYWORDS: "I live in Philly"... which means you know nothing about the South, and how ancient, ignorant and racist they (some people) are.

You obviously is educated about what the flag stands for, and even more pathetic... those clowns that fly it... for all the wrong reasons. I've said it before, if the Sons o Confederate soldiers was so concern about "their" flag... they should attack those idiots (KKK)that is using it in the wrong way.

Good Afternoon, Justice! A lot of this racial division is caused by people whose colons are clogged with years of accumulated waste. My dual action colon cleansing formula can help to get that waste out and make people feel more harmonious and at peace with their brothers and sisters, no matter what race they may be. If you contact me now, I will send you a free 30 day supply of my dual action cleanse formula and a video of me, talking about how it works.

Then should white people just not go see any movies that have a black person in them? Just think if that were to happen..

I wonder who would feel the biggest economic impact?
