They've been conditioned by Birth of A Nation which employed whites in blackface to play the key black roles.

And phenomenons like Elvis and Pat Boone making a mint singing Black-invented music to an audience that looks down on such music when performed by the originators.

It really does date back to that one film.

glen does hail Birth of a Nation one of the greatest movies ever made.

glen, you mentioned the movie Precious. I admit I never saw it, not really into most dramas. But it was a critical and box-office success. Are you saying it would have been a better movie and a bigger success if a white woman, say Scarlet Johansson, had played the lead in a fat suit and blackface?


Lol

Yeah I didn't understand the point at all of bringing up Gaborey Sidibe.

Yeah, no shit. Looking at her Wiki, she's been in eight movies since her first role in Precious, and lots of TV shows, where she has had regular roles. I mean, she's obviously a successful working actress.

But, she's black, so glen obviously holds her in contempt too. He thinks having Scarlet Johansson in blackface and a fat suit would have been MUCH better.

Ghost in a Shell was a whitewashed Manga film that was a box-office dud:

Ghost in the Shell: Studio admits whitewashing controversy hurt film at the box office

The film, which boasted a $110 million budget, took just over $19 million on its opening weekend

Has Hollywood finally learned the lesson that, if you anger a good chunk of your audience, they may not turn up opening day?

Speaking candidly to CBC, Paramount's domestic distribution chief Kyle Davies confessed that the reasoning behind Ghost in the Shell's poor box office performance may, unsurprisingly, be the whitewashing controversy that sprung up over the film's domination by white actors in an adaptation of the distinctly Japanese manga.

"We had hopes for better results domestically. I think the conversation regarding casting impacted the reviews," Davis stated. "You've got a movie that is very important to the fanboys since it's based on a Japanese anime movie. So you're always trying to thread that needle between honouring the source material and make a movie for a mass audience. That's challenging, but clearly, the reviews didn't help."

The film, which boasted a $110 million budget, took just over $19 million on its opening weekend; beaten by, of all things, Dreamworks' animated movie The Boss Baby. Ghost in the Shell's only hope now of avoiding a major box office bomb is if the film's international audiences turn out in force.

Though Davis may be skirting around the issue slightly in attempting to place blame on critics, it's comforting at least to see the studio recognise that audiences took issue with the film's whitewashing, and particularly that Paramount didn't attempt to take the usual route of blaming the entire thing on the fact it's a rare female-led property.

Lol smdh..

Emmy nominations came out the other day and Netflix and HBO led the pack with the most noms. Netflix. Ten years ago, and this Variety article states it nicely,no "mainstream" person, whatever glen thinks that is, could have fathomed a streaming movie rental service would dominate Emmy nominations. And this is not to mention Hulu and Amazon.

Point is, broadband in every home, streaming, social media, YouTube, even things like Facebook Watch, are changing the nature of what a movie is, what a show is, what showbusiness is, what a "star" is, and who thinks so (i.e., what an audience is). Cable did this in the 90s vs broadcast television and film studios. Television did this vs the studio system. Sound film did it vs radio. And so on.

So while some people are stuck with 80s ideas about stars, productions, and entertainment consumers, the reality has evolved. I think that being stuck in this model, glen doesn't get that trans people in the bizness are just trying to get paid and that they should not have to beg or petition or lobby for roles and job opportunities.

Cardinals fire manager Mike Matheny amid multiple controversies

The St. Louis Cardinals announced a shocking organizational shakeup on Saturday, firing manager Mike Matheny during his seventh year with the team.

"Triumph of the Will" got plenty of positive reviews back in 1935. Although revisions down the road identified it for what it actually was...an enormous snooze, as opposed to "Birth of a Nation". Where the continuing accolades in this country provide all the confirmation one needs to identify how little difference there is between this country today and this country in 1850.

I only know its web site, and it's weird. It has a lot of the same cognitive dissonance that I get from Russian trolls, though I doubt it's one of those. Something's a little off.

Something is WAY off and dont think I will be all full of myself when it is finally proven who is a russian asset.

It was

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Marsh

who had a Sunday show on XM; Marsh, who is married to Springsteen's co-manager Barbara Carr, and he would explain that Bernie had been in politics for a very very long time with NO accomplishments.

Up until the recent bill he got thru about veterans, he had ZIP of importance.

And Dave warned people about Bernie, and I listened. he didnt claim he was KGB but he did say there was something wrong. This was all pre 2016 and boy oh boy did we find out WHAT it was that was wrong.

If you tried to elect rump or NOT elect Hillary you could not write it better or do it better.

Stay tuned, gonna find out more soon.

ps

Marsh is the real deal, early participant of SNCC

Alabama police officers suspended for making hand gesture linked to white power

Four Alabama police officers have been suspended without pay after the city's mayor says they made a hand gesture associated with white supremacist movements in an official photo.

Local news station ABC 33 reports that four officers in the Jasper Police Department were suspended on Tuesday after a photo appeared in the Daily Mountain Eagle showing the four men making an "OK" gesture with their hands, which some say is meant to look like the letters "WP" for "white power."

The use of the word greatest should have been important but, you go ahead with your lying and personal attacks anything that makes you feel superior is ok with me.

Judge rejects proposed Stratford housing complex

BRIDGEPORT - A judge has rejected a developer’s appeal to build a multi-unit housing complex in a wooded area in north Stratford.

In a 29-page decision, Superior Court Judge Dale Radcliffe ruled Tuesday that the planned development by 500 North Avenue LLC could endanger adjoining wetlands. The judge said that the developer’s plea that it planned to include low income housing in the project did not hold water because the area of the planned development is remote and not near any bus lines.

Your move Airbnb

New York City Will Force Airbnb to Disclose Information on Hosts

Airbnb Inc. will need to share the names and addresses of hosts in New York City with officials thanks to a new law, the latest setback for the home-rental company in one of the world’s largest tourism destinations.

The law, which passed 45-to-0 in a city council vote Wednesday, is designed to help enforce existing rules banning short-term rentals. Mayor Bill de Blasio has said he supports the bill. Earlier in the day an Airbnb host backed financially by the company filed a lawsuit against New York City, accusing officials of retaliating against him for speaking out in support of home rentals.
