Of course, in the pre-movie infomercial, all three criminals were white men. Which got me to thinking. In the make believe land of movies, television, and commercials, if there is a heinous crime to be committed, 99.9% of the time, it’s now going to be done by a white guy. In fact, it has to be done by a white guy.
Now I know that Townhall isn’t big on the whole fact-checking business, but you’d think that when one of their columnist cited a supposed statistic — like, for example, that 99.9 percent of heinous crimes shown on TV, in commercials and in movies are committed by white people — that they’d bother to check it out. Not so, apparently.
Political correctness and the fear of offending, or worse yet, getting sued or picketed, is such, that you will no longer see blacks, Hispanics, most minorities, or even women for that matter, commit a fictional crime. No. Hollywood and the ad agencies have decided that criminal activity on film is now the sole domain of the “too successful for his own good” white male.
He’s right — we never, ever see minorities or women committing crimes on TV or in movies. I mean, it’s not like there were any black criminals in the Best Motion Picture of the Year, right? And brown people sure as heck never do anything wrong on hit TV shows. Nope, ain’t no criminals of color ever shown in critically acclaimed films.
The discussion of the article is entertaining in itself. I think my favorite line might be this one:
Why are white men always portrayed as complete moron’s in commercials?
No idea’s here, my friend, no idea’s.
Not so funny is the link to this article, which defines “integration” as “brazen black crime in broad daylight.” Anyone else disturbed that we share our country with these people?
