More racism in American film and television

Battlestar Galactica depicts a universe where Africans can be chained and led about by their white masters


The Shield (2006) – An all-white police unit is sent into African neighborhoods to harass and kill Africans. The leader of this group forces himself upon the wife of an African detective and later brags about it to him.

Battlestar Galactica (2006) – An African man is paraded around in chains and is forced to wear a collar around his neck.

The Village (2004) – Whites create their private little world that includes no people of color.

Shrek (2001) - The makers of this film thought that a donkey should be voiced by an African man.

Stargate (1994) - A distortion of a historical truth: while the ancient Egyptians were black Africans they were not killers nor were they led by she male Ra’s.

King of New York (1990) – Africans are depicted are killers and drug dealers. And to add insult to injury they work for a white man named Frank White.

Marked for Death (1990) – A violent white man attacks Africans in Chicago and takes his war of aggression to an African island nation.

Dukes of Hazzard (1979) – A revisionist history where the Confederacy won the war and the South is African-free.

Different Strokes (1978) - Two African children are taken by a white capitalist to rise as his own.

The French Connection (1971) – Africans are depicted are drug users and criminals and racist police are shown to be heroes by beating them at every opportunity.

Tarzan (1984, 1935) – Africa is depicted as a savage jungle land and no mention is made of African civilization.

"Battlestar Galactica (2006) – An African man is paraded around in chains and is forced to wear a collar around his neck."

If you watched the program, instead of making assumptions, you would know that this character isn't African, and he wasn't paraded around.

um - if I may I would like to comment on your "insights." Of course I am a depraved white man who couldn't possibly understand your higher intellect.

The Shield (2006) – An all-white police unit is sent into African neighborhoods to harass and kill Africans. The leader of this group forces himself upon the wife of an African detective and later brags about it to him.

Uh, well the last time I watched the Shield it was about a white cop who was looking out for his own interests and pretty much killing and screwing over anyone who got in his way, not just black people.

The Village (2004) – Whites create their private little world that includes no people of color.

how could I have missed the racism in this picture? Oh that's right, it was supposed to be set in the late 1700's when most african americans in the colonies would have been servants/slaves, you probably wouldn't have liked that either.

Shrek (2001) - The makers of this film thought that a donkey should be voiced by an African man.

So they gave a funny part in a movie to a funny man, who happens to be black, hurry get the ACLU.

Stargate (1994) - A distortion of a historical truth: while the ancient Egyptians were black Africans they were not killers nor were they led by she male Ra’s.

Ah, a historical truth?? The movie was SCIENCE FICTION. You know playing off the whole idea that the pyramids were made by aliens? Plus how do you know that the pharoah didn't swing both ways?

Marked for Death (1990) – A violent white man attacks Africans in Chicago and takes his war of aggression to an African island nation.

Only b/c he was a cop and they were dealing drugs and then tried to kill him. But they're Jamacian not african and the last time I check it was the Carribean islands not the african islands.

Dukes of Hazzard (1979) – A revisionist history where the Confederacy won the war and the South is African-free.

But come on, you got to see Catherine Bach in Daisy Duke shorts, even a black man has to give it up for that.

Different Strokes (1978) - Two African children are taken by a white capitalist to rise as his own.

You mean raise, are you perhaps envious that you weren't 'rised' in a penthouse with a half sister that turned to porn?

Tarzan (1984, 1935) – Africa is depicted as a savage jungle land and no mention is made of African civilization.

Somehow if Tarzan was raised by a family of gorillas in a Suburb of South Cape Town, the story would loose some of its appeal.

You know, you're onto something here. The big, fat, ugly bastard ogre thing is given a Scot's accent. Those fucking white English cuntstacks! Just as well we scots are blackmen too: sons of africa and sisters of eden. We're right behind you Darth Cunto.

"The Shield" was intended to portray racist, corrupt and unpleasant characters, it is not designed to portray positive characters they are supposed to be examples of unpleasant police

I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found
any interesting article like yours. It
is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
you did, the web will be much more
useful than ever before.
