More racism in American films

In American film and television, African actors are often used to protray characters who ill-tempered, criminal and not meant to be taken seriously.


I Am Legend (2007) - It is implied that a African man is responsible for the end of the world.

The Mist (2007) - The best actor in this film, Andre Braugher is depicted as a person who blindly walks in a mist filled with dangerous creatures created by the white men. A white man offers him chicken as a bribe.

American Gangster (2007) – Africans are depicted as drug dealers and criminals.

Man on Fire (2004) – The African man in this film devotes his time protecting a….white child.

Lost (2004) - Africans are portrayed as being liars, killers, drug-dealers or weak-minded and easily controlled by evil white man.

Black Knight (2001) - Martin Lawrence plays an African man who is forced to entertain white people at an amusement park.

Traffic (2001) - The African boyfriend of a white girl is shown to be a thug and drug dealer.

Death Wish (1971) - A white man is allowed to gun down Africans in New York City.

March of the Wooden Soldiers (1934) - A race of white robot soldiers is used to attack the local
indigenous people.

The character Andre played in The Mist was written that way in The Mist short story, with one exception, the character in the book was white


Er, American Gangster, based on a true story about a real black man

Don't forget those Tyler Perry movies. I mean, he's a brother and all, but the stereotypes - I know you feel me the Truth. Something's gotta be said, and you da man when it comes to this stuff. Set 'em straight.

And also, American Gangster: I feel you. The actual man was illiterate, and in the movie, he could read. What's that about?

Echo said...

If anything, YOU are the racist here. It is you who brings up the race card, it is you who has the problem with Andre Brauer, a fantastic Shakespearean trained actor, who took on the role of Norton in The Mist. Sounds like you have some personal issues regarding race and need some counseling to deal with this problem. Please seek help.

You're only making light of this stuff based on the color of their skin. Congratulations, you're a racist. How ironic.

What the fuck...

You are extremely ignorant and need to stop bitching and moaning over fictionial movies!!

I think you're thinking about this narrow-mindedly. You're decontextualizing the situations and selectively thinking about only certain aspects of the films.

American Gangster is steeped in fact, Frank Lucas did exist and he was a black man.

Andre stepped out into the mist because he was portrayed as a skeptic, not because he was a foolish person. If you actually saw the film and not just the advertisement, you would know that white people didn't create the monsters. The most prominent soldier shown was the 'MP' who was african-american.

You really are just an idiot.

Regarding The Mist: No one forced the actor to take the part. He definitely knew his character was going to be killed. (It would have been difficult to act convincingly if he hadn't read the script.)

Also, I find you to be incredibly predictable. I'll wager your response to my line above "No one forced the actor to take the part" will be something along the lines of "This fine African actor was coerced into a movie created by the white man to show (stereotype here)." There, I saved you the trouble.

Logic has been exposing false truth for years, and it's just as applicable here.

I Am Legend (2007) - It is implied that a African man is responsible for the end of the world.

Actually, it's shown pretty clearly that a black man is responsible for saving the world, but facts don't work too well with people like you do they?

I think we need to ban all black people from being in movies and this should solve the problem!

I love people who never see the movie, but see racism under every rock...

Captain Lugo Arnie Wartooth said...

You are like a conspiracy theorist, in that most of your falsehoods have truth inside (in varying amounts). Yes, white people have indeed exploited many other races to serve their needs, but who has not? instead of preaching a message of victimhood and separation, shouldn't your responsibility be to strive to unite and mend the damage from all this hate? It is a wonder that racism should still exist, considering the scientific fact that ALL life, not just humans, descended from one being. You are my brother, but you're peddling crack as the truth, and I can't abide by that. Take the blinds off man. Till then you can't smoke my weed. Nor are you welcome in any place where the Wondercrew roams.

i agree with what u say somewhat, but the adverse effects of such a substance would be devastating. if we were to mix thc,dmx, AND candy corns....it would corner the market. it would be in such demand that we would not be able to supply it fast enough. we could however lower the candy corn concentration in the solution to a level that keeps addiction controllable

BigCat said...

I diasgree. here's three examples where niggers were portrayed in a positive manner:

1, The Tom Clancy/Jack Ryan movies in which james Earl Jones was a nigger who was head of the CIA;

2. The first Die Hard movie had a nigger who was a computer genius for the bad guys;

3. Bruce ALmighty...God himself was a nigger! How can you top that?

Always the victim aren't we? Wanna help some real victims? Get off your fu-king blog and maybe go help those poor black folk in Africa who just can't seem to stop butchering each other. It's a pretty tough job isn't it? Always playing the race card, playing the victim and never really doing much in the way of problem solving beyond spouting off about your hypersensitive rhetoric. It's the time we live in pal. America is not perfect my friend, but neither is the world, and you should consider yourself blessed beyond reason to be able to sit there nice and cozy typing on your blog while others have to go out in the world and fight the good fight. Life is easy for the armchair quarterback, but you wouldn't know much about that would you, because those damn white folks don't let black fellas play QB, right? Sorry bad joke, but so is your blog. Grow up, get over it, and move on with your life.

A hundred bucks says you've never even watched a single one of the movies that you claim to be racist. It's ignorant fuckheads like yourself that keep racism alive. You are no credit to your race. You are a waste of space and time and you need to get yourself a gun, put the barrel to your temple and pull the trigger. Killing yourself is the only way that I could see you doing something positive for the world. You racist piece of fucking shit. Burn in hell mother fucker, burn in hell.

Man...I thought the blogger was a dumb ass...until I read some of the "nigger" comments. He's a big black dumb ass and you're a bunch of white fucktards. You all make me sick. I hope you assholes stay confined to your basements or whatever and don't get out an breed. I'd hate to see the person that would fuck any of you.

Note the sheer hate directed at me for merely expressing the truth as an African man.

In "I Am Legend" it was the white woman in the beginning who was basically responsible for killing off most of humanity. Will Smith's character is the one who figured out the cure.

In terms of Traffic, I'm not sure who you mean. If you mean Michael Douglas' daughter then "boyfriend" is a huge euphamism. That was just trading sex for drugs. Also there were other black characters (like Don Cheadle) who were much more positive. And I think Topher Grace's speech about race and drugs should redeem many of the concerns regarding racism in the movie.

Anonymous said...

Apparently someone didn't actually see I Am Legend. The virus was created by a white chick and the Will Smith character is considered the savior--the "legend" of the title.

thats probably the worst descriptions of all these movies ive ever heard. it sounds like you saw the previews talked shit about the previews and never decided to watch any of these movies.

Robots are neither white nor black. These robots are painted wood. They have no ethnicity. The toy soldiers do not attack the indigenous people...they defend against an invasion of the indigenous peoples who happen to be murderous monsters.
