Racism in American film
Since America is a racist country towards Africans it is only natural that American films reflect this hate. Here is only a short list of examples:
Man of Steel (2013) - A super being from another world turns out to be....white.
Prometheus (2012) - An African man is used to transport rich white people to exploit the biotechnology of an alien race.
Thor (2011) - Another film where a being with powers is portrayed to be a white Aryan being. An African man with mutant eyes serves him.
Inception (2010) An alternative world without Africans is created by white people.
The Road (2009) The only African man shown in the film is shown to be a thief.
300 (2007) - A African warrior is kicked down a bottomless pit by a group of white warmongers.
Spiderman 3 (2007) The color black is deemed evil and ugly when Spiderman appears as a black figure when he wears a black outfit. The message is that any dark skin person therefore must be ugly or evil.
Casino Royale (2006) A blue eyed white man chases a African and kills him while attacking the embassy of a African nation.
Rocky Balboa (2006) An old white man is called upon to defeat the African boxing champion who is 30 years his junior.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006) - People of African heritage are depicted as being savages which is a gross historical error considering that African societies were far more advance than any European nation at this time.
Superman (2006) – Another “Superman” film where the lead character is depicted as a blue-eyed super Aryan.
The DaVinci Code (2006) – Not a single African character in the film despite the fact Jesus was African.
Curious George (2006) – A white interloper goes to Africa and kidnaps a monkey that has no tail and walks upright and essentially acts as the white man’s servant. In other words, a metaphor for an African slave.
Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005) – An African Jedi played by Samuel L. Jackson is killed by two white men despite having superior skills than them.
I,Robot (2004) – A future world where apparently there are no African women so the African men must mate with a white woman.
The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000) - The black man is portrayed as being nothing more than a smiling simpleton whose purpose on Earth is only to serve the white man.
The Matrix (1999) - African actor Laurence Fishburne plays a man looking for a savior who turns out to be a white man.
Saving Private Ryan (1998) – The only actor with African blood in the film (Vin Diesel) is among the first to die while the blonde Aryan (Private Ryan) gets to live a long life.
The Nutty Professor (1996) – A African professor is depicted as a nut.

Cliffhanger (1993) – The only African in the film is brutally killed by a white man who impales him upon an icicle in a white European cave.
Robocop (1990) The African mayor of Detroit is portrayed as being a weak-minded fool who is easily manipulated by white men.
Leviathan (1989) – Three survivors (One African and two whites) await rescue from a underwater base being attacked by monsters. The African dies while the whites live.
Superman III (1983) – The movie poster for this film depicts Superman (always a white man of course) carrying a frightened looking Richard Pryor which implies that the African man is helpless without the white man.
Rocky (1976) – A lumbering white man somehow defeats a African boxing champion who is in the prime of his career.
Death Wish (1971) – A white man guns down African men in New York and the white police help him escape at the end!
