In his assiduous attack on the institutionalised racism of Hollywood, Mr Shinto-Male rightfully, and commendably, assails the lack of employment opportunity for minority actors, the typecasting of minorities to certain, subservient or villainous roles, and other despicable practices of the American film industry. Yet, it is strange to note that his attacks focuses mainly on the discrimination of a certain type of minority, Asians, primarily, Africans, and Latinos, occasionally. On the subject of the widespread discrimination of Hollywood of the other ethnic groups, such as the Slavs, the Alastians, the Bretons, the Basques, the Metis, the Walloons, the Corsicans, Travellers, Gypsies, etc., he is surprisingly silent, considering his vehemence on the prejudice against other ethnicities. And, where people of these mighty races do get hired, it is interesting to note that they are rarely typed casted as Slavs, Alastians, Bretons, Basques, Walloons, Corsicans, Metis, Gypsies, or whatever their race be, but as a generic American hero, totally eliminating his race and subsuming him in the 'American' Image, or, if their accent gets in the way, as a diabolical foreigner to fight against the American. However, we strongly suspect that this is because Mr Shinto-Male's own racial prejudice, which blinds him to this great problem within Hollywood, that is, that Mr Shinto-Male, if he does not actively hate these groups, do not care about these groups, and, instead, choose to focus on his preferred group, the Asians, with the rare mention of Blacks or Latino. Indeed, that his silence should be so long, when he assails, some would say endlessly and pointlessly, every form of racism, no matter how tenuous his evidence of it are, it comes as a surprise that the plight of these people should be ignored, and can only be explained by his own prejudice against these groups. In our assessment, while Shinto-Male has done good work, it would , appear that Shinto-Male, so long as he lets his prejudice and bigotry blind him, is no better than the Racist Nazi Fascists who run Hollywood, in that the plight of anyone outside his small group is ignored, with either hateful apathy or outright scornful hate.

ignoring longemling who cannot be reasoned with and continuing the goal of his thread and always jumps to conlusions and assumptions. if he bother to read this thread and news from the entertainment world he will see that Asians are the biggest victims of hollywood racism. it's not a fucking preference. continue to give me more reasons to not respond to you and your ignorant posts.



is this the start of the end of white supremacist dominated Hollywood? Asian movies drama and cartoons already have an international audience unfortunately racists some of which crunchyroll members use racist slurs(like weaboo) towards them who watch asian movies. i wonder what new racist slurs would be directed at future African movie and drama fans.


Hollywood and Nollywood actors unite in new film ‘Dr. Bello’

The casting for Dr. Bello joins together powerhouse stars Isaiah Washington, Vivica A. Fox and Jimmy Jean-Louis with Nigerian A-listers Genevieve Nnaji and Stephanie Okereke. It’s not the first time actors from either side of the pond have starred alongside each other, but producer and director Tony Abulu says Dr. Bello symbolizes a new chapter for African movies.

“This is not a film,” Abulu told theGrio. “This is a movement. This is the beginning of a new Africa.”

The Nigerian government recently created a $200 million loan fund to help finance the country’s film projects, which are often quickly produced and sent straight to DVD. That’s not to say the film industry, better known as Nollywood, isn’t already doing well. The world’s third-largest filmmaking industry produces thousands of movies every year, but the hope is that the government’s financial help will result in better quality films and a stronger international audience.

Abulu, a Nigerian-raised filmmaker who now lives in New York City, was the first to receive a loan from the fund. In March, with the $250,000 in hand and other money he fundraised, he set out to produce a film that would appeal to all audiences.

“Whether you’re white, whether you’re black, there’s a message in it specifically for every group and community,” Abulu said. “There’s a spiritual message and there’s a cultural message.”

In the film, cancer specialist Dr. Michael Durant, played by Washington, immerses himself in his work to avoid dealing with the traumatic loss of his 10-year-old daughter from cancer and the ensuing blame from his wife (Fox). In the process, he crosses paths with Dr. Bello (Jean-Louis), an uncertified Nigerian doctor who teaches Durant to look at medicine in a new way while they try to save the life of a young cancer patient. In a series of twists, Dr. Bello becomes ill and Durant must risk everything and travel to the mountains of Nigeria to find a special potion, which holds the cure.

The film was shot in both New York and Nigeria, and Abulu said the cast really enjoyed working together.

“We had a ball,” he said. “The American actors, the Nigerian Actors — it was fun. We had a wonderful time.”

Isaiah Washington, best known for his role in Grey’s Anatomy, told the New York Times the film’s opportunity to “cross-pollinate” Hollywood and Nollywood is what influenced him to get involved. He also said he wants to help make Nigerian films mainstream.

“How can I bring value to destigmatize Nigeria and destigmatize Nollywood?” he said.

Though Dr. Bello had a smaller budget than most Hollywood productions, which at times bill up to 9-digit figures, Abulu is hoping the story surpasses that. He wants to prove that Nollywood can hold its own outside of Africa, and he’s hoping Hollywood is paying attention.

“It’s not going to be easy because Hollywood doesn’t make movies to experiment,” he said. “Africa is a major risk.”

He wants to reveal a market for the continent similar to the way, he said, Tyler Perry proved there was an audience for non-violent black films.

“Nobody ever believes black folks in America will watch something that is not violent. They tell you in Hollywood, if you’re going to make a black movie, it’s got to have violence, sex and crime because they don’t believe there’s a market for anything else.”

“But Tyler Perry was able to prove there was,” he continued. “We are going to prove that people will be interested in Africa.”

Dr. Bello will open the 2012 African Diaspora International Film Fesitval tonight in New York’s Symphony Space, and Abulu is planning a major release for the film by next Spring.

With the release, he hopes to encourage more collaborations between the two film industries. But more importantly, Abulu hopes the film will help grow Nollywood into a solution for Nigeria’s economic problems.

It’s a big goal for one film, but he knows this already.

“I don’t make films for arts sake anymore,” he said. “I make films now to open doors.”

I've wondered why Hollywood doesn't really take chances on non-white actors, aside from Eddie Murphy or Jackie Chan. I mean, would other white people really be that reluctant to see a black or Asian actor playing the main role?

Well, find the right films and you will find plenty of non-white actors. Why are people always so hung up about the race of the actors and not the content of the film?

Shinto-Male continues his racist attack on the proud Alascien, Gypsy, Walloon, Corsican, Traveller, Metis, Breton, Basque, and other such people. Shinto-Male, in his own admission is a Canadian, so it is clear why he would hate the Metis, seeing as his government had tried its best to destroy those proud people, along with what they call 'First Nations' and we call 'Amerindians', but his utter contempt for the others is inexplicable. We demand Shinto-Male address everyone here why he continues to ignore the plight of these people in favour of his preferred ethnic groups. Does he say that 'they are all white anyways'- that is as contemptible as someone grouping Chinese, Japanese, and Iranians into 'they are all Yellow anyways'. The only possible explanation is his unreasonable hatred and racism against these people, and we demand that either he acknowledge his hypocrisy, and rectify it, or else close this racist thread altogether.

I, in my capacity as a Chinese, can say that this is not very 'Yellow-face', in that they do not colour their faces yellow, perceptibly squint their eyes, nor are their mannerism stereotypical affectation of the Chinoiserie, indeed, I applaud them for getting their period dress correct, where others are absolutely mistaken, combining Tang-Era clothing, Ming-era clothing, and Manchu clothing into one 'Chinese', and, in this sense, are not particularly racist.

Secondly, that white people play Chinese parts do not seem any more racist than an all Japanese production of MacBeth or a all Chinese production of Cyrano de Bergerac.

Yet, this all seem to be ducking away from the question, why is Shinto-Male so particularly racist towards the aforementioned groups?

You have me there.

So, I propose an action/horror/chick flick, in which the black woman gets eaten by zombies first.

sheltered white kids who grew up in segregate sheltered neigbourhoods who never met a mexican decide to put on a racist party






A Penn State sorority is under investigation after an offensive photo of its members at a Mexican-themed party was posted online.
Clad in sombreros and ponchos, the young women, from the Nu Gamma chapter of Chi Omega, wear fake mustaches, some carrying signs that say, “Will mow lawn for weed and beer,” and, “I don’t cut grass, I smoke it.”
“This photo has been brought to our attention and we are looking into the issue,” Lisa Powers, the director of public information for the university, told the Daily News.
“While these individuals are within their First Amendment rights to express themselves in this way, we are appalled that they would display this level of insensitivity,” Powers said.
“These costumes and this group do not represent fraternity and sorority life at Penn State, nor the 95,000 students who attend our University.”
Student affairs employees have been in touch with the Chi Omega’s national headquarters, she said.
The sorority is working on “educational directives” for the students in the photo, Chi Omega Fraternity Director of Communications Whitney Heckathorne told the Daily News.
“Chi Omega believes that dignity, self-esteem, and respect are inalienable rights of each individual and neither endorses nor condones behavior that violates our organization’s policy on human dignity or the basic tenets of our Sisterhood,” Heckathorne said. “The Fraternity believes that personal degradation has no place in our organization, even if such behavior is meant facetiously or in jest.”
Jessica Ricardi, the president of the Nu Gamma chapter of Chi Omega, apologized in a statement to the school’s newspaper, The Daily Collegian.
“Our chapter of Chi Omega sincerely apologizes for portraying inappropriate and untrue stereotypes,” Ricardi said. “The picture in question does not support any of Chi Omega’s values or reflect what the organization aspires to be.”

It is truly horrifying that we live in an information age, yet there are still so many stupid racists walking amoung us. Whether they have preconceived notions about black people, white people, hispanics, latinos or asians, its all just stupidity at this point. We cant really call it ignorance anymore because there is way too much information out there for people to still be ignorant to other cultures and peoples. It just makes me sick to my stomach.
