I would disagree that I was using any profanity, or that the first of my post contained any insult.

KKKuentin Tarantino planning his latest n-word filled racist movie. only in racist hollywood where he can make movie using the anti-black racist n-word and have whitewashed sellouts defending him.



didn't George Lucas made a movie about black WW2 soldiers and had to use his own money because the racist assholes in hollywood don't support it? they wouldn't financed Lucas b but have no problem funding and supporting KKKuentin and his fellow sellout slaves that allow him to call them the n-word in their faces.



‘Killer Crow’: Tarantino’s next film may be thriller about black WWII soldiers

Fans of Quentin Tarantino’s last two films, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained, should be excited about the director’s next potential project.

In an interview with The Root, the outspoken auteur said he is considering a spin-off of Basterds called Killer Crow about a regiment of black World War II soldiers seeking vengeance after being wronged by their commanding officers.

“I don’t know exactly when I’m going to do it, but there’s something about this that would suggest a trilogy,” said Tarantino.

“My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been f**ked over by the American military and kind of go apesh*t. They basically — the way Lt. Aldo Raines (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an ‘Apache resistance’ — [the] black troops go on an Apache warpath and kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland.”

According to Tarantino, the script is “ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it.”

Quentin Tarantino is not a racist simply because his films uses the n-word quite a bit. Let's look through his film,

Pulp Fiction- one of the protagonist is a character played by Samuel L. Jackson, who is protrayed as both 'cool' and sympathetic.

Jackie Brown is a hommage to Blaxploitation films, which has an almost entirely black cast, and would, realistically, use that word amongst each other.

Kill Bill- the movie itself seemed more or less a hommage to Japanese Jidai-Geki films, Chinese Kung-fu films, amongst other influences, reworked creatively. I doubt a Racist would have even thought to borrow from 'inferior races'.

Quentin Tarantino simply uses the word both for artistic purposes and aesthetic purposes, and the African American cast, which he is fond of using, and which has yet to complain of any racism on his part, is willing to allow him to use that word because of this greater artiistic purpose. I may not admire his films (mostly because they seem more or less anarchic violence, though many people would violent disagree, and probably for good reasons), but I do not begrudge him for using the n-word, simply because he has a broader artistic vision for using that word, rather than use it to be a mean ol' white racist.

Hollywood doesn't think about how to be evil and racist when financing a film- they base their decision on how they think it will sell. And they were right- critics generally gave it a negative review mostly because of the superficiality of the character and the dialogues. It was not a great film, it had honourable intention, it may not be entirely historically accurate, but it was not a good film.

Don't see any racism in this, in fact, it just looks like a black remake of Inglourious Basterds-- only replace Jews with Black folks, and Racist Nazis with Racist Americans, which probably preaches instead, an anti-racist message, as in, don't treat people like crap- especially not because of their ethnicity, otherwise, they may go into a killing spree- in fact, that is probably a stylistic feature he has taken from the Japanese and Chinese honour revenge films- you were dishonoured, you murder and kill all the people that dishonoured you. In fact, this is redolent of the famed Chinese novel 'Shuihu Zhuang' or, in English, the Water Margin/Outlaw of the Marshes. It is obvious that the black soldiers are supposed to be the hero, or at least the people we are supposed to sympathise with.

The accusation of racism, and the constant deformation of Quentin Tarantino's name does not prove anything.

I dont look at QT as racist just because his movies show how people are/were in real life. You wouldnt call the actors racist for playing the roles now, would you? I dont hear anyone calling out Alex Haley for having white people call black people the "n word" on film but im sure most dont even know who the hell Alex Haley is... Some people just need to get off their soapbox on this racist nonsense because theyre no better than racists themselves. They arent helping to solve a damn thing.

When you walk around with racist shades on all the time, you tend to see racism in everything, everywhere...

Attempting the Impossible: why does western cinema whitewash Asian stories?


Spoiler alert: some plot details are revealed below

The Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 killed at least 227,898 people. Around a third of these were children. The economy of coastal south-east Asia was devastated, with the loss in some places of two thirds of the boats on which fisherfolk depended. The environment was irreversibly defiled. Since many of the bodies were never found, psychological trauma was compounded by the tradition in many of the areas affected that the dead must always be buried by a family member.

Scope here for drama you might have thought. Yet The Impossible, like Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter before it, concentrates not on the plight of the indigenous victims but on the less harrowing experiences of privileged white visitors. The film’s winsomely western family, headed by Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, experience little more than separation anxiety and survivable injury before jetting safely homewards.

This scenario has provoked outrage, not least on this site. The New York Times found the film “less an examination of mass destruction than the tale of a spoiled holiday”. Still, the indicted parties have alibis to hand.

According to Watts, “Fifty per cent of the people that died in Thailand were tourists.” Good try, but perhaps a little disingenuous. Holiday paradise Thailand, with its 5,400 deaths, was actually at the margins of the tragedy. Indonesia alone suffered 130,700 deaths, largely of low-income Acehnese people; the figure for the UK, whence The Impossible‘s family appears to hail, is 149.

McGregor has filed a different defence. “Naomi’s character is saved by a Thai man, and taken to safety in a Thai village where the Thai women dress her … In the hospital they’re all Thai nurses and Thai doctors – you see nothing but Thai people saving lives and helping.” Does this make matters worse? Those who are protesting don’t want to see non-whites patronised with background roles as saintly ciphers; they want them to play mainstream parts as three-dimensional protagonists in what is, after all, their story.

As it happens, The Impossible’s director, Juan Antonio Bayona, was inspired by the tale of a real-life family. However, this family was Spanish, not British. So, it seems, even Catalan people like the woman Watts actually plays aren’t considered mainstream enough, even for what is a wholly European film.

Still, few who have spent much time in cinemas will be surprised. Ever since the medium emerged into an era of cheery racism, the movies have appeared to like their heroes to be white. In 1915, The Birth of a Nation celebrated America’s reconstruction after the Civil War with African-Americans played by white actors in blackface, together with a sympathetic attitude to the Ku Klux Klan.

Now, of course, social attitudes have changed, and most of the time film-makers inhabit the vanguard of the progressive class. Yet white saviours continue to pop up in films such as Dances with Wolves, The Blind Side, Avatar and The Help. You can’t imagine an Oscar-winner like The Hurt Locker promoting Iraqi rather than American derring-do. Even children’s animations and, more weirdly, fantasy require Caucasians in their primary roles.

Producers have justified this approach with the claim that audiences won’t tolerate non-white characters or actors in dominant roles. Is this just a cowardly failure on their part to recognise the maturity of contemporary filmgoers? Apparently not. Last year an Indiana University study confronted 68 white college students with a variety of synopses accompanied by casts of varying ethnicity. “The higher the percentage of black actors in the movie, the less interested white participants were in seeing the movie,” said the report. “Importantly, this effect occurred regardless of participants’ racial attitudes or actors’ relative celebrity.”

The success of Will Smith, Morgan Freeman, Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington and Halle Berry shouldn’t be exaggerated. A few genuinely mixed-race movies, such as the Fast Furious franchise, have broken through. Yet in 2010, non-white actors took leading roles in only two of America’s 30 top-grossing films. Studios remain convinced that the audiences of middle America just won’t identify with non-white characters.

So far, so familiar. Yet since that approach was forged, the movie business has been transformed. Once, Hollywood made films for the home market and regarded any overseas earnings as a bonus. That’s no longer the case: big films are now global products earning most of their money outside the US. The prejudices of middle America (whose own makeup is changing fast) are no longer overwhelmingly important, and the suits know it. .

So, studios are falling over themselves to reorient their activities. There’s a scramble to co-produce with the Chinese. A major children’s movie, such as Rio, gets to be set in Brazil. Yet here’s a puzzle. The great wide world at which films such as The Impossible are now aimed is only 17% white. Nonetheless, the predominance of white characters among their protagonists seems hardly to have fallen.

The title of Captain America: The First Avenger was changed in some territories in deference to local sensibilities, but the captain himself was allowed to fight on, along with his equally white super-hero colleagues, British agent James Bond, Twilight’s milky-skinned vampires, the little-Englander Hobbit and the rest.

Those who object to films such as The Impossible sometimes speak as if they suspect a plot by western film-makers to re-colonise the world through cultural imperialism. In fact, in movie circles, it’s money, not ideological ambition, that talks. The plain fact is that much of the world seems to have no objection to the chalky faces of the screen heroes with which it’s presented.

Captain America earned more overseas than it did in the captain’s homeland. Now Les Misérables has opened with impressive figures in Japan, The Hobbit is doing well in Mexico and Brazil, while Skyfall has pulled in $16m in South Korea. Meanwhile, Bollywood may make more films than Hollywood, but it shows no sign of gaining global traction. China may be pouring money into its film industry, yet it’s doing no better beyond its borders. Instead, both India and China are hiring more and more western actors.

Not until this picture changes do white people look likely to vacate their throne on the silver screen.

‘White Privilege’ lesson in Wisconsin high school draws national attention

National attention has been drawn to a Wisconsin high school’s “American Diversity” course after one parent alleged that students are being taught white people are oppressors of minorities, reports Fox News.

One parent of a Delavan-Darien High School student spoke to Fox News.

“They’re teaching white guilt. They’re dividing the students,” this parent told said. ”They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’”

The parent, who requested to remain anonymous, claims she became alarmed by the content on some handouts that her 18-year-old son brought home from school.

A class handout defines “white privilege” as:

A set of advantages that are believed to be enjoyed by white people beyond those commonly experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, and economic spaces (nation, community, workplace, income, etc.)

Students were also instructed to visit the toy section of a local Wal-Mart, where they were to count the number of white dolls versus the number of black dolls.

School district superintendent, Robert Crist told Fox that “a lot of red flags go u in my mind when I look at the materials. Her concern has merit.”

“Ideally, you would want to present one theory that might be way on the left and another theory that may be way on the right and if you find one in the middle you can present that, too,” he continued. “Now you have a well-rounded discussion in my opinion.”

Crist noted that the course has been suspended, while it is under review.
