Am I the only one who remembers what Hollywood did to Tom Clancy’s The Sum of All Fears? Clancy wrote a 1991 Cold War thriller that portrayed a terrorist collaboration between an East German nuclear physicist and Palestinian radicals. However, by the time it emerged as a movie in 2002, the cinematic arbiters of political correctness had changed the bad guys into “a South African arms dealer” and “a secretive far-right cabal seeking to impose a white supremacist world order, led by Austrian billionaire and neo-Nazi Richard Dressler” whose plan is “to transform Europe into a united fascist superstate.” Yeah, because there’s no way anyone would buy tickets to a movie in which Palestinian radicals engaged in a terrorist plot. Too much like real life. That P.C. Hollywood reversal came to mind when I read this at AOSHQ:I'm sure, somewhere in the country, a white dude or two is pimping a black women, but like most of the crime in the US, and murder in particular, it is probably mostly within the poor community which tend relegated to minorities, and de facto segregated if not segregated legally.
In a new Project Greenlight, Damon argued with a black woman about the need of a Director of Color (is that a thing?) for their movie, based upon the fact that in one scene a black prostitute is slapped by a white pimp. Given that single incident, she called for a black director, or a team of a female director and black one, to make sure the nameless prostitute was invested with dignity and something something Oprah Winfrey’s book club.You can read the whole thing. Damon was forced to apologize, and this is just another controversy over “representation” (which is to say, tokenism and quotas) in Hollywood, but perhaps I’m not the only one who noticed this:
Well, Matt Damon, who is a goonish, thuggish leftist when it comes to imposing SJW crap on other people, actually began lecturing her that she was wrong.
This is, as you know, a crime; a white person can never contradict a black person in Obama’s America.
Uhhh, how do I say this? Without sounding like a racist, I mean.
Maybe I’m not an expert on the demographics of the prostitution industry, but do a lot of black prostitutes have white pimps?
I love me some red on red feuds. It's the only way we'll ever get past the current PC crisis is if the media moguls (and Matt Damon is one) are made to feel the pain.
