All criminal's are white


Just noticed when rewatching this that all the criminals (Russians, Irish, dirty cops and armed robber) are all white. The PC brigade would go nuts if there was a movie of some white saint going around killing a bunch of black criminal's and cops.

That's because pointing out the fact that blacks are disproportionately more likely to commit crimes than whites is apparently racist. That's right, reality is now racist.

reply

Uh, no.

It's because it takes place in Boston, where the organized crime is mostly Irish or Russian. How many black Paddys do you know?

You *beep* should avoid all movies subsequent to "Birth of a Nation."

"beep" = dipsh--s

Some people are not PC. Myself, I'm a proud deplorable.

reply

Dont get me wrong but how many black russians do you know, or black guys working for russians mafia.

reply

to the OP; the PC brigade are the ones who count how many people in the movie are black and white, as you did.

If you people could read you wouldn't get so upset. I clearly said "after rewatching the movie" I had seen it a few times and not noticed until the last time and it doesn't particularly bother me. It was just the old stereotypes that black guys would always be criminals in movies yet this movie has several different criminal groups who all happen to be white and the good guy is black with a Hispanic side kick.

You sound just terribly oppressed. It must be so hard being a white guy. So difficult. You should get an award for how awesomely you're handling the adversity.

Or my isn't name...

reply

I don't know of many Black Russians, or Black Irish for that matter.
The Criminals were Mobbsters.

reply

You would have a point if those two where the only criminal groups but I listed 4. It's funny how upset some people have got over this post, it's not big deal it's just funny it's the opposite of the stereotype films are accused of having.

reply

So I guess the Death Wish movies didn't exist huh?

reply

Never heard of them and they have absolutely nothing to do with this movie.

reply

I can´t think of any movie made in 21st century with black bad guys.
