One of the most racist movies of all time


In these sensitive times I am surprised how no one picked up on this movie being pretty racially insensitive. Towards whites. Now I know there is a lot of racism in the world and in USA and a lot of it is racism against African Americans. However this movie goes into another extreme, not a single white character in the movie is positive and every white character with more than 5 min screen time is a monster trying to steal black people. On the other hand the only normal characters in the movie are African Americans who are either heroes or victims or both. Now lets say I make a movie about a white family ending up in the hood and every black character there is trying to steal their body, kill or whatever and the only normal characters are other white people. Eh, you get the point. This movie is not bad because it is racist, it is actually a really good piece of cinema and I like it but it is pretty racist.

White people are not oppressed. Racism towards white people is not a thing.

I mean in general black people are more opressed in USA because they are a minority. That doesn't mean there is no racism the other way around. This movie is racist because it entices fear against the white people and plays on the already existing fear the black community has. Fear is the number one cause of racism because fear leads to hate, fear is the reason white cops will be trigger happy when they see a black dude in the hood. It is 90 percent of the time because they are afraid and 1 percent of the time out of hate. Fear is also the reason black dude will be aggressive against police and white people in general, he is afraid. That leads to conflict. In any case racist is racist, it is a prejudice against another race and belief only your race is the good one and there are plenty of racist black people, this movie is a nice example of being racist.

Actually it's the opposite. White people are much (but MUCH) more oppressed in black countries than black people in western countries.

reply

Uhh WHAT? Examples please.

reply

Exactly.
... Uhh WHAT?

reply

Depending on the country, it's a potentially valid concern though it's a rather sweeping statement. An example that is often rolled out is the South African Farm attacks and murders.

WOWOWOW

WOW

GO back to sleep.

reply

Black people aren't oppressed either, haven't been for some time. And yes, racism towards whites is happening right now. There is most certainly an attack on whites and white culture.

reply

I repeat. White people are not oppressed.

There can be individual acts of prejudice against a white person, but racism is a systemic institution of oppression against BIPOC.

Also, there is no attack on whites or 'white' culture (whatever that is)....

It is not black vs white.

It is racist vs literally everyone else.

If you feel attacked, I have some news for you......

reply

I GUESS YOU NEVER HEARD OF JEWISH PEOPLE🙄

reply

Racism is not a systemic opression like you define it, that would be systemic racism. There is also being individually racist. Racism is like I said belief other races are inferior or bad and that yours is superior or good.

reply

Are you suggesting there is no such thing as black culture, because blacks use that term constantly. It makes sense that there would also be white culture. These are the blatant hypocrisy in people's mindsets like you that proves exactly what I just said. Thanks for playing Karen.

reply

White people are generally treated like garbage.

reply

"I repeat. White people are not oppressed."
Blanket statement offered without evidence can be just as easily discarded without evidence too.

"There can be individual acts of prejudice against a white person, but racism is a systemic institution of oppression against BIPOC."
No it's not. There, I countered your claim with the same evidence you provided to support it ie fuck all

"Also, there is no attack on whites or 'white' culture (whatever that is)...."
Sounds like something an abuser would say as they were abusing someone.

"It is not black vs white."
No it's BAME vs white apparently, the left love to homogenise minorities when it's advantageous.

"It is racist vs literally everyone else."
Beautiful Dubya/Anakin Skywalker level logic on display right here. "If you're not with me you're my enemy!" Simpleton reasoning.

"If you feel attacked, I have some news for you......"
I know what that news is, it's that your attacking me while telling me it's not happening, typical gaslighting behaviour from loathesome racists

reply

well i guess there is no racism towards blacks either since they are not oppressed either. in fact they are put on a pedestal with affirmative actions and other bullshit so there can be no racism towards tehm

reply

It's acceptable, and even encouraged, to be racist towards white people.

reply

you sounds like an sjw warrior expect ur defending white people instead of afro muricans. white people are not sensitive crybabies we dont need anyone crying sjw politics to protect our asses. we can help ourselves just fine

reply

I am calling a racist movie a racist movie.

reply

who cares if it is racist? some of the most funny best movies happen to be racist and unpolitically correct

reply

I care. It is a double standard, if a white made a movie like this about blacks he wouldnt get an oscar, his movie would be banned.

reply

A white family going to the hood and having black people steal their bodies sounds pretty cool, actually. Sounds like a Wayans Bros parody or something. I would root for the white family to escape just like I was rooting for the black people to escape in this movie.

reply

If it was done as a parody it could be a fun movie. If it was done in a serious manner the way Jordan did this movie it would leave a bad taste in my mouth. The bad taste of painting an entire race as evil and fearmongering.

reply

these times are only sensitive to people like you and those you call sensitive. I'm pretty Liberal but I'm not Politically Correct and will call out Black, Hispanic, Jew and White people who try to front a fake position in order to disguise their own bigotry.

reply

Are you accusing me of something? I am a Jordan Peele fan but this movie is racist as fuck and paints all white people as monsters. I am not sjw.

reply

It's just a movie that postulates a racist society, so in essence it reflects the premise. You don't like stories like that? Tough shit

reply

Please speak english so I can understand you. You think this movie is a realistic reflection of the society? You think white people are realistically portrayed?

reply

He is saying the movie is about racist white people. Not that all white people are racist. It's a movie with fictional characters, fic-tion-al characters.

reply

But in the movie every white person is racist. Therefore the film has a message that all white people are racist.

reply

It's set in a small community of like minded people.

reply

There were side characters, director made it a point that every white character was racist

reply

there's nothing racist about this movie, the op is insecure and a complete loser who is bitching because he has a guilty conscience.

reply

You complain about racism, then call someone a nigger.

reply

I said niggas. It is only racist if you put the r there.

reply

Sound logic.

reply

blocked and didn't read faggot

reply

I haven't seen the movie yet, please don't spoil it for me. I do think the title makes for a good message to DJT. Maybe someone should do a screening of the movie across the front of the White House.

reply

It is a black version of a nazi propaganda where all the white characters are evil and all the black characters are good.

reply

So that's your idea of not spoiling it? Boy, am I glad I didn't ask you to spoil it for me!

reply

I didnt give away any plot points, you can still enjoy it as it is really well made psychological horor.

reply

I prefer to go into movies fresh.

reply

If you "prefer to go into movies fresh" why would you come into discussion about a movie you haven't seen yet?

reply

Split personality?

reply

WOW, THIS IS A NASTY THREAD ! I"M STUNNED WHAT I'M SEEING HERE !

reply

Well, if you can't handle it, don't come on here. Not being snarky, just saying. But the film is racist.

reply

Its director is racist -- said he would not hire a white lead.
