Another question, when black people try to act white. are they acting white or just educated and civil???
Preach it brother. I remember bringing a point up in my American Government class in the topic of discrimination, specifically minority scholarships. How is saying you must be this particular color of skin to be applicable to ANYTHING equal treatment.TheSollyLama said:I doubt I'll bother seeing this one. I agree that if the races were reversed, jesse jackson, sharpton, the NAACP, the ACLU, the Southern Poverty yahoos, ALL would be throwing massive hissy fits and denouncing anyone that saw it as a de facto klansman. They'd boycott the theaters and studios until someone cashed in a few million in lawsuits. Then go on to tell us how evil all white people are for even thinking of such a movie.
But it's okay when the roles are reversed.
Not even that I'd be offended by the film. I've got a thicker skin than that. But the double standard is so painfully blatant, I just can't see myself actually supporting it with my money. I wouldn't go to a racist movie if white folks made it, I sure ain't going to one black people made.
Well, they made a film making fun of the stereotypical type of dumb high society white bread girls. They're probably ditsy, go out shopping a lot, yak on the phone, real prissy, sluts?, etc.RSixxygrl said:c'mon guys lighten up a bit....just watch it when it comes out on DVD...it's not the regular white girl they make fun of--it's the stereotypical type of dumb high society white bread girls.

How about we make a movie about the stereotypical black female, thats fair right? I wasnt sure if my idea of a stereotypical black female was right on, so looking at an artical at tolerance.org of a black female protesting how she feels she is categorized. I'd say a movie with a comedian like Jim Carey as a loud mouth, lower class, multiple children out of wedlock with no father, on welfare, quick to use plenty of profanity black female would pretty much outrage black women. Now what makes this "white chicks" movie not equally as offensive?
