The problem with this sort of analysis from people with an agenda is that if these people who claim something was not only white washed and also sexist. Why are they also not sticking up for the alien life in the film as well?
Probably because there are no aliens living in our society ( that we know of)
The problem that these people with a political agenda fail to realise is the world was a different place in the 70’s and a country such as the USA did not have such a diverse population as it does now.
You are kidding, right? If not, then maybe you should stop basing your facts on TV and film of the era. America wasnt as white and male as you think it was.
That was actually to highlight the how silly it is becoming. How far will it go… i do bring it back with some good points at the end.
No, you really didn’t. Not when you ended it with this rubbish…
The people that moan about these sorts of things fail to understand that it is far better to have the best actor or actress and that is bankable in a measure of success than to simply diversify something for the sake of it… If American money is making the film why can’t they just have americans in it?
It’s not like South Korea or bollywood films feel the need to stuff random white people in to their films for the sake of it. Why don’t these same people campaign for equality in films made abroad? So why should American films pander to these out cry’s by political agenda groups when the peoole who claim to be fighting for equality are in no way calling any other film industries out in other countries…
So yeah that is the hypocracy of it all.
Yeh, it’s pretty obvious where all this is coming from. Very thinly veiled…
If you are refusing to see a film because there are people wanting more diversity, in a world where white males still hold all the cards, then the problem is not with their “agenda” but with yourself. The same type of rubbish you wrote above was spoken many years ago, by those complaining that there are too many people demanding certain rights to people of colour and how there are more people of colour appearing and starring in film and TV just because of their “agenda”. And the same that complained about women on TV no longer being just the “eye candy/ damsel in distress”
It’s the same box, wrapped in different paper.
