Racism

Tales from the Hood (REVIEW)

Since the election of President Obama, a lot of people have seemingly been ready to declare racism dead and announce that we now live in a “post-racial” America. Despite the fact that we now have an African-American President, there’s a pretty alarming rise in public displays of racism in America today. In fact, just this weekend I witnessed two pretty alarming outbursts directed at minorities while out and about. It was disgusting and pretty shocking to witness something like that, yet alone during the Holiday season.

White Dog (REVIEW)

When director Samuel Fuller was wrapping up filming on “White Dog” in 1982, Paramount Pictures became concerned that the film could offend black audiences and sent two consultants to review the film. One of the consultants considered the film inflammatory and offensive and two weeks before the end of filming Fuller was given a list of changes to be made to the movie. In the end, Paramount chose not to give the film an American theatrical release. It wouldn’t receive an official release until 2008, when the Criterion Collection released a special edition DVD of the film. Insulted by the experience, Fuller, one of the most acclaimed genre directors of the 20th century, moved to France and never made another American film.

Video: It's Time to Get "Ugly" - Again!

On October 6th, the animated hit on Comedy Central is returning for another hilarious season of demons, vampires, zombies & other assorted freaks to poke fun immigration policies and paranoia.

If you’re familiar with the show from last season, you’ll recognize all the Department of Integration characters: Mark - the idealistic social worker; Randal - his roommate who turned himself into a zombie for the sole reason of impressing a girl, and Mark’s demon succubus boss & girlfriend, Callie (My fiance mentions she & I have have uncanny similarities. I’m sure he means my wit, otherwise I’ll tear his arms off.). The cast also includes Leonard Powers- an old, drunk & timid wizard; Twayne - a intimidating demonic bureaucrat (aren't they all? HAR HAR HAR!), and Lt Grimes, a law enforcement official who hates non humans.
