The 'Black Problem' in Television

Original Article

Posted By: mc squared, 10/22/2020 12:13:28 PM

It was recently reported that Patrissa Cullors, a founding woman of Black Lives Matter, was signed by Warner Brothers to a multiyear deal across all of its programming platforms that “encompasses scripted and unscripted series, longform series, animated and kids programming, as well as digital content.” In a statement released by Cullors after the signing, she mentioned that a reason for celebration is that “Black voices, especially Black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling.” Historically, yes. Contemporarily, no. (This begs the question: Why are most examples of oppression from the past?)

Comments:

If I had just landed from Mars and turned on an earth tele-viewer, I would think whites were an oppressed minority blundering through life like idiot children. Particularly men.

OP, exactly. We now watch black television where all the power figures in offices, police departments, whatever, are black. The commercials are intended for only black people, and pretty affluent ones at that - showing them enjoying very large homes with decorator interiors, luxury cars, the works. They have overdone it. I wonder how the Asians and Hispanics feel about being featured as marital or whatever partners of blacks, children in ridiculously mixed families, and other distorted versions of what our society really looks like. In our communities - for eons - blacks and Hispanics were mortal enemies, and Asians kept strictly to themselves. Living in a fairly mixed area for all my life, I have never seen an Asian male or female with a black partner. When will those who pay very big bucks for ad production and placement, not to mention residuals to the performers whenever the ads air, realize that they’ve gotten roped into a losing proposition? We’re not boycotting them. We’re just ignoring them.

The ''black problem'' is on the streets, known as BLM!

#1 - excellent post. 'ridiculously mixed families ..." is an great way of describing the complete fantasy of family life as is now portrayed on ABCNBCCBS et al. It is so far removed from real life that even my ultra-liberal BIL refers to it as NBNTV - Nothing But Negro TV. I was floored when I hears him utter that! To that end I simply change the channel when I notice something completely insane. Nature shows rarely mention the race of the animals being discussed. Better yet, turn off the TV and get some exercise.

Years ago I was in a bookstore in a now defunct shopping mall in downtown St. Louis. There was a large wall of black themed books, I was a little or a lot familiar with many. The display was a monument to myths and lies. Little has changed since then.

Are authors going to tolerate having their works rewritten by BLM? I suspect Cullors is not a very good storyteller, and has not market following.

Projecting falsehoods does not make it true. Entertainment is becoming cultural distortion to achieve new "norms". Normal people are turning away from it.

This has also leaked over into print magazines. I receive many free magazines each month, only good for throne reading, and almost every article In them pertains to blacks. And every ad contains black people and black models. If I had kinky black hair, I would be a pro at styling it from all the tips in the fashion mags. All the makeup ads are directed at darker skinned people, too.

This nothing more than 'feeding the alligator hoping he'll eat you last'. I also have noticed distinct trends, especially in advertising mentioned here and elsewhere. It's being done in the hopes that, no matter what happens, the advertisers and agencies producing these ads can point and say - 'See, we're not racist' That is ALL this is !!

I notice the commercials over the last few years getting more and more unrealistic.....mixed couples, even a gay couple. Every party even, indoor or outdoor has a black couple or two mixed in with the white crowd. I don't really care but it's become silly. I have a couple of black acquaintances but my wife and I don't go to their parties and they don't come to ours. This is simply the fact that most people associate with people of their own race and social class.. It's been that way for millennia. Both blacks and whites gather with people like ourselves and always will. You do see from time to time attempts by whites to invite a black or blacks to attend an event but it's almost always to virtue signal and get attention as "look at us, we invited a black couple to our pool party. I would say that my wife and I are pretty solidly middle class and can't run with the wealthy elites but we don't mix with white meth-smoking trailer trash either.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says.
