S&A 2013 Highlights: Why White People Don't Like Black Movies

Editor's note: As 2014 begins, I've been reposting some of our 2013 highlights. Those who've already read each one can obviously skip them, or revisit if you'd like. For those who joined us later in the year, missing many of these posts from earlier in the year, they will probably be new items. Here's a piece originally published in July that's caused quite a stir, and is still drawing the occasional comment today. Happy New Year to you all! 

To get to the short explanation of this loaded assertion I have to narrowly define what I mean by “Black” movies.  Black movies are those films with a majority Black cast that situate Whites, if any, in peripheral or non-influential roles.  No matter what the genre and no matter what the race of the director, these kinds of Black films, we are told, form a niche market within the broader domestic U.S. market and are but a tiny fraction of the Global film marketplace.  Now that I’ve established this narrow definition we can explore a brief series of questions beginning with the assertion that is the title of this piece.

Why White people don’t like Black movies.

A vast majority of White people don’t like Black movies because they lack the empathy necessary to identify with Black characters which in turn affects their ability to “suspend disbelief” and surrender to the narrative of a Black film.  What has been called the Racial Empathy Gap in various sociological studies conducted by researchers at the University of Milano-Bicocca and the University of Toronto Scarborough have revealed that,” The human brain fires differently when dealing with people outside of one’s own race.”(1)  This study found that the degree of mental activity when White participants watched non-White men performing a task was significantly lower than when they watched people of their own race performing the same task. “In other words people were less likely to mentally simulate the actions of other-race than same-race people.” (2)

When we watch a film we are watching images of people doing tasks in the pursuit of a goal to change a circumstance and it stands to reason that if the threshold of empathy in Whites is higher when watching non-Whites perform certain tasks because of the Racial Empathy Gap, then if the Whites are watching a Black film such a high empathy threshold would make the suspension of disbelief difficult and attenuate the pleasure of their viewing experience.

But it is often difficult to transpose such highly controlled academic research into a diverse cultural enterprise such as the cinema, so I offer here my own anecdotal evidence that would seem to confirm how the Racial Empathy Gap negatively impairs the ability of Whites to be entertained by a Black film.

In January of 2011 the Wayne State University Media Arts and Communication department hosted a special event with Academy Award winning Asian-American Editor Richard Chew (Star Wars IV: A New Hope-1977, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest- 1975, Waiting to Exhale- 1995) at the esteemed Detroit Film Theatre.  There was an on stage interview with the acclaimed editor with clips from the various films he had worked on throughout his career. He amused the audience with juicy tidbits of behind the scenes encounters with various movie stars and directors of whom the audience was familiar.

The event also included a full screening of the groundbreaking 1964 film NOTHIN’ BUT A MAN (Michael Roemer) which Chew credited as a major inspiration for getting him involved in the film industry since he was in law school when he saw it and started his career soon after.

This Black film starring Ivan Dixon and Abbey Lincoln which has a story that can be understood as an important harbinger of the Civil Rights Movement was playing to a packed house that night: ¾ White and ¼ Black.  Yet I noticed and couldn’t help but to keep track of the fact that 10 minutes after the house lights went off and the film started many Whites began discreetly heading towards the exits.  Two by two, White couples and individuals continued to leave the screening as the film was on, until by the film’s end only the Blacks and a handful of Whites remained.  I was stunned because I assumed that the older White couples in attendance, who would have been young adults during the Sixties, surely could empathize with the Civil Rights issues dramatized with the film, but the emptying out of the theatre would seem to confirm that some Whites –no matter how tolerant- are unwilling or unable to overcome their Racial Empathy Gap and watch a dramatic film with a majority Black cast.

Specifically, a film whose story does not show Blacks interacting with Whites in servitude, deference, or emotional dependence.  In other words, when the fictional world within the film is exclusively under Black control and influence, as was the case with NOTHIN’ BUT A MAN, many Whites snuck out during the screening, if they dared go see it at all.

The effects of such a Racial Empathy Gap may not negatively influence all Whites when they are viewing a Black film as was evidenced by those Whites who stayed through the entire screening, but it would seem to have had a strong negative influence upon a large number of Whites who had attended the event.

Now of course the Racial Empathy Gap does not directly correlate to a racist attitude or mentality, but it would seem to suggest that there is a certain comfort level experienced with one’s own race that extends to the attention one gives and the pleasure one receives from watching a narrative film.  As film scholar Anna Everett has mentioned Whites don’t take notice when there are no minorities or Blacks in a film, but Blacks do.  “Even if Whites recognize the exclusion it will have different meanings for them.” (3)  Conversely, Whites do seem to take notice when there are no Whites in a film and, it would seem, respond by leaving the theatre or not going to the see the film at all.

Another anecdotal example concerning Whites dislike of Black films is found in the negative comments thrown at Irish director Bill Sheridan for making GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN’ (2005): He says,” Everybody keeps saying,’ You know, you made a black movie.’ And I keep saying,’ No, I made a movie . . . I made the same movie if I were making it in Dublin or London or anywhere.’ I didn’t approach it like its special. I’m used to Belfast. It’s the same.”(Slave Cinema, 35) Now we can assume with a reasonable degree of certainty that the “They” being referred to were White critics and industry insiders whose comments seemed to be specifically targeted at Jim Sheridan for making one of “those” movies; Black movies that they don’t really want to experience.

Before addressing the deleterious consequences of the Racial Empathy Gap on Black cinema as a whole it would be prudent to ask a question from the assertion with which we began in the opposite context.

    I can tell you that what turns off many whites about watching black movies is often and deliberately being made victims of abusive jokes and references. No race likes that but if its a documentary there is a time and a place for historical reference and some mud-slinging is expected. Blacks often irritate whites deliberately though in comedy, music and cinema. That is not the extent of what their culture has to offer and the get-even-with-whitey stuff can really be insulting especially when many whites have gone out of their way to be open-minded and done many things to help blacks. A white person just going to a black event displays a willingness to be open-minded. To sit through obnoxious accusations alienates and that destroys feelings of empathy. Thus, its more than we are just different. I would dare say a white person in the united states will be more empathetic with a different black person from africa than a different black person from the united states when watching cinema because there is more open-mindedness when abuse is not as expected. Just some thoughts...

    I disagree that this is a "race" issue. This article classifies any film that has a significant white role as a white movie and limits the black movies to any film that whites are relegated to the background. By their definition, Blade is a white movie even though the main character is played by Wesley Snipes. This would also include nearly every Denzel Washington and Samuel L Jackson movie being categorized as white movies.

    So basically, the fact that these are all A list actors and white audiences love their movies is disregarded because the cast and story lines are presented to appeal to a broad audience.

    Whereas, movies that they consider "black movies" are specifically written to appeal to an urban culture that can directly relate to the story line and plot elements. I would say that white audiences were just as uncomfortable in general watching the movie 8 Mile as they are watching a "black" film in the same setting. It is culturally foreign and unappealing to the majority of people who did not grow up in that culture.

    To make it harder to watch, most of those same films imply white privilege and oppressiveness over black or at least carry a big racial chip against white people. This creates a hostile environment for the white audience members to trust the narration sufficiently to suspend disbelief.

    Oh ok, so the reason I dont like Medea goes to jail isn't because its a TERRIBLE TERRIBLE movie, It's because im a racist

  • Andre Seewood | July 15, 2014 2:53 PM

    No, but it could be said that you suffer from some degree of a lack of racial empathy because you believe that Medea goes to jail is somehow representative of all of contemporary Black cinema.

    I was reading a book called: 'They don't want us here' by Kevin Watson The writer went through arson attempt racism as white people could not empathise never mind live next door to a negro.

    Honest opinion: I am not white, but Asian-American. Asian-Americans are not very much represented in mainstream media, but a lot of us tend to follow "white" entertainment (like pop songs, action films, etc.) Personally, I admit to being one of the preps who loved Backstreet Boys and (teenage) Britney as a kid, and was never a huge fan of rap/hip-hop. I like Harry Potter and LOTR films, and cannot sit through a Tyler Perry film. I don't think whitewashed films are objectively better than Black films, but at the same time, I don't genuinely relate to or like a lot of Black culture. I think people should just like what they like, and try new things, but it shouldn't be held against me for not liking Black entertainment.

    There are certain black movies I like, and ones I don't. The ones that are all about naked girls, drugs and sex I don't like. Same with the few white movies that are like that, but anyone would be a liar if they tried to deny that most black movies are like that.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 28, 2014 8:01 PM

    @SALLYBOBO- SALLY, I think perhaps you have not actually seen many black movies in your' sheltered life. Only a very small percentage of them are about sex,drugs,and nudity, and most of them are comedies much like all the white comedies of the same type. You should watch the HBO series "True Blood". A sheltered one such as yourself would enjoy it.

  • Ancalagon | June 25, 2014 10:00 PMReply

    You miss one important fact. A lot of "Black" movies suck. The characters are broad and stereotypical and they have thinly developed plots. Tyler Perry movies are a prime example.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 26, 2014 1:19 AM

    @ ANCALAGON, Many movies suck. Putting the word black in your' reference to movies of poor quality only proves Andre's point, therefore you must be in agreement with him.

  • Andre Seewood | June 25, 2014 11:04 PM

    And you miss an even more important fact: your assertion that "a lot of Black movies suck," is itself a broad and stereotypical generalization that itself is derived from the circumstances this article investigates.

    In my humble uninformed opinion, I think that people all over the world like to watch things/movies/TV shows they can identify with and can see themselves in, or they can aspire to. And that's the reason that to me (mind you I'm uninformed) the future is interracial movies/TV shows where everybody gets a piece of their ego fulfilled.
    Most whites (IMO) do have a mild curiosity in black casting when it's multi-racial.

    Successful models:
    Scandal
    Grey's Anatomy
    Resurrection
    The Originals
    Shows who introduce race as a primary or repeated topic quickly lose their white audience and middle-class black audience.

    I am partially, maybe mostly responsible for turning this entertainment forum into a forum concerning racicm. I apologize, Andre. I simply was unable to find another forum online where my opinions would not be censored. AMISCUS, I think you may be brilliant for the way you have brought the topic back to what Andre intended it to be and covered racism outside of rhe entertainment genre simultaneously.

  • Amicus | June 21, 2014 4:34 PM

    One of the reality blacks need to be cognizant of is, that blacks are 44 million of a nation of 318 million Americans, so TV/movies will tend to represent the bare majority.
    Also, of that 44 million there is about 50% who are either young children or otherwise incapable or uninterested in TV watching or paying money for movies, so we are talking an advertiser demo of less than 20 million for TV an even much less for movie patronage.
    And so goes the reason there are limitations on black movies and TV shows - It's dollar green not race black.
    So, either in music, movie or TV, cross-over is needed to be a commercial success of some magnitude, so people who finance movies or advertisers will chase the larger population who happens to be much more affluent in disposable income. - It's about the numbers not the color.
    -------------
    My prediction is that bi-racial people/children will become extremely celebrated in movies and TV shows and by advertisers, but all black ensemble shows will not be so lucky.
    --
    Interracial couples on TV will become the norm both in commercials and on shows, and it won't because the Show-Runners/Directors/Casting Directors have a conscience, it will be because it's what will sell, it will even sell in those many American townships where black representation is less than 1% - and there are many, many places like that.
    --

    @Andre Seewood
    Scandal is a show with a a dominant black female lead, operating within America as it is now, in reality.
    Grey's Anatomy is a multi-color, multi-cultural show not dominated by color but by status and connection. It's an aspirational show.

  • Andre Seewood | June 21, 2014 3:13 PM

    Whereas I agree with your point,"... people all over the world like to Watch things/movies/TV shows they can identify with and can see themselves in, or they can aspire to," the expansion of this discussion into the realm of television with the various shows you cited would necessitate multiple changes in the argument put forth in the article. For one, in many of the shows you cite, the Black characters are in the service of Whites (i.e. Scandal) and thus I would contend that the presence of the Black characters in a show where Whites are in control of the circumstances is not as great a threat to the empathy thresholds of the White viewers as it would be in a two hour film where Whites have non-power oriented roles. Also, you have to consider the impact of television commercials which are mini-narratives in themselves (something that French director Jean-Luc Godard had mentioned to us decades ago) whose prepondance of characters are White and in control of the circumstances they represent and the products they are advertising. Not to mention news media and their representation of crime and race. My point here is that the inclusion of television media into this argument only expands our application of the thesis in such a way that the shows that appear progressive in casting often regress to the same racial hierarchies and tendencies of the narrative films because the effect of empathy is stretched over a long period of time (a 13 week television season as opposed to a two hour film), and the White characters of the multi-racial cast are in positions that represent power, wealth or higher class status. This is why many Black characters are "killed off" on many television series because after the initial ratings stablize the producers become secure that they have a White audience and thus the Black characters are expendable for dramatic effect. And even with the black shows we would have to factor in the effect of television commericals and television programs that are majority White cast as a means of retaining racial hierachies and making sure that if the Black show introduces,"...race as a primary or repeated topic," it can be cancelled and replaced with more normative fare. But even though you called your opinion "humble and uninformed" it nonetheless makes one think further. Thank you.

    Since this is a Black site, why don't you watch some of Dr. Farrakhan's youtube exposes on the control of the Jews in America. And read SECRET RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BLACKS & JEWS VOL I & VOL II. (Both available as a free pdf download on the internet)

    The Jews can't help but boast of their controlling accomplishments. Prime Minsters of Israel, Ariel Sharon & Netanyahu both have publicly boasted about how they control America. They are pretty sure that their One World Order Agenda can't be neutralized at the present time.

    And the top levels of the Illuminati and Masonic organizations are controlled by Jews with the lower level of the pyramids ignorant of what the Jews are doing at the top. Same goes for the CIA, FBI, and Mosaad in which a compartmentalized 'NEED TO KNOW' strategy is employed. I hope there is some White Aryan rogue units in those organizations to neutralize the Jews when they attempt a coup. They first need to take the guns away from the American citizens with the repeal of the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. I read that Pennsylvania deer hunters have more guns then the whole Chinese army.

    You can also check out the 1976 Rosenthal Interview exposing the Jewish ways. The Jew, Rosenthal was permanently silenced shortly after the interview.

Any Jew who is self serving is not true to his teachings. Any practitioner of any GOD based religion who preaches hatred or inequality is not true to his teachings. Jesus was not racist.Whatever Creator we had is not racist. Any member of the freemasons who does not believe in the equality of all humankind and does not strive for the advancement of ALL humankind is disrespecting his oath and does not deserve to be a freemason. There are liars and frauds in all organizations and religions; those who twist morality into self serving philosophies. How do you see color in the two phrases that most simply describe what morally should be the bane of our' existence : [ " Treat others as you wish to be treated"], and [ " Love thy neighbor. " ] ?

    Brian Winiarski, I'm going to butt into your conversation and ask you to elaborate on your statement: "The non-white races did most of the work here while we had most of the benefits". And of the non-white races you're thinking of, which of their native countries is the most successful?

  • Amicus | June 21, 2014 5:06 PM

    @Brian Winiarski
    I can agree with you Brian, it was the blacks and the Irish who did a lot of the back breaking building of America, mostly the blacks though, the Irish were paid a pittance but the black "gave" their labor for free, when they tried to use the Indians there was mass suicide, so they got the African blacks and the "Irish" blacks the main difference is they later promoted the Irish to white-hood and left the slaves. - History is a B****.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 21, 2014 2:45 PM

    During the construction of most our cities, the immigrants and slaves did most of the manual labor and even the engineering. I do not claim that they were all not white. Many of them were caucasion. You ask me about which non white race has the most successful country. It depends on your' definition of success. I do not consider the USA successful in any way other than financially or politically. Just the fact that most of us argue about what color or what religion is better or who was here first or who should own what means that we are a failure at the things in life that could actually save this country and/ or planet. We need to focus on free thought, free and sustainable energy that does not harm the earth, and respect for life regardless of race. I am not Buudhist, but many of their' teachings make sense because they lack the ego of many other religions like christianity which often in modern society seem to be color oriented.

Do your own research with key words such as Jewish Question and Jewish Control, because I have come across many sites that give specific names of all of the clandestine and obvious Jews in government,corporations,the legal system,main stream media,academia,banking ,money creation,AIPAC & ADL control of all of our politicians,CIA,FBI,Mosaad, stranglehold on the entertainment industry and even the "wag the dog"false flag total slanting of the nightly news in which the same professional actors have been spotted on youtube as being parents of victims in the various false flag occurrences throughout the United States, especially in their goal of changing the 2nd Amendment right of American citizens to bear arms against treasonous government actions.

    I have spent five years enlightening myself, and am not a member of any Aryan , White Nationalist or Neo-Nazi group but simply a shocked citizen who became aware of my brainwashing and ignorance with the tool of the internet.

    Any dual citizen Jews in politics and appointed power positions in government are traitors when they serve Israel instead of the welfare of America. The democratic system is a rigged affair with all politicians having to sign a pledge to serve Israel first in order to receive funds for election and reelection. Those that refuse are black balled into political oblivion. Even if the elections were fair, the computer election tally machine corporations are controlled by Jews.

    As America sinks down into the cesspool of multiculturalism giving up it's superpower status, along with 15 to 20 points of average IQ, and White Aryan full foreheaded creativeness, we will see how ridiculous and asinine Brian's statement is. America was not built on the backs of Negro slavery or Chinese railroad building labor but rather the industriousness of the NATION of LIKE White European Christians and a economically healthy MIDDLE CLASS and INDEPENDENT FARMERS, which is hastily disappearing due to the outsourcing of Aryan technology and manufacturing by the Jew controlled global corporations and take over by giant monopolistic food farm corporations which will withhold food whenever the situation dictates.

    We have seen how far the mixed and blended White Spaniards, Negros, and Native Americans have progressed in Mexico and the rest of the Central and South Americas. The pure bred White Spaniards and Jews are the ones who are in control of their mixed less intelligent brothers, with a ruling and peon class of people, devoid of a fruitful economic Middle Class.

You accuse me of being part of some New World Government that wants to destroy caucasions. I have my own political beliefs, my own religious beliefs, and my own thoughts concerning everything. My thoughts are usually different than those around me and usually this causes me to be unaccepted. You however have identical thoughts to the klan members or aryan brothers or skinheads or nazis or whoever you probably surround yourself with. You obviously are a person who strives for the acceptance of your' peers and have such intense desire for acceptance that you will even adopt their' philosophies and religions. I gave up any desire to be accepted years ago because I feel like I would be letting myself down by trying to act look or think like others just to be in a club or group or cliche. It is easier to be just me even though it usually means I am alone, You speak of me as one who is unwilling to educate himself. I have very few set beliefs regarding anything. My opinions change frequently with exposure to new information. I am open minded and this is essential for the absorbtion of knowledge.

    CRO, I wish you did not hate me just because I am smarter than you. I am not referring to education but natural intelligence that some are born with and some are not (REGARDLESS OF RACE). I do genuinely care about the human race even though I despise most humans; often even myself. I was born with the curse of knowing that if we wish to survive and continue to evolve into something better then we have to stop needless hatred based on petty things such as color. All people of all colors that care about humankind and our' planet need to bond and work together to solve the problems that are actually destroying us. These problems are greed, envy, needless hatred, racism, tribalism, intense desire for power,control or fame, vanity,incorrect religion, etc. . I could probably in time think of a hundred more words to describe the root of our' probably imminent destruction, but self interest, and self centeredness are probably the simplest ones to describe us. Most people only truly care about themselves. Those that are honest and care about humankind and respect all life in general are disrespected or ridiculed. I have stooped to a level beneath my maturity by calling you and John names such as moron or dweeb, and for this I am ashamed and apologetic. I am wrong to insult anothers intelligence, but I am only human. We all makemistakes, but we can be better if we quit interfering with evolution by arguing about things that do not matter, such as race and color.We need to focus on our' real problems such as the 15 percent of us that control and manipulate the other 85 percent (regardless of race or color). Quit blaming non whites for all the bad, you are wasting energy that you should focus on battling greed, Racism is a major distraction from us solving our true problems. I cannot understand why everyone cannot understand this.

On the surface, it does appear to be strong in opinion, weak in intelligence and thought process. But it can also be the reaction of a White majority race in America responding to their perception that Whites are being squeezed out of their own nation.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 18, 2014 3:01 PM

    CRO, I personally did not like the original Annie and doubt a black version could be any worse. It is too late for whites to worry about being squeezed out of this nation. If it was going to be a concern, it should have been of concern when we were bringing in slaves to do our labor or when we were allowing immigrants in to build our cities while they lived in poverty. The non-white races did most of the work here while we had most of the benefits, Should we cast them all out now that we no longer need them? Most white kids I see today only know how to stuff their' fat little faces with chicken mcnuggets while they have their' spoiled, beedy little eyes glued to a facebook page. Will they be able to run daddy's company by themselves?

    To Hollywood: Stop Remaking White Movies / TV Shows With Black Actors

    What is currently going on with remaking classic television and movies known for white characters is absolute disrespect and racism against the original production.

    It is the rape of white culture inserting a culture that never belonged and does not belong. The integrity of the original shows must be protected and not be open to a cultural attack and a resistance must be formed to prevent all of white culture being desecrated. Black culture appears to be determined to never stop until they have black remakes of every last white movie or TV show, while whites are unallowed to remake black movies or TV shows with white actors since that would be considered racist. What is happening now is racist and it must be stopped or white culture won’t have nothing left that wasn’t raped by the black.

    Mike, You are probably correct concerning the media's coverage of that story. They purposelly added fuel to a fire that has been burning for way too long knowing that the stir it would cause would allow them more business. You are correct also regarding the reasons you give for racial profiling and racism in general. I live in a predominantly white town in a predominantly white portion of the bible belt in southern, illinois though, and there are many thieves, drug addicts, and thugs here, also predominantly white. We are better than no other race. White skin has not been around for long and was caused by a mutation. We are different, but not superior. Each person is different, some better than others, but race has nothing to do with that.

  • Mike | June 16, 2014 10:05 AM

    I agree that "superiority" is subjective - some ethnicities fare better in certain environments than others, and vise versa. As a Caucasian, if you were dropped in a sub-Saharan climate and expected to fend for yourself, you'd probably fare poorly (as would I) because of your genetic predisposition. You'd be ill-suited to compete, both socially and biologically, in a tribal environment. Similarly, when non-Western ethnicities are exposed to an alien culture, such as ours, and expected to compete with those "native" to said culture, they tend to have less success. So, I think we'd agree that ethnic generalizations can safely be made without "racist" intentions; but there are exceptions to every rule, and I think people become defensive when sweeping statements such as "all blacks are criminals" are made.

    However, I think folks like Cro Magnon Man would argue that statistics cannot be ignored, simply for the sake of cultural sensitivity. There are certain racial realities that people need to acknowledge with honesty before any real progress can be made, and I'm afraid that that's just not possible in our increasingly-"politically correct" culture. In your predominantly-Caucasian hometown, you observe that the majority of crime is committed by whites. On a greater scale, Cro looks at the country as a whole and recognizes that blacks, statistically speaking, commit the greatest number of crimes "per individual." I agree with Cro in this regard, because I can't ignore the statistics despite the many hypotheses I've researched to explain this behavior.

    So, I certainly don't fault people for their opinions on these sensitive topics, but I do everything I can to encourage people to investigate them thoroughly. I do know for sure that these conversations usually breakdown into shouting matches before any progress is made, and I think that's unfortunate and counter-productive. Solutions are rarely reached that way. That said, I thank you for your civility in our discussion.

I am guessing that it isn't pure bred White European Pole, but a mixture of mongrel to cause such hatred on this site.

    I know that we will never agree on the Zimmerman/Martin incident because both sides of the issue have biased evidence. I saw photos of Zimmerman's bloodied face after the incident which would lend to verify the story that Zimmerman received karate chops to his body and face. And the menacing looking fully grown Trayvon Martin didn't look like a BOY to me.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 15, 2014 8:05 PM

    Cro, I joined the air force when I was 18. I must admit that I joined not out of pride for America or any reason of valor, but because I needed a job. I did however serve with men of various ethnicity, and the military and people in it honored those who were honest and pure of heart. A racist would have been beaten by his military peers or at the very least made to feel unwelcome. As far as your remark about it being a no win war, I think any war in the middle east will probably never have a winner. Religious wars have been fought there for thousands of years and there will never be peace there. My racial composition is unknown because I am adopted and have not tested my dna. I am white skinned and have blue eyes. However, I am certain that I am of mixed bloodlines because we all are. This pure bred you speak of could only be created with inbreeding just like pure bred dogs are created. If I was purebred I would not brag about it as you white power folks do so enthusiastically. That simply means that your' greatgreatgreatgreat grandparents were probably brother and sister.

    @Brian Winiarski "Cro Magnon Man, As I stated before; all racists are cowards. If George Zimmerman is your' hero then you are as much a bitch as him. He shot an unarmed kid for no valid reason."

    George Zimmerman was an Hispanic Jew who defended himself against a full grown, muscled, Karate wielding thug. George while on the ground as a result of a karate attack, was suppose to die with the advances of Trayvon Martin. However, Trayvon was surprised when George pulled a gun and shot him dead. The Kosher news brigade purposely showed a very young innocent looking photo of Trayvon Martin. Martin's Facebook site purposely took down the older menacing looking tattooed photos of Trayvon Martin. He wasn't an innocent, unarmed(Karate hands) KID when confronting Zimmerman. It is typical of main stream media's under reporting of BLACK ON WHITE CRIME.(Except that George wasn't White, but an Hispanic Jew)

  • Damien | June 17, 2014 1:25 AM

    Mike

    You say racism is an innate sense of self-protection. I agree. I think as hominids evolved, they quickly learned that their largest competitors were other groups of hominids. Thus, when we see an unfamiliar-looking person, at first, we might be inclined to feel suspicion. I do believe, however, that over time people can overcome this fear, which is in large part genetic. For instance, I had a partner who was black, and I don't think I ever felt closer to another person in my life.

    I want you to ask yourself what would happen if there was a society that remained diversified through numerous generations. At that point, many of the initial suspicions and biases would have been eliminated, and I think people would get along much better. Now days, diversified societies are usually imposed on people by the primary group in power. The usually bad economic conditions tend to make crime rates high in these areas. In a hypothetical situation in which all of the injustices are removed, I could easily see people from different races living in harmony.

  • Mike | June 15, 2014 9:36 PM

    Brian, I respect your reasoning; but, in truth, human evolution involved very little "diversification" throughout prehistory. Tribal warfare was commonplace in the hunter/gatherer environment and AMHS essentially wiped out the inferior hominid breeds. Natural selection was allowed to take it's course in this regard, and "survival of the fittest" proved the ideal means for advancement of the human condition.

    Similarly, cultural mixing has had mostly volatile results in modern times as well. At the macro level, history has shown that profound increases in war, disease, labor exploitation and religious/political persecution are directly correlated with social and biological diversification. Moreover, at the community level, a 2007 Harvard study (the largest ever of its kind) concluded that in the most ethnically diverse communities, neighbors "trust" one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. An increase in diversity leads to decreases in voting, volunteerism and charity. Virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings as people become more guarded and stifled, while "bigotry" becomes more "criminal."

    The Martin/Zimmerman affair was concluded as fairly as possible, given the available physical evidence and eyewitness testimony. Your account paints a different picture than what the jury concluded based on this evidence, which was that Zimmerman (while doing something stupid) was attacked and acted in self-defense. This is fully-permitted by law. I certainly don't condone Zimmerman's yahoo vigilantism, but the man assumed a noble (albeit unassigned) duty to protect his neighborhood, not to specifically target blacks.

    Now, the fact that he profiled Martin is undeniable; but also undeniable is the validity for his reasoning: blacks in that neighborhood commit an astounding majority of the crime. Zimmerman was beyond his depth, certainly, but I wouldn't necessarily label him a racist or a coward; he was acting instinctively, given the nature of the criminal element within his environment. Recognition of a problem is not, itself, "racist" if it's based on verifiable data and happens to indicate a particular racial criminal proclivity, agreed? I actually think it's terrible that blacks commit so much crime in neighborhoods like this because it forces racial profiling, just for the sake of self-preservation.

    I think it's telling that Zimmerman is, himself, part black, has black family members, and has personal relationships with blacks, yet he was depicted as a white racist by the media. If any party is guilty of premeditated racism, it's the media for perpetuating the myth of rampant "white-on-black" crime in this country. If this story were covered more appropriately, with less racial undertones, I think debates like these would occur much more amicably, do you agree?

  • Brian Winiarski | June 15, 2014 8:35 PM

    Mike, what you say about it being a human instinct to mistrust those who appear different is true, but it is an instict that has not served us well for a long time. Part of our' evolution was an increase of intelligence and those with the ability to accept each person as an individual will have more opportunity at survival than those who just want to destroy all other skintones. Who will have the better chance of survival, a man who likes mexican,chinese,soul,cajun,polish, and all other foods, or a man who only eats german food. In reference to your' use of Martin/Zimmerman to debate my calling of racists cowards, Zimmerman followed a black person because he was black. Martin was simply walking and causing no harm. Zimmerman was told to end his pursuit by the 911 operator he talked to. He instead continued and forced the altercation which took place. He would not have done so if he did not have a gun. Martin tried to defend himself, but was literally outgunned due to the fact that he was unarmed. I did not know Martin and I may not have even liked him, but I would not chase him down and kill him or anyone simply because of color. I would need a personal reason to kill, and to have a personal reason, you must actually know that man personally.

  • Mike | June 15, 2014 4:16 PM

    I see. That's an interesting definition of racism you're using, but I don't think it's accurate. To be more accurate, racism is the innate sense of self-protection, possessed by every human being, which is triggered when they encounter a person with dissimilar physical and behavioral characteristics; and it's as old as the human species, itself. It's a tribal instinct that's served human evolution well for almost 5 million years, and to deny oneself this instinct is to deny one's own humanity. That denial is attempted with regularity these days, to be sure. But make no mistake, humans are biologically equipped to distrust those who look and act differently. It has nothing to do with cowardice.

    Take, for example, the Martin/Zimmerman scenario used below. Didn't both of these individuals follow their "racist" instincts? I submit that they did. So, considering the events which transpired, how are you able to accurately label them both "cowards?" I'm interested to know.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 15, 2014 3:14 PM

    Mike, you ask me to justify my statement that all racist are cowards. Racists consider themselves superior to those not belonging to their' race. Considering yourself superior to an entire different group of people instead of judging each person individually is egotistical. People who are egotistical are so because they have subconcious self-esteem issues and instead of battling these issues with self honesty and facing their' own flaws, they choose to just look down upon others who are different or appear different. This is what a racist does and this is cowardly. Do you understand now? A man with courage will face people individually. A coward will just condemn all who are not members of his club, therefore racism is practically synonymous with cowardice.

    White European, in reference to your' remark concerning ostracism or problems on the job for those who speak up: that is also true for people like me who are against racism but live in certain parts of the country such as the bible belt which is dominated by racism although it is seldom admitted. During the last election, I worked in southern illinois as a coal miner. The owner of the mine wanted anti-Obama signs posted around the mine. His reasoning for this probably had nothing to do with racism, but I was a contractor at the time and my boss and most of my crew were racist and very proud to be so. Myself and one other man who are against racism complained about being forced to hang signs that were political and complained about all those who were proud and happy to hang them merely because the potential president was black. These idiots did not even vote! I planned on voting for Obama anyway, but having to hang signs against him and having to listen to racial slurs the whole time when I should have been mining coal pretty much guaranteed that I would vote for him. Does it amuse you that your' racist brethren who did not even vote guaranteed two votes for our' black president?

    @Brian Winiarski "I don't believe whites were the first race to call america home. They just took it over by force and treachery and have no moral right to claim it."


    Thousands of years ago Europeans living in modern day France called, "The Solutreans", used to hunt wild animals for food. There‘s all kinds of archaeological evidence proving that these Europeans, (who lived before & during the last great ice age of 17, 000 years ago) hunted animals with a special arrow head attached to a spear. These special arrow heads were 100 times sharper than a steel razor! These unique arrow heads are called "Clovis points" and aren‘t found in Asia or Siberia but are found in Europe. The real interesting fact is that they have been recently discovered here in North America as well! However, the "Clovis points" are not present along the route of the Bering Land Bridge! So that means that these arrow heads did not come from Asia as they have not been found on that continent. They are an exclusive White man Arrow head, which have been unearthed in Europe and now here in North America!

    So how did they get here? During the last great ice age which covered the Atlantic Ocean with ice as far South as Southern France, our ancient food gatherers had to venture out into the sea to locate additional food due to the harsh winter which had killed off previously available animal herds. These hunters who traveled by canoe accidentally got trapped in the ice flow & gulf streams & got swept to North America by the prevailing sea currents. Once arriving in this new land they had to eat, so they resumed hunting with the techniques that had worked for them in Europe. The White Solutrean people continued to create their "Clovis Point" arrow heads (which are now found in archaeological digs throughout North America). Science has even recently discovered White skeletal remains here in North America like the Kennewick Man which predate any Indian civilization. But our government, which is blatantly anti-White, works overtime to suppress these facts and hide the truth from our people.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 9, 2014 5:29 PM

    I am familiar with clovis points. I have collected arrowheads since my youth. They are very similar to the point used by these solutreans you speak of but not identical. What we call paleo indians appear to have migrated here from south america and they used clovis points. Your solutreans did migrate to the east coast probably by water and maybe first. However, it has long been believed that america was first visited by people from asia. The oldest humans discovered are from africa. I believe asia, europe, and africa are all connected by land aren't they? I was not good in geography so , I may be incorrect. If I am correct though is it not possible that africans migrated to europe and asia then back through europe then into the water and to america? Is it possible that these soulutreans originated in africa first? That would be ironic. None of this even matters though. Well educated and well spoken rascists like you always use history and literature to make uneducated people think that color matters concerning a man's worthiness. Under the skin, every human is practically identical. History has nothing to do with morality. Use your' education and intelligence to help evolve this dumbass world, not corrupt it further.

Decades of easy living, liberalism and queer-sensibilities have taken their toll. The average western white man is not a man any-more he is mentally, physically a feeble neuter. Somehow believing he is an enlightened understanding caring soul. More concerned with how his decaf coffee is prepared, drinking plenty of isotonic fluids and eating five portions of crap a day plus the emotional incontinence of a infant child crying for a dummy to suck-on. Don't get going on man-bags, goatee beards & converse plimsolls the whole package. That sadly is the new improved modern man in touch with his feminine side who does not shake hands any more but will give you a high-five or bump like a brother. Brian if you are still with us God bless you my son it looks like the meek shall inherit the earth and all the former things shall pass away.

    I don't believe whites were the first race to call america home. They just took it over by force and treachery and have no moral right to claim it.Why don't we all leave and give the continent to the albinos since they are whitest?

    I I recently lost my job because I have intelligence and this is frowned upon in modern society. I am ignorant in the field of democracy( which I think of as kissing ass ). Therefore I will probably soon lose access to my freedom to voice my opinion here because I cannot afford it financially( I cannot pay for internet).I really feel like this is perhaps the most important subject of our time. Andre Seewood you started this as a commentary about black movies but I am sure you knew it was actually about racism and illogical hatred in general. You did a good thing I think by starting this conversation because it perhaps allowed some people to think about this subject. I think that in time here I maybe could get at least one brainwashed racist to think logically but my time here is probably almost over and I want to apologize to any of you racists out there whom I have been unable to convert into intelligent, logical thinkers. It is very difficult to undo centuries of brainwashing in just a few months. I truly write my opinions here because it is an opportunity for me to make a positive change in this society that I would like to love but cannot because of the injustice of it. If I was able to kiss ass better and have financial success, I would be able to have more opportunity to persuade people like White European of the correct and intelligent way of thinking. My rich, white bosses keep firing me though because I insist on my freedom to be a free thinker.I am in many ways sorry that I cannot be brainwashed bedause life would be be so simple, so stress free, so easy.I apologize to myself and to of all you racists. I am truly sorry that I have a brain,because intelligence is no longer welcome on earth.

    I am not gone yet, Miss John. There is no such thing as a true liberal anymore, but I appreciate the compliment. As payment for your' graciousness, I will pray that someday you will have a daughter or granddaughter who will love and be loved by a good man who is pure in heart, but not pure white. Do some of your' ideas form while you lie on a tanning bed? Just curious

    I don't like to watch black movies but I thoroughly enjoy watching Dr. Farrakhan on YouTube tear into and expose the Rothschild Zionists' New World Order agenda of controlling America's government , money creation function , main stream media, judicial system, and academia, as well as the big global corporations who are outsourcing all of the White Aryan technology to third world countries, while drastically diminishing the well paying Middle Class manufacturing base.

  • White European | June 6, 2014 7:35 PMReply

    @Brian Winiarski "If your' dark skinned, african forefather never left Africa, there would be no Europe. There would be no whitey."

    The Afro-Centrist theory is pushed in our American educational system to compliment the false egalitarian principle that all races are equal and that multiculturalism and multiracialism is good for a country instead of the ethno-nationalistic White Christian majority theory were all the ethnics are the same and pull for each other without civil strife or conflict.

    White and Asian human bones were discovered in Georgia, a country in Eastern Europe which pre-date any black African human bones proving that Whites were not spawned from blacks.

    Our government and academia have been infiltrated and over run by international troublemakers pushing the egalitarian races are equal theory, the Afro-Centrist theory, and multiculturalism which is blatantly anti-White.

    Saying that human life originated in Africa is about as meaningful as saying all human life originated on Earth. Just because Africa is full of blacks today doesn't mean that the early humans were also black.

    Africa is a continent. The humans that populate it today are in no way indicative of what walked out of there and into Europe a million years ago. Don't confuse today with a million years ago. Evolution or science would have one believe that "out of Africa" means that Aryan, White Europeans descended from blacks or that all humans came from the same ancestor.

    When people try to spout that we are all the same," out of Africa" crap I simply ask them, with as strait of a face as I can “well, what happened? Why did we evolve so far from our black ancestors and they did not? ”

  • Brian Winiarski | June 6, 2014 8:24 PM

    I think our history books here still state the same propaganda they did 38 yrs ago when I was learning to read. Books, magazines, newspapers, internet, television, and all other forms of media are used by governments, corporations, religious organizations, and individuals to coerce others into thinking however they think. Perhaps you are correct about us not all being from Africa or perhaps those bones in Georgia are not real. Perhaps if your' doctor did a dna test on 100 europeans and said he found some african blood in them all, he would be lying. Perhaps your' theories are correct, but I still fail to see how that would give you or anyone of any color the right to so arrogantly believe themselves a superior race.The only way any man can be fairly judged is as an individual, based on how he treats others. A good man has honor, speaks with honesty, and treats everyone with dignity regardless of how they look. A man who bases all his thoughts on racist beliefs is either not very intelligent, or just evil. If someone is good to me they are my friend, regardless of skintone. If they are mean to me , they are my enemy. I am better than no race, but I am better than some individuals from each race.How can this way of logical thought be so difficult for all you racists to understand? It is so simple, so clear !!! You know I am right. You know it is wrong to mistreat anyone because they look different. Stop the childish nonsense for the sake of mankind. We will all perish eventually, but why are we in such a hurry?

  • White European | June 5, 2014 6:41 PMReply

    Multiculturalism , miscegenation and open homosexuality is being shoved down Whitey's throat in spite of White Europeans' desire not to mix with coloreds or the brown mudpie races. As a White, I watch football and baseball games on TV because it is difficult to spot the black players, but have an aversion to seeing sweating blacks running up and down the basketball court. The same goes for predominantly black movies. Whites want to have their own homogeneous nations but a certain group of globally organized troublemakers have been busy changing all of the immigration laws in White majority countries and only White majority countries since the 1960's.

  • Brian Winiarski | June 6, 2014 11:25 AM

    John, you say you are an emancipated liberal free thinking independantly minded young woman. Are you just bitter because your' parents gave you a male name, John?

  • Brian Winiarski | June 6, 2014 11:20 AM

    White European, the only thing shoved down whiteys throat in the past 2000 yrs is the ignorant misconception that somehow we are better than others because of our whiteness. If your' dark skinned, african forefather never left Africa, there would be no Europe. There would be no whitey. This is a true fact. If there is or ever was a Jesus, I guarantee he was not white. If there is a heaven or hell it does not matter which you go to; there will be all colors there. Face the facts that you know are true and stop trying to convice yourself and others of these stupid(WHITE) lies!

  • John | June 6, 2014 7:44 AM

    White European, you have it. The enforced mixing of races. Which has impacted strongly on they would like you to believe. "I'm an emancipated liberal free-thinking, independently-minded young woman living like an equal in the modern age" bullshit. Why is it almost every other white female I see now has a mixed-race baby/child without the father of the brat anywhere to be seen, don't you find that strange? It pains me when I catch sight of a sweet young naive white middle-class girl walking hand in hand with one of these degenerate creatures. Listening to his inept moronic attempt at communication using broken English patois like "innit blood, basically know wot I mean man show me respec bredrin". Lady, what future do you think lays in store for you staying with this feckless fool. Trapped in some inner-city shit hole estate surrounded on all sides by these soulless cretins. Any aspirations you had will be lost while your youth, beauty and vitality are eroded rearing his offspring.

    I don't like to watch black films because when i see groups of black men it reminds me of every time I have been a victim of racism. And of every time I have been seriously injured by men trying to kill me based on my color (white). Because some douchebags filled their heads with a bunch of bullsht when they were kids that made them think I had something to do with SLAVERY. I did not. and I never would. They will continue to punish me for it anyway because BLACK PEOPLE ARE RACISTS!!!!! BLIND EGOTISTICAL HYPOCRITICAL RACISTS!!!!!!! (not all obviously, at some point we all evolve).
    I suffer every day of my life because of the pure dumbness inserted into black children as they grow up. NONE OF THEM WERE EVER SLAVES AND I NEVER HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT BUT THANKS TO YOUR SCHOOLS I LOST MY GOOD FRIENDS THE YEAR THEY LEARNED ABOUT IT AND ALMOST LOST MY LIFE (permanently injured) FROM THEIR IGNORANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They could all disappear from the planet and I would not shed one tear. Not one. I of course would not ever do such a thing (even though I could) because I AM A PACIFIST. I BELIEVE IN PEACE AND LOVE DESPITE YOUR VILE IGNORANCE TO THE CONTRARY. And I always will. So I will practice peace and love. But I will never forget what you did to them and to me by FILLING THEIR HEADS FULL OF SHT WHEN THEY WERE KIDS!!!!!! Like a kid can properly put things into perspective and won't emotionally freak on anything....and then just kill all the white people for something they had nothing to do with at ALL. And oh how I love that Jews and Blacks get along so well.... WELL GUESS WHO OWNED THE SLAVE BOATS?!?!?!!? Do some research you retarded melons before you murder anymore white children.

  • Brian Winiarski | May 31, 2014 11:52 PM

    Uncle Tom, It is apparent that you have been hurt bad in your' life by some black people. You probably live in an area that is predominantly black. In my life, I have lived in areas that were predominantly white, predominantly black, and equally mixed. Personally, I have only been hurt by people of my own color(white). The actual true color of those that hurt me though is yellow(the color of all cowards). The people that hurt me either outnumbered me, had more money than me, lied to me to gain something, or were in some other way more powerful than me and were just bullies or wanted something that I had. Rregardless of the color of their ' skin, they were all yellow because they were all cowards. You stated that blacks are racist. Some are, but the ones that are racist are not actually black; they are yellow because racist people are also cowards. They are afraid to face and judge each person individually and prefer to just hate based on skintone. People of courage and honor have many different skintones. All others are yellow.

    It deeply saddens me to read about any kind of prejudice subconscious or otherwise because though I am white I also have a rare neurological condition that often causes people to treat me as if I am either a liar or a simpleton. I fail to see why people act as if it is important wether you are white, black or a purple elf a person is a person and should be judged on his or her personal merits not the colour of their skin or if they sometimes need to use a wheelchair. As for the actual issue discussed I find someone walking out a film because of the colour of the cast ridiculous and think the people who see fit to do so ignorant.

  • Brian Winiarski | May 30, 2014 8:13 AM

    VI, I am not sure if your' condition is so rare. I suspect it may afflict all people of true intelligence in this ignorant society that is so obsessed with appearances. What do you call a person who lies in a tanning bed to make themself what they perceive as being more attractive even though they know they are risking cancer by doing so? I would call that person a moron and generally the moron is a white american. Yes they are pretty..... pretty dumb!!! I am an ugly, white, and american, but if I die of skin cancer it will be from overexposure to the sun because I often have to work in it. I will not get it because my vanity surpasses my I.Q. Appearances are usually false in our' society but ignorance seldom is !!!

    Alot of little white punks in my town walk around with their' pants falling down looking like a bunch of clowns talking about how they are better than the browns. Little white boys cover your' cracks and stop hating blacks before you get smacked. Quit trying to act like what you say you hate. Damn, you make me irate !!! Question: What do you get when you mix all the colors in the light spectrum? Answer:White. Kind of ironic eh?
