Is “Barack the Magic Negro” Racist?

  • Because liberals politicize everything, only conservatives are allowed to decide what’s racist. As a conservative, I assure you that a white person calling Barack a “Negro” isn’t racist because Barack is, after all, a Negro.

‘Shorter’ concept created by Daniel Davies and perfected by Elton Beard. We are aware of all Internet traditions.™

    The GOP is the colorblind party, don’tcha know?

    Calling the President-elect a ‘magic negro’ is central to that point.

    I would say that a guy named Rick Moran with a Web site called rightwingnuthouse, who is also fat, is ironic, but everyone knows irony is dead.

    Well, then, Rick, calling you a moron isn’t an insult, because you are, after all, a moron.

    Want to no what a racism looks like? Take a look in the mirror, fuckwit! By the wat, you spelled your name wrong, it is M-o-r-o-n.

    You know what else ain’t racist? Segregation. I don’t hear no people bitchin’ when you separate out your recycling. Oh, no, then separate but equal is fine. It’s just that all of a sudden when it comes to jobs and schools and public accommodations you libruls start whining about this and that.

    No, no. Their next performance is Stepin Fetchit’s famous whistling past the graveyard routine in blackface.

    Yeah, and using the N-word. That ain’t racist. If it is Ok for Black folks to say it then every redneck, cracker, hillbilly, and white supremacist in America ought to be able to say it proudly in public.

    The fact is, it is not racist to point out the shortcomings of the negro race, as they are very obvious, they are lazy, stupid, violent and overly emotional, which is why liberals love them so much, they wear the “blackness” and the “ghetto” as a badge of pride and glorify the sex, drugs, drunkeness, fights that make up “black culture.”

    You don’t see whites falling for Islam, but lots of blacks do, the suckers.

    And just as parodying someone as a “magical Negro” isn’t racist, it also isn’t racist to have a parody Al Sharpton singing the parody as a minstrel performer, and using mispronunciations to hilarious effect just as the original minstrel performers playing stupid Negroes used them in what was considered by some to be “entertainment”…60 years ago.

    I’ve also heard Latinos, Asians, and even, Samoans can be racists.

    You know that means don’t you,? Its ok if “Whites” are Racist too.

    After all LOOK AT BLACK PEOPLE WHO KILL WHITE PEOPLE!!

    Isn’t that evidence enough that ALL white people are victims systemic bigotry?

    A neo-con wingnut welfare recipient has published a piece in a right-wing newspaper stating that Bush is wonderful.

    From the article: Much of the condemnation of his policies though is driven by a venomous hatred of Bush’s personality and leadership style, rather than an objective assessment of his achievements.

    Yup. As a liberal, I’m not much for context. Does anybody remember if Bush did anything, good or bad? I wasn’t really following. What’s a president got to do with policy, anyway?

    All I know is he gives me the heebie-jeebies.

    I, for one, thought it instructive to learn that the existence of black criminals makes it okay for white leaders to make racist public insults.

    Because of course random acts of violence by minorities against white folks are exactly the same thing as 500 years of systematic enslavement, genocide, dispossession, exploitation, rape, mutilation, murder, segregation, disenfranchisement, and marginalization by whites against minorities.

    One story gets coverage coast to coast, and race and racism are the whole narrative. The other one is buried, with veiled or non-existant references to race although the whole thing is racially motivated.

    Oh, that’s to frighten you even more, ‘Easy to Scare’.

    Well, where’s the fun in that. Typical chickenshit conservative, afraid to publicly take on the left in open combat. Though I suppose that a war of the wits with the unarmed is a tad unsportsmanlike. Perhaps we should express a bit of chagrin.

    So, by Truth’s standard (and will you fucking stay to your stupid fucking pseudonym, asshole? I’ve had to put you into the killfile like 28 times in the past week because you won’t fucking stick to a name), the remarkable divorce rate in white families completely justifies any petty racism a black person can commit, right? I mean, since the other way around totally justifies petty racism from, y’know, white people.

    Actually, I suspect that’d be where his racial “equality” turns on a dime. Since nothing can justify black-on-white racism, unlike the other way around.

    DrDick:

    Well, not quite unified.

    There’s still the “Maybe they’re just assholes” to factor in as well. I suppose you could posit “Maybe they’re just stupid assholes” as a unification theorem, but that’s at least twice as complex as either original option.

  56. Dan Someone said,

    December 28, 2008 at 20:39

    I am comparing two things.

    A song is written (about the President!) that mocks him for being black.

    Blacks abduct two white people, subject them to lengthy and horrific tortures, then kill them.

    In both instances, the motivation was the color of the victim.

    Even in the link you posted, which is apparently a blog with a point of view, shall we say, there is no clear indication that race was the motivation in the murders. Lots of insinuation by the blogger in question and some of the people he links to, but nothing from the AP reports or any official word that says this was anything other than a bunch of hoodlums that committed horrendous crimes.

    One story gets coverage coast to coast, and race and racism are the whole narrative. The other one is buried, with veiled or non-existant references to race although the whole thing is racially motivated.

    Now you tell me what is going on here.

    One story involves a national figure who made history by being the first African-American elected to the presidency of the United States, an event inextricably wrapped up with our national views on race and racism. The other one, horrific though it may be, is still in the end a local crime story. Many communities have crime stories that rival this one for viciousness; few of them make national headlines.

  57. WereBear said,

    December 28, 2008 at 20:42

    I think the Prime Mover in the unified field theory must be “assholery,” since a few, like William F. Buckley, showed signs of not being stupid, but he supplemented that with “mean.”

    In fact, when we speak of the “mean of wingnuttia,” we have an absolute quantity.

    Yep. There be racists.

    But guess what we learned just last month.

    Yep. There’s not enough of them to have an effect on a national outcome.

    There are fewer racists, fewer homophobes, fewer advocates of purely tribal fear and hatred. Every decade, every generation, more people learn that there is NO such thing as race, and no harm to anyone from people who love each other.

    We’re all just humans, for whatever good and bad that means, and our options are to live together in peace or continue to slaughter each other like animals.

    If you’re looking to see where you are on the scale of humanity, Rick, relative to where WE are? Just turn on your TV on January 20th. Any channel will do just fine. WE elected Barack Hussein Obama to be our 44th President. You chose not to participate, because you are one of those 20%ers. You can cling to your obsolete hatred and fear, because we are already there.

    The whole “comparing two news events, as if the comparison will tease out anything meaningful” thing is a sucker’s game, anyway, since you can choose pretty much any two stories you want to establish your thesis. I could “prove” that the Liberal News Media is inexorably obsessed with cute white women by comparing stories like the runaway bride disappearance or the murder of Natalie Holloway to pretty much anything at all.

    It’s the new Derangement Syndrome, just like the RW always accused us of suffering about Bush. They have tried to tar him with anything, and they are growing desperate, because none of it seems to stick. Wright, Rezco, Blagojevich, nothing has managed to lower Obama’s approval rating. So finally, pathetically, they are reduced to criticizing his very popularity itself. This is where derisive terms like “The Chosen One”, “Chocolate Jesus”, and, yes, “The Magic Negro” really come from. It reminds me of a whiny, unattractive high school girl, sneering about “little miss perfect.” “Who wants to go to their stupid ol’ prom anyway?”

And he’s got a Muslim name. From Islam. And he is a Luo tribesman from Kenya Africa and he’s black. And black. And he can play basketball, which is because he’s black, which goes along with being black.

    I was thinking more along the lines of quantum entanglement, where a change in one entangled particle instantly causes an identical change in the other, no matter how far apart they are. I think wingnuts’ brains are all entangled together, much like their bodies are often entangled together during their frequent (but highly secret) gay orgies.

    I think all the outrage over “Barack the Magic Negro” is a bit misplaced. What I find most offensive about it is how incredibly lame it is. The only good thing I can say about it is that at least the producers didn’t put a laugh track in it so that people would know it’s supposed to contain teh funny.

    At least when Johnny Rebel set out to write an outrageously racist song, he aimed for the stars, and when it came time to record an outrageously racist song, he had competent musicians backing him up in the studio.

    I hope it doesn’t seem as if I’m lamenting the sorry state of racist music. Racial content aside, the song is just lousy. A semi-skilled songwriter could have taken the concept of the Magic Negro and made a halfway decent song. Not only did Paul Shanklin take the low road, he copped out by occupying the middle of the road in his approach.

    What’s the big deal? The Reformed Aryan Church of White Butte has had a Chistianmas tradition of a “magic negro” for many years now. The church elders decide which congregant has been the biggest slacker about doctrinal matters, forces them to put on blackface makeup and then makes them run a gauntlet of the congregation, each of whom uses a big paddle to wail away on the unfortunate mock-negro. It’s sort of an airing of grievances, like Festivus, and it is followed by a spate of ritualized sodomy. I believe the Baptists share this tradition.

    Simba,

    I remember when 20/20 or Dateline or one of those shows did a report on Prussian Blue. The reporter managed to muster up a buttload of indignation over two tween girls singing racist songs, but not once in the report did she mention the obvious: I’ve picked boogers out my nose that have more talent than Lynx and Lamb Gaede. I almost feel bad for people who buy into the whole White Power/14 Words garbage… it’s gotta suck when poster children for Aryan Superiority are a couple of talentless future meth whores.

    A few weeks ago, I was dicking around YouTube, searching for The Sensational Alex Harvey Band’s version of “Tomorrow Belongs To Me”. I couldn’t find SAHB’s version, but there were several versions by White Power bands (Skrewdriver, The Klansmen, Saga [the Swedish racist, not the Canadian prog rock band from the 80s]). I thought it was incredibly odd that White Supremacists would use a song written by two Jews as an anthem of Ayran purity.

    For some reason, I as a white person am apparently free from any fear prompted by either of these 2 events, and as such, since these are the only 2 things to have ever happened anywhere, I have never been afraid of anything again and no problems have happened anywhere from any reason.

They don’t bother me any less, either. I also don’t watch Nancy Grace to see the latest news & discussion on whichever is the most recently kidnapped or murdered blond white girl.

    So, again, 2 of the most unimportant events of recent history were (a) a white kid getting beat up in Jena, La, and (b) a black ex-professor suggesting that somehow black people eliminate all white people.

    In particular I am completely not bothered by any number of black fruitcakes who make big talk about killing white people, unless there’s some immediate cause to think it’s an actual criminal plan rather than racial fantasy.

    Because the advocates lied about what it was supposed to do and how it would affect anyone besides gay people (which was, of course, not at all). Also, because outside agitators came in and did that lying, and spent massive amounts of money doing thus because, frankly, they are hateful people. And the anti-Prop 8 were rediculously disorganized. Course, it’s probably going to be ruled unconstitutional and, of course, time is on our side with this issue.

    So, the massive amount of conservative whites (and blacks and Latinos and Asians and so on) in California who voted for Prop. 8 had no effect whatsoever were irrelevent, just the black vote (which was statistically no more significant than other races) was significant. That’s just gibberish and old gibberish at that. Ah, willful ignorance. Nothing fuels racism any better.

    Say, did you ever figure out how gender could evolve? Or how McCain wound up not walking away with the landslide you predicted? Why do you think that is, anyway? The pitifulness of the McCain camp? The tired ideas or the lack of focus, or do you think it was just Obama’s black magic? I mean, it must smart to be that pitifully wrong, man.

    The problem Troofie is having is one of semantics.

    It’s a game that wingnuts love to play. They like to create strawmen with the false equivalency of such terms as “racism” and “bigotry” as if they mean the same thing.

    Simple explanation: “racism” is institutional, while “bigotry” is personal.

    Or put another way, racism is a social construct, while bigotry is just someone being a single solitary asshole.

    So I am more than happy to concede that the low-power radio ex-professor ranting about killing white people indicates he is a bigot. (Or a bad stand-up comedian.) Those who applauded him are likely also bigots. However, he is not representing an institutional or social construct, even if he did it at a college – unless that college agreed with and promoted him to do exactly that (which I doubt.)

    Likewise, any kid who beats up another kid on the playground, with the excuse of the color of their skin, is a bigoted asshole regardless of their respective skin colors.

    But in the case of, say, a white person dragging a black person to death through a Texas town behind their truck because they looked at a white woman, that is racism. It was done to create a “social goal”, which was to frighten Black people. Think of it as a kind of “terrorism”.

    Similarly, when a group of White students in a redneck town hang a noose from the “White-only tree”, that is a racist act. It was meant to terrorize.

    However, when a pissed-off Black student reacts by beating up on a random White kid, that is a bigoted act, committed by a single asshole out of misplaced anger. (Unless you have some other evidence of real racism, like all the Black kids at the school hanging “Kill Whitey” signs from the other trees.)

    Therefore, a leader of the Republican Party who distributes a recording of a song with racial slurs directed at the President-elect as a means of furthering his political ambitions in the Party is committing a racist act, because he is officially representing the institution of the GOP and promoting his career in that institution.

    On the other hand, the bigoted professor is unlikely to be able to use his bigotry as a means of obtaining a teaching position at the college.

    There are some semanticists who say that “Black on White racism” is inherently impossible in the USA, because Black people do not have the institutional power – not in business, politics or academia – to be able to foment institutional bigotry (eg. racism) as policy. But I’m not sure I’d go that far myself.

    If you are gonna stand there and look me in the eye with a straight face and say you cannot even theoretically understand that the term “Magic Negro” might be racially insensitive in 2008 and that to use it to mock a black man in the United States today might honestly fall into the category of racism, or at least racial bigotry, if you are going to say that anyone who is offended by the mocking use of the phrase “Magic Negro” must be feigning outrage for nothing but political gain then you are feigning stupidity for political gain. If you do not feel that calling African Americans “Negroes” is a racial epithet, then let me ask you two things. First, why is this term not in broad usage anymore? What caused it to fall out of favor? And second, I assume you would have no problem wandering through a predominantly black urban community and using the term “Negro” repeatedly in conversations with the denizens of that community. If you are unwilling to do so, it certainly seems to me that you have undermined your primary argument…

    Therefore, he won’t interact with black folk as human beings, but he will come fling poo on a liberal blog’s comments section because there’s no danger of any of us kicking his ass.

    Poor Troofie. So locked into his adolescent fantasies and filled with hate for minorities and academics. Probably shatter his world to find out I am actually a reasonably popular professor and that my ethnicity and gender classes fill up pretty quickly (gender filled in a week). Probably can’t grasp that I worked my way through college and graduate school with a whole series of really shitty jobs that paid the rent and tuition and books or that I worked my way through graduate school as a single father. It would shock him to learn that most of my friends are not academics, but include a range of professionals and blue collar folks.

    They’re very hardcore about the no-ban policy, but we did have a lively debate during the annieangel wars. Back when we fought from trenches with onions tied to our belts. But I digress.

    You very much should email them about your feelings. You should also, in said emails, explain your scheme for making available enough data to killfile someone who keeps changing their screen name.

    My partner and I had a roommate this past summer, and I’ll confess I don’t like the guy (anymore). It probably didn’t help that he was my partner’s ex’s new boyfriend, and well, I’m just kinda glad that whole thing is over now. Anyhoo, he has his masters’ in anthropology or something like that and is going for his Ph.D. For someone of his educational background, he says some rather racist, classist, etc. sorts of things. I have this theory that he just says those things because he enjoys being a dick, but one of the things he said that stuck with me was that the native tribes who were native to New York State and the eastern U.S. in general were not “real” civilizations, implying that those from the Southwest were. He is from that area (L.A.—and he talks like a fucking valley girl) and wants to go back, so I suppose he’s biased. But yeah, since your area of interest is the exact opposite, I thought you might enjoy that story.

    So, when I was young, maybe 8-11, I was a funny looking white kid, and pretty small for my age. No heart problems, but I had bronchial asthma pretty bad.

    When going to school, I was beaten up by a bunch of larger, older white kids who as their sole justification for beating me up was because I was funny looking and smaller than them.

    The clear anecdote from this is that white people are monsters and that someone needs to put a stop to them and their kind before they kill somebody.

    Or, y’know, something about how children are bastards and pick on the weak and small because they can.

    But hey, why make it an issue of strength and power when we can boil it down into a justification for racists to continue acting racist? After all, that bigotry won’t go supporting itself.

Just to set the record straight, the Indian societies of the Southeast at the time of contact were probably the largest, most powerful, and most complex north of Mexico (think the backwoods poor cousins of the Aztecs and you would not be far off).

I just looked for “13 year old heart patient mugged”. Couldn’t find it. Don’t know if its real and I just couldn’t find it, or he’s exaggerated the story (shocker), or whatever.

    Actually, Matt, the real test is whether people not on shrooms can understand you.

And I’ve been on the other end of that equation whilst trip-sitting and grudgingly have to agree with the squares. I think it’s like Modern Drunkard Magazine‘s rule: “If you think you’re slurring a little, you’re slurring a lot. If you think you’re slurring a lot, you’re not speaking English.”

    “Dobbers”? Don’t believe I’ve heard that one. The Urban Dictionary lists it as either a powerful yet nevertheless unidentified psychoactive drug, which sounds like fun, or slang for female breasts, which does too, to be totally honest. There’s also a slang dictionary entry that says a “dobber” is one who “dobs”, that is, snitches to the authorities, which doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

    I think more likely it’s because you were in Frankfurt. In all seriousness, I don’t think that’s all that uncommon. I know a lot of people who start speaking in second or third languages when really drunk. Hell, I’ve been told I’ve spoken entirely in Yiddish and Hebrew (or Spanish) while blacked out, which is strange, because the best I can muster in any of those languages while sober is a rusty vocabulary and an untenably slow understanding of the syntax.

    Matt T.,

    That is scary. I’ve sometimes wondered if my astronomy major is really just an excuse to go to class and do my work trashed. My, er, highest GPA semester so far was the one when I finally gave up on separating work and play and went to class sober all of one day — which prompted my professors to think I was on something because I was so off my game.

    Snoghagen,

    Yeah, I’m as baffled as you are.

  253. Andrew A. Gill, SLS said,

    December 29, 2008 at 7:28

    OK. Here’s the deal.

    “Magic Negro” is a term for a particular type of stereotype about black people. It is prima facie racist. Just ask Spike Lee, who brought the term into popular usage.

    A bunch of white people have a problem, and the Magic Negro comes and solves it. Uncle Remus, the guy from The Shining, the guy from The Green Mile, Bagger Vance…

    Now, Negro itself isn’t necessarily inherently offensive. The United Negro College Fund, for example. You could say that Blacky McBlackenstein is a scary black negro who is evil because he’s black–and a Negro. For the purposes of this argument, that’s not necessarily racist. I’d probably ask you some questions if you said that and it would take a lot to convince me that that’s not racist, but Magic Negro does not require similar thought.

    It’s simply a term for a particular type of racist stereotype. It’s used either to label a racist stereotype or to to be racist.

    I don’t have a position on banning racist trolls, it’s up to the proprietors. But when the troll morphs multiple times, then it’s time for some cleanin’ up. KF-evading trolls were a staple of Usenet, and we don’t get the tools (KF by IP addy) here that we do/did over there. Ergo, it’s a responsible course for the proprietors to ban any constantly morphing trolls.

    I know a lot of people who start speaking in second or third languages when really drunk.
    In the interests of full disclosure, I should admit that I learned some German when I was young, since my grandmother — from the old country — insisted on teaching me a basic lexicon of unspeakably foul German oaths, in case I ever encountered anyone who’d once belonged to the SS. This means that (1) I will probably never be granted an audience with the Panzerpope; and (2) I can’t afford to get completely drunk when in Germany, in case of ill-timed flashbacks to that early vocabulary.

    Funny how nobody has mentioned the real elefante en el cuarto. “Barack the Magic Negro” is not as problematic for the RNC as “The Star Spanglish Banner” (no doubt sung in a Speedy Gonzalez pidgin). The GOP lost the black vote decades ago, but the pundits always insisted that the Latino vote was up for grabs.

    Hell, Lou Dobbers (couldn’t resist) and Pat “America’s Racist Uncle” Buchanan could go on CNN and sing a duet of “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom”, and it wouldn’t convince a single Latino to vote Republican.

    Ooh, that’s weird, given that German has all those tricky glottal catches and 17-syllable words. I tend to speak Japanese, which has far more vowels and is a lot easier on the throat.

    And I’ve noticed that the shithead Troll seems to have been erased from the page of history. Bit of a pity, because I was looking forward to slapping down the pathetic wankstain, but overall much nicer: he’s a boring, ignorant tosspot and we’re better off without him.

    Well, OK, technically he does posthumously save the surviving Torrences by having brought the only working Snowcat to the hotel. But I’d say he’s better described as an example of the ‘sacrificial negro’ who dies in order to save the film’s white stars, and it’s a phenomenon that’s so common in Hollywood movies that it’ll probably take you about three seconds to think of an example of your own.

    December 29, 2008 at 15:46

    WereBear – that’s funny. Other examples of such fourth-wall-breaking include Michael Moore’s Canadian Bacon, in which a black character makes reference to poor ol’ Scatman in order to highlight the limited life expectancy of African-Americans in such cinematic adventures, and Deep Blue Sea, in which LL Cool J’s character makes a similar point; in the latter example the director/writers play on this to produce a genuine surprise by having LL survive and the pretty white woman become shark fodder. And then there’s Starship Troopers, where Verhoven pointedly hurls every non-white character into the meat grinder before closing on the grinning Aryan teens skipping off into the sunset.

    An interesting counter-example is The Matrix, which presents a ‘sacrificial white guy’ but obviously with more of a ‘white Jesus’ angle. The majority of the supporting cast (among the good guys at any rate) and the population of Zion consists of non-white people, and it is these people that Neo sacrifices himself to save. The starkest difference is in the way that while the ‘sacrificial negroes’ are mourned only very briefly (or, in the case of a grim piece of work like The Shining, not at all) in their movies, Keanu is of course borne aloft by fleets of technological angels and remembered for all time as the saviour of the human race.

    Melvin Van Peebles’ Classified X is a good documentary about this sort of thing. Or you can sum it up in Chuck D’s line “First they’re guilty, now they’re gone”, but perhaps with the addendum “Now they’re back – to save the white guy”.

    It solves the studio execs’ problem by satisfying an audience that would be uncomfortable with the book’s ending. Teh scary black man forms a familial bond with teh white lady and her son. He basically adopts both of them, but try explaining that on film in the 1980′s.

    There’s an odd sci-fi novel called Sewer, Gas and Electric by Matt Ruff in which one of the major features of the near-future earth is based on a similar idea. Ruff points to a different stereotype of black people in the movies, the Amusing Black Man. He noticed that, for some reason, Die Hard had five Amusing Black Men in it, where most movies limit themselves to one. He decided to exaggerate that to the point that in his book, nearly all black people on earth have been killed by a pandemic and replaced with Stepin Fetchit-like robots.

    The book also gives Ayn Rand a bunch of shit. There’s an essay by the author here about the book, for those interested.

    The Die Hard series has had surviving black sidekicks in three of the four. I wonder why Willis got all racist in the last one? I mean, unless you want to count the swarthy FBI agent or Tuvok, I mean, the DHS dude.

    Well, there’s a great line in (I think) the first one, relating to the two FBI officers, one white, one black, both called Johnson. The white one receives a call on his mobile and says “Hello, this is Agent Johnson. [Pause for reply]… No, the other one.” Which does at least show some awareness of the stereotyping.

    I’d have to disagree with Ruff on that. I’d only call two characters Amusing Black Men.

    The limo driver, definitely. And the black cop, at least initially.

    But the computer expert was primarily there to be the Techno Genius Guy, whose purpose it was to show you that the criminals were exceptionally up-to-date and therefore extra dangerous. Techno Genius Guys’ race doesn’t matter, and Techno Genius Guys always crack jokes to show you how at ease they are as they capably perform their incredibly complex tasks.

    The agents Johnson were Overbearing Government Guys. FBI agents are often used in that role. Race is as immaterial for Overbearing Government Guys as it is for Techno Genius Guys. Besides, Amusing Black Men are supposed to show lots of emotion and black Agent Johnson was pretty much flat affect.

    I don’t recall the SWAT team member and the thorn bush.

  297. actor212 said,

    December 29, 2008 at 21:53

    Snorg,

    I agree with your assessment, but here’s the thing: Amusing doesn’t have to mean comic relief. Al, the cop, was definitely amusing as he kept McClain’s spirits up. The Johnsons, while OGG, as you point out, were funny just for being the cariactures they were. TGG, true, didn’t have to be black, but he was, and my suspicion is he was cast black because Willis and McTiernan wanted a diverse gang of crooks, so there’s definitely an (off-script) racism involved.

    I’m not sure about that. Black Agent Johnson frequently looks at White Agent Johnson like he thinks the latter is a total douche, and I believe even calls him a ‘shithead’ or something similar under cover of chopper noise. White Johnson is portrayed as kind of a wang, while Black Johnson is the cool one.

    But you’ll notice that all the hostages in Die Hard were oppressed rich white folks, except the Asian taskmaster boss (who gets killed) making his people stay for an office party on Christmas Eve and the pregnant Latina, who’s dropping babies left and right.

    I agree with you that Ruff stretched the definition to fit the others. But I can see how, after repeated viewings, Die Hard might lead to the concept of a world where all the black people were grinning robots.

    It might take the help of some pot brownies, but the germ of the idea is there.

    So – troofie morphed into IMDB.com? I guess it would have to be the free-for-all comments sections, not the actual useful bits. Those comment sections are right up there with YouTube for sloping-browed bullshit quotient.

    It solves the studio execs’ problem by satisfying an audience that would be uncomfortable with the book’s ending. Teh scary black man forms a familial bond with teh white lady and her son. He basically adopts both of them, but try explaining that on film in the 1980’s.

    I had always heard that Kubrick knew fanboys would probably go into paroxysms of rage over the free-and-easy approach he took to putting the film on screen (I always thought they needed to revive the “Inspired By” credit for that film) and so decided he’d go ahead and REALLY fuck with them by killing off the film’s ostensible hero.

  307. kiki said,

    On Predator II – I don’t know for sure, but I’d bet dollars to donuts that Glover’s character was originally written for Mel Gibson. He has an Irish name, ‘Mike Harrigan’, and is a crazy loner etc etc who is basically Gibson’s character in Lethal Weapon. Until you ‘get used’ to the movie (or even watch it a couple of times) the part doesn’t really seem to suit Glover, and I think that’s why.

    Overambitious casting, perhaps – but maybe the studio also noticed that, with Gibson in the starring role, the movie would’ve featured a golden-maned Aryan superman cutting a swathe through hordes of Jamaican and Latino gang members. And while that’s the kind of thing that would have Truthy or the Moran bespoiling their pants quicker than their most vivid self-created Mel Gibson fantasy could possibly manage, most people would probably find it a bit distasteful.

    Shit, I spend one day shrooming and listening to music, and I miss all the movie fun. (In my defense, it was on a $5,000 pair of electromagnet speaker drivers and, no offense, but you fuckers don’t have shit on that.)

    kiki,
    Totally agree with your take on the Johnsons in Die Hard. I think the line you’re thinking of is something like:
    White Johnson: “Yee-haw! Just like fuckin’ Saigon!”
    Black Johnson: “I was in junior high, dick.”
    I actually think there’s a bit of deliberate playing with stereotypes going on there, if only because they’re listed in the credits as “Big Johnson” and “Little Johnson” (and the black one is Little Johnson).

    Righteous Bubba,
    I was initially ashamed to actually know what kiki was talking about with Predator II, but at least I remember Die Hard. Yeah, it’s shit, but it’s entertaining shit assuming a BAC >0.1, and way better than most other Christmas movies.

    Actually, speaking of Die Hard, has anyone else noticed the common theme in all of those movies that the bad guys always appear to be (and actively promote the notion that they are) political terrorists but always turn out to just be money-hungry crooks? And that government counterterrorism people are always either in on it (2 and 4) or supremely incompetent (1 and 3)?

    Everyone should probably just ignore my blather — I’m interested in hearing more about these underwear heist movies.

    I’d make a quibble about Die Hard 2 having “political terrorists”. One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter and while I may consider the military assisting in a coup d’etat “terrorism,” I’m not sure that Willis or Harlin did.

  337. RyRy Cooter said,

    December 30, 2008 at 17:21

    True enough, actor212. I guess it would be more accurate to say that the goals of the villains are made to appear political (in 2 it would be freeing the Noriega stand-in) when they are actually monetary. Though I guess in 2 releasing bizarro Noriega was actually one of their goals. I believe this only serves to reinforce my point.
