White movie fans don’t care that actors and actresses are “diverse” and in roles that just don’t make sense to them. They don’t go to the movies. They just don’t watch them, or, at the very least they refuse to pay high ticket prices at the movies so they stay away. Movie attendance tanked and will continue to shrink as long as diversity and multiculturalism dominate the movie casting instead of believable plots and accurate casting.
The big losers will be stupid white actresses like Frances McDormond who put herself out of a lot of future roles because she refused to work unless her contract had a “diversity clause” in it. By so doing she made it harder for white bitches like her to get jobs and easier for the large factious herd of non-whites to replace them. The movies are more diverse, less believable and less attended. Way to go, stupids.
Taki Mag reports that back in 1999 Black, Asian, and Latino organizations agreed to cooperate to force the TV networks to diversify — or else. In January 2000, they lobbied Congress to regulate “inclusion” on TV the same way the government regulated children’s programming (at the time, the FCC mandated broadcasters provide three hours per week of educational children’s programming). The Coalition of 19 wanted the government to set a weekly quota of non-whites on TV.
It seemed as though there was no stopping this indivisible band of brothers. Or perhaps we should say bruthas, because by the end of the month, the NAACP had cut its own deal for black inclusion, leaving its brown and yellow comrades out in the cold. “No es bueno,” declared former U.S. representative Esteban Torres, the coalition’s lead Latino negotiator. “No es bueno indeed.”
In 2002 the coalition pretty much disbanded when the black representatives walked away after the Latino faction voted to bring The Mexican Grocers Association in as a member, because the treatment of Mexican grocers is, of course, inextricably tied to issues of television diversity.
The Coalition of 19 failed because, in the end, each victim group was interested only in gains for its own “kind.” They really did hate each other.
In today’s inclusion-rider movement, there’s a new wrinkle. The leaders aren’t people like Esteban Torres and Kweisi Mfume, but preening white A-list actresses who claim to be disenfranchised. The fact that white women are leading the fight this time will not stop the black and Latino factions from, once again, selfishly guarding their own interests. But it will certainly give them a common enemy to fight before they turn on each other. A rude awakening is in store for the white actresses who are currently (if unknowingly) committing career suicide by backing inclusion riders. As Hollywood salivates over the massive success of Black Panther (which, it should be noted, beat the pantsuit off the female-driven Tomb Raider at the box office two weeks ago), white actresses might just find themselves dispossessed after all. HaHaHa!
