Racist director and racist movies

In the Life page of ST today, director Pierre Morel was accused of being racist by casting all his villains as Asians or Pakistanis or Eastern Europeans. His latest film From Paris With Love also have non whites as villians, including Chinese or Vietnamese I think. It is so funny really, to accuse a director for being racist just because he casts the heroes as Anglo Saxons and the badies as non whites. The non whites should be grateful for the roles and the doles he is offerring them. Come to think of it, they should go back to the 50s and 60s when movies were so wholesome and non racial. I particularly enjoy the great movies of how the West were won, with American cavalries always arriving in time to kill the bad Red Indians and save the European immigrants, their families and little children from being slaughtered. And they always have happy endings too, with the Red Indians either shot or fleeing into the prairies or having their wigwams burnt to the ground. Let's have more soldiers and Red Indians movies, more remakes and in grander scales. I am sure no one will complain about racism. And the Red Indian actors and actresses will be most happy with the jobs and doles. Provided they don't cast Europeans as Red Indians.

Isn't it funny too that the whites produce films that invariably cast non whites as villians while Easterners' films doesn't repay the compliment.The latter should realise that not all whites are saints!

There is some progess though in terms of racial equality in the US. Nowadays putting an Afro American as President of the United States, Mayor or Attorney General is the fashion. How about a Chinese President, Mayor, attorney general and this is my favourite dream, Director of the CIA, FBI and Chief of Staff US military.

Tan Ku Ku hor.

American cannot be headed by a non-white. Look at its' over two century old history, there has never been a few percent non-whites in its' cabinet.
As for the Present Black President, he is been elected to clean up the shits created by his immediate predecessor. However, he(Obama) only has lots of useless ideals. He can't save America from further decays, tat's for sure.

Mediacorp is a good place to find out what will happen when Singapore becomes ethnically cleansed!

The latest drama - the Pupil describes the only courtrooms in Singapore without significant Indian presence!

Hi Paul, welcome to the blog. You made a very pertinent observation. How can a TV serial on lawyers without Indian lawyers. Who wrote the script huh?

As for Obama, it is God's way of telling a joke. A black man to save the white men! A black sheep in a White House! More like Hollywood movie.

Amabo is a stand in for the real presidente of the United States......

President Mao whose time will come. How did he get into the White House? Well, he cashed in his 3 trillion $ casino chips and the house went bankrupt so the next best thing was to make him the CEO. The REAL ceo, not some stand in, talk only no action!

Hehe.

Corporate takeover by the biggest shareholder! A change of the board of directors.

Events are happening too fast and anything can blow up anytime. Toyota may go bankrupt if more lawsuits are taken against it.

Most of the European countries are like the US, under a mountain of debt but cleverly hidden by cooked accounting.

America is the most dangerous one as the debt is insurmountable. It is a matter of when the plug will be pulled.

Wally may know the date. Wally please let me know when it is coming.

Wally Buffet said...

The plug will not be pulled. Too much at stake. A cooked book can still be recyled into pulp, made into another book and recooked. So no worries. When the time comes, the calvary will also be there to make sure that there is no panic and we can all go back to making money.

In those days, killing Red Indians was a righteous thing to do. Nothing racist.

Hey Chin Ching Hua or whatever, there's pictures of a few birds and fishes on your blog post. Did you have them for lunch or dinner? Please clarify.

Thanks

Hey redbean,

you need to go back to your redbean or soyabean stall and sit quietly under the table with a cap on covering your gace and just continue to grind out more redbean paste.

How the fish in the world is killing red indians a righteous thing? That is the silliest thing I came across this week. Where did you get that impression? From watching those movies from the old west?
