crmanager, I have two points to share:
1)In this bashing of liberals, why do you have to bring African Americans into your argument? Racism is a universal problem. Or is it convenient for
you to bring up the stereotypes of Stepin Fetchit and Jack Benny's valet, Rochester (Eddie Anderson)? Yes, Hollywood did do films with racist
stereotypes. So, I will concede you that point in your favor. But it wasn't because the movie colony represented liberalism. Racism supercedes any
political group, ethnicity or race. Perhaps the negative depiction of people of color was in the eye of the directors, producers and writers of a
film project. Not because any of these people represented a certain political affiliation.
2)There are many conservatives in Hollywood as well. Tony Danza. Tom Selleck. Arnold Schwartzenegger. Bo Derek. Charleton Heston. Chuck Connors.
John Wayne. Shannen Doherty. And of course, your favorite, Ronald Reagan. Not to forget, Nancy Davis Reagan. Tell me, are they also implicated in
your attack on Hollywood?
On the race issue: I will give you benefit of the doubt and post two sites that will educate you on both Stepin Fetchit and Eddie Anderson so that you
will never ever think again that they were reduced to "just stereotypes". You have no idea how hard it was for African Americans to be in show
business at all. And these two took a lot from Hollywood regardless of any political affiliation. In fact, they both paved the way for African
American actors and actresses after them.
With that being said, you still haven't defined why "conservativism" is good. Or, what, in your mind, a "conservative is".
