Have you ever seen white people nerd-rage about the fact that rap music is mainstream?
Did you see the honest anger that Idris Elba was cast as Heimdall for "Thor"?

It's the same in the UK or at least i think so. It's considered offensive to sing 'bah bah black sheep' which for those who don't know is a popular nursery rhyme.

I do find it intersting with American society. The blacks have the BET network, School and Universities for black students only, scholorships for black students only, music awards for black artists only and thats seen as a right for them because they are black. They can racially abuse a white person without recorse.
Yet, if you were to have a tv network called the White Enternatinment Network, they would be up in arms or the racist network, same would go for White only schools, universities, scholarship and entertainment awards. A white person has a dig at a black person and they get labeled a member of the klan. You can't have it both ways, you want equality, then stop doing everything to create a racial divide.
I'm not racist in anyway, but I am a realist. If you want to call me a white !@#$% (among other things) then I am going to call you a black !@#$% fair is fair.
If anyone takes offence to this post I really don't care, it needs to be said.

I think people tend to forget why these colleges were created or why BET was created. Although, most black people, including myself, can not stand BET.
IS there really a need for a WET channel when most TV shows do not contain black actors or actresses?

The way I see it. its a rebound effect of all the "government protection" anti-prejudice polices that create paranoia amoung the "unprotected" (whites) and enables an disenfrancised ethnic group Afro-American and Latino groups to feel safe and protected,,with special allowances. How so you might ask, Have you ever worked for the U.S. governement in any capacity.. you are practically threaten by pre-employment programs to include EEO and sexual harrassment and its always been a black female who in my opirion had a threatening ...over bearing additude. To even voice an opinion in one of these pre-emploment classes could threaten your hiring process. The rebound effect of these governement sponsored programs is a residual "hate" and second class standing for whites who would like an equal opportunity to work too.
I have to agree here. Just one more example of political correctness. gone wild. Political correctness is one of the major divisive factors in the US. How can people honestly say that casting a black person to play a Norse god makes any sense at all? It is purely a case of pandering. On the other hand, Natalie Portman's role could have gone to a black female with no such issue. Samuel Jackson taking Nick Fury's role is not much of an issue imo, but a Norse god?????????
Casting a black guy to play a role of a Nordic god described as "the whitest of the gods" is quite rage-inducing..
LOL, Yeah I actually have to laugh at that. Jesus was/is a Jew. How can people look past that?

It's not different to having blue eyed blonde haired white men play Jesus in these biopic movies of his life, it's a movie, it's supposed to be art and even then it was based off of a comic book, it's no big deal.
