THIS JUST IN: Hollywood Suit Does Something Admirable.

WILLIAM MORRIS AGENCY HAS DROPPED MEL GIBSON

In 2006, then partner and now CEO of WME, Ari Emmanuel, said in a piece he wrote: “I wish Mel Gibson well in dealing with his alcoholism, but alcoholism does not excuse racism and anti-Semitism. Now we know the truth. And no amount of publicist-approved contrition can paper it over. People in the entertainment community, whether Jew or gentile, need to demonstrate that they understand how much is at stake in this by professionally shunning Mel Gibson and refusing to work with him, even if it means a sacrifice to their bottom line. There are times in history when standing up against bigotry and racism is more important than money.”

Apparently, the only reason Mel was kept on as a client after his anti-semetic remarks in 2006 is because he was represented by Ed Limato, vice president of William Morris Agency, who kicked the bucket on June 3rd. Looks like Emmanuel fired him as soon as he could. Good for him.

…I have a naggin little question, though. I wonder if the remarks in 2006 had been about “dirty negroes” and not “greedy jews” would Ari Emmanuel have bothered to write about it, and would Mel Gibson be without representation now? Something to ponder…

I Miss British Telly…

Love this skit. Little Miss Jocelyn is pretty funny. However, she does rely on stereotypes entirely too much. She’s a little over the top and it can get offensive, especially because she usually portrays whites as respectable and calm. But other than that… HARDY HAR HAR!!

Jocelyn Jee Esien is the first black woman in either the UK or USA to be given her own sketch show.

Dave LaChappelle Uses Black Man As Pedestal

6 Jul


Lady Gaga’s photoshoot (2010) with LaChappelle proves to be as unoriginal as her music. The “dutiful black slave risking his life for Miss” thing has so been done.

And yes, that’s Kanye.

And now it’s time to play…

WHAT’S THERESA WATCHING INSTEAD OF WRITING HER SCRIPT?

These chicks got some classy cooters. No meat curtains!

Oh SNAP!


Gina Gershon is so good, she’s both a whore AND a bitch!

I have to give a shout out to my favorite character, Molly.

She’s the black girl (adorable!) who lets that nasty wainch, Polly, stay with her. She’s punished, of course, for being smart, black, and respectable, by being brutally raped by three men; including Andrew Carver, a singer she idolizes and innocently has a drink with. After she is slapped and punched in the nose, her panties are ripped off and we get to see the whole bloody mess, including a shot of Andrew licking the blood off of Molly’s face while she’s getting raped from behind by one of his bouncers. Polly kicks the shit out of Andrew at the end, but unless she gave him “a broken nose and vaginal tears”, we ain’t square.

Don’t worry, Molly. One day we’ll have black female leads with sexual autonomy. YOU WILL BE AVENGED!!

The Adventures of Uncle Ruckus

I don’t know if any of you have heard about the infamous Cîroc vodka casting call, pictured here:

Apparently, only light skinned African Americans need apply… and whites and latina’s, of course. I’m not surprised, but I am glad that this is out in the open so that we have a solid reason to boycott them. Puff the magic Daddy released a statement on Twitter, clearing himself of all wrongdoing, “FOR the record people I LOVE WOMEN OF ALL SHADES!!! I DON’T DISCRIMINATE!!! DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE!!! Now back to the POSITIVITY!!!”

Cîroc also released a lie statement. I’ll help you read between the lines: “CIROC Vodka has nothing whatsoever to do with this inappropriate and offensive casting call (or does, whatever), which was done without the brand’s knowledge or consent (is this really the first time you’ve caught us doing this?). We are currently investigating how this occurred (which means we are masturbating with lubbed hundred dollar bills until this whole things blows over). CIROC Vodka has created a brand that defines sophisticated celebration for all consumers (white people), and in no way condones this practice (we do,actually).”

While researching this, I found that a lot of people (mostly black men) support Mr. Combs and point to ads that feature him with brown and dark skinned black women. He does appear in ads that feature darker black women, but in the few I could find, I noticed that he is never touching or looking at them.

 

But let’s get back to some of that “positivity” Diddy was speaking of…
