Just in time for the Oscars, the genius team at Last Week Tonight with John Oliver basically just dropped the most definitive video about why the Academy Awards are so white. From now on, anyone who brings this issue up will now need to just refer to this Oliver bit as the gold standard. Watch and enjoy.
Last Week Tonight (HBO): Hollywood Whitewashing
With the The Academy Awards coming up, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver asks: Hollywood whitewashing…how is this still a thing?
Posted by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on Tuesday, February 23, 2016
Answer to the titular question:
“This” is still a thing because Hollow-Wood is not the place to go to for intelligence, social conscience or historical accuracy.
It IS the place to go to for the continuation of stereo-types, negatively-attributed “qualities” like being “articulate” (for blacks), being a hard-worker for Mexicans in lettuce fields or the place to go to for media cartoons that re-assure the majority of English-speaking, white America that all will be well as long as 16 y/o blonde shiksas are getting off the busses at the Greyhound bus depot in Hollywood to star in movies for guys with names that end in “berg”, “witz”, “ski” , “feld” and “ner”.
“It” will always be a “thing” in a place where mediocrity, political cowardice and the fastest path to a quick buck is priority number one.
And if you want to see what political correctness and cowardice REALLY look like, just tune-in on the new SUPERGIRL series on TV…in it, “Jimmy Olson” who was the proto-type of white nerd in the 50s is NOW a buffed black guy with a penchant for an idiot blonde in a cape.
The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games
The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/jadwal.html were called Marrano, ‘http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/promo.html Accursed Ones,’ and there http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/panduan.html were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their http://raksasapoker.com/ sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
