    at the end of 2009 Hollywood has pushed hard to propagandize the European as the hero of Black folks;

    hollywood and the white man's burden...

    right on,but what else would we expect of them and if you think that's arrogance just take a look at some science fiction movies,why white hollywood is so stuck on themselves that they won't grasp the notion of even a more advanced race of beings defeating them[independence day]which could've been the best sci-fi movie ever was reduced to mere propaganda for white power,so i'm not surprised when we are used as pawns[i'm angry]but not surprised,that's why blacks with any kind of clout and money in hollywood should get together and form a studio for black stories to be filmed[i'm not saying don't work with whites but we should have the final say]why do you think that back in the day[united artist was formed?]so until we get it together and get some control we will continue to see whites in shining armor coming to rescue us[po black folk].

    I hope that we there will be unity against this. I do believe that there have been some great efforts to combat this and I hope that we don't give up. the sad part though is the kind of Blacks that support 'the white heroes [heroines] are the kind of obstacles that have to be dealt with too in order to win.

    it is sad, and this is not to attack hip hop, but they felt they could go back to the old stereotypes of Black folks as they did from Birth of a Nation to the Mantan Moerland, and Steppin Fetchit movies
