Hidden Racist Messages in Hollywood

This was an interesting perspective, and I believe she has a very important point to make. Hollywood has a history of this trend of making black/brown people helpless and in need of being saved, ie The Help, Avatar, Invictus, The Prince of Persia etc. I enjoyed her view, it is refreshing because many are not aware of the hidden racist messages in Hollywood films. It took reading an article years ago that made me realize movies are not as innocent and they send us these hidden messages about people that are not white. It’s a deliberate act and it’s racist.
*The only point I didn’t like was the reference about interracial dating of the actors etc. I get the feeling she doesn’t like interracial love. I think it takes away from the power of her argument on the racist messages in films, which is the real issue.*
