Like I always say, white people really, really, really, really love each other

And they love an audience to witness it.



So I went to see The Best Man Holiday and this shit popped up in the trailers. My friend and I kept waiting for something to happen (per the ominous music), but all we kept seeing were white people fucking and white people rushing to protect and protest the white girl's tender and fragile innocence...despite ample evidence to the contrary.

Whenever I hear that so-and-so in [insert brown country here] wants to cast white people, or thinks something magical will happen once they manage to insert themselves into this type of fantasy, I don't get upset or offended - I get amused.

The point of this vanillacentric fantasy is just that: it's a vanillacentric fantasy and any brown presence in the lead would ruin it.  I remember when Rain wistfully commented about how things would improve in the biz if they could have an Asian man in place of the white boy here in a film like this.  Fangirls on this blog resented Rain's comment, while I laughed aloud.

White people wouldn't want to see that shit.  They didn't care for it in Dragon, or Rising Sun, Showdown in Little Tokyo, or Kiss of the Dragon, Shanghai Kiss, Tekken, or The Way of the Warrior for that matter.  They don't want to show the white girl next door gettin' bent over sixty ways from Sunday by a virile Asian man and liking it.  They don't want to show that shit; they don't want to see that shit.

Fuck...these are the same people who don't like watching Asian men touch black women.

And for all their disparaging chatter about black women, these are the same people who helped make Scandal damn near - if not - #1 in America by tuning in every Thursday and watching the Prez and Olivia Pope go at it doggy-style.

But in the end, they always come back to the above shown fantasy because it's their ideal scenario.  It's their first choice; to them, this is a prime example of things going the white right way.

Good God...could we please get a scorching hot Blasian flick already?  I need something to cleanse my palate after watching this steaming pile of horseshit.

  2. You got it. Which is why I pretty much gave up on Hollywood. I'll admit it, if there's Hollywood movie I might want to watch I download it or find it on the internet for free a stream it. However, I'll buy DVD's for movies coming out of Korea, for instance.

  3. Let's not forget, even the mere notion of our black & Latin@ brothers in arms with a white woman sends white folk foaming at the proverbial mouth, and more often than not unleashes an epic storm of butthurtitude proportions. Ooh white people, y u so messed up?

    ...at the risk of stooping to their level (that is, the genocidal level) I'll make a post on white people. What say you, sister Ankhesen? XP

  4. If I was sitting there waiting to see Best Man Holiday and this came up...I would have definitely said, "What is this ish?" It is always the innocent white girl that decides to embark on the relationship but if it were a black girl or any other origin besides white, it may have all been about the innocent girl being raped and then the story begins. Like no one else can be innocent but them. :/

  5. Vanillacentricism is why Hollywood is dying a slow painful death.

    It's one thing for White society to get resentful when we intermix with one of their own, but when..as you mentioned.. Black women are paired with non Black guys white women grit their teeth in anger and White men does the same. It always have to be about them.

    I thinking about TV series like Scandal,Sleepy Hollow. Like you said,Scandal is a major hit because of a Black women lead ,with a great storyline and the great chemistry of the characters on the show. The same with SH(if they don't let Abbie be put in the back burner for Katrina). These days, it seems that not having Black leads can be detrimental to Hollywood.Look at what happened to Taranji P.Henson chacter in Person of interest. Soon as she died off the show a lot of people ...including me....haven't/isn't watching it anymore. Man there were far more people saying that they weren't going to watch it than watch.

    I would love to see more POC/POC pairings on TV/movies but I think they would be slow in doing it because it's supposed to be about them. Abbie has a chance being involved with Luke, Andy and Ichabod.Fox producers of SH said that they likelihood of Ichabod and Abbie being romantically involved is not likely (Yeah right!), and Luke is supposed to be her ex.The only unattached guy is Andy but if it were to come light, I think that romance betweem them would be short lived . It would be too much of Black women being pulled away from them. Look at what was did to Danny and Lacey in Twisted. They just couldn't deal this hot guy romancing a stunning Black girl and they just wanted to mess it up. Unless they're,they're not right.

      Excellent observations.

      Sometimes I think white people would just prefer it if POC were simply asexual creatures of convenience. It's like they just can't ditch their mentality from the slavery era. They twitch when we're paired with them and then twitch when we're paired among ourselves. They're bitter when we're part of their projects and then livid when we go off and do our own thing.

    3. "They're bitter when we're part of their projects and then livid when we go off and do our own thing"

      I'd drive myself into a nice solid stroke trying to figure that one out. Makes no sense.

  7. Even TV guide feels that Abbie character is vital to the success of SH. It would be a very bone headed decision for the producers to focus more on Katrina. They really need to pay attention to reports like this. I was reading some about Katia Winters character. All I kept seeing was about her being sexy. She may be sexy to a lot of guys, but the stars of the show ....as admitted by FOX and TV guide.. is Tom and Nicole. Beauty isn't nothing when you have great chemistry on it. It tells you something when it far surpasses the Katrina.. lol!

    1. There was also Ninja Assassin, but the Blasian factor was merely implied.
