The media only considers it a "hate crime" and "intolerance" if you target a minority.

The science behind "marketing" works on many levels, be it commercials for life insurance, tv drama, the nightly news, or race based profiteers such as Al Sharpton, steers the mood of this nation and it's end result is proving quite deadly to some.

White men are also Jack Bauer, Superman, Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, the guys from The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Captain Kirk . . .

You get to be all of those too. I'm not diminishing the stupid white man thing, or the "dumb dad/husband" thing, because it's annoying too. I rarely watch mainstream TV, except for Fox News and The Blaze.

This too and the worst part is if white people tried to form an organization it would instantly get labeled as a Nazi or white supremacist group.

I guess in this case, the scrutinizing would come from the difficulties one must take at finding news reports of black on white violence, because as I perceive it, when the roles are reversed, the entire World hears about it whether they're looking for it or not.
Link Posted: 9/27/2013 7:28:11 AM EST
David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien . . .

The cast of "Firefly" was mostly white. The hero in many TV shows (last I checked) is usually white, and he's usually not portrayed as a buffoon.

Take some comfort in that. I'm not kidding. I think we as a society should be able to accept anyone (male, female, white, black, hispanic) who does a good job and I hope that will increase. But still, Hollywood knows that the public wants Superman to be a white man, same with Spiderman, Captain America, and so forth. That isn't changing anytime soon.

We must use vastly different news outlets. I don't see any more undertones of racism (either way, really) in crime reports here in Houston. Nor did I see them in any of the other metroplis sized cities I lived in, nor any of the small towns, nor either of the two other countries I spent years living in.

Like I said, if you're hyper-vigilant and looking for slights against "your kind" at every turn, you'll find them, whether or not they actually exist. Race-baiters of every hue having been using that tactic to great effect for centuries.

And, again, if you need popular culture to "stick up" for your brand, it's obviously got at least something a little wrong with it to start with. Good shit sells itself.

No, that can't be it. It's vastly more plausible that the entirety of popular culture hates all white men, including all the white men in popular culture.

People have accidentally shot themselves.

Basically anything you see on TV about stupid men has already happened to someone here and there is a thread about it.

Obviously there is a lot of stupid people in any race. America is majority white so its clear there will be so shortage of stupid white people.
But for some reason it is OK to make fun of white people, and bash them but not the other races which have at least an equal level of stupid amongst them.
Why is that ? That is the point of the question.

Again, let's look at how Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Capt. America, Jack Bauer, John McClane, Captain Kirk, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Indiana Jones, and so forth and so on are portrayed by white men.

When all these guys are recast as transgendered asian hispanics, then we can start to wonder . . . but last I checked they're still being played by white men. And in a very favorable light!

A fair point. And as for the shows that portray white men as buffoons, they largely exist because white men are willing to watch them anyway, so generally speaking we white men have ourselves to blame in that regard...except I don't even have cable or dish TV anyway.

Thank you.

Yeah I don't watch hardly any new TV shows these days (except for my telenovelas, for help with Spanish comprehension) and so I miss out on all of that.

If it bothers some guys that much, stop watching TV and subscribe to Hulu or Netflix and pick and choose which shows to watch.
