Are Hollywood execs racist, sexist? Probably.

It will be interesting to see how it plays out in the media.

Is almost everyone in the world racist?  Probably, to some extent.

Anyway, you don’t have to be black to like The Butler and 12 Years a Slave.  They were quality movies.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

I think the trashing of my girl, Angelina Jolie, was more offensive than the one-ups-manship banter on who could name movies with primary black actors.

Yes, there is racism in most groups—sexism, too, and the need to put others down in order to feel confidence—even false confidence.

It will play put in the media as it always does, it will cause some noise and then it will dissipate.
