More interesting than the link sounds....more poltical correctness gone mad in my mind. If we follow this trend, I might add, I think you should ban Pirates of the Caribbean as it depicts all South Americans as cannibals! (or wherever they were meant to be) ((not really my POV)).

I am so sick of this political correctness fad. It's an old book written back when people were insensitive about other cultures. Why can't people just take things at face value. This is like when I heard they were editing all the political incorrectness out of the old Johnny Quest cartoons. They should be left as is so people can see how our views have changed an evolved over time. Sand in your vagina much?

Oh wait is that SEXIST? Who cares.

There's a saying that goes "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it" I believe things like this book fall into that category.

Tia Dalma is definitely in “Magical Negro” territory. She’s overly willing to help the white characters, often for a smaller price than one might expect and even after Jack steals from her. She is exploited by the white characters, and the film offers no criticism for this. Rather, it’s intended to be funny. White people ripping off a black woman who is helping them? Totally hilarious! [/sarcasm]Furthermore, there was the treatment of Dalma’s sexuality. Hey, I’m all for sexuality. If it was just Dalma lusting after Will and Jack, I’d call her an honorary fan and be done with it. My problem is that her sexuality was also treated as a joke. The film made it perfectly clear that there was no way that Jack nor Will would actually be romantically interested in her. A Black woman thinking she is sexually/romantically desirable? Hahahaha! [/more sarcasm]

Cause, you know, back then white people would've totally trusted black women and not try to use them! [/sarcasm]

It's called historical accuracy. Get over it. You're taking sucha thing too seriously. You should be happy actually that despite all this about Tia, [spoiler]they made a black woman an almighty goddess[/spoiler]. >>


The things people get worked up about. It's just like the Iranians getting worked up over 300.

Um......Jack Sparrow stole from everybody not just that poor, exploited black woman. I swear people try so hard to be offended. Did the author of this tripe every stop to think that it's not the color of her skin they found unattractive, maybe it was those nasty teeth.

God forbid if we make anything historically accurate, somebody might get offended.

Ok, rant over for now.

Mmmmm Tasty!

As pertaining to that rant, I really don't think we should even begin to use the term 'Historically accurate' when pertaining to films like POTC and 300. That's the point; they're historically inaccurate cartoons for big-kids, and that's what's fun about them.

They said it's a joke that neither Jack nor Will would be interested in Tia Dalma... but when Tia Dalma was talking to Jack, I was under the impression that she was already totally tapping that. (And that maybe she was a little too much woman for him to handle. Most everyone seemed pretty threatened by her prowess.)

That was the exact impression I got too. Or that she was just too powerful for any of them to really handle, [spoiler]which turned out to be true~~~ 8D[/spoiler]

Anyways...

Ah man, I feel sorry for those two kids. sad.gif That's kinda sad that they were too busy with video games to take care of them....

Schoolgirl loses 'virginity ring' fight
Religionism anyone?

Personally I think not. The 'virginity ring' isn't a true symbol of the Christian faith. It's something mordern man and consumerism created. If Muslims aren't allowed to wear their headscarves to school, then this 'virginity ring' thing should definitely not be allowed.

Actually, they thought they were being 'racist'. XP

I saw the Virginity Ring story and thought about posting it but figured it wasn't crazy enough.

I'll say this tho: I think that whole rule is stupid, so I think she should be able to wear her ring and the Muslims should wear their headscarves. I don't see a point to banning jewelry, unless these kids are wearing outrageous bling that are either offensive, or just an eyesore. >.>

This jackass Michael Vick is from my hometown and the home where he was doing all the stuff to the dogs is right across the James River from where I live. If you read the indictment of all the specifics of the things that were done to the dogs, it is just incredibly heinous - and when it all first came out he claimed he wasn't involved, never went to the house, didn't know there was dogfighting there, etc etc. Now whoever ratted him out - it may even be one of his cousins - alleges he was there and participating in most of it. They must have a darn good case because apparently it's very rare to disclose that many specifics of it in the indictment - it tips too much of their hand to the defense attorneys, so they can build theirs in rebuttal. But they must be pretty confident or perhaps have more cards to play we haven't seen yet.

Naturally there were all kinds of protesters there when he was arraigned - some from PETA, of course, but mostly local blacks from Richmond (where the Federal Court was) and my area there to support Brother Michael, trying to make out this is just another case of The Man trying to keep The Black Man from getting ahead, which absolutely infuriates me! I don't care if he's black, white, or purple, and whether he's an NFL football player or a gravedigger, if he is abusing and torturing animals he must be stopped, tried, and punished!!!! mad.gif

If it was up to me ( and if I could get a day off from having to worry about that pesky old Constitution of ours - I don't see why not, Bush does it all the time! laugh.gif ) I would set their punishment if convicted as having the same things done to them that they did to their dogs, at least for a few days. It only seems fair.

The truly sad thing is, he and his cadre of extremely sad lawyers will probably muscle their way through it and get him off, and even if they get a conviction it will be greatly reduced from what it should be, and even it THAT happens we all know the man will never do time. He and his thug buddy Iverson (who is another hometown embarrassment) will be back on the street doing their thug thing and making more millions of dollars to spend on drugs and guns and living the high life.

Which brings us right back to your original statement, Carnal Malefactor - what great role models the NFL (and the NBA in Iverson's case) select for young black kids. And I worked with them in the libraries for 17 years and they do idolize those guys beyond all reason, especially the ones from where they are from, because they think it shows that they, too can get out from the poverty of where the are and on to better things. It is so so sad.
