White terrorist attempts to kill Black people in Houston

According to Click 2 Houston, James Scott Lee, 32, began yelling racial slurs at a Black man while holding a knife. Lee yelled, “I hate n—s, and I’m going to kill me one today!” Lee chased his Black victim with the knife and brass knuckles. The Black man eventually escaped by jumping into a car and locking the door.

Police eventually caught Lee and arrested him.

Lee was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A hate crime enhancement was added to the charge.

Lee was being held in jail on a $250,000 bond.

Prosecutors said Lee could be sentenced to between five years and life in prison if convicted. Without the enhanced charge, he would face between two and 20 years in prison, they said.

You’re no longer allowed to be white, apparently.  Ghost in the Shell has provoked a backlash of endless whining about the specious concept of “appropriation.” If it wasn’t so tiresome and ridiculous I’d treat it seriously. It’s not. Cultures share. That’s the entire history of humanity.  Perhaps Japan can stop using Henry Ford’s good-old-American automobile concept?

Some are gloating about “weak” box office for the film today. But is it?

The live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell died at the box office this weekend, bringing in $19 million in ticket sales [in the US alone] against a budget of $110 million. The film brought in $40 million internationally, although it has yet to open in Japan or China.”

So it took in half its budget in one weekend. The people who love anime the most haven’t even had a chance to go. But it’s being declared dead a bit prematurely. I’m ready to head out and see it for myself.

Two American studios financed the film. They decided on the casting. If a Japanese studio wanted to risk $110M, they could have cast whomever they liked. In the US, we have a population:

“Whites (including Hispanics who identify as White) constitute the majority, with a total of about 246,660,710, or 77.35% of the population as of 2014.”

Pure evil. We have 77% white people, and so probably should never make another movie, television show or anything else. White is evil by nature, don’t you know? Bad white people, for existing…

PS

“If that’s not allowed, then Darth Vader probably shouldn’t speak English, either.”

Hollywood Mythology: How White Men Save the World

Some controversy over race and nationalism in Hollywood. But does he overstate his case:

Defending the decision to cast Damon in the lead role, director Zhang Yimou wrote, “Our film is not about the construction of the Great Wall …The arrival of (Damon’s) character in our story is an important plot point. There are five major heroes in our story and he is one of them – the other four are all Chinese. The collective struggle and sacrifice of these heroes are the emotional heart of our film.

 

I think another unmentioned problem, deserving of its own entire article is Hollywood’s myth about the hero/mercenary. This Great Wall film has Damon as a mercenary, a gun for hire, and yet he is praised by the director as a “hero.” So we already know where that’s going.

There is much propaganda to chew on. That insipid alien invasion crap Independence Day suffered from the same ailments. Nearly all big budget Hollywood films today are chock full of American propaganda and militarism.

 

As Sardar and Davies observe, “The myth of the reluctant hero is used to camouflage the fact that the majority of Americans actually do believe that America has the right to be imperial.
