    cause you know why?
    advertisements and media still use white men on most ads. (It's a bit better for ads catered to women where they use minority.)
    You might see a bit more black men, than hispanic men, than asian men, in ads.

    maybe people won't have internalized racism or self esteem issue if they see their own representation on media and ads. (i mean they can still have issues comparing themselves with similar ethnicity, but it won't be comparing two different levels of melatonin)

    you blame the media for using white people in their ads in a predominantly white nation ? + they make everything now multicultural and racial there is not a single movie now where only white people have roles and most ads as well, seriously shut the fuck up, america, hollywood is one of the most tolerant countries/places in the world

    just because this loser likes to whne all the time does not mean there is actually a problem

    I hate these stupid race talks also i hate how media is now terrified to make something ''racist'' like portraying a black/asian person in a bad light just to not be called racist but portraying white people in a bad light is completely fine, have you noticed how all the bad guys in movies are now white just to be politically correct

    all this bullshit
    or the word nigger, well fuck it, It is ok to hear the word nigger on the radio from n**gers but they will look at my skin color to decide if I can use it

    I dunno about white men being desirable. I rather hit AnOriginal than say the hideous HikerSkier.

    hey, i didn't say all white people. I did acknowledge that there are minorities represented, just that there's room to improve representation.
    Sure, there's more diverse roles on media, but how many of them still use DECADES OLD stereotypes?
    Also, we can talk about minority and gender representation, but im not going there.

    What about media where a character is originally a different race in the book or whatever? Why is white washing the cast ok? Why is it ok to cast a white person in a character that is designed to be different race?

    in my opinion (bolded this part in case u can't see bold), portraying in bad light is still bad, but could be better. what happened to originality? what happened to viewing individuals as an individual, and not someone fitting stereotypes in some way or other?

    as for the word "nigger" im not qualified to speak on it, but perhaps you could look into the historical usage of it and how it affects other people hearing or reading the word.

    Ouh poor people and the word nigger, haven't seen germans being offended and outraged like wild animals when other nation use the word nazi

    but I guess in this hypersensitive age of ''racism'' we have to remember history when a rapper uses the word nigger 50 times in a song and you can hear it like every day on the radio


    yeah, makes perfect sense

    and about movie heroes, they do that for everything, sometimes other races play roles where originally the character was white and in the end movies are made for developed countries where most of people are white
