Sharpton to Have Say over How Sony Makes Movies

Reuven Fenton et al., New York Post, December 18, 2014

Coming to a theater near you: Al Sharpton.​

Hollywood ​came to the Rev. Al Thursday as embattled Sony exec Amy Pascal ​met ​privately with the ​black leader for 90 minutes ​in a bid to fix the fallout from the ​cyberhacking ​leak of embarrassing, racially charged emails.

Pascal agreed to let Sharpton have a say in how Sony makes motion pictures, in an effort to combat what he called “inflexible and immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood.”

“We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,” said Sharpton.

He said Sony would work closely with his National Action Network, ​the ​National Urban League, ​the ​NAACP and the Black Women’s Round Table to “see if we can come up with an immediate plan to deal with it.”

The meeting, held behind closed doors at the Greenwich Hotel, also included National Urban League president Marc Morial.

Sharpton called the conversation “candid” but stopped short of calling for Pascal’s head after she was exposed making racist remarks about President Obama with Hollywood producer Scott Rudin.

“So the jury is still out on where we go with Amy,” Sharpton said. “We clearly are willing to deal with an immediate formula to see where we deal with breaking down the walls of inflexible and so far immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood.”

He was mum on the exact details of the plan to work with Sony but added, “We are not going to be satisfied until we see something concrete done.”

    Take this two different ways: first, if Sony still had a Japanese man calling the shots, he would’ve told Al where he can go. Second, I expect Amy Pascal to merely pay lip service just to shut up Al. She’ll end up not taking any action.

    • Mybad

      Well, with affirmative action governing the movie industry, anything could happen. None of it good for White Christians. Will Hollywood leaders let Al in on their game at the upper eschalon? I don’t see how. It’s one thing to have lots of black faces in the actual movies. Quite another to have them in positions of equal power…executive producers and on down. Many thoughts come to mind in discussing this topic. None of them will be discussed on the Sunday morning news shows, nor here. Maybe the Hollywood elite will get what’s coming to them? After all, they are the ones pushing for all this diversity BS that they push in their movies, aren’t they?

      • benvad

        Well as soon as they’re given in “real” power, well then, that’s the end of that industry. Jews are not going to let this idiot ruin what they created or maybe they will?

        The jews seem to have suicidal tendencies for some half baked concept of healing the world.

          …or OWNING it…!

    • Lkoehn

      Having worked for a large Japanese corporation the last 26 years of my working life I got to watch a really great company to work for turn into a mediocre company as Japanese management was replaced with American college damaged management. It was great to retire.

      • exlib93

        I understand…I worked 33 years in an increasingly hostile and incompetent environment. More care was spent presenting Affirmative Action and sexual harassment prevention lessons (what a lucrative racket that is!) than efficient and polite customer service. I dealt with unhappy customers, which was preferable to dealing with the “leaders” of this organization.
        I put my papers in, told no one, was there on a Friday, gone the following Monday. I love being retired.

        • Lkoehn

          I was born to retire and hate that I had to work to do it.

          • Fathercoughlin

            Comment of the day. Thank you.I am currently in the pre-retirement phase of my retirement!

          • Lkoehn

            Of this one thing I can assure you, that those people who say you will be bored to death and hate retirement all of them are idiots and do not have a life. Hang in there!

  • A Freespeechzone

    You can bet there will be a series of ‘White Privilege’ movies released to placate Sharpton and the anti-White crowd.

    Look for more like The Help, 12 Years a Slave, etc. to continue to disenfranchise White, Christian America.

    • TomIron361

      The only thing black people are about is being black. Otherwise, there is nothing to them. Every conversation they’re part of, even if it’s a conversation about a crabgrass problem will somehow be turned into something racial by them. So how could there be any other type of movie with them?

      • Barry Hussein 0bola

        BINGO. You could give Blacks their own lush, vibrant planet ALL THEIR OWN even better than earth and once they realized they were clueless, violent and imbecilic YET AGAIN with natural resources abundant before their very eyes, they’d go back to crying about whitey for all of their woes (and lack of weaves).

        • Lkoehn

          They would also turn that planet into a wasteland.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          They could turn Hollywood into Detroit in 10 years. (If the Saudis were black, there’d be shortage of sand…)

    • BernieGoetzFan

      In other words just more of the same.

    • Dalliance

      She should have asked the Rev if he liked DJANGO.

        He isn’t even a “Rev”, just a fake.

        Theres some Oprah crap coming out soon;” Selma” I believe. More noble negroes fightin fo dem cibble rites!

    • archer

      Then you can say goodbye to Sony pictures, it will end up in the junk pile of history as failed enterprise.

    • mobilebay

      How about a remake of “Gone With The Wind,” starring Al Sharpton as Rhett Butler and all the black slaves changed to white people? I can just see Al making plans to shake down the owners of Tara and Twelve Oaks. Surely, this will take the Academy Award and Sharpton will wind up owning Sony and copy white movies for the rest of his miserable life.

  • mattj458

    The right place for Al and his people. The only thing they’ve ever done in history is entertain.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      When it comes to being entertaining, they NEVER let you down…

    • Speedy Steve

      They were not even particularly good at minstrelsy. Jews had to do that for them, and they learned tap dancing from the Irish. Coming to think of it, were they really any good at picking cotton?

  • Frank_DeScushin

    There will be plenty of posters here commenting on the hypocrisy of having to kiss Sharpton’s ring to be absolved of “racism”. It’s sickening. What I want to know, however, is how a true idiot like Sharpton is taken seriously when he speaks like this…

    “We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,” said Sharpton.

    • mattj458

      One does not have to be well spoken when speaking to morons.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        The low-information “demographics” seem able to translate…

    • Alucard_the_last

      The only lack of diversity is the black CRIMINAL in every film. In the last few decades, blacks are only seen as the saviors of the human race.

      • Barry Hussein 0bola

        And that is aimed squarely at white women to let their guards down around feral black males. Bill Cosby was a success at convincing stupid white Libtards to allow their daughters alone with him because he was ‘America’s black daddio’.

        • exlib93

          They’re being unmasked…but if dumb people choose not to look at the real face underneath…

      • Mybad

        Indeed, the criminals are usually white blonde men, occasionally Hispanics.

    • shmo123

      That’s exactly what is so frustrating about the little rat. He’s a first class moron with no education; an inarticulate boob who has somehow worked his way into radio and television with commentaries so absurd, that if anyone else were reading them you’d think they were skits from Saturday Night Live. He’s nothing but a greasy little store front preacher in a thousand dollar suit, and it’s appalling that supposedly intelligent people pay any attention to him at all.

      • Ograf

        When one is dealing with a base line IQ of 75 to 85 it isn’t hard for rabble rousers like Sharpton with a 99 IQ to sound brilliant. I can’t believe how quickly they cover up bs like tawana brawley, how did they play that off anyhow? OH I forgot , she was black.

    • RacialRay

      Uh, that wasn’t his ring that this toadie was kissin’ on. This was some down and dirty, deep-dish, tongue-in-groove azz-lickin’. Just the way ol’ Al likes it.

  • So, Sony Pix has a new CEO. But when will he have to time to do that? After all, Al Sharpton is already pretty busy being President of the United States.

  • crockadoodle6

    How does this change anything?

  • MekongDelta69

    Simple solution:

    If Sony lets Sharp-Tonnage extort them, then boycott every Sony product on the market.

    • Is it still boycotting if you weren’t going to watch them anyway?

      • MekongDelta69

        I haven’t been to the movies in about 20 years, with one exception.

        However, I meant every Sony product (TVs, PCs, etc., etc.).

        • Broz Tito

          Oh, seriously, you didn’t watch “Gran Torino”? 🙂

    • mattj458

      We can still hope Korea blows em up.

    • Alucard_the_last

      It is very important to let them know it. Let’s flood them with letters and emails.

      • exlib93

        Vote with your wallet. See, rent or buy no film. Blacks alone can support fully only a trickle of industries, and only as consumers, rarely creators.
        Man does not live by fried chicken and rims alone.

      • KyraNelson

        What about one of those “Change.Org” Petitions? There were something like 300K signatures against paroling the feral negress who participated in the murders of Channon Christian & Christopher Newsom. It’s easy enough to start one.

  • superlloyd

    “We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,”

    What a joke! You can’t move for falling over diversity in Hollywood productions. Witness the remake of ‘Annie’ set in Harlem.

    Sony, in particular, are the biggest cowards and craven hypocrites in Tinseltown. Nauseating stupidity on their part to suck up to this criminal, race baiter and dupe.

    • Ultimate187

      Further provocation of North Korea isn’t wise. Pulling the movie was a smart move by Sony to protect themselves and their partners in the US and Japan. Words are cheap; it’s not your money or company at stake.

    • Mybad

      Watch the trailer of “Annie.” Cameron Diaz is mistaken for a hooker by the Jamie Fox character. Should generate a lot of laughs by the blacks in the theatre!

      • Ringo Lennon

        Jamie Foxx always struck me as an ugly anti white black who had a fling w/ actress Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise’s ex.

    • exlib93

      I’m still trying to determine whether the hacking of the “inflammatory” emails was the impetus of the release of this dud, to assuage Sharpie, or was it just racial serendipity. Stranger things have happened, which can be traced back to political machinations.

  • IstvanIN

    The blacks laugh their behinds off every time they makes someone grovel over some stupid, trivial thing. Dey hab da powa!

    • DonReynolds

      They seem to have enough sense not to demand you or I kiss their body parts and bed for forgiveness. Seems they only bully the weak and vulnerable.

  • Doomispixulated

    I’d like to see Sharpton’s emails, just for a hoot.

    • Sick of it

      I’d like to see him in jail for tax evasion.

      • exlib93

        Yes, and what about those people who died in the fire in Harlem that he instigated.

        • Sick of it

          Their relatives should be allowed a private chat with him in his cell.

        • KyraNelson

          It wasn’t Harlem. It was Crown Heights, a part of Brooklyn.

          • exlib93

            Thank you for the info. Wrong side of the river…same trouble marker.

          • KyraNelson

            Why doesn’t anybody stand up to him and his BS? I don’t get it.

      • DonReynolds

        Apparently……owing $4.5 million dollars to the IRS is not enough to trigger collection and seizure, much less jail time…… if you are Al Sharpton.

  • exlib93

    I have already stopped going to the movies because of blacks in the theatre, never mind the movie content or producer.

    • IstvanIN

      Do blacks EVER shut up?

      • exlib93

        Not during movies, or when they believe liberals are listening at least.

      • Sick of it

        No and neither do paid liberal shills online. It must be their day job with their constant posting every 30 seconds.

        • Usually Much Calmer

          Maybe the online ‘liberals’ are not paid.
          Perhaps they don’t have minds of their own, patience, skills, friends, or anything else to do with their time and that is enough to explain it.

      • MartelsGhost

        Only after applications of superglue……………………..

    • DonReynolds

      My favorites were those Robin Hood movies and Viking movies that added Negroes to the cast. I was not impressed.

      • exlib93

        Laughable. I liken a black Viking to a 300 pound pole dancer. It just shouldn’t be. Yet, were told to “bend over”, and get used to it. I would pay full price to see a white production of Porgy and Bess on Broadway (written by the white Gershwin brothers), just to hear the protests it would illicit.

      • kikz2

        bbc tv series. merlin.. black guinevere…….

  • Tarczan

    No one seems to have noticed that Sharpton is an idiot. Listen to his radio show for a few minutes and you will get an idea of the intellectual lay of the land.

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    Back in the 50’s, during McCarthyism, the government saw Communists under every rock. There were congressional hearings to denounce people as being either commies or sympathizers. The new “ism” today is racism. Let the hearings begin.

    • MekongDelta69

      Another fallacy. There were communist plants in our gov’t. back then. A LOT of them.

      • DonReynolds

        They are no longer considered plants and moles and communist cells. There are more now than ever, but no one (except me) is allowed to use the word “communist” anymore, not even in the press. Such a hurtful label…..ya know.

        • exlib93

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Sharpton called the conversation “candid” but stopped short of calling for Pascal’s head

    As Larry King once said, anytime someone says they had a “frank” discussion, you know what they really mean is that they had a screaming match with closed fists.

    When Sharpie Al says he had a “candid” discussion, he means that he said, “You a racist!! Give me mo’ money!!” and whoever he’s hectoring is saying “Yessa massa! Yessa, massa!!”

  • dd121

    Why would anybody take what this tax evading, anti-white race baiter seriously about anything.

  • DD-762

    I have an idea for some change in Hollywood. Replace members of the Tribe with members of the tribe.

  • Alucard_the_last

    This country is dying at a pace that I never thought was possible. First North Korea decides what we can watch and now Al Sharpton. It is time for us to FLOOD Sony with all of our might. I will make sure to boycott anything Sony does for now on and I am going to let them know it. Make sure you all boycott the new Annie movie too and all other white films that have been made into negro form (like the Honeymooners that BOMBED).

    • Ultimate187

      Cancelling ‘The Interview’ was a wise move by Sony to avoid further provoking North Korea, thus protecting themselves and their partners in the US and Japan. Words are cheap; it’s not your money or company at stake.

      • Broz Tito

        I’m don’t feel strongly about the cancel decision. Let the pundits argue the merits. What I do believe is that Sony should have fired Ms Pascal immediately and avoided the oversight of Rev Al. I don’t see how Sony Entertainment US can exist at this point with Rev Al in the mix.

    • Mybad

      The Hollywood elite must sit back and figure out how little they can spend on a movie and still turn a profit (with DVD and pay-per-view sales). Maybe Mel Brooks was right in “The Producers.” Make a low-budget bomb for the theatre. Plenty of stupid whites that will pay when the price drops!

  • Alucard_the_last

    I just went to Sony’s web site. Annie is a Sony film. Spread the word to any liberals that you know is planning on going to see it Friday. Use the North Korean threat as a reason to boycott Sony. I’m going back over to their site to torment them some more.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Ha! Lefty Hollywood types exposed for their racism and the usual race hustlers lined up at the trough. How many zeros did it take on the check to get Al to shut up and leave?

    There sure is racial and cultural bias in movies: We need more fat black men in track suits with Planet of the Apes hairstyles and gold chains to star as leading men in Hollywood productions.

    The Japanese execs should demand Pascal commit seppuku

    Why doesn’t Ms. Pascal just resign? I am sure she can afford it. There are better things to do in life than grovel before Rev. Al and company.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      It’s been said that no matter how much the chosen one Pascal grovels she is finished. She is going to be replaced. Good!

    • DonReynolds

      No…..the liberals won’t be satisfied until she submits to Al Sharpton, whenever he points and grunts, and gives birth to male twins…. naming one Eric and the other Mike. They are looking for atonement.

      Have you ever seen the South Park episode where Randy accidentally says a racial slur on Wheel of Fortune and he has to “apologize” to Al Sharpton, emporer of all black people? I realize that South Park may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the episode is hilarious.

    Just what America needs, a bigger stage for our biggest race baiter to stir up more hatred and controversy. An ethical media would not give a tax evading hate monger an opportunity to promote his agenda.

    • exlib93

      Sharpie should have his first amendment rights. What I object to is that he’s being taken this seriously. Very damaging.

      • Lkoehn

        I would not infringe his right to speak his mind but what has this bottom feeder ever done for anybody to deserve media attention every time he flaps his lying lips?

    • ghettovalley

      Shouldn’t he be in jail?

      • Lkoehn

        No, not just plain no, but heck no! People should be allowed to say what is on their minds which is why I am against “hate” speech laws. I just don’t think he has ever said or done anything to deserve getting a microphone in his face every time he opens his mouth. He is a divider, a race baiter, and makes his living from it.

        • ghettovalley

          Not for speaking his mind, for tax evasion.

          • Lkoehn

            Ask yourself this simple question: If I owed the IRS 4 million dollars what would happen to me? He gets special treatment for what reason, because he is black? Because he is a race baiter? Because he is a professional liar? What reason?

          • ghettovalley

            They scrutinize the tea party secretly, yet they allow Sharpton to walk the streets. How would the IRS respond if Jared Taylor stopped paying his taxes? Would they be as lenient on someone outspoken on white rights? I’m certainly not comparing the two any further than that, don’t get the wrong idea. But why have the blatant double standard?

          • Lkoehn

            There is a double standard because people allow the blacks to put them on a guilt trip for sins gone by. It seems to me that people are afraid to say to blacks, man up! That stuff has been over for years. You get profiled now for who you are now and how you live now

          • throttler

            Because he is Obama’s friend, for one thing.Any president who would have Sharpton as a friend is unworthy of the office.

          • Lkoehn

            I could go on forever over Obama’s lack of qualifications to be anything but a community organizer and race baiter but his using the IRS for political purposes is well documented.

  • Lkoehn

    One more thought: if blacks are 15-20% of our population why are so many in our government offices? In the movies? in commercials? In the “I’m smartest roles? I’m bravest roles? The answer is white overcompensation for imagined wrongs some of which may be legitimate 100 years ago but which no blacks today have suffered.

    • ghettovalley

      I am of Irish descent. There is a reason for my woes, the potato famine. Black logic.

      • Lkoehn

        Tradition has it that we are Austrian and the original name meant Kings place. We probably cleaned the stables at the Kings place. I expect the family came to America to escape prosecution rather than persecution. Black humor!

    • throttler

      It’s supposed to be 13%,

      • Lkoehn

        I honestly thought 14% but could not quote where I got that.

  • ghettovalley

    I’ll just go ahead and file this in the “Companies That Will Never Get Any Of My Money” folder. It’s getting pretty big these days.

  • rockman

    As with all things if they make movies you dont like dont watch them. Poor sales will make the point very well to Hollywood. What is interesting is that movies like the help and roots are all written by white people. Also the movie Shindlers List changed history what really happened is that Shindler bought guns on the black market and gave them to the jews and when the police came to take the jews away they were faced by massed machine guns literally and they did not want to die for a lost cause The movie was made to fit Clintons antigun agenda.

  • JohnnySmoggins

    Speaking of movies; there’s a black version of Annie out now and an all-female version of Ghostbusters coming soon. If you support Hollywood by paying to see their indoctrination, you’re part of the problem.

    So Sony is taking the lead from McDonald’s for the prize: 365/black?

    It was very easy eliminating McDonald’s from my family’s choices. I expect Sony will be just as easy.

    I say Sony should be forced to let Al write all the scrips and they should be read as written with no editing or spell-checking………………………………

    Let all the world see the eloquent poetic musing of the man who offered us such gems as “Resist we much. We must and we will much. About that, be committed.”

    The real problems with the left is that because they never read the Bible or have ever done an honest hard days work in their lives they have never learned how painful or rewarding it can be to reap what you have sown…………………………

      Not worried about the day that people will be mandated to pay money and watch his movies? Ever see the movie ‘The Killing Fields’, where the prisoners were literally a captive audience; forced to watch the plays/skits that the Pol Pot killers put on? Not applauding was a death sentence. That’s where we are headed.

        I keep having nightmares about a future world where celebrities perform to an entire robot audience. I used to worry about the automated or holographic celebrities taking over like that bad Al Pacino movie a few years ago or the recent holographic musical guest on the Letterman show or that godawful Tupac hologram. But I think the celebrities will be much happier with little automated or holographic audiences who blindly applaud whatever drivel they’re programed to enjoy and satisfy the celebrities sense of narcissistic importance.

        Killing Fields was a great movie.

        Yes, But there’s a reverse to the “applause” idea. No one wants to be seen as the first to stop applauding either.

    Ms. Pascal will toss some bucks and faux contrition towards Sharpton and probably do nothing more than hire a few African American ringers to make the office look more ‘diverse’. I’m sure she’ll also continue in private to regard blacks with the hypocritical condescension common to her liberal, Jewish stock.

    When, oh when, will someone caught up in one of these scandals refuse to apologize and kiss the posteriors of the Sharptons of the world?

      When it is safe. I believe that time is coming.

    The “owners” of Hollywood ought to award the entirety of Hollywood, every single asset it possesses to some consortium of negroes, maybe the Black Women’s Round Table. I consume nothing from that hellish place and after a few years of negro management, no other living person would either. Within a short time, Hollywood would be Detroit and you’ll get your precious entertainment somewhere else.

    Does this mean Sharpton can finally afford to pay-off all those bad debts he incurred from his run for the Presidency: All those bills for airline tickets, hotels, meals, banquet halls, and limo services that he charged but never paid…??? (Just kidding!)

    I vaguely remember a few years ago when Gilbert Gottfried was invited to tell some jokes to Sony top brass at a dinner meeting. He launched a barrage of homosexual jokes which ultimately had steam exhausting from the executive ears. I guess Gottfried never figured Sony could get any lower, but they dredged another couple of feet out of the cesspool. Ask me again if I care.

    • IstvanIN

      Gottfried is pretty low, crude and untalented.

      • Speedy Steve

        Uh huh, Istvan, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    I’d like to be on the steering committee for that working group dealing with racial bias and lack of diversity. I have a list of classics I’d like to see turned into movies. We’ll begin with a remake of Birth Of A Nation, then move on to the rest of Thomas Dixon’s classics, G.K Chesterton’s The Flying Inn needs some serious movie treatment, and some more Remo Williams liberal-bashing would do the nation some good.

  • Sloppo

    When I saw the name “Amy Pascal”, I thought about a girl named Autumn Pasquale.

  • Ringo Lennon

    I wonder how much weight Sharpton will have after death of two cops. Perfect time to tell Sharpton to take a flyin’ leap.
