TV Networks Make Unequal Progress Toward on-Screen Diversity

David Bauder et al., ABC News, January 20, 2015

Kenya Barris, creator of ABC’s “black-ish,” was motivated to write the comedy about an African-American family’s efforts to honor its heritage in part by the unreality of what he grew up watching on television.

“I saw ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ and thought, ‘What part of New York is this?'” recalled Barris, who is black. “It’s not about being diverse. It’s about being true to the world.”

His show comes 15 years after civil rights groups, galvanized by a lineup of new network series almost entirely devoid of minority characters, sought and ultimately won agreements from major broadcasters to put programs on the air that better reflect the nation’s population.

An AP analysis of regular cast members on prime-time comedies and dramas on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox found progress since then in hiring black actors, but slighted other minorities. Casts at three of the four networks are still whiter than the nation as a whole.

That’s in contrast to a fall 2014 season that seemed to signal broad change. Besides “black-ish” and a trio of shows from black megaproducer Shonda Rhimes, it offered Asian-American crime fighters and Latino families.

Among the key findings of the AP analysis:

— ABC, NBC and Fox now have a higher percentage of blacks in prime time than there is in the general population–a significant change over 1999. The difference is most dramatic at Fox: 6.5 percent of characters in lead or supporting roles were black in 1999 to 21 percent black this past fall, a number that notched up again with January’s premiere of “Empire,” a drama about an African-American family’s music dynasty.

— Other ethnic groups don’t do nearly as well. While Latinos are the nation’s largest minority group at more than 17 percent of the population, only Fox and ABC have Latino representation of as much as 10 percent.

— CBS, the nation’s most popular network, had the most diversity 15 years ago and now has the least. CBS programs are whiter now than they were then.

In 1965, after NBC cast Bill Cosby in “I Spy,” young Kweisi Mfume’s mother sent her son to knock on doors in their Baltimore neighborhood to spread the word: “There’s a colored man on TV!” Cosby had become the first black to star on a network drama. In 1999, as head of the NAACP, Mfume was among the leaders pressuring networks on diversity.

“One can make the argument it’s been progress over 15 years, but it’s still been 15 years and that’s a lot of time to go by to see some of these changes incrementally,” said Mfume. “We can get pleasantly and romantically drunk by looking at all (Rhimes) is doing. . . . But at the same time, she’s one person at one broadcast network.”

{snip}

{snip} By the fall of 1999, ABC, NBC and Fox each had prime-time casts that were 86 percent white–at a time when the U.S. Census put the non-Latino white population at 71.9 percent.

In fall 2014, with the non-Latino white population estimated at 62.6 percent, CBS’ series cast and characters were 79.2 percent white; ABC’s were 72.7 percent; and NBC’s were 69.7 percent. In contrast, Fox’s slate stands at 60 percent white.

The Census Bureau counts blacks as 13.2 percent of the U.S. population. Blacks made up 15 percent of cast members in fall shows on ABC and NBC.

“We try to make sure the numbers we have reflect our society,” said Karen Horne, NBC’s vice president of programming talent development and inclusion. “We’re servicing people we’re broadcasting to.”

    Here’s a ‘good’ one:
    NBC News Just Launched NBC black (NBCBLK)
    http://downtrend[dot]com/vsaxena/nbc-news-just-launched-nbcblk/

  • “Black-ish” is a dumb minstrel show. “Empire” is little more than Shakespeare’s “King Lear.”

    • Reynardine

      Isn’t all black entertainment essentially minstrel shows? Watch a rap video and you’ll find the Buck. Watch a hollywood movie and you’ll find Zip Coon and the Mulatto. Watch an average newscast on TV about crime in the area and you’ll find Jim Crow.

      • benvad

        Ignore all of it.

      • Cheri Rodriguez

        Local news is the worst. There’s always a White anchor with a black anchor (often of the opposite sex). Since when is half of the population black?

        • bilderbuster

          And it doesn’t matter what part of the US you are in the Black/White/Man/Woman formula is the same.
          But the massive Black over representation is in advertising.

          • Ron Cheaters

            I actually saw a Quaker granola commercial that didn’t have a single black in it. I couldn’t believe my eyes.. there were whites jogging, at the office, the last guy was building a house. It blew my mind.
            It must be in response to the backlash of the Cheerio’s commercial. Maybe they’re taking sides. Maybe I should look into eating granola.

            Edit: Nevermind, just discovered they’re owned by Pepsico.

          • Kenner

            It’s granola. It’s too much work for blacks to chew it.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Nigras don’t eat Granola: They eat possum…

          • ElComadreja

            When I see a commercial without a black it sticks out like a sore thumb.

          • RationaliseThis

            I saw a Samsung S4 telephone ad of a White blonde girl marrying a negro. I avoid their products like the plague now as they make me puke. So many other better brands.

          • Scott Rosen

            The African anchor is there to tell you about African crime in passable English to remind you that they’re not ALL like that.

          • Cid Campeador

            Nobody really believes that they’re ALL like that but proportionately to their population they commit the Simba’s share of the violence.
            I have a feeling that the Black reporters are totally embarrassed.
            I had a Black student who during one of our Space Missions was watching TV in the classroom. During a local news break there were three or four stories covering local crime investigations; the perpetrators of which were Black. This girl put her head down on the desk and lamented “Why do they ALWAYS have to be Black?”
            I felt really sorry for her.

          • MrGJG

            Anecdotes aside, I think the overwhelming evidence supports a severe lacking of shame among a vast majority of black people here and abroad.

          • ElComadreja

            It takes intelligence and humanity to feel shame.

          • meanqueen

            Yes, but I still feel bad for the few who can feel shame. We can aways retreat into our white world, but what can they do?

          • Ellis Kurtz

            They can take refuge in the fantasy that all black problems are the result of white malevolence or indifference. Isn’t this what we get from black TV talking heads every day? It is essentially their job description.

          • meanqueen

            Talking about the black people who have no desire to placate themselves with lies, the ones who have integrity and just want to lead normal lives. They exist, even if it doesn’t seem like there are very many of them.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Do you remember when Mr. Ghetto’s “Walmart” song came out? “Wally wally wally wally wally wally world”?

            Well, I was working in retail at the time, and one day some white people started singing it on the sales floor. We had a couple of black employees, and they ran and hid in the back room until it was over. I followed them into the back out of curiosity at their reaction, and they were both sitting back there with their hands over their faces in mortification, moaning, “Why does stuff like this always have to be made by black people?!”

            I have since checked out the rest of the (ahem) artist’s repertoire, and I think they got off easy as the rest of his songs are worse.

          • meanqueen

            I feel sorry for the good ones, too. Think how horrible that would be.

          • ElComadreja

            Like I’ve always said, 99% of blacks give the rest a bad name.

          • Scott Rosen

            You know a good one (percent)?

          • bilderbuster

            And we are supposed to believe it.

        • Cid Campeador

          I believe that it IS 1/2 the population. Their numbers could well be downplayed as is the number of their criminal offenses.

          • anony

            You’re onto something. How can the official number ever be checked?

          • ElComadreja

            They don’t count any of these Spanish speaking Caribbeans as black.

          • Hy Alldredge

            The Spanish speaking Caribbeans don’t count themselves as black either. Tell a Dominican that they’re black and you’ll get an earful.

      • Rurik

        My TV has been totally black all the time, for years – I pulled the plug. I have been much happier.

        • Nancy

          They should’ve stuck to their guns back in the 80s, when Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie were giving them grief for not allowing black artists. (It was originally a “rock only” channel.)

          Personally, I find “watching my music” disconcerting. I’d much rather listen with my ears (unless, of course, the artist is performing live). Those silly overproduced videos add absolutely nothing for me. (But then again, most of the music I listen to was recorded before MTV came along.)

          • Cid Campeador

            What really annoy me are the subtle commercials showing a White mother with her obviously half Afro children. Do the AD folks really think that this is going to have THEIR desired effect?

          • anony

            Well, if your above post is correct, then maybe the AD folks know something we don’t, and that is that the black population is really much larger than we think.

          • Nancy

            Actually, I can speak to this, as I’m also a part-time commercial actor, and I have an agent, so I know a little something about this trend. (One of my short commercials is actually still out on YouTube: https www [dot] youtube [dot] com/watch?v=ZJdB55qDsTs )

            Anyway, casting directors and agents are always looking for talent that is “racially ambiguous”, which is why my youngest child, who used to have very curly hair and is olive-skinned like me, was popular with the casting directors when she was very young. They actively seek out people who appear bi-racial, in order to appeal to a wider audience.

  • LHathaway

    Every major newspaper in the country is losing circulation. They are all politically correct, pander to women and people of color and are anti-white. They ignore the truth. What they do print is so distorted it may as well be lies. That would seem the whole purpose of what they print, to invert reality 180 degrees. Let the people of color they buy off and pander to buy their papers. Most cities have papers directly targeted to readers of color, too. Why pay them and have them use the funds to either ignore you or lie to you? Whites should boycott every major paper in the country. Perhaps even both papers, in the few districts that have two? I don’t think it will arrive anytime too soon. . . but how soon till it is in Whites best interest to boycott television stations? Perhaps that time long ago arrived.

    • cyrusthevirus

      Well here in England there are a lot of stupid complacent white people.We still have a program called the fresh prince of Bel air showing on cable -presumably aimed at teenagers–I watched it once when channel hopping and was bloody furious-Never seen anything so insulting and contemptuous towards white people! Had to explain to other white people who admitted watching it just how bad it was before they got it!! So many white people seem to expect and accept being held in contempt.

      • bilderbuster

        Gee… I wonder who would produce such Anti-White TV shows?

        • Sid Ishus

          Don’t even hint at those who must not be named. All comments must meet ADL guidelines.

            He was being sarcastic LOL

          • Garrett Brown

            It was genuine sarcasm. He was making a point that we all should accept as truth (because it is) yet this site refuses to. Thus why I don’t really post here much anymore.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Yes I agree, and when the truth about the semites are posted, they get deleted. I do not care and I continue telling the truth even if they get deleted. Go to Occidental Observer and you can post as much as you want about the truth, without it being deleted. Also listen to the White voice network every Sundays at 7 PM EST and they discuss a lot of issues. The truth is also discussed there as well.

          • bilderbuster

            You missed the landslide of posts here last week that was six million to one in our favor about who is really responsible for events in present day Europe and the US. Who runs our governments, our financial institutions, who’s responsible for communism, the war on Whites, and more importantly who’s behind the hoax of the twentieth century.
            After hundreds of positive posts the comments section was shut down and everything was deleted.
            The comments were opened the next day with the same resulting posts.
            You should have been here because last week it was: Je Suis Amren!

          • Garrett Brown

            I was here, two of my comments were deleted as well. I was very disappointed in this website, even more so than normal. It’s what prompted me to not frequent it as much as I have in the past. I doubt ill be posting here much anymore.

      Back when I lived in New York, I quit subscribing to the local paper when they kept promoting illegal alien amnesty. I figured, let the illegals buy that paper. It’s not my fault if they didn’t pick up the slack. As for TV, I have been boycotting it for 35 years.

    • Albert

      Many years ago, blacks raged against the media claiming it made them look bad. So the media started to make their reports colorblind- so to speak. When your own actions make you look bad, you have to shut down the people reporting them.

    • meanqueen

      There are numerous good DVDs to watch. For starters, there are all the classics from the heyday of filmmaking. Then there are BBC productions of classic novels like Pride & Prejudice (not the hideous Hollywood movie, but the BBC production), Sense & Sensibility, North & South (again, about England and unions, not the civil war series by the same name). There is Thornbirds, which is a personal favorite. I’m sure there are many, many more. Someone should compose a list of acceptable movies. My list would include some black actors and black themes but only if they are realistic and uplifting and illuminating in some important way.

  • Luca

    Cultural Marxists worship at the altar of “Diversity” because it is an effective wedge to use against Whites. It is also related to its number one tactic of class warfare.

    • cyrusthevirus

      I think the classical Marxist class war has been largely replaced with the anti-racist tactic as it is so much more flexible and far reaching–any way the class war scenario while working in more primitive societies never worked in Western Europe.

      • Rurik

        Blacks are the surrogate proletariat.

      • BiancaSnow

        This happened by design. The Frankfurt school had a lot to do with it.

  • Easyrhino

    “On most major networks, blacks are overrepresented.”

    Especially on the show: COPS.

    • LexiconD1

      I don’t watch the show (only flipped by it), but has ‘The Next 48 Hours’ (I think that’s the name) ever featured a suspect that wasn’t black?

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      “Bait Car” suspects are 80% black (and 20% Hispanic). It seems that a lot of blacks want it off the air because it’s “entrapment” to leave nice cars unattended in poor neighborhoods.

    • bilderbuster

      The Jewish producer of COPS is on record as saying he deliberately under represents Blacks so as not to portray them negatively.
      That’s his clever way of saying he over represents White criminals so as to intentionally portray Whites negatively and to falsely make Blacks appear better than they really are at the expense of Whites.

      • FinnShane

        White criminals are definitely over represented, at least I as I noticed when I used to watch it as a young man back in the 90s. Strangely enough, the white criminals were also nearly always shirtless. It was as if they started stripping as soon as they saw a cop car coming.

        • TheMaskedUnit

        Ah, yes. The only casting roles Diversity, Inc. isn’t suing for more representation.

        • Juggernaut3000

          I misread your post as The only “castrating” roles Diversity, Inc.

          Actually, “castrating” is more appropriate to the current TV and Hollywood situation when it comes to White males.

    • Scott Rosen

      And “the First 48.”

  • Truthseeker

    CBS, the nation’s most popular network, had the most diversity 15 years ago and now has the least. CBS programs are whiter now than they were then.

    In the late ’90s CBS was doing terribly. NBC was riding high with “Friends” and “Seinfeld” and was the undisputed #1 network. Now, CBS has gotten less “diverse” and is #1, while NBC has gotten more diverse and is struggling. Huh.

    • WilmotRobertson

      and “selma” is tanking in the theatres…….

        Thank you, God.

    Blacks are overrepresented everywhere on television. This is particularly apparent in children’s programming, commercials, and local news (seems every local market has at least one black news anchor). But the 13% is still not satisfied and clearly never will be.

    • Reynardine

      What’s more interesting, I think, is not just that blacks are constantly featured, it’s where they’re featured I find interesting: front and center, always.

      Usually in commercials the center image, or last image is that of “smiling numinous negro” who just proved his superior negro intellect against dumb man-child white man who might have made the wrong decision, had it not been for magic black man. The man-child’s white woman companion eyes the negro with a mixed sense of wonder, reverence, and lust.

      • Tarczan

        Did you ever see the Dodge Dart commercials? They are incredibly insulting to whites. There is one where the black guy slaps the white guy in the face for touching his Dodge Dart.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          Yes, I’ve seen it… just another reason when the ads come on. turn the TV on mute.

        • meanqueen

          A few years ago, there was one about a white female jogger and a black man who was ogling her. His black girlfriend got jealous and threw a coke can, supposedly at him but it hit the white jogger and knocked her out. Then the black couple jumps up and runs off. I mean, WTH??? Blacks like commercials in which they are being violent or at the very least, very disrespectful to white people. It’s sickening that advertisers and tv programs would condone that.

          • John Smith

            If it was true-to-life, the buck would’ve taken her wallet and raped her, while the negress probably killed her afterward in a fit of jealousy.

          • Juggernaut3000

            Yeah, we’ve got to demand that the blacks that control the media, especially the advertising industry stop over-representing themselves in commercials and TV programs.

            I can’t seem to find any information about which blacks control the media, maybe you can help?

        • John Smith

          The Dodge Dart is a rebadge of a POS Fiat made by “diverse” UAW workers, and most Dodges are marketed to “sub-prime” borrowers. A smart white guy wouldn’t take one if you gave it to him.

      • pwnful truth

        Absolutely true, Rey, and it is a lot more worse and in-your-face on the Disney Channel and all the kid-targeted channels. If you aren’t paying attention to your kids, and they spend hours of unmonitored time in front of the television every day, they will worship blacks by age twelve

        • Reynardine

          Sports is really the greatest transmission vector, followed by music.

          • WilmotRobertson

            transmission vector is a very precise term to use in this situation.

          • John Smith

            I don’t call what they spew forth “music” anymore.

          • Reynardine

            That’s true, music implies a melody, of which they have none.

        • Mary

          You’re right about Disney. They couldn’t be any more blatant, though Nickelodeon and Sprout are just about as bad. Most of the shows and a lot of the various in-between segments are replete with non-Whites. The “Disney Kids” group for example–one White kid out of about six or seven.

          • realgone222

            What I notice with the DIsney programming is that there are select shows that feature mostly whites and then there are others that are very “diverse”. I think it is a clever way for Disney to allow parents to monitor which shows their kids watch while satisfying the PC police for full minority representation overkill. I restrict my 8 year old from watching certain shows and have heard her tell a friend “no my daddy doesn’t like that show turn it off!!” to which the child turns to me with a horrified look and I say “Janey you really shouldn’t be watching that show”. I’ve noticed where there are black characters they are mostly acting white except for the occasional lite ebonics and “hip hop” references. I object to it because it is not a true representation of that state of America today, its just not believable and it sets a false narrative for my kid requiring later deprogramming.

          • Ron Cheaters

            Ever have a white kid come up and sputter out a bunch of lazy black slang??
            I just ignore it, or tell them to speak it in English.

            Or punch them as hard as you can in the face.

            SO TRUE!

      Yeah, I refuse to get my news from a black anchor. And then the PBS nightly news host looks like a terrorist. That is when the cleaning lady, I mean Gwen Eiffel, is not on duty.

      • Rurik

        I used to think of her as Gwen Awful. Now I don’t think of her at all.

      • meanqueen

        Gwen Eiffel is one of the better ones! What about that Don Lemon guy? There’s a moron.

      • John Smith

        Gwen’s sister is some kind of race/civil rights activist, IIRC.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      I got a great offer from Scanna energy in the mail today… going to switch over after seeing the ad from Georgia Natural Gas with two blacks in bed snorting, burping, grunting in the middle of the night about how they needn’t worry about turning the heat up after being assure their gas heating bills won’t be drastically higher this winter. I don’t need to do business with an outfit that features googly-eyed, obese negros in their ads… probably 95% of all their employess are black, too.

    • De’Ontavious Jizzaiah Jones

      Agreed. Appears these are mandatory diversity set aside positions now. Even up here in Alaska with few blacks, they are over represented on newscasts. So I choose not to watch. One, a female news presenter, just acted very unprofessionally by making a big scene and quitting on air to call attention to her marijuana business. She just lost her business eviction case in court last week for not having insurance in violation of her lease agreement…

    • John Smith

      I’d be okay with it if it was the crime and prison dramas where you saw most of them.

  • Reynardine

    ‘In 1965, after NBC cast Bill Cosby in “I Spy,” young Kweisi Mfume’s
    mother sent her son to knock on doors in their Baltimore neighborhood to
    spread the word: “There’s a colored man on TV!”’

    Ever notice that what blacks have to be proud of (and women, sodomites, and other minorities)? It’s not that they invented something, created something, or innovated something. It’s that they’re the first X to do something the white man did previously.

      Gays did not invent anything !?

      • Reynardine

        Some white men who happen to be homosexual have invented and created plenty of things: Alan Turing is a good example. Alan Turing did all his computational and discrete mathematics because he was Alan Turing, probably in spite of his homosexuality.

        That and the homosexual community declares long-dead people who never married to always be “gay” so it swells their ranks considerably.

        When they’re flaming catamites, you hear that it’s a gay first. Now since all propriety has left the West, it’s all homo-invention, as if sodomy makes one better at his chosen field.

        Homosexual sublimation has produced better material out of homosexuals (Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Walt Whitman) than the embrace of their lifestyle.

        • BlueSonicStreak

          In spite of?

          There are a lot of stupid anti-gay comments on AmRen; and I pass most of them by because I don’t want a pointless fight here on an issue so unrelated to race or nationalism.

          But this nonsense reaches a new level of ridiculous with the suggestion that being a homosexual actually hinders you from doing math. Yes, I’m sure that Turing would have been that much better, had he only been heterosexual. The tragedy. The world will never know its loss.

          • Reynardine

            Math requires long hours of study, uninterrupted concentration, and a brain to match.

            Sexual sublimation is a powerful tool towards this end. A few ounces of self-control and sublimation can make all the difference in one’s life. It’s the secret of monastic orders everywhere.

            Male homosexuals have little to no self-control when it comes to indulging their fetishes. They can’t get anyone pregnant, they have a nigh unlimited pool of pervy partners, and an appetite to match.

            Because Turing had no other end but to invest this energy in mathematics, he contributed to society instead of contributing to its depravity. In this case, the societal pressures against homosexuality.

            Turing’s downfall came when he entered into a relationship with a homeless man half his age. An associate of the homeless man then burgled Turing’s residence. He openly admitted a homosexual affair to the police later (a stupid thing to do, knowing it was illegal). Had Turing not indulged in this amazingly bizarre relationship or admitted its nature, he might have lived a long and successful life.

            Certainly, you can understand how homosexuals have been used as a pry-bar against Western and White culture, can you not? Self-control is the cornerstone of civilization – what incentive do homosexuals have in self-control or contributing to a society they see as being full of “worthless breeders”?

          • BlueSonicStreak

            We agree on Turing’s stupidity in admitting his relationship to the police; outside of that, I legitimately don’t know what to say. Being closeted helps you remain undistracted? Well, maybe. Maybe being miserable and lonely is also a distraction.

            I think this is a goofy justification for claiming that homosexuals are a “pry-bar against Western civilization” when homosexuals have existed for as long as Western civilization has.

            But besides being goofy – and MUCH more importantly – it’s not falsifiable. So you can go on believing it if you want, and I will just part ways here.

          • Reynardine

            In all fairness, I think heterosexuals should control themselves too. Homosexuals don’t suffer from miserableness and loneliness alone, nor do they alone have problems with lust. Being miserable and lonely is something I’ve experienced often as a White Heterosexual Male: the intersection of “privilege” that leftists assume enjoys a constant blissful existence.

            Sexual excess is the root of many of our problems. By conquering one’s lusts, we conquer an animal instinct: it’s an expression of civilization. It’s what sets the higher races (Whites, Asians, upper-caste Indians) apart from the lower races.

            Homosexuals have existed for a while, but so have blacks – I hope you can see that’s a chronological fallacy. So, you don’t think the Left has used homosexuality as a crowbar against the West recently? How exactly does the West benefit from AIDS, gay marriage, homosexual propaganda, and depravity? Homosexual marriage incentivizes this behaviour and makes it normal – do I benefit from this?

            What if we were to rewrite the Turing story so that he’s cavorting with a 19-year-old homeless black woman whose associate robs him? Turing admits a sexual relationship with the negress, although let’s say that’s illegal back then. How does this account differ?

            An arbitrary measure of “goofiness” does not a rebuttal make. I don’t think it’s not falsifiable. Try it for yourself. Reduce sexual expression. Learn to control and sublimate the desires. See your creative output rise.

          • Pelayo

            Homosexual marriage will actually help reduce AIDS and depravity by tying a person down to a partner. Also are we all expected to be breeding machines if we’re white? I mean I’m gay and I’d like to have children some day but if someone doesn’t want children that’s equally valid. Somewhere out there there’s a couple who wants a big family to make up for it. What needs to be addressed is the birth rates of other groups and make it easier for middle class couples to raise a child.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            I fully agree that sexual excess is a problem. The gay male community has a terrible problem with promiscuity which is being kept off the table for public discussion (at least partially because the gay community has the sense it is being constantly criticized to begin with). We can agree on that. I think part of the problem is the gay community’s rejection of sexual mores like monogamy and fidelity as “heterosexist” and oppressive. I have literally seen people accuse monogamous gay couples of “acting like hets” (obviously meant to be pejorative). That’s a cultural problem in the gay community for certain.

            Beyond that, I don’t think we have any points of agreement.

            I brought up the history of homosexuality because when WNs discuss it, there is often a feeling of homosexuality being alien to Western/white nations. It is not, unlike non-whites. Virtually every ethnic or racial group on the planet has homosexual members, who are native to that race. A white homosexual is still white; a heterosexual black is a racially genetic stranger.

            And gay activism began in Europe in the 1800s, so that is not new either.

            I have yet to see a convincing argument that homosexuality is destructive per se. AIDs originated in Africa, with either drug use or heterosexual prostitution or both; homosexuals alone are not to blame for its existence. I live in a country with gay marriage, and have yet to see it wreak any havoc or destruction. I cannot answer any concerns about so-called “depravity” without knowing what you mean by that term; suffice it to say that I have few concerns about any specific and individual acts between consenting adults that cause no demonstrable harm to anyone.

            If I have one really major objection to how the left addresses the issue of gay activism, it’s how they DO tie it to racial civil rights, and use the latter as leverage. As I explained above, the two things have nothing to do with each other. The left does this for EVERY issue; one of the newest ones is the abominable concept of “fat acceptance” (which doesn’t seem to be taking off, as people aren’t keen to “accept” people dying of obesity-related illnesses). But the left is now using GAY civil rights as emotional leverage to push “anti-fatphobia.” Which also has nothing whatsoever to do with sexuality OR race…

            The idea is just to tie all those things inextricably together so that a failure to accept one is a failure to accept them all (and a severe moral failing); and NO civil rights issue is truly evaluated on its own merits. Ridiculous to see the right fall for it.

            As for me personally…I think for me to be even remotely LESS sexual would take a serious feat of imagination. But even assuming I could, I am not won over by the idea of an “experiment” with no well-defined controls or quantitative rubric for assessing the outcome.

          • Reynardine

            Before I answer your question in any depth, do you believe there is a qualified difference between male and female homosexuality?

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Not sure what you mean by a “qualified difference.” They may have different causes. Issues in the gay male community are also not the same issues that lesbians have.

            If you are asking if I see some sort of moral difference between them, then no.

          • Reynardine

            Homosexuality in its current form is completely alien to Western society for the last 2000 years. Most Indo-European and Semitic civilizations have various laws against homosexuality since earliest recorded times. Even the Greeks would consider our homosexuals degenerate and effeminate. They might have been buggering little boys off the battlefield, but they were extremely devoted to their polis, and even went to the icky work of having children with women and supporting their race! A homosexual Greek beside you on the battlefield was someone you knew you could count on in the shield wall.

            Does the homosexual community today match that description?
            Would the Greeks of yesteryear ask for homosexual marriage, discrimination laws, hate-speech laws, and affirmative action?

            When you see something disgusting in a pride parade, do you feel proud of America, willing to die for that?

            Why is it so necessary to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” so that homosexuals can serve and heterosexuals can be comfortable? Why is it necessary for transsexuals and crossdressers to use any bathroom they wish without considering the comfort of the vast majority of people who can use only one stall on a daily basis?

            I think the key point I can make to you is that the very nature of modern homosexuality is intrinsically disturbing, specifically male homosexual intercourse. Lesbians seem to be a little more stable.

            Homosexuality, for lack of a better way to describe it, is little more than a birth defect with an aggressive voting pool behind it. Like having infertile children, homosexual children are the end of the breeding line. They signify a termination of your family and a mouth to feed that will never give back. They are a liability in Darwin’s race. But infertile people don’t have an identity based around a common perversion.

            What is the purpose of homosexuality? Homosexuality was classified until only recently (1970’s) as a mental disorder. It took far longer for interracial marriage to be a settled issue, why are we so eager to dissolve what little social order we have left?

            A government may do one of three things: prohibit something, ignore something (default legal), or promote something. Ignoring or prohibiting homosexuality has worked plenty well for us in the past. What incentives do we get from promoting homosexuality? How does that make me more successful in life? Recently, a cake shop in Denver had to close down because they wouldn’t bake a cake for a homosexual wedding.

            If I have a business that caters to the needs of couples, these rulings ensure that must I extend them to homosexuals. Many dating sites MUST do this, but homosexual dating sites are under no such laws. What if I don’t want to? I either have to fight this in court or close my shop. It’s a freedom that has been stripped from me.

            I wouldn’t walk into a halal or kosher butcher shop and demand they slaughter my pig, and get mad when they won’t because of religious reasons. Why is that any different than the homosexual scenario?

            The burden of proof is strictly on homosexuals to prove that they’re not a detriment to society, not the other way around. It’s up to homosexuals to prove they can control themselves, not beg for marriages to “help” themselves. The benefits of marriage can be done with organizations that homosexuals can make themselves. If an inheritance or visitation law needs to be changed, give us a good reason why it benefits everybody and needs to be changed, don’t corrupt marriage. I myself would like to be able to leave whatever to whomever, have I no heirs.

            Homosexuality is selfishness incarnate. There is a necessity in society to give for something you’re given. Do homosexuals bargain? Do homosexuals say “if you give us marriage, we’ll do something beneficial for all heterosexuals.” No, it’s their “right” to have marriage. It’s “discrimination” otherwise.

            Just like with blacks and Mexicans, I’ve had utterly awful personal experiences with homosexuals, who are among the most anti-white people I’ve ever known (one called me a “slavic breeder peasant” to my face and thought that all “sh*tlords, cisscum, and breeders should die.”) I’ve been sexually harassed by a homosexual man, received come on’s from several others, and my cousin’s mother left his father for a another woman. Some of the most mentally ill individuals I’ve known participate in the most depraved homosexual actions you can possibly imagine. The worst thing about this is, they never shut up about it. It entirely defines them as human beings.

            I’ve been pretty libertarian my entire life, and these experiences have slowly changed me into re-evaluating all of my past values.

            It’s a heterosexual world, and one that could easily do without
            homosexuals. The homosexual world couldn’t do without heterosexuals.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Apologies for the late reply; I wanted to give this comment some attention but was swamped with work this weekend. In the end, as this is late and I didn’t want to unneccessarily drag it on, I have cut it down to my main points of disagreement:

            >> Homosexuality in its current form is completely alien to Western society for the last 4000 years.

            I simply don’t agree with this. How could something native to Western society be simultaneously alien to it? It’s true our current understanding of homosexuality is extremely recent: if I pointed out that the Romans were okay with men having sex with male social inferiors but that they thought being the receptive partner was unacceptably faggy, I’m betting that would sound pretty familiar to you and not at all like a forgotten social convention from a long-distant time.

            But gay subcultures date back a very long time in Europe. A more modern conception of gay subcultures is at least as old as the 18th century. And I doubt you could find an era of the Western canon that was not influenced by gays.

            >> Does the homosexual community today match that description?

            Does it matter for those that do not perform military service? As various Western countries have opened military service to out queers, many had dire predictions about drops in competency or efficiency which do not appear to have come to pass.

            >> When you see something disgusting in a pride parade, do you feel proud of America, willing to die for that?

            Don’t know how to answer this question. I don’t like some of the displays I’ve seen pictures of happening in some major American cities. It appears less to me like an expression of pride, and more like pathological histrionics that Pride parades give some people an excuse to act out in public. I certainly can’t defend it, and I think it embarrasses a lot of gay people.

            The Pride in my city seems more tasteful though, from what I’ve seen. I live in a pretty conservative area, yet have heard relatively few complaints at all about our city’s yearly Pride. It’s mostly a big party in the streets, and people walk around with cute rainbow face paint and rainbow balloons for a day…that’s about it. I’ve seen a few pictures of people dressed skimpily, but nothing San Fransciso-like, like clothes made out of dildos, or whipping people in the street or whatever.

            I wouldn’t die for it; but then, there isn’t much about my country I would die for at this point. It is rotting culturally, just like America; but I would put happy white people in rainbow face paint well down the list of things causing the rot…

            >> Homosexuality, for lack of a better way to describe it, is little more than a birth defect with an aggressive voting pool behind it.

            A birth defect that causes no innate distress, is limited to a single-digit percentage of the population, and is shared without calamity by nearly every mammalian species on the planet. Doesn’t strike me as more concerning than having extra toes.

            >> Like having infertile children, homosexual children are the end of the breeding line.

            Not exactly. Women related to homosexuals are more fertile; the trade-off for having a gay son who won’t himself pass down the family genetics is having more children overall throughout the family line.

            Pretty good trade, actually.

            >> A government may do one of three things: prohibit something, ignore something (default legal), or promote something. Ignoring or prohibiting homosexuality has worked plenty well for us in the past. What incentives do we get from promoting homosexuality?

            Conversely, what benefit is there to active persecution of gays and their families?

            I’d be fine with “ignoring” it, but I don’t know if we have the same conception of what that means. My version may be closer to a sense of normalization…or at least considering it unworthy of note, rather than “normal.”

            >> If I have a business that caters to the needs of couples, these rulings ensure that must I extend them to homosexuals. Many dating sites MUST do this, but homosexual dating sites are under no such laws.

            I’m not sure about that. There are actually a lot of women with accounts on the gay pickup app Grindr, looking to pick up bisexual and “curious” gay men. Gay men HATE it, but I actually don’t know that the app has a legal recourse to keep women from using the service.

            Some gays might actually agree with the idea of being allowed to protect businesses from any unwanted base of customers, provided that it meant that gay businesses were also able to thrive, and to limit their business solely to the gay community without being forced to provide service to heterosexuals.

            That’s part of a much larger debate that I’m not sure I have a strong opinion on or want to get into yet, though.

            >> The burden of proof is strictly on homosexuals to prove that they’re not a detriment to society, not the other way around.

            No, going back to my first point – homosexuals have been part of our society from the beginning, have helped shape Western culture, and also appear to be connected to genetics that increase fertility in women (as well as increasing their overall reproductive health). It is very much on YOU to prove that a long-existing, contributing segment of our society is inherently “detrimental.”

            There’s another debate here about any harm inflicted by the modern manifestations of gay culture; and I’d be more receptive to that than any claims that homosexuality is inherently destructive.

            >> The worst thing about this is, they never shut up about it. It entirely defines them as human beings.

            Many people have accused White Nationalists of the same thing regarding whiteness. A sense of consciousness evolved in resistance to perceived persecution tends to come off like that.

            I’m sorry for your terrible experiences. For the most part, they haven’t been mine. I have been sexually harassed by both heterosexuals and homosexuals, and don’t consider that the behaviour of any group but predators and people who believe predatory behaviour is okay.

            Don’t be an idiot too.

            Non-East-Asian NON-WHITES breed indiscriminately. White and Asian people, on the whole, breed within their means when it is safe. There are some low-IQ and cultural exceptions, but that is the trend. That’s why we’re in danger in the first place.

            “Breeders” propagate the species, you maroon. We wouldn’t be here without heterosexuals.

          • Reynardine

            saxonsun – you’re a purported “white lesbian.” You’re not having children, and are consequently not contributing to the White society you claim to love so much. You’re deeply irrelevant to any and all white issues.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Reynardine, I am capable of opposite-gender attractions; but I am NOT physically capable of having children, for reasons I won’t get into here. Am I also “deeply irrelevant to any and all white issues”?

            Serious question. Every time I see people carry on about gay whites not having children, I have to wonder where white people who are infertile fall in their estimation. There’s very little chance of any of us having white children, and both conditions are also equally involuntary.

            If ONLY having white children is a relevant contribution, what is this website even for? (Has Jared Taylor ever had children? I can’t find any mention of them online.) Why are we here? What’s the point of trying to spread any information about white issues, or raise white racial consciousness? Considering how politically poisonous white nationalism is, perhaps the ONLY thing any of us should do is encourage white people to have children and trust that most of them (given the still-low rates of miscegenation among most whites) will be white.

          • Reynardine

            First of all, thank you for engaging me in a collected and well-thought out conversation instead of what saxonsun did. I enjoy being challenged on my issues in a respectful way. If you read what she posted (that ‘breeders’ are the problem), you’ll understand my reply.
            I find you a stimulating and unique commenter here on Amren and meant no insult there towards you.

            Support of the white race, I feel can easily be summed up in some 14 words: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children.” Anything that works towards that end is good, anything that works against that is evil.

            The first and best way to contribute is having children and teaching them correctly. If you are unable to do so, but contribute towards that end with education, labor, or promotion, you are fulfilling your racial duties. I place having children and not educating them as being below that. Having more work against us is not desirable.

            Advocacy is what we need more of right now.

    Whenever I see an advertisement featuring a racially mixed scene of a jolly bar, peaceful picnic, or women enjoying shopping together, I feel someone is trying to pull a fast one over on me. Such black/white conviviality doesn’t exist in the observable universe. The ad-makers should realize this incongruity reflects negatively on their product.

            Did you know that Rupert Murdoch is not, in fact, a Jew? Now that you know that, you are smarter than the average klansman.

          • Juggernaut3000

            Do you know that you are, in fact, wrong about Rupert Murdoch?

            His mother was an Orthodox Jew, something he tries to hide.

            Read this from Veteran’s Today:

            “Murdoch “became an American citizen for business reasons,” according to Richard H. Curtiss, editor of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. Keith Rupert was born in Melbourne, Australia, on March 11, 1931. “Rupert’s father, Sir Keith Murdoch, was a newspaper publisher, and his mother an Orthodox Jew,” Curtiss wrote, “although Murdoch never offers that information in his biographies.

            Murdoch’s support for Zionism extremists is well known and a matter of record. As New York Governor George Pataki said, “There is no newspaper in the U.S. more supportive of Israel than the [Murdoch’s] New York Post.”

            It is through a network of Zionist organizations, in which Murdoch plays a central role, that Murdoch is connected to the individuals who arranged the privatization – and obtained control of the World Trade Center – shortly before its destruction.”

          How about this from the Times of Israel no less.

          Why don’t you tell the Times of Israel that they’re wrong about Jewish control of the American media.

          From the Times of Israel:

          “Let’s be honest with ourselves, here, fellow Jews. We do control the media. We’ve got so many dudes up in the executive offices in all the big movie production companies it’s almost obscene. Just about every movie or TV show, whether it be “Tropic Thunder” or “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” is rife with actors, directors, and writers who are Jewish. Did you know that all eight major film studios are run by Jews?”

          http//www gilad co uk/writings/jews-do-control-the-media html

          But to point that out, if one is not Jewish, is anti-Semitic.

    I watch precious few network programs these days. The unreality of, as an example, 4 friends, 3 White and one black, rankles me. Let the blacks have their shows and us ours. I prefer reruns and some History channel shows.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      Even reruns aren’t safe. I’m a big “Wild Wild West” fan and have all the old episodes (1965-1969) on DVD. The first season is fine; it’s in the second season that they start throwing in the diversity e.g. Richard Pryor, Sammy Davis Jr., etc. A novelty then but annoying now.

      • pwnful truth

        I love watching classic TV and movies (like TCM), and they have been shoving blacks down the throats of an audience who didn’t want them since at least 1940. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is actually only one of around a half dozen B/W films that I, personally, have watched, which had the exact same plot as the Peck stinker, start to finish (“Intruder in the Dust” from 1949 is the last one I saw). I guess they figured they perfected the formula with TKAM, so they hung awards on it and kept shoving it down our throats. But then Hollywood made several more of the same formula for good measure, each more ludicrous vulgar than the last. See John Ford’s “Sergeant Rutledge” for but one shameful example. Also, see any film which featured Sydney Poitier

        • meanqueen

          I liked Sydney Poitier and especially his role in To Sir, With Love. It was a good movie, well-acted, emotionally moving and thought-provoking, and plausible. Same for To Kill a Mockingbird. But enough is enough. Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner was horrible – completely revolting and pure propaganda. In the civil rights era, there were good black people who were being treated unfairly. There is nothing wrong with making a good movie telling some of those stories. What we have now is a situation where blacks are not oppressed or treated unfairly and where, in fact, the tables have been turned and they are completely out of control demons and criminals and white society is cowering and running at every turn. If they made monster movies where the monster was a black man OR woman, THAT would more accurately depict what’s going on today.

      Get ME TV.. all those 70s oldies but goodies… in the a.m. you have Lucy, the Donna Reed Show, then later on Big Valley, the Streets of San Francisco, Colombo, Hawaii Five-O, Cannon.. all those really good ones… when the ocassional black character did his job just like everyone else, with no griping or whining about racism and no discussion about diversity.

    An AP analysis of regular cast members on prime-time comedies and dramas on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox

    Hey AP — How much “diversity” is there on BET?

    Blacks are vastly over-represented on television today.

    Whites are cast as profoundly stupid, subservient fools, goof-balls, clueless morons in need of rescuing by smart blacks.

    Blacks are portrayed as honest, hard-working, great husbands and fathers, highly intelligent, well educated, patient and law abiding.

    It is the exact opposite of reality.

    Add feminists and homosexuals to the unreal mix that is being shoved down our throats and network television is unwatchable.

    That’s why I stopped watching network TV a long time ago.

    If blacks want more diversity, they can watch Cops.

    • MBlanc46

      And now, apparently, they’re starting in on the “transsexuals”.

    • bilderbuster

      So many of the “straight/normal” White men portrayed on TV appear to be only one Appletini away from turning into flaming homosexuals.

      • That gay voice! Even the ostensibly straight characters have it now. What has happened to whites?

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        That’s because tv shows are mostly produced by white liberals and straight white liberal men actually act like that in real life, so they think it’s normal.

        • bilderbuster

          “TV shows are produced by ‘White’ liberals”?
          You know better than that.
          There isn’t a single network run by a “White” person.

          • GeneticsareDestiny

            Yes, I’m aware that Jews are vastly overrepresented in the entertainment industry. Since they are very similar in behavior to white gentile liberals, I was lumping them in with them. Wealthy and influential Jews tend to run in the same social circles as wealthy, influential white gentiles, so there’s a lot of cross-contamination of ideas between them.

      • meanqueen

        Remember American Beauty? It could have been such a good film, if not for the caricature treatment of the boy’s neo Nazi father being a closet homo. That completely ruined the movie for me.

    • saxonsun

      But feminists and homosexuals exist–they are very real. Get over it. There are actually people out there who are nothing like you. And Thank God. How horrible it must be for your sort to have reality pop up every now and again.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Frankly, I don’t give a damn what or who you are or any other person for that matter. I am far more concerned with stopping the PC reign of terror and genocide against my race.

        What I object to is homosexuality and “gayness” being shoved down my and my children’s throat everywhere I turn through the media and schools.

        If I object in anyway I am a Nazi who wants to force gays into the oven.

        I know it and you know it.

        Ask Billy Crystal. He’s right.

      • The Grizz

        Homosexuals exist, but they make up around 1.5% of the population. To watch TV you’d think it was nearer 50%.

        • BlueSonicStreak

          But make up much more than that in the entertainment industry, which is itself VERY gay-friendly.

          People are seeing a conspiracy here. In reality, I’m pretty sure people make TV shows partially on the basis of what appeals to them.

          • The Grizz

            Is “very gay friendly” a euphemism for full of faggots? If ethnic minorities can demand proportionate representation in the media why can’t white heterosexuals? I am sick of looking at Jews and queers every time I turn on my TV. If whites should only be represented in proportion to their numbers in society at large, so should Jews and homosexuals.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            No, it’s a “euphemism” for heterosexual people who have no problem with gays and don’t mind putting stories on TV about them.

            The number of gay characters on television is approximately 3-4% of the total in various studies. That’s probably high for the American population as a whole, but matches the number of gays in urban areas. Given that most gay characters probably appear in shows set in urban areas, “proportional representation” is EXACTLY what you’re getting. As requested.

          • The Grizz

            I don’t want to see any of you. I find you repulsive. What next, TV quotas for paedophiles?

          • BlueSonicStreak

            If you don’t want to watch TV with gay characters, then don’t. I essentially don’t watch TV at ALL myself. I find it all stupid. If there’s something I do want to see, I download or buy it and watch it on my own time and player where I can skip anything I don’t want to see. Plus, no ads.

            I recommend that course of action.

  • Rusty Shackelford

    “An AP analysis of regular cast members on prime-time comedies and dramas on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox found progress since then in hiring black actors, but slighted other minorities. Casts at three of the four networks are still whiter than the nation as a whole”

    Well at least we know the AP isn’t dominated by a bunch of left-wing diversitards! sarc. I wonder if the AP will now do an analysis of Telenovelas from Univison and Telemundo to see if they’re “whiter than the nation as a whole.” Rhetorical question I’m sure, but I bet if they actually did do a racial analysis of Telenovelas they’d find most of the leading characters have very white phenotypes (often with fair hair and eyes) and most of the darker looking actors portray the servants.

    • Ron Cheaters

      Funny, they never complain about being under-represented in novels..
      … only that the novels depict them as racist – when a flaming-white-liberal brings it to their attention.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        There’s been some complaining lately by blacks and white liberals that blacks are underrepresented in science fiction novels. The fact that most blacks hate reading and aren’t interested in sci-fi (which means they won’t buy sci-fi books) doesn’t seem to cross their minds.

        A lot of complaining also happens about their relative absence from young adult novels. I get the impression white liberals are more worried about it than actual black people though.

      • Spikeygrrl

    I am absolutely sick to death of American media, news, entertainment and all the 24-hour nonstop upheavel, griping and carping about race, racial matters, blacks complaining, smugly declaring now they are in control of formerly white territory. Sick to death of it. Embarrassing. Disgusting. No more CNN, No more FOX news, no more MSNBC, no more ABC or NBC or Meet the Depressed. Forever done with it.
    But the beauty of global communications is that we can now tune into all-white programming from Latin America, from Spain, Chile, Argentina, Colombia and even Univision and Mexico, and watch programming with ZERO blacks, including news about the United States. Latin American broadcasts are much more professionally done, without all the diversity rancor and white suck-ups on FOX kissing the ring of Dr. Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Tim Scott, and all the rest.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      The ACC tournament? It’s also a Negro-fest we can all do without. With February coming up, White History Month, I’ve plenty on the TV-watching agenda to block out the never-ending Negroid-fest. Already recording a special about Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Edison, and got my Lewis & Clark disc ready to go… and of course, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and the 4-hour documentary about the genius of the Roman Empire. I’ll spend February directing my thoughts to more edifying programming than the ACC tournament or watching FOX anchors schmooze with Al Sharpton.

    Minorities can turn the channel and watch BET, the NBA and ESPN Deportes. I’m so sick and tired of the “wise, hip, black man” canard.

  • LiberalismFailed

    I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I see a lot of minorities on TV: Cops, the First 48 Hours, The Worlds Worst Prisons, etc.

    • Nancy

      Actually, the producer of Cops has gone on the record years ago after he was accused of disproportionately featuring blacks in a negative light. In reality, he said that he goes out of his way to UNDER-represent blacks on the show, by at least 50% or more, because he anticipated exactly that kind of allegation from Sharpton and the NAACP. That’s why you see the show “Cops” as well as “Jail” focusing on cities like Portland, Salt Lake City, Seattle, DesMoines, etc…he’s going to locations not exactly known for their high black population. I’ve even seen episodes from Alaska. They may open an episode with a scene featuring a typical black arrest, but then the rest of the show focuses on drunk whites fighting in a trailer park.

      I noticed the show “Bait Car”, an accurate representation of black/brown criminal activity, has disappeared from the airwaves. The official claim is that they don’t want the car thieves to get too much information from the show, but I think there’s much more they’re not saying.

      “The First 48” has also come under fire from the Black Privilege sector for the same charges. In response, certain city leaders (I want to say NOLA and Baltimore, but I can’t recall exactly) have refused to allow any more shows to be taped in their cities. Their claim is the show “casts a negative light” on their citizens. Go figure.

    Things I notice on TV

    1. There are 10 times more black men than black women appearing on TV
    2. In every Hollywood movie, there must be a lengthy scene or two where a black male character and a white female character are having an affectionate conversation
    3. All bad guys and stupid guys in this world are white males
    4. All black guys in this world have a graduate degree or higher, and he is a loving father and husband at home with only two very well behaved kids ( Typical reality – 7 kids, 5 different baby mamas, no clue where his own biological kids live at the moment )

    5. There are 10 times more Asian women than Asian men appearing on TV
    6. The Asian woman is the smartest woman in this universe and everything she says is very sexy
    7. All middle aged Asian men in this world work at restaurants

    There was one movie where an Asian male was romantically involved with an African American female and its title was Romeo must die. It also did relatively well in the box office. The overall revenue that movie made, was roughly 3 times higher than the overall budget.

    • Reynardine

      6. The Asian woman is the smartest woman in this universe and everything she says is very sexy

        ah yes! nowadays, feminists have a very high power

  • libertarian1234

    I’m sick of watching these blacks on t.v. usually always giving some kind of representation that depicts the opposite of reality.

    The sponsors that flood the screen with so many blacks better hope their viewers don’t hold the same views as my family does, because we refuse to watch them or listen to them, even going so far as to click on the mute button or switching channels on commercials. If they had to rely on people like us to sell their products via black actors, they’d go broke in no time.

    It’s nonsense having so many of these people on as if they comprised the majority of the population….including the news shows…….and we refuse to watch any of them at my house.

    And we never watch movies with black characters in main or supporting roles.

    There are many others like us, but the total amount doesn’t comprise enough viewers to make a difference, but personally I don’t mind, because our screening process makes for a happier life without black hunter/gatherers. Fortunately we live in a rural area where the only blacks we ever see are a few hold overs from the days of phosphate mining in a few small towns here and there.

    They’re the most disgusting people on planet earth in every way possible.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Well from reading the comments below, I have decided to write this comment. I have decided to stop giving in charity to Chrisian Chruches and also to religious and secular charitable organizations, because they only help people of color and not white poeple. I was very saddened when I realized that Christian chruches that are white were promoting DIE-versity and race mixing and not to mention mud shakkery. I do not feel like going to church, but I go because I should not be upset with God for his clergy acting bad. However, they do not deserve my money for all their destructive policies that they support.

    • Ron Cheaters

      Yeah, I give to the church fund.. but when the basket comes for some “special interest” project like a mission to the heart of Africa, if I’m feeling bold, I’ll put in a note that says “Good Luck” or “Enjoy Your Vacation”
      One guy went to Nigeria and got shot in the leg, come back just to heal, now he’s gathering donations to go back again. Its a form of retardation underneath the label of “moral superiority”

    TV shows are nothing more than vehicles for advertising. That’s what they are now anyway. Advertising is geared toward females as they make the purchasing decisions. White females are by far the largest, most important group for advertisers. Pushing blacks will not work. Advertisers will lose money on shows that only blacks watch. It’s simple, which of course is why blacks can’t understand it.

  • throttler

    I think that the reason that Good Times and The Jeffersons were popular is because there was not much else to watch at the time. Not knowing any better, I watched them at the time, but I can’t say I really enjoyed them. Than heaven for Roku.

    • De’Ontavious Jizzaiah Jones

      I was in junior high when those shows were on. I watched Good Times, Jeffersons, and the one that had the Rerun character, Raj.. i never watched Sanford and Son. I watched them because I did not have much contact with blacks and so didn’t know any better. I do recall wondering at time why it was OK for George Jefferson to be so hostile toward the white guy, constantly calling him honky and referring to his zebra marriage. I knew then that whites were not supposed to say the equivalent about blacks. I thought Good Times and JJ character were annoying. Now, much later in life, I feel the same as you. I do not watch these shows. I like to watch old tv shows that depict how nice and white life was back in 50s and 60s like Leave it to Beaver, Father Knows Best, Patti Duke Show, Family Affair, Brady Bunch, which are current offerings of local retro channel.
      The article gripes about Seinfeld and Friends but I think those shows accurately reflect white people choosing white friends and venues over black ones, same as show How I Met Your Mother, also set in NY. I hate it when movies and TV shows insert the obligatory black judge, Doctor, Professor, friend as it is so fake. I even noticed it in 80s movie Gremlins that I watched at Christmas. A high school biology teacher character is black in a very perfect looking white movie town. I am glad Big Bang Theory did not insert a black physicist and instead checked minority boxes with Indian characters.

      • Cheri Rodriguez

        It’s a good thing that “The Brady Bunch” ran from 1969-1974. Do that show today and Marsha & Jan would have black boyfriends. Greg would be gay. Peter would be a tranny. Cindy would be a lesbian. And Bobby would be the sniveling hetero White guy that everybody makes fun of.

            No surprise here. It came out long ago that Robert Reed was gay. Just like it was known that Errol Flynn and Rock Hudson were gay. But it was never pushed on the public as a good thing. Take a show like “Bewitched.” Dick Sargent was gay but he played a hetero White guy married to a hetero White girl with a White (hopefully hetero) daughter. Whatever Sargent did in his private life was his own business but on TV he had to play it straight. Today you have to play it gay or be involved in an inter-racial relationship; now being a hetero White male is the bad thing.

      “Sanford & Son” was hilarious. One thing that’s not really talked about is the way Fred Sanford went off on Puerto Ricans—just like Archie Bunker did on “All In The Family.” Sanford got away with it because there aren’t many PRs in L.A. (notice how Redd Foxx never goofed on Chicanos on the show because in real life they probably would have killed him). There was one episode where they had to go to court and Fred says—”There’s enough n*ggers in here to make a Tarzan movie.” Again, you could pull this stuff off in the 1970s but never today.

    Box office top 20: ‘American Sniper’ hits $107 million

    Excerpts:

    NEW YORK (AP) — The record wide-release opening of “American Sniper” was even bigger than estimated. Clint Eastwood’s war drama took in $107 million over the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

    1. “American Sniper,” Warner Bros., $107,007,215, 3,555 locations, $30,100 average, $110,431,993, 4 weeks.

    5. “Selma,” Paramount, $13,850,087, 2,235 locations, $6,197 average, $31,514,117, 4 weeks.

    12. “Annie,” Sony, $2,991,855, 1,585 locations, $1,888 average, $83,171,867, 5 weeks.

    So during the four-day MLK holiday weekend, the white devil movie audience chose American Sniper over Negro-centric flicks like Selma and Annie.

    Al Sharpton, call your office.

      I’d like a sequel, where someone takes out Sharpton and his fellow-travelers.

    Same here in UK. Black newsreaders/weather forecasters on every channel and at least one black in every advert. I think the subliminal message is: ‘These people are part of our society’. We don’t have the equivalent of Amren in UK and every time I leave a comment in online newspapers including the advice to look at Amren, the comment is removed quickly.

    • You have Western Spring w/ Max Musson in the UK. They have a different format and get a lot less “general comments” but go more into followup on those comments.

      I offered to donate regularly to Western Spring but haven’t figured out how I can wire funds over there regularly w/o banking fees. I should also do the same for AmRen.

    My opinion; if you’re watching TV, paying to see Hollywood movies or supporting professional sports, you’re part of the problem. Stick to Netflix, illegal downloading and YouTube. Imagine if not a single White man watched the Super Bowl (not that I expect that to happen), they’d be done with pink footballs and jerseys in a heartbeat.

  • namberak

    I truly appreciate Fox heavily promoting ‘Empire’ so heavily. It kept me from accidentally channel surfing onto the likely single most unlikable cast and theme in the history of televised drama.

    • John Smith

      Yeah – anyone still dumb enough to thin FOX is conservative? My local affiliate’s second HD channel is minority-oriented programming and I’ve programmed it out.

    Some wag once commented that if Martians came down to Earth and watched network TV, they would conclude that Earth’s inhabitants are all dark-skinned…and really stupid!

    • John Smith

      The light-skinned ones are more so, for letting a minority of swarthy intellectual inferiors dominate their lives.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        Irrespective of their “shade” of skin color, down deep they are almost all n*ggers, with the exception of about five percent…

  • And whenever I watch the news, there seems to always be one black for every White. Gee, I guess blacks are 50% of the population, right?

    • DonReynolds

      I have seven choices of HBO (one of them is Spanish only) and yesterday was a good example…..all the movies were black, except for a few with psycho white guys…..who were ultimately defeated by the hero black guy, who saves the gorgeous white cheesecake.

  • The Grizz

    People prefer to see white people in TV because white people are better looking. I don’t want to see rubber lips, gaping nostrils, and frizzy hair when I’m trying to eat my dinner,

    • DonReynolds

      I used to think they preferred to see white people on the TV screen because they were less threatening, particularly since the scary sort of white people are never on TV except as the bad guy. But that cannot be true since Asians (men and women) are particularly non-threatening and they are seldom seen on TV.

  • The Grizz

    The Jerry Springer Show makes a lot more sense when you know he’s a Jew.

    • Quite true, very true. But considering this place’s shackles on free speech, this truth is destined for the dustbin. It’s Wednesday too. They have their most aggressive mods working on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I’d say no less than 20 minutes for a Wednesday then your comment is dust.

      • John Smith

        Even pretty innocuous comments involving the J-E-W word get yanked.

      • meanqueen

        Maybe they just delete comments that don’t add to the conversation in any intelligent way.

        • John Smith

          Considering the ethnic group that promotes this kind of garbage, thanks to their dominance in the entertainment and media industries, they are very much germane to the topic.

      • DonReynolds

        You are liar. I have read your nonsense here many times…..but do try to post something interesting on Huffington Post, or Salon, or the New York Times and you WILL see an immediate reaction. After that, you can try the Guardian.

        • You could learn a lot of truth about how the world works by reviewing my past comments, Don. However since you’re so quick to jump in with the ad hominem, I suspect you’re not interested.

          If you want to see how my ideas come off on mainstream, even leftist metropolitan websites, take a look at Cass Sunstein’s article at Bloomberg from July 20, 2013 entitled “Could Bowling Leagues and the PTA Breed Nazis?”.

          If you’d then be so kind as to sort by best comments then you’ll see where public opinion stands on the ***ish Question, Don.

          Be seeing you.

          • DonReynolds

            One need not drink the entire ocean to decide it is salty. I have read plenty of your comments here. Assuming you are somewhat consistent….we kinda get it.

            (What? Part of your comment is missing…..

            “I suspect it’s a racially motivated attack since your name, where you post and what you never say reveals more about you than you know.”

            was changed to…..

            “I suspect your’re not interested.”)

            Racially motivated attack? Is that not your picture?
            Sorry bubba, it cannot be racially motivated if I do not know your race.

            My name is what I was named when I was born.

            Where I post, you may notice, is the same place you post, silly boy.

            What I never say does not reveal anything. Those are the parts you imagine or you assume. Are you with the thought police?

          • How can you read those edits, Don?

            I made those edits just a few minutes after I posted, two hours ago. Yet you can see them. I haven’t touched that comment in almost two hours, yet you can see a phrase I decided to move not five minutes after I posted. You a mod here, Don?

  • John Smith

    I already stay away from network TV for this, among other reasons. This seals the deal.

  • Rick

    If you were an alien from some other universe and turned on an American TV, you would think that blacks were at least 80% of the population!

    • The Dude

      I once read a comment of an Arab guy under Youtube video about segregation in America. In it, he said something along the lines of, “How could you do this to a third of your population?!”

      I was like, “What?” Then asked him where he did get that we have that many black people. He said something like, “We have a television, you know!”

      I thought, “Of course! Television!”

      Then I told him to get his figures from Wikipedia next time rather than from movies and TV shows.

    • TheMaskedUnit

      Take me to the HNIC …

  • DonReynolds

    Blacks are 13 percent of the US population……roughly one person in eight…..and this is the LIMIT of diversity. By my own informal survey of all of television, including the networks, there is much more diversity than their proportion of the population would suggest. Black representation is wildly exaggerated.

    And why exactly was my book recommendation removed? Answer please. A book that is readily sold on places like Amazon–the Leftist outlet of choice? Answer please.

    I like to watch the ABC comedies and when that show “Black-ish” comes on I change the channel. What these people fail to realize is that most television viewers and most cable subscribers are white and will change the channel when they can’t identify with the characters. Watching black comedies is like looking into a very different world from my own and I don’t care for it.

  • John Smith

    Dannon is anti-2nd Amendment, so I already had good reason to stay away from their crap, which it is.

    The media pushes minorities on television programs and newscasts. Change the channel.

    One of the reasons I enjoyed watching Vikings. Zero chance of encountering diversity.

    I saw ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ and thought, ‘What part of New York is this?’” recalled Barris

    That would be the ‘white’ part.
