Why are American films not diverse? Blame foreign audiences.

We are not so bad after all. Remember, Hollywood is first and foremost about benjamins.

You know what I blame? Lack of Religion.

All entertainment is about Benjamins. It's show BUSINESS.

Conservatives fail to realize that when they lambaste "Hollywood". Hollywood produces what people want to watch - not the other way around.

The neutrality of capitalism.

Australia are about to run a tv series in 2018 that humanizes white supremacist terrorists called "Romper Stomper". although the majority disapproves of racism in principle, they are still sympathetic of white supremacists.
This TV series is going to be Australia's version of 'American History X"
White supremacists and the alt right are the prodigal sons of western society.

Watcha gonna do about it? People like a movie character they can identify with and that's easier with someone from your own ethnic group. That's why Bollywood films are popular in India and Nollywood films are popular in Africa.

Hollywood wouldn't finance Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" movie.
Because the majority said "No"

If it is anything like the original movie, it will not humanise white supremacy anymore than anti-war films where some of the characters are from within the Nazi regime do.

Note: it is being made by same person who already succeeded in showing up the violence, stupidity and self-destructive nature of the skinheads two decades ago in the original movie. He said about the movie and TV series:

"People like David Stratton feeling or implying that if an audience were to watch Romper Stomper all of a sudden they would drop all of their ethics they brought into the cinema and turn into the characters they were watching on the screen, this is just nonsense," he said.

I said there is already a high level of sympathy for white supremacist terrorists in society, hence the demand for this TV series and its prodigal son narrative being made.

I know what you were saying and Rompa Stompa is simply not being made because of sympathy for White supremacy, just the opposite. It is against White Supremacists. It is not just being made because of the neutrality of capitalism, again just the opposite. It is anti those who are White supremacist or those who sympathise with them.

Capitalism is neutral.
If there is a market and public support they will sell it.
That is why Coca Cola made drinks marketed to Nazi Germany.

It's also why Im not moved or impressed when corporations support LGBT rights,
They are on board because over 55% of the public now support it.
If the majority of the public supported killing LGBT people it would be a very different story.


Coca-Cola collaborated with the Nazis in the 1930s, and Fanta is the proof
https://timeline.com/fant...5ee7e513af


Excerpt
Then in 1937, a rival German soda maker on a trip to the U.S. discovered Coke bottle caps with Hebrew writing on them, indicating they were kosher. The company quickly claimed Coca-Cola was run by Harold Hirsch, a Jew on the American company’s board. German Coke sales plummeted. Keith told Woodruff he should sack Hirsch, but he refused.
So Keith took steps to identify Coke with Nazism, including sending sales teams to mass patriotic events.
“As young men goose-stepped in formation at Hitler Youth rallies,” writes Pendergrast, “Coca-Cola trucks accompanied the marchers, hoping to capture the next generation.”

Not arguing with anything here except to say it has nothing to with Rompa Stompa or why foreigners prefer white men in US films. All I was saying is Rompa stompa is simply NOT being made to humanise white supremacy in Australia - quite the opposite.

In the history of capitalism, never has the market made a bold or brave statement to challenge the majority simply for the sake of making an ethical or moral stance, even if that meant a likeliness of losing profit or return.

There are surely some artists within the system who do challenge the majority or status quo.
However this is more so likely to happen in the realm of music than in film/TV.

Film and TV is exclusively a corporate terrain.

Well, This is issue you speak of about preference for white actors appears only in societies & cultures dictated or dominated by European colonialism or slavery.
Why is that?


FYI Australia is technically an ethnocracy.
Not as bad as Israel, but it still functions as one.
Check the stats.
Indegenious Australians have lower Life expectancy rates than thier white counterparts in a country with "universal healthcare"

Without a truly socialist society some people will always be treated unfairly.

Indegenious Australians have some of the lowest life expectancy and poverty rates in the entire world.

But No one will say anything about this because the Bernie bros are doing ok in Australia.

From Australia to U.S we measure society based on how well "white people are doing"
Even though black people in Australia are struggling like black and indegenious people in America. Australia is still considered a success because white people and patriarchy is still managing to get by.

Stop lying to yourself.
It's not an issue in public discourse. It doesn't make it past late night SBS programming.
Imagine if white Australian life expectancy rate was 45?
There would be revolution and international outcry.
We measure society based on how well white people are doing.






Aboriginal life expectancy
https://www.creativespiri...expectancy


Aboriginal health standards in Australia are now so low that almost half of Aboriginal men and over a third of women die before they turn 45.
Aboriginal life expectancy is more than 10 years below that of the average non-Aboriginal Australian.

I'll wait while you provide receipts of any major Australian Party (labour or liberal) discussing this issue or making the argument that we should implement funding to create the same social services that white Australia currently receives to also be accessible to Indegenious Australia.

https://www.pmc.gov.au/si...birth.html

Life expectancy at birth is widely used internationally as a measure of the general health of populations. Over the last 125 years, life expectancy at birth for the Australian population has increased by more than 30 years (from 47 years for males and 51 years for females in 1885) (ABS 2012b). There is currently a large gap in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. A recent study in the NT estimated that socio- economic disadvantage accounted for one-third to one-half of the gap in life expectancy (Zhao et al. 2013a). Social and economic factors such as poverty, racism, stressors, educational exposure and employment status impact on the individual's propensity to engage in health risk behaviours and on their access to the health system. These factors combined lead to increased risk of circulatory disease (Dong et al. 2004) and cancer (Kelly-Irving et al.

What makes you think I am not aware of the plight of the Indigenous Australians? That I am not shamed by how we have and are treating our fellow Australians? What makes you think I have done nothing to seek to help overcome this dire problem? The horror of the racism and the low life expectancy is recognised by Australian media (not all commentators, we have our Sean Hannity's) and by the major political parties - but with often ineffectual or even destuctive corrective actions.

.

All I said was that Romper Stomper, the movie did not promote acceptance of skinheads, it did not humanise them, it was not made for them or their sympathisers. It was a film made to show the violent, self destructive nature of this racist far right group. It was the type of movie you imagine cannot be made, yet it was. I fully expect that the TV series will not be a "Son's of Anarchy" style glorification of racism, crime and violence - which itself ended with a US TV/Hollywood-lite version of showing the self-destructive nature of their violence, racism and crime.

Yep, and it's no different here in the U.S. I grew up in the South Bronx. When those inner city neighborhoods were being devastated by heroin in the 70s & crack in the 80s (and the victims were mostly black & brown), the attitude was "lock up the savages and throw away the key".

Nowadays predominantly white suburban areas like Long Island are going through an opioid crisis and the attitude is a complete opposite from what it was towards crack users.

We are not so bad after all. Remember, Hollywood is first and foremost about benjamins.

You know what I blame? Lack of Religion.



Yep brainless action movies as well as horror movies are reesponsible for A HUGE CHUNK of foreign ticket sales for Hollywood. It easily translates and transcends cultures.

But that still leaves each nation to create their own movies specific to their own cultures, which is also good. And many times these movies make it to art houses here in the US as well.
