Woody Allen Says He Won’t Hire A Black Actor Unless The Role Calls For One 

hermione-ganja:

abagond:

So, you know Woody Allen, of course. The filmmaker who’s seemingly been a critics’ darling, since the early 70’s; Your typical liberal New Yorker, who also loves to play jazz. But there’s that one thing though. You know what I’m talking about. That one thing that’s been whispered about, or even loudly discussed, ever since Allen’s started writing and directing his own films. And that thing is, the fact that you never see black people in his movies.

And considering that most of his films have been set in New York, one of the most racially diverse cities on the entire planet, how is it that black people are virtually non-existent in his films?

Well that’s not entirely true. There have been a few exceptions. There was Sonia Rolland playing Josephine Baker in “Midnight in Paris,” although she was basically relegated to the background, as an extra with no lines. And there was Hazelle Goodman in his 1997 film “Deconstructing Harry,” playing… take a guess, a prostitute but of course.

And that’s about as much as I can come up with.

So what’s the problem? Why hasn’t Allen had black actors in his films?

Well, he was just recently asked that question in a profile about him, in the New York Observer (HERE). When asked why black actors haven’t appeared in his films, the writer of the piece states that Allen was “horrified” when the subject was brought up.

But Allen has his reasons. It’s very simple. According to the filmmaker: “Not unless I write a story that requires it. You don’t hire people based on race. You hire people based on who is correct for the part. The implication is that I’m deliberately not hiring black actors, which is stupid. I cast only what’s right for the part. Race, friendship means nothing to me except who is right for the part.”

O.K. you want to run that by me again. Talk about contradictory. He doesn’t hire a black actor unless the story requires it but at the same time he doesn’t hire based on race. HUH? I’ve read it a few times already and still doesn’t make sense.

But not to fear because Allen is friends with both Chris Rock, who he once took out to dinner in Rome and Spike Lee “I’m friendly with Spike Lee. We don’t socialize, but I don’t socialize with anyone.” There’s a punchline: “I don’t have white friends either.”

Oh that Woody. Always good for a laugh.

So what do you say about this or you really don’t care? Or is Allen really being upfront and honest about how many filmmakers think. That is unless the part actually calls for a black or POC actor it’s not even on their wavelength. That should not be really surprise anyone should it?

The message is basically if you’re a black actor don’t bother showing up at any casting calls for Allen’s movie. But hey, Tyler is still hiring.


I just watched “Hannah & Her Sisters”. It had a cameo of Bobby Short, but the only repeating Black character was a maid who hardly says anything.  

Unsurprisingly, Woody Allen continues to be a piece of shit.

Man shot dead by police in Walmart 'after he picked up a toy gun'

Will it ever end?

"LeeCee Johnson, who has claimed to be the mother of Mr Crawford’s two children, said she was speaking to him on the telephone when police descended on the scene.

Dayton Daily News report her as saying: ‘We was just talking. He said he was at the video games playing videos and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were.

‘And the next thing I know, he said “It’s not real,” and the police start shooting and they said “Get on the ground,” but he was already on the ground because they had shot him.’

‘And I could hear him just crying and screaming. I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.’

Hopefully they release the tapes soon……

they just don’t give a fuck

Remember all the white people carrying assault rifles in target? Cause I do.

Police have yet to comment on claims but say officers acted ‘appropriately’

White people can open carry actual loaded assault rifles in Target, but a black man holds a toy in the toy section of a Wal-Mart and not only does someone call the police, not only do the police show up before he’s out of the toy section, not only do the police murder this father of two before he can react, but they receive approval from the department for doing so.

The police don’t see us as humans. They see us as animals, and they will not hesitate to kill us in cold blood. Fuck the police. There’s no such thing as a good cop.

Anonymous said: But breasts ARE sexual organs? They release oxytocin when stimulated, that makes them sexual.

petitedeath:

algrenion:

ive had to deal w this argument before ok listen here

boobs do the oxytocin thing when theyre stimulated yes, nipples are an erogenous zone. Men’s nipples do this too. Now read over those two sentences and let the double standard dawn on you okay? Think about it if both kinds of nips release oxytocin when you do the touch touch on them, why is only one kind of nip considered a sexual nip? sexism that’s why

it’s ridiculous and technically makes a dude’s nipples more inappropriate than a lady’s nipples because boy nipples serve virtually no other purpose than to be stimulated by temperature change or by sexual activity, while girl nipples serve the added purpose of oh you know, feeding babies no big deal

but nah man nah both can be aroused so both nips are sexual or no nips are so make up your mind

you know where else is an erogenous zone?? ears. Are you wearing an ear bra/?? Why the fuck arent you wearing your fucking ear bra you trash put on yoourfucking ear bra youre not allowed to show your fucking ears thats so inappropriate and its makinng me horny its distracting me from my school work youre not following the dresscode wear your fucking ear bra yo ufucking

I would like to add as someone who knows a thing or two about breastfeeding that oxytocin isnt necessarily related to sex as the release of oxytocin that comes with nipple stimulation actually does not necessarily cause arousal but instead signals to the body to produce milk and cause what is called “let down” (when your boobs swell with milk)

And some people may use that as an argument that men are different, but they would be wrong. Why? because men do this too! Now a womans body is more set up to start making milk because she has had 9 months of hormonal and body changes to let her body know to adjust and start making milk.. and by the end of the 9 months..it knows. Most men havent had that experience so it takes a bit of time of an infant sucking at the nipple for the body to go “oh, shit, I need to make milk”
But it does do it. And there have been cis men who have successfully initiated breastfeeding. Just as there have been successful breastfeeding by parents who never had biological kids of their own.

So I dont want to hear that excuse

in what way are women more emotional when we are taught from birth to keep it in and keep quiet, whilst men are encouraged to get angry and loud and are often praised for hurting people over the smallest of things

Brimfield PD (Ohio) - This is the new puppy at training today….we don’t think the bullet proof vest fits….just yet

Cops need to fuck off with this K-9 shit.Dogs are awesome and sweet, stop turning them into tools of oppression and subjugation.

And especially stop using cruelty and abuse* to do it.
*Often called “training” in the industry.

One of the vet’s offices I worked for was the go-to animal clinic for police dogs in the city where I used to live. Every, single one of those dogs was completely out of control and prone to attacking both humans and pets. Their “training” (which we saw examples of multiple times… it often consisted of slapping the dog or “dominance” bullshit) apparently didn’t include an off switch.
In the 3 years I worked for that particular clinic, we had at least 6 fights between K-9 police and other animals and 2 bites because their handlers insisted they had them under control. After the second (serious) bite, we had to require all K-9 officers to be muzzled upon entering the clinic. 
There were at least 2 handlers who actively encouraged their dogs to bark at the cats boarding there through the glass to the cat room. I had to ask one of them 4 times to stop, and he told me he was “just letting the dog have a little fun” and that “it won’t hurt the fucking cats,” before pouting like a child in the waiting room.
Fuck. All. Cops.

These dogs are a mess from start to finish. They’re intentionally bred to be over-the-top and out of control (people like to call it “drive” but a biological drive is different from being constantly over the stimulus threshold all the time). The training makes it even worse, and what you end up with is a majority of K-9 and military dogs that are completely untrustworthy time bombs.

What makes it almost worse is the department we worked with imported GSD/malinois mixes for 20,000 dollars plus per dog. Then, if that dog didn’t “pass” their abusive, nasty training course, they—get this—gave them away to local families for “protection.”
Talk about time bombs. Shit’s unimaginably irresponsible.

reblogging because i’ve seen this image on my dash a lot lately without the commentary on how fucked up police dogs are. 

My parents gave away their dog to the RCMP after I was born. He tried to kill literally the first cop he saw after training and was shot to death.

And don’t forget that the dogs are trained to “hit” on drugs & etc. whenever the handler wants them to.


Another problem for gauging the reliability of canines is the bias of their handlers. In a 2011 study published in Animal Cognition, the sniffing accuracy of 18 trained dogs was tested over two days. The dogs’ handlers had experience in drug and bomb detection. They were falsely told that the scents of drugs and bombs had been planted in rooms of the church where the test took place and that some of these points were marked by a piece of red paper. Recorders, who weren’t told the purpose of the study followed the dogs to write down where they raised an alert. Out of 144 searches, 123—involving 17 of the 18 dogs—raised a false alert. Most strikingly, the handlers were most likely to claim their dogs picked up a nonexistent scent when they saw a piece of red paper.



The researchers concluded that handlers cue their dogs, deliberately or not, and this affects the animals’ accuracy.
