    Robert Downey has always been one of my favorite actors and I really anticipating Iron Man but his next choice of movie roles has me a bit upset.

    Tropic Thunder

    For one thing I don't think that we've gotten to the point where a white dude can put on black make-up and "act" like a black dude. It's Amos & Andy all over again.

    Secondly...I'm pretty sure there are plenty of black actors in Hollywood who could have taken that role. If white dudes are playing blacks in the movies, then they won't have any use for us at all. I know that this is a comedy, but it can have some very bad effects unless there's a huge controversy and backlash.

    Coming soon... Leonardo DiCaprio in the Emitt Till story...

    I'd say so myself as well! But cut me a fucking break though it's a comedy with Ben Stiller...You can't take this shit serious enough to spark controversy or a riot about it..

    Amos & Andy was a comedy too...

    Are you telling me that there aren't enough black actors in Hollywood that Stiller and Downey had to make one up? Nowadays you can't get away with what Pacino did in Scarface (an Italian playing a Cuban) and probably can't get away with what Jennifer Lopez did (A Puerto Rican playing a Mexican) so why should we let this fly?

    It works better when you can actually deeplink things buddy...

    And yeah, I wasn't a fan of White Chicks either...for them dressing up as white folks and the fact that the movie sucked.

    But moreover, there is a double standard or whites imitating blacks and blacks imitating whites...understandibly so!

    it's the same thing as white chix. they could've got a white actor to play the role, but it's comedy, and anything goes ...

    It was comedy back in the 20's & 30's w/ the "Black Faces".

    People always want to Omit the context of things in every racial debate.


    There IS a double standard in this country.

    How can someone bring up "white chicks" & ignore the fact that whites have been ridiculing blacks for years...

    Sambos, Black face, Pick-a-ninnyism

    -years when blacks could do nothing in the media to respond back.

    WHite chicks does not make up for all those years of whites humiliating blacks in the media from cartoons to variety shows.

    Remember the various "looney toon" characters who would look into a pipe with TNT in it only to have it explode in his face...then tada!! Oh look; black face!!

    & the whites would erupt with laughter....


    I guess Robert Downey JR is just pickin up where the other whites left off back in the day.....


    they should know better....

    white people always take this race shit too far....(nappy headed hoes-remember that?)

    they just don't seem to ever get it....

    maybe that 'black face' is from the aftermath of a TNT blowing up on your face, conspiracy brother. that was the past, these days your telling me black comedians don't mock white people in their skits? but then again there is kramer who flipped out at the african brothers while performing lol. career suicide ...

    race = stereotypes = comedy (@ times) ...
