Actress blasts 'white Emmys'

Christine Kellett
September 8, 2010

Veteran African-American actress Regina King has hit out at the Emmy Awards judging panel, accusing it of snubbing non-white performers.

The Jerry Maguire star, who has more than 20 film and television credits to her name, wrote an open letter of complaint following this month's awards ceremony, titled The Emmys: As White As Ever.

In it, she questioned why only 53 non-white actors had been nominated in the history of the awards "out of nearly 1,000 possible nominations in the top four acting categories for drama and comedy."

This year, there were none.

That's how these slimy these people are. I doubt black people even watch that stupid award show. The Oscars used to be lilly white too but they're a little bit better now, at least two or sometimes three well deserved Black actors or actresses get recognized for their work every year.

Regina has a point but she should have kept her head down and not use terms like "Whiter than Ever" as it is only going to hurt her career in the white dominated media.

From chinanumber1:

English-speaking countries look down on Chinese people

This is a topic that I thought about for a long time before posting but i've pretty much come to the conclusion that the vast majority of english speaking western countries (U.K., U.S., Australia, etc..) hate Asian men. Look at how the media portrays asian men as weak, effeminate, asexual, and sometimes retarded. There are almost zero positive role models in Hollywood when it comes to asian men and most of the asian roles are immediately replaced by white people when they get the chance. You only have to look at movies like "21" and "Avatar: The last airbender" to get the feeling that they don't really want any asian influences in western movies.

Then there is the fact that most English speaking western nations have fought against asian countries at one point or another with mixed results. Racist slurs like "gook" "chink" "nip" came from wartime activities. Just look at how popular culture portrays asian women as weak, submissive, and sexually promiscuous people for white men to have fun with while asian men are reviled as enemies and or "aliens" or "gooks" to kill or mock. This theme is repeated over and over again in war movies and tv series..when was the last time you saw an asian man who wasn't a villain or some demented weakling on U.S. TV? It's rare to the point of being almost nonexistant.

Even though there are asian-americans who literally fought and bled for America all this stuff is ignored because we are the neglected minority. Did you know that Asian-Americans had the most medal of honor recipients in WW 2 out of _any_ minority group as well as the most decorated unit in WW2 history? Probably not because American schools don't teach anything that hints at any positive portrayals of Asian-Americans.

How often does Western media ever have Asian models?

In keeping with their racist stereotyping, they rarely use Asians, even though Asians are thousands of times more beautiful than the freakish looking Anglos!

Asians are almost non existent and never seems to be the main character or some big role.

The actress doesn't look Philipino. Philipinos are dark skinned. She looks Chinese though.
Anyway, why didn't the actress decline such an insulting role in the first place?  For money?
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
