It was no surprise to learn that a Sony exec and a Hollyweirdo exposed their real thoughts on Obama, black films, etc. Big fricking deal.
But now Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal is ready to begin the “healing process,” and reached out to the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
“I’m being proactive,” the executive tells The Hollywood Reporter. “And I want to accept responsibility for these stupid, callous remarks.”
Pascal said one of the first calls she made today — after a leaked email exchange between her and producer Scott Rudin became the most buzzed-about topics in town and throughout the country — was to Jackson.”It was a very preliminary conversation, and we just talked about getting together and hoping to discuss a healing process,” Pascal said. Of being labeled a racist, she added, “I know it’s not true. And I know that doesn’t reflect who I am or what I feel or what I’ve done. That certainly doesn’t reflect this studio and what we’ve done here.”
So what they torqued Obama’s nipples a bit over his love of black films. Everybody knows Obama’s favorite movie is Snakes on a Plane. Let’s face it; when Obama and his staff are on the AF1, that’s exactly what is aboard: snakes on a plane.
And these Leftist morons are apologizing for what they really feel, and they are not even wrong! They were in effect lampooning themselves or certainly those like them.
Hollywood makes these B-level films, and then they laugh behind the backs of these idiot actors. Occasionally they sprinkle a bona fide white star in, as they did with Leonardo di Caprio in Django Unchained. They do this to make the film more financially viable, but mostly to satisfy the black nationalists in Hollyweird.
Don’t expect the sellouts to complain. The black actors like Jamie Foxx or Samuel L. Jackson will not buck the system, because it’s the very system that feeds them. Amy Pascal may ask Sharpton or Jackson for forgiveness, but behind the scenes things will be quite different. Can you say, “Blacklist!”
These people were right to question Obama’s choice in film. Given his policies, one must believe that Obama would find films like Soul Plane deep and enriching.
For the record, Obama doesn’t watch black films, he studies them. Black film is the closest Obama can get to black culture.
As for Sharpton, she said he accepted her apologies. “He was very warm,” she said. “I told him I’m coming to New York and will speak with him.”
