A group calling itself “Guardians of Peace” has been releasing the hacked emails of Hollywood producers and film executives. Among the items they have leaked was this exchange between Sony executives speculating about Emperor Barack’s favorite movies.
“Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?” said Pascal, with Rudin replying “12 YEARS.”
“Or the butler. Or think like a man?” continued Pascal, who is a major donor for the Democratic party and President Obama.
“Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart,” said Rudin.
So the joke is, I guess, that the African-American emperor prefers to see movies featuring African-Americans. That seems to a pretty innocuous observation; a bit like speculating that Joe Biden likes movies like “Forrest Gump” and “I Am Sam” that feature mentally challenged white dudes. Further, it is borne out that black audiences are drawn to movies with black characters and black themes. This is pretty much the entire basis of Spike Lee’s career.
But I am wondering what if, instead of liberal Hollywood Democrats, that same email exchange had taken place between employees of FoxNews or Glenn Beck? Fair to say the MFM would be getting pretty lathered up, n’est-ce pas?
