Mr. Josh Wickett - Victim of Racism - has written many constructive articles analyzing racism in motion pictures; check it out. Since I began reading his counter-racist film reviews, I began paying much closer attention to movies. As a rule... White Supremacy dominates the silver screen - and all other areas of people activity.

I now make an effort to ask White people about their favorite films. I began doing this about a year ago. I noted that many of White folks' favorite flicks are overtly racist - Pulp Fiction, Forrest Gump, The Godfather, Gone With The Wind. And I mean blatantly racist - the Ku Klux Klan will literally ride across the screen.

Recently, a White man recommended Snatch (2000). It's basically 2 hours of White people fighting with each other over an avocado-sized diamond. This could be part 2 of Blood Diamond; the non-white people butcher each other to collect the stones. The jewels are then moved to the area of the world known as Europe; now, the White people there will fight amongst themselves for the extracted gems.

While the White people deceive, fight and kill each other... they use non-whites as tools to accomplish their goals. The non-whites [pictured above] in this film are prototype victims. Confused, ill-informed, incompetent... silly, stupid, pitiful. They botch everything from robbing a booking house to parallel parking.

Their crowning jewel of blunders comes midway through the film. The three negro males attempt to mug The Man. As non-whites got meager resources, the negroes are reduced to purchasing replica firearms - with the hope that no one will notice. 3 black males armed with 2 faux pistols. The White man addresses his assailants - while sippin' a dark beer:
You're shrinking. And the fact that you've got "Replica" written on the side of your gun... and the fact that I've got "Desert Eagle .50" written on the side of mine, should precipitate your balls into shrinking along with your presence.
Exit VORS. Brilliant illustration of White Supremacy. The non-whites and their toy guns encounter a Suspected White Supremacist who is keeping it real. This scene is loaded with sexual metaphors. I kept hearing Dr. Welsing's voice - keep your eyes on the ball(s). With the gun as a phallic representation, the black males are emasculated when juxtaposed to the awesome force of the White man and his real, big cock.

Anywho, all ends well in this film. All the White people that you want to do well succeed. The White people you dislike die. And the non-white males are the only ones heading to jail - surprise.
