Rush Limbaugh: Idris Elba Can’t Be James Bond Because He’s Black

Published

on

Radio personality, Republican troll and race baiter Rush Limbaugh thinks Sony executive Amy Pascal suggesting Idris Elba play James Bond is the a terrible idea because Elba is, well, Black.

“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period,” the buffoon lampooned on his radio show Tuesday. “That is who James Bond is, was. But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably even point this out.”

The ridiculous rhetoric stems from a leaked Pascal email that read, “Idris should be the next bond.” Pascal wrote the email on January 4, 2014 email to Elizabeth Cantillon, former executive vice president of production for Columbia Pictures.

    Obviously he meant that his comment would be perceived as racist today
    even though its just his opinion on the subject. People today are just
    too dumb and reactive to realize this. That said, this is just more
    evidence that Rush is getting older and outlasting his welcome in an
    increasingly feeble minded society that sees racism, sexism and all
    kinds of other isms in everything instead of common sense. I hope he
    retires before his career is ruined because of yet another
    misunderstanding that the main stream media turns into a witch hunt.

    He’s an idiot! He should tell that garbage to hollywood execs who keep putting white people as leads in anime films. Lead roles that should have been played by Asians but went to whites instead. Street Fighter, Dragon Ballz, Mortal Kombat, Avatar: The Last Air Bender…to name a few. Why is his ass silent on that??

    He needs to have several seats!! Idris will make a great James Bond not because of his color, but because of his acting abilities! Hater!!

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Published

on

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
