I’ve always been on the mindset that to actively seek equality, one has to dismiss all the apparatus used to attain it when you finally achieve it. This goes along with my recent post about women who want equality but continually request that the bar be lowered so they can achieve it.
This belief doesn’t end with women. It also applies to race as well. I don’t think that equal opportunity means equal unless you’re black, brown, yellow, or off white. I believe that equal means achieving on merit and not color. Clearly I am anti-affirmative action because this policy has done more harm than 200 years of slavery for equality and race relations.
I am reminded of this when I see things like Tyler Perry shitting out yet another really bad movie aimed specifically black audiences. I find it offensive not only because he is simply taking advantage of an under-represented audience, but because he is making oodles of money from it.
He is a no-talent hack who can barely act much less write believable dialog. I don’t really know whats worse to be honest… that people actually find that pile of shit he keeps excreting entertaining or that he is shamelessly pandering to a racial profile.
