Diversity and Gender Representation in Movies

The issue is her flawed viewpoint is one that some users on here think is 100% right so it is valid to bring it up and one cannot ignore as it shows the flaw of individuals who support 'your side'. 

 

The problem is that there is no real case or evidence that the lack of diversity with critics has lead to films with diversity to get bad reviews from critics from 'out of touch white people'.  That is something some users on here and the actress have tried to push with nothing to back up that statement. 

 

My point it is great to have more diversity with critics but there was never a serious racism or sexism issue in the first place with critic reviews. 

 

That's. Not. What. She. Said.

Only about 62% of the US is white. Of course you're ok with the critic split to be 82%, you have no sense of anything it seems.

actually it's higher than 62% when you take the UK into consideration too

Lord this is sexist as FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCK

it's a statistical fact that women take time off to raise kids. Calling someone sexist over bringing this important bit of information up is counter productive. leave the debates to terrestrial because you are obviously thick as shit kid

Then why would anyone or anybody get offended about white people reviewing films about diversity? 

 

She did not say "I would like to see more diverse viewpoints"

 

She Said "I dont care what they have to say".

 

That is a clear distinction and a deeply flawed and troubling one.

UK Population - 66.02 mil, I'll estimate 80% white, as it was 82% in 2011. 52,816,000 are white.

US Population - 325,719,178, 60.7% white. 197,711,541 are white.

Total Population - 391,739,178, 250,527,541 white. About 64%

WTF are you talking about? Nobody got "offended" by white people reviewing films "about diversity".

 

She said she cares more about a diverse critics opinion about a diverse movie, rather than a white critics opinion about a diverse movie.

It's a statistical fact that men take time off to raise kids. (it's true! men raise children too!)

"I dont need a white males telling me what I should think about this movie"

 

using that logic non fanboys cannot review films about franchises that they do not know about. 

 

My review of crazy rich Asians is not as valid as I am indian lol

 

Where do you start and where do you end?

it's nowhere near as many though is it mate?

 

Best way to get an answer for this 'racial discrimination' is to see how many people from different cultures actually apply to be a critic. I'm guessing people are picked for their writing merits and not to do with skin colour and gender. A critics job is hardly an important job in the grand scheme of things, seems to me that people are overreacting but then again this is 2018

This. Wouldn't. Prove. Anything.

 

Do you even read the posts here? Or do you just reply with nonsense because you're bored?

how would it not? so if you're telling me 10 people applied to be a critic and all were white it proves nothing? or if 9 out of 10 of the applicants were of an ethnic minority and they didn't get the job it still proves nothing? really?

That’s exactly why a white savior complex movie is taking critics awards over stuff like Beale Street, BlacKkKlansman and Black Panther
