I always thought the movie stereotype/trope of native americans were stoic hardspoken people who are in a perpetual state of brow-furrowing
Traditionally, Native Americans have been portrayed as the uncivilized villains in film. According to Beverly R. Singer, “Despite the fact that a diversity of indigenous peoples had a legal and historical significance in the formation of every new country founded in the western hemisphere, in the United States and Canada the term ‘Indians’ became a hegemonic designation implying that they were all the same in regards to culture, behavior, language, and social organization. The view of Indians as savage and uncivilized was repeated in early films and crystallized the image of ‘Indians’ as dangerous and unacceptable to the normative lives of European immigrants whose lives appeared in films to be more valuable than those of the indigenous people they were colonizing.”
In most films involving Native Americans, they wear clothes made from animal skins, carry spears, and enjoy fighting with most strangers who come into their land. The warriors fight with arrowhead knives and brute strength. The settlers carry guns and weapons with them wherever they go in self-defense.
the most racist possible part of blazing saddles is when mel brooks casts himself as a sioux chief who only speaks yiddish, and at least that kept away from the cowboy movie trope of native americans being bloodthirsty savages
But does Stephen Colbert’s whole schtick even work? Do people realize ‘hey I’m kinda like this guy, maybe I should stop’ or are they like ‘well at least I’m not as bad as THIS dude’ and keep living? Or, maybe, on the parts they agree with, they’re like ‘well, this is clearly some agreeable trait they give him, so people listen to him or else he’s not human! And so I’m not a bad guy, it’s normal’ or maybe they just ignore it, and Stephen Colbert is just a scapegoat for liberals to laugh at while conservatives go do something else? What effect does this guy have? Quick, someone get me a sociologist
alright, assholes, we’re going to talk about anti-Semitism because it seems like no one else is
-A French “comedian” tries to do an upside-down Nazi salute in a feeble attempt to get people to ignore it. He calls it “anti-establishment” rather than anti-Semitic, despite being fined in France several times for hate speech aimed at Jews.
-Poll in Poland shows that 63% of those polled believe that Jews control the banks, that 18% believe Jews were responsible for the death of Christ, and that 13% believe that Jews use Christian blood for ritual purposes.
Apparently, the words “never again” mean very little to the rest of the world.
