Affirmative Action Is Like A Box Of Chocolate

So we got the new “Karate Kid” movie out. Stars Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith. Now why Jaden Smith? Well that’s Will Smith’s Son!

Will Smith himself is a likeable person for the most part, but he hasn’t displayed Acting Talents of a Super Star. Then again what makes a Super Star?

Being a Super Star is not saying anything about an Actors ability to convey something through his Art as a Thespian. Remember All Adult Actors are referred to as a “Porn Star”. The value of the word “Star” was diluted with a key stroke or stroke of a pen or some kind of stroke.

Now ever since the beginning of children of Movies Stars becoming Actors to follow in the craft of their parent(s) there has been a percieved problem of Nepotism. Some have used their real family names to avoid such talk and/or have purposely requested small parts to hone their skills. Others of lesser character opt for the Fast Track, which can make them a Shooting Star with a Life Span to match.

Now back to Will Smith…Ever since the 70’s Black Actors were starting to be foisted upon American Society in Film, Stage and Television. Now there were some mixing of the Races at the Movie Theater, but not at home. No, because a Man’s home is his Castle and that would have been perceived as a Home Invasion by some folks.

Call it Racist, Bigoted or Xenophobic it doesn’t matter. It’s like A good review versus a bad review, but nothing is worse than no review.

We, Us Americans or some that will speak for them feel inundate with Actors of a different stripe thrown at us and stuffed down our throats. You got Will Smith, Wesley Snipes, Danny Glover and some other guy who doesn’t come to mind right now. Now the guy who I can’t remember has at least played a Bad Guy in a movie. The other 3 always have to be the Protagonist, but come off more like a False Protagonist.

We have Ellen Degeneres foisted upon us for some unknown, but I know reason. American Express commercials, Judge on some show and all over the Internet. I mean it reminds me of the days leading up to a big Rock Band coming to town with all the airplay of the Band’s music on the Radio Station. I actually remember hearing someone calling into a Station and stated just that “Dude! Nuff with tha Elton John music already!”

So we will now have the Son of a False Actor foisted upon us.

Now you my ask yourself ” Is this my beautiful House and is this my beautiful Wife?” and the answer is No because it was made by the EEOC Branch in Hollywood. You my ask yourself “How does this tie in with Affirmative Action?” but to explain it would make for a bad joke.

The Black population of the United States is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get.

I wonder how Bruce Willis would have done as the Teacher? Would he be able to call or refer to the “Kid” as a boy? If he did would the “Karate Kid” say “Whatchoo talkin’ bout Willis?”
