Who is your favorite black(african american)actor ? Mine would have to be Morgan Freedman. Humping Miss Daisy... I know he was..............I'm probably going to be banned :) Seriously, he is my favorite........... Ray Charles doesn't count, although he does play a GREAT blind singer.
A better question to me is why are we so politically correct that we use
the term "African/American". How many blacks in the USA were born in
Africa or have even traveled there? Why is it more important to be African
than American? Why don't I get a special designator like "Eastern European
My best friend's family has been in this country since the mid 1800's. He is black. My family came over in the early 1900's. I am white. We are both just Americans with no prefixes, and that's the way it should be.
To answer your question, my favorite black actor is Lawrence Fishburne.
I'd have to agree with VWHobo, as far as the Politically Corect statement goes, however, my favorite would have to be either Will Smith, or Martin Lawrence.
To be very truthfull, in my area we are not politically correct, whites blues, yellows, browns all get along. Very good point, why do the blacks call each other nigger and think it's funny? call whites crackers, and we don't care. White boy call them a nigger and the fight is on, I don't understand. Don't want to hear about 200 years of oppression.
Here is something to think about. What if you were born in Africa, move to the USA and become a citizen but you are white! What would you be then? You should be a African-American because that is what you are. Would you then get the benafits becoming of being an African-American, or would you just be considered a normal white individual and not get anything?
Sorry forgot, favorite black actor has to be Samuel L. Jackson
You'd then be known as South African...
Don't ask me why but somehow I'm a big fan of Wesley Snipes... You know he's not that big and all...
it's called a loop-hole
you could put yourself down as Af/American, and anyone that disputed and said that you were not one could face a lawsuit for discrimination
abusing the system can be a good thing
Abuse, by definition, is never good.
if someone abuses the system, costs you tax dollars, and causes you grief,
and you get the opportunity to use a loop-hole that will benefit you, would
you take it?
yes, it's all good to say, from a moral standpoint, that abusing the system is bad
but when it comes down to it, will that prevent you from doing what countless others do?
and for the record, yes, generally speaking, any abuse is bad stuff
I see a loop-hole as a detail missed. To make use of a loop-hole then is
to find an opening.
Abuse: Having receipts for $1,500.00 in deductions, but claiming $2,000.00 (or more) knowing the odds for the audit are slim. Abusive and illegal.
A loop-hole: Donating to a 501C3 and denying the government some cash...legal.
All white Africans are not born or live in South Africa. I hope it was just you not knowing better and not being in some way racists?
Perhaps you can answer this question for us. Why is it that whenever
people have a dialog that pertains to race, some dildo (in this case you)
has to come along and start insinuating one or more of the people are
If someone thought that a white person from Africa must be South African they might be mistaken, confused, uninformed, ignorant or wrong but not racist. On the other hand they might know that around 98% of all caucasians that live in Africa come from South Africa and assumed. Or horror of horrors, he was trying to inject a bit of humor. Speaking of which;
Two guys work together - a black guy and a white guy. The black guy notices that the white guy always came to work with a smile on his face. He asks him, "Man, how come you come to work with a smile on your face every day?"
The white guy replied "That's because I make love to my wife every morning before work." Amazed the black guy asks him how he gets his wife to make love to him every morning. "That's easy," the white guy said. "I just tell her the same poem when I wake up: Blondie, Blondie, eyes so blue, I just love waking up and making love to you!"
Determined, the black guy decides to take his friend's advice.
The next day the black guy shows up to work all beat to hell - black eyes, broken nose, fat lip... the works. The white guy says, "Man, what happened to you?" The black guy says "I don't know, I went home and tried your advice." "Well, what poem did you tell your wife?" the white guy asked.
The black guy replied: "Nappy head, Nappy head, eyes like a frog, If I could roll your fat ass over, I'd do you like a dog!"
I'll have to add that one to my list of "good one."
You're not implying anything, eh? What about this;
It seems to me that you yabber so much you don't remember what it is that you're saying, typing, insinuating or implying. Bottom line is you are the person who introduced the word racist to this discussion. That is a fact, not an opinion.
I was implying that it would seem racist that white people could only live in South Africa. What would someone white who comes from Zimbadwe read that message? If he is like you he would blow his top and and call Barvarianwheels racists because his comment suggests if he doesn't come from South Africa he has to be black! Assuming and playing the percentage game is not the right way to take this subject because if your not 100% right you could be labeled a racist even if your not! Good joke by the way
lets get back on topic folks...my fav is Dave Chapelle
This pretty simple really. Read all of the posts above. YOU are the one who inserted the issue of racism into the discussion. Nowhere in my post did I say it was right (if you can read, I said exactly the opposite) but it is still not racism as YOU suggest. Think about it.
that would involve WORK!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
*a look of shock fills my face at the suggestion*
Then I guess playing the "assuming" game on my "implications" is also like playing the "percentages game" you accuse me of and thus you're not 100% right either. You are now labeled WRONG and unable to discuss without the dreaded "foot in mouth" disease.
I was not implying anything, I was just using an example to show what you said was incorrect. I never called anyone an racist or even ignorant.
But if you think otherwise, well thats your opinion and I'll respect that.
I just saw this old thread and thought it would be worth reviving for the joke. Damn I'm funny.
I forgot his name, but the guy who played in john Q
Samuel Jackson. I know he did a bad job for the most part in the Star Wars movies, but they were written horribly. Anyone ever seen unbreakable?
mine will have to be either Samuel L Jackson or Denzel Washington - he was good on Man On Fire
have to agree with you on that one my friend:clap: very god movie right there:laughing:
yes, lots of shooting when the action starts!
yeah, i thought it was funny when someone didnt give him an answer he just shot them in the hand... or stuck C4 up their ass
the c4 bit was a laugh!
yeah... i wanna kno what the guy was thinking when he woke up... it was probably something like
ha yeah! he was going on saying hes got all the time in the worl etc
i also like Jay Chandrasekhar, (writer, director) of Super Troopers
Denzel Washington. He really knows what he's doing.
like superjew said years before me
I'm going to say Samuel L. Jackson, the unforgettable Jules of Pulp
Fiction, but a close second is Denzel Washington, especially for his
performance in Training Day.
Jamie Foxx is moving up the rankings though...
did you see collateral ?
he's great in that movie
Probably Will Smith. I liked his July 4th dominance for a while there...
wait... who was the one guy with the white guy who had the funny moustace in the recent movie Miami Vice? cause he was good in it... i probably kno who it is but i cant think of his name right now
jamie foxx isnt it
Big Willy (Will Smith) as an action actor & Martin Lawrence as a comedian
Yes, Michael Mann is one of my favorite directors (Though I haven't seen
Miami Vice yet). Heat is one of my favorite movies of all time.
For all the Will Smith fans, I like him in his comedies/comedy romances. I just can't stand him in action or dramas.
yeah, thats it. thanks.
saw that movie not too long ago and it was an ok movie... not one of the best. although there were alot of sex scenes in it:thumbs:
I didn't think he was particularly great in Ali, but boy, Enemy of the State I could watch a million times!!
i saw that the other day, boy what a great film! i think he was great in bad boys 1 & 2
