One of the stranger tropes of recent years is People of Identity demanding they be given work because they are tired.

For example, from the Los Angeles Times news section:

‘We are tired’: Read the open letter 270 fed-up Latinx writers just sent Hollywood

Tanya Saracho, creator of “Vida” and founder of the Untitled Latinx Project, which endeavors to increase Latinx representation in television.

By GREG BRAXTON STAFF WRITER OCT. 15, 202011 AM

Lin-Manuel Miranda, John Leguizamo and “One Day at a Time” co-creator Gloria Gloria Calderón Kellett are among 270 showrunners, creators, television and film writers who are calling for systemic change in the entertainment industry in regard to Latinx artists.

The group of writers and producers outlined their concerns in an open letter to Hollywood written in conjunction with Hispanic Heritage Month, which ends today. “We are tired,” they write.

Generally speaking, most people looking for jobs try to act like energetic eager beavers ready to go, but lately, PoI’s demanding more affirmative action sinecures tend to emphasize how exhausted they are.

Maybe that’s actually a clever ploy in that it could imply that they won’t insist on screwing things up too badly as long as they are allowed to nap in the corner while the real workers get the job done?

But I suspect the People of Identity see themselves as Heroes of Exhaustion, like Indiana Jones:

  1. One big problem with TV today is a lack of Latinx. When I turn on the TV I search for any Latinxers. Sometimes I see a news reporter who speaks unaccented English,but then states their name sounding like Desi Arnaz.
    Then I close my eyes and doze,its so exhausting.

    Well, a tip of my hat to the Latinexes. They have the entire of the beautiful month of October as their month but are ending it on the 15th, leaving the second half for the rest of us.

    Hey LQBTQs, take a hint. Don’t glom up the entire month of June for yourselves.

    Latino’s write shitty scripts. It’s that simple. They tend to be corny, inconsistent, yet predictable.

    Anyone unlucky enough to attend a Latino film festival would agree.

    If the stories are poorly conceived and executed, people won’t pay to see it. It won’t matter if it’s a story about Mexicans, or Julius Caesar. If the script sucks, it sucks.

    If they want to tell silly Mexican stories, they should go to Mexico and tell them.

    Latinos aren’t the cultural peers of Western Europeans. Assimilate or be left behind, but don’t try to ride in on the coattails of blacks, whom we have a long American history with, and who write better screenplays collectively, and give us shit because you culturally aren’t our peers and can’t measure up to what’s required for a modern screenplay.

    You currently ain’t got the chops, Pedro. If you did, you wouldn’t be begging us for work.

    The Japanese have some elaborate protocols about work. For example, a Japanese student once explained to me this expectation that you not leave work until your boss has left work is something of an empty gesture.

    You don’t have to work until your boss leaves work, you just have to be in the office and look like you might be working. So, while waiting for your boss to leave, you might sit in your cubicle playing computer games or emailing friends. But you certainly don’t want to advertise that fact.

    Your boss is, however, waiting for his boss to leave, and may be playing computer games just like you. Your boss’s boss has to wait until the main boss leaves, and this boss may be snoozing in his private office, waiting until time to go out drinking. Which everyone does at 11:00 pm because they’ve all been pretending to work for the past 5 hours.

    Anyway, the term “Latinxs” sounds terrible in Latin languages, it’s not even clear how one would pronounce it… Or why anyone would use this term. If you want to avoid a gender then why don’t you just say “Latin” then…

    Hollywood power brokers are complicit in our exclusion.

    Hollywood power brokers are mostly Jews… So maybe Jews are against telling Latino stories? Or maybe Latino stories are not profitable? I don’t know… Latinos tend to like soap operas… Or, if not, movies with Vin Diesel or “The Rock”. Not artsy films about Latinos like “Roma”…

    Or maybe most Latinos just don’t write a lot of good scripts? I don’t know… There were some very good Latin American writers, Borges, Octavio Paz, etc… But screenwriting is not a strength in the region… I don’t know why… Maybe it’s really that they like soap operas. One of the most famous current Latinx writers, Isabel Allende, is very soap operish. Even Garcia Marquez was a bit soapy.

    If they want to tell silly Mexican stories, they should go to Mexico and tell them.

    Isn’t this the point? With rapidly increasing Hispanic audiences in the US accounting for a disproportionate fraction of theater audiences, who would know their storyline tastes better than a Hispanic film writer. Who would appeal to their sense of aesthetics better than Hispanic directors and actors. There is a bottom line logic to the film industry hiring more Hispanics. By the way, just around the time Hispanics surpassed blacks in number, shouldn’t we have seen the rise of ‘Spicsploitation production companies.

    Best was always ready with this self-deprecating put-down when questioned on his lifestyle.

    I spent 90% of my money on women, drink and fast cars. The rest I wasted,” he was often quoted as saying.

    The ultimate laddish tale tells of the night when a waiter delivering champagne to Best’s hotel room saw thousands of pounds of casino winnings and the current Miss World both arranged tastefully on the bed.

    The scene prompted the legendary question: “Mr Best, where did it all go wrong?

  30. First of all, if all these job applicants are going to claim they are People of Identity, I’m gonna need to see some ID.

    Then, the question is, what do you put on your resume for the Hollywood HR departments if you’re a Person of Color and also positive with the Corona? “I’m sick and tired. I believe my employment at Hidden Agenda Studios would be mutually beneficial … blah, blah ..”

    Finally, “how much sick time may I expect?”:

    “I’m gonna take a sick day, I’m so sick of you people!”

    Father, you’re gonna wanna keep your eyes open for this one. Here’s a Latinx on TV who makes me feel anything but exhausted.

    I needed to check the weather this morning, so I went to youtube and got the forecast from Flavia… true it’s from a different continent and not quite current, but …

    ¡Mi teimpo es maximo!

  32. JackOH says:

    The explicit public statement of one’s “tiredness” or “exhaustion”, or having one’s “tiredness” or “exhaustion” talked about as in a history or biography, is often a sign of having the upper hand, some unarticulated virtue, in one’s conversation with the broader public(s).

    Try these two lines:

    Hercules was exhausted by his labors.

    America’s Blacks are exhausted by their undeserved ill treatment by police.

    Now try this line:

    America’s Whites are exhausted by their undeserved ill treatment by Blacks and political elites.

    Sounds a bit awkward, doesn’t it? Whites in the public sphere have been “de-virtued”, and, in my opinion, not a little dehumanized, and by “de-humanized” I mean in a vague pre-genocidal sense. Their “exhaustion” is not permitted to be recognized. They–Whites– are simply obtuse, or lazy, or indifferent.

    Steve, we’re in very serious trouble.

  33. Jiminy says:

    The latinos need to get involved in the production of shows like those negro tv series that are on late at night, I think just as a program filler. Every actor seems to be black. I’ve never sat through one of them, but I suppose the shows must cater to some sort of demographic, whatever that may be. As with the latinos, nobody would watch them but at least they would be employed.

    Cinema will survive but movie theaters will not. Much of the restaurant industry is also not coming back, nor is B&M retail. People have grown accustomed to eating, shopping and being entertained at home. Some % are never going back to the old ways or are going to do so much less often. Having stuff delivered to your house is so much easier and more convenient, not to mention cheaper in many cases. Some people will come back but not enough to keep the doors of many of these businesses open – if your sales are down by x%, at some value of x there’s no way to be profitable.

    Certain stores and other businesses will be converted to “dark” stores or “ghost” restaurants – instead of allowing the public in, the only people inside will be shoppers for online delivery services or takeout delivery people. In many grocery stores, half or more of the people inside now are such shoppers already and they make the experience for everyone else unpleasant. Better to segregate the instacart shoppers in a separate location. If you were building from scratch for them you could skip all the decor and build cheaper but for existing stores you can just stop updating them, get rid of the endcap displays, etc. (replace them with piles of the most commonly shopped items). But for movie theaters there’s no conversion that is possible.

    The idea that Latinos, of all identity groups, would want to emphasize their low energy, is really very funny to me. You’d think they’d want to leave that tired old Slowpoke Rodriguez stereotype behind.

    The whole impetus behind importing millions of Mexicans and Central Americans, at least on the moderate/cuck right, was that they worked so hard and did the jobs Americans wouldn’t do. If they’re not even going to do that anymore, then what the hell good are they?

    At least when it comes to People of Blackness, no one is really very surprised to hear that they find the constant discipline required to interact with white people to be exhausting and that they’d really rather be napping. Mexicans are supposed to be the ones who take it in stride, it’s literally their only positive stereotype.

    “This programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the warning says.

    “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now.”

    The message adds that rather than remove the content, “we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together”.

    And you thought that Jared Kushner was bad?

    It’s common for Presidential families (all families) to have black sheep.

    U.S. Grant’s sin against history occurred when a couple of (((gentlemen))) convinced his unrespectable father (the term “never-do-well” springs to mind, but Jesse Grant never seems to have been such a screw-up at the game of life as to ever warrant that harsher epithet) to speculate in the cotton trade while bullets from Blue and Gray soldiers were still flying. This lead to Grant files’s infamous ban on Jews from his military district. Part of U.S. Grant’s rage was surely the fact that every Southern cotton bale traded in contravention of the Union embargo represented so many additional bullets for Johnny Rebs to shoot Grants’s soldiers with. Then again Grants’s rage may have had more to do with the fact that the only thing more embarrassing than when Billy Carter is your brother or Hunter Biden your son is when he turns out to be your dad.

    Cinema will survive but movie theaters will not. Much of the restaurant industry is also not coming back, nor is B&M retail. People have grown accustomed to eating, shopping and being entertained at home.

    Jack, i think your thrust is correct, but i’m not so sure about restaurants.

    Personally i don’t care. I’m happy with my own or better yet AnotherMom’s cooking, and i’m much more comfortable lounging out on the back deck to eat/drink. (Often, firing up a fire–coded deep in the racial DNA of my people.) I’d much rather be home–or at a family/friends’/neighbors’ home than “go out”. (Our PNW neighbors had everyone over a day or so before we head down south–terrific evening sitting around chatting and eating.)

    But i seem to be an outlier. Lots of people seem to really like “going out to eat”. Presumably the variety of cuisine. But they even seem to just like getting stuff handed to them when they could make it themselves for a fraction–i.e. Starbucks.

    Having restaurants back open seemed to be prime agenda item for a lot of people, even though to me, if you wanted to treat this Xi virus as serious than that was an obvious–and completely unnecessary–superspreading vector, right away clubbing. (Our neighbors here like going on and caught the bug–which they dispatched after a week–going out after the restaurants reopened.)

    Provided there’s an actual vaccine and the Xi virus passes–more or less–into history, i think restaurants will mostly be back. Though i do believe there will be a trend to more takeout.

    a) a mediocrity (ok, maybe he’s great at managing his family’s apartments–who cares)
    and

    One thing that I have learned from watching Black, Latino produced movies and Bollywood movies is that, they are all skin deep — very superficial, simple plots, with trite and insipid content. These are not people who gave the world Aristotle, Beethoven or the Industrial Revolution. Deep thought and creativity elude them.

    In fact, basically all Hollywood content, including those on Netflix and Amazon Prime, is going in the same direction, all about sex rather than love, violence over meaningful dialogue, with trite and insipid content. Creativity is long dead in Hollywood. It is now run by a bunch of brain dead, morally bankrupt, maniacal leftist loonies soaking in drugs, alcohol and their own urine.

    So I welcome all this push to make it more multi-culti, more LGBTQ, because even if Americans watch the shallow, pointless, banal contents produced by these illustrious POCs, the rest of the world is simply not interested. Nothing would be more welcomed than the demise of Hollywood, the main catalyst of the coarsening of our pop culture and death of morality in the West in the past five decades.

    As I said before, you don’t need 100% of customers not coming back to kill your restaurant. Losing x% will do it. The nature of the restaurant business is that you have relatively high fixed costs (rent, utilities, even labor in the short run) and relatively low marginal costs (there are less than $5 worth of ingredients in that $20 plate of pasta). This is what makes a busy restaurant so profitable – once you pass the break even mark, every additional diner is bringing up to 75% of his check to the bottom line. But the flip side of this is that once you fall below break even, the losses compound just as quickly. Your restaurant is slow – soon there is not enough $ to cover the rent and the payroll and pay your purveyors and then you go dark.

    I don’t think there is any doubt that some % of people have changed their habits at least in the short term (e.g. within the next year or so). You have already admitted that you are one of them and there are many like you. I don’t know what the killer % of decline in volume is for any given restaurant that brings them below break even but it’s not a high number and there are very few restaurants that can afford to operate in the red for a year or two.

    Gloria Calderón Kellet – Again could pass for 100% European and indio ancestry unlikely to be above 10%. She grew up in Beaverton Oregon, married a guy with an English surname. Possibly Cuban given her TV show set in LA is about a Cuban family.

    A remarkable percentage of successful hispanics in California are white Cubans. The Mexicans make up a third of the state, Cubans under 1%, but they soak up all the affirmative action slots the huge Mexican population creates for “hispanics.”

    By simply existing as ourselves, Jews undermine the vision of a world without difference. And so the things about us that make us different must be demonized, so that they can be erased or destroyed: Zionism is refashioned as colonialism; government officials justify the murder of innocent Jews in Jersey City; Jewish businesses can be looted because Jews “are the face of capital.” Jews are flattened into “white people,” our living history obliterated, so that someone with a straight face can suggest that the Holocaust was merely “white on white crime.”

    My sides! That article was practically interminable, the only thing that kept me going were the nuggets of schadenfreude. It is obvious that as an ardent provincial ethnicist she still has contempt and hatred for non-Jewish white people, but at the same time she appears to be belatedly close to realizing that the host she has reveled in the destruction of was actually good for the Jews, if sometimes a little hard work.

But he wrote the book, music and lyrics to In the Heights (probably for Hamilton too), and so he’s not ‘tired’ himself. Probably more ‘tribal solidarity’. The only other good B’way shows I saw were revivals, although the scores to some of them in the 90s were good, as for City of Angels and The Life (both Jewish.)

    ‘Bridgerton’: Netflix Announces Release Date, Shares First Looks At New Shonda Rhimes Series

    A romantic, scandalous and quick-witted series set in in the peak age of Regency London high society, Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of a powerful family, as she puts herself out onto Regency London’s highly competitive marriage market. Daphne hopes to follow her parents’ footsteps and find true love, but as the number of potential suitors begins to dwindle, the young heiress is without options. However, despite her lack of success in the marriage market, Daphne meets the desirable but rebellious bachelor Duke of Hasting (Regé-Jean Page).

    Based on Julia Quinn’s bestselling series of novels, Bridgerton seeks to celebrate the long-lasting effects of friendship, family and love. Additional actors set to appear in the new Netflix series are Jonathan Bailey, Nicola Coughlan, Claudia Jessie, Ruby Barker, Adjoa Andoh and more. Golda Rosheuvel, Luke Thompson, Luke Newton, Ruby Stokes, Will Tilston, Florence Hunt, Ruth Gemmell, Bessie Carter, Harriet Cains, Polly Walker, Ben Miller, Sabrina Bartlett, Martins Imhangbe, Lorraine Ashbourne and Julie Andrews — as the voice of Lady Whistledown — round out the cast.

    That’s because if you start with massive amounts of money and huge name recognition, you can employ people who really can run a “fashion business” bankrolled by you or your family, with your famous family name on it.

    This is how the Kardashians do it. You probably know that one of the youngest ones had huge number of instagram followers. So she parlayed this into almost a billion dollars by starting a line of lipsticks.
    It all depends on having vast name recognition and having the type of fans and followers who want to imitate your fashion and beauty choices.
    The female brain has 20 times more brain cells hard at work at “fashion” compared to making good political and cultural choices.

    His and Lucille’s great granddaughter just died last week of breast cancer… at 31. Never heard of such a young woman even getting that

    Survival rates for people diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer are lowest for women over 80 and under 40. The low rates for the over-80 demo are self-explanatory. For women under 40 I would assume it’s because there must be something really messed up with their DNA for them to even get it at that age.

    Your comment gave me a headache. Please send your apology to my hunting lodge in the Warner Mountains. If you include a SASE with your apology I will send you a lock of hair.

    [Exile on Main Street] Probably the greatest rock album of all time…

    Overrated — and muddy, due to the on-site recording from a truck. Stick with Let it Bleed.

    Then go to Sticky Fingers, and focus on the best track, “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.”

    Trump needs to be able to communicate this effectively and be relentless about it.

    If Trump gets the rhetoric wrong, he generates massive sympathy from all the parents out there who had kids that went off the rails, possibly motivating them to go vote for China Joe.

    Exactly. He has to be deft about it. Cruelty won’t work.

    He is, though, perfectly placed to do so. His brother died of drink. He’s dry himself. He can commiserate with Joe while refusing to tolerate letting a relative’s misbehavior affect one’s job. Fred Jr wasn’t allowed to bring down the Trump empire, which doesn’t belong to all of us, as Joe’s does.

    “I think Hollywood has gotten pretty worthless.”

    Hard to argue with considering the available evidence. But I’m cautiously optimistic. The bio-weapon has altered the business; theatrical release is still in the experimental phase. But streaming has accelerated, creating new opportunities. The pipeline is cluttered with SJW excrement. The market for black worship and Luciferian fluidity is unsurprisingly small to the shock of no one. Genuine creators, while interested in themes large and small, have zero interest in political propaganda.

    You got it backwards. Billy Carter wasn’t the loser brother.

    BTW, redneck stuff like that and his taking a piss fresh off the plane by the side of the taxiway are kind of endearing things, not anything that’d make the guy look bad to me.

    I kid on that first line (just for laughs), but I do respect Jimmy Carter for being one of the humblest Presidents, since, who, Harry Truman? Right now, one could land at Americus, Georgia – Jimmy Carter Regional Airport, and with so little general aviation traffic these days, just take a leak by the taxiway with nobody seeing or giving a damn if he were. Try that at Ronald Reagan National. They’ll tackle you and put you away for “terroristic threats”.

    This is beyond cornpop level crazy

    Unless I misunderstood it, I thought Tucker tonight said part of the story was revealed that “cornpop” was one of the two uh, friendly gentlemen in question.

    So he was gay?

    Didn’t Joe give old cornpop a beat-down earlier? He was beating up a gay cornpop?

    I think dragons and fairies are next, if not already there.

    It’s like the Mary Poppins sequel that featured more blacks (like 5 or 6) than probably lived in all of London at the time.

    I wish I were still a Netflix subscriber so I could cancel it again.

    No, no Muggles, Joe didn’t commit a beat-down on Corn Pop. He menaced him with a chain, and he and Corn Pop were close friends after that.

    I used to like going to restaurants, but in New America I would be taking a risk that my meal would be ruined by BLM screamers, so I think I will keep eating bc at home.

    They lie awake, terrified of dogs and of white women touching their hair. Then they wake up in the middle of nightmares about White supremacists marching with tiki torches and trying to touch their hair.

    Tell the whole truth, you racist you.

  158. @Neuday

    But they’ve been getting their way forever! The blacks, for 60 years, and the Hispanics, for 50. And they’ve been violent for all that time. And since Hispanic grifters only know to imitate blacks (“exhausted,” “tired,” same difference), there’s no need to cater to them. Just let the same, talentless blacks write scripts for Hispanic B-pictures that have been writing the black B-pictures.

    Who are these brilliant, black screenwriters? I must have missed them.

    I worked for more than 50 years-entry level, blue collar, technical, white collar, the military. Of all the blacks that I knew enough to form an opinion of, I met a handful-maybe 5-who were as good as a decent white employee. I never saw one “twice as good”, or anywhere near.

    Are there a lot of good Black script writers ? Do they also write all the TV commercials ?

    The lack of Hispanic script writers is not the reason we do not see a lot of Mexicans in commercials, films and television programs. Even when a program has an Hispanic character, they will never be Mexican or look like a typical Latin American Mestizo. Usually the Hispanic character will be Cuban or South American. Yet of the 60 million Hispanic in America , 40 million are Mexican.

    In reality, Mexicans would prefer not to watch mestizo characters. If you watch Mexican or South American television , they also have very few mestizo characters. One reality of Latin culture -they look down upon mestizos, see them as lower class and not attractive.

    Leguizamo tends to irritate me whenever he’s onscreen, but I have to give him props for his performance as Jon Favreau’s staunch sous in Chef.

  163. @Father O'Hara

    Upper class and educated Hispanics generally look down on Mestizos and would be offended if Hollywood was hiring mestizo looking actors. It is quite embarrassing to them. Yet most of the Hispanics in America are in fact mestizos , genetically about 50% Amerindian. But the few Hispanic actors that get hired will have more European features , usually they have a white parent, like Raquel Welsh, Linda Carter and Salma Hayek.

  164. @syonredux

    The BBC must have a lot of excellent Black writers and producers. Not many good Hispanic writers in Europe

    Of course, the very term “Latinx” is colonialist and cultural appropriation or whatever: Spanish, like many languages, is gendered. English happens to be one of the few that isn’t. To impose English standards on Spanish…well.

    Interesting fact: Indiana Jones was supposed to pull the guy’s sword away with his whip. Harrison Ford was sick and not in the mood. “Steven, I’d just pull out my gun and shoot the SOB.” And so he did, and the scene is perfect.

    In the second movie, he tries again, finds his gun is empty, and *then* does the whip stunt.

  166. @Travis

    Wait, they came all the way to Estados Unidos so they could speak Spanish, live and work next to mestizos, and watch mestizos on TV? Couldn’t they have saved a lot of trouble by just… staying home?
