It was never about merit. It was never about quality. It was about sending the anti-white message.

Vox Day calls it the “Devil Mouse.”

It wasn’t always that way, but did you expect Walt Disney to truly live forever? His interviews of Werner Von Braun in the 1950s compelled our nation to invest in space exploration. Now? Our future is just goofy. [Disney entertainment chief says ABC passes on ‘incredibly well-written scripts’ because they don’t meet new diversity standards, Daily Mail, April 14, 2021]:

Dana Walden, the chairman of entertainment for Walt Disney Television, recently said during a panel discussion that ABC passed on ‘some incredibly well-written scripts’ because they did not meet its new diversity standards.

Walden made the comments during panel discussion titled ‘Women in Focus: Women, Big Tech and the Future of Hollywood’ put on by Chapman University and Glamour on April 9, the Hollywood Reporter revealed.

Last year, the outlet reported that ABC was calling for at least 50% representation of ‘underrepresented groups’ in regular and recurring characters – as well as with writing staff and producers.

‘I will tell you for the first time we received some incredibly well-written scripts that did not satisfy our standards in terms of inclusion, and we passed on them,’ Walden said during the panel discussion.

The guidelines announced by ABC also include ‘meaningful integration of Underrepresented Groups in overall themes and narratives’ and ‘ongoing meaningful integration of Underrepresented Groups in episodic themes and narratives.’

Shows in ABC’s lineup currently appear to already specifically address diversity with titles like its long-running Blackish series and its spin-off Mixedish – though other existing shows The Connors and The Goldbergs have largely white cast.

In January, ABC announced its new show Home Economics which premiered last week. The show stars Topher Grace, who is white, with a largely white cast.

Walden also revealed during the panel discussion that Disney will soon announce a new ‘BIPOC’ programming initiative at Hulu, referring to the term for black, indigenous and people of color.

Walt Disney couldn’t live forever.

No man can.

Those who reach for the stars in their lifetimes, will find their legacy sullied by those who view equality and equity a far greater goal worth pursuing unless they explicitly state their ambitions before their death.

Never apologize for your hopes or dreams, or desires for bettering mankind’s future.

Ten years after the end of World War II, Walt Disney promoted Von Braun’s dream for the future of humanity; now, those individuals controlling Disney’s legacy promote the anti-white worldview for programming on Disney-owned television/entertainment.

There is no such thing as white privilege in America. Only the elites privilege of erasing whiteness.

It’s not about merit of a script or about telling a compelling story, or even about making money… it’s about promoting an anti-white agenda.

  1. These “diverse” movies these days have become ridiculous. Especially Disney, HBO, and Leftflix.

    It’s bad enough many of them are based on comic books and video games.

    But they just have to have negroes in starring roles no matter how ridiculous the context.

    I have recently seen several movies where they couldn’t fit enough negroes in. So they made the Viking and Greek gods be negroes.

    So stop watching and stop paying for TV. People who watch TV or listen to radio are subjecting themselves to the pysch op warfare of the ruling elite. The elite or the oligarchs of Davos want a fractured diverse population which will allow the elite unfettered control of real estate and capital without any organized or unified political opposition by playing each minority against one another blacks vs whites, women vs men, atheists vs Christians, etc and so forth.
    Returning to the TV which people need to toss out the window, everybody knows which ethnic group created the Hollywood and TV industry and now the same group created and funds BLM, Antifa, and the LGBTQ movement plus they created the Civil Rights movement America's secular elite approved religion.

    Whenever I see historical movies (or even shows based on European mythologies) where negroes appear as characters, I always burst out in disgusted laughter and turn said movies off. It always reminds me of the scene from the movie "Idiocracy" where the main characters go on the ridiculous Time Machine ride and lo and behold- there's a display with a T-Rex wearing a Nazi armband. Yeah, it's that level of stupid and looks it too.

    It wouldn't surprise me if, in the future, we see a movie about King Arthur and half the Knights gathered around the table are Africans. Maybe a historical drama about the French Revolution can have Marie Antoinette portrayed by a three foot tall South African pygmy? That would be so "woke" and "inclusive!"

    Of course, the LGBTQ crowd needs to be represented so I suggest a remake of the WW2 movie "The Longest Day." I demand the beaches at Normandy be stormed by transvestites in high heels and their commanders be butch lesbians. The Commander of the British forces can have a pink poodle instead of a bulldog and be wearing a tutu.

    Oh crap! I think I just caused a lot of ears to perk up in Hollywood. Damn me!

  2. Just tonight I sat down and rewatched both the Sword in the Stone and Charlotte’s Web. While I personally think that Sword in the Stone held up better than Charlotte’s Web I can’t deny the warmth and simplicity that graced both of these stories. Neither movie could happen in our current age unless it was jam packed with minorities, product placement, and attempts to pander to every demographic. I’m not surprised in the least to hear confirmation of this, I rarely even bother with a movie made after 2010 these days, they’re more concerned with Leftist propaganda than morality, diversity is more of a concern than culture, and postmodern nihilism takes president over a sincere story. It’s all so tiring.

    The one upside to the degradation of entertainment culture is that it inspires me to enjoy greater, and more culturally enriching works of art. I might not have even touched Divine Comedy if Hollywood had kept releasing entertaining movies made by people who didn’t explicitly hate me. But that’s not the world I live in now, and my one of my rules is that I don’t voluntarily give money to people that hate me, so I don’t catch many new shows or movies. I’m building a lovely library that will still be enjoyable, shareable, and memorable well after the last Disney executive is publicly cancelled for sexism/racism/homophobia/transphobia/anti-semitism /culrophobia. Goodbye Disney, hello Brother’s Grimm.

    Your story is my story, except my cut-off date is ten years earlier. My private library has more movies than I will ever watch, which is a shame, because there's some good stuff in there, and I know my heirs will just discard it all. But that's another gripe. The stuff young people watch, the crap they listen to instead of music - they deserve it all for accepting it in the first place.

  3. Again, like I reasoned on the targeting of whites by democrats, the same solution is at hand if whites cared about their friends and families, to wit, do not give two cents of support to Disney corporation. Don’t buy anything connected with it, whether using their parks or buying their products. The power people have in totally screwing these anti-white companies is enormous when one uses the “money angle, for making money is the sole reason these companies exist and have power. The new mantra should be, DEFUND THE ANTI WHITE WOKE.

  4. Last year, the outlet reported that ABC was calling for at least 50% representation of ‘underrepresented groups’ in regular and recurring characters – as well as with writing staff and producers.

    But, if you start to over-represent these so-called “under-represented groups” aren’t you, by default, turning a so-called “over-represented group” into an under-represented group?

    So you still end up perpetuating racism, sexism, or some other -ism, while getting the ultimate prize of an interior product. In this case, shoddier scripts.

  5. Only the mentally challenged still watch the trash that comes out of Hollywood.

  6. A bit off topic, but there was a brawl of Chuck E Cheese proportions at a carnival in Miami-Dade County, Florida.

    This is why I give 0% of my time in viewing ANYTHING the MSM airs. For me, it’s been that way for the last 20 years. I simply cannot stomach all of the third world faces on the screen. No… I do not HATE anyone. I simply see this overrepresentation and then instantly see the jew face behind the scenes purposefully doing this. Deny the tree its water and it will shrivel and die.

    Agreed, but in my case it's got nothing to do with over-representation. It's just a matter of aesthetics. OK, maybe a dollop of HATE, too, if I'm honest.

    Back in the day, people made movies featuring the most attractive actors they could find. Everybody knew that they were not representative of the real world, but they were easy on the eye. We all crave a little fantasy - beautiful people, strong, brave people, true love, happily ever after, it's ingrained in our culture. But for at least the last twenty years, there's been a trend of featuring ugly people (and who's uglier than the negro?) doing ugly things in ugly settings. It's degrading, and I believe intentionally so.

  8. That’s ok, I’ve passed in Disney shows a long while ago…

There is always one black family in that town—only one! Sometimes she has an old male friend that is (now)gay– bonus points if he was the star quarterback in high school.

    Get her "The Country Girls" trilogy by Edna O'Brien. Written about working class Irish women in the early 60's. No blacks and I believe poor choices do have implications.

  13. Hollywood makes crap. It makes little difference to me what’s the story, who’s the star, producer, writer, etc.

    Rotten Tomatoes ratings mean that the Hollywood idiots, and their media lackeys, can no longer fool anyone.

  14. This is off topic, but thought you all would get a kick out of a couple personal observations of the Negro reverting to its natural behavior.

    First, on Sunday I saw a couple of bikers stopped along the road, at the entrance to an upscale community. Probably $700-800,000+ homes. And, mostly White neighborhood. They were actually stopping, in plain sight, to take a piss on the corner! Now, there were a few trees around, and were facing away from the road, but I could easily see what they were doing. Worse, they were facing INTO the yard of the first house on the corner! I’m sure the owners loved paying a premium, to get the hell out of infested areas, just to happen to look out their window and see THAT going on!

    Second, just today I was visiting one of my older relatives who’s still toughing it out in Prince George’s County, MD. He has some fairly new neighbors, fresh-off-the-boat style Africans. I’ve talked with them once or twice, on a casual basis. They actually seem friendly enough, but don’t worry I know to keep them at arm’s length. Well, today the neighbors had a U-haul truck backed in their driveway. I didn’t think anything of it, but it sounded like they were shoveling driveway gravel! Sure enough, took a look on the sly, and noticed them shoveling driveway gravel out of the back of the truck! Now, to their credit, it was a bigger truck, one of those larger, medium-duty type rigs, rather than the lighter type that has a van type cab. Still, that seems like an awfully odd choice of vehicle, to move driveway gravel. I’m sure it wasn’t exactly good for the interior, either.

    But, nigs gotta nig, I guess.

    Not quite King Arthur, but in 2018 the film Mary Queen of Scots was released and a number of the actors portraying historical English characters were Africans. You can pick them out of the cast list here:

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2328900/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast

    From Wikipedia:

    The director, Josie Rourke, followed British theatre's principle of colour-blind casting, which is defined as Nontraditional casting, integrated casting, blind casting or rarely colored washing (short for color-blind/gender-blind casting) is the practice of casting without considering the actor's ethnicity, skin color, body shape, sex and/or gender. A representative of the Actors' Equity Association has disputed the use of the term "color blind", preferring the definition "nontraditional casting". Nontraditional casting "is defined as the casting of ethnic minority actors in roles where race, ethnicity, or gender is not germane". Race-reversed casting is one form of non-traditional casting.

    I think a better description of it is "reality be damned."

    Also from Wikipedia:

    The movie portrays the English ambassador to the Scottish Court, Lord Thomas Randolph, as a black man, which he was not. Gemma Chan's character is Elizabeth Hardwick, who in real life was white. Director Josie Rourke told the L.A. Times: "I was really clear, I would not direct an all-white period drama."

    When was the last time we heard a director say, "I would not direct an all-black" anything because it didn't include whites?

    This craze for having at least some non-Whites in White movies is quite old now. I was going through some movies in New Zealand and in most movies for the last few decades, they had some Maori in it. There is nothing wrong in having movies with both Whites New-Zealanders and Maoris but only White movies seem very rare. This is true for nearly all White movie industries, some token non White who is shown in positive light. Even many Russian movies have to have a Tartar character.
    But non White movie industries have no such problems. Bollywood for example hardly has non Indian characters and nobody minds.
    Kind of slyly pushing the idea (by the Talmudists) that 100% White societies are unnatural when in reality, that has been the norm throughout history.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if, in the future, we see a movie about King Arthur and half the Knights gathered around the table are Africans.
     
    Not quite King Arthur, but in 2018 the film Mary Queen of Scots was released and a number of the actors portraying historical English characters were Africans. You can pick them out of the cast list here:

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2328900/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast

    From Wikipedia:

    The director, Josie Rourke, followed British theatre's principle of colour-blind casting, which is defined as Nontraditional casting, integrated casting, blind casting or rarely colored washing (short for color-blind/gender-blind casting) is the practice of casting without considering the actor's ethnicity, skin color, body shape, sex and/or gender. A representative of the Actors' Equity Association has disputed the use of the term "color blind", preferring the definition "nontraditional casting". Nontraditional casting "is defined as the casting of ethnic minority actors in roles where race, ethnicity, or gender is not germane". Race-reversed casting is one form of non-traditional casting.

    I think a better description of it is "reality be damned."

    Also from Wikipedia:

    The movie portrays the English ambassador to the Scottish Court, Lord Thomas Randolph, as a black man, which he was not. Gemma Chan's character is Elizabeth Hardwick, who in real life was white. Director Josie Rourke told the L.A. Times: "I was really clear, I would not direct an all-white period drama."

    When was the last time we heard a director say, "I would not direct an all-black" anything because it didn't include whites?

    Whenever I see historical movies (or even shows based on European mythologies) where negroes appear as characters, I always burst out in disgusted laughter and turn said movies off. It always reminds me of the scene from the movie "Idiocracy" where the main characters go on the ridiculous Time Machine ride and lo and behold- there's a display with a T-Rex wearing a Nazi armband. Yeah, it's that level of stupid and looks it too.

    It wouldn't surprise me if, in the future, we see a movie about King Arthur and half the Knights gathered around the table are Africans. Maybe a historical drama about the French Revolution can have Marie Antoinette portrayed by a three foot tall South African pygmy? That would be so "woke" and "inclusive!"

    Of course, the LGBTQ crowd needs to be represented so I suggest a remake of the WW2 movie "The Longest Day." I demand the beaches at Normandy be stormed by transvestites in high heels and their commanders be butch lesbians. The Commander of the British forces can have a pink poodle instead of a bulldog and be wearing a tutu.

    Oh crap! I think I just caused a lot of ears to perk up in Hollywood. Damn me!

    My wife watches a lot of Hallmark-so I am exposed to them on a regular basis---plotlines are generally -small town girl move to big city and has big $ job but no love life---something happens at home so she returns to beautiful small town to take over the family hardware store -or inn or run the autumn festival etc--where she meets the towns most eligible bachelor often with am adorable kid---one of her old friends from high school is always a smart black girl who now runs the restaurant or flower shop or bakery makes her realize that her life with be better in small town with that cute guy. There is always one black family in that town---only one! Sometimes she has an old male friend that is (now)gay-- bonus points if he was the star quarterback in high school.

    The film Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) was one step ahead of this film. The first scene was a battle in 484 A.D. in which one of the Knights of the Round Table, Gawain, was played by the very black actor Marcus Fraser. See:

    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6183416/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t12

    I saw that and thought WTF?!

    It's always orcs cast in such roles. Almost never East Asians, Hispanics, Mideasterners, South Asians, etc., just orcs. Perhaps they will convince enough people that orcs have always been in white countries, and over time I expect that we'll see even more of this, until all of the actors, portraying people who were actually white, will be black.

    Oh yeah, we already have that in Hamilton.

    The director, Josie Rourke, followed British theatre's principle of colour-blind casting, which is defined as Nontraditional casting, integrated casting, blind casting or rarely colored washing (short for color-blind/gender-blind casting) is the practice of casting without considering the actor's ethnicity, skin color, body shape, sex and/or gender. A representative of the Actors' Equity Association has disputed the use of the term "color blind", preferring the definition "nontraditional casting". Nontraditional casting "is defined as the casting of ethnic minority actors in roles where race, ethnicity, or gender is not germane". Race-reversed casting is one form of non-traditional casting.

    I think a better description of it is "reality be damned."

    Also from Wikipedia:

    The movie portrays the English ambassador to the Scottish Court, Lord Thomas Randolph, as a black man, which he was not. Gemma Chan's character is Elizabeth Hardwick, who in real life was white. Director Josie Rourke told the L.A. Times: "I was really clear, I would not direct an all-white period drama."

    When was the last time we heard a director say, "I would not direct an all-black" anything because it didn't include whites?

    This craze for having at least some non-Whites in White movies is quite old now. I was going through some movies in New Zealand and in most movies for the last few decades, they had some Maori in it. There is nothing wrong in having movies with both Whites New-Zealanders and Maoris but only White movies seem very rare. This is true for nearly all White movie industries, some token non White who is shown in positive light. Even many Russian movies have to have a Tartar character.
    But non White movie industries have no such problems. Bollywood for example hardly has non Indian characters and nobody minds.
    Kind of slyly pushing the idea (by the Talmudists) that 100% White societies are unnatural when in reality, that has been the norm throughout history.

    Russia doesn't have Crest toothpaste, otherwise they'd have tartar control! Ha, ha, ha!

    Piglet——-Imagine the MLK STORY with a White actor

    No Asian Americans are underrepresented in Hollywood so the role of MLK should be given to a 100% Chinese American and vice versa a Hollywood movie on Mao should be played by and African American both movies will be blockbusters.

    The film Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) was one step ahead of this film. The first scene was a battle in 484 A.D. in which one of the Knights of the Round Table, Gawain, was played by the very black actor Marcus Fraser. See:

    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6183416/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t12

    I saw that and thought WTF?!

    It’s always orcs cast in such roles. Almost never East Asians, Hispanics, Mideasterners, South Asians, etc., just orcs. Perhaps they will convince enough people that orcs have always been in white countries, and over time I expect that we’ll see even more of this, until all of the actors, portraying people who were actually white, will be black.

    Oh yeah, we already have that in Hamilton.

    “Knights Gallant” doesn’t seem to correlate with TNB. Does he kick women in the head while they are down? Does he cannibalize his vanquished foes? Does he abuse his horse?
