The 50 most Racist movies

Number One "Breakfast at Tiffany's" click here to find out why and to check out the other 49 most racist movies ever (and guess what, Birth of a Nation ain't one of them!- I guess whoever compiled the list doesn't do black and white)

I know it is not just me, this obsession with that piddling, vindictive little word has gone beyond tedious. When you read garbage like this you realise quite how meaningless and downright silly the whole thing is.

It is time someone set up a Facebook group called "Call me racist I don't f*****g care" I am sure it would get plenty of members, except that Facebook would shut it down for being racist.

Thanks, Sarah,

I'm surprised they left out Zulu about the gallant defence of Rorke's Drift on January 22-23 1879 by about 100 Brits against 4500 Zulus, i.e. odds of 45:1.

13 of the surviving white Brits were awarded the VC.

No blacks fought on the British side.

The defenders did not sing Men of Harlech at Rorke's Drift, btw, but it was a good twist to the movie, nonetheless.

The film was of course balanced by Zulu Dawn, where 20,000 Zulus wiped out about 1,000 Brits at Isandhlwana at almost the same time that the Rorke's Drift battle was raging.

I guess the enrichers would want to celebrate that, like the Muslim brats did when the WTC towers collapsed on September 11th, 2001.

In David Clammer's book, The Zulu War, he describes how, on sighting the approaching impis, sentries on the heights above the drift came charging down the slope to the mission station, shouting:

"The Zulus are coming! Black as hell* and as thick as grass!"

*An accurate statement, see Job 10:22.

That has a resonance with this contry's immigration crisis.

P.S. Re: the remarks on The Passion of Christ, the Lord isn't black, He's white, also ruddy, because He's a Shemite, my emphasis:

"My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand" Song of Solomon 5:10 KJB*

*Though also in the NKJV, they made a lucky guess.

Maybe the (in)E(in)HR(wrongs)C will try to ban the Olde Booke. It'll chew them up and spit them out if they do.

Correction: 11 Victoria Crosses were awarded at Rorke's Drift, not 13. Rorke's Drift remains the occasion for the highest number of VC awards for a single action.

The recipients were as follows:

Lt. John Rouse Merriott Chard

Lt. Gonville Bromhead

Cpl. William Wilson Allen

Cpl. Christian Ferdnand Schiess

Pte. Frederick Hitch

Pte. Henry (Harry) Hook

Pte. Robert Jones

Pte. William Jones

John Williams Fielding

James Henry Reynolds

James Langley Dalton

Lt. Chard was an officer in the Royal Engineers. Lt. Bromhead and the enlisted recipients were all from the 2nd Battalion, the 24th Foot, later the South Wales Borderers.

Of the ostensibly civilian names, John Reynolds was the surgeon at the post, the others were members of the Army Commissariat.

Just a bit of 'white' history.

"The Zulus are coming! Black as hell* and as thick as grass!"

This line was in the original cut but like Nigger the dog no longer features.

Its goes without saying of course that Nigger the dog never did feature in Zulu!

I started at 1. and went from there. I gave up a 33. because half the films I had not heared of before, so the thing was pointless.

My main impression is that the list is very silly and is of no value at all.

Of course I may be biased. After all I admire the superb efficiency of "Triumph of the Will", and that, I am told, is beyond the pale.

They were quick to make a movie about the battle at Rorke's Drift, but the Battle of Blood River on 16 December 1838, when about 450 Boers fought against 16000 Zulu savages. The Boers won the battle not with guns but with faith in God, and we celebrate that day as the Day of the Vow unto this day every year.

Thanks, Eduard

Arthur Kemp in his book The Lie of Apartheid has a very vivid account of the battle of Blood River.

The treachery and savagery of the Zulus (i.e. the blacks) is most notable in this account.

That is another reason why the event won't be heard of in the British media.

Is The Dam Busters in the list? Apparently there's a remake in the offing, and they're going to call Guy Gibson's dog "Nigsy" because they've "discovered that's what Guy called him."

Yeah, right. I can just imagine a real man calling his dog a soppy name like Nigsy. Nig, yes - but not Nigsy.

It's a pretty silly list, with pretty silly explanations of the alleged racism in the films. I quit when I got to National Lampoon's Vacation, one of the few I have seen. The scene portraying "inner city" blacks as naughty pranksters is the one and only justification for the rating. As everyone with the least scintilla of common sense knows, if you get off the freeway in the wrong neighborhood in any large American city, then you might never be seen alive again. Why do you suppose so many of us pack guns?
