Aw geez. Now what? Albinos are complaining about The Da Vinci Code. The antagonist of the book is an albino monk named Silas. And albinos are upset that a villanus stereotype is being furthered not only in the book, but also in the movie.
Remember back when Disney released Alladin in 1992? Arabs complained about the villain in that movie too. They said he was too dark-skinned and it perpetuated a stereotype.
What’s the solution? Well, I’ve got it. Ask yourself this question: what social group of people in the world doesn’t seem to care about how they’re portrayed in movies and TV shows? Yep, you guessed it. Middle aged white guys.
So, let’s just make all villains in all movies and TV shows middle aged white guys. It worked in Hawaii Five O, Starsky and Hutch, Pacific Heights, etc. And while we’re at it, if we need an idiot for the show, let’s make him middle aged and white too, just like in All In The Family, Cheers, Newhart, Dumb and Dumber, etc.
It’s just like affirmative action. Just screw the middle age white guy, then everyone is happy.
(Or if you must, just offend the cavemen; they won’t complain.)
