Black Lives don't Matter in America largely because Blacks are STILL not seen as equal to Whites in America. This is due in part to the fact that the Mainstream American Media is where many racial stereotypes in America are created, nurtured, incubated and disseminated. Why? Because Americans will pay millions of dollars a year to laugh at well-paid White actors humiliate Blacks, and well-paid Black actors humiliate themselves.
The new movie, Ghostbusters is a stunning 2016 example of blatant racism familiarly disguised as good-natured humor and marketed as family entertainment.
African America, actor and Saturday Night Live comedian, Leslie Jones plays a poorly educated racially stereotypical transit worker with an attitude in the new 2016 Ghostbusters move. In response to cries of racism by some outside the mainstream, Jones is quoted as saying, "‘if I’m the stereotype, so be it’. Blacks in America must stop supporting actors like Leslie Jones and laughing WITH those who are laughing AT us, not with us! Comedic racism has always been big business in America but make no mistake, thanks to movies like Ghostbusters and countless others, mainstream America (which includes POLICE OFFICERS) views Blacks, consciously or otherwise, as a sub-class. Ghostbusters, like Racism, is NOT funny. --Isaias Gamboa
