LOS ANGELES, CA (USA)
“It was like being at a live performance,” said Margaret Adams, a local Caucasian woman, “we showed up and paid eight dollars to see some boring old movie, and luckily we were in a theater with a black man.” She continued, “It was like he was shouting all the things that we were sitting politely thinking in our heads. I knew it was going to be good from the start, when the movie started it said ‘A Spike Lee Joint’, and the man yelled ‘I WANT TO ROLL THAT UP AND SMOKE IT!’ I mean, you can’t write humor that funny.”
Harvard Scientists have shown that African American’s have statistically raised the movie going experience by 53%. Many theaters nationwide have began hiring African American’s to simply sit in on various new releases, and provide commentary during the movie. Of course, this hiring practice has raised some eyebrows, as hiring individuals simply based off of race is unfair hiring practice, and in many cases is illegal. However those hiring have stated that they are trying to hire for a specific entertainment role, much like a script would call for a character of a specific race in a movie or television show, so the practice is not illegal or racist.
The leader of the N.A.A.C.P. (National Association for the Advancement of Caucasian People) Mel Gibson spoke out. “It is racist and unfair hiring practice to only consider African American’s for these positions. Of course it’s a job in the entertainment industry…so I think we all know who to blame for this.” Mel then pointed at his nose and winked at the camera.
