I think anyone with an ounce of critical thinking skills can figure out that there is a very clear reason for this new awareness of the impact of art and culture.

Translation:

I'm an ageist Woketard from MENSA and I'm here to help.

woketard? That's a good one old timer.


But if you need help figuring it out, I need some volunteer hours so I could probably come down to the community center and read to you for an hour or so.

Oh, I suspect you could save the planet even better by delivering crayons and baby food to your dorm neighbors.

"Oriental" stopped being ok to say about 30 years ago, grandpa.
Anyway, you guys getting genuinely mad about this stuff is hilarious. Is it a good theoretical analysis? I'd say not really, but that's the point of academic/journalistic write-ups like these. Grasp at straws and get people talking for rebuttal, not to mention the clicks and sharing of the article in question. It's really not that deep, everyone lol



"Oriental" is the word used in the actual article that the OP linked to, Brainiac. big grin

And I don't see anyone here actually getting upset.
But if you didn't make that claim, then you wouldn't have a windmill to tilt to, right? wink

Oriental to refer to cultural styles (i.e. oriental rug, oriental tropes in music or art) is okay.

I recall a few months ago someone posted a link to a gender studies graduate dissertation on star trek music. The article was universally panned by most of the old timers on this board who are likely all old white men.

But then you begin the third paragraph by telling us "I get it". No, doesn't seem it...


Several admitted to only reading the abstract and being turned off by the so-called "liberal feminist buzzwords" (my paraphrase). We see this kind of close-mindedness in politics and it has sadly spilled over into rational discussion of art and culture as well.

If I start seeing buzzwords and phrase from some flat Earth believer, it's not close-mindedness to point it out and spend time wisely.



I get it. It sucks to be called out.

This begins with the false narrative that people who write idiot articles like the one this thread is about, has a foundation of truth and therefore it's calling out people. If a little kid calls you a "Stupid doody head!", you are not being "called out". Adults in the room must prevail.


Hollywood was founded and run by white males. No fault of mine. No fault of theirs. That was the times.

Librarian guy from "Ghostbusters": "What does that have to do with anything?"


But, as another old white guy once said, the times, they are a changing.

Times are not changing. A vocal minority of 'tards are spewing diarrhea of the brain like they have been since 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, etc., etc., etic.


I think anyone with an ounce of critical thinking skills can figure out that there is a very clear reason for this new awareness of the impact of art and culture.

This reminds me of that time about a month ago where Mr. Marshall said something like everybody would agree with him on something, when it was clear nobody would, and surprise surprise, nobody did. He should have seen that coming.


Did Williams set out to write a racist score? Of course not! and the mere fact that the word racist is being used is a clear example of irrational dialogue. This article is meant to stir up emotions.

Well, can't say I disagree with you, except for the last point, but that's for another day.


I get how some of the die-hards are claiming that the representation is clunky and shoe-horned and pandering...to that, I say, so what? Welcome to capitalism baby!

That's not how Capitalism works.

Tell it to the guy that wrote the article.
I was quoting that word for accuracy's sake--not because I use it myself.

Man, reading comprehension has really become a lost art.

(Hey guys, do you think my "Brainiac" reference was too "grampa"?)

You won't. Know-it-alls are always the last to know.

No, I've used it for years. Boiled the blood of many a MENSA wannabe.

I fail to see your point, though you did a good job of explaining why you think my points are wrong. I'm not going to go through and reply to all of your comments. I'll just say it again, anyone with an ounce of critical thinking skills can figure out that there is a very clear reason for this new awareness of the impact of art and culture.

I can see I must have hit a bit of a nerve for some of ya'll wink

All my brainiac friends know that MENSA only measures your ability to see patterns and does not accurately gauge intelligence.

Incidentally, I'm eating ramen soup for lunch right now.
I hope that's okay.

Peace. Out.
(That's how the groovy kids talk now, right?)

Jeez, Grampa, you're eating dormitory food, the Wheaties of Woketards©­­. That's cultural appropriation!

The use of the suffix "tard" by some contributors on this thread is rather disheartening but, frankly, not surprising. It says more about the person using it than the person it is directed to. These are some of the things they teach you in college.

Dunno about the score, but the prequels specifically were full of some really glaring racial stereotypes — Neimoidians, Watto, Jar Jar...

Even worst example than Williams. So bad, the composer's name is absent from the credits:

Sucks to be called out, eh? wink

1. Keep repeating a boilerplate phrase: "Anyone with an ounce of critical thinking...", instead of being frank and honest about what you mean. - Check!
2. Instead of discussing points, refer to others as too old - cuz we know that wisdom fades after one is 30, never gains. - Check!
3. Instead of discussing points, be pleased that you "hit a nerve" and thus won the debate - since it means the other debaters are the emos - Check!
4. Use "y'all." - Check!

Congratulations! You're an idiot! big grin

Is there your official diagnosis? Thanks for providing useful discussion. Also, doesn't change any of my points. Just because I didn't feel like typing them out again--you can reread my orginal post if there is something you didn't understand, I was very succinct. I only get nasty when others do.
