This is such a great movie, and this Scene in particular when they’re looking for lone starr by combing the Desert , all the white troops are using big oversized combs , and the black troops are using a oversized Afro pick and it’s hilarious , I wish we could go back to those times , but we are headed in the complete opposite direction , I don’t wish this because I’m racist I wish this because everyone needs to be able to laugh at themselves and their sometimes exaggerated stereotypes.. only then will the world know peace , Love thy fellow man and treat every individual with love and respect , until they give you a legitimate reason not to
@Randy Lorde Marsh , that is the beauty of Mel Brooks’ other masterpiece, Blazzing Saddles. It’s racist to everybody so everyone gets to laugh. I wish people would stop saying that we can’t make fun of certain groups and go back to letting the punches fly
@Randy Lorde Marsh , ironically, for all the bullshït woke politics, they’re more racist than ever.
Best example is Fin from the Star Wars sequel. First primary black character in the entire franchise (neither Lando Calrissian nor Mace Windu count as primary characters), and they set Fin up to be an interesting character with a unique story, only to shunt him to the background and make him a running gag, all the while removing him from the movie posters or making him tiny in them. Real progressive.
The whole mindset is reductionist, and that’s why they end up fighting against racism by being massive racists.
At least not here. We did find shjt earlier though.
