White Chicks

So, is the movie White Chicks racist in your mind? Put aside that it might be an incredibly bad film for a moment; is the concept of two black men going undercover as white women offensive to you in any way?

You're axing us to put more thought into that movie than most of us would care to.

Racist? No. Unbelievably stupid? Yes. And terribly unbelievable with that awful makeup? Yes.

I'd rather read/watch Black Like Me.

It looks like a stupid movie and will be watched (mainly) by stupid people. I'd have to see it before I would say it's racist. However, seeing this movie would be as much of a waste of $8 as buying an $8 hammer and smashing myself on the head for two hours. But I would like to see what happens if two white guys play the part of two black women in a comedy movie.

There is always C Thomas Howell in Soul Man.

BTW, racism is the belief that a race is genetically inferior. It has nothing to do with making fun of stereotypes.

What's racist about a movie entitled "White Chicks"? The movie also, I assume, plays on gender stereotypes since it's two men who go undercover as women.

Without having seen the movie, I would assume it's sort of a reverse "Soul Man" meets "Tootsie" kind of thing.

Judging by the trailers, it really looks like a loser. But so did the "Scary Movie" movies. I'll see it eventually when I can see it for $1.

Yeah, we shouldn't confuse ignorance and racism. They walk together, yes, but they have their own mailboxes.

i dont know who comes up with movies like this one...honestly a movie where black guys dress as white girls...what is the point in that...the real question should be who considers this entertainment? they say evolution has made the human race smarter when if you think about it...we are making apes look pretty damn smart compared to us...i mean if we find watching movies about black guys running around with make up on acting like rich white girl intersting...we have some damn problems

I was almost lame enough to watch it. I think it was the stupidity of it or the fact that no one, I mean no one would believe that the Wayans brothers could pull off being white girls. It is unbelievable that someone would actually make a movie about black guys trying to be white chicks, thus the genius title, White Chicks! My biyfriend was right, thank God he stopped me from watching it..

I live in Georgia, usa. - Rednecks against blacks capital of the world. I don't tolerate racism and i have been hated by alot of "Rednecks" for my views on equality. But the more life i live to see... the more my views on the matter change. personally i have had 3 white "high class" girls destroy my heart by cheating on me with a black guy. (different guys). and it is purely coincidence too. Why is it that i begin to hate the black race just as the people i have opposed??? Everywhere i go i see white girls with black guys. but never white guys with black girls. why can one be accepted but the other not?? And i cannot help but think that this movie adds to the acceptance of interracial relationships in american culture. i think that the additude adapted by a race trying to be another race is actually against what their conciense trully tells them. it would probably make them feel alot better to be NORMAL like the rest of their race. And i know. I used to go aroung "acting GOTHIC" and "Worshipping Satan". but i GREW out of it! And now that im normal im happy again. E-Mail Me With Your Thoughts-(no matter what they are)

You're just not looking in the right places.

And i cannot help but think that this movie adds to the acceptance of interracial relationships in american culture.

Wait... there's a problem with that?

It always seems that when people say something like "Not to sound racist, but..." (which is essentially what I got out of that post) something racist usually ends up coming out of their mouth.

Do you also hate white guys because your girlfriend cheated on you with a white guy?

My ex-girlfriend cheated on me with a white girl. I don't hate whites or girls. I only wish she didn't feel so guilty about the cheating at the time--I mean, hey, I'm open minded . . . we could have started something.

The girl she cheated on me was fat, though--pretty butch. But, hey, I'm open minded . . . you only live once.

Here's a solution. If you can't beat 'em join 'em. Why don't you be the first white guy on your block to date an African American woman? It'd be cool. I've dated a few in my past. Guess what? They're just like real women! Some of them were even better than the white girls I've dated. If they cheat on you for an African American man, you wouldn't feel bad, based on your own words, if I understood you clearly:

think that the additude adapted by a race trying to be another race is actually against what their conciense trully tells them.

Actually, though, when people of differing races procreate, there is no one race trying to be the other. They're like a new race, or like no race at all. I have a few of these new hybrid humans for nieces. They're great! They're better than either contributing race on its own, in my opinion. (Not to be racist) ;D

All jesting aside, don't let some trashy girl cheating on you turn you into a racist as well as a cuckold. Life's too short.

Wow thanks guys. that really made me think. It's really hard to be "open minded" when bad stuff happens to you.

I think that it almost is racist. The movie actually highlights a growing trend in current western society and that is the emergence of a certain 'cool black culture' whereby black people seem to be portrayed as the cooler, better race and if you ask me, that are able to get away with racial comments alot more easily. This trend is so obvious in pop music charts where almost every song played is by a black artist. And on the film clips, it is almost as if the world is just a world of black people because everyone in the background dancing etc is alos black. From what I have seen, most black music stars are wankers the way they flaunt their 'bling bling high life' lifestyle on their film clips. On the MTV awards, which occured just last night, almost every bloody entertainer or nominee or announcer or 'special guest' or what ever was black. I think that it is a load of shit that a white person can so easily be seen as racist, however, if it is the white person who is being made fun of in some way, and the black person is the one making the fun, then of course it is all just a funny joke. Is this really racial equality? Bullshit.

Ya, Deffintly if the tables where turned and it was called black chicks, every black person in america would be losing their minds claiming rascism. Although i dont find it that offensive i think the reverse would be true. So it seems black people have to just lighten up and stop crying all the time

How ignorant is it to be offended, but not know why or how? You must be black.

Eventually time will repeat itself and racism will come back into effect. People don't know where to draw the line, eventually it goes too far and white people will lash out.

I must say that I am actually offended by some of the things you guys actually had the nerve to say. When you say "black people" you're basically referring to all... when not ALL black people are the way you describe. In my opinion you are ALL racist. Believe it or not. And I'm not white or black. I'm asian, japanese to be exact. And "redneckbabe" you're a loser because if I ever had to choose between blacks or whites I'd choose blacks just because of what you said. And you're probably ugly too. >:)

Plus white girls are tramps and sex toys for every race. Be proud of yourselves. And you're not just a "lil" weird. You're ALOT weird.

I dont care what anyone says, that movie is funny.

-Are you telling me that you are not-
-No, I'm not a woman.
-...WHITE! Oh the deception!
