Racism In The Bond Series

Quartz talks about “how American films use black cops for comic relief” today as a perspective to show racism in the U.S. (http://qz.com/194730/how-american-films-use-black-cops-for-comic-relief/). It reminds me of Jackie Chan the Clown in Hollywood, a deep contrast compared to Jet Li who has tried almost everything, including a role similar to that of Tarzan in Unleashed. Unfortunately, a monkey is still smarter than a dog. Style also matters. Forget it. I don’t want to talk about it anymore. Jet Li sucks. By the way, my blog is about an iterator as a range-safe pointer, which can possibly be retrieved through a jetter method instead of a getter method, hence the jet.

A View to a Kill is the only Bond movie in which I have ever seen a black Bond girl. In fact, she is not really a Bond girl. She was used by James Bond and tossed away just like that, almost like trash to be buried in a cave. And she was. Of course, she asked for it so that James Bond could still look good. Well, I haven’t seen all of the Bond movies, as I don’t have time for that. However, if you have ever seen another black Bond girl for comparison, please let me know. Skyfall doesn’t count. As I said, Skyfall is probably the only Bond movie with a touch of tragedy and sadness woven into its plot to make it a bit more interesting compared to other Bond movies. Maybe I am wrong on this one, too. If you have seen a Bond movie without a happy ending, please let me know also. Comparative analysis is always easy and fun.

Again, I don’t care about what happens in movies. I care only about reality.
