Everything is Racist: Toy Story 4 Edition

This week, we were unsurprised to see disgraced former football player Colin Kaepernick whining on Twitter about how the strike against Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani was further evidence of America’s racist so-and-so and just another example of imperialist this-and-that and something, something “brown and black bodies.” Kaepernick would have nothing else to do if he didn’t have his controversial opinion factory (to go along with the sweatshop factories churning out his sneakers).

We were a little surprised, however, to flick past The Hollywood Reporter this week and find writer Stephen Galloway opining, at length, about the inherent racism of…Toy Story 4?

Yes, everything is racist, indeed.

From the essay:

In many ways TS4’s worldview seems like an Eisenhower-era fantasy, a vision of America that might have come from the most die-hard reactionary: lovely if you’re wealthy and white, but alarming if you’re black or brown or gay or a member of any other minority — in other words, more than half the U.S. population.

True, there are a few characters of color (including two supporting players voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele); but each of the leads is Caucasian, and not just the franchise regulars but a host of new ones including a very white fork (Tony Hale) that’s among the more memorable — and merchandisable — creations of this fourth iteration in the series.

As Matthew Cherry, the African American director of animated short Hair Love, recently told The Hollywood Reporter: “When you don’t see yourself represented and you don’t see people with your same type of hair seen as the hero and seen as loving and desired, it really does a number on your self-confidence.”

How is it that a professional critic could watch the words “a very white fork” appear on the screen and not take a second to reflect on the complete inanity of what he is writing? Did Mr. Galloway have such a moment? Did he look up at the ceiling for a couple of seconds and think, “Really…is this what I’ve been reduced to?” before penning the rest of this nonsense? Or is he such a true believer that he really thinks that pontificating on the “whiteness” of Toy Story 4 (!) is a worthwhile expenditure of his time?

We have to assume the latter, because only someone very steeped in social-justice Kool-aid could write the following sentence: “Take 2006’s Cars: its humor was based on all sorts of foreign stereotypes, inadvertently encouraging the anti-immigrant prejudice that’s now running rampant through the country.”

If you’re at the point where you’re suggesting, even to a small degree, that the humor of Cars (!!) is tangentially related to “anti-immigrant prejudice” in America today, then it’s time to turn off your computer, grab your toaster, draw a hot bath, and…enjoy some toast while you relax in your bath.

What? That’s a thing.

What do you think?

  1. Too many THIN SKINNED people in this world, always complaining but never accepting any responsibility for their own actions, it’s always someone else’s fault and they are the victim.

  2. when you begin telling writers what characters to put in their stories and begin doing mental gyrations to show your disapproval (my god) by dictating to them some sort of “socially acceptable” racial balance that must be adhered to. you have lost sight of america. if you think you have a better story, just write it! or if you just don’t like the story, choose another. that is america!

  3. From space the earth looks white and blue. Guess the damn EARTH is racist too. Time for all the “wokes” to leave. Please do!

  4. Attacking children now? Guess the leftists’ have nothing better to do with their time. The FIRST AMENDMENT coves the Freedom of Speech, which includes what we write, speak, or choose to read. If this ‘African-American’ whiner doesn’t’ like the fact that there are few ‘black’ representatives in our comic books or other works of art as Mr. Cherry suggests, then he should get off his duff and provide his brand of comic books and other works of art. Most of those comic books were invented in the early 20th century; why should they change now? This is getting ridiculous. As for having ‘gay’ representation, forget it–no one wants to have their lifestyle explained to them, we already know it is perverted and an abomination to our Lord. Now, if the gay population deems itself so important, they should also write their own little comic books and stories. Leave the really talented people alone and quit dictating to them.

    • Hey! They even have adult comics at Eros Comics/8muses for those who want to see gay sex on rampant display in online comic book form! Basically, it is white Republicans that the Dem-Wit followers of the Dem-Rat Party are really seeking to attack and their culture on all levels because it tends to produce Trump supporters from their perspective!
      The leftists seek to change all forms of cultural expression to represent their jaded world view that they denounce Republicans of having so as to marginalize Republicans out of society creating their desired poke-a-dot world as the only world around! Let’s call it what it is-cultural/political genocide of the leftists to create a world for, by and of the leftists! Is what it is!

      • Well said! And Marvel Comics has followed these idiots with their plan to introduce a trans-gender hero! What a load of BS!!! I suppose they would be dancing in the streets to see Superman wearing a Wonder Woman costume. Eat it Marvel and go to Hell!!!!!!! Stop trying to shove a sick, twisted, perverted, and completely disgusting lifestyle down everyone’s throat. We don’t have to agree with it and we don’t have to accept it you sick, deranged morons!

  5. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
