White Like Me: Eddie Murphy in 1984

Loan Officer: Now, let me get this straight, Mr., ..uh.. Mr. White. You'd like to borrow $50,000 from our bank, but you have no collateral, you have no credit. You don't even have any I.D. Is that correct?

Eddie Murphy: That's right.

Loan Officer: Mr. White, I'm sorry. This is not a charity. This is a business...

White Loan Officer: Uh, Harry, why don't you, uh, take your break now? I'll take care of.. uh.. Mr. White.

Loan Officer: Well.. okay. Thanks, Bob. [ exits ]

White Loan Officer: [ laughs, then sits ] That was a close one, wasn't it?

Eddie Murphy: It certainly was.

White Loan Officer: We don't have to bother with these formalities, do we, Mr. White? Huh?

Eddie Murphy: What a silly Negro!

White Loan Officer: Just take what you want, Mr. White. Pay us back anytime. Or don't. We don't care.

Eddie Murphy: Tell me, do you know of any other banks like this in this area?

[ cut to Eddie back at the Make-up Room ]

Eddie Murphy: So, what did I learn from all of this? Well, I learned that we still have a very long way to go in this country before all men are truly equal. But I'll tell you something. [ pan to reveal Eddie's black buddies applying white make-up to their faces ] I've got a lot of friends, and we've got a lot of makeup. So, the next time you're huggin' up with some really super, groovy white guy, or you met a really great, super keen white chick, don't be too sure. They might be black.

Wow, he kind of looks like Neil deGrasse Tyson. Or Eric Holder.

Doesn't matter as they all have their hand out as well as Rachel Dolezaled whites.

A huge difference between Black on the inside and Black on the outside. Neither one of 'em do anything for me.
I have worked and gone out on patrol with all kindsa colors (and ref: Lance De Boil all kindsa sexual orientations.) I have shared ammo and last cans of C rations, saved and been saved by any of them. Gave blood for one of my partners, was a stone Black from Mississippi, he called me his token White and I called him" Coonass". He didn't like Cajuns too much.
Point to that is, we didn't judge except could the guy do his job. What they do at home or who they pray to none of our business. Job at hand, that's it, that's all that mattered.

It's about time we transcended little shit that really doesn't matter. There gonna be different folks and different strokes from now until Armageddon.
You think God's gonna say "Uh, hold on a second. This guy's Black or she's queer, this guy if from Wisconsin, a cheesehead. Er, we don't want their types up here in heaven"?

As I tell my Baptist preacher son, he's got a pretty good idea who's gonna make it to Heaven, I tell him, "son, you gonna be surprised who you meet once you get up there, inside the Pearly Gates".

Oh the horror - a meritocracy. Or a place where you judged a man by the content of his character, not the color of his skin. The progs are trying hard to put an end to that shit.

Yeah, Jim, the progs are striving for a lowest-common-denominator demographic.
With, ah, exceptions:
you get more points if you're a Monkey Man or think you are, or ever talked to one or read about one in a book;
more points if you're queer;
even more points if you surgically mutilate your body and dress up in drag;
more points if you ever got a speeding ticket or otherwise suffered under the hands of jack-booted thugs;
more points if you defaulted on a low-rate mortgage or suffered under the gangsters of Big Money;
More and more, lemme see now, did I leave anyone out? I know, all the victims and losers.
What the progs don't see is that "lowest common denominator" would have them living in grass huts and shitting in the river, just like the Monkey Men back on the old continent.
Further what they don't see is that they are so weak and pitiful a handful of Patriotic Rebel Biker Vets for Freedom could push them into the lands of Ferguson and Baltimore and other enclaves of Nigger Thugs so they can practice what they screech.

'Bout time somebody started pushing back. I don't mean like the Waco fiasco which was probably a field exercise for Jade Helm with collateral damage of expendable players. Notice no loose ends there?
Same as the goofball that shot up the Dallas PD, a Manchurian Candidate programmed to shoot and run. No loose ends there either.
G**gle up 4DW for some fun reading.
