RUSH: Hollywood Pumps Out The Exact Kind Of Thing Players In The NFL Are Protesting

RUSH: I was thinking about… I was watching a couple of television shows over the weekend. One of them is Chicago P.D. (this is not to criticize the shows) and there’s also another show on HBO called The Deuce, which is about 42nd Street back in the seventies in Manhattan and the birth of the porn industry. And in both of these shows…

You know, I’m sorry for noticing this, but I have to make this observation. I’m not the first to do it by any stretch. But in both The Deuce and in these police procedurals, almost all of the African-American actors are cast as pimps, drug dealers, drug users, murderers, gang members, and it just finally hit me. Here’s Hollywood preaching to everybody. And the amount of smoking that goes on in movies and drinking! Now, here’s Hollywood preaching to us about the evils of racism and the evils of sexism, and look at the product that they pump out.

Now, black actors have to work. I mean, for every role that is available in a TV show, there’s probably 10,000 actors that want to get it. So they have to take the roles that are offered. But it is stunning to me how many of the roles are cliched and stereotypical of the exact kind of thing the players in the NFL are protesting. That’s the stuff that Hollywood pumps out. I think that there is so much internal strife and corruption, and I think they’re aware of their hypocrisy.
