I think they should call the ‘wise, old black man’ stereotype the ‘Morgan Freeman Stereotype’. I think that would pretty much cover it, don’t you?
I love these videos because they are funny and I’m a chat show/podcast/video kind of woman. That being said, I have yet to watch one of these videos without thinking, “Hey, they really have a point there…”
Is the ‘wise x person’ really Hollywood’s way of saying, “I’m sorry! We really don’t hate you!”? It seems to me like it really is…
PS. Yay! They mentioned Angel from Rent. Rent happens to be my favourite musical. Love!
