No a Apocalypto

Having viewed a screening of Apocalypto at UCSB on December 3rd, I walked away recognizing three main points within Mel Gibson’s movie. This first colors the entire story, seemingly as a kind of guiding moral: "the good Indian is the savage one in the forest." There is absolutely nothing appealing about Maya city-life in this movie- no indication that Maya urban centers flourished in the region for hundreds of years. Instead, religious figures are depicted as fraudulent or heavily drugged; political figures are fat and passive (both of these characterizations having been lifted straight from The Road to El Dorado); and everyone else seems to be living a nightmare of hard labor, servitude, famine, and/or disease.

Say ‘Ninja,’ not the other N-word

Following Michael Richards’ now infamous racist tirade at the comedy club The Laugh Factory, Damon Wayans apparently decided to test the club’s ban on the N-word. After dropping the n-bomb 15 times during his set, Wayans was fined and banned from the club for three months. Evidently Wayans did not get the memo that the club doesn’t let anyone say the n-word, no matter your race.
My ninjas, watch your damn mouth!
