As an offshoot of this whole Kavanaugh/Ford fiasco, and I know they were supposedly kids when this went down, but it hits home just how different and scary it is being a single, dating man in 2018. With dating apps and instagram and what not that I've used. You have to be so careful.

Rocky always says 'crazy is the best fuck'. You can't risk that shit anymore. It's so hard to trust anyone now because of all the women that have been outed now as total scheming bullshitters (not including Ford). You basically have to bounce at the first sign of crazy. I've been lucky so far, but you have to be extremely careful.


Indeed. I'm happy I'm not single in the 21st century, amidst the current zeitgeist.

If you ever see an old white dude with dots tattooed on his digits he lives by 1%ER Credo find one, feel one, forget one, find another. Your bones. This information should be sold, not told, I want paid.

The Passage is coming to TV. Amy, the blonde white girl is cast with a black girl. Fans react:

I'm more worried that it's adapted for a network TV show. And that Zach Morris is playing Wolgast.

Totally.

It's gonna blow. Sounds like maybe a summer 2019 show? I'll make sure to finish the trilogy by then so as not to false. :)

I'm not saying it's gonna suck (it probably will), but if it does suck, it'll probably not be because they cast a black girl. Kind of like a Dark Tower movie situation.

That being said, it's the type of people who make those superficial changes who also make non-superficial changes.

idris elba was the best part of that dark tower movie, the rest of it was crushed by the weight of its own shittiness

Yep. But what I'm saying is that the same people who thought it was a good idea to ignore the source material for the main character were also the same people who thought it was OK to completely ignore the source material for everything else and make a 90 minute popcorn movie.

Elba is a great actor, and if that was the only change they made, it would have been a fantastic movie. But it wasn't. And it wasn't.

Still haven't seen it. Never will. Maybe eventually one day it'll be done right. TV would probably the only way at this point.


I get a bit of a kick out of this stuff, because not only does it stray from the source material that people love, but I can just imagine the complete and utter outrage had the reverse happened. Had Amy been a black girl and was changed into a white blonde girl.

In this case, it isn't as paramount as making Roland black. As has been said, the fact he was white and Odetta/Detta/Susannah was black was a major plot device in possible the best book(s) in the series. Changing that doomed everything, the source material, from the get go.


"Detta Walker is an alternate personality of Susannah Dean. This personality was created when Jack Mort dropped a brick on the head of Odetta Holmes. Detta is a violent and base individual ruled by sexual desire. She is fueled by hatred towards white people, calling them "honky mahfahs". Her accent represents a stereotyped view of how black people speak. Eddie Dean once described it as being part Butterfly McQueen and part Foghorn Leghorn.

Unlike Odetta, Detta's personality reappears on numerous occasions throughout the series, sometimes helping and sometimes hindering Roland Deschain and his Ka-Tet. As is the case when in Blaine's Cradle where Detta solves the riddle of the prime numbers running backwards. "




Amy being black doesn't change anything, and to be honest, it's been a handful of years since I read The Passage, and even though when I saw that (because I started reading The Twelve recently don't tell me what you thought of it! :) ) I was like 'wha? wasn't amy a little white girl?", I had to double check. Amy can be any race really. It wouldn't matter. Her race wasn't a plot point/device.

What do you guys think the reaction would be if Amy actually was a black girl but they changed her into a white blonde girl?

I think the reaction would be equally as stupid.

But this has already happened in Ghost In The Shell. Asian character played by Scarlet Johansen. Internet complains.

Here's my thoughts on it. Right now, everybody is just sitting twiddling their thumbs waiting for something to complain about. The right is waiting for something to pin on the left. The left is waiting for something to pin on the right. It's utter fucking nonsense if you ask me.

The same shit happened years ago and people didn't complain as much. I don't remember people complaining about Morgan Freeman as Red. I don't remember people complaining about Mos Def as Ford Prefect. At least not to any level we have now.

Whiny little snowflakes on both sides (#bothsides) need to scrape the fucking sand out of their vaginas and fuck off. Not everything needs to be about race. Not everything needs to be seen as part of some kind of political or social agenda.

Assuming things don't get progressively worse, this will be looked upon as one of the more embarrassing periods in recent history.

The thing is, I don't think any studio would ever even contemplate making that kind of change in 2018 because of the absolute outrage that would directed at them from every social justice warrior on the planet, white black red yellow brown whatever.

In the case of Amy, the only people that will react will be white people.

Agreed. And as it turns out, because Stephen King and co. said 'fuck The Dark Tower anyways, it didn't matter in the end that Roland was black.

Exactly, it was the thing that mattered the least in that movie. And one of the few redeeming qualities.
