#3 He added that he would "love" to see a racial change of characters in the upcoming X-Men movies.


Scarlett Johannssen in blackface?

#4 "one of the beauties of making comic books into movies" is that the material is so moronic that it can appeal to a billion morons drawn from across all the races ... and make billionaires out of cynical white Hollywood film industry execs

#5 The recently released 'The Boys' series was actually quite a critique of hollow and mindless following of pathological frauds as 'hero figures' and idols by moronic masses. It revealed the frailty of the individual, the citizen before the 24/7 digital power of the idol worshiping MSM and the super villains disguised as heroes themselves.

Did you know that the Stan Winston designed Predator are a race called Hish that are actually hermaphrodites that seasonally change from male to female and back ? They hunt and kill when they're males and rule and administrate as females.

#7 When he sells as many novels as Ian Fleming did, his characters can be any race, gender, orientation or whatever he wants. In the meantime, leave James Bond alone.

#8 Great men make history. The generations that follow are usually much lower. Especially those who want to be women.

#9 I say, run the experiment. Spent the $200-300 million recent cost to make a James Bond film, this time going all the way over with with a black, female actress — Halle Berry, perhaps, who could do for the Bond franchise what she did for Catwoman.

#10 To get enough woke points, Bond will have to be a transgender person of color. (White is not to be considered a color).

#12 Supposedly it's already been decided that the next Bond will be a black woman. Don't think they aren't happy to flush a franchise down the toilet, look at what they've done to Star Wars.

#13 Still waiting for the white Shaft or the remake of Roots with an all Korean cast.

#15 I wanna see a black Hitler. How about Ben Affleck in blackface playing Idi Amin ? If all art is really a diversity experiment, why not ?

#16  I wanna see a black Hitler.

Well, you did ask.

#17 Actually, I agree with Buttigieg, as I'm one of those who holds the theory that within the film franchise the names "James Bond" and "007" are really code words for whatever drunken, horny, crazily armed maniac the British Secret Service can throw at a problem. That's why there's been six of them so far that we know about. If a black woman can do a great job of sleeping with, shooting, and blowing up Her Majesty's enemies with a maximum of collateral damage and no regard for her own safety the, yeah, she's Jane Bond 007. No problem. Bang Bang Kaboom!

However, I have no idea why I or anybody else should care that Mayor Pete thinks. Is he still running for president?
