Does Hollywood have an agenda other than making profitable movies?

Obviously until recently their somewhat secret agenda was to keep a pipeline of women arriving into the hands of Harvey Weinstein and co.

But I mean more broadly, do they have a cultural or political agenda?

Recently a movie called 12 Strong, starring Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon was released. It’s a war movie about the CIA and US Special operations in Afghanistan after 9/11.

I like a war film as much as the next red blooded male, but one thing that struck me as somewhat odd was the casting of Michael Pena and Trevante Rhodes as squad members Sam Diller and Ben Milo. Michael Pena is a Hispanic and Trevante Rhodes is an African American, but both of the real US special forces members they are playing are of European descent:

From La Prensa:

Interviewer: How do you feel about being part of this story of the American war history?

Michael Pena: [It] Was great, It’s tough to say that it feels great. I guess it is more an honor that I’m part of this movie. The role was written as a Latino and also there was an African American. I think it was Jerry Bruckheimer and the rest of the guys wanted something different and they were open to other ethnicities and I think it’s really cool, you know? I think it’s an honor but at the same time it also really cool that for people to see that, because there are Latinos in the military, a lot of Latinos in Special Armed Forces and for America and it shows that we are a hard working people.

Interviewer: Because the original Sgt. Sam Diller is not a Latino?

Michael Pena: No, he’s not a Latino, so I don’t know if anybody told him, but he’s going to be really surprised when he sees the movie…

Michael Pena.

From Eurweb:

“Trevante plays Ben Milo, a big burly Chicago bred weapons and demo man with a soft spot and a heart of gold, who forms a special bond with one of the Afghani children. Ben is the one everyone looks to for a heartwarming moment. In real life Ben is Caucasian. Trevante had no issue playing a character who in real life is not African-American. He felt “honored” being cast in the role and accepted it because he likes being involved in relevant projects and working with Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon and Jerry Bruckheimer were selling points. We’ll just attribute winning the role to good casting.”

Just good casting!

Trevante Rhodes.

Why did Hollywood and Jerry Bruckheimer’s production choose to cast non-whites in the place of real whites in a supposedly true story film?

Was it so the movie would appeal to blacks and hispanics, who would not see a movie or empathise with only white main characters?

Was it to convince Americans that both blacks and hispanics are serving in the military heroically alongside European descended Americans, and that therefore civic nationalism is working as intended?

Is this connected to the #OscarsSoWhite?

Will Idris Elba be the next James Bond?

Any theories XYZ readers?

        That gets you banned on this site. But 100% true.

    It’s more inappropriate than having a black guy play the part of Macbeth, because at least they can say Shakespeare wrote fiction. But this is something entirely different. In their words, this would be lies, cultural appropriation and racism. They can’t have it both ways.
    Hollywood are total sell outs who care only about making money. Ben Affleck did the same when he played the part of an Hispanic in the movie Argo.
    They don’t give a shit.

    But non-white roles being played by white people? INCONCEIVABLE!!

  • They’re not meant to make money.

    That’s not their purpose.

    Hollyweird’s goal is cultural marxism, just like all the other leftists across the globe.

    Hollywood will churn out and reboot any genre that brings in the shekels.
    Hollywood has no shame or conscience or morality.
    Hollywood is the vile propaganda arm of ZOG, replete with every type of kiddy raping scum-sucking opportunist lowlife imaginable.

    Mickey Rooney playing a very bad Japanese older guy in Breakfast at Tiffany’s still cracks me up. I miss old comedies where you could make a few racial jokes and no one would throw a fit. Or movies like Ace Ventura where the villain was a transsexual. Good luck ever doing a remake of that movie.

    Oh boy, cant wait until Matt Damon plays the role of Barak Obama or Whoopi Goldberg as Queen Elizabeth. There’s a couple of movies sure to be box office smashes. What about Serena Williams in the role of Winx?

    I went to see this and I thought “WTF”. At the end of the movie they showed a picture of the original 12 horse soldiers – all white guys and I thought, oh yeah (((Jerry Bruckhiemer))), (((Hollywood))).
