Transformers Are Racist!

By DillDoe | July 3, 2007

If and when you see Micheal Bay’s Transformer, you’ll notice right off that Autobot Jazz (Pontiac Solstice) is suppose to be Black (African American).
And stereotypically so!
He break dances when he transformer. Uses Ebonics to communicate (wonder which sites he’s been surfing)
And for those who remember the racist joke, would know what the acronym Pontiac stood for (Poor Old Nigga Thinks It’s A Cadillac)

The only way it could get more racist if he was parked in front of a KFC with a watermelon stand next to it.
Or maybe when he crashes thru a wall he’ll scream, “Oh YEAH!”
DVD extras I bet, lol

    You forgot to mention he is the only Autobot to die and, can’t be fixed, which means no sequel…

    Are you intellectually challenged , were you dropped as a child. The JAZZ character is pretty much the same as in the ORIGINAL cartoon. What a great idea to keep as much of the orginal characters we remember from our childhood. Where else did Jazz die , oh ya in the First Transformers movie. Maybe research something that sounded like it was important to yourself ? Other wize you are just an inspiration for birth control. To add insult to injiry , Bay didn’t even write the Movie , only directed. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0418279/fullcredits#writers

    Grow up it was a great film for fans of the original show. Not an Oscar contender but great entertainment.

    that ghost kid is an idiot, not to mention he tries to sound all smart and politically correct but he cant even spell “otherwise”. but hey, this is pretty funny, and anyone who can’t tell it’s just a joke has issues.

    BTW jazz did not die in Transformers the movie(1986). He and Cliffjumper lived…yeah I’m a nerd.LOL. Watch it and u’ll see. My kids watch it a lot and it brings back a lot of memories. I think the movie was done well. Stop being so sensitive people….Oh and BTW i’m black. So I don’t get offended when a character dies that was voiced by a black dude….

    wow, suukbang, you’re an idiot.

    you didn’t see how racist this movie was? like how Bernie Mac’s character called his mother “mammy” and after that, called her “bitch” (just because dave chappelle can pull it off doesn’t mean that EVERY black person can do it)?

    or what about Anthony Anderson’s character? he was supposed to be the only one smart enough to hack the alien computer, and yet he was acting like a pussy when the feds got him, broke down after telling his friend about dealing with authority (which it looked like she already knew, being a reporter and all), and kept stuffing his face and spazing out almost all of the goddamn time.

    and let’s not forget jazz. his first words in the movie was “sup, bitches?” HIS FIRST WORDS! (and the fact that he was voiced by Scatman Crothers made me wonder why he didn’t turn down the job in the 1st place). but the icing on the cake was the fact that HE WAS THE ONLY AUTOBOT TO DIE. and the fact that he was ripped beyond repair means that there’ll be no jazz in the sequel. what happened to him right there is bittersweet because i didn’t want to know that his stereotypical ass would be in the sequel, and yet, he was the only good guy to die (and just like a bitch, too).

    so you see, that is why i hated that movie with a passion and why when the sequel come out, i’d rather download it illegally and sell it on the street than give money to be offended

    Y’all really wanna talk about racism? cause i say sup bitches and I’m a little white girl… The older I get, the more I realize that I am part of the first American generation that truly transcends race… Sorry you guys can’t get that it finally doesn’t matter to a vast majority of the younger generations

    Blue moon, your comments were in true white girl form, part of white privilege is that you can “ignore” race but if you are of color that is not realistic. Someone or something will always be around to remind you.

    Okay, you say the movie is racist. So you are saying that the black and hispanic actors that play the voices and the parts are also racist. Does that make any kind of sense to you, really? Think about what you are saying, how can you be racist of your own race. Idiot! Besides their friggin robots, they don’t have a race stupid.

    Maybe if black people dont want to be stereotyped they shouldnt act the way they do.. (not all mind you) I mean seriously you guys say its a stereotype that one has a gold tooth, but stereotypes are supposed to be negative portrayals of a certain race, and if having a gold tooth is negative then why do so many rap stars and thug wannabes have them? as for them not being able to read thats not a stereotype that applies to blacks it applies to a lot of americans, in fact most americans now a days only read 1 book a year, dont try to take out your frustrations on something just because it shows you as others see you.

    Yeah, the movie is totally racist!!! When they showed their home planet – I swear that I saw a cotton field with Jazz in it being whipped by Optimus Prime… (sarcasm)

    It wasn’t Amistad, its transformers.

    You know what is racist… The Incredible Hulk, it makes all green people look bad! So stereotypical.

    Okay for real? Im not white and I really do not see the big issue. All I see this as is a way for somebody just to complain about a movie they clearly do not like. If there wasnt a “robot” in the movie with a “ethnic” voice you would have found another way to complain. It is NOT racist.
