More often than not woke gets used incorrectly.
These movies were full of sexy and over exaggerated stereotypes of the African American race that painted the masses in a bad light which angered the black population who were dealing with the Civil Rights movement at the time. While the hero of your everyday white film would be someone like Superman, or some larger than life cowboy these movies portrayed pimps, thugs, and hookers as the heroes and main focus. They also had these black characters performing larger than life acts of revenge and heroics against their white foes which angered many due to some seeing these things as a mockery. Some members of black audiences fed up with various racially driven hate crimes viewed these movies as a bad joke thinking things along the lines of,”A real black wouldn’t get away with doing something like that to any white. Later on however we find the influence and success of these films had positive effects as well.
15 Sick Sociopaths You Thought Were Hot Come on, admit it, we love the crazies. And since the 1970’s movies have introduced us to a slew of twisted, depraved killers and sociopaths that shock us but also deeply intrigue us.

Critics mangled it, and judging from the box office, general public didn 't like it either. It 's easy to see why. This was supposed to be an action/comedy movie with lots of humor and some cool action scenes. But, the jokes were horrendous. I think my sense of humor covers a broad spectre of jokes; I find a lot of things hilarious.
“The Hateful Eight”, Quentin Tarantino’s stupefying successor of “Django Unchained”, is blatantly more controversial than the latter, sarcastically blending delicate topics like racism and sexism with others usually picked to infuse some morality in the tales, such as greediness, dominance, and subjugation. Taking advantage of his huge capacity to disconcert the viewers with fulminant action scenes and zesty dialogues, the celebrated director ridicules pain and human disgrace in such a way that it’s impossible not to laugh, even when the jokes jump out of the bounds of good taste. He deliberately makes use of the same hilarious tones and erratic routines as in “Django”, but this time, confining his eight untamed characters to a stagecoach stopover called Minnie’s Haberdashery. This way, he fabricates a sort of “Reservoir Dogs” from Far West. Divided into chapters, this three-hour mystery western set in the freezing post-war Wyoming,
Through these characters, African Americans are brought down to mere stereotypes, being entertaining and performance-oriented, as well as several stereotypical characters like those of a minstrel, Uncle Tom, and Mammy, which all stem from slavery. These stereotypes, in conjunction with the ambiguity of the time period, seems very racially insensitive and demeaning to African Americans who would potentially watch this movie. However, this movie still transcends both its racial undertones and other movies that have followed this treatment of race such as “Gone With the Wind,” which had also featured Hattie McDaniel as a servant literally named Mammy. Although the sentiment the workers have for Miss Sally’s family is genuine happiness, care and concern, this movie features one of the most amicable relationships between whites and African Americans, which is very positive in this age of heavy racial discrimination. In addition, the racial issues are not the main focus of the film.
While Othello seems an insane story, the plot teaches that jealousy and deception can destroy many people, including those who seek benefits through channeling their feelings. A major liar attempts to create fights between his acquaintances, assuming he will get by doing so. His lies create some bloody circumstances and ultimately lead to his undoing. He controls the story and is later despised once the plot is foiled. Iago exploits creases in the feelings of Othello and Desdemona to create conflicts.
In the current generation, people are ignorant and refuse to listen to reason, especially when they know that they are absolutely wrong. Plato, the philosopher that he is, wants people to understand his words and actions. He wants the people to realize that they are living in their own fantasy world. He wants to show everybody that there is a whole new world when it comes to life itself and that people need to see the bigger picture. His intentions are good, if not, extraordinary.
“Keepin’ it real”, an essential standard in the distinguishing racial identity as an African American, or so it was until Mark Steyn drags it through an abrasive bath of satire and exposes it for what he truly thinks it is, a detriment to the black community, and society as whole. Steyn exposes the hypocrisy and flaws in mindset African American cultural leadership that has allowed this new "outlook" to flourish through a scathing assault comprised of exemplification, irony, definition. An instrumental tool in his tirade against the cultural leaders whom he believes are dragging down the black community is exemplification. Using this technique he is able to deconstruct the issue and attack its individual facets. He introduces
In our society today, it is almost impossible to go a day without seeing some sort of subtlety involving stereotypes. Our reaction is what will determine whether they will be continued to be shown in the extremity they are in this day and age. Stereotypes do have the ability to teach others of how things might have been in the past, but that does not mean they are true now. We must be mindful of their effects and remember that people are hurt from them despite how funny someone else thinks it
Of course, there are some blacks fights for the unjust treatment, but others submitted to the unjust treatment. “In part of few middle-class Negroes who, because of a degree of academic and economic security and because in some ways they profit by segregation, have become insensitive to the problems of the masses” (King 7). This is very dreadful phenomenon because some of blacks bribed by the government, and it reduce the strength of against evil. We should remembered bitter experience; we should say “on more” for the unjust treatment; we should change the way people thought. Only if all the blacks and other minorities unity together, this world will become better.
Not only by being insubordinate but by sending lies back home, his actions provide an initial impression of immorality. Beyond this literal interpretation, Heller goes out of his way to ensure that the word “Death” is capitalized and stands out as a command. While Yossarian’s enthusiasm towards this dark word taints his jovial view of the situation, the emphasis on such a word juxtaposed next to the word “game” creates an ominous yet comedic tone. Heller creates a parallel between Yossarian and war. He sounds ridiculous; war sounds ridiculous.
Mustapha Mond comes to understand that the world state cannot allow the public to learn the truth because they have created a system where if the people found out they could have a choice of job it would destabilize the society. In addition to making Mustapha Mond unhappy, it demonstrates a key problem in Brave New World because the general happiness of the people comes at the loss of the freedom to choose what they do with their life.

In Brave New World to hide the truth and keep the people happy they can not have the freedom to choose their job.
