The racism and illogic in “The Day the Earth Stood Still”

December 17, 2008

Once again it’s whitey to the rescue. This time whitey is saving the Earth from us. The humans have got to go. Why is the alien, played by Keanu Reeves, reconstructed as a white man when only one in eleven people on the planet is white? I am so tired of this Anglo-centric, socially engineered, Jewish tripe coming out of Hollywood. Greedy old white men are the ones largely responsible for the destruction of the environment so why does the entire human race need to perish when it’s greedy old white men in power who have caused it?

The second problem with this movie is the aliens deciding not to destroy the human race because they realized that humans were at the precipice of change and that we deserved the same chance they themselves had. According to the aliens they evolved over time to save their planet but just in the apparent knick of time. Humans evolve slowly and there is no guarantee that evolution would make us more considerate of the environment or make us more morally upright.

Saving our environment from collapse is a choice that humans need to make in the present which means forgoing profits for the well-being of all living things. Sounds like an easy choice but we are a myopic race. If there is no present danger humans usually see none at all and that is how it will end for us. The elite will one day find another planet to live on and they will leave the rest of us here to die after all resources are exhausted. If we are waiting on evolution to correct our own mistakes then we are really just waiting to die.
