The nominees of the 76th Academy Awards (Oscar) were announced yesterday. But what I wanna say here is not listing the movies. I'm talkin' about what you sometimes see in American movies including The Lord of the Rings. This movie is nominated for 11 awards!! But it's an offensive movie and Non-Caucasian people have been teased in it. If you get in to the detail of some other American movies, you'll find that it happens in many of them. Consider Bruce Almighty although I like it very much but there's a scene that bullies go for Bruce and beat him up. They have been all selected from colored guys. Hispanic and Black fellows. Same thing in many other movies. In Indiana Jones and the temple of doom, East Indian people and in Raiders of the lost Ark, Egyptian (and in a wider view, Arabs) are teased and looked down.
