There is no evidence its just.... """""""" I JUST *KNOW* """"""
The problem is made worse by people claiming racism without nary a bit of evidence that racism exists.Not only does it ignore the problem, it just make the problem worse.
And Melissa McCarthy, as a large white woman, will be likely to be similarly pigeonholed as well.
So I will believe that such things don't matter any more when Melissa McCarthy is able to play a variety of dramatic roles if she auditions for them and seems capable of fulfilling those roles.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
I agree that sometimes people misinterpret people's actions as racist, sexist or whatever. People misinterpret each other's actions all the time. A black person might misinterpret someone's treatment of him as "racism" when the person mistreating is just generally a jerk to everyone. A husband might misinterpret his wife's desire to go out with friends rather than him as her not loving him anymore. Misinterpretations happen, but acting like you're superior to people because you think they've misinterpreted something (even when you don't know that they did) is the wrong way to deal with that reality.

You are supposed to make your own god damned experiences...........This is EXACTLY where the continued problem will lie, people teaching their kids to resent "the white man" for reasons that they shouldn't have, just because their worthless parents had it.
Ditto and the same for ignorant racist whites teaching their children to hate blacks for no goddamn reason.
EDIT: It is one thing to hear racist **** from ignorant racist people in the neighborhood and town......... Hearing racist **** doesn't hold someone back from achieving success outside of that small racist town. Or do you want to tell me all the colleges are racist too?
