If all the white people who claim they don’t hate us would ever get together and do something to the whites who claim they hate us, we’d see some action. Talk is cheap, if white people didn’t want to have a South African situation … there’d be none. If white people in America didn’t want segregation, there’d be none … it is the man who allows him to lynch who is never seen.
How do you treat low self-esteem? By doing esteemable things and then saying, “Hey, I did that!” What happens to Williams in this movie? Exactly that. By the end of the film, he doesn’t wisecrack all the time because he doesn’t need to. He no longer thinks he’s the worthless (although bright, fast and funny) sack of crap that got off the plane. In the early scenes, the character’s eyes are opaque. By the end, you can see what he’s thinking.
The Reason Why People Hate Kristen Stewart
The reason, for me at least, is clear. Stewart exhibits a look and energy that can be perceived as masculine. Add to that the fact that she gives interviews in a direct and forthright manner that is lacking in the media trained acquiescence of today’s starlets, I can see why so many people are pissed off. How dare she speak frankly. How dare she be herself. After all, we are all masking parts of ourselves in order to fit a pleasing mould for others. Why shouldn’t she have to do the same? Ultimately, people hate Kristen Stewart because she doesn’t give us an easy fix - a smile, a joke, a generic lie - and supply us with the reminder that conformity is necessary.
