    'American Culture' is predominantly white culture. They are virtually one in the same. Which is what minority activist groups say all the time so IDK why there is sudden disagreement. White, Protestant, Cis, Straight if we are to be more exact. That is precisely why we have so many groups asking for INCLUSION. Or at least equality. If this were not the case why in 2017 are people still arguing over gay rights? Blacks rights? etc?

    With an agenda. To normalize 'others' (which is fine by me. I like Hollywood AA). Of course some say that is to dismantle White Culture. Tear it apart. Do Jews accept homosexuals or just promote them to other cultures? (That is a genuine question - not snarkery)

    Indeed, those "whites" who came from a Catholic culture - e.g., Irish, Italian - were considered minorities and not part of "white" at all. Same thing with Jews.

    Well, Hollywood's agenda is to make money. It has very little, on the whole, with promoting a cultural agenda. On an individual basis, sure, you might find that, but not on the whole.

    Nonsense.

    I do not understand the question. By what do you mean "accept" or "promote"?

    no it's not. One of the most unique aspects of American culture is that it's so diverse.

    Exactly..., and immigrants at that.

    So, the "American Dream" itself was invented by immigrant Jews...

    That is a fascinating documentary, (and no pun intended Spock<)

    The films of the Edison Trust were notoriously harsh towards anything non-WASP, and that also included how immigrants should be regarded.

    Eventually, once the moguls arose, once Hollywood became the center of the American movie production, things changed a great deal from what they were during the Edison era.

    Of course, America and the movies had a long way to go, but it was an essential first step in the right direction and by the 1950s we saw more and more poignant and direct social commentary.



    And part 3

    Hollywood can do more than one thing. It is devoted to making money. It is also devoted to promoting, advancing, protecting and spreading myths about the Left, in every way. Feminism, LGBT, affirmative action, immigration, you name it. Women, blacks, gays and various minorities are now being cast in roles that attempt to change history and reality, just to condition the masses to accept Leftist views. Hollywood has been doing this for a very long time, and it's as obvious as can be.

    Actually both.
