Prejudices in Film

Here's a thoughtful look at stupid prejudices in movies, which also lap over into television.

I'm an oddball; I'm more interested in seeing a movie with a mixed cast, and with a non-white and/or non-male lead, and I like watching white boys get butchered by monsters while the girl is setting up for a kill.  But mostly, if I want that kind of entertainment, either I write my own or look to my friends.  Hollywood isn't interested in my bitty little corner of the market.

I so, so want crowdfunding to catch on with indie film.
