Laila Lalami: Why Hollywood Owes Me Money

I came across this article on Moorishgirl's blog. It's a bit funny. Click here to read the whole article.

[Why Hollywood Owes Me Money
Laila Lalami
Stereotyping of Arabs and Muslims in American movies is a common practice.
And Jackie Chan’s latest U.S. release, "Operation Condor," is no exception. But
rather than try to raise public awareness by explaining to whomever will listen
that this practice is not only morally wrong but also potentially harmful to a
large American minority, I’d like to ask for royalties.

Yes, royalties......]
