As a black comedy, “Night School” is required to be diverse, but it still gets some MAGA racism and hate in the dialogue, thanks to the movie's star, Kevin Hart, as well as a number of other liberal script writers involved in the project, including Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells, Matthew Kellard, Nicholas Stoller, and John Hamburg.
The comedy stars Hart, as and Tiffany Haddish in the lead roles. Haddish’s character, Carrie, as a high school teacher in movie is proof of this. Her students are certainly a diverse group of people, but as is typical of uneducated blacks who talk in Ebonics, there is a certain amount of distain for people who are white who learned how to speak English correctly.
Haddish’s character, since she represents the same ghetto illiteracy that is common in black comedies, does not seem to like white high school students who sound like they are smarter, even though she claims to have taken master’s degree courses.
Haddish's character does not like, Mila, played by Anne Winters, We don't know why. What we do know is that she doesn't speak Ebonic and is attractive. That's probably enough, so she insults her in front of the class:
“Cool. Look at you all Makin America Great Again. Bitch.”
Being inclusive and diverse for a black comedy presents a problem. You want to include a young white female actor, but what happens if she is sounds a lot smarter than the black teacher. In this case she does. This puts Carrie at a disadvantage. To elevate herself, she insults her because she is white. This is common for blacks, who have a hierarchy that they must maintain.
Her statement is racist because she assumes that because she is white, she voted for Trump. The implication is that if you are black, like Haddish, you didn’t vote for Trump, and you are really not free to vote however you want to vote. Many blacks think this way.
It implies people think and act according to how they look. While it may be true, this is really the same as police profiling a young black man an because of the color of his skin or how he is dressed. Now we see blacks and liberal whites adopting the same thinking. It’s attempt at humor, but it’s still racist.
Wasn't Martin Luther King Jr.'s message for us to be all about the content of character, not the color of one's skin? In Hollywood, that only goes so far.
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was supposed to be all about giving people to vote their conscience, and be free to not vote according to your race, or a particular party. In reality, Democrats have their own Voting Rights Act, which says if you are black, you need to tow the line, and not rock the boat. Do what people who look like you do.
The script for this movie was a collaboration of half a dozen talented people. But there is no doubt that there is liberal, anti-Trump, anti-conservative influence here.
Two of the writers, Nicholas Stoller and John Hamburg, are higher level writer / directors in Hollywood.
Nicholas Stoller is an English-American screenwriter and director, who is known best for directing the 2008 comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and writing/directing its 2010 spin-off/sequel, Get Him to the Greek. He also wrote The Muppets and directed the Seth Rogen comedy, Neighbors. He is a frequent creative partner of Jason Segel.
John Hamburg is a writer and director, also known for Little Fockers (2010), Why Him? (2016) and I Love You, Man (2009).
The movie is chock full of racist black stereotypes, including:
Young black males don’t graduate from high school.
Graduating from high school and going on to get a college degree is a white thing.
Test taking is skewed towards whites, thus they are racist.
Black males are insecure and can’t let their significant others know that they didn’t graduate from high school, or college.
Graduating from high school is an incredible accomplishment for most black males, because they grow up not caring about educating themselves because of a black culture that discourages learning and advancement in education in general.
Blacks don’t know the different between getting a diploma and getting a GED.
There are other inconsistencies:
Kevin is friends with a manager (happens to be white) at a brokerage firm. It’s not clear how a manager at a brokerage firm would be friends with a man who is a high school drop out. They have this conversation:
“I’m not talking about going to school, I’m talking about getting my GED. That’s different. To get my GED, all I have to do it go to the school and charm the principal, get what I want and get my GED.”
The manager says if he gets his GED, he could probably hook him up with a job as a financial analyst. What’s wrong with this? He’s not being honest. Just having a GED is not enough to get a job as a financial analyst at a brokerage firm. Even if you have a college degree, you may not be qualified to be a financial analyst at a brokerage firm.
This is what white liberals do all the time. They are dishonest with blacks because they don’t think they can handle the truth. So they treat them like victims. It would hurt your feelings for you to know that I would never hire you because you are probably not going to get a college degree any time soon, so I will just lie to you to make you feel better.
Another problem with the movie is that throughout, Haddish and Hart use ghetto English and don’t speak correctly. This happens in a lot of black movies to make other blacks feel better about not being about to speak English correctly, and by appealing to a lower education level, they can make more money.
This movie is more tragic than comedic. It’s tragic that Hollywood has fallen to such a level that white liberals have not only accepted a low level of educational achievement for blacks, they make fun of it. It’s humorous that blacks like Hart can’t achieve scholastically, or should be completely thrilled that they can graduate from high school. What should we do about it? We should insult whites who speak better English than we do and look like they might vote for Trump.
