Don Cheadle: Not An Idiot

Shockingly enough, despite being an actor in left-leaning Hollywood and black -- two reasons for him to take the very easy path of condemning George Zimmerman without facts -- he actually... castigates NBC and the media's narrative generally.

He makes a sharp point to those in the media who feel they need to "help" a story along:

"Truth does not need 'help.'"

My friend steve_in_hb has been telling me for some time that The Guard is a very funny movie. I think Cheadle's more an important co-star in it than star (Brandon Gleason, originally from Braveheart, is the main character), but either way, I'm told it's good.

The Guard is kinda kwirky and original. It's certainly not a typical "odd couple cop flick" like 48 Hours.

The Guard will have you hooked withing the first 3 minutes. You'll say, "Oooh, now this is different."

Posted by: soothsayer at April 05, 2012 03:03 PM (jUytm)

21 He's earned my respect. Also, I think he has the foresight to see that getting the "black community" aggravated by false information will inevitably wind up causing riots when Zimmerman is not hanged, which will then actually hurt black people and cause further deterioration to race relations.

I disagree. This is a VERY easy one to be right about. The facts are in the open and pretty much cut and dried. You have the unedited call and then the NBC edit. The excision of the dispatcher's question about the suspect's ethnicity changes the entire slant of Zimmerman's response.

Posted by: EC at April 05, 2012 03:04 PM (GQ8sn)

24 something like 75% of people polled say that Zimmerman should be arrested and charged.

So it is hard to swim against that stream.

And of course virtually everyone he knows thinks Zimmerman should be locked in jail for murder.

I think, perhaps a little more accurately, this is an easy one to get right- but it's hard to speak up for what's right.

He could have been much more low-key in his comments, and still been "right," but it wouldn't have been as noteworthy. With a very public rant on Twitter, he made a very public issue of it.

It's something that should be honored (for what it is, I'm not say he's some great Civil Rights Hero), and supported.

Not the court of public opinion.

We shouldn't be surprised or shocked when Cheadle comes out in support of this.

And he was early in a spree of black dudes doing British accents so it was still kind of fun and unusual to see. Kinda been done to death now.

There's that one black guy who'd been in a lot of movies lately. He's actually british, though, I think. He was in the Loser's.

UK has enough good black actors now that hiring black Americans to do fake brit accents is probably not necessary anymore.

61 I agree with ace. Cheadle did a good thing to speak out, especially being surrounded by Hollyweird airheads and libs (presumably - I don't know where he lives or hangs out). It means he's actually taken time to look into the issue, which is more than one can say for lots of airheads in the general population.

And let's face it, his being black doesn't hurt.

I'm echoing Ace here, but to me that makes it all the more commendable that he's speaking out (a) for justice, whatever that turns out to be; and (b) pointing out that all this race-baiting is dangerous.

I'm almost glad he doesn't turn out to be conservative - then the jerks on the left could write him off all the more easily.

123 Didn't like him in Out of Sight. For one that movie has Cheedle constantly calling his underling "white boy" in the exact same tone as the n-word.

In my experience "white boy" is typically used with exact same demeaning racial hatred as the n-word. And Out of Sight celebrated that usage.

Nobody uses "honky". A few might use "cracker". But "white boy" is by far the #1 racial epithet used by blacks to insult and demean whites.

"You got a problem, white boy?" is not a question you want to hear. Nothing good is gonna come next.

Not openly/explicitly, but yes.

They'd rather just circular-file the whole incident (especially now that the damage is done). What Cheadle did was blow a hole in that tactic. He's, to some extent, urging them to do what they can to undo the damage. Yes, for a Hollywood leftist (especially a black one) that's a big step and should be commended.

185 Even if they are gorgeous, trunks would still look better

Yeah, outside of actual competition swimming, speedos look ridiculous. And I think most competition swimmers are going to the full body suits now.

I think it was PJ O'Rourke who said the larger the German businessman, the smaller the German swimsuit.

Well, he did say that, while he doesn't hate the Right, that he's not a 'new recruit.' Two more points for forthrightness.

202 I'm with ace on this one. Yeah, its sad that our society is so f'ed up that just doing what is right is seen as deserving praise, but he didn't have to say a word, just sit quiet and count his Hollyweird cash. As it is now, he may have harmed his career by simply saying the truth. Kinda brave in my book.

214 Maddog. Those are still better than what I ended up with when I googled Firth and speedo. Did you know there are entire gay forums dedicated to men in speedos? I'm surprised that nyc freak hasn't linked to them. I'm still grossed out on my own.

There's an item on Time magazine asking Nikki Haley an awful quesiton about how she would tip a Sikh cab driver. But not nearly as awful as how Haley answers the question about how Romney can close the "gap" with female voters: Romney will rely on his wife's appeal.

Nothing about policy or principle, or the fact that married women prefer the GOP.

Ugh.

I agree. Cheadle is the kind of lefty I could co-exist with. Apparently, facts and truth are something that matter to him so I believe we could at least have a civil dialogue and coexist together. The other kind -bat-shit crazy, fact averse, win at all costs lefty? No. I want them destroyed because they have made it obvious that there is no living in peace with them. One side or the other goes. It's just a matter of time.

I'm 'manofaiki' there. As you can see, one of them has started posting the same post, claiming Ed Primeau has silenced all debate about who that is screaming on that 911 tape. He says it can't be Zimmerman, that that this is a 'young man' screaming. He's 95% sure it's not Zimmerman.

Has anybody found any info on the claims Primeau is making?

Posted by: swlip at April 05, 2012 05:03 PM (iTL9G)

232 Interesting comment, "Truth does not need help." It reminds me of a story in the Old Testament where the Israelis (am I allowed to call them Jews?) are moving their most treasure spiritual article, the Ark of the Covenant, on a team of oxen. The oxen stumble and a guy named Uzzah reaches out to keep the Ark from falling. He gets fried instantly like those people in "Raiders".

It's the same case here: truth (the Ark) doesn't need help. In fact, help is very, very harmful.
