Thoughts on this clip Sup Forums? It aired in 2007 with no controversy on one of the greatest shows of all time and was very popular at the time

What would happen if it aired today?
Would it be banned in some countries that ban hate speech?

THEY ARE UNASHAMED TO BRAG ABOUT IT: http://www.snopes.com/2015/06/25/luke-massie-smith/

Your home in ashes, your starving children strewn about you half-dead and sobbing, packs of vicious wild dogs roaming the streets of once-happy American suburbs feeding off the weak, the cities burning on the horizon and the ground rumbling underfoot from the Chinese tanks out enforcing the new government's mandatory curfew.

And always, through the din of screams and smoke and jackboots marching in unison, above it all you hear Obama laughing. It's been three weeks since you've had anything but pages torn from the family bible to eat. Your feet ache; your shoes have long ago been stolen by roving gangs of armed minorities and the tattered strips of the American flag you've bound them in do little to stop the cold, let alone the blisters.

THEY STABBED INNOCENTS IN SACRAMENTO, AND WERE KNOWN TO THREATEN OTHERS WITH KNIVES:

Just last June Ms. Gratz filed a report with Detroit police accusing Luke Massie, national chairman of the activist group By Any Means Necessary, of displaying a knife during a heated confrontation outside a state civil rights meeting. "It was one of several attempts to either intimidate me or attack my character," she said yesterday in an interview after a speech she gave at the National Association of Scholars meeting in Boston. She said Mr. Massie had a knife in his right pants pocket and toyed with it, pulling it halfway out of his pants but not drawing its blade. Mr. Massie denies the allegation.

Eh, Phil is supposed to be the villain. Tony was actually pretty indifferent about Vito's faggotry.

Isaiah Clark

Yea i agree, if it happened in "current year" The Sopranos would have a more diverse cast and Phil would be the token evil old fashioned white male and the only one who wanted to kill Vito. (A lot of mobsters on both sides wanted him dead)

I love the Sopranos, but for some reason whenever I re-watch it I just get bored by the second or third season. I think I've seen the older episodes too many times to ever really enjoy them again, I need to just read up on the plot and start at the 4th season or something. It just doesn't have a lot of rewatchability for me.

Parker Edwards

It did though, it made it seem like all the blacks were these deep characters with tragic lives and they were all suave gangsters. Reality is that most niggers are just criminals because they think it's cool, and that they aren't smart about it at all, hence the reason most of them end up in prison.

The Wire nigger: "If we shoot him, we can weaken their leadership and make a move on their street with our new product, thus capturing the market and expanding our business."

Real nigger: "Yo dis foo standin on my corna wearin red Imma pop his ass"

People say The Wire was great because it was so realistic...it's not at all.

Slavery movies portray slaves as former kangs oppressed by the evil whitey. In the sopranos not just Phil but most of the likable characters supported murdering vito just because he was gay

You missed out on Dead Wood. Season 2 eps. 10, "Advances, None Miraculous" has a black stable keeper who was derelict is his job that resulted in a boy getting trampled to death by a horse, gets tarred in the middle of the road by an angry white mob.

"Jungle fucking niggers" is what the leader of the mob yells right before the mob starts searching for the black guy.

The black guy who gets tarred was on the show Oz years ago, and the
"Jungle Fucking Niggers" guy is currently on Orange is The New Black

ok, lets ignore the ideology. the acting was bad and natural character development didn't exist. the plot was often circular and went nowhere for episodes on end until they just condense it altogether including the character development. the biggest reason the wire gets any sort of acknowledgement is that people seem to think it's based on real people and events. it's not. it may have been at one point when drawing it up, but these are purely fictional characters and scenarios that have no connection with or semblance of the real life people they were supposedly based on

Paulie was great but he was really whiny a lot of the time, and it was pretty funny, but I also have to factor in how badass they are into the equation, and I think Sil would have wrecked Paulie's world. Hell, a lot of the plotlines are how Paulie is a little backstabber or whiny bitch. Silvio is just a bad motherfucker.

David Simon, the show's creator, is literally a Jew who supports Black Lives Matter.

But years before all of that, when I would still proudly call myself a liberal, I preferred The Sopranos to The Wire.

It's hard to compare the two shows because they're both excellent, but The Sopranos always just edged out The Wire in my mind for some reason, even though I decided to watch The Wire twice and not The Sopranos yet.

That may be the issue. The Wire is more about "the system" rather than the development of complicated people. The Wire does make use of complicated people, and I'm sure that as a journalist in Boston, David Simon saw these people; but the characters are kind of like a journalist's schetch. For example, McNulty is the drunk, serial-philandering cop stereotype.

Cooper Ramirez

It's ok.

Character development adds depth to drama by adding layers and multiple viewpoints and conflicts interpersonal and internal and global.

It's something Sopranos did particularly well, The Wire only to a degree.

When the drama isn't forcing a character to grow or development audiences detach and emotionally remove their investment from the character- as what's happened in some arcs of Game of Thrones later seasons.

McNulty never really changed, but seemingly, he was the main character. He bucked the system from beginning to in, and that's all you can really say about him.

The Wire was brilliantly written, and it's Obama's favorite show (seriously). The sad thing is though, nothing really changes except, maybe with Marlo, the younger generation becomes more nihilistic.

The fact that none of the characters really react to what they're experiencing as things degrade is a major drawback to me.

"Remember that in the book, Mario Puzo's version of this meeting isn't as racist. Puzo emphasizes that the other mobsters are annoyed by the racist rant. Coppola's cut of this scene makes it appear as if the entire commission is on board with destroying the black community. Deviates from Puzo's story."

thank god the movie changed that because that's fucking retarded. Why would the mobsters be upset about racism towards nignogs when they are criminals that intentionally and proudly deviate from societal morals and their very organization disallows anyone that's not a pureblooded italian to join?

Logan Sanders
Logan Sanders

Why would the mobsters be upset about racism towards nignogs
Because it's a self-serving rationalization?

They agree that dealing drugs is likely to damage their communities. They don't see themselves as bad people, just as realists about human nature. They want to make their money in a way that leaves the community strong and healthy.

But this one guy justifies himself by saying, "Oh, the blacks are animals anyway. No matter how much we contribute to their depravity doesn't matter." If you're going to have black people living in your city, and you care about the city, you still want them to be the best-behaved, most upstanding, sober, and respectable black people you can have them be, no matter what your opinion of black people.

His attitude isn't reasonable. It's bullshit.
