In a cultural debate some years ago, a Black activist decrying Jewish control of movie studios pointed out all the scary, evil Black bad guys in popular cinema, but couldn’t recall any who were Jewish. (I wish I could remember the names and dates, but alas…)
Blacks do come off disproportionately badly in their film and TV depictions, but I can think of a couple of Jewish heavies. Law & Order in particular is very even-handed in showing bad guys from all across society’s spectrum. Here are some Jewish heavies off the top of my head:
BUGSY–most of the gangters in the film
MO’ BETTER BLUES–the club owner
Any others? Honest, I’m not using this as fodder for any kind of racist or antisemetic agenda.
