Everyone who's read the script (hasn't everyone, by now?) knows the part is very very small... might be a whole of 2-3 min. of the entire movie.

I never in a million years have would've thought I would hear Bernie Mac's name and Transformers in the same sentence. Oh well, it might me fun. But from the interview I wonder if he knows what he calls being told to "Bernie Mac it" is really just type casting.


It's because he puts his own spin on things and alot of the time don't follow the script and it comes out better then what the writers wrote..
This has absolutly nothing to do with this topic but why Soundwave wearing a diper?

And just so it's not a waisted post... na that's too grose to thank about and of course Bernie Mac don't wear dipers. :lol:

Clever, but it should be Bob the Contructicon.

Close, but no cigar.

What he said wasn't hard to understand at all. For people to claim ignorance to what he was saying is just a shame.

And to the person who said Throw him some KFC..WTF??

On the box, it mentions the popular children's show character Bob the Builder.

I know. He changed Bob the Builder to Bob the Constructicon. I was making a comment about the Constructicon having a human name and one of them is actully named Glen in Japan.

Could someone explain this to me, please? I don't see why it was racist, largely because I don't get the joke. What's KFC got to do with either racism or Bernie Mac?

KFC has nothing to do with Bernie Mac.

It's racist because "kary" is implying that because Bernie is of African American decent, his favorite food must automatically be KFC.

It's a stereotypical misconception that most African Americans love KFC and other fried fatty foods. "Kary"'s comment was intentionally inflamatory and in no way contributed to any sort of intelligent discussion.

Actually to be really racist, KFC is not the African American choice... Now if he would have said throw him a bucket of Churches Chicken, or Popeyes then i could see it.. but not KFC..

Plus I own this shirt, and all my African American friends laugh every time they see it..

I think White people get overly concerned about their comments being racist versus what ethnic people will actually consider racist..

besides most of the racism i have encountered was ethnic on White..and not Vice Versa..

And if you think about it..white people in America are not the majority, from mexico downward its almost totally hispanic, Latino, or whatever..

the US is now only 50% white or caucasian, the rest 50% ethnic, and Canada is 90% white the rest 10% ethnic.. so down south has us beat by a long shot..

Throwing a bucket of KFC is not racist because Bernie Mac has stated serveral Hundred times in interviews and in his stand up comedy that he loves KFC..


Besides I'm italian, we ruled the known world for over a thousand years as Romans,we don't descriminate, we hate all races equally.. smile... :grin:

Come on guys, keep on topic.

Kary probably didn't mean it that way. If so, he knows he should watch his words.
