In the first Transformers, Jazz was a jive-talking, breakdancing robot and the first Autobot to die. Luckily, the sequel promises even more urban flavor.
There are two robots in the film called Mudflap and Skids, and despite being red and green, respectively, they are voiced in a way that clearly designates them to be the “black” robots. Also, Skids has a gold front tooth (no, I’m serious) and both cannot read.
Oh sure, you put a grill on a white transformer and it’s fine, but you put one on a black robot, and then imply that he’s illiterate and make him breakdance and suddenly it’s racist. Maybe you’re the racist, ever thought of that?
Shia LaBeouf’s college dorm room is outfitted with a gigantic poster of Bay’s own Bad Boys 2. Just in case you miss it the first time it comes up, it receives its own loving close-up when Shia begins writing an equation on it later in the film.
See? Bad Boys 2. Michael Bay movie. Starring black people. Clearly he’s proud of it. Boom.
One hot chick is revealed to be a Transformer, and naturally, we discover this when a mechanical tail comes out the back of her thin blue panties. [Movieline]
Look, you sold, me, okay? I’ll see the movie. If my 13-year-old dick had an id, and was racist, it’d be named Michael Bay. In related news, Mudflap and Skids would be good nicknames for your sisters.
