Is Sacha Baron Cohen Racist?
Actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is best know for his quirky, often garish character creations like Bruno, Ali G, and, of course, Borat. He’s also known for his insufferable moralizing and apparent disdain for conservatism. How ironic, then, that social justice advocacy groups are push for his latest project, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’, to be excluded from contention for Hollywood’s most prestigious awards. Why? These groups allege the film is racist. So, is this just another disproportionate reaction from activists? Or is the film actually, you know…racist? More from Daisy Cousens.
