Lilly Singh's Late-Night Show Is No Victory for All Women of Color
From Lilly Singh to Awkwafina, entertainers of color continue to build platforms for themselves at the expense of Blackness.

Lilly Singh's LateNight Show Is No Victory for All Women of Color

NBC
In this op-ed writer Tayo Bero explains why she believes Lilly Singh's move to late-night raises questions about being awarded for performing blackness as comedy.
When former YouTube star Lilly Singh debuted her new late-night television show last week, the show garnered mostly positive responses with early critics calling it “promising,” despite a few stumbles. Lilly herself gushed about all the girl power and support she felt from fans and celebrity friends alike in the lead-up to the premiere A Little Late With Lilly Singh. And although Lilly is being erroneously credited as the first woman of color to host a late-night talk show (Wanda Sykes and Mo’Nique are two Black comedians who have both done so nearly a decade before), the first episode featured an impressive lineup of major celebrities from The Office’s Rainn Wilson to Mindy Kaling.

But when I watched it, something about Lilly’s performance felt eerily reminiscent of her old YouTube days. In one of the show's first sketches, there is a rap break in which Lilly declares “I’m gonna throw some melanin up in your late-night” and, “I ain’t talking about Donald unless his last name is Glover.”


So why does this matter? It’s because Lilly falls into a category of non-Black people of color in entertainment who have built massive followings often by mimicking Black culture and leaning heavily into Black stereotypes. If you’re not familiar with her early work, a typical Lilly Singh YouTube video could feature anything from satirical takes on popular culture, to parodies of South Asian culture and then later on, sketches with celebrity friends. And in many of these videos, Lilly can be found in baggy clothes, her hair cornrowed, with the occasional backward facing cap and flashy jewelry to boot.

On Wednesday, the ASA also upheld complaints about a television advert for computer firm PC Specialist.

The advert featured three men performing different tech-related tasks such as coding or producing music.

Eight viewers complained that it implied only men were interested in technology and computers.

The ban on adverts featuring "harmful gender stereotypes" came into force in June 2019

To be fair, that is pretty patronising...

That is covered in sarcasm I hope otherwise every advert gonna need both sexes (or all) and all races to get a pass
Not really, I'm talking about the ad in your link. What were they thinking calling her a "girl boss"? Is that not really patronising?

It's like Ricky Gervais said: "If ISIS started a streaming service you'd all call your agents immediately"

They're happy to do whatever it takes to get their piece of the pie then begin virtue signalling.

Thing is....white people really don't care. This whole "ha ha I'm a POC suckit whitey" mentality is so dumb. White people watch what films entertain them. White people will watch what talk shows entertain them. Bar a few individual cases we really don't give two fucks who presents what the only question is: Is it good???

But they push this this imaginary agenda THEY HAVE CREATED!!!!

If you just landed on planet earth and turned on the TV you'd think no POC ever held a talk TV show or had a serialisation (Hi Oprah, Hi Fresh Prince) and that white people were evil personified.

They're all hypocrites. I bet half (at least) of this Singh's YouTube subs and viewers were white.

Meanwhile back in LIlys motherland (India) pre pubescent girls are being married to dirty old men in arranged sham marriages and cast system exists that pretty much relegated some to slavery. But hey....those evil white people and their...... cultural appropriation via appreciation of your talk show....what a sinister bunch they are......(How's that big fat pay check btw?)

It's the current year 2020 and my new resolution is to ignore every one of these fuckin cretins, I heard them bleating on about some award show being too white this past week because Joker was scooping too many awards and nominations... fuck off you insufferable dicks, we've had years of listening to this shit now and all the participation oscars and globes being handed out because some non-white person directed or acted in it.

Then there were cunts calling into LBC acting we lived in Nazi Germany and there was never a single black person on TV or in movies ever... whatever cunts, we live in white majority countries and they seem amazed that the majority of people on their TV screens are white, like it would be any different in any other culture or country.

This shit had it's time and it was around the same year this thread started.

"Oscars so white" is incorrect in the modern era.

Since 2000:

14% of best actor nominees have been black. (rising to almost 15% if you include Rami Malek. I'm not sure how north African is usually classed by people who are bothered about race).

4% had other non-white origins.

Only 5% of best actresses nominees for the same period have black heritage.

However other non-white backgrounds are much better represented than they are for men. 7%, (if you include Penelope Cruz who would be considered white in Europe, but maybe Hispanic in the US?).

8% of supporting actor nominees had a black heritage. 5% had other non-white origins.

15% of best supporting actresses had a black ethnic origin. 7% had other non-white origins.

It falls down a bit once you get to director. 3% with black origins, (poor, but still better represented than women).

11% have other non-white backgrounds. However, this is mainly Ang Lee and a few Latin/spanish directors.

The other technical awards are probably more "white", but I can't be bothered to check.


Now, this was just a quick and unscientific review. I didn't check to see if anyone was 20% cherokee or what have you, I also didn't include Jewish people, but I did include Spanish nationals as Hispanic while ignoring other Mediterranean backgrounds altogether.

Now I don't believe in race as a concept, nor do I care about people's ethnic origins. For those that do however, it would appear black actors are statistically over-represented, while other ethnicities are under-represented.

My main takeaway however, is how often the same faces show up, regardless of race. The same people are nominated time after time, regardless of whether they are actually one of the 5 best performances that year.

I would say that there are clearly representation issues in the film industry.

But that's not just to do with race. Gender is an issue in direction and other technical roles, class is a big issue in the UK, and a lack of imagination and aversion to risk in general means we get the same faces in the same stories time and again.

Amen. Enoughs enough and I think people are starting to wake up to the bullshit.

Politics needs to stay out of entertainment. Best actor. Best director. Best story. Best effects. Best whatever should be based on merit. End of.

Except in the vast majority of cases none of them can truly be decided on merit, because with the exception of best effects, all of those categories are purely subjective opinion. It's like saying whoever is the better fighter should be given the round based on merit, end of. Great, but some people favour pressure fighters over counterpunchers, some appreciate volume while others appreciate damage, etc etc.

'Straya, cunt.
Go have a satisfying discussion with the brains trust in the Trump thread then, since you love sucking their dicks so much. I'm sure you'll get a really good conversation out of them. :thumbsup

:rofl Fuck’s sake, you’re a fucking imbecile, then you go demanding that others answer your pathetically veiled loaded questions, this here is a prime example why most posters don’t want to engage with you, fuckhead.
