Simpsons' Actor Blasts Producers for No Longer Allowing White Actors to Voice POC Characters
One of the multitude of ways we've solved racism this year is by shaming white actors for voicing non-white cartoon characters. Yes, in order to make a serious statement on police brutality in the wake of George Floyd, we are now judging actors by the color of their skin and not the content of their funny voices (see THE WHITE GUY WHO DOES THE VOICE OF CLEVELAND ON "FAMILY GUY" QUIT, AND I GUESS THAT MEANS WE'VE CURED RACISM and HANK AZARIA: STEPPING ASIDE FROM APU IS "THE RIGHT THING TO DO"). One actor who thinks this is silly is Harry Shearer, who has been with The Simpsons since 1989 and up until recently was the voice of Dr. Hibbert. You know, one of the black guys. As opposed to all the yellow guys. Which isn't an asian thing. It's just the dominate skin pigment in Springfield.
Shearer says this goes against his one basic rule of acting:
I have a very simple belief about acting. The job of the actor is to play someone who they are not. That's the gig, that's the job description.
You would think so, huh? Not to mention I can't be the only one who, even after watching The Simpsons since the 80s (literally), can identify who does what character. I was even shocked to find out that legendary rock icon Derek Smalls was this voice of this guy:
The Simpsons s25e04 Dr. Hibbertyoutu.be
I'm not going to pretend to be as religious of a The Simpsons watcher as I once was. The last laugh out loud episode I remember is when they made fun of the 2008 primaries and the first ten minutes almost killed me. At the end of the day, who does what voice doesn't affect my life. Also as Shearer said, it's not like he's losing any money by doing one less voice.
I just think it's silly that whenever we're told it's time for another "national conversation on race," before we introduce ourselves to each other to start said conversation, leftists (particularly in the entertainment industry) have already shocked and awed us with a campaign of meaningless symbolism, publicity stunts, and other pandering. It's hard to have a conversation about solving what ails our country when you're busy rolling your eyes at the people dominating the conversation.
Hiring a black guy to imitate a voice created by a white guy for the character of a black guy doesn't actual solve anything. Other than make the white executives whose decision it was revel in the smell of their own farts.
