Mourning John Hughes at SBPDL


There was no post yesterday as SBPDL mourns the loss of visionary movie director John Hughes, who we profiled last month as #317 on Stuff Black People Don’t Like.

A new post will be forthcoming tonight, but for now, we mourn the loss of John Hughes and his movies, which will forever be included in Stuff Black People Don’t Like.

His films will long be remembered by white people everywhere as they canonize a time, place and people that is gone forever. We now live in the Age of Obama, and everything before his magnificent reign is but a memory.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like will always include The Breakfast Club, Uncle Buck, Home Alone, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Weird Science and John Hughes Movies, because they exist as a testament to the 1980s and a world seemingly untouched by Black people and devoid of them entirely.
Rest in Peace, John.

    A true genius. The type of chemistry he put together will never be duplicated or matched again. I often wondered what happened to him. The writing, character developement and casting, music and humor. I wouldn't call it teenage waste land. It was the best time in the world to be young. I think we are longing for this time.

    "It was the best time in the world to be young"Yup, Back in the days when it was still 'cool' to be white. Nowdays you gotta have a gun and saggy pants to be 'cool'.

  3. Nonsense! Your blog is great, but his movies are degenerate like everything else from the '80's.IFA

  4. I have to disagree. John Hughes directed movies that are a glimpse into the halcyon days of Pre-Obama America.Go watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles or The Great Outdoors.

    I don't understand 80s nostalgia.

    "I don't understand 80s nostalgia"Perhaps because you accept the current Hollywood mentality that glorifys gangsters and other degenerates as the greatest addition to our culture since sliced bread.

  7. SBPDL,Did John Hughes's movies feature classical music? Did they have a high moral code similar to pre-1960's movies? Just because they are from the pre-Obama days doesn't mean they are "kosher". Indeed, it is those days that harbinged Obama's America. One can see the rut of America even back in the post-WWI era. You have an apparent fascination with the '80's. To me, it was a period of utter degeneracy only leavened by today's greater malaise; as today's sickness will be less than that which will occur in yet another decade.Regardless, your site is witty and wonderful. Bravo,IFA

    IFA,Besides the movies and corny music. The 80's was also a great age for science and technology. Including the integrated circuits that power the very computer that you 'surf' the Internet (also born in the 80's). Back in the 80's these technologies were also manufactured here. Nowdays people think that these technologies come from Asia. They did not, they came from here.

  9. Anonymous,The spirit of the '80's was moribund. To so blithely brush away the "music" of that era as "corny" does you no justice. The music of that era was sick: unmitigatedly decadent and grotesque. The anachronistic technological advancements notwithstanding, the soul of the Man of the '80's was rotten as was his decade of fame; or rather, infamy. As to Asia and technological advancements, Asia has never produced anything novel during this past century. Nordics have – and will continue to have – a monopoly on creativity as its a racial trait unshared by Yellows. The only thing the latter group can do is to imitate.Thank you,IFA

    IFA,Dude you are so over the top with your well written but disturbing comments on here. I truly don't know how to respond. I enjoyed reading them.I'll bet my eyes are more blue than yours. LOL!Your Welcome,Anonymous

    The damn hippies ruined everything with their free love and negro humping. Those BASTARDS!

  12. Anon.,When you have nothing productive to say you don't attempt to disrespect your opponent. All it does is show others that you are puerile, petty, and low. Moreover, the fact that you bring your (irrelevant) blue eyes into the matter does not help your case, but rather, puts your people in a bad light. You have blue eyes and you must be held accountable to a higher code than others. Shame on you,IFA

    IFA,I meant no disrespect, it was a joke. 😉 However… If you think my Nordicness holds me to a higher code, that implies that others be held to a lower code. On that point I disagree. I think everyone should be held to the same 'code'.For instance, say if I was to take a test for admission to college and by some chance score very well (what are the odds of that) I should be guaranteed a spot at a HWCU. BTW, HWCU stands for 'Historically White Colleges and Universities'.See it's all in good fun! Stop being so serious all the time.Laters,Anonymous

    Why do certain white people always connect the love or fascination of gangster and gangster mentality to black people, when films like Scarface (the original), the Godfather, Goodfellas, or even movies like Bonny and Clyde and the Wild Bunch made icons of lawless, reprehensible characters? Shows like the Sopranos are always considered great television. Even the remake of 3:10 to Yuma opted to change the story to make the bad guy seem cool, yet people always want to allude to Black people love lawlessness. If we do, then we certainly got it from this culture.
