These people were trampled by the white man, David Letterman and Johnny Depp say — exploited. Johnny Depp’s hoping he’s done a fine representation of the native American character, to have the character fleshed out beyond the humiliating side-kick role for which Tonto’s traditionally known.
Johnny Depp says he spent time with native Americans on their reservations and got their approval. Go see the movie, it’s wildly entertaining says David Letterman. There’s a slap-sticky clip where this ‘noble’ version of Tonto outsmarts a white man as they ride the top of a train. I don’t recall the exact choreography, but it’s something like Tonto ducks and the white man gets it. Wow.
Do I have to tell you about the 800 lb gorilla? These people who have been trampled, exploited by the white man, can’t even get a role playing one of themselves. Hm!
Really. How do David Letterman and Johnny Depp talk about how evolved this role is with straight faces?
Or is it that Johnny Depp is one of the thousands of Americans claiming to be that exotica called “a quarter part Cherokee?” Bahahaha!
Oh and what’s up with that brown pin-striped suit JD wears in every photograph he’s in lately?
I’d respect you more if you didn’t talk about all that nobility crap, and just took your money and went home.
