Meet Norbit sign now

This petition is to serve as a boycott, and notice to the producers of the new Eddie Murphy movie Meet Norbit (Dreamworks, SKG). I am disgusted and horrified at this depiction and demonization of dark-skinned women, particularly overweight women in 2007. In this movie, Norbit, played by Eddie Murphy, has been subjected to a series of mishaps in his short life. He is engaged to a "boisterous, aggressive, rude, repulsive, crude character" that happens to be dark-skinned with prominent African features, played by Mr. Murphy. Coincidentally, Murphy's character is saved by a very thin, bi-racial woman with European features (Thandie Newton) which sends a clear message that white or almost white women will rescue black men from the perils of dark-skinned African women. Though I am long-time fan of Eddie Murphy, his preference for almost white women has not gone unnoticed. As a human being, Mr. Murphy, has every right to choose whom he dates, falls in love with, and marries; male, female or transgendered.







As a veteran in the entertainment industry, and as a father, Mr. Murphy should more sensitive in the images that he chooses, and cognizant that life, does in fact imitate art. I have no doubt that the imagery and messages in this movie will have disastrous effects on the self-esteem of African American woman, particularly the obese in this country. This LATEST demonization of the black woman speaks to a deep self-hatred that Mr. Murphy has for himself and for dark-skinned women.







I am asking for your support in this online petition that will be forwarded to Dreamworks, SKG entertainment, SKG before the release of this modern day buffoonery. We welcome your comments of support and or/opposition.







Thank you.

    Discriminating against obese people is one of the most prevelant and accepted type of discrimination and its needs to be stopped. This movie suggests that being overweight is completely undesirable.
