The main rule in this area is to stay away from racist comments or attacks. But, in the same respect, this is a place to state your thoughts and ideas on racial profiling, whatever they might be.

21 In the February issue of Elle UK, Natalie Portman says, "I've always tried to stay away from playing Jews." Then she adds, "I get like 20 Holocaust scripts a month, but I hate the genre." Because the entire interview is not online, I am going to give Portman the benefit of the doubt. I don't think she's a self-loather who doesn't want movie audiences to know she's Jewish (though she benefits from looks that are not stereotypically Semitic—her nose is small, her hair is straight). It's more that she's lamenting the lack of good Jewish roles outside of Holocaust movies. There, she has a point. ... wish-roles

SR: And lets not forget Miz Portman while crowing that she is a Proud Israeli REFUSED to fufill her Military Obligation like every Israeli Man and Woman proudly does....

Sort of reminds me of Jessica "Don't call me Mexican" Alba.
