I first began THE
UNFAIR RACIAL CLICHÉ ALERT back in 1998 at the
old geocities site, I was criticized for creating
a lie. My ALERT said simply:
had my many detractors at the time who said things like:
"It's your imagination."
"You need to get a life."
The latest one I've heard is
man I'm done! Brothers never survive these things!"
So I challenged my critics to go out and see 5 Horror/Thriller movies: any five, their choice. All I asked is that the movie have minorities in the cast (not some quick walk on or someone in the background of a crowd scene). So these fellow fans of horror went out. They came back with a few movie titles where the THE RACIAL CLICHÉ ALERT did not apply, and in fairness I list those films here. But they also came back with an overwhelming number of movies where the "rule" did apply, and they were amazed.
From then on, I added the words UNFAIR to THE RACIAL CLICHÉ ALERT. The UNFAIR RACIAL CLICHÉ ALERT specifically applies to movies made or backed by Hollywood, as I have not seen this "Rule Of Death" appear so consistently in Independent movies or movies made outside of the United States.

reason for this is simple. With every new Horror/Thriller movie coming out, the list
keeps growing. I used to post it only where applicable to the movies reviewed,
but now the list is too long. It needs its own place. I welcome any who
challenge the ALERT to offer me movie titles that contradict this
98 Coincidences and Counting!
