It seems that Transformers 2, starring Shia Lebouf and Megan Fox, are fixing up a lot of speculations about the movie being racist. There are two twin robots in the movie named Skids and Mudflap which people are portraying as the “black robots”. One because they are “black voiced” and because of the way they are presented. Skids literaly has an old school gold tooth. Also they are some lines that are quoted which may have you believing this. Instead of a block- buster,some people call it a black-buster. You might say those people are just being naive but you be the judge.

Questioned Acts and Quotes from Transforemers: Revenge of The Fallen

1. The two twins seem to argue and fight during inappropriate situations throughout the movie. Also refered to as “black people don’t know how to act in public”. Or should I say robots…

2. When Shia Lebouf asks the twins can they read ancient glyphs. they say ” Read?  Nuh-uh.No, we don’t really do much readin.’ ”

3. When they transform from robots they are racing cars. Some robots aren’t concerned about the safety of their loved ones..
