Hollywood has released a trailor of a reportedly upcoming film called “Planet of the Arabs” which has claimed unpopular comments such as “Even more racist than NY Post”

The trailer-esque montage spectacle of Hollywood’s relentless vilification and dehumanization of Arabs and Muslims, inspired by the book “Real Bad Arabs” by Dr. Jack Shaheen.

Out of 1000 films that have Arab & Muslim characters (from the year 1896 to 2000) 12 were postive depictions, 52 were even handed and the rest of the 900 or so were negative.
