Re: Do You Think My Producer Was Racist - SCRIPTFELLA
Every decision in Hollywood is racist, sexist and many other things driven by the desire to make money. At least these people told you directly. Usually it's smoke and mirrors. That's great, love your slave script, but can we get Tom Cruise to star in it instead of Denzel? Is that better or worse?
I personally think the "is an actor allowed to play this part" debates just as upsetting as saying we can't have a black James Bond. Both are awful takes.
This is the real world. I believe in the Star Trek future, but I also believe the real fires are so bright that we need to focus on them. This case has a very easy solution. WALK AWAY FROM THE PROJECT.
