Although I'm down w the revolution. We have to realize that not all cops are bad I mean homie bodied 2 cops and Darren Wilson, George Zimmerman and the dudes who bodied Eric Garner are still breathing... Talk about misguided anger
As a nigga who knows exactly how studios work and the sort of thing that they are concerned with, this shit is common knowledge. In the end, Hollywood studios are concerned with money and money only. It's a fact that historically, movies staring black male leads don't do well overseas and these days the overseas market makes up a BIG portion of the box office. Will Smith is about the ONLY black star who bucks that trend sometimes.
I'd say this is more of an indictment of how blacks are viewed overseas and anything malicious on the part of the study exec. But it does speak to their unwillingness to make art for art's sake and being a slave to capitalism.
In the end...they trying to make that money bag as big as possible.
This very same sentiment that blk woman face little to no racism has historically been used to demonize, ignore the plight of black women particularly blk mothers in need of social support and programs so it is worth discussing
Ive never heard anyone argue this
obviously I have
you argued that black women dont experience racism?
What I was saying was some people like to make the claim, suggest blk women experience little to no racism ... Or not to the extent that blk men experience racism...Which I believe is not only untrue but is a detriment to black progress
I can refute that quite easily
At yearend 2010, black non-Hispanic
males had an imprisonment rate
(3,074 per 100,000 U.S. black male
residents) that was nearly 7 times
higher than white non-Hispanic
males (459 per 100,000)
Black non-Hispanic females (133 per
100,000 U.S. black female residents)
had an imprisonment rate nearly 3
times that of white non-Hispanic
females (47 per 100,000)
Black man are targeted by the system more frequently
Doesn't take away from the occurrences that happen to women but statistically it is less likely to happen to them.
