Why You Should Stop Talking About Black Lives Matter (and Go Back to Talk About Movies)
By now, you’ve probably heard that movie stars and movie studios are trying to get black actors to play their favorite roles again, or that they’re trying to create a “new narrative” that’s inclusive of black actors.
But in an era when black and Asian actors are getting little to no role in mainstream cinema, this new narrative is not only being ignored but actively discouraged.
And that’s not a problem that only affects white actors, either.
In a recent article, Black People Are Still Getting Called “White” In The Movies article When I was in my 20s, it was common to see white people being called “white” or “white actors” in movies and TV shows.
But I think that we need to be looking at this more critically now.
When I started making movies, I wanted to make films about people of color, and I wanted them to be part of the story, so I wanted it to be a diverse filmography.
But today, as in decades past, I’ve seen a lot of white actors getting called “White actors,” and I’m really glad I didn’t.
Black actors are the real heroes in films, and they should be celebrated.
That’s the kind of thing I’m proud to say, even though I know I’m not going to be making movies about them anytime soon.
When we talk about race in movies, we often talk about what the “right” way to be in the film is.
We often talk in terms of how good actors are, or how good the director is, or what the music is.
But as actors and filmmakers, we should be talking about what’s right for the film, and not about who’s good at what.
In fact, when we talk to white people about their own experiences, I think we’re often missing the most important thing we need: a better understanding of who we are and where we come from.
When I started creating movies, my goal was to make movies about people who were in my generation, or my generation’s generation, and to give them the kind, loving, supportive people they needed to succeed in our world.
I wanted films to be about stories about the people I grew up with, and my people, and the people who came before me.
So when I made my first movie, I told myself that I wanted people to see me as someone who could have made a difference in their life, who would have made the difference that my parents and grandparents made in my life.
And so, I started out by making movies that dealt with the real issues of black people and black people in our generation, but I also made movies that focused on other issues in our society.
When people look at movies, they’re often thinking about the “good black people” in them, but when we’re thinking about our own people, we’re looking at people who we see in our own lives.
We see what’s in our heads, and we think about what our minds are telling us.
And when we make movies that have a broader lens, we can see how these ideas come together and come apart in the real world, as well.
And this is something that we should all be asking ourselves more and more.
What’s the most meaningful story that your family and your community could tell about us?
What’s something that you and your friends could do together that would have a positive impact on our world?
What can we learn from people who have lived through something like this?
What lessons can we be taking away from them?
What do you think would help us better understand what it means to be Black in America?
