About Alluding Misnomer

  1. Steve McQueen on white-washed Hollywood. (via afrolens

    When asked to explain why he thinks there are so few Black people or other minorities in film, McQueen replied, “Ask them,” referring to his fellow nominees on the round table, fellow directors, all of them White men.

    One of them pipes up, “Not stepping into that one!” No, please— step in! Don’t disavow yourself of any responsibility; don’t disown the situation. Not when every casting decision you make has the power to change. [Reminds me of the Best Actor roundtable Newsweek did in which Viola Davis touches on the difficulty Black actors have in Hollywood— Same story, different year.]
