I’ve worked in the Entertainment Industry for over 15 years. I’ve worked for: The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox and Disney. In my opinion "Blackout Tuesday" is a bullshit Publicity Stunt.
The Entertainment Industry, especially the Media, are a major part of the problem. If they want to make serious change, they need to hire more minorities, and women, and give them equal pay for their jobs. Hire more people of color as writers, directors, producers and crews. Like Frances McDormand said “Inclusion Rider.”
Stop labeling, and marketing Films, written by Black Writers as "Black Films." Increase the budgets for these films. Our stories are universal and resonate globally.
Most people only believe what they see, hear and read. Stop the racist, and constant negative stereo types of Black Men, in Film and Television. Black Men are: Business Owners, CEO’s, Senators, Doctors, Lawyers, Astronomers, Engineers, Generals, Scientists, Astronauts, Sociologists, Inventors, Entrepreneurs, Authors, Philanthropists, etc. A Black Man even became President of the United States.
