wait. hold up.

In your example of MLK. Race would be important in that case because it is central to the story. Ghost in the Shell the alleged “white washing” is for a cyborg. The race of a cyborg is whatever they want it to be. It made no sense to make this argument for this movie. I assume this is a piece that Shea has wanted to write and was looking for the proper movie to do it for. He just chose poorly.

I am optimistic for diversity in regards to roles going forward. Look at the success of a movie like Hidden Figures. It’s success should send a message to studio execs that audiences will buy tickets to see non-white actors.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
