RJJ: Val, you know what I think? I think Hollywood been knew that their myths about the inferiority/marketability of black cinema were based on bigotry rather than research. But the job of Hollywood is to promote kyriarchy. We bend over backwards to try to prove to white supremacists that we’re worthy by their standards of success. It’s a waste of time. They already know we’re worthy; they’re simply afraid of us knowing it and the whole world knowing it, too. Because if we are successful, in their minds, it means they are not. They’re frightened that the fear might be reality.
