Will smith, Denzel Washington and a plethora of other people in show business are international stars. Kevin Hart, Beyoncé are world wide stars infusing their culrture in everything they do. The jig is up! If you don’t want to make more diverse movies just say that. the tired excuse of that movies of “color” don’t have an audience outside the States is false and insulting. Hip hop is American culture and we know who created hip hop and America holds the pulse of the world. Boyz in the Hood premiered in France, critics loved it, then the American media jumped on the bad wagon. Eddie Murphy had a reign almost spanned a decade where he was that guy globally! Many people learned to speak English watching coming to America over and over. The goal should always be vertical integration, own studios, production companies everything! I’m interested in what motivates you when you live in Lao and you loose your job or how losing your father in Guam shaped your life. I just don’t want to hear more stories from my community but all the voices who have zero representation in the media.
#thankyou everyone for tuning in to the premiere of the @dearlittleproject. You can catch it re-playing every Sunday in April form 8-8:30pm at the link in my bio. [Doing my best to get it up on youtube ASAP as well!] I appreciate all of the love and support. All I want to do in life is spread positive energy.
Representation matters when you come from nothing seeing yourself on screen rather big or small can have a drastic affect on your life. When kids don’t see images of them selves in a positive light or have context to the reality they are seeing they tend to believe what they see and fall in line. The 90s sitcoms taught life lessons that many didn’t have the opportunity to learn inside their home. We need to bring back feeling Martin, Living single etc.
