I made this thread due to and answer I saw in the thread that is pertaining to the petition to stop an all white cast playing a role that should be play by blacks. The response was "who cares if white people play us." I felt that my response needed a thread of it's own to explain why we all, as a race should care. Who, and what we are has been systematically, over the centuries, stripped from us in various forms such as brutality, denial of education, education, advertising, and TV. The reason these young burthas and sistas in this video think this way is due to being brought up in a system that reinforces the things you see in this video. White is good, black is bad. white is pretty, black is ugly. Now you have celebs that is helping to perpetuate these thing by bleaching their skin. And if that wasn't enough, you have a movie made about us, who's characters are being represented by a race that stripped us of these things in the first place. And lets not forget the movie Noah, that had no blacks in it, eventhough we existed during that time. It is one big circle all over again, which is you destroy the true image, and systematically insert your own in it's place. So,yes, I think we should care, because not caring, in and of itself is what got us in this situation in the first place. Peace!
