Thank you for your comment. I was struck by your observation about the black Hollywood elite and how many of them don’t necessarily “put their money where their mouth is”. You are absolutely correct. Will Smith has a production company that only serves him and his family. He employs mostly white screenwriters. And yet he is upset when he fails to get recognized by the Academy. This issue runs deep. My assessment doesn’t begin to cover the scope of the problem from both sides. I just can’t have a privileged white woman declare that black people are racist for demanding equality. That can’t go unchecked.
