Director George Lucas says it took 20 years to get his latest film made, “because it’s an all-black movie”.
Speaking on The Daily Show, Lucas said he had to self-fund Red Tails, the true story of a group of African-American pilots who fought in World War II.
He claimed major film studios would not back the movie because “there’s no major white roles in it at all”.”
…He then discusses how 2 of Clint Eastwood’s war movies didn’t have any black actors when at the time, there were. Hollywood is racially insensitive so if the media that controls what WE see on TV and in the movies, what does that say to our young ones, to our culture, to us?
This makes me want to see the movie even more!
My family and I are def gonna see it :)
