Black people and movies

Okay think about your favorite my movies.
your favorite all-time movies. make a mental list

how many of them have no black people?
or the one or two black people that you see have no lines?
Or the lines are delivered off-camera?
then think about how much black people support the movie industry?
And understand it’s not just going to the movies.
it’s your satellite or cable subscription.
it’s your Netflix or Hulu account.
It’s the products that are placed in these movies that you happen to buy.
it’s all these things that say it’s okay
you want me to believe that everybody lives in a world where there’s no one who looks like me.
And that’s okay!
