First, Why is it?? that Newman's Own, or The Syms Foundation or others ever talk about Supporting Diversity?!? nor more importantly offering a Matching challenge of at least $ 1,000,000.00 all year long!! they can afford it! but More Importantly how does your board of directors expect viewers to want to contribute? when our voices and unique perspectives are TOTALLY IGNORED!! and Dismissed?!? for example,
MEDIA DIVERSITY 2019
My Grandmother Always said, “ Everyone wants the Truth!! But is afraid to actually hear what is being told to them! and then analyses what they were told without getting side tracked by the words they were utilizing to express their thoughts! You can give a person powerful knowledge! But you can’t make them actually think!!! Some people are lazy and want to remain fools!! Only because the Truth requires a real effort to choose to change ….. “ So, is it just me?!? or do other independent-Thinking individuals also believe that ‘Power Truly corrupts’!! and the major decision makers in the media, in this day and age! are still behaving like a spoiled, intolerant, racists, Two-year old troglodyte, as they still willfully discriminate against the Over 200 known Superhero’s of color! When green-lighting movies, TV shows/series, actresses/actors, writers, directors, and/or producers! Who support the full inclusion of equal diversity in both Primary/Lead human characters, and Secondary/Side-kick cast members! Where at least both of these groups have 50% human people of color! Instead of this hostile, implicit-biased, absolute, reliance by these white major decision makers, or unimaginative white writers, directors, and producers, that easily green-light productions for the overwhelmingly abundant and totally Generic screen plays/scripts, of generally new and unknown white actor! That in reality could have equally been played by a just as qualified and talented minority and a person of color; in shows like FAM; FBI; Quantico; Blue Bloods; Chicago PD; Taken; Madam Secretary; The Division; Private Eyes; The Resident; etc., just to name a few Generic shows. So where are our unique voices and perspectives .
So Why do they always need to be blue-eyed and blond?!? or for example, with the PBS News Hour, Why do all the so-called ‘Experts’ on any subject need to be White-looking?!? Where are the Equally relevant voices and perspectives of Respected Journalists like, Mrs. Audie Corins, or Mrs. Zerlina Maxwell, to expand the daily PBS News Hour panel to TRULY Include Mrs. Judy Woodworth, Truly Sharing the spotlight!! with an African American, a Dark-skinned Hispanic, an Asian, and someone from the Muslim community!! to offer their Equally Qualified unique Life-experiences Perspective!!! on the News of the Day !! or on the Regular weekly PBS News Hour Political-panel of an African American, a Dark-skinned Hispanic, an Asian, someone from the Muslim community, and a White individual !! to dissect the current Political news and how it Daily AFFECTS our Diverse communities!!!
Why do the major decision makers, always need to be so disrespectful and rely on the ancient and truly outdated 7 to one formula of casting with one bleached token character of color! and basically whitewashing actors to be so white-looking!! In our reality of financially successful Diverse projects such as Black Panther, and Crazy Rich Asians?!? Why does there still need to be this weak-minded, mentally-challenged, behavior of a totally insecure white monopoly?!? Why is it so important for white decision makers to continue to perpetrate the fraud that a white character needs to be the ‘Protector character’; or the ‘Smart/Genius character’; or the ‘white male with the black woman character’; and the many other false stereotypes that they continue to be utilized in movies and TV Shows/Series?!? Please DON’T EVER Get me WRONG!! I have No problem with White people!! My Dissatisfaction is with the TV Networks and Movie studios!! Who keep perpetrating so many stereotype’s! and blatantly continue to ‘White-wash’ characters!! That are Not White-looking . That is what I was trying to express! Since its been well over Forty years!! That all we see are White characters in all these GENERIC stories and sitcoms . Where is all their So-called progressive Inclusive Diversity?!? Its 2019 for God’s sake! Or again, Am I the only person with a pulse?!? To notice. Why can’t these white decision makers just put-on their big girl panties and deal with the True Diversity of our Great nation . I’m sorry! I thought these major decision makers wanted to make a lot of money with high quality scripts staring people of color?? Besides, intelligent, independent-thinking individuals! Would really like to know why they are so hostile .
Where are the known human superhero’s and other human characters who actually look like us?!? Like the 100 known Authentic Carmel-complexioned Hispanic American Superhero’s like; Jessica Cruz and Kyle Rayner Green Lanterns; Living Lightning; Black Tarantula; Spider-Girl; Mike Morales; Firebird; Aquagirl; Hawkgirl; etc., or the 49 known Authentic Carmel-complexioned Asian American Superhero’s like; Jade; Dr. Light; Katana; Lady Shiva; Cassandra Cain; Jubilee; Mantis; Grace Choi etc., or the other 100 plus, known Authentic Black Superhero’s like Kid Quantum; Cyborg; John Steward Green Lantern; Ryder; Frenzy; Trent; Twilight; War Machine; Luke Cage; Deathlok; Patriot; Misty Knight; Blue Marvel; Vixen; Lightning; None of which are seriously being supported, considered, or seemingly being sought after by the majority of intolerant and hostile implicit-biased, unimaginative, myopic white decision makers, producers, writers, directors, who hold the positions responsible for greenlighting and actually producing High Quality works with people of color who actually look like us!!
Its hilarious how in 2019 the major decision makers at Walt Disney Studios; 2900 Alameda Ave; Burbank, California 91505; Mr. Alan F. Horn, President and CEO; or DC Entertainment HQ; NYC headquarters 1700 Broadway; New York, New York 10019; Phone, (212) 636-5400; or Marvel Entertainment, LLC; 135 W. 50th Street; New York, NY 10020; or the many other movie studios and TV Networks, that have come out with advertisements espousing their Greater desire to acknowledge a more inclusive mind-set!! Yet in such a hypercritical behavior!!! of exemplifications in Their new schedules of new shows and movies, which are still exclusively white!!! and absolutely lack any real and tangible inclusive diversity within their primary and secondary cast members!! for Black Americans, Carmel-complexioned Hispanic Americans, or Carmel-complexioned Asian Americans!! That they so steadfastly espouse!!! Wonder how many letters and E-mails they would get? If like-minded individuals took the time to also ask! Why we don’t see ourselves in any movies, tv series/shows, or reflect our unique perspectives?!? So is it just me? Who wants full inclusion and Fair Equality of Diversity in all the media for my family, and Future Generations of fellow citizens . I'm just saying, I wish the PBS News Hour was Three hours each day!! its the Most Trusted!! for REAL News!! even though they still Fail to IMMEDIATELY Correct anyone who Misstates or Flat-out LIES!! during the newscast .
