A Lot Of White People: Hollywood Reporter's 40 Most Anticipated Flicks Of 2016

Monday, January 11, 2016

I'm not saying that the films on the list won't be good or aren't worth seeing or there isn't artistry in any of the actors. Nor am I saying that the HWR didn't do its due diligence in vetting more films with more POC in it (although I guess I'm not saying that either).

And no - I don't have a list for you right now either.

All I'm saying is that outside of a few flicks it's a lot of White People in front, and in back of the camera.

Sure you have some noteables like Ghostbusters, The Magnificent Seven, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' (Ang Lee directing), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Trek Beyond, and Deadpool - but...that's it (or at least close too).

And out of 40 you have to agree - it's pretty White.

That's why you have to feed yourself another diet of media because only you can prevent yourself from seeing and supporting diverse and rich media experiences.

You just have to look.
