You ain't poo Afro! You tryin' to start something at 2am.LOL

Alias, it is interesting. They wouldn't have to barely do a thing.

I'd have to shed my culture for a stereotype, adopt white culture or at the very least water my culture down to make most whites feel comfortable. If I'm doing that, I'm not writing with my real voice. By white standards, I do not want to be 'universal'. Imo it's a losing battle.

Someone needs to post this idea-article on E-hollywood or something So many ethnic Hollywood celebrties try and push this idea and its just another symptom of our race disease~ THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BEING UNIVERSAL- And it shouldn't be a human ambition....

Nope

But this...

"The onus for an actor becoming "colorless" is not on the actor, but on the audience. It's up to the audience to see past an actor's color. No actor (or person in general) should dilute their culture just to make other people comfortable. White actors are unforgivably white, and why not, it works for them because there's an over-saturation of them in cinema and television. Often, Asian, Latinos, and blacks either have to amplify their heritage or completely dilute it in order to make white American audiences comfortable. Such a shame."

Was their a thread made about Will Smith's comments to Vivica ?

Quote “Will has always been my inspiration,” Fox said. “To see this man become an international box office, absolutely one of the #1 earning box office movie stars has just been amazing for me.”

“Will Smith told me years ago when we were doing Independence Day to become colorless to people. Yes we are African-American… that is who we are. But when people internationally can love you, trust you deliver a good film, trust you to save the world, it’s a good day.”
