Black Lives Matter

The United States has had a rash of police killings of Black people. Part of the reason why police kill Black people is because they stereotype all Black people as thugs. This is how the media represents us. A big part of this problem is behind the scenes Hollywood is almost all white. The executives, agents, talent managers, screenwriters, directors, and producers are almost all white. If there were more Black people behind the scenes in Hollywood, we could get truthful and accurate representation of Black people and Black issues.

While the media has misrepresented Black people as thugs, our people are dying. Not just at the hands of the police. Black people are severely underrepresented in the private sector jobs with good health insurance and due to systematic racism in the healthcare system, black people are in poor health to begin with. So Covid-19 killed more black people in greater numbers. So to the companies that are claiming Black Lives Matter, end the social exclusion of Black people. Bring us to the table. Hire us!

We need justice. The Hollywood unions are members of AFL-CIO and can demand the expulsion of the police union for constantly defending police when they kill.
