Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriation
If ever a project required black creative involvement, it was this one. James Brown was the blackest entertainer in the history of America. The blackest. There was nothing integrationist about his art, at all. He never tried to crossover. You had to come to him. He was iconic and not just musically.
And yet, where did producer Brian Grazer hire to embody this blackest of black men? Three white writers, two of them from England. Then more producers were added, all white, and a white director, who has said that he sees this as a movie about singing and dancing. Bingo. Now we’re ready to make a black movie. It doesn’t matter a bit that one of the producers is a famous rock star who played with Brown a few times and lifted some of his moves. James Brown belongs to us, the black masses, and for us to be excluded from the creative team that made this movie is an obscenity. I’m aware that Spike Lee was involved briefly, but the finished product looks like a Mitt Romney family reunion.

DIDN’T I SAY the shit looked cartoonish?
And I’m just saying ahead of time, don’t read the comments, cause our ‘liberal’ friends at HuffPo continue to show they just as white supremacist as the Republicans when it comes to Black folks telling the truth. (via tashabilities)
bell hooks said in the 90s that White people were going to take over making “the Black film.”(via bitteroreo)
