Reply to "Hollywood Didn’t Want to Fund ‘Red Tails’ Because It Was All Black"

 

Many years ago I attended a speech by a great American war hero and the commanding officer of the Tuskegee airman, General Benjamin O. Davis Jr. The crowd was 90% white! Another time I went to see a number of Tuskegee airman speak and the results were the same. There was a white woman who had three small children and she ushered them forward to meet with the former pilots. She said to her children, “Listen, theses are great American heroes. Say hello to them”. The Tuskegee airman, one black woman and I, were the only blacks present. Everyone else was white. What’s wrong with this picture? E’nuff said….

 

 Exactly!!!  This has been MY experience as well.  And  you ask what's wrong with this picture?  Well...there are NOT many black people in it.  So why do they continue to complain about true stories they are the leading stars of?   Tragic.  But!
