Reply to "What About Amistad?"

Clearly, the outstanding supporting performance in this film was delivered by Djimon Hounsou.

In continuing to consider this film, it becomes apparent to me that American institutions do not know how to recognize artistry in people who are not European.

They often see artistic performance as savant behavior.

Alternatively, they cannot recognize acting by non-European as acting; rather it is 'just who they are'.

Both emphatically true for actors of African ancestry.
