George Lucas Admits Hollywood Didn't Want To Fund 'Red Tails' Because Of Its Black Cast: White Husbands of Black Women Do Face Racism


We have been asking our dear black sisters whom are married to their white husbands, 'how do they handle racism and speak with them about, whenever they face it.'  Therefore, we wondered if they faced it alone or do their white husbands even care.  Well, obviously George Lucas who is happily married to his black woman, Mellody Hobson has just experienced racial discrimination and he admits it on this following video.  We feel George Lucas is being extremely honest about racism, which something a lot of black men will not do and honestly, even some black women.  George Lucas created a film to give black actors a chance in Hollywood and because it is an all black cast, he faced racial discrimination.


We feel George Lucas has opened the eyes of many people whom wondered if racial discrimination was ever discussed among white men and their black wives.  Although, we have got our answer, it is a twist, he experienced it.  Furthermore, it is obvious he and Mellody Hobson have possibly experienced it, but like a lot of other white men and their black wives, we never know until they admit it.


We think George Lucas is a very courageous man and even better, behind every strong men, there is a very strong, positive and powerful woman. 


Dear sisters, how would we feel married to a white husband whom has always been big in Hollywood whose just admitted he has faced racial discrimination, on the behalf of our race?  No doubt, his experience with racism would make us feel totally as one and connected with him.

There's no major white roles in it at all...I showed it to all of them and they said no. We don't know how to market a movie like this."

"Red Tails," which stars Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Terrence Howard, is based on the Tuskegee Airmen, the group of pioneering black pilots who fought in the United States' segregated armed forces during World War II. The movie is directed by Anthony Hemingway, the rare black director getting a chance to direct...Read full article, here.
