THINGS I THINK WHITE ACTORS COULD DO TO HELP THE INEQUALITY PROBLEM IN HOLLYWOOD
Perhaps I don't fully grasp all of the decisions that go into accepting a role, but if you are a white actor at what point do you read a script, know that the character is clearly written as a POC, and not think, 'maybe I should not be playing this part'?
- •If you think a part is written for a POC, ask why you are being considered
- •Turn down a role that you are offered if you are going to have to wear brown or black face make-up
- •Suggest an actor of color, that you like, that would be great for the part
- •Suggest a POC, and/or a woman, to play a part that may have been written for a white guy
