Not tryna go POAST, but, I'm sure there are plenty Af-Am actors who can represent their heritage? It seems like these roles are being outsourced. It didn't even feel right in "The Butler." Just seems unauthentic.

and this was one of the trailers
and me and my lady are the ONLY TWO Blackbrown folk in the whole theater
JESUS christ at the awkward tension and silence as the trailer played and ended. I mean you could hear a pin drop. The had a collective white folk exhale when the trailer for Bomklap's new movie come on seconds later.

It's a very good movie. I think Ava DuVernay is a "lock" for Best Director Oscar Nom. So should be David Oyelowo. The movie is powerful. Especially in light of the recent protests around the country. You see the brutality by the police in the film and you see that nothing has changed.
