Jesus Christ.

Trap music and reality tv sail right along, but sharing a personal belief gets you eaten alive.
Black people are going to wind up like politics - smart people won't see the worth of the bother, while every piece of unnecessary shit will step up and wind up representing us.

Especially since many of the Black directors within this 'new' class - Duvernay, Jenkins, Coogler, Issa Rae, Peele and more - all seem like they pull from non-Black sources.

I mean ALOT of people in Hollywood seem like they have an outsized sense of their importance so I'm not necessarily salty at her for thinking she's above the issues other filmmakers have. But I'm interested to know thw work she feels is too 'genre-based'.

Or the part where she says she's special?
