Who the fu*k are against British Actors? They have great actors, when I first started watching The Wire, I didn't even know Stringer Bell (Idris Elba) was British same for Detective McNulty (Dominic West)

No issues with British actors BUT Hollywood casting is terrible a lot of times like David Oyelowo as MLK

I stopped after "blacks taking white roles"...you must be 1 of those Kanye Jesse Lee #Housen*ggaLogic having a*s negroes.

With that said, it's a legitimate argument.
If I was a Black American actor, I'd feel some type of way about it.
The London dude in his feelings.


african americans playing africans in movies is an issue using your rhetoric

do you agree

I mean lets be real here it was British actors that did that twelve years a slave bullsh*t. Also all they do is generalizations and stereotypes of black Americans. Hollyweird and its sellouts are disrespectful on and off screen.
And how many slave movies and shows have we(African Americans) done ot acted in over the last 70 or so years? A lot.

Your point is terrible.

A movie about slaves isnít selling out.

Itís a fu*ked up thing that happened but it happened. Weíre greater than it, but ignoring or lashing out at anyone who tells its storyís is weak.

Yup. That part. Those MLB players can't wait to pull a Sammy Sosa. All those years of being payed nothing to tap dance mammy and now Hollyweird pretends to be so hard up on money to pay what they owe them. Seth Rogan and charlize theron getting all the funding and full pay they ask for, while destroying black children and benefiting off apartheid till this day. Hollyweird gotta go bruh long story short.
A lot of Latinos suffer from colorism. Coconut Syndrome. Itís heavy in the DR especially but spreader all over Central America.

MLB I will say encourages black players all the time. Trust they want blacks to play. Make political noise.. maybe not so much but they definitely want them.

Your Reply is terrible.

And you missed my point dumbass.

Twelve years a slave is an example of UK actors of African decent playing Hollyweird racist roles, for cheap on top of that. The us actors unionized and were trying to use their influence to stop bullsh*t films like this from being made,that was my point you bum.

Hollyweird always gonna use starving black/African/Caribbean actors for less money to reinforce stereotypes of black Americans. No cap.

Serious question, what makes a great actor?

Everytime this comes up, folks only seem to bring up the accent. That's for both white and black actors.

I mean, where I understand the arguments in this thread, the best way I I can put it is I want to be able to do business everywhere, and I'd hate if I were denied opportunities on account of where I was born. As an African-American man, though I recognize where I stand in the social hierarchy in America, I also recognize that being an "American" affords me limitless access and opportunity virtually.

Americans have access to every market, we export entertainment like no other country -- I think those focused on the Brits that might be occupying roles that they feel like they deserve are probably too caught up in hating and pocket watching as opposed to perfecting their craft. Same time, with as little representation there is on the screen, n*ggaz should just be happy to see somebody who looks like them making it. It's a job. I don't care where you from if you're doing your job well.

I will say this In reference to Snowfall specifically.... Franklin, I was legit shocked when he revealed himself to be British. Like they are that good man I did not see it coming. If it's good who cares who playing. No one said a thing about Stringer Bell
No one said a thing about Idris Elba or Dominic West.

They're entitled to have this discussion.

It's interesting that they are having it.

They don't have to be right.

And just because they talk about it, doesn't mean it's legitimate.

But they are entitled to have characters having this discussion.

When I look at the whole picture, yes it's an issue that impacts American actors in general, black or white. The British and Aussie actors are eating they food, but like most issues in American society, Black Americans take the brunt of it since there's not alot of quality available roles for black actors to begin with.

All you n*ggas that think this is not a issue imagine if "we" started going to the UK and taking 70% of their acting roles with our fake British accents? I'm just getting tired of watching movies or shows with black actors then I find out most of them n*ggas is British

Main example is "get out" you really telling me dude couldn't find a American actor to play that role?


“Black British actors are better suited than black American actors because they don’t carry the burden of … fu*ked up black American history. Lynching, slavery, Jim Crow, all of that,” Olu remarked in the scene.
And I really don't believe this bullsh*t excuse if anything the history would bring more emotion into the roles making it more believable, idk man just from the outside looking in it looks weird

Because white actors have a bigger piece of the pie... You watch any Hollywood movie on average 90-99.9% of the actors are white so even if a movie has 4 British whites there's still enough roles for 4 American whites but for us it's not the same you'll be lucky to see 1 black actor sometimes

I just wanna see more n*ggas from where I come from in movies I don't know what makes British actors better than Americans is it the acting schools or are they just naturally better? I admit British actors are really talented but I don't think young African American actors are giving a chance to prove themselves as much
