  1. You’re right, fangirlu!  That is how Hollywood movies and television should look. I have often wondered how different “The Breakfast Club,” or “Pretty in Pink,” or “Footloose” might have been with a racially diverse cast.  These types of videos point to the need of different types of stories – not just ones with distinct European origins.

    How many more Batman/Superman stories do we need?  How many different ways can Jane Austen be interpreted before we’ve had enough?  Who’s considered the ‘Shakespeare’ of Asia and can those stories be told here in America?  I would love to watch a movie of an African mythical world or and ancient Indian battle.

    Alright, I could go on and on, but I think I’ll stop here.
