4. On the lack of roles for African Americans In Hollywood: “How I feel about any role for any actor is that it depends on the writing and what’s going on in the world. Most characters are based on people in the world, and if a race/culture wants to be portrayed a certain way, then it’s up to them to represent themselves in that way in the real world. Either that or have the great creative minds in a race/culture be in control of the writing and creative aspect of a production, such as Shonda Rhimes, who has created amazing content for Kerry Washington and Viola Davis.”
