My sis has a new movie in theaters this weekend. As usual the industry is watching to see how it performs and will make all kinds of judgements based on that. I know you’re busy, I know you have plans this weekend, I know it’s cold outside. I don’t care. If you can’t make it to a theater, stop what you’re doing and take 60secs to buy a ticket or two to #ProudMary. Do it because it has a WOC in the lead of an action film, do it because somebody agreed to finance a film centered around a black woman, do it because @tarajiphenson is the , do it because you liked Hidden Figures or Empire or Baby Boy, do it because the director is of color and named Babak. I don’t care why you do it. Just do. Then go back to your regularly scheduled Saturday feeling good about doing your part to make a difference in perceptions in Hollywood because believe me every dollar does. I have absolutely nothing to do with this film and yet it has everything to do with me and anybody else in this industry who looks like me as we continue to fight to tell our stories. Thanks for your time.
