I remember watching this interview with Dave Chappelle one day and wondering why we believe white people, especially white women, as universally appealing? 

Why are they the “safe” bet when it comes to casting? 

Why do we whitewash our main characters and leave PoC to the supporting roles, unless they’re one of the few PoC that either fit a stereotype or are popular with white people?

I get whiteness. I understand what it is. But why do we cling to it?

What’s not appealing about a woman of color? What makes them so appalling that we give so few them any chance of success in television and movies?

If you have the time watch this. Dave Chappelle just gave us the way to change the world’s point of view on everything in just under an hour in a half. True genius comes from those perceived as fools

My favorite episode
