Should a white man tell a black trans woman’s story?

While Marsha P Johnson may not be a household name, a fiery digital debate has started about who is “allowed” to bring her story to the screen.

WTF? Hollywood our moral superior normalizes this stuff.

    By the time the left gets done, you will only be able to write autobiographies.

    it should bought to the screen by a cabal of predatory secular Jews as normal , a well thought of white pool boy can play the Negress in suitable black face. any complaints should be met with hysterical charges of racism,sexism and transphobia

    Hollyweird frets over the production of a snoozer PC film no one will pay to see — great!

      At least liberals tearing each other to bits and having hissy fits is entertainment.

    Why tell it at all?

    • ntt1

      because a lot of people aren’t aware of the deep influence Carmen Miranda had on Obama

    Why you call trans woman and why should one talk about it, it killed my appetite!

      I think it is “he” not “she”. Just saying. I admit not to be up with the latest homosexual jargon, but were such people not referred to as “queens” in homosexual society in the past?

      • vwVwwVwv

        Have no idea of homosexuals and not the slightest curiosity about them.
        I know they exist, I know about some exemplars and I have no problems
        with them as long I don’t have to know more about their way of existence.

        A “queen” is a gay man who is of the more effeminate and simpering sort. It didn’t necessarily include cross-dressing or drag. A drag queen is a gay man in drag who performs on stage.

    London premiere of Chinese takeaway opera The Golden Dragon cancelled after angry backlash over all-white cast.
    The opening night of The Golden Dragon stage performance was scheduled for the end of this month at the Hackney Empire.
    But the theatre said it was refusing to allow the production to go ahead after a row erupted over the lack of diversity in its cast.

      I confess to being a fan of the old Charlie Chan movies when I was a kid, and imagine that I have even borrowed the collection from the library a few times and really enjoyed them. Ah, those were good times when one could enjoy something without all this crap.

    I always thought the African Queen was a Humphrey Bogart movie.
