James Brown, Whitewashed?

There were several meetings. Eight White men and two White women. Was this a meeting of the Mormon Glee Club? The New White Citizens Council? Perhaps a Klan meeting? No. That meeting was the creative team for the new James Brown movie, "Get On Up."

Welcome to post-racial Hollywood where if you host a fundraiser for Barack Obama, you're freed of the burden of hiring Black writers. And where a rich wWhite producer can jokingly declare, "I'm Black."

Indeed, all the producers, writers, and the director of the James Brown movie are White. No Black people were hired until a few weeks before the cameras started rolling, the actors. In fact, several of the people involved in this whitewash are British. The Brits have a fetish for Black projects.
