Response to "Blackout" review
6 July 2013 | by keithhenrybrownSee all my reviews

In response to tensorbundle and his review "Blackout", I always find it strange when reviewers like himself point out how few whites there are in films that are targeted to primarily African American audiences.

The reviewer mentions there are only "two or three" white actors in the film, as if this were a bad thing.

tensorbundle, imagine if almost every film made were all black actors and only 5% or less of films featured whites? That's how it is if you're African American. Practically all American films and television shows feature white casts with just the occasional black presence.

It's ridiculous that you think a film can't exist without white actors.

As for the film itself, no, it isn't very good. But that's beside the point.
