Michael B. Jordan Urges Studios To Work With Black Actors/Actresses

Creed’ star Michael B. Jordan hit the streets to protest the police violence and the racial inequality in the wake of the death of George Floyd and gave a rousing speech.

Micheal B. Jordan, who represents ‘Black Panther’ criticized the practices of Hollywood studios about cast selection and claimed black actors/actresses’ rights.

The 33-year-old actor said:

“I use my power to demand diversity, but it’s time the studios, the agencies, all these buildings that we’re standing in front of, I wish they would do the same. You committed to a 50/50 gender parity in 2020. Where is the challenge to commit to black hiring? Black content led by Black executives, Black consultants.”

The numerous awards-winning Jordan urged studios to work with black actors/actresses by saying the followings:

“Are you policing our storytelling as well? Let us bring our darkness to the light.”

Then he continued:

 “The sneakers, sports, the comedic culture that you guys love so much, we’ve dealt with discrimination at very turn. Can you help fund Black brands? A great agent doesn’t have to be a great agent could advocate for relationships with organizers.”

This powerful speech got much positive feedback from protestors.
