Black Tales: George Lucas- Hollywood Didn’t Want To Fund Red Tails Because Of Its Black Cast

In an interview with the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart on Monday night, Lucas was frank about the trouble he had getting the film made—in part, he said, because the studios weren’t willing to finance a film without a white protagonist as an anchor.

“This has been held up for release since 1942 since it was shot, I’ve been trying to get released ever since,” Lucas joked—although he did say that the film took about 23 years to develop. “It’s because it’s an all-black movie. There’s no major white roles in it at all…I showed it to all of them and they said nooooo. We don’t know how to market a move like this.” Lucas goes on to explain that major studios don’t believe films with majority black casts do well in foreign markets. Lucas was unbowed, telling Stewart that “we do want to do a prequel and a sequel,” which I take as a measure of how excited and proud about Red Tails Lucas actually is. Bonus exuberance: “This is the closest you’ll ever get to Episode Seven.”

Vibe’s deliberately controversial story on Morehouse queers

Can a ‘Mean Girl’ Be a Morehouse Man?
Judging by the all-male college’s reaction to a current article in Vibe magazine, Morehouse expects all its students to conform to a narrow range of self-expression. But some people believe you can be a Morehouse man and still wear high heels (or a do-rag).

By Shani O. Hilton

It’s hard to know where to begin when talking about the firestorm surrounding Aliya S. King’s Vibe article about “The Mean Girls of Morehouse.” King’s focus on three young men who are expressing a nontraditional, queer gender identity has rankled many, including Morehouse President Robert M. Franklin. In fact, Franklin rebutted King’s piece based on its title alone, saying he was disturbed that it referred to a subset of Morehouse men as “girls.” read more
