Of the eight protagonists of color SIX ARE WILL SMITH
THIS IS IT. This is the reason I’m becoming a film director. My number 1 goal is to add diversity in fantasy and science fiction, my two favorite genres of all time. Mostly, because I could never understand why stories set in the future always depicted white people and men in most positions of power. That is an EXTREMELY inaccurate prediction of where the human race is heading in terms of equality and acceptance.
P.S. I recommend watching “Extant” starring Halle Berry, in terms of casting I think it could use more diversity, but it’s pointing in the right direction (there is disability and POC representation, and in lead roles).
