Are there not enough great black actresses to play opposite to black actors?
In Chris Tucker’s latest venture, titled “Gangster M.D.”, Tucker plays a….well, gangster pretending to be a….well, Doctor. It is based on a Bollywood hit screenplay, and an opposite, preferably Indian is being sought as a love interest for Tucker.
Why are most roles that involve african american male actors either, gang or hustler related? Why not a black love interest? What kind of message are we sending?
Sorry, I had to vent. I like Chris Tucker and I respect trying to earn a dollar or two, but sometimes you gotta ask the whats and why?
