Straight Outta Compton Casting Call Is Racist as Hell | Gawker

Universal Pictures is hard at work on the film Straight Outta Compton, an N.W.A. biopic set for release next year. The movie is happening with the cooperation of heavyweights like Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. Here is a casting call for the film that went out yesterday.

This casting call was posted yesterday by Sande Allesi Casting, an agency that has posted several casting notices for the film:

SAG OR NON UNION CASTING NOTICE FOR FEMALES-ALL ETHNICITIES- from the late 80’s. Shoots on “Straight Outta Compton”. Shoot date TBD. We are pulling photos for the director of featured extras. VERY IMPORTANT – You MUST live in the Los Angeles area (Orange County is fine too) to work on this show. DO NOT SUBMIT if you live out of the area. Nobody is going to be flying into LA to do extra work on this show - and don’t tell me you are willing to fly in.

Some people believe that Hollywood is often guilty of perpetuating and reinforcing harmful racial stereotypes.

Editor’s Note: Out of curiosity I decided to check out Sande Allesi Casting, and there are three names listed in the About Us section — Sande AlessiJennifer AlessiKristan Berona. All are white women. 

Very disappointing and unacceptable.

I am truly not suprised

Sister Soujah is powerful and important underground black female figure. I would like to find out who your readers would like to see play out the characters in her novels. Winter does not necessarily need to be mixed or light skin, but I believe must be exceptionally attractive and of Afro-Latino origin. Sister Souljah wanted the readers to be educated about the population of Africans, through the Trans Atlantic slave trade, that have existed in the Latin Americas since slavery.

I’ve read about Sister Soujah her books are powerful and I’ve watched numerous youtube videos about her too. Followers do you have any words?

How can the website Urban Dictionary define NUBIAN QUEEN as Iggy Azelia. Is this not an oxymoron. The shame and disgrace is this definition of an Nubian Queen was recently derived by an popular radio host who interviewed Iggy Azelia and described her as such. This website deliberately depicted a Eurocentric female to define the term Nubian Queen. Unfortunately, people while believe Nubian Queens were never African origin, rather of Eurocentric origin. How can we get Urban Dictionary to change

Urban dictionary is full of people who think they’re liberal racism is not racism. Honestly, Anon i would not get to upset because i’m sure the website owner people thinks it’s a funny joke.

which radio host is this? Were they taking shots/sarcasm or was this serious? gross man
