I saw #BlackKkKlansman this weekend, and just WOW. It was brilliant and right on time for our current dark moment in American history. Especially in light of the fact that White dudes are out here burning Nikes in protest of Black lives mattering. Past is prologue.
I won’t spoil the plot for y’all but suffice it to say that the whole movie is an indictment of “Make America Great Again” and the inherent White male supremacy of Republican politics. It’s no mystery how we ended up here or why shit hasn’t changed in 150+ years.
There were moments when the whole audience audibly gasped at how David Duke’s rhetoric from the past foreshadowed Donald Trump’s ascendency to the presidency. There’s no mistaking the role White supremacy’s played in radicalizing generations of White Americans.

#CrazyRichAsians is headed for a monster opening, and it’s essential to look at why. A full 38% of viewers so far have been Asian—we’re COMING OUT for this film as we never have in cinematic history.

But another 24% of viewers are black or Hispanic: *viewers are 62% nonwhite*.
The book #CrazyRichAsians was based on was a NYT bestseller. When the target for the book is described by folks in publishing, they say “white female, summer read, book club, 35-54.” That audience isn’t who’s filling theaters—yet.

They’re the ones who might take this to $100M.
If you haven’t seen it yet, a small spoiler. After the first 15 minutes of #CrazyRichAsians, you will not see another nonwhite person on screen. Not even in background shots. And the only white people with speaking roles get played like dominoes. In the first five minutes.
