Re: “Julie Dash and the ongoing struggle of black women filmmakers

I have an issue with the comment "Black men have been stealing their thunder as of late." Though I understand the point the writer was trying to make, I do believe it could have been said better. It is not black male against black female director in Hollywood, so let's be careful not to use divisive language. Hollywood was and is a male dominated industry and frankly doesn't give a damn about either black female or black male, it's about who is more marketable/profitable in the showbiz execs eyes. Spike and Tyler came to Hollywood with proven successes and THAT's what the mostly WHITE MEN running the show want to invest in.

And Kasi and Gina don't necessarily have SEVERAL films under their belt either. Two or 3 Hollywood films is hardly SEVERAL, but it's a start! The reality is in 2011 black Hollywood doesn't have to wait for Hollywood to get works seen. Look at Ava DuVernay with AFFRM and those using the internet and social media to find alternative means of distribution.
