5 Reasons Why Some White People Don’t Go See Black Movies

The ‘Racial Empathy Gap’

According to Policy Mic writer Zak Cheney-Rice, “This idea comes from research done at the University of Toronto-Scarborough and the University of Milano-Bicocca. Findings suggest that people of all racial groups empathize less with Black people than they do other races.” White people don’t know that Black people can have similar lives as they can. It comes from cultural ignorance.

  1. Richard Webb says:

    When I read everyone is black.

  2. Terrance Watson says:

    Whites just don't want anything to do with blacks, other than sports. It's not that complicated. They don't support our business's. Our films are no different.

  3. Terrance Watson says:

    Oh yeah! What's a "black" movie?

  4. My favorite genre is science fiction. The only real black leads I've seen so far was Mace Windu, Lando Calrissian, and Captain Miller. Mace Windu gets wiped out by Palpatine(StarWars-Revenge of the Sith), Lando Calrissian loses his city(Cloud City-The Empire Strikes Back), and Captain Miller takes the bad guy with him(Event Horizon). Why is it when the brother has a thing or two going on, something bad has to happen to him? Is this Hollywood's way of saying that black folks aren't part of the future, "out there"? And when they don't have major misfortune, they're a sidekick or part of an ensemble with the white guy leading and "getting the girl".
