Dr. Boyce: Director Antoine Fuqua Says Hollywood isn’t Racist? OK, I’m Confused

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

Director Antoine Fuqua is one of the most talented people in all of Hollywood.  His films, including “Training Day” and “Olympus Has Fallen” have done quite well at the box office, and he deserves tremendous credit for his accomplishments.

My eyebrows lifted when I heard Fuqua, perhaps inadvertently, playing the role of the negro who lets a racist institution off the hook, largely because he is being so well taken care of.  Antoine, speaking with The Voice, said the following:

“I wouldn’t use the term racist, as much as I would say the playing field is not even in Hollywood,” he said. “But ultimately, you have to put in the work.

“It’s very easy to cry racism when you’re not qualified to do the work or your work isn’t transcending to where you want it to be. Hollywood is a business and you have to look at it that way.”
