I think it’s interesting these conventions are booking Neve, Fairuza &, Robin all together, but excluding me. Sounds about white.
Kinda like the press junkets back in the day for the film. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Maybe it’s just an oversight but...I mean.. it’s a film about 4 f*cking girls not 3.
I’m not calling out any one convention in particular because it’s more than one & they don’t realize the casual racism to the choice. So if you attend those sorts of things let them know.. especially if you’re white, I guess.
Btw the lovely Fairuza Balk tipped me off to this all, because she’s cool AF. & scene.
One mo thing-
A Hollywood lifetime of sucking up racist aggressions, micro & macro while white actors insisted right up until Dump took office that racism was over... takes a toll, I’m fucking tired as fuck some days.
This thread just made me rem the shitty feeling of watching the other 3 girls present that yr at the MTV movie awards while I sat in the audience despite having 2 movies coming out. These things aren’t the worst to suffer, but accumulated over the years are exhausting.
Btw, I brought up awards show etc, because being left out of these events didn’t just hurt ego, it had a direct effect on POC actors pocket books & public profiles & level of celebrity.
Check out my latest IG live vid for my take btw. @ TrueRachelTrue on Instagram 😊 it’ll be archived under #racheltrueigtv on there after today.
Here the conventions response... they weren’t going to book me anyways.. now they’re saying it’s because I spoke up.
To any conventions whose names I have not mentioned once.. the other actors have been booked for a while..My team gave ample time for you to include me in ‘the craft’ reunions you’re pushing & people are paying for. How did you expect me to respond?
This is not about self absorption.. it’s about racism, parity & 💰 speaking up is costing me $ but may help younger folk coming up down the line achieve those things.
Here's the link to my IG live chat from Saturday on this topic fyi🌟 Thank you all so very very much for the tweets & support! instagram.com/tv/BtHYUDnhCar/
Ultimately my aim's to advocate for myself & maybe help diversify these conventions. After Fancon, people are looking for places to see their fav's. I'm invited to 2-3 a year & I'm often the only POC at the event. Btw wasn't invited to Fancon fiasco thank the baby jesus ; )
