How dare you say racism is gone?! Do you not pay attention that Black kids are getting killed unjustly by cops and law enforcement is covering it up? Do you not know that a Republican frontrunner is calling Hispanics rapists and saying they should go back to Mexico?! Your white priviledged keeps you ignorant from the harsh realities out there because you don't have to deal with them. Your sense if entitlement is why you are trying to find some loophole to get into a program that is helping to diversify a industry that has long overlooked people of color. Even Matt Damon acknowledged it. You need to just stop. That is ignorant to say you "personally" think racism is done because you never had to deal with it obviously. People of color have. Your statement is like saying 'I personally think cancer doesn't exist' because you haven't been diagnosed. WAKE UP!!! Get off of your Youtube channel, and I encourage you to talk to some people that have had to really deal with this. You sound a little ridiculous by proclaiming that people are trying to stir things up. You made a way because you don't have the same barriers as people of color, plain and simple. I honestly don't believe you are a proponent of diversity because you can't even acknowledge that the problem even exist. True change can't come until everyone works on this together.
Do not look past the fact that ONLY 6% of the top 600 films were done by African-American directors and it is not because they aren't trying to direct or putting in the work, it is because some of the people providing those opportunities because they are making assumptions based on the color of their skin. This is not an obstacle you have to deal with that makes you privileged. It is one less obstacle you have to deal with. Think of the movies like "Exodus Gods and Kings" directed by a white director and all leading roles were by whites and the only time when you see people of color is when they play slaves, but historically, all of those people they were portraying were of color. When you take someone that is white, and have to paint him to look like a person of color just to sell some tickets (which it still didn't help that film) that shows how deep institutionalized racism goes. Once again, you don't have ALL of the same obstacles as a person of color, face it. Yes, everyone deals with the issue of funding or getting the right connection, but people of color deal with that AND getting disregarded because of skin color. Most of the world is made up of people of color, Hollywood is over 90% white. Even in the U.S., people of color make up way more than 10% of the population.
To figure this out you have to honest with yourself and ask if when you fill out an application somewhere do check the box that says "white/Caucasian" as your ethnicity. Does your 1/8th Native American makeup make you confident to say you are a Native American over white especially when you are in the presence of Native Americans? Go by the majority of your makeup and what ethnicity you confidently define yourself as. A lot of people has some small percentage of some other racial makeup, but in the place of conversations regarding race, they still call themselves white. Also, being Italian is still white in public dialogue. If someone has roots in Kenya or Zimbabwe they are still labeled as "Black" because of the color of their skin. So in the eyes of the world, nobody considers you to be anything other than white if your parent were Polish, Italian, or German because even though each of these nations have people with different shades of skin, their features are vastly different from someone that is Latino, Asian, or Black. It's like you being a Nikon and I am a Canon and you trying to claim you're not a DSLR just because you have a different lens mount.
