(Tea Party 247) – Liberal Hollywood celebrities are the epitome of ultimate “wokeness” in America. They represent the pinnacle of enlightenment in our society. If it weren’t for their regular Twitter tantrums and routine lecture videos, we would never know just how racist and awful the rest of us truly are.
Super woke anti-Trump actor, producer, and comedian Seth Rogen has devised a plan to atone for his whiteness by “actively” working to exclude white people from any forthcoming projects. This should most definitely serve as a beacon of hope for black communities from shore to shore.
In an interview published Monday, Entertainment Weekly asked Rogen, “One of the biggest conversations of the last couple years, at least in Hollywood, has been around inclusion riders and the general efforts to bring more diversity to the movies we see, both behind and in front of the camera.” They then asked Rogen, “As a famous white guy in the industry, what do you feel like your role in that can be?”
To which he responded, “I mean, personally, I think I am just actively trying to make less things starring white people, and if I’m succeeding or I’m not, I’m very much looking to have a far more diverse group of writers and directors and actors that we generally work with, because that group is not incredibly diverse, you know?”
“So that’s how I’ve been trying to deal with it, is just to actively take as they would say, anti-racist measures to assure that some work is [being] done to acknowledge that Black people are very marginalized in American society,” the “Knocked Up” star added.
It’s a relief to see so many Hollywood celebrities taking their part in fighting racism seriously. Rogen isn’t the first to “actively” make effort to atone for “white privilege.” As the Daily Wire reported, actress Jenny Slate was among several celebrities who have stepped down from voicing black characters on animated TV series.
Rogen also went on to discuss the way in which the legality or illegality of marijuana continues to hurt communities of color.
“I’m happy, but it’s not over at all,” he said about weed being legal in some states but not others. “If anything right now it’s in a worse place, because it’s completely legal for some people and completely illegal in other places for other people, and it’s almost at the most hypocritical point it’s ever been in America right now.”
“Like when the full-on war on drugs was happening, at least they were fully entrenched in their own bulls***, you know? But now there’s this acknowledgment that it’s not bad and it’s good business and that it reduces crime when it’s legal, but they still are putting a lot of not-white people in jail for it in a lot of states,” he continued.
“So on one hand [the government] acknowledges that it’s fine, and on the other hand people are having their lives ruined. It’s nice in general to see the acknowledgement that it’s not some horrible drug, though my attitude toward it has been the same,” Rogen added. “Nor did I ever feel any shame about it or any of the stigma associated with it, so I personally don’t feel that different.”
Rogen made headlines when he and other celebrities donated to the “Minnesota Freedom Fund” to bail out criminal rioters and looters during the bedlam that ensued following George Floyd’s death.
