Hollywood Director, Lee Daniels: " I Hate White People Writing For Black People" Statement



'Empire' Director, Lee Daniels has a lot to say. Well, not really because he's been making his voice known about the issue of racism in Hollywood for quite some time. Remember when Daniels defended Terrence Howard  against the criticism he had received over past allegations of domestic violence? In doing so, Daniels brought up similar allegations about Sean Penn and hit a sore spot with Penn. So sore, he filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Daniels.  Since then the lawsuit has been dropped. Daniels penned an apology and donated an undisclosed amount to Penn's J/P Haitian Relief Organization. 

Oh, but no... Daniels does it again! This time is no exception. Daniels continues to blast racism in Hollywood.

Here it is...

On Daniels’ Instagram page where he posted a video of himself sitting on his couch with sunglasses on, as he vented about racism in Hollywood is where it all started. “Hollywood has tendency to think that African-American directors and writers are lucky to just be working and that we should just take any scrap that’s given to us and make gold from it. No, we’re artists, just like the white artists. I’ll probably get a lot of flack from this … ” Daniels said. “Change is a coming I hope!”

This isn’t the first time that Daniels has spoken on how tough it is in the industry to get jobs for Black writers and actors, as well as how difficult it is for him to try and watch white writers write about the Black experience.


“I don’t know what gives me more pleasure: watching my story unfold or going in and watching a room full of black people talking for me and writing words for black people,” Daniels said. “I hate white people writing for black people; it’s so offensive. So we go out and look specifically for African-American voices. Yes, it’s all about reverse racism!”
