A white entertainer has filed a lawsuit for discrimination based on race.
Many years ago, young actors and actresses from black backgrounds were surrounded by a deck of cards that seemed to be stacked against them. One thing I've observed concerning America is how we're skilled in changing decks.
In another way of thinking, we're not slow to grasp the pendulum and swing it towards the sky. Could the world's culture be drastically tick-tocked? Yes, just check out TikTok.
In the area of racial casting, Hollywood is in question, and there's been an obvious shift.
Nowadays, television and film are firmly sticking to white men. The people who in the past have been unable to find jobs now are in the right spot and at the right time. A quick look at commercials shows a change from past practices In the event that four couples are shown, one could be bi-racial and one might be homosexual. It is possible to see one single Caucasian or two, and don't overlook the possibility of transgenderism appearing in the scene.
In the course of our development and the changing of our numbers, we're seeing the following switcheroo: if you're a Person who is Pale, the chances of getting a part in a film is low when compared to 1986.
Anecdotally, I've heard from Tinseltown tenants the production breakdown is the need of “anything not white” to fulfill a specific role.
This is how directors envision the purpose of diversity managers.
In the wake of entertainment's melanin resurgence is the comedy of Tyler Fischer. According to The New York Post, the 35-year-old was looking for an executive in the year 2020 when he partnered with Manhattan's AGI Entertainment Media & Management. AGI Entertainment Media & Management boasts a number of notable names, including the journalist Natalie Morales, Big Brother host Julie Chen, and comedian Colin Quin.
“He said, ‘Would you want to audition for Curb Your Enthusiasm? All these shows that I love, and so it sounded like they wanted to work with [me],” Fischer said to The Post.
The months passed and nothing occurred, according to Fischer. He said he had been “kind of just waiting by the phone.”
“I was ready to sign the papers…and that's when the conversation took a turn.”
AGI associate Alex Brizel said, “‘We love you. Everyone here loves you and thinks you're a star, but we're not taking you because you're white.' And that's when my stomach dropped,” said Fischer who is currently seeking to sue the company over discrimination in the Brooklyn Supreme Court.
It's not difficult to be convinced of this. We're actually experiencing significant changes in the way the subject of color is:
“Professor Slams the Audience for Being ‘Dying of Whiteness'”
For Lent A Chicago Church is “Fasting From Whiteness'
“White College Professor Fights the Lie and the “Disease” Whiteness”
Catholic University Speaker Calls for Christians to “Crucify Their Whiteness'
“Professor Suggests ‘Reregulation' to Help White People End Their Racist Violence”
“Mental Health Journal's Article on “Parasitic Whiteness' Laments that there's ‘Not Yet an End-to-End Cure”'
Returning to Tyler — who has appeared as a guest on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and has 146,000 YouTube followers, Tyler says he recorded some of the conversation using AGI.
“I think I said something like, ‘So you guys like me, you want to work with me, you know I've got what it takes, but the only reason is because I'm white?' And he said, ‘Yeah.'”
Now the legal battle is in full swing. And , as he's said, he's not going to compromise:
The author also states that other people have also shared similar stories:
“I have endless people reaching out to me privately, saying, ‘This happened to me. I'm too afraid to speak out.' I had an acting agent reach out the other day who said, ‘You have no idea how bad it is. They're not hiding it.'”
From Tyler's attorney Lawrence Spasojevich:
“Mr. Fischer's lawsuit seeks to enforce the idea that individuals should be judged by their qualifications; not by their race, their sex, their gender identity, their religion, or any other innate characteristic. That idea needs to apply to everyone equally or else it loses its legitimacy.”
Following the rejection of AGI, Tyler has signed a management contract and was offered a role in the forthcoming Gina Carano film Terror on the Prairie.
In addition, the suit seeks damages that are not specified.
“I'm hoping this can draw some attention to getting back to why are we putting race and gender and pronouns and all this before who's qualified for the job,” he adds.
However producers and talent agencies will choose who they wish, for whatever reason they choose.
Keep an eye out for more not only from Tyler but from a world that is in a state of changes.
