You know I love you and your butt nose, right? I’m being serious here. I will totally sit and watch The Man in the Iron Mask because I think you are all kinds of awesome in that movie (okay, you and my Jeremy, before he went all rape apologist on our asses).
But I must question your role in L’Autre Dumas.
I realize that attaching your name to this film will probably garner it more attention and more box office cash, but the filmmakers completely missed out on a great opportunity to educate the public about Dumas’ background.
Take my clueless self, for instance: until I read about this controversy, I soooooo did not know that Dumas was the grandson of a Hatian slave. I just thought he was some famous, dead, white French author. (Totally dense, I know.)
Painting yourself orange is not going to fool anyone. You are white. Dumas was a light-skinned black man. Keith Urban Orange ≠ black. It’s just offensive.
