While speaking before a group of improv students in East Hollywood, comedy star and director Jordan Peele said he would not be casting white people for leading roles after the success of his new movie, “Us”.
Hollywood Reporter writes that Peele, of “MADtv” and “Key & Peele” fame, told a “diverse set of 20-something improv students” that the lesson he learned from the new movie “Us” is that he will likely no longer cast white actors in leading roles.
He told the crowd of nearly 200, “I don’t see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie,” adding, “Not that I don’t like white dudes, but I’ve seen that movie.”
Peele also noted that his job at Universal appears to be casting black actors in all roles, regardless of the content of the movie, telling the students that he “can say to Universal, ‘I want to make a $20 million horror movie with a black family.’ And they say yes.”
Peele said this drive for social justice first happened when “Saturday Night Live” attempted to hire him to do an impersonation of President Barack Obama during the 2008 election, and “MADtv” refused to let him out of his contract. He told students that he locked himself in a room, smoking marijuana, and eventually came to the conclusion that he wants to become a producer.
The improv actor turned director appears to think that excluding white is the surefire way to ensure racial tensions decrease in the United States, while completely oblivious to how divisive this sounds to Americans living outside the narrow worldview of Hollywood actors and directors.

GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis Follows Democrat Orders, Locks Down Florida After Media Pressure Campaign
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide shelter order on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 in response to the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
“I’m going to be doing an executive order today directing all Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary,” he stated. “To obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.”
DeSantis’s order will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and will last for 30 days.
If any “essential service” was missed in the initial executive order, the governor says it can be tacked on.
DeSantis claimed he consulted with the White House and had a conversation with President Donald Trump about the decision. He noted that the White House Wuhan Virus task force’s extended guidelines from Tuesday night shaped DeSantis’ decision, describing the president’s move a “national pause.”
“We’re going to be in this for another 30 days,” he declared. “At this point, even though there’s a lot of places in Florida that have very low infection rates, it makes sense to make this move now.”
DeSantis has taken advantage of this situation by pushing forward infrastructure programs. The Florida governor ordered that $2.1 billion in transportation projects be accelerated. These projects include the Howard Frankland bridge project in Tampa Bay.
Sadly, it appears that the Florida Governor has capitulated to Democrat demands to shut down the entire state, even though the Democrat cities infested with the disease are already on lock down. Thirteen left-wing members of Congress led by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead a media campaign by signing a letter to the governor earlier this week calling for him to issue the order.
The Wuhan Virus saga demonstrates the unforeseen costs of globalization, where basic civil liberties have to be suspended due to the problems that globalist policies cause.
Mass migration and free trade come with lots of hidden costs and increase the likelihood of generalized crises like the Wuhan Virus pandemic to occur.
