Then just recently, Crazy Rich Asians top the box office, which grossed $83 million worldwide. I’ve touched on this subject before a few years ago. Remember the Oscars? #OscarsSoWhite? Now that’s beginning to change. That’s great, but there is so much more to do. I’m not going to talk long about it. I’m just touching base because with the slow rise of ethnic diversity. With success of Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians, I’m at least taking notice, well Hollywood is beginning to take notice. In this…well I should say racial climate, people are beginning to open up to seeing something different on the big screen.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For …
